“Average Experience”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

We stayed here from Aug 8th – 11th and found the experience average. We had booked a deal on groupon which included free airport transfers and breakfast. The room provided to us was on the first floor (they only have ground and first floor rooms) at the far end of the property. The Deluxe room was of a good size with a good bathroom. However, the balcony was smaller than a closet! For a high end resort, they had placed 2 plastic chairs and a plastic stool on this balcony for the guests’ seating. The view from the balcony was of lush paddy fields just outside the resort property. The beach is just 5 mins away from a side entrance, which goes through another resort by the same group. This beach was the absolute highlight of our stay, as it was virtually a private beach. The public roads leading to this beach was much further away (and very lonely too without street lights at the night), and most of the crowds from there would not venture this far down the beach.
The food served at breakfast was excellent with a wide variety of choices. But the lunch and dinner is best elsewhere (both on price and quality).
On weeknights, a local couple play songs and entertain the diners at dinnertime. This was a little in our face, and did not provide us any privacy to enjoy the dinner.
On weekends this place hosts a live band (not very pleasant) and the music goes on well into the night.
The mattress was very uncomfortable, and the bed linen did not look they were fresh ones. The towels in the bathroom were not replaced daily.
The pool side was very bright and was mostly occupied by large groups of men. We could not find any pool chairs to sit by the pool.
It’s best to rent a bike to go to the various beaches around South Goa. We found one just opposite the resort at a reasonable price.
At the time of checkout, we were hounded by a sales executive who tried to get us to purchase a holiday package with them. Not pleasant at all!

Room Tip: Choose rooms on the first floor. If you are looking to relax, choose rooms away from the pool.

Dear Mahasayz
Greetings!
We value your feedback. We have noted your suggestions and we thank you for the positive feedback on the rooms and the food at the resort. The rates however are reasonable and comparatively better off than most of the beach shacks. The public roads have been lighted up frequently but are taken off as quickly as we get them installed by unknown sources. the entire pathways and the area around is maintained but that will still not stop the hotel to keep continuing this effort.
The housekeeping team personally ensures that every room is checked for mattress comfort and linen. As a part of ecodrive we have placed personal cards saying that towels will be replaced if placed on the floor or as a routine they are changed daily or on request that also includes the change in linen.
The live Lounge is operational every weekend with live band performance and is shut off by 11:00 a.m. and cannot be extended further than that. If there are groups inhouse the pool area is reserved either upper or lower deck and the other side for the individual guests. Our pool attendants are always there to ensure your comfort. The pool is accessible by all and we cannot restrict to some guests alone.
We have noted your suggestions and we look forward to see you stay with us once again at Baywatch Resort Goa!
Warm regards
Team Baywatch Resort Goa!

i stayed in this hotel for 1 week (of my 6 month business related stay in Goa) during the monsoon in august. i wish i could have gone somewhere else. straight away almost all of the staff is very unfriendly and couldn't be bothered with anything. No flexibility whatsoever. ask specifically for a non-smoking room with a double bed (unlike e.g. room 124). Strangely you also have to specify you don't want any massive mould (and -smell) in your room (as in room 136). I stayed in the end in room 132 which was acceptable given the very cheap rates (less than 2000 INR excl breakfast), but then also right next to the bar which had actually a relatively good band playing on saturday (till 12pm).

Both reception desk as room service are very unprofessional even by local standards. Very strict policies e.g. cannot use the side gates to go to the beach (8min walk), no outside food allowed, usual taxi union high prices (just go outside & find a taxi yourself at half the cost), high charges for laundry (2x price of a local laundry shop in colva beach road). You need a taxi to do anything because it is very isolated. My own driver was not allowed inside to help me with my bags. On the other hand, the beach is really good (even in the rains), some garbage is there but it's limited to 1 area. Unlike what google maps suggests the rooms of the hotel are not right at the beachfront. There was a beach house but it was closed during monsoon. Some shacks are also there on the beach, these probably have much better quality food/drinks for a lot less (again beachshacks are always closed during the rains).

Overall the hotel is mainly aimed at Indian tourists and conference visitors, so don't waste money on a plane ticket to goa and then go to this hotel as a foreign tourist. And if for some reason you do, do not pay for the all-in arragement, go have your food & drinks at the beach shacks or restaurants (taxi required). Room quality varies enormously so make sure you see and check the room before you agree to it. Even during monsoon the hotel was almost full, it seems these are mainly conference related visits. I would only come to this hotel if you are on an extremely low budget. Otherwise just pay up and go to the nearby taj, park/grand hyatt, orchid, ... During the rains they are really inexpensive. Have a look at the other reviews on here, you will see that the good reviews are mostly from local people.

Drive from the airport is acceptable at 45 mins (nice greenery along the way if you take the benaulim road).

Room Tip: check your room before you agree to it. you need to specify non-smoking & double bed. check for...

Dear Pbj155
Greetings!
Thank you for taking the time to write this review. Every guest is important to the hotel and for anyone who wishes to stay here, whether it’s a conference guest, Indian or foreign or just a family. we are not aimed at any particular segment but in Goa there is a lot of group movement and we cannot restrict just to one segment. At the time of reservations we clearly specify that the room taken is on deluxe which is the standard category and for any upgrade to superior rooms or Suite there will be additional charges, specially smoking or non-smoking. Hence the Room types vary which is the same for every hotel in Goa. The rooms are well maintained compared to must of the properties which are run down and have not mould as you specifically mentioned above. 132 was provided to you without any upgradation charges and facing the pool which you must have forgotten. The food variety and quality including A la Carte menu is also catered to a wide variety of guests and as compared to the health standards and hygiene of a shack we are reasonable and much better.

The Laundry charges and any other are also at par with most of the 4 star resorts which you would have probably stayed in and also experienced and hence would surely vary from a local laundry shop. The taxi charges anywhere in south Goa are all the same and do not vary and being in south Goa we have to Hire Taxis from them. Outside food and beverage not allowed is applicable for any of the Resorts and Hotels and this is common. The hotel does not claim to be a beachfront property but according to the CRZ we are in the ideal distance and neither do we have a private beach.
We hope that you come back experience a pleasant stay at Baywatch Resort Goa!
Warm regards

It is not any more India, with share the saleswomen/men on the beach and to assemble it flag the morning.
One is in an enclave in all the directions of the term.
It is a horizontal hotel, not more than two levels and thus not too aggressive in a flat area.
Food does not have anything extraordinary, it is the international one.
One will propose local alcohol to you, nothing exceptional!
The personnel are blasé and not endorsement.
To reserve for a stop-off for one day.

Thank you for taking the time to write this review. We value your suggestions and your feedback. The Sernabatim Beach is one of the few in the coastal belt where you do not find Hawkers and crowd but the alluring white sands and the isolation makes it one of the most sought after destination. The Food is multicuisine and serves to a wide range of guests taste preferences. If there are any expectations our executive chef will meet you personally and try to whip up a delicacy of your choice. The cocktail beverages we have along with the selection of wines at the Harrys Lounge bar. We look forward to have you back again at Baywatch Resort Goa!

Visited this amazing 4 star hotel in Goa. Had the most fabulous experience staying at Baywatch Beach Resort. Maintaining a beautiful swimming pool, well-equipped fitness center and a spa, this property pampers its guests in the best way possible. I also managed to grab a really good deal booking through Travelguru.com, which made my holiday a truly awesome experience.
