It's located in south Goa (Quieter than North) which is relatively private and very quiet on weekdays. The property has a large pool and some of the rooms that open into a wading pool - which is fantastic. We were on an all inclusive deal. The hotel was very full (presumably due to back to back weddings) but did not interfere with our plans. You can usually tell how the services are going to be from the time you are picked up from the airport and this was bang on. We were on our way to the property within 10 minutes of being picked up and took about 45 minutes.
We were pleasantly surprised by the personalized attention in spite of a large group checking out that day. I remember Sinfo (Name of staffer) helping us with the formalities and ensuring that we did not miss on our lunch which was well beyond the buffet hours.
We requested for adjoining rooms (since we were 2 families with young kids) and we got the same (132+133) which opened right onto the meandering pool (this is definitely the USP of the property) and worth every rupee that we paid.
The rooms were extremely comfortable/neat and clean with safety lockers/LCD TV/Great AirCon and the housekeeping did a good job to rectify small deficiencies.
The food service in the Waterfall cafe was not only fantastic but the choices were brilliant. Add to that more than accommodating staff (special mention of Pradeep and Sunita) who took excellent care of us and our kids (Thanks Guys!! You rock!!)
The blue lagoon (Swim up bar in the pool) was ok with basic drinks and snacks. The shacks were closed (which is understandable at this point of time) but the beach was pretty amazing.
The casino (dunes) was little let down and isnt a great experience when visiting with families and I would avoid taking ladies there. Although we did end up winning some monies but could not get the ladies involved which was a bit let down.
The Maya spa was really good and we enjoyed a good relaxing massage, steam and the jacuzzi.
All in all, we were extremely happy with our overall experience (Thanks Nitin & team) and for ensuring we are coming back next year!
