Management is good, they respond to requests. Breakfast provided was above our expectation. However the AC in the rooms are quite old and not capable enough to cool the room, we had AC and fan on all the time.

Exemplary Service, comparable to the best in the world. Super warm hospitality, eye to detail, and great food.Beautiful pool, gardens, buildings and beach. Staff friendly and helpful. Breakfasts are outstanding. rooms are spacious, comfortable, cool and quiet.The grounds were beautiful and the pool area was classy and relaxing.I will definitely be returning to the resort when I'm next in Goa.

Hotel is at walking distance from Calungute Beach.. Staff was very friendly and facilities were good.. Nice breakfast and good variety. I had to shorten my trip and they were courteous and returned the balance amount.

Can you expect a hotel room in a tourist spot which has got NO basic aminities?
No Wardrobe
No Toiletries
No Intercom
No AC remote
No Room Service
No drainage

The worst nightmare ever with a hotel in my life. Cramped rooms,

The basic thing is missing from the room. Atlease a small cupboard. After a lot of request a ward robe was arranged

No soap, no shampoo, no toilet paper in the room. Thank god they provided towels

You are isolated when you do not have any means of communication. The phone plaed in the room wasnt working. The technician failed to connect it even after trying for two days

AC was fitted properly in both rooms. But how do we start it? No remote provided. Even after gettign the same after 2 hrs it took another 30 mins to tune it

What is room service?? "Room Service"!! we donno

Chocked bath room.The batroom was flooded two consecutive days and had to request many times to correct it. Wasnt done.

Requested for a change in room and even the property owner promised a visit which was not happened.

The swimming pool is hardly 3 Mtr long and one meter wide. Looks very atractive in pictures. So dont go by pics

The break fast often ran out of supplies. Very basic breakfast with no choice and variety.

Situated in such a prime place in Calingute beach, it was a shock for all of us.

Recently stayed for 1 night in this hotel in Feb last week. The rooms was small but had AC and TV. The highlight of the hotel is its location, being just 1km from Calangute beach and 2 mins. from Calangute market. The breakfast is inclusive and is good. Baga beach is also 3kms. Also there are several nice vegetariain restaurant options in vicinity.

Overall a recommened stay if you wish to use room just for sleeping and are looking to explore Goa and its beaches during daytime.
