An excellent hotel in the heart of Calangute. My review has to be considered within the context of this being a 2*+ hotel and the resultant cost. Other reviewers have commented upon the desirability of obtaining a room at the rear of the hotel overlooking the pool - I would concur with this as out front is bedlam and an extremely noisy road. The room we has was fine (102 on the first floor). The sheets and towels are changed daily and the room cleaned. It is not spotless but I have certainly had a lot worse in places like Greece. The air con worked well and there was a ceiling fan also. The shower was excellent with a constant supply of hot water. The pool is maintained in a very clean condition. Breakfast is a simple affair but perfectly OK although some decent orange juice (not tinned, sweet stuff) would have been a nice addition. All staff were pleasant and tried hard to please. The main restauarnt was only opening during our second week and to be honest did not look up to much when compared with some of the superb dining experiences to be had locally. The Airtours catalogue states that the hotel is 300 metres from the main beach - it isn't. It is more like 800 metres but still very walkable. Local restaurants I would recommend are Fiesta (Tito's Road, Baga) - dont be put off by the alley way leading to it as this is a first rate restaurant, Jamies (Baga Beach Road but many taxi drivers struggle to find it) and The Oriental (now relocated to Holiday Street almost into Candolim. Our favourite beach shack was The Only Place, a ten minute walk from the Lambana and half way between Calagute and Baga beaches - don't be put off by the appearance as Romeo and the boys work hard to make you welcome and are capable of cooking up great, fresh and safe food in impossible conditions. All in all a great holiday and I would recommend the Lambana to anyone going to North Goa.
