A great holiday with family. It was a perfect break from the hustle and bustle of the city.
Nice boutique hotel
Beach front property though you get no view of the shore from any room was told suites do have view but priced too steep
Lots of places to dine near the resort
Amazing staff
Great breakfast
Will return

We stayed two nights with family.Rooms are good and clean.
Had seen a lot of feedback on lack of health faucet in the toilet and did not take it seriously. When we checked in we found toilets didn't have health faucet, hence asked for a change in rooms. Surprisingly they had a health faucet fixed in the same room.
I still do not understand why some of the hotels in India do not provide health faucets. Are the hotels only meant for foreigners. Anyway an issue which could have spoilt our mood was quickly sorted, Thanks O Goa.
They have a nice restaurant with limited menu and quite expensive compared to restaurants outside.Then why have a restaurant ,might as well have a bar/coffee shop.Seems to not really encourage in house guests to eat there,especially in the off season when all restaurants are not open
Would come back again for the location and service but would be happy if the feedback is actioned.

a cool place to chill out in north goa, on the beach, the check in starts right from the entrance, you get a garland made of shells, then a small buggy ride to reception, a welcome drink on the way, check in was speedy, rooms on ground floor are cool, bathtub, shower area, antique furniture.
Breakfast decent could be better, but solves the purpose,
one thing staff very helpful, to name a few kakule, Sagar, Sandeep all go out of their way to help you

Room Tip: well i liked what i booked they are ground floor rooms

we stayed one night and it was not a very good experience. we had booked through Booking.com. when we arrived they said they did not have our booking. we had to wait half hour before it was sorted. surprisingly all other guest were given welcome drink / wet towels etc. we were not even offered even after our reservation was confirmed. staff had no clue what to do. i had to call up booking.com to sort it out and they were surprised why this happened. seems that they had overbooked etc.

poorly maintained rooms, there was no water for more than an hour after we checked in., the bed linen was not clean - had holes , dirty marks , etc. the edges of towels were in tatters - the quality was worse than a small 1 star hotel.

in evening the front desk called nad asked when we will check out. we said as per the norm sit either 11 ma or 12 noon, but they kept insisting if we can do it before 10 am. i think it was because they had booked more rooms than their inventory.

overall not a good experience. infact our other stay at Country Inn and Suites was great. the only reason we had stayed here was that we had been booked for 2 nights at Country Inn and suites and had decided to extend our stay by a day and hence had booked O hotel

Room Tip: first option - select another hotel. if not possible then stay on the first floor rooms near the re...

we stayed at the o hotel in march 2014 for a 14 night stay. we have traveled to Goa a fair few times now and have tried most forms of accommodation from 5 star hotels to private villas and guest houses both in the north and south of Goa although we have enjoyed most of these we have not rebooked for a second stay until now we are going again in 2015.
the o hotel is friendly, good value and gives great service . we stayed in room 608 which came with a small but adequate balcony it was well maintained and cleaned daily. breakfast was great all you could need to set you up for the day the variety was superb and if you could not see it then staff where more than happy to make it happen for you if you asked.
if you decide to stay around the pool area for any length of time you will find the pool / ground attendance very helpful they are happy to set up your sunbeds where ever you like making sure you are comfortable. staff are at hand for drink and food orders which are surprisingly reasonable in price given the usual difference between the beach shacks (which are great) and hotels. we did not eat in the hotel in the evenings because we like to explore the other opportunity's to be found out side of the resort of candolim , I am sure however that the food would have been of fine quality and well priced, we will try next time for sure. we did stop in at the cocktail bar on the way out most evenings to get Brian the barman to make us a drink or 2. this was mainly down to him being so friendly and pleasant to be around and that he really knows he's job when it comes to making a cocktail.
enjoy your stay.

Fabulous resort with the most accomodating and friendly staff, nothing is too much trouble. Great location right on the beach and a short walk from selection of shops and restaurants. Cleanliness is excellent and is the food. Only down point is thet the pool could do with being a little bigger but other than that no complaints at all. Fully recommend!
