“A Visit of a Lifetime...”
Reviewed 7 June 2012

An amazing experience with FERN. The hospitality, the food, the ambiance and the people are wonderful. Walking distance from Palolem beach, a very well located place. The swimming pool is excellent and relaxes you from morning to eve. The aqua bar adds to the relaxation. Its also located 1km from the only available ATM near by. Overall a great experience. At affordable cost, the best HOTEL in PALOLEM. Recommended to all. It also gives your personal space in the calm environment with nature around you all the time.

Room Tip: For a budget room, ask the reception. Best people to help u around and with OFF season discounts ava...

We had been to The Fern gardenia resort just a couple of days back and let me tell you it was a very refreshing experience.The rooms are well maintained,toilets are clean,decor is good,restaurant is well stocked and the swimming pool is nice and clean.The resort operates on "Go Green" theme and it lives upto it.Nice trees all over the property where you could just sit and relax.

Seems that they forget about maintenance when is off season. The place is indeed very good but the facilities,specially the swimming pool, seem to be abandoned. Good place overall but like everything in India, if they dont take care, after 5 years will be below average and old looking.

we enjoyed our stay, ,comfi beds, quite at night,green and good working AC in the room.Breakfast was ok, nothing special.the cleaning ladies did a good job, fresh linen fresh towels, cleaned the floor daily. The male stuff ( as usual in india) where more the lazy type,who called the ladies to clean things even just in front of their nose. poolbar would be nice, but again, the boys are too lazy to take care of it or cleaning it even once. a pity because the place is beautiful.some male staff is also starring at the customers in bikini, which is not ok at all. here some training should be invested.all in all a good stay !! indian families on weekends can be very noisy in the pool !

We loved our stay here. The cabins amongst all the greenery and surrounding the pool are just gorgeous. On arrival we were presented with a cold flannel and orange juice and we knew it would be a good stay! The cabins are lovely with great shower and cleaned everyday. The pool was also really clean. It's great that you get free drop off and pickup service to Palolem beach. The breakfasts are pretty good. The staff are lovely and really helpful but I think just need a bit more experience in providing seamless service - there were just a couple of little misunderstandings and it would have been great if the poolside bar had been staffed! I'm sure this will come with time though as I think this is quite a new resort.
