I stayed in hotel Acacia for 5 days last week... located at one of the best areas in North Goa...this hotel looks quite attractive from outside... and even rooms are very nicely done as far as interiors are concerned... still when u stay there u experience the fact that they have not paid attention to details .!!! they claim to be a four-star property yet lack basic items provided by hotels of 4-star category... no hair dryers in bathroom.. no bath robes...they do not replenish the toiletries on a daily basis... there is water logging in bathrooms...no carpets and doormats in room.. as a result there is dirt and water all over the place once u come out after a shower...no stationary items are provided which every decent hotel provides.. no newspaper is provided which even basic hotels provide...the balcony door was faulty... so one has to be careful with infants... the bathroom doors were also noisy and transparent... there was a basic fault in the designing of swimming pool...it is situated right in front of their open air restaurant where breakfast and dinner is served.. there is no enclosure for changing and shower outside the swimming pool... which makes it quite embarrassing for the guests to change in front of the diners... As regards food... F&B is quite expensive... it can be gauged from the fact that small kitkat bar which costs rs 10 outside was placed at rs 75 in the minibar...the quality of breakfast served was also not up to the mark... menu was quite repetitive and food was mediocre in taste...
At the same time i must highlight the fact that the staff is very helpful.. caring and receptive. right from the bellboys to the watchmen and guards outside... to the receptionists and the attendants at the restaurant.. all attend to guests with utmost warmth. If they address some of the minor issues and faults it can undoubtedly become one of the best hotels in and around Candolim.
