“Our second visit to Coconut Grove”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 January 2012

Just like we did last year, we did spend 2 weeks in Goa in the Coconut Grove during our travel in India. of course we looked into other hotels in Goa as well but we liked the Coconut a lot last year so we decided to go there.
It was nice to come back. A warm welcome at the reception desk where the same professional and friendly staff were doing a great job. We got a very good room. This time with a king bed (last year twins) and in this room the airconditioner was located on a better spot than in the room we had last year where the airconditioner blew cold air over the bed all the time. This time it didn't which was good.
The room was clean and comfortable; a few forgotten spots (window in the bathroom for example) but overall housekeeping did a good job.
Bathroom towels were of better quality than last year so I guess they bought new ones.
Breakfast didn't change much from last year. Last year I wasn't that happy with breakfast and I have still the same opinion. Although the waiters are friendly they seem to hang around without much to do while tables are not set or in a mess. A lack of management there.
No flies on the sweets anymore, that has improved.
The big television screen in the restaurant below has been removed which is good but the restaurant still doesn't have a good athmosphere. It is a pitty that there are not enough tables outside. Same goes for the breakfast restaurant. Foreign tourists love to sit outside but it seems that the staff thinks everyone loves sitting inside.
There were very many Russian tourists in the hotel. Much more than last year. Some are really nice and do speak some english but many of them ignored us completley.
Usually we had a drink in the bar in the evening and several evenings of the week there is live entertaiment which we did enjoy. Especailly the Tuesdays (Frank) are really nice.
Location is wonderful. I love walking to the beach. On the sandy road you usually see goats, waterbuffaloos, birds etcetera and the beach itself is wonderful. Many times you can spot dolphins and you can always see all kind of birds.
We hope to visit Coconut Grove in the future again. We like it a lot.

WHATS GOOD: Located 350m from a fab beach with loads of shacks where a curry is £1.50 and a beer a quid. Rooms big clean, free aircon, sheets changed every day, towels for pool. mini bar.

WHATS OK: Pool looks a bit murky (never see anyone swimming in it) and its not as big as it looks from the hotel website). The waiting on staff are quite simply miserable, getting tea and coffee off them for the average breakfast is a chore. Food in hotel no better then the shacks but more expensive. Better hotel than A la Goa hotel 300m away

THE BAD: The bar is unmanned half the time so difficult to get a drink. Signs up saying its unsafe to go on the beach after 8pm. (B**LOCKS!) Its just to get you to eat in the hotel. At £80 per night its a bit pricey for what is a basic hotel with no facilities.

I stayed here fo 5 nights after travelling around Rajasthan for 3 weeks. It is close to the beach which is great. The food was excellent, drinks cheap. Lovely pool. Staff were fantastic.

Room Tip: Nut much around hotel except the beach.

I stayed at Coconut Grove Resort on a Business Trip. Location of Resort is excellent and has nice lawns. Rooms as nice and clean. Beach was not at all crowded in morning and just a short walk away from Resort. But the key issue of Resort is it's Restaurant. I shockingly found a cockroach in my breakfast plate; With that one can gauge cleanliness in Restaurant. The Resort Manager apologized to me after Check-Out. Breakfast options were also limited.

A pretty good place, if you just want to unwind and relax. The beach is just a stone's throw away and is very serene. One can easily spend hours just walking along the sea for 2-3 kms in either directions, or even roam in the Suru trees along the beach.

The rooms are nice, and 1st floor rooms have a balcony - which is a nice place to relax, watching the sun go down. Great service, all staff were very helpful and prompt.

Things to look out for:
- Small swimming pool
- Be wary of the sight-seeing package. It promises quite a few things, but you will fall short of time if you start at 3pm. You must start around 11am to visit all places properly. The car however is quite comfy (a Innova) and drivers as well as Mr Mark the manager are helpful.
- No restaurants close by. Unfortunately, you are solely dependent on the in-house restaurant, which is not consistent - even with the buffet course changed! On our second day, the a la carte menu was not available because they had some big group booking!

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms to not have balcony, but you can sit-out in the lawn enjoying the moonlight
