“Excellent Location, Good Staff...outdated property”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

Needless to say excellent location a stone's throw from the beach and the main road, the staff was friendly.Overall a good stay. The property itself needs some work the pool is a little small and can get overcrowded. Taxi stands available right out side the hotel.

This hotel is just few steps away from Sinquerim Beach in Candolim. Location is ideal since its entrance is from the road which connects Aguada fort and Baga/Arpora. Why this location is ideal because of number of eating joints and shopping places on the road. I feel this is area is most happening area in Goa.
We booked 2 rooms. One of it was though smaller then the other one. A little cramped(112). It was because it was a corner room. But still not much to complaint about. Almost all of the their services are too good. Food quality, rooms, hospitality, friendly staff, housekeeping and especially pool activities. Totally loved it. though food quality is good, i suggest them to add little more variety.
They arrange for one music event everyday in their restaurant Breeze. I enjoyed the karoake on Monday and Thursday. Thanks to Mr Gethin.
All staff members are well trained in terms of interaction with customer. Soft spoken, always smiling & friendly. You wont feel you are interacting with some stranger.
I with no doubt in my mind, recommend this place.

Room Tip: If you don't mind little noise then pool side rooms are good. Especially room numbers in series...

An excellent hotel. I took the trip in the first week of June (which is an off-season) for my Fiance's birthday. Indeed a very nice resort, hardly 200 mtrs walk away from a secluded corner of the Candolim Beach. We booked a balcony room. The room met the expectations that I conceived in my mind. The room was spacious enough for two people.

The LCD had a backlit, the built in lights from the false ceiling, the blue light on skirting near the mirror made a beautiful impact at night. The huge balcony was very beautiful with floor lights (lit at night), one side facing the small road leading towards the secluded Candolim Beach and the other side facing the swimming pool (The swimming pool was all the time crowded). The bathroom was nice and clean, although there isn't anything special or fancy to mention!

The hotel staffs at the dining area were little inattentive and not prompt at attending orders that were placed. We had to call them repeatedly to place order. However room service was very prompt and the food was also very good. The staffs knew little about cheaper transport options of going to the nearby beach. Would definitely recommend on the stay but not the servicing of the staffs!

On the day we checked-out we requested them to extend our check-out time by 30-45mins which they refused and that was little disappointing.

Warm greetings from The Whispering Palms Beach Resort Goa!

Thank you for choosing our resort, and for taking the time out to review the hotel on TripAdvisor.

We thank you for your positive review on the resort, the location, the food, the room service, the decor, the spacious room and for the detailed and vivid description of the ambiance, that meant how well your expectations regarding your place of stay were met by the room. However, we
are dismayed that the staff in the dining area left much to be desired by way of service and attitude towards guests. Thank you for bringing this lapse to our notice. We pride ourselves in our quality of service and take great pleasure and pride in serving our guests.

Guests like you and your kind words of appreciation are a huge motivation and inspiration for my team.

Its was very good experience. Locations of the resorts are good its a very near waking distances to the beach. As I am belongs to Jain they are very well taken care of vegetarian Jain food. Specially thanks to Mr. Rathod (Chief - chef). All staff are very co-operative also thanks to Ms. Maya to co-operate. Need to some added foods item in pure vegetarian (Jain) who preferred.
Thanks to all staff of Whispering looking after in future.
