“If This Is The Best Hotel In Baga I Would Hate To See The Worst”
Reviewed 30 November 2011

This is basically a hotel trying desperately trying to gain more stars and cons than it actually deserves.

There seemed to be bed bugs in our room which bit me and my partner and i called housekeeping 4 days on the trot about the cock roaches in the bathroom.

I had to go out and buy cock roach and mosquito spray and fumigate the room.

The staff are brilliant here and there does alwaly's seem to be someone cleaning the grounds etc.

The gardens are immaculate but the restaurant never seen a single diner in its life. And the 8 sun beds to cater for the 50 or so rooms were right under lots of flowers and plants which attracted lots of stinging looking things flying near u every 5 mins.

We opted for the beach. I had to stay here because we payed in the uk. But seriously went looking in Candolim to find somewere else.

Dont be fooled by the (number 1 hotel in baga) thing. I looked in the Lemon Tree in Candolim it was the same price but ten times cleaner and well kept.

The hotel is also full of none speaking english tourists so the best you can hope for is a book dont expect a conversation.

Nice renovated hotel with big pool, entertainment and facilities. Nearby beach of Baga, restaurants, shops, bars, bistros, cafes and indian Jewellery. The friendly Cashmir Guys selling nice stuff. The hotel has gr8 breakfast buffet with hot and cold indian and international plates. Enjoy heavy breakfast , lasting the whole day. I enjoyed Dal Fry, very spicy and cheap, all main plates vegetarian and meat or chicken between 0.40 EUROcents and 1 Euro. Beer is available but expensive and not good in my point of view. Nightlife overcrowded, 1000 guys - one girl!!!
Best beaches in north Goa Arambol-Ashwem-Pine Tree Shack between Calangute and Candolim Beach. Have fun....;-)

Just returned from The Baga Marina after a 10 night stay and had a great time. Went with my girlfriend but suitable for families and groups. We checked in very early which was efficient and friendly... just what we wanted after a 10hr night flight. Room was very well presented and we especially liked the see through shower room. The room was also equiped with a mini bar, cable TV (with a few English channels) and a balcony slightly overlooking the pool. The only negative was that we requested a double room which we were given however this was two single beds together. Breakfast was limited but they did have an egg station which my girlfriend appreciated. We ate lunch at the restaurant which was fine. There were plently of staff who were all very welcoming and friendly. We went at the start of the season which meant the hotel was quite quiet and meant we had the pool pretty much to ourselves. Location was perfect to explore Baga and was a 10minute walk to the beach.

Very good value for money and I would recommend.

Superb place. Rooms really very clean, swimming pool and the sunken aqua bar was real fun. Location is just 2 mins drive from Baga beach. Brittos..Tittos.. Mambos all walking distance. I was just worried about the cost factor in this hotel. so stayed there and though of searching another gud place near by... but hard luck, nothing like baga marina.. i feel only La calypso could match it..Staff really good..Crowd real good, with lot of foreigners.. Very very face for couples. Stay without worries.

Pros:
1. Staff really good
2. Manager really helpful- in fact because of some confusion on dates we were asked to checkout a day before, though we initially told the manager that we might stay long. But he accepted his mistake, and even though our room was given to somebody else, he upgraded us to executive suite. Wow, what fun.
3. Hotel is very well maintained
4. Location is very close to Baga and night clubs. Everything available nearby.
5. Absolutely safe for couples.
6. Rooms very very clean.

Cons:
1. Mild seepage in rooms. Though its really very small, so can be ignored.

Enjoy Baga marina. I am surely going to visit next time

The rooms, staff, location, two restaurants and food, and gardens were very good. The spa at the hotel was very reasonable in price - around US$11 for a half-hour foot massage - sensational.
Our stay was for three nights. In that time the pool got greener and the water cloudier. We could not believe that with all this hotel does right, that they cannot get a water test kit and someone who can use it correctly.
The reviewers who said there were problems at the reception appear to have a point - there is a definite culture of how more can we squeeze out of the hotel guest at check-out.
We got told it would take an hour from the airport to get to the hotel - however traffic in early November was such that it took almost two hours to arrive at the hotel, and one and a half to get to the airport when leaving - and this was with the usual few dangerous passing manoeuvres that occur on the narrow Goan roads.
Our stay included a day-long bus tour and boat cruise. This was great, but again demonstrated that the traveller should be wary of this hotel, as the only lunch option was an overpriced restaurant that believed masala powder over everything was the only way to serve food. The hotel placed us on the lowest priced tour they could find - we spoke to the manager about the problem, and his response, even though the tour was part of a 'modified American plan' was that not many Europeans take this tour.
Last observation - some of the other guests who ate at the restaurants in the morning and evening were very rude to the hotel staff, and very very loud. These diners were not hotel guests, but certainly the dining experience was not pleasant at these times and our teenage daughter felt very uncomfortable dining when they were in the restaurant.

we are a couple with a kid stayed at the hotel from 31 oct 11 - 04 nov 11. a good hotel , the staff was courteous and obliged well. food was ok but u may like to try out the joints around the hotel as that would be more economical and u would have more options. beware before u check into your room as u should find out in person from the room service for the items that are kept in the room for which u will be charged on consumption else u would get an inflated bill. the experience was ok. however some people are rude especially the ones at the executive level and were not helpful at all. all in all a ok hotel if u want to stay there for a day or 2.

The staff was very rude... was not at all cooperative... in any manner.... breakfast is pathetic... your words or requests are never put into action... they are rude with their clients... no respect for the clients...jain food is not available... though its mentioned that jain food is available... whatever service they give u is like an obligation done to u... its not even worth spending a penny...
