i always try to give my honest opinion when i stay in a hotel, so here goes...
because we've been to Goa 7 times now, we know the sort of standards to expect.
on 1st impressions from the front, not very good! but, inside away from the road i was pleasantly surprised.
remember this is 2star Goa, so the facilities are basic.
saying that, there is a bar/restaurant which is reasonably priced and has karaoke on monday and a duo on friday, dont know about any other night.
there are 2 blocks of 3 storeys and 1 block of 2 storey. we had a1st floor poolview in the front block. my son had a room next 2 us, but facing the road. we was ok, but my sons room was very noisey and been baga rd, this went on very late. But he plugged his ipod in and drown the noise out...
our rooms were basic but clean and had wardrobes with plenty of hangers, bedside cabinets and a dresser with mirror and drawers.
when you hand your key in, you are asked if you want it cleaning. you can have it cleaned every day if you want and you only have to ask for clean sheets and towels or extra toilet rolls, no probs. my son had a few ants in his room and been a 1st time teenager in goa, panicked a bit, but i saw reception and a boy was sent up straight away to spray the area and swept it up.
the towels and sheets were not perfect, but they were always clean and i didnt notice any stained mattresses when i made the bed myself.
the bathroom was your usual wetroom type. again, not perfect but it was clean and didnt have mouldy walls or anything. the shower was always hot, but there was only 1 tap in the sink which was always cold.
the pool area only has about 10 sunbeds which have seen better days, but not many stayed around the pool anyway, so you could always get one. the area was kept clean and tidy and the boys cleaned the pool in the morning.
there was a mix of nationalities staying there, russian, danish, indian, english.
the staff were all pleasant and helpful especially Rohan who is constantly smiling!
one thing i wont advise doing is using the laundry service. i have never had a problem in other hotels, but this one i did. it took 3 days and came back in 2 lots and then there was still 4 items missing that we never got back. luckily these were only cheap vests, but they could have been something else. but the manager didn't charge me for any of it and did try to get them back.
t.v. can be hired at 100rps per day and fridges the same, but we was on a package and the fridge was included. but i would always ask at the beginning of the holiday rather than have an unexpected bill at the end.
there is a taxi rank outside and we had a regular driver called Guru, he has a red van is very good.
if this hotel was in candolim, i would stay here again, but unfortunately calangute and especially baga road is getting too busy and noisey for us now.
like i said, you get what you pay for and if it's your 1st time in Goa, you may expect more. but to me its only somewhere to sleep and shower, so as long as its clean, that's the main thing.
