“Sleep to the tunes of the sea...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014

You cannot find another star hotel in Goa, so close to the sea. The hotel has a great pool and the crowd in the hotel is elegant to lavish your holiday just the way you had dreamt. The staff is extremely courteous and they have enough on their cards right from food to spa and the beach to add to your smiles.

I wish they had some of the hotel area for the kids, they have enough space! A replenished spa therapy would add to a tiring day at the beaches.

In short this is a great property for small family and young couples.

I stayed at Sonesta Inn between 28th June - 30th June, 2014. Its a beautiful property with a amazing swimming pool, nice clean rooms, good balcony and above all very good food!!!

The reception and room service staff is excellent. The best part of the property is that the beach is very approachable. There is a way from inside the hotel campus which takes you to the beach. We enjoyed a visit to the beach for a walk after dinner. There is no lighting at the beach in off season so better take a torch. I season time I heard, there is no such issue.

I would surely like to go back and stay there again..


which a very friendly front staff,

Room Tip: best to go for a suite of the first floor

lovely place to spend your holidays, We were 2 families of 6 people. Neat , clean n homely feeling.
Registration n welcome experience was not good , but once we settled ,we started loving the place.
though the food in not unto the standard . there are a lot of places you can venture by just waling a few minutes away.
iota value for your money.
The only problem is the staff is not flexible in their attitude. Need a better training .

Room Tip: go for pool view rooms

I stayed in Sonesta in the last week of June to celebrate by B-day in Goa. On check-in, we were greeted by polite staff who showed us our pool facing room which was excellent. The room was clean and had all modern amenities. The resort is located right in the middle of Candolim which makes it calm & serene and at the same time its near party hubs like Baga.

There is a scooty/motorbike rental shop right outside the resort from where you can hire transport for yourself. The resort is located near the candolim beach and has a small path leading to the beach.

The service is prompt and staff is courteous. They have a spa and you get complimentary massage if you stay for 3 days or more.

The only let down is their breakfast which is poor compared to other hotels in Goa.

Room Tip: Choose the rooms with the pool view

I went there with my husband and 3 yr old son. We loved the suite room (you should insist on a pool view room, preferably on upper floors). The swimming pools for adults and children were cleaned daily and there is always a lifeguard / security by the pool. Buffet breakfast menu is vast and very tasty. The breakfast buffet lounge has great ambience. Room service was very quick and efficient. There are facilities like laundry, great spa and gym too. The walk to Candolim Beach is just 5 mins from the resort gardens. Candolim beach is very beautiful and almost secluded during early mornings and some evenings. The resort itself is about 5 km from Calangute and is well connected by local buses. We travelled by these local buses all the time. You have to walk for 10 mins on foot from the resort to main road to catch the bus. It might be difficult with kids. However just outside the resort you can hire taxis or bikes. For dining we didn't prefer this restaurant as the menu looks expensive. The restaurant menu card in the hotel rooms do not have cheaper items mentioned, but these are available if you go in person to the restaurant. Food taste is very good. I would recommend this to any family who are travelling to North Goa, and don't want to stay in crowded areas.

Room Tip: You can select a suite room with a pool view. It is good to select a room on the upper floors as it...

This was our second visit to goa and it amaze you every time you are ther.
Everything was good about the hotel... rooms, swimming pool , food , location, staff
beach is walking distance from hotel , and also the market and restaurants are very close .
A lot of bike rentals are available .
We stayed for 4N and 5D in suite rooms which was amazingly comfortable and very well maintained.
Dont worry about the room view all the rooms are having great view.
We also went to the spa which is in the hotel premises only it was good too.
Will def. stay in the same hotel at my next visit.

Room Tip: All the rooms are having a good view
