This was my second stay at the O Hotel Goa, and I must say that the standards have come down, if only slightly. The property itself is great, with a beach all to itself and decent facilities, and the location (just 3 minutes scooter ride away from Candolim village, and 15 minutes from the hub of Baga) is superb. However, the service and the staff attitude needs to catch up.
The breakfast spread is very good, but there's never enough seating available. The room was quite comfortable, although the balcony is so tiny I think it's more a case of the architect having some spare space available rather than being a planned balcony. The shower is attached to the bathtub, so it's a bit of a clamber to get in and have a shower. Tall people (like myself) will bang their head into the rain-shower head :-D
At the end of the day, this is Goa. You don't come here expecting to use five-star facilities in your hotel. But when you're shelling out as much money (when most people prefer to stay in shacks in Goa), you expect your money to buy you something. It buys you location, it buys you a private beach, it buys you comfortable beds, but it does not buy you 4-star service.
