We had narrowed down this hotel on the sheer recommendation of the TripAdvisor reviews. Though initially skeptical because of the monsoon off season, but the stay turned out to be awesome.
We were greeted by Praveen and his friendly staff and were upgraded to the premium rooms. Because it was our first visit to Goa, we had lot of questions about places to visit, mode of transport, etc. The staff was friendly and patiently answered all our queries. In fact, they gave lot of good suggestions and immediately arranged for a bike to go around.
Contrary to the previous reviews of bad breakfast, they have improved a lot. For us it was a good experience and we enjoyed all breakfasts. They readily offer personalization for food and are happy to serve.
Location - It is around 1.5 kms from the Baga beach and the road may become dark and lonely at night. There are lot of restaurants and pubs nearby and some of them are fantabulous. We frequently visited St. Anthony Shack and Brittos on the Baga beach. St. Anthony is simply amazing for late night hangouts. There are lot of other good beaches nearby esp the Vagator Beach. Try checking out few night clubs like Sync.
Sleep Quality - Beds were comfortable and lights are proper. Though because of the monsoon season the winds were very high and they may be very noisy at times.
Rooms - Rooms were clean and cozy. The bathrooms were ok but very clean. The satellite TV does not subscribe to any English channels, but then who comes to Goa to watch TV.
Service - There are lot of complaints about the service quality, but we had no issues over there. Though we never ordered food in our room, but other services were quite fast and good.
Value - We are really happy to have stayed in this hotel and we felt that it all penny worth.
Verdict - If one is looking for mid range stays in North Goa, this place is worthy enough to be checked out.
