Having stayed here for my first visit to Benualim and enjoyed my stay, I thought I'd stay here again. The price of rooms is very reasonable. The rooms are spacious and clean. Wall mounted TV if needed. The staff are friendly. The owner Edwin is a really nice, polite, friendly and helpful man. The grounds to the hotel are immaculately kept, makes for a nice peaceful place to have morning coffee. The location of the hotel is great. A 20 minute walk to the beach giving plenty of oppotunity to stroll past the shops, catch a bus to Colva which is about a 15 minute ride away. Has I write this review, I am thinking of my next visit to Benualim in December 2018 and the hotel failaka is where I will stay. All in all, an excellent hotel!

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 really attempt to get us a good price. Edwin who we met when checking in was very helpful though! And they did a very decent breakfast

Dear Guest, Thank you for sharing your kind review and the feedback. We are pleased to know your thoughts about your experience staying with us. Wi-Fi is open until 11:30 pm. As we close our main system about that time the wireless network connected to the system gets disconnected. Our apologies if the person at the reception seemed short of assistance. As our receptionist had left service we had to engage the person who manages the breakfast schedule also to handle the front desk temporarily. It was just that he was stretched by an additional responsibility at the same time. Thank you for staying with us. And we look forward to welcome you again. Kind regards, Edwin Fernandes Director - Hotel Failaka

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 this service has not been listed in our services list, as our restaurant is outsourced to a third party. However, guests can get their own food and drinks to their room. In this regard we provide some cutlery and crockery for our guest's convenience. Kind regards, Edwin Fernandes Director - Hotel Failaka

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 slow that we left to have a coffee elsewhere. Obtaining toilet paper for the room was an unnecessarily complex task. The owner needs to train other family member / employees to undertake more routine hotel tasks in order that action does not depend on his rather intermittent presence.

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. As your booking was through an online travel agent he initially took that no bill/receipt can be produced of them since you have upgraded to another room type locally. Wi-Fi access was given immediately to your roommate when she requested while you were present with her. But you did not ask for yourself when you could have. The next day, when you decided to avail Wi-Fi I was only unavailable in the morning but present in the afternoon and onwards. Security protocols are followed when providing access to Wi-Fi, and Wi-Fi is only given to in-house guests and only by the Administrator. About the mosquito grill, we welcome your suggestion and will study the same of its implementation without stopping fresh air from flowing into the bathroom as it might get humid inside. Enquired with our waiting staff at breaksfast about the slow service. They said that you had a look at the menu and left quickly. There are very nice options in our menu and the pricing is very reasonable. This doesn't mean that the service is slow. Not sure about the complexity of getting a toilet paper as our housekeeping staff are always available at their duty hours when you might need them. We thank you for staying with us and look forward to welcoming you back to serve you better. Kind regards, Edwin Fernandes Director - Hotel Failaka
