We went to this hotel just before Xmas 2013, I think it's the most relaxed holiday we've ever had. It's got a lovely pool area where you can spend the day in gorgeous sunshine having a swim and a coffee or cold drink from the restaurant at the side of the pool, or maybe have a massage.The food in the restaraunt is very good, lots of choice for lunch and the evening meal it's basic at breakfast, just fruit juice, toast and jam but you can pay extra for a cooked breakfast or omelettes. The beach is about a 15 min walk away but it's a lovely walk through the paddy fields passing restaurants and shops on the way, then you arrive at a beautiful beach with a few different places to have lunch and a drink where everyone is so friendly. A 10 min taxi ride will take you into Cavelossim where you will find lots of shops and stalls selling everything from fruit to shoes,gifts, and clothes. Lots of lovely restaraunts to try. The rooms in the hotel are basic but cleaned every day, the bedding and towels were also changed every day, the beds are hard but you get used to them, it might be a good thing, I went with a bad shoulder and by the time I came home it had gone :-) everyone who works there are very friendly, including serafino and puri the owners who do a very good job of recycling everything in the hotel. We had a 3day trip to see the Taj Mahal, it was fantastic I would definitely recommend it. This hotel gets a lot of people returning year after year, it's so peaceful. We met a lovely lady called Elaine who has been there since November and goes home at the end of March, if you read this Elaine thank you for the most interesting tales of your travels around the world you are a very brave lady, enjoy the rest of your holiday.
