Reviewed 22 January 2011

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.

Great deal through Olympic Holiday for this hotel for 3 weeks in April, got there and it was a disaster, the rooms were dirty, mouldy, bed sheets and towels were dirty, matresses stained, filing cabinet for a wardrobe. The only good thing about it were the staff were friendly. I moved rooms three times in total and the rooms were just getting worse, after two days stay at this hotel, I packed my bags and left at 10pm because couldn't take it any longer. Please see a few of the pictures I took.

We were shown this hotel by a broker whilst we were standing and figuring out what to do on the Calangute beach road. Since it was off season, the rates were decent and we booked 2 rooms for 3-4 days. The rooms we stayed on the ground floor were decent with a hall and a large bedroom, nothing luxurious, but well kept beds and washrooms, AC and TV in working order. They had a fridge in the room, but was empty and we never bothered to use it. The plus point of the hotel is the swimming pool, which really relaxes you after a long day out. The location of the hotel is great, right next to the Calangute Beach, a few minutes away from the Calangute market, few minutes away from the Baga Beach. For breakfast and food in general try out the Infantaria Restaurant near the hotel...it has amazing Beef Steak Sandwiches and Croquettes. The area has a number of good and cheap hotels as well.

The resort was undergoing some renovation for the peak season which resulted in some mud at places and with rains lashing down, it was a little bad. We did not have any problems with the staff with whatever little chance we had. Only dislike was the morning tea which was horrible.

You will get bikes and cars on hire nearby. Bargaining is the key if you want good rates. Overall a good place and a good stay even though it was during the rainy season, we enjoyed our trip since the rain was kind enough to stay away whenever we decided to go out.

This was the third time I had stayed at this hotel, mainly for the location, because it is at the top end of baga road and a short walk away from the main shoping area of Calangute. I did not expect any improvements to be made to the hotel as there were none the previous year but I was surprised as the hotel is under new owners and management and they have made a good start to a long term plan to update the hotel. The staff were polite and friendly, nothing was too much trouble and all the staff from the room boy, bar staff up to the owner went out of their way to make our stay as comfortable as possible. The accommodaion was still basic this year e.g. no television, kettle or hair dryer but the rooms were clean with fresh sheets and towels provided every day. Look forward to seeing what improvements have been made this year including the new bar.

having read previous reviews, I was very excited as everyone had the same views about this hotel. Unfortunately the hotel has new owners and things were very different from the reviews. our room boy Hk was wonderful, our room was cleaned daily, at breakfast you waited ages for any kind of service. hopefully in the future the owner will make a few changes for the better. all in all our holiday was fantastic as usual.
