“Make your visit to Goa "Memorable"”
Reviewed 30 September 2013

Without a comfortable stay, our trip to a new place will not get "complete". If we have not stayed in this resort during our visit to Goa, our trip could not have been "complete". Such a nice resort with beautiful location, very neat and tidy rooms, ambience and whatever you can think of a resort everything was simply superb. Although we visited as a big group of 90 people, we all felt so comfortable in the way we were treated. Not to forget the buffet that is served, which was really delicious. If ever I get a chance to visit Goa again, I have no other option to consider for my stay except for "Whispering Palms".

Room Tip: A/C room for couples are simply superb

"Amazing" could be the least we can say about the resort. We were group of 90 people but the folks at resort took care of all of us as if we were only 2 - 3 guests. That is how closely they took care of us. And that too without dropping a sweat.

We were skeptical to start with because of our group strength. Nonetheless, the stay, the food, the hospitality (anything you list) was one of the best.

We had many requests from the 1st interaction we had with resort staffs and they were more than happy to oblige/accomodate to almost all of our requests.

The 1 day tour was very good and was planned appropriately. The AC buses provided were good and the bus staff were co-operative.

Rooms are adequately big. All rooms have good view outside. Best part was the swimming pool. I have been to many other star hotels but the water almost always burnt my eyes. But in Whispering Palms, the water were the cleanest and it didn't cause any burning sensation on my eyes. Only issue was with the timing of the swimming pool. It will be open from 7:30am to 7:30 pm. And most of the guests during this time will be out. But it is their policy to treat the water and keep it unused for 12 hours so that water is fresh everyday; and that makes sense. However, we would have enjoyed more had we got some more time in water (like kids). :-)

Candolim beach is at 5 mins walk from the resort and is not crowded. Hence, a peaceful beach unlike some other commercial beaches. Loved the beach for its clean water & sand.

Calangute & Baga is very close-by. It takes hardly 15 mins for both from the resort.

Location of the resort is very good. Overall a highly satisfactory trip and wish we could go again.

Have to say a big THANKS to Mr. Suba Iyer, Ms. Maya, Mr. Prashant Tiwari. Thanks folks for giving us one of the best hospitality ever.

Regards.. Nejmal..

Location was absolutely fantastic.... short walk to the beach where we spent most of the time.
The staffs were friendly and helpful.
Food was decent, and the room was clean
The resort organised music programmes in the evening to entertain the guests.
This trip to Goa was a nice experience!

I stayed at this hotel for a night on 1st sept... I arrived in extremely for my check in almost at 6am in the morning and was sure that I wouldn't be given a room sooooo early. However I was pleasantly surprised when the hotel agreed to let me check in early.
The rooms are of a decent size and reasonably comfortable too.. each room has an attached balcony...
In terms of facilities the hotel a good sizes swimming pool and a pool table. The gym does exist but nothing to speak off as it is more like a personal garage converted into a gym - completely avoidable..
However what works (at least for me) is the location of this hotel which is just off the main candolim road.. So in that sense the hotel is ideally located.

The hotel staff was extremely courteous and i must especially mention Mr. Subba Iyer, who went out of his way to ensure that a particular problem I had was solved.

Made every effort to make our stay comfortable and memorable. Whenever we needed anything the staff was there to help us .moreover our request for a particular dish to be included in menu was promptly dealt with . The size of the room was standard though toilets could have been bigger.

We stayed from 2nd Sept. till 5th Sept. in this resort. This was our 3rd stay at this resort. We always got warm welcome here. Each & every staff is helpful to guests. Their food is always yummy.

But this trip of our was not so tasteful as a group of approx. 150 people were staying here, their behavior towards other guests was shocking as they were passing comments on others.

Because of this group the usual food menu was missing (except breakfast) as one our first day dinner menu was totally a regional menu.

We were to checkout the same night but Mr. Prashant Kumar Tiwari ,F&B manger of this resort made us comfortable by arranging special menu for us on the remaining days.

Otherwise this resort is one of the best resort in Condolim. Rooims are very nice with private balcony.

Room Tip: Rooms above the admin blocks are really good. Some are sea view rooms
