“Great place for a good Holiday.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2012

Great place to spent once's Holiday. I was at this Resorte with my family, really enjoyed my Holidays with great service offered by all the staff. The reception is little away from the main enterence, but the Buggy ride was great. The rooms were clean, could not see the beach from our room, but the beach is just opp. The pool is small but the children enjoyed it. The Restaurant staff are the best, they make you feel at home. The family enjoyed the food, variety on the buffet. I would like to thank Ryan, Chandan, Kakulo,Uttam & Vinson for all the information about our travel in Goa. Hiring a bike for Rs.200 + 150 petrol was cheeper then hiring a Taxi. Taxi in Goa is very expensive.

Room Tip: O courtyard Room is better then Delux

The hotel is ok but its not central as other reviews have stated. There are a few shops outside but no bars you have to jump on the bus or in a taxi to get to were the majority of the night life is. I have been to Candolim 7 times and I wont be staying here or around here again. For a more central location were everything is within walking distance then you need to be somewhere around Beach road. The Highland Beach is Central but it wouldnt be everyones cup of tea. If you do stay at the O hotel its in a quiet location and its on the beach or there abouts. One tip beware the taxi drivers outside. They all have 4x4 and they charge a bit more than the average taxi. We had a bad experience with a taxi driver outside the O called Sagar. He charged us nearly double a normal taxi would charge to take us to the market. Then he made us pay for the car parking once we got there. And not learning from our first experience we used him again to go to Panjin. We agreed a price before we set off and we agreed he would wait for us. However once we got there he said he couldnt wait and he wanted to charge us the same again to come and pick us back up. At that point I lost it. We paid him up and told him to pxxs off. We still used taxi's to travel around resort but not that Wxxxxr.

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.

Room Tip: Try and get a room near a staircase. Else you'll have to walk a long way everytime.

Visited this property with a few friends in June 2012.
I was expecting much better than what i got. Paid a decent 6.5k per room night but what we got was quite disappointing. The service was really bad. it started with a small car arriving to pick us up from thivim station for 4 passengers. The car driver was told that there are only 2 passengers. A big goof up. So travelled the 45 mins to the hotel in a cramped space. Then the rooms were not ready as we arrived but that was fine as the official check in time was 2 and we had arrived at 12.30. We got one room though after half an hour but had to carry our luggage to our room as we waiting for a long time for the bell boy to bring our luggage from the reception but when there were no signs of that happening even after a couple of reminder calls to the reception decided to do it ourselves. The pool is so small that with 10 people in it you would struggle for space. Definately not a pool for swimming, its just a large size bath tub i would say. Dont even get me started over the food. As we had a all meal plan we were served similar food all the 4 meals. The food wasnt great either. For deserts we had the same icecream all 4 meals plus a small other sweet added. There is no gaming room in the property, so if it rains in Goa and you cant go anywhere than all you do in this hotel is sit in your room and watch TV.
Definately not the kind of luxury you would expect right. Not a resort really. Its a glorified hotel with a casino.

Room Tip: None of the rooms have any view, so it really doesn't matter.
