We emailed the hotel before we arrived to ask for an upgrade if available as this was a holiday to celebrate my husbands 40th birthday. They emailed me straight back and did indeed upgrade us. We had a fantastic holiday, the hotel is exceptionally clean and the staff were very friendly, nothing was too much trouble. We will definitely be back!

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the pool.

Just returned from our two week stay at Ocean Palms Resort. Lovely hotel and we were lucky enough to be upgraded to a suite which had a good quality mini fridge, tea and coffee facility with beverages replaced every day, flat screen tv in both rooms, lots of plugs, good aircon, comfortable beds and pillows, immaculate bed linen and towels, toiletries and nice balcony. Best of all were the amazing staff: always courteous, hard-working, immaculate staff who could not do enough for you. Great 2 for 1, 2 hour happy hour with very good quality drinks, best mohitos' in Calangute. Small pool which we only used twice as the beach and sea which is an interesting and eye opening 10 minute walk away was just too inviting.

Room Tip: The pool view rooms looked good but we preferred ours at the back of the hotel, not as pretty a view...

Great hotel, really friendly staff and and ideal location set between Calangute and Candolim. The beach can be easily reached by foot (500m) by crossing the fairly busy main road and heading down Holiday Street. A smallish pool with around 10 sunbeds are availalbe to guests. Two really great restaurants are located very near by (Kebabs & Curries and Taramin) which I shall review later. Hotel served a good breakfast with an egg counter for fresh omelettes, fried eggs, etc.

The only downside were the amount of Russians staying at the hotel and in the surrounding area - not the hotel's fault but more to do with the price of visas for UK tourists. There were a large group of Russian twentysomethings staying at our hotel. They tended to buy their alcohol from the supermarket and drink around the pool in the evenings. The noise was horrendous, and we had to complain several times to the hotel management. They were still drinking upto 1am even though the hotel bar shuts at 11pm. One night we could clearly smell drugs being smoked from the pool area as well. I would suggest the hotel review their policy on bringing in alcohol from outside and also having a curfew in the outside areas.

Room Tip: Pool facing rooms have a nice view but can be noisy if people sit around the pool late at night.

Dear Sir,

Namaste.

Thank you for your valuable feedback.

We are delighted you enjoyed you stay appreciated the services food and hospitality by our team.
We have noted your comment on outside food and beverage and pleased to inform you that it is not encouraged at all. The night in question was a birthday of another guest that exceeded their time limit , we regret this. We are also pleased to inform you we are putting up a signage with regard to outside food and beverages not being allowed in the hotel premises.

Guests are allowed to sit by the pool until the restaurant is open ,needless to mention they order from our restaurant. Drugs of any kind is strictly not permitted in our hotel and our security personnel are trained to be vigilant in this respect as well. This is the reason you will observe that we are catering mostly to families and couples who feel completely safe staying with us.

Thank you for taking the time to write your review and recommending us. We look forward to being of service to you again.

Warm Regards,

Anil Singh Rathore.

Requested poolside room but none available on arrival but was promised we could change as soon as a room was available thought this was unlikely but after two days told we could move rooms. Excellent staff couldn't do enough for you. Good breakfast. Could have provided more sunbeds beside the pool and these need to be replaced as old and very uncomfortable! Good quiet location in lane off main Calangute road.

Room Tip: Best rooms are facing pool where you have the sun all day. Book in advance if possible.

This hotel was nice but it was loud in the mornings after 7 am so if you want to sleep in, it's difficult. Also, the shower floods slightly into the bathroom so that was annoying cause we ended many more towels than usual. Overall, was a good place to stay.

Dear Sir,

Namaste.

Thank you for your valuable feedback.

We are glad you liked our hotel and appreciated our overall hospitality. We have noted your comment on the noise. This mainly happens as guests rush for breakfast and proceed for sightseeing after so there is a bit of noise while opening and shutting doors by other guests which really cannot be controlled at all times with children around.

Your point of the shower water is also noted and being looked into subsequently corrective measure will be taken .

We look forward to being of service to you again .
