“Not our cup of tea!”
Reviewed 22 April 2007

Mobor Beach Resort Hotel is a large white, soulless hotel made up of timeshare apartments and rooms for the charter holiday trade. Cavelossim is very much two villages – the older is by the Catholic Church, school (the post office is part of it) and bank. The second also referred to as Mobor, is close to the sea, a one street village made up of an ever increasing developments eating into the vegetation along the coast and destroying any natural beauty replacing it with hotels & time share complexes and shops & restaurants.

The hotel opened in 2000 and was built very much to cater for the charter holiday trade. At the rear of the hotel, a large strip of land has been cleared all the way to the beach and building has started on yet more timeshare villas. Every thing was covered in red dust. Another ugly scare!

On the beach is an adequate beach shack ‘GGs’, serving satisfactory food and cool drinks. There are sun beds for the use of hotel guests. While we were there the beach was covered in rubbish and a lot of oil was washed up. Staff at the beach shack were very friendly and helpful.

There is a small swimming pool (beware of the ‘step’ separating the deep end from the shallow) and an awful ‘English pub’ – full of football shirts and other such memorabilia, smelling strongly of the owners dogs. If you’re into that sort of thing there is nightly entertainment consisting of Bingo, Karaoke and Quizzes – which we avoided like the plague. The restaurant – somewhat bizarrely is based on a Mexican theme, and provides ‘traditional English Sunday roasts’, and full cooked breakfasts.

On arrival we were given a standard Holiday company room, which was totally uninspiring, lacking any real comforts and air-conditioning, just a fan and en-suite. We upgraded to a two room suite consisting of a lounge and bedroom with two toilets, shower, air-conditioning, fans, fridge, TV, settee, kitchenette and large bed, which was much better, and made the stay bearable. Towels and bed linen were changed daily as long as you handed in your key. The hotel is spotlessly clean.

Views one side looked out on to scrubland covered with litter – where rubbish was burnt every evening, and on the other side a more traditional view of Goan life, a family living a more basic existence , along with their pigs and hens. This is a developing country!

Staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The shops opposite the hotel were very useful, especially the chemist which is popular with holiday makers in the area. Taxis are available outside the main entrance.

Despite all my negative comments we enjoyed a super time in Goa. I guess this hotel was just not my cup of tea, and as such I would find it hard to recommend. The look upon the locals face when you tell them were you are staying says it all!

Reviewed 26 February 2007

we have just returned from the mobor beach resort, and loved every minute of it. we contacted the hotel by phone to book after having no joy with e-mails and paid 2500 rs per night for bb in a double room with a/c, fan, balcony, fridge,satellite tv and safety deposit boxes in reception.
The hotel has a pool but we never used it once as we spent everyday on the beach which is accessible by a private road, which at the minute is the road being used by the workmen who are building the villas at the back of the hotel. Don't let that put u off though there is no noise or any problems whatsoever. It takes about 5-6 mins to walk to the beach this way and it takes you right into GG's beach shack where you'll find Rose, Dominique, Sudam and Andy who will make you very welcome
The hotel is cleaned on a daily basis and we could find no fault with the cleanliness, the only difficulty we experienced was not having clean towels the one time we returned early from the beach, the laundered ones weren't being delivered until 18.00hrs, but this is Goa and its all so laid back.
The breakfast included is basic, toast, tea or coffee, fruit juice and butter & jam. We wished we took our own jam as the choice is limited to mixed fruit jam or marmelade, but if you wanted a cooked breakfast you could have eggs cooked in whatever style you requested by Jacqui the english cook. But beware even though breakfast is served 8am - 10am arrive after 9.30 and you will see her eyes roll!
In the basement is the english pub run by Tim and Sue, a friendly couple from ashbourne derbyshire who make you very welcome.
Wednesday night is beach party night at all the shacks, fromthe Mobor Beach you can get a free taxi down the private road for the party at GG's. For 350rs its a all you can eat buffett. We enjoyed baked potatoes, steak,fish and various Goan dishes, tak about stuffed it was delicious.
Thursday night is Karaoke at the hotel, we went to 2 of these and ebjoyed both, what a laugh, it was well after 1am when we went to bed, although the noise didn't disturb us
All in all a clean be it basic hotel in a good location and one that we will definatley return to
