we have been here several times, the rooms/staff/food are great, never had a problem with anything , we are going back again in March 2012 and cant wait !
we have not had a problem with card payments (most places have a surcharge for cards and Casa De Chris IS under separate ownership from Mikes place) and the "noise" usually is finished by 11pm at latest, even then its good live music and most people seem to really enjoy it.

see you all soon

We were booked by the organisors of a doctors conference.
Its a very bitter experience we had last evening. After our dinner we got the bill and flashed our card. The waiter said the swipe machine is not working so pay cash. We requested them to add the bill to our room which they refused stating that restaurant is a different account (which is false). Later after several minutes of argument they came back stating CREDIT CARDS ARE ACCEPTED WITH 3% service charges.when we asked them to show the rules they could not and we walked out stating either you add the bill to our room guest or we settle them tomorrow.
So be careful while swiping your card.

Till 7am there is not a single person either at the reception or anywhere at the hotel to help us as there was no hot water running in the bathroom. No telephones in the room to call some one or a bell.

Pl avoid this place

The rooms are very average quality and expensive for what you get.
Breakfast is not good and very basic.
The noise at night is appalling and don't believe it finishes at 11pm because it certainly does not ! You are surrounded by other bars and restaurants so cannot escape the noise. If you are looking for peace and quiet keep well away from here.

Just come back from 12 days staying at Casa de Cris which is part of Mikes Place. It was certainly better than expected and great value. The room was clean and with plenty of space, had a/c and a ceiling fan so it was always cool. Very pleasant to sit out on the balcony overlooking the garden and Mikes restaurant opposite. Everyone was really friendly and helpful, a special mention for Tony, we never got to say goodbye properly as we left early morning but thanks for all your help and unfailing cheerfulness. Definately go for the boat trip, very relaxing after a few days on the beach and the Wednesday night party was brilliant

This was our first trip to Goa. My partner and I had booked Mike's Place to stay for our first 3 nights as it was a good location to start our trip. We were given a room at Mike's Place, as Casa De Cris was full. For 2500 RPS a night we were pleased with what we got - a clean A/C room (which was a blessing after a hot day in the sun), nice big bed with white linen sheets. Bathroom was clean, although hot water didn't work but wasn't a problem as it was too hot to have a warm shower.

The staff are what makes Mike's place so great. They will do anything to help you. I especially liked James, who was always there to greet us at Mike's Beach Shack on the beach (the food here is great). James was very helpful and polite and made our first few nights in Goa very special.

Although Mikes place is a little more money than some of the places we stayed in South Goa, it's definitely worth it and I would definitely return.

Just arrived back from Cavelossim where we stayed at Casa de Cris/Mikes Place. We were met on our arrival by the hotel manager Tony, absolutely lovely man who appears to work all the hours god sends, very friendly and knowledgable on the area any questions just ask.
We were allocated rooms 207 & 208, i had 208 which had a balcony and also a large picture window over looking the front of the hotel,i had read somewhere on tripadvisor that all the windows had mirrored glass where you can see out but no one can see in, this was true in the case of the balcony windows but not the large picture window, which i had been walking around in front of, it was only when we were walking back to the hotel one afternoon and i looked up to see that i could see directly into my room, so i apologize now if i inadvertantly displayed myself to any of you!! The room was spotlessly clean, air conditioning very quiet, spacious, electronic safe in the room, huge bed the only down side being the bed was very hard, which may be ok for some apart from that everything was great.
Breakfast was supplied at Mikes Place - the restaurant side of the business we were given
a choice of juices
tea or coffee
toast with jam/marmalade
Eggs (boiled, scrambled, fried, poached or omelettes)
Live Music was on 4 nights whilst we were there but pleased to say it all stopped promptly at 11pm so we slept peacefully. The hotel also owned two beach shacks one which was approx 10minutes walk away and the other about 25 mins walk, if you want to visit the one which is further away just let the waiters know when you are having breakfast and they will arrange a lift down and back for you, this also applies to party nights at the beach shacks - so you dont have to worry about how your going to get home after a few drinks.
Also went on a boat trip organized by Cris Cruises which is also owned by the same family, it cost 750rps per person and definitely the best money i spent whilst in Cavelossim, the trip lasted just over five hours during which we went out to sea and found some dolphins then we made our way back up the River Sal which was absolutely beautiful and teaming with local fisherman and local people all going about their lives around and on the river, all the time we were kept supplied in drinks soft or alcoholic - your choice - also we had a duet playing a guitar and singing to us all. Lunch was also included which consisted of
Garlic Prawns followed by kingfish steak with rice, a vegetable curry, also another dish which escapes me followed by fruit salad for pudding, and if you didn't like fish they offered a chicken dish instead. A definite must do trip if you go to Cavelossim
All in all a lovely place and would stay there again if given the chance.
