Riva - excellent location, great beach, but....
Excellent location, very private and clean beach. Nice pool, okay good at the restaurant. Breakfast spread is very very poor. Staff is highly undertrained. The hotel needs to work way more on the services, reception staff were not very welcoming. The internet was slow was most of the times.

Beautiful Resort
This resort is one of the prettiest we have ever seen in India. The lawn, the coconuts trees, the swimming pool the decorations around the lawn is well thought out. Very pretty. It is so close to the beach and the walk path to the beach is lovely. The receptionists were very helpful and very accommodating to the best of their abilities. The restaurant has good tasting food, however breakfast was not that great. The waiters are a little out of their service element. Only one waiter was good - the rest are not service oriented. They like to hurdled together doing their own stuff. We would have loved the wifi to be better - much better. It was too slow and keep dropping frequently. The other thing was the blackouts - it happened a few times while we were in the room. Sadly on our last day just before checking the resort had some water problems and we couldn't shower. We spoke to the nice receptionist and she said there was a pipe burst down the road or something to that effect and the hotel was working on it. She decided to sent us a pail of water to shower before we had to leave. We were pleasantly grateful to her and her decision. In spite of all this I do recommend staying here. Also like to mention that the resort have drivers waiting outside in queue to take you around Goa. We had a driver named John D'Souza - he is an excellent driver, very knowledgeable and have a chat with him on things to do in Goa. He is pretty good. The next time, we will let him tailor our day, giving him a picture of what we would like to do.

Great location, no Hot water!!
I booked this place to celebrate my wife's birthday with our two year old daughter. The property is amazing, anybody will love it, really scenic. We were there during the monsoons and the rooms were damp and smelly. There was a bathtub but no hot water, we complained to the management and they said since there is no sunshine the solar heaters aint working. Such a bummer. The room service food is really average for the price. Its better to go to a local bar the food is way better and cheaper. Other than that, great place.

Excellent Stay!
Stayed here for two nights in July. Although the resort is approximately 60 km from Dabolim airport, it is well worth the distance. Located in a very serene part of Goa, this is the perfect place to relax, contemplate and soak in the sun away from the hustle and crowds of Baga and Calingute. The resort sprawls across a huge property with excellent amenities. Mandrem beach is a 5 minute walk from the resort and is certainly one of the most peaceful beaches in Goa. The resort also offers activities such as kayaking to the residents.
