We booked flights for a New Year Goa break fairly last minute. We struggled to find anywhere online within our price range, with good reviews, in Candolim, which was our preferred destination. I looked at this place a couple of times but was reluctant to book as, even though the Tripadvisor reviews looked good on the face of it, there...

We stayed 3 nights and our needs were met. Convenient location. Best points were proximity to the beach, quieter than I'd expected, friendly reception staff. The swimming pool did not entice us. he Wifi reception needs to be upgraded. Breakfast was OK. Candolim is hyper touristy and it depends what you want from a holiday destination. Our needs were met...

Jayesh, the manager is a gem. Nothing is too much and there is absolutely nothing that he doesnt have an answer for and there is nothing that he cant arrange. Good comfortable rooms, clean resort. not too loud and walking distance from Candolim beach. Loved my stay here, will be back.

No room service. restaurant was closed due to Holi & Good Friday whereas the board outside had mentoned 'Under Maintenance'. This was not informed to us while booking. breakfast was not buffet rather they had a pathetic fixed 'non goan' menu. Anything outside the menu was charged including a glass of milk. No substitute was allowed. So you cant take...

This hotel is small boutique. Clean and we'll taken care of. Good to stay for 1 to 2 nights as it's next to a pub/restaurant with live band that's loud and also the management plays music which is wired to all rooms. Could be noisy too as you hear everything happening outside. Nicely located.
