Really good for the money. Great location with very friendly staff. Wifi worked well, yet it seemed a little odd that it got switched off at 11pm to be turned back on at 8am. Only problem we had was with the receptionist in the morning. Trying to book a taxi yet he seemed very uninterested and unhelpful when doing. Didnt...

The place is clean, decent, and located close to Maria hall ( bus stop ) and beach ( Around 15 mins walk). Check in process was slow. We don't find any room service. B/f is simple and served in garden behind the hotel. Overall , decent stay in Benaulim !

Dear Guest, Thank you for sharing a kind review and your feedback. We are pleased to know your thoughts about your experience staying with us. Sincerely apologize on the check-in process as our receptionist had left service, and therefore we were facing intermittent issues at that point in time. There is no room service available at our hotel and hence...

Very slow check-in. Receptionist (family member of the owner) was reluctant to give a receipt for payment of the room, and then took an age to write one. Obtaining a wifi password from the reception desk was byzantine and frustrating. No mosquito grill over the bathroom shuttered-glass window, so no way to stop flies entering the bathroom. Breakfast service so...

Dear Guest, At the very onset we would like to thank you for sharing your feedback of your recent stay with us. Our apologies for the misunderstanding with the person at the reception, who was temporarily assisting us since our receptionist left service.

Just when you have been sucked out in the parties and boozes in North Goa, South Goa spreads out its arms to detox you. Quaint and laid back, evident from the no traffic lights rule in South Goa. And the cherry to the pudding was the unplanned stay at Failaka in Benaulim. This is a family run hotel that may...

Checked in late at night, no one to help with baggage to second floor room, no elevators, rooms small and crummy. Bed sheets dirty, ac noisy and not effective. Bath room has no towels or hanging area. You dare not put your belongings in the cupboard, musty and dirty. All night traffic noise from the road disturbs your sleep.

Dear Guest, We are not surprised by this negative review of a one night stay but weren't expecting it. Firstly, rooms were booked by a Five Star hotel in our vicinity for accommodating its employees for the BRICS summit, you being one of them. The starred hotel has sent many of its employees previously some of whom stayed with us...

Ate here a number of times when staying in Benaulim and the food was really nice. Service was good and the pizzas were lovely. Would definitely use again, thanks. Not sure why the place was quiet unless it's because the place was a couple of minutes walk from Maria Hall.
