“Pathetic!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 November 2013

I was in valentines retreat for a couple of days. The only thing I liked about it was the restaurant's quick delivery of foods. Everything else was unorganized. Firstly, I was promised an extension of stay which didn't happen rather got a very rude behaviour from the man at the reception. I had to move to another hotel nearby who were kind enough to give me accommodation at such a short notice. Secondly, the hotel is too far from the beach as well as the main road which leads to the beach. So in a way finding decent food nearby was difficult. Thirdly, the hotel room was totally disgusting with discoloured walls and worst balcony view of my life. The room was not as spacious as was portrayed in the pictures. My room only had 1 electric point. The refrigerator was not functional, I was promised that it'd be replaced but they never did. The pool is the only decent place in the hotel, but you can find better. I will never recommend anyone to go to this hotel.

Room quality was average.No Soaps were available in bathroom.Linen was not of good quality. It seems slightly dirty and was not at all attractive.Pool gets closed at 6.30 due to chlorification. Pool should be open till late night so that we could have enjoy and relax after coming back to the hotel.

I have taken the double room suite its more than our expectations its so clean nice and a big apartment kind good for any kind of traveler. Pool and restaurant food is like more good on top of everything Beach is just 5 mins distance market is just next step ahead. Overall excellent.

Room Tip: I like my room hope others will be also good.

I stayed in this hotel for 3 nights and got great discount room charges from Cleartrip that too in the month of December.The rooms are not very big but has all the essentials..Bathrooms were clean. Service was not that great but we used to stay very little time in the hotel. The lawn and swimming pool is really good. One can spend good amount of time there. The breakfast is not very good.

Room Tip: Any room facing towards Swimming pool or Lawn.

The hotel room was small, has just bare essentials(one white bed-sheet to cover,no blanket), clean, though a few insects were around. The day I checked in, it was the Ganpati festival in Goa. The fan had no regulator, the a/c wouldn't come on, there was no hot water in the bathroom. There was a tiny, run down television set fixed on a shelf on the wall which did not work either. There was no hotel staff, no manager; apparently due to the Ganpati festivities. Hotel seemed to be run by a bunch of young boys seemingly aged around 14-18 years old. There is no restaurant, just a kitchenette with a few tables and chairs laid out. The young boys cook and serve simple food, which I thought was a bit over-priced for such a place. Although the young men did not speak fluent english, they did try their best to co-operative.

Room Tip: Check if all facilities actually work before you accept the room

PLEase people, do not go by what everyone says anout the hotel. For the price that they ask its a good property. I stayed there last year for my birthday weekend in Goa and i was pleasantly surprised by the hotel.

The downside of the hotel are too many like:
The Location
The Room Service
The Restaurant

but the biggest thing that trumps in thier favour is the price. I booked a flight+hotel package from Mumbai on a travel website and I got 3N/4D stay with flights @ 5K.. which is awesome and they also gave me buffet breakfast which I really did load up on .

Thanks for a wonderful stay.
