What a nightmare! We are due to travel to Candolim this coming Saturday and yesterday received a letter from First Choice stating that we would no longer be staying at our chosen accommodation, Silver Sands Holiday Village, Candolim as the contract between the hotel and First Choice had changed and they no longer had the room allocation. We were not consulted in any way but were simply advised that we would be accommodated at the Palmarinha Resort in Calangute, 8 miles away!! Surely a week before we are due to travel they can not just change the contract. It seems that there is more to it, more likely just a cock up on their behalf!
Looking into the Palmarinha Resort, it seems that it is a taxi ride into Calangute, very disappointing when one of the reasons that we chose the Silver Sands was due to its excellent location.
We were finally offered a change to the Highland Beach Resort. Any offerings/comments on this hotel welcome. I've spent hours researching the Silver Sands Holiday Village, now all to no avail!!! :-(
