“Not Bad”
Reviewed 27 February 2014

Hotel is good close to the Candolim Beach. GM of the hotel is good in dealing with the guests. However, there is no team work in the hotel resulting in not so good service. Manager is not having very good attitude. He feels everybody is cheat except him. Hotel did not provide the rooms which were promised by the travel agent. Possibley it may be beacuse of not complete communication with the hotel. Hotel was not fully occupied reflects it popularity. However one could take chance after fully clarifying all the issues. I found another guest shouting in the hotel as they were not provided the proper sightseeing as was promised to them. They could not provide Tandoori food as they didn't have enough guest during lunch/dinner time and we had to manage otherwise.

I booked the hotel with their staff named aakash in Delhi , and I also received the payment voucher and confirmation slip on email . When I reached the hotel in Goa , no booking was made from my name and the hotel stated that the person was fraud and no booking had been made . They still gave me the rooms but at a higher price . I think this whole thing is a set up by the hotel and they should be punished .

Please I recommend all not to book this hotel , as this is full of fraud and bad people .

We stayed in this resort during our family trip to Goa, January 2013. Overall I am pretty satisfied with the service, especially the rooms. The suits where we stayed is in old building inside rather than the new one beside the street and offers ample space including a living room, an attached toilet, a veranda and off course a room inside with a double bed. The courtyard and the inside of the resort is well maintained and the swimming pool was clean though we haven't used it. We used to have dinner in the courtyard which was nice but the food service requires more improvement as the waiters were not efficient enough and the delivery of the food was pretty slow. However the food offered is really good, courtesy of the Bangali Chef who was very warm and friendly and met us over our dinner a number of times to inquire about our demands.
Now the bad sides, the breakfast offered is not at all good with very few items to choose between. The Bathrooms are fitted with basic amenities and not so well maintained. I had a problem with water supply during shower which is one of the commonest complaints I heard about this resort before in TA. The service staffs were not efficient and it took several reminders in case you have any request for anything.

Room Tip: The rooms in both old building and new building are fairly spacious but I found the rooms in old bui...

We stayed in Magnum for a night (19 March 2013), the rooms are very spacious with many facilities like inhouse kitchen platform, refrigerator, LCD, laundry service, swimming pool, balcony, etc. The resort is situated right in the heart of candolim market. So a good advantage to stay overe here.

However the bathrooms are not to the mark as compared to the room.
They provide breakfast complimentary which i think is not worth for the inclusion as they provide only bread butter n tea n coffee. There is a place of improvement for the breakfast options.

OIverall it was a decent stay at the price they charge.

We stayed at magnum from 18/02/13 to 03/03/13 . This was our 5th stay in 3 years. As always the staff were very friendly and would help you out no matter what time of day or night it was. The manager Sanjiv is very professional in his job and makes sure everything is sorted promptly if a problem occurs. The location is central to all the shops and bar restaurants. There are on going improvements at the magnum so really it can only get better. We shall definately be going back. Many thanks to Sanjiv and all the staff at magnum.
