“Brilliant value for money.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 January 2012

I spent a 3 week holiday over Christmas and New year 2011/2012 in Alor Resort, 3 adults 3 children. Overall the hotel was excellent.
The hotel is basic but you get what you pay for... if you want 5* luxury go find it and pay the 5* price, but for a comfortable, friendly and well located hotel the Alor is brilliant.
Its situated 10 mins walk from the nicer end of Calangute beach and is close enough to local bars and restaurants but not to close you can hear the noise and rowdy tourists.
Like any traveller we were skeptical about the condition of the hotel and had read some bad reviews however now I have experienced Alor myself I couldn't disagree with them more.
The food was basic however who goes to India and eats in the hotel the whole time? There are numerous places nearby to eat, its just a matter of finding the good from the bad.

Overall there was only two faults with the hotel in the 3weeks we were there,
1) Upon our arrival there were ants in one of our 3 rooms. We told the staff and they immediately came and sprayed them and then returned numerous times the next day to make sure they were gone. Within a day they were gone and cleared up and didnt return.

2) The pool is situated in a place in which the sun only gets there for a few hours of the day,however there is a grass area out the front where you can use the sun loungers and if not the beach is 10 mins away.

Whilst there was went on "The Jungle Book Experience" which was absolutely brilliant 10 out of 10. If you want a real basic and cultural trip, do this. All the reps will know what it is. Its an overnight trip including a spice plantation, elephant rides, jungle walk, temple, yoga, washing and swimming with elephants then getting washed by it, photo ops with the elephants, campfire fun, a lot of indian cuisine and a lot more. Excellent value for money.

Overall a brilliant trip to Goa. When booking a trip to Goa you already know it wont be luxury so dont expect it. The hotel is basic but very clean fresh sheets and towels everyday, clean shower, air conditioning and comfortable bed - which is all you need as who wants to spend all holiday in the hotel? The staff are very friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Ask for a room near the football pitch side and away from pool area- will be quieter at night.

I got a good deal considering that Goa is packed during the Christmas week. The hotel is not easily accessible as even locals don't know of the place. The hotel is located in the heart of Calangute 5 min walking distance from the Bus stand and 15 min from the beach. All amenities are close by. Dominoes pizza being the closest. The hotel was decent though the complimentary breakfast they provided was very sub-standard. The rooms however were clean and the bedding comfortable. The hotel was mostly occupied by foreigners...who found it disgusting to share the building with Indians...


The restaurant serves good food and their room service is at no extra cost..some good part. All in all recommended if you get a good deal.

Consists of 5 apartment blocks that were probably meant to be condos. My room was large with a large kitchen (although a sign said no outside food in the room?) and a balcony. (I didn't like my first room and asked for another which was better). Pretty clean. Nice clean pool. Restaurant is OK. Mostly Indians staying there. Reception is friendly enough and obviously trained (e.g. they stand up if you enter the small reception area), but not all that helpful (I was looking for somewhere to get a pedicure and they could not tell me about the little place right across from the hotel.) and there are plenty of uniformed boys to serve in the restaurant or housekeeping. They said the rooms are 3000 Rp which I guess is OK for a busy tourist area. I'd probably only stay here if the rates were better than elsewhere.
Ten minute walk to Calangute Beach, which is fairly busy, and 30 minutes walk to Baga, which has a lot of restaurants and bars. Calangute Beach is lined with comfortable restaurants with sun beds in front. It is also full of garbage and you can't walk 2 minutes without someone trying to sell you something. At the entrance there is a swarm of Indian men. The sightseeing of foreign women in bikinis is quite an attraction. Some of the beaches farther north, like Ashvem, are much nicer. Wide open, not so busy, no hawkers.

Goa is an endless stream of 37 beaches, palm trees, tiny towns overrun by tourists, and locals still going about their business. Coconut fibre rope making, rice farming, repairing things. Calangute is basically 4 roads lined with stalls selling the usual tourist goods: One leads to the beach; one to Baga bars and such; one with more shopping leading to the main road; and a fairly short one with a few shops that leads to a few hotels and the village homes. I hired a driver, Sandy who spoke English well, to take me around the area. The taxis or "tourist vehicles" are licensed and the drivers are unionized. We drove for about 5 hours and the fee was 1200. There is basically one road up the coast from which one turns off to head to the various beaches.

Hi,
I am giving feedback on Alor Resort Holiday after visiting/experiencing the package.
I have experienced a worst behavior from Alor Resort's receptionists during my stay which I have listed here,

1)When I went to Hotel @3.30PM, they said Lunch is not available though my package covers B.fast, lunch and dinner, and they know we are coming to Hotel at that time.
Further arguing they said, take 2 snaks for 2 people insted of 2 people's lunch.
Here break fast is work 200/- and Lunch is worth 1000/-, basically they selling food of 200/- for 1000/- and they said this is the Lunch. This is not at all acceptable.

2). For small damages also they take fine where as other Hotels they donot do like this.

3).Receptionists are not cooperative , when I asked a LTA claim receipt for Travels like pickup and drop and sightseeing, they strongly denied to give and not responding and not showing faces towards me.

4) Food is very bad, repeats again and again same food with no taste.
Breakfast always displays bread, butter, jam and nothing much options....

Hence My overall rating for Alor is,
Rating: One Star or less than that
Food: one out of five, Low quality or no tasty food
Stay@Room: 3 out of 5,
Hospitality: poor

Note : This is not a recommended Hotel for good people. I strongly suggest, please donot offer for this Hotel.

The hotel website and other travel sites had great photography,but it was a huge disappointment when we finally landed up here. Its not very close to the main stretch of Calangute beach. The nearest beach access is via 15 mins of walking and you land up on a remote beach called Chelsea which wont show up in any map. The access to the hotel is also not maintained well and neither is the restaurant. The food on complimentary basis[if their package is opted for] is so bad that we had to go to a restaurant the next day. They have various quarters for the rooms and the route to ours was actually through the service kitchen! The only thing that I appreciated was the pick-up and drop facility.
