stayed at Delux compact room for 3 days. It is quite clean, room service was good.Hotel staff were always helpful.Good food and surrounding were nice. connectivity to different places is a bit problem,no public transport, you have to hire a Taxi. Still I would be happy to stay there again.

very good hotel in a good location. proximity to a quiet beach ..which was exactly my preference. however, if you like crowded places like b. ga, anjuna, etc...the same are quiet far from the hotel. the travel desk of the hotel was disappointing. the food especially, the breakfast was a excellent...would recommend trying the chilli cheese toast ..you may like it. all in all a great family resturant with good ambience, spacious rooms and hotels, bars and beach.

Comfortable hotel with good sized rooms

Nice rooms, nice pool area
6.7
A comfortable hotel with nice rooms and nice pool area (very much appreciated after a hot day in Goa). Staff generally pretty polite and helpful. Restaurant fine for breakfasts but only average for evening meals - and the one disadvantage here is that there are few other options for meals nearby.
Restaurant Tip: For a bit of variety, take the free shuttle offered to Dona Paula jetty in the evening and enjoy a meal at beachside restaurant - get cab back to hotel afterwards.

Overpriced average hotel

Isolation
4.3
On to other things. The 1st room I was put in was damp smelling and the 2nd smelt like a pet shop, although this went away. The food was good although was terribly slow. I was the only person in there sometimes and yet I still had to ask for the bill 3 times. The hotel is in the middle of nowhere and they charge silly amounts for cabs. Use of the shared private beach was nice, although don't even think about sitting on a bed as they belong to the other hotel and their security guard blows a whistle and tells you to get off!

Good hotel in a remote location

Service, ambience
8.3
well, i have a hard time to evaluate this hotel. the hotel itself was very good and we can't find anything to complain about. however, it's location makes the choice not so obvious. the location is very remote, it's hard to get anywhere and you have to spend money on taxis. the nearby beach is very small and nothing is there. if you like such places without crowds then you'll like. but if you want to have some fun at the beach or eat something in a beach shack, then forget it. sunbeds are available only for guests of a bigger, adjacent resort, so you can only take a mat from sandalwood hotel and lye directly on the sand. if you're fine with those inconvenience than you can choose the hotel and you won't be disappointed.

The taxi drivers drive like crazy and it is expensive even if you dont go far.
Nightlife Tip: Dont go two guys, rather take the wifes with.

Good Hotel

Proximity to Beach
6.3
i m very regular visitor to goa. although the hotel is good nothing to complain about but for me its proximity and availability of transport vehicle is always important as i spend lots of time at casino. the vehicles from hotels are always expensive and since its interior location getting alternative were difficult. hotel is nice neat and clean . rooms are specious and for all those who wants to remain close to beach and reasonable hotel its a good buy.
Restaurant Tip: I will highly recommend Travelers who are Fish eater definitely try Sea Pebble close to Dona Paula Jetty and do go to Souza Lobo for authentic Goan Cousins (Pomphret Curry is my Favorite.

" Lovely hotel close to beautiful beach"

Clean,internet facility, walking distance to casino and beach.Friendly and helpful staff.
7.3
The staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel was clean and definitely a family friendly resort. The gym was excellent. The gardens are beautifully manicured and was pleasant to stroll through it. The beaches were less crowded than the more popular beaches making it a pleasant relaxing experience. Overall a very pleasant stay at this hotel.
Hotel Feature Tip: Relaxing atmosphere within resort and on the surrounding beach. Beaches not crowded. Set a bit away from restaurants, need a taxi to reach the Panjim town 7 kms away.
