“Only saving grace is the location”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 December 2011

This resort looks like it has seen better days but has gathered cobwebs for a long time now. It is decreipt and unbelievably ill-maintained. We spent nearly 2-3 hours trying to call up the reception to get directions to the resort with no luck. Do check out where exactly you are heading before you leave so you dont spend half your holiday trying to get there.
Rooms and passageways smell dank and dusty. They possibly use up litres of room freshner to keep the smells away.
The room itself (after lots of room freshner) was passable. You could tell it had seen better days. The shower in the bathroom simply didnt work and there is no bathtub. You would think when you are visiting the beach that a good shower is one of the basic essentals for a decent holiday but obviously you dont get that here

The location is the only saving grace in this entire place. It is right on the Bambolim beach which although slightly muddier than other beaches, gives you direct access all the time to the beachfront. There were very few people around the time we visited and it was almost like a private beach. the Grand Hyatt is next door which also opens out to the same beach.

Food also was passable. Nothing special to comment on.

Overall, a disappointment with only the location as saving grace.

Room Tip: Since the location is the only advantage here, it might make sense to take the Sea View Cottages whi...

This hotel has a great location, a beach resort with direct access to the beach. But the service is pathetic. The staff, be it at the reception, the service guys etc, are very poorly trained. Its a hugh resort with over 50 rooms and cottages spread across vast land. But the management seems to be just not bothered. Bad food, worse service and worst hospotality.

Room Tip: the cottage rooms have a sea view.

This hotel was far below my expectation.
Firstly upon checkin, inspite of booking for an extra bed, the room was not ready during our late night check-in and we had to wait for more than and hour before the extra bed could be arranged. The food quality was below average and needs some change. The overall maintainance of the hotel is below average. The only positive out of this stay was the beach side location with direct access to the beach from within the hotel. Overall not recommeded for family.

Grounds poorly maintained and overgrown, steps broken and can trip you. Rooms - dirty toilet, mildew and fungus on the walls and roof. latches rusty and shaky, plug points dont work, fridge rusted. curtains dirty and the rings broken and ready to fall down. towels are stiff, yellowed with age and have a dirty odour. Had a rat visiting the room at night, also plenty mosquitoes. Food was terrible - flies all over the bread kept there, flies over the fruits, combination all wrong- upma with sambar and chutney. tasted bad too. I would never go there again, and I wish make my trip would not try and sell it as part of their deal. Its total cheating.

Room Tip: Dont even go there

While resort is decent and one of few economical beach resorts, the food quality is average. When in Goa you would expect some decent grub like your sauasges and bacon which are lacking in the hotel.
The facilities are adequate (swimming pool etc) but it is far away from civilization.

So if you are looking for some alone time with north indian cuisine... this is the restaurant for you.

Room Tip: ask for the sea facing rooms
