Its a decent place to stay with family in Dona Paula. I stayed with my family for three days and it was comfortable.

Pros:
1) The location is really good as it is in Dona Paula, and also Vangunim beach is walkable, just about 300 metres away. Panajim is very much accessible from the resort.
2) The rooms are clean and tidy, and spacious for a small family.
3) The pool is good with good maintenance.
4) The indoor play area is nice, we especially enjoyed it as it was raining most of the time. So the indoor play area kept the kids busy.

Cons:
1) The room service was not up to the mark. Multiple reminders were required even for basic needs. There is scope of improvement in the room service.

Overall it is a good, budget friendly place to stay with family in Dona Paula.

Not welcoming or friendly at all, which puts you off. If you are a foreigner you will have to pay for your stay in cash, just ridiculous.
Stayed here because I needed to be closed Manipal hospital otherwise theres no reason to stay here. Not accommodating or understanding. Not typical of Goan hospitality!

DO NOT STAY AT THIS HOTEL...

There were so many issues with this hotel that’s it’s ridiculous and they were all compounded by the level of service (or lack there of) and the blasé attitude of the staff when notified of an issue. When I first arrived at the hotel I checked in and was shown to my room, i was told i could press 5 for room service and 9 for reception. The room service number didn’t work so I called reception: they told me if i wanted to eat I should go to a different hotel.
There were exposed wall sockets in my room. Out of three sockets by the bed...one worked. The door to the balcony locked sporadically. The door to the room had to be locked from the inside then you could close the door and it would lock.
The safe in the room didn’t work either so that was a pointless accessory.
The breakfast served was disgusting, not continental and the little “continental” they had was far from appealing. Stale cereal and aged bread. There was also the issue of the dirty table cloths and the hunt for cutlery.
The swimming pool looked ok if you don’t mind fully dressed grown men frolicking around.
Don’t expect wifi access...well for more than 5 minutes at a time.
I asked for an iron, an ironing board and a hairdryer. I got two out of three, they don’t have ironing boards apparently. If you need to iron it’ll be a two person job because someone will need to hold the plug into the wall socket while you use the iron otherwise the iron won’t work, so doing it solo was long. After “ironing” I left to go to the beach and when i came back they’d taken the iron and hairdryer but not tidied the room
I initially booked for 3 nights but left after one. When i told the person at reception i was checking early out suddenly her grasp of English greatly improved when she asked if there was an issue, then quickly subsided when i started explaining my issues. The whole experience at this hotel was bad from beginning to end...
Not to worry as 5 minutes up the road is a hotel that made my stay in Goa very much enjoyable

The food quality is great. Facility of getting complimentary bikes with the room makes it really easy. Definitely recommended. The rooms are nice cozy and comfy. Location is also great. Near by beach. Really enjoyed.

They seem to be going through a take over of sorts. Therefore their operations are mediocre at best. Hopefully the new management pulls up their socks for their own good. Best to be avoided for now.

Things that were pathetic

1). They are out to fleece you at every opportunity: They charge you a early check-in charge even if you get to their hotel at earthly hours (Since they have a wierd checkin time of 2pm) and a few hours (We arrived at 9Am) before your stipulated check-in times. There are a lot of better properties in Goa that do not charge anything for your early check-in if they have rooms available.

2) Badly equipped bar and restaurant: Although their menu promises a wide range of beers they have only Budweiser. One the day we ordered a beer each they had only one in stock.

Their food menu offers an elaborate choice but they are unable to serve you most of the dishes on their menu. And the dishes they are able to serve you are average at best and overpriced for what is offered

Breakfast again continues the mediocre theme of the property. Stale and poorly prepared ( The curd offered with paratha on 06th Feb can be an example of old and stale food).

3) pathetic and untrained reception staff: The staff do not take instructions well. They did not book our cab to the bus station at 1715, inspite of giving them the instructions in the morning at 10 Am itself. And do not dare expect an apology for it as they seem to think they are doing you a favour.

4) Atrociously expensive for what is offered: We were booked from 06th-07th of Feb (checked out at 5Pm instead of the 12Pm checkout). The room costs us around 5000 on make my trip. Since we arrived at 9Am we had to pay a 1200 early checkin charge, Our late check out cost us an additional 2200. INR 8400 for a day and a half stay and for the substandard service offered is not worth it IMHO. To top it off you do not get system generated bills for any of the payments you make (Could be due to the takeover I suppose).

On seeing reviews for this resort, we decided to stay here for two days. However we realised it was a mistake to book this place. Having stayed at many hotels in Goa, no one charged such exorbitant rates for early or late check-in! The hotel occupancy was not even half during our stay. We were asked to pay Rs.1200 on arrival at 9:30 am and Rs.2200 for late check-out the next day at 5:20 pm. Even though we had to pay the extra charges at the beginning the bills were provided only after we checked out. The staff at the reception are lazy and do not care about the guests. They don't even respond clearly when spoken to.

Coming to the rooms, our room was neat and clean with basic amenities. That was the only saving grace.

The complimentary buffet was okay but some of the dishes were not fresh, like idli / poha were definitely reheated. A la carte dishes were edible. Though the food could improve, the staff at the dining were more cheerful and helpful.

We did ask the reception to arrange for a taxi to the bus stand in the morning itself but upon check-out in the evening, it wasn't arranged. They called for one after we checked-out and the taxi came just 15 mins before our departure time. Needless to say we were thoroughly disgusted by then.

We are sure there are nicer, better hotels nearby with affordable rates and good service. This resort / hotel is best avoidable
