Resort was full of activities although through 5 days of my stay. There was live music every day, although quality of singing could have been better!
Only a small minus point was that we expected staff to guide us for places to visit in Goa which was not done in our case.
Hotel staff was good and courteous. We are very happy as a family to stay at whispering palms

Important: While on our way back from Candolim beach to resort at 8:00 PM, we couldnt find a single street light towards resort. Which was was very insecure. Request Management to put a light to guide the way back.

Dear Guests,

Warm greetings from Whispering Palms Beach Resort !

Thank you for choosing our resort and taking the time out to review the hotel on TripAdvisor!

We thank you for your positive review on the resort, the staff, the activities, the entertainment, and everything that makes Whispering Palms Beach Resort so good for our guests. Yes, the staff ought to have guided you for places to visit in Goa. We have made a note of this lapse, and I'm sorry it was inadvertently not done in your case. As for the street lights, there are a lot of power cuts in Goa and we will bring this matter of putting up street lights, with the local authorities. We take great pleasure and pride in serving and entertaining our guests!

Guests like you and your kind words of appreciation for us are a huge motivation and inspiration for my team.

We look forward to welcoming you back to Goa.

Warm Regards,

Jacob John

We thank you for your positive review on the resort, the rooms, and the facilities. We're sorry that the food was disappointing.

Whispering Palms is a very good place to stay. Enjoyed the Goa Beaches. It is a very good location to all the beaches. The service was also quite good from by the hotel people. Overall all it was a nice experience. Mr. Uttam Kumar was a very good guy. He served very well. It was nice meeting him.

Room Tip: Rooms on the south side are quieter.

Whispering Palms is an excellent hotel with fabulous staff.
Overall the food, service, cleanliness and everything was "tops" and to us seemed to be a 4 star hotel with 7 star staff.
Location good, close to beach, bars and restaurants and a taxi rank if you want to go further afield.
We stayed here in March 2014 and then returned again for 3 weeks Christmas 2014 and New year 2015 which was fabulous.
Prior to arriving in December I emailed Maya and asked for a suitable room for my mother who is very unstable walking.
I told her the rooms we had in March would be ideal and a room overlooking the pool for my mother. Maya was brilliant and made sure we had exactly what we requested.
Nothing is too much trouble for any one of the staff; they are very professional, courteous and helpful.
We have stayed at the hotel twice and will definitely be returning again soon .The rooms are spacious, modern and spotlessly clean with everything you could possibly need.
The food is excellent , with loads of choice and if there is something you want the chef will prepare it especially for you.
Sunita was always around making sure my mother was ok and that we were all ok.
If my mother stayed in her room or on the balcony when we went we went out everyone looked after her - especially Prajay - she thought they were great.
Prajay(Joe 90), Yogesh, Rohit, George, Zaved, Ritesh, Aran, rajvir, Varun, Mehfooz, Lipton, Rahul, Augustin, Divxansh, Heduig, Gomesh, Jeetu and Jettu - all great.
Everyone on reception were great, anything you needed was sorted .
I’ve probably left out people but every single person at Whispering Palms was absolutely fabulous.
There is a variety of great entertainment.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at whispering Palms and all these people made that happen and we are looking forward to spending another few weeks with them soon.

Great spread of international cuisine by Chef Vincent and Hedwig,
