I went to Goa with my friends and booked this hotel from a travel agent in Pune. We went there in Taxi also booked via the same travel agent. We paid Rs.2000 for each room and booked two rooms. However when we reached the hotel, we couldn't believe the poor condition it is in. The outside is not painted well, there are mud marks all over. It doesn't feel like a good hotel at all. The condition was same inside too, dust everywhere. However the condition of rooms was pretty good. The cushions were comfortable and so were the beds. I couldn't say the same for bathrooms or the small swimming pool in the backyard. It seemed like they never clean the bathrooms. There were TVs in all rooms, but none of them work. We didn't mind the non-working of TVs, but the food was very poor. Dirty dishes, dirty waiters. We declined the food at an instant and went to the beach to eat. One good thing about the hotel is that it is placed in Panaji, which is good as you are in the Middle of Goa and every beach/site is the same distance. Also, because it is in the city, finding food and other essentials is very easy.
My verdict: Don't stay at this hotel if you are paying more than Rs. 500 per rooms per night.
