After booking this hotel for a short break from North Goa we were a bit apprehensive as there were no reviews. However our fears were quickly dispelled the moment we arrived. From the manager Donald right down to the cleaning staff each and everyone of them went out of their way to please. The hotel is near enough on the beach. The wooden bungalows are very comfortable each with its own private veranda. The bed linen and towels were very good quality and fresh towels were provided each day. Powerful shower in a wet room style modern bathroom with separate w.c.. There was a full length mirror but an additional vanity type mirror would have been useful. Hair dryer was not hard wired but provided by reception on request. Breakfast was not buffet as advertised but served to you in the restaurant. The variety of food items on offer were the usual juices,cereals,eggs etc. We had lunch by the pool each day. The choice was limited but what we got was good and quite reasonably priced. It's the same menu to choose from throughout the day and evening. Again very limited choice for dinner. The service was good but a little slow and the vegetables served with my steak were cold when they arrived. My husband had an Indian meal which he rated as excellent. As this is a recently opened hotel there are bound to be teething problems. The gardens are magnificent and well maintained. A special mention goes to Raymun on reception as he went the extra mile to make sure we had everything we needed. We loved this hotel so much so we stayed an extra night.
