I checked in for a night at this Hotel at Calangute-Baga stretch in October 2013,with My wife.
The Hotel is situated about 500m inside the main C-B road,U need a hired bike to travel to and fro from this remotely located Hotel. We stayed in a room with 2900/night price. Rooms were good,sufficiently spacious,with very clean/new bath room and a balcony with garden view.
No wi-fi (only at lounge/reception area) or tea/coffee kettle in the room. Beach is just a short walk away.The morning breakfast spread was pathetic, and just for namesake. Pav baji, precooked Omelettes (!!!),Bread,Tea,Lassi and Corn flakes, just the bare minimum.The glass for serving water looked as old as the Hotel itself,stained,smelling and translucent.There were a lot of staff who were least interested in serving the guests,rather they were staring at girls taking a walk on the beach or swimming in the sea. A guy who looked like the Manager/Owner, was there too,after a morning jog,but He was being served a different break fast altogether !!! And also He looked too far from being an approachable or a friendly guy.Good to own such a Hotel,than be a guest !!
And beware-if you happen to check out later than 11 am, they charge you Rs.1000/hour- So rude and unheard of. I have stayed in Hotels across UAE and SE Asia,and never heard of such a charge for a pre informed 30-60 minute delay, if no one else is waiting for your room !!.
So in all-An above average Hotel for its location by the beach and rooms.
Very poor buffet Breakfast spread,and you really need a two/four wheeler to travel from main road to the Hotel.
