Previous excellent reviews made this our choice on a return visit to Goa – and we were not disappointed!
Casa de Cris is located in the centre of Mobor along a lane next to the large, blue Saga shop, just a short walk away from the beach. The family own several businesses here - including Mike’s Place opposite where breakfast is taken.
All staff were welcoming and friendly. The building is fairly new and built in typical Goan/Portuguese style. The rooms were large, with grand balconies. The rooms were simply, but adequately furnished with a large king-sized bed (firm, but we slept soundly) kettle & cups, TV, fridge, table & chairs along with a wardrobe – although a bit more storage for clothes would have been appreciated! Air conditioning and a fan kept the room nice and cool.
The en-suite bathroom was great, with a powerful shower and plenty of towels which were changed daily. In terms of cleanliness, the room was immaculate – possibly the best we have stayed in anywhere, not a speck of dust or fluff even under the bed. The balcony was also swept and wiped daily. I hope Casa de Cris keep this standard up.
Breakfast – included in the price was a typical Indian breakfast of fruit juice, eggs and toast served with a light brown liquid which might have been coffee!
Mike’s Place is extremely popular with tourists, we enjoyed some of the music were pleased that it stopped at 11.00 pm and so did not disturb us at all. If this is not your thing it is still quite possible to find a quiet place to eat and relax in the resort.
Mobor has changed greatly since our last village. New buildings are springing up all over the place, displacing the original Goan families living under the palm trees with their animals. The restaurants seem to serve more international food now and less Goan/Indian items. A great shame in my opinion, one of the joys of travelling is to sample local cuisine. However the weather was fantastic, the beach excellent, the sea warm (saw my first sea snake) and the people genuinely friendly and welcoming. We left feeling relaxed and contented!
In conclusion, for facilities, location and cleanliness for the price paid I would thoroughly recommend Casa de Cris and certainly hope to return.
