“Great Conference”
Reviewed 30 March 2012

Oceanique Resort hosted our* conference for 1 full week, providing 3 full buffet meals a day, a conference hall as well as access to their fantastic facilities. The staff were easy to get along with, relatively clear in their communication with me and the conference guests, and efficient in implementing any necessary changes. My experience with the management at Oceanique was exceedingly positive... I've had many bad experiences with various hotel managers, but found the staff and management very professional and affable.
The rooms were clean, crisp and nicely decorated. The rooms were a tad on the small side, but the beds were comf and the bathrooms/showers clean (which shouldn't be assumed even in nice hotels in India). The cleaning staff cleaned as much or little as we requested them to, and at the time we requested them to.
The conference hall was <perfect>. Well-lit, nearly soundproof, and spacious, it was the best hall we have used in India to date. Including children, our group numbered over 60 and we fit nicely in the room even when all were present.
The food was fantastic--and every single meal was quite good. We have eaten at hundreds of hotels over our years in India and none of them compares to the quality and quantity of their "western" food offerings. Was this only their set buffet for a group of internationals at conference? I don't know. But it was FANTASTIC. I would easily go back, just for the food (and I love food!).
The pool was nice, spacious and clean, though the chlorine was strong at times. There was a kiddie-pool section perfect for little ones. Our conf guests used the pool a lot and enjoyed it.
On Wednesday night, a Rajasthani music and dance group performed quite nicely on the outside patio, and a number from our group enjoyed the music and cultural display. A different night, a guitar-playing improvisational duo played to the delight of the families (my daughter, included!).
We did not use the gym or bar.

*I facilitated the conference, we had 50+ adults from all over the world (though mostly Western countries.*

A few notes:
1. Each room is has a queen bed, or 2 twins, and is not terribly large. Families with more than one child may find it too small. Plan accordingly.
2. The beach is about 5 minutes walk away, which is great if you don't want to be right at the sand level. It is 10 minute's walk from Colva junction. It's close enough to visit if you want to, but you don't have all the tourist glut right in your face.
3. Internet is the only major drawback we encountered, though this seems to be a problem with most of the South Goa area overall. The hotel provided plug-n-play devices at a high tariff for very slow speeds. In fairness, they told us upfront that internet was difficult to provide.

Room Tip: All the rooms have a balcony that faces the "inside" area. Families may want to be on the...

I stayed at Pearls Oceanique for just over a week and was pleased with the cleanliness of the facilities and the food. The buffet was excellent, with a nice variety of Indian and continental. The staff was friendly and helpful and there was enjoyable live entertainment some evenings. It is a short walk to the beach.

Our stay at this hotel surpassed all of our expectations. The room was spacious, as was the bathroom. The bed was huge and the matress was exceptionally comfortable. The air conditioning worked very well. The food went way beyond our expectations, and there was plenty of it. The pool was very well maintained as were all of the facilities. The hotel staff was helpful and very polite. The beach was ten minute walk from the hotel- far enough to keep the hotel quiet, close enough to be convenient. We would certainly return to this hotel for a vacation.

We have a 3 year old and a 7 month old and this hotel really worked for us. We were able to get a room that opened to the pool, so our 7 month old could nap while we were just outside enjoying the pool.

We chose to have most of our meals at the hotel and it did not disappoint. We really enjoyed both the Indian and western cuisines. Two thumbs up for the chef. He could do a little of everything.

It is an easy walk to the beach and you get to see some of the local fishing boats and their catches for the day on the way.

Room Tip: If you have kids that will nap get one that opens to the pool and you can enjoy the pool during thei...

I was at Oceanique for a week for a conference... and we had a great time. The rooms were clean and crisp (tho a bit small if you've got a kid). The pool is perfect, commons area quite nice. The food was FANTASTIC. I didn't know you could eat "continental" food of this caliber in an Indian hotel. Highly recommend it.
The hotel is not right on the beach front, but we liked that better cuz it gave us a small buffer from the wind and sand. Close to Colva junction, but far enough to be away from the hassle and crowds.

Room Tip: There are only 2 kinds of rooms: with 2 twin beds, or with one queen. Families will be cramped eithe...
