This is our 2nd year at the Osborne and we enjoyed our holiday. You have to accept you are in a 2 star hotel in India. Relax and you will enjoy. If you go looking for problems you will find them. The Osborne has okay rooms and not so okay rooms. We initially were put in a not so good room but after speaking to the nice Reception staff they moved us to a room in phase 3. This was the phase we stayed in on our last visit. The electricity went off alot, the shower was sometimes warm sometimes cold and you hang your clothes up in a metal wardrobe. If you find any of these faults a problem then the Osborne isn't for you. The rooms are cleaned daily but if you aren't happy with anything they'll correct it. But be reasonable...a pillow, bed sheets they can change but they cannot re decorate or get you a double duvan.
There is plenty of places to eat, drink and sightsee nearby. The best 2 restaurants we discovered were I95 and Chef Suoymen Kitchen. Both of these restaurants are slightly more expensive for Goa but have 5* service and food. Our favourite Beach Shack was Aggies Cafe which has excellent food. Aggie and his staff will look after you very well and they don't allow beach sellers near you. Upstairs in Babutes has the best people watching bar in Calangute, great for watching the crazy world go by below.
One small tip for first timers...don't let the Taxi drivers organise your holiday. They sit outside reception and if you let them would organise your entire holiday with trips. Use the Tuk Tuk's. They are much better fun and the drivers don't try and sell you trip after trip.
Go to the Osborne and enjoy Goa!
