We stayed here whilst visiting Goa for 4 days and enjoyed the luxury. Rooms were clean, air conditioned and the food was good and plentiful. It is also close to the beach and so it is worth trying out the cuisine in the beach huts. We also enjoyed shopping at night in the street nearby and trying the different styles of meals. Recommended.

We stayed at Whispering for 3 nights /4 days and I have to say we were overall disappointed with the major contributions to our disappointment being :
1. This was the biggest - we were bitten by mosquitoes in this place every where and at all times of the day. The restaurant and the sitting areas around the pool had mosquitoes and other insects all through the day and ate us during breakfast, lunch evening and night hours.
2. The staff ( besides the manager Subba who tried to help us as much as he can) was very negative and unfriendly and their first response always used to be 'no we can't/we don't ' . This I feel is a big dampner for guests at a place like this.
3. The place had hot water only between 6-10 am and 6-10 pm.
4. They had 1 wi-fi per room limit ( does that qualify fr wi-fi?) and that , by the way, barely really worked.
5. The pictures give an impression of a very cool and chic property where as it is a very ordinary property with ordinary rooms , baths being small and ordinary.
6. The good thing is they had some entertainment in the evening and some pool table etc. although it was disappointing that the pool was charged at Rs 150/frame.

On the good side, the staff at restaurant was helpful and tried their best to help the guests. Jawed was our server most times and he was very sweet. The breakfast spread was great and we enjoyed it every morning.

Overall, u can choose to stay here but then it being Goa, there are many better places available at this rate is my verdict !

Dear Madam,

Warm Greetings From The Whispering Palms Beach Resort Goa!

At the onset, i am deeply disheartened to learn that you did not have a pleasant stay with us and we were not able to deliver a memorable holiday experience to you.

Goa over the last week has gone through some torrential heavy rains and we sincerely apologise for the irregular working of the Wi fi. We have taken it up with our service providers to ensure such issues do not occur in the future.

I would like to assure you that being a four star beach resort we follow a mandatory procedure to conduct regular fogging and pest control exercises on a daily basis. Being in a tropical place and considering the weather at the time of your stay there could have been some insects in the open pool areas. However we do not have mosquitoes at the restaurant areas or our food and beverage indoor outlets.

It is also regrettable that you were of the opinion that we have selective hot water timings - this is not the case and we have hot water supply throughout the day, till midnight.

The entire resort including the rooms has been recently refurbished and renovated around last year. I will be more than happy to clarify your concern on our rooms, and also understand, change, and address the issues you had in mind. You could write in to me on jacobjohn@whisperingpalms.com.

Your feedback is back is very important for us to keep improving our services and reach the expectations as desired.

On a positive note we are happy to note that you liked our entertainment and the food, overall.

Once again, Thank You for your feedback. My team and I do hope to have another opportunity to serve you and be able to meet your expectations and also to show you the difference your feedback has made.

With Warm Regards

Jacob John
