We returned on the 11th February 2012 after a four week stay at the Whispering Palms. We feel we must comment on a few points. This trip was a return visit for one of us after a 13 year gap, and a first time experience for the other. The hotel was OK ; tired and rundown, but the refurbishment plans for 2012, as displayed in the reception area look impressive. The service was good.The food excellent with a good choice at all meal times.
We were allocated a refurbished room and although not of a high standrard was modern and kept clean. The brochures and any research doesn't tell you about the piles of rubbish everywhere, and we mean everywhere. At regular intervals these piles are set on fire (including food waste and plastic bottles) so that plumes of acrid smoke fill the air. Why hasn't anyone mentioned the squarking crows ?? Although during the day when they were swooping in to pinch food etc ,they were very entertaining, the noise they made from dawn 'til dusk, which although didn't bother us, caused guests at this Hotel to ask to be moved. The beaches from Fort Aguada through Candolim, Calangute to Baga are filthy. We walked everyday on the beach having to beware of broken glass,srynges,dog dirt and general household waste. The "boat" has nearly been dismantled now. While we were there black bilge was being pumped into the sea adding to the mess on the beach. At one point the beach around Kingfisher Villa area looked like tarmac had been laid on the beach. The packs of dogs along the stretch of the beach can be very intimidating - you can tell the regular beach walkers ; they have sticks to fend off the dogs.( We aquired one during our regular walks!) Walk off the beach upon of the paths to the roadway ( past all the piles of rubbish) for a hair-raising way back. The road/footpaths are positvely dangerous. As well as having to negotiate the dogs, wandering cows and footpath hazards ( sometimes no footpath), you take your life in your hands when trying to either cross the road or walk in an area where the foorpath is non-existent because of the amount of manic traffic. If it wasn't scary it would be funny. This leads me to the new web pages for the Hotel - We think we stayed at a different Hotel with a different beach!!The photos shown now don't represent what we left behind ( especially the beach area) and can't be the proposed changes at the Hotel as that is to be a totally different layout.The people of Goa are lovely but what we witnessed and experienced has left us not wanting to return. If you do decide to go : don't go with MONARCH, they are not direct flights and if you pay for their Premier service you will be very disappointed.

Room Tip: ask for a refurbished room

We have just returned from Whispering Palms, 8/2/12, the hotel is great, staff are very friendly and accomodating, rooms are cleaned daily, food was good, lots of choice. Location is ideal next to Candolim beach, which is a lot quieter than Calangute and Baga.
Hotel entertainment wasn't great but there are plenty of bars, restaurants around with good food and cheap prices, £25 - £30 for 5 of us to eat out with drinks.
Expect some mither from the beach sellers and beggars, taxis are cheap, buses dirt cheap, rather than book excursions through travel companies, you can agree a price with a taxi company who will take you where you want to go, wait for you and bring you back to the hotel a lot cheaper.
Great holiday
