“Lovely accommodation but food variable”
Reviewed 6 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

My husband and I stayed at this place during monsoon time. It is about 1 hour and a half from the airport and we were collected by a car that the resort had organised. We arrived in the dark but it was still obvious that it was a lovely resort. There is a big white main house surrounded by 6 bungalows that all had bamboo fences and were pretty private. The bungalow we had was just fabulous. Big bedroom with high ceilings and large living room area and both rooms had windows that totally opened up onto a long thin pool. The shower was outside but good hot water and good power. There are a few bugs around as the walls and doors have gaps so if you are a bit squeamish then beware! But even if you are, you soon get used to it. There is also the option of staying in the main house which has tighter fitting doors.
After settling in we had dinner. The price of the accommodation included breakfast and either lunch or dinner and you can choose from a large menu, so there were loads of options. Because we got there late the first night, we had the set menu and it was fabulous. It started with delicious mushroom pate, then curried celery soup, then fillet of red snapper with the most delicious green beans I have ever tasted. The meal wrapped up with tasty chocolate mousse. We went to bed happy and slept like logs. We then woke up to sunshine and a dip in the pool. Just wonderful! Breakfast was nice - fresh fruit, bread and choice of eggs.
However dinner was not the best. I had chosen garlic prawns for starter and they were dry and rubbery and I could not taste garlic. My husband had prawn and spring onion wantons. The pastry was way too thick and he said that he had no idea what they contained. The highlight of the meal was the carrot and coriander soup which was lovely. Then the fish arrived. We had ordered the same as the previous night. Unfortunately filleted red snapper was not available so we were served pomfret on the bone. We were not told this until it was served. I asked for something different and the kitchen was accommodating and brought me chicken tandoori. However, the tandoori sauce was way too salty and the chicken was dry and inedible. The coconut jelly desert was also not very good and I only managed a couple of mouthfuls. As an apology, lunch was given to us on the house the next day and the green bean salad and mooish salad were lovely but the chicken was again dry and the tandoori rub was way too salty.
However, food aside, the staff could not be more helpful. Diego and his team were a phone call away and nothing was too much. They made 2 trips into town for us to get beer and wine. Also we do understand that being out of season, many of the ingredients for the food just aren't available. If the food on all the nights had been as good as the first night I would have scored this place 4 stars without hesitation.

How easy was it to book the property? How helpful were the directions to the property?

hi,

thanks for your detailed review.

we are happy that you were comfortable. in the monsoons that actually takes some doing.

thanks also for the positives on the food on the first night - we have arguably the best chefs in goa - and sorry about the fall in standards subsequently.

on investigating we have discovered that our chef for the property had to leave on emergency leave after the first night and our back up chef was on annual leave.

the assistant kitchen staff did their best but it was clearly not good enough.

the probability of something like this is happening is very low normally. we are planning to add a third chef to the staff shortly.
