“Pleasant Stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2014

Wonder full experience in this hotel, Rooms were clean management was very caring, They take extra time to walk you through about things you can do in your stay. Rooms were clean service is very good break fast buffet had many items, there is some kind of smell in the rooms may be due to monsoon season

I think this hotel was a good value for money considering the amount we paid during the off season , we had booked a deluxe room with a pool facing balcony that was the best part of the room . The room was spacious , we had even asked for an extra bed which was comfortable too.Dont expect too much from the breakfast as it was pretty ok and the same almost all the 5 days when we stayed there .Its in a central location , with calingute and some decent eating joints and super markets to buy alchohol near by. The other factor which was dissappointing was one of the nights we came back to the hotel at 6 in the morning and there was no one in the reception to help us with the kitchen menu and after a long wait we were offered few options which we could order . The property is good , i think they just need to work on there service a lil bit during the off season . And not to foregt they have a b'full swimming pool ...

Room Tip: We booked a deluxe room , i am not sure of the supreme one but this one was worth the money paid.

Worth Staying. I booked a standard room (ground floor pool view) and it was quiet clean and spacious for a couple/ small family. The buffet breakfast has a good spread. Entire staff at restaurant were very friendly especially Sean Solomon who was personally taking care of all the guests with a smile. Walking distance from Candolim Beach. Would surely like to come back.

My wife and son really enjoyed the stay here. I recommend this hotel for a family stay.

The hotel was excellent. It was Good value for money. The chef , Mr. Kishore was very good and guided me on my food . Good location, near the beach. Helpful staff. The scenic surroundings and rains made my stay comfortable and memorable. The buffet breakfast has a good spread. The buffet dinner was priced at a promotional offer of Rs 499/person , all inclusive and again was good value for money, with 2 non veg dishes on the main course.

It's an excellent property on Candolim Road, North Goa. The Hotel has all the facilities hence a perfect place to stay with family and friends. The property is 5 minutes away from the Candolim Beach, which is the best beach in North Goal. The hotel is near all good restaurants on the Candolim road. The staff and the service was excellent, the food (we had Breakfast and Dinner sometimes). It was really good. The overall experience was great.

I stayed here on a holiday with friends in march this year and really loved the stay. The room was lovely with the balcony overlooking the the beautiful swimming pool. The breakfast was included in our package and was very nice. Only downside was that they had almost the same menu everyday and for someone staying 4-5 nights it gets little monotonous. The location was good , walking distance to the beach. The staff were friendly and helpful. Over all a good place to stay.

Room Tip: Choose a room overlooking the swimming pool on a higher floor.
