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.
