The hotel was highly recommended by a Goan friend and it didn't disappoint.
We had requested a pool-facing room and to my delight, we were given a really early check-in as the room was available.
Shailesh at the reception was incredibly efficient and friendly. There was another lady at the reception whose forever smiling face really made us feel at home. They even arranged an Avenger motorcycle for us within 30 minutes of asking for it.
The room was large, airy and clean but AC was not upto the mark- the maintenance people tried their best but cooling was mediocre at best. Though it was offered, we didn't bother with a room change as we were out most of the time and the AC was adequate during the night time when run at full blast.
Except for one of the waiters who was quite rude, I found the staff very helpful and ever-willing to go out of their way to make us comfortable.
Though the hotel is not located right on the beach, it's barely a minute's walk to the sand. While on the beach, I highly recommend Bono's Shack- good food and the cleanest washrooms I have seen in any shack. There are a number of fantastic restaurants in the area as well.
The pool was clean and the water was crystal clear in spite of the heavy traffic.
The only thing that really nagged me was being charged 1500 (which apparently is 400 above norm) for an airport pick-up and the driver saying it did not cover the cost of putting the car's AC on.
All in all, a great experience and I absolutely recommend this hotel if you're staying in Candolim.
