“The worst hotel I have seen in my entire life”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 November 2011

I had booked 3 rooms in this hotel from 27 Oct 2011 to 01 Nov 2011. After, we a family of 8 with 4 children, having a long drive from Mumbai, was expecting to have a good rest at the hotel. Just after check-in, we found that couple of lights and the fan was not working. Also the A.C. was working in Fan mode. When inquired about it, the management told us that due to peak season, the voltage in all over goa is low, hence A.C. wont work properly. She meant that there was no backup power in the hotel. Still we managed that night. The next day we again went down to the reception to atleast get the fan and light work properly. There was one lady sitting in the manager cabin, which I think didnt even know how to talk to customers. She bluntly said that the Electrcian is on leave, hence she can do nothing.

Almost in all hotels, the bedsheet and towels are changed everyday. Also the room is cleaned and dustbins are emptied everyday. But here, even after requesting and complaining many times, none of these things happened. On the 3rd day, the room dustbins were overflowing and the floor became very dirty. Also, even after paying for extra person, they provided only the bed, but no bedsheet nor blanket. When again inquired, they told us they didnt have any.

The swimming pool shown in pictures, do exist, but is not functioning. The pool water had a good cover of green moss which shows that the water is not changed for months.

Also the breakfast had same menu everyday and the food and tea was tasteless.

During check-out, I came to know the actual story behind this hotel and its service apathy from one of the hotel staff guy. The owner of this hotel, a Gujrati, stays somewhere in London. Hence there is no decision making man in the hotel. This owner and hence the hotel management, is just behind making money without giving any service.

Well. all go to goa for a good vacation chilling out with beer. But it seems, I went there to just quarrel and argue with the hotel staff everyday and night. Not a single day went without argueing with the hotel staff (there in one lady and one guy in the management and only 2 helpers). I swear to God, that I will NEVER stay in this hotel again NOR I will recommend it to anyone.

Room Tip: Please please do not go in this hotel.

Good Things ... (very little but would have to mention)
Location :
- 10 mins walk Calangute beach
- Quiet place
- Near to Dominoes Pizza
- Rates are low (but not worth it)

Not at all Good Things :
- Bed sheets were bad
- single dirty towel, if u call for towl in evening u dont get till next day also
- Companions in rooms were cockroaches, spiders, ants
- No hot water except first day, according to them theyt had solar system,
They would say it would come, our person will come and resolve it (i think expecting that guests wont call back or adjust) but all guests were complaining
- No soaps were available even if we had a prebooking
- Attending staff was rude in talking because he was looking for his own commission deals and if u deny him then they are not in good mood
- Included breakfast just had tea & bread butter
Ya but kanda poha was nice
- If u take vehicle on rent from outside it is available for 200 but at hotel they charge 250
- even pickup/drop they charge 250 which is available outside for 200
- positioning of pool (which was very small & shallow) is very bad, it is in side of hotel not in centre
- Bathroom buckets and mugs were not clean

I have to stop somewhere...

It is located just 300 mtrs away from famous Calangute beach, Goa. Situated in an alley, thus away from hustles of main road. Friendly staff, small and neat hotel. Service was satisfactory. Hotel also has a small swimming pool.
Bathroom was large and clean. Though toilet bowl was a bit loose, we learnt that there was some renovations going on. Sleep was undisturbed. Mornings calm and stay was absolutely peaceful.
Recommended for value and budget travellers, however, can get pricey in year end (Christmas season).
