“Honest review as on May 2014”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2014

Dear All,
I had gone there in the 1st week May 2014. Let me start with the good points

Good points
1. Location was good
2. Swimming pool - clean
3. Staff - was friendly
4. Walking distance from beach
5. Can hire cab/bike next door

Bad points
1. AC & Fan does not work when lights go
2. While having bath twice water flow had stop and I had to come down half naked with all soap to inform the same to the staff (no landline/phone available in room OR else I have no interest to rome half naked with soap in front of all)
3. No phone available in rooms
4. Food quality was not good at all. Not all items were available mentioned in the menu.
5. Big cockroach were there in the room, pest control was not done regularly
6. Avoid taking room number 202 - while sleeping suddenly you start hearing air pressure voice from the terrace above which goes on after every 15 second. Light sleepers like me will have a big problem.
7. Breakfast - I ordered aloo paratha for break fast at 9 am and got it at 10.40 am
8. The passage and the terraace on the 1st floor is not clean & maintained at all.

I traveled to Goa in March 2014 with a friend. The hotel is centrally located, hardly 5 minutes walk to the candolim beach. We were two girls and hence security was one of the major concerns. Hotel is ideally located for all the requirements. One can hire a bike or a car from the near by place (the closest shop), local market area is just 5min away. Ford Aguada takes 15-20min on bike and so does Baga beach.
Staff is very helpful and jolly, would always be there at your assistance.
Our room was comparatively smaller than that of the previous stays at different places. Though there was a small study room too, but then it was more of a storage room for our luggage. There was a pool just outside our room, it was nice to spend some time by the pool. Connectivity in room was poor for Airtel, so I anyways had to keep toggling between the poolside and room to manage calls.
Food was pretty tasty.
Recommended for young travelers.

The hotel is housed in a Portugese-style bungalow with pillars, arches, old photographs, a large backyard (with a swimming pool) and an awesome terrace. All this adds to the charm of staying here. It's cozy and comfortable. The staff are friendly and familiar. They helped us all information we needed. They also let us keep the room for a couple more hours than scheduled and went out of their way to help us when we met with a minor road accident.

The rooms are clean and well maintained. The location is great - opposite Novotel, on the main road, lots of shops, eateries, cafes around.

Candolim, according to me, is the best place to be in Goa. It is neither overcrowded, nor deserted. It has the optimal number of people and shacks, and the beach is nice, long and golden. The beach is about 10 mins walk from the main entry to the beach. There is a closer side entry too.

I'd definitely want to stay here again! Great value for money!

We had read about it lonely planet March issue and since we were on a rush to book a hotel we relied on it and got a room.

After our pleasant stay @ Santana, v were disheartened when v entered our room. On our request to change our room they told us that they are short of rooms and asked us to move to a guest house behind their hotel. V didn't like it and with no choice, v return to The banyan. If they were short, they should not have accepted our request.

The room was v small, nowindows, Ac was noisy, the sheets were torn n dirty. The bathroom was not clean. The cold water side of the tap was not functional of the sink.

Overall, even paying more than Santana , our experience was not anywhere near to waht v had with Santana.

We checked in to the hotel for just one night. The idea was to spend the least amount of time in the hotel and most of it outside.

The owner/manager is a pleasant guy who gave us a good rate for the night. The room was clean and fairly spacious. We had to ask to have the sheets changed. Though they were clean, but slightly stained. The room had all basic amenities. The bathroom was small but clean with fresh towels.

We had a good night's rest when we finally did come back late in the night.

All in all, a decent stay at a reasonable rate.

We landed at the Banyen Tree Courtyard after 2 days of flying...and it was just what we needed: a friendly, safe place to rest until we got our bearings. I loved the cool pool - very refreshing. Wonderful, attentive staff and delicious food. Only challenge was the internet wasn't working consistently at the time.

We were at Banyan Tree Courtyard for our honeymoon for 5 days in February 2012. It was a great place to stay, the hotel gave a very homely feeling and all the staff were very helpful (especially Jhon, Sitaram, Babu and Shivam). They all helped us with our stay, from travelling around Goa to serving some of the best food. The hotel is situated in a very good place and is about a 10 minute walk to the beach. Our room was cleaned daily and was spacious. We also got to see a music night which was amazing. With the singer playing some our favoiurite songs, it made our dinner even better.
We would also like to mention Shahrukh, he was the most helpful person to travel with. He gave us the best tour of Goa and he is very friendly and cooperative. If you would like a very homey stay in Goa then this is the place to be. It is away from the crowd which we loved. Thank you Banyan tree! we will sure be here again :D

Room Tip: We had a deluxe suite which is more than suitable for any couple!
