This place is inhabitable for humans. We trusted the ratings and reviews and booked this “resort” as it was nearby the Airport, and it was a big mistake. I have no idea how this place has good ratings, it is absolutely pathetic. The exterior itself is so dingy you won’t even feel like checking the rooms, but we checked anyway. First we checked the rooms we booked, but they were stinking. The walls were damp, the linen and bedding was not dry either. We did not want to stay in those rooms so we asked for other rooms, even higher category ones but they were even worse. Their restaurant was not functional and there were hardly 2-3 staff members on the whole property. It was so bad that we decided to stay the whole night at the airport itself instead of this “resort”. Not the airport lounge, the public chairs at the Airport. Stay at any 1 star hotel, but don’t go near this one.

I had booked this hotel from 31 Aug 2021 to 04th Sep 2021. Management Miss Behaved with us. No Service, Room paint is coming out, doors and windows are rotten, AC water was dripping inside the room, pool filled with dirt, electric wires open in the bathroom no one would turn up also if one dies with an electric shock, my guest checked out after one horrible night. now hotel is not ready to refund the amount for other number of nights. dont go by the good reviews those are all paid reviews and photos of property are edited. never ever book this property. not worth for free also its a slum in Goa

A very warm welcome by the staff. urban simplistic rooms, a very clear swimming pool and the perfect place for friends to hang out and chill out Great food and do try the fish in the in room dining menu, really tasty. The concierge helps you with all local activities and prices are very reasonable. Definitely stay here for a couple of days to enjoy the south Goa experience. 5 mins from the airport and 5 mins from the beach.

The stay at Devasthali was wonderful. The food was super and the staff was very helpful. They made excellent recommendations. It was a very relaxing time that we had there. I'm definitely coming back to Goa just for another stay at the hotel.

We went to Goa some time back and we stayed at the Western Devasthali Resort which we booked through Antilog Vacations and we get a good deal. It seemed like a good hotel from the outset. It is not very big and has a small pool located in the central area. We had booked an executive suite but the receptionist spent a lot of time with all the applications and all. Consequently we started on the wrong foot with the hostel authorities. The room was decent though – spacious around 500 square feet in area. The view from the room was also nice. There was an adjoining balcony as well but the most peculiar thing was despite a large balcony being present, it was not equipped with chairs. The room too had sofas and no transferable chairs. Hence we could not spend time sitting in the balcony and this is something which we missed, considering we really liked the view. There is no gym in the hotel. Although a spa is present but if we take our suggestion we would not recommend that as it is really not worth trying. There are not many choices with the massage therapies and they seriously need some more therapists as we were made to wait for a long time. The food is not very special and can best classified as a 2 star hotel’s food. We expected more choices in the breakfast buffet but it was very limited and even the simple coffee was not very good. We found some more restaurants in the vicinity and these can be tried out for better options. The staffs though are very friendly and helpful and the housekeeping also chipped in with their aid. Thus the Western Devasthali is a hotel which is not very reasonable given the tariff but something worth checking if you are in Goa for a few days and don’t have too much time to spend inside the hotel.

Good times are well in the past for that hotel. I am not a snob and I do understand that one should not expect alot for the price like that, but come on... If you decide to stay here, you should know that: 1. They do not offer a laundry service. Buy a soap and help yourself. 2. They do not accept cards, only cash. At least on December 2019. 3. Beautiful hollant beach is actually is not that beautiful. Don't be fooled by those photos, they have nothing to do with a reality. This place sucks.

This hotel is now run by a chain , Connections, who do not appear to care for their property or their customers.The buildings were in need of refurbishment on our previous stays and are now frankly decreipt both inside of the rooms and out, even the water in the pool was cloudy and green. The kettle in our room over heated.It no longer attempts to be a 4 star property but does not even extend basic customer care.Our booking had been made with the previous management and not passed on to the current team. This was not their fault, however,keeping an elderly couple, who had arrived from a long flight, sitting at reception from 3.30 a.m. to 5 a.m was. Even after I had asked to be treated as a walk in and we would sort payment later they preferred to persue previous management by telephone to confirm the booking.As my husband is in a wheel chair and there were no taxis available, it was plain we could not abscond without payment! We even had to ask repeatedly for a glass of water. The free breakfast is insulting rather than complimentary and no other food is available until late morning. The restaurant is independent of the hotel and serves acceptable beach shack type food. The only positive to the current set up is they have sorted the wifi and it now works.The target market appears to be cheap group stays, each room has an additional bare mattress on the floor for extra persons and there was a party of young men having a gathering on the balconies even at the time we arrived. The name needs to be changed from Devasthali to Devastation to reflect the difference between what this place was and what it is now.

Lets start with beginning, we as a family was looking for a place , to stay together for 2 nights, after searching and reading the reviews of the hotels , we zeroed a hotel near airport (as the rest of the family had flight to catch at odd hours) called Devasthali - the valley of god. Location - its a aloof place (which is actually good for family) , just 3.5Km from airport ,nice location next to the so called creek ( but now it is very bad creek or river) ...overall its okay Building - the hotel is very small , strategically build up , don't expect much around your room or hotel Rooms - we have opted for Family Room , which is very nice and spacious but maintenance is not proper like doors of bathroom , walls of bathroom etc ( their maintenance team is quite good), curtain on the glass windows, sofas are not very prompt, its just okay ( you have to compromise with it) Swimming-pool - they have one for the name sake, very small not for 4 star category hotel , what they claim Hotel Staff - reception people are good , prompt (not many staff, enough as the hotel is small), their house keeping staff was very good , they are trying their best to keep the room clean, but wear & tear , they cant help ( Hotel management should) its looks like , the property was ( i said was) nice but now after few years they are struggling with the property. Restaurant - THE BIGGEST DISAPPOINTMENT - we have read in the hotel reviews lot about the service and taste of the food in their restaurant but it was nothing, i mean nothing like that , the restaurant itself is very small , we ordered good amount of food, it came very late ( i still have doubt that they purchased required items after we ordered) , it took longer than the time required, but that is still fine, the Service staff did not had any experience of serving , we ordered for Prawns dish ( quite expensive item Rs 1099 +tax) for a plate, but when they bought it , it was stale freeze prawns , taste was awful and we regret our order and decision to have our lunch in MJ's ( the name of the restaurant) , the serving staff attitude was not good at all but one positive was next day morning the breakfast ( we ordered it in Room after long discussion ) as we had kids & Sr Citizens with us, but we did not regret our decision, The Breakfast served was good ...... Overall, the hotel is okay, average , small layout , don't expect 4 star facilities with this property ,one more issue - we had our own vehicle so we were good otherwise you have only Taxi option which is next to the hotel ( we did not needed them but looking at the location i feel they will charge premium as there are no other option, you are completely depend on them), the nearest good beach is Bogmallo (2.5km). DON"T EXPECT MUCH FROM THIS HOTEL , AVOID the restaurant for lunch or Dinner we had a bad experience. I won't recommend this to my friends & family
