Hotels in South Goa

I am looking for recommendations for a hotel in south Goa in early December. I have been to Goa off and on since the 70s so I do know my way around. I'm looking for a hotel with a good swimming pool suitable for a non-swimmer (therefore it needs to have a substantial 'shallow' end. I also want one that serves Goan food (as well as good regional Indian cooking) not slops for British tourists. I would also prefer it be near other restaurants but not necessarily. I have stayed in Poovar in Kerala in the past where the food has been brilliant and the clientele included a lot of NRIs from the UK and USA. I will be there in early December

I'm not interested in packages. This is the beginning of a long trip.

Club Mahindra is a timeshare resort and but is also a package hotel for UK and Russia.

When we visited last year Russian seemed to be the dominant language.

Based on Tripadvisor ratings for food and accommodation we are we are giving Baywatch Resort, Sernabatim Beach, a try this year.

You can book direct with the hotel but we booked a week with our local First Choice Travel Agent and got a half board deal cheaper than B & B direct with the hotel.

The Holiday Inn is also cheaper through a travel agent rather than direct....another option worth looking at would be Luisa By The Sea which is a complex of villa's bungalows etc. with great restaurants nearby. It's in a lovely setting with a couple of swimming pools.
