Well, the property is located very near to the Beach, just a 5 minutes walk away. The staffs were courteous and very helpful. The rooms were clean but certainly cannot meet your expectations if you are expecting them to that of like a 3* or 5* property. The hotel also had a pool which was open from 9AM to 6PM.... More

Very Good. Value for Money. Not too far from Margao Town. Restaurant was good, though was somewhat expensive. Great Non Veg food. Pool and surroundings were also good. Long walk to the beach, which was also a good experience. Rooms were also good.
