“just ok.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2010

This hotel is about 5 mins walk from the calangute beach, very basic rooms, can't expect much for the price they offer.
there is a swimming pool, staff is friendly but not trained, rooms can be better. there is no restaurant here, though there was breakfast..

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 December 2009

Goa is crazily crowded during Christmas time, and we'd scouted for hotels atleast 3 months in advance.
Looking at Anup's website, we were quite impressed, and decided to book. We drove down to Goa, so needed a place for the car, which Anup has a decent enough parking lot.
The rooms are ok...they've really low ceilings though, and tall folks will feel like they're in Gulliver's travels :)
The first few days we were in a room where there was no water...which was pretty bad. But, the help around the hotel is really good, and they were quick in switching us over to another room, where we had no problems.
The rooms are just about alright, working ACs, a little bit of noise from the neighboring bars (but, this is Goa, right?).
They have no food, except for breakfast, and coffee and sandwiches, which can be ordered to the room. A decent li'l pool in the courtyard seems like a hit with the kids.
The place is not fantastic, but, for the money and proximity to the beach, its good enough.

  • Liked — Proximity to everything in Calangute :)
  • Disliked — Low ceilings, ok rooms.
