Hi Jane & Liz,

You can easily walk to All Spice from the MD, but it is rather dark and badly lit, also Taxi's only cost around 50Rs for a return journey and the driver will wait or come back for you at a pre-determined time, they don't even mind waiting if you are having a good time!

Give my best to Vinny and the boys - we go back in March!

Have a great time.

Hi, I was in Candolim in January, we (two women) felt completely safe, didn't feel at all nervous, as previously said, the taxi's are really cheap and plentiful, we did feel sometimes that is was better to pretend our husbands were at the hotel with tummy problems.

Hi both - great choice of hotel. Yes you'll be safe, and you can walk to AS from the hotel - but maybe do it during the day 1st so you can know the way - it is straightforward. recommend taking a torch though during the nite.

Saturday nite market at Mackies - is across the lake, opposite the MD, as good as any other market & they all sell the same anyways - at the back of the market there's entrtainment - bands, acrobats & the like & food too - but be careful with the food - chicken I had was raw!

If you walk down to the beach - bout 15 mins from hotel you'll find other restaurants too.

Enjoy & have fun.

All spice is wonderful, 50 rupees for a taxi to get there. Lucky Star beach shack near Mambo's, middle Baga beach is really nice for all curries and cheap, well reccommended.
