This was our second trip to the Heritage after going in January 2010. Having never returned to a hotel for a second visit we were a little apprehensive in case it didn't live up to the standards of last year. After landing in Goa and making our way to the minibus our worries disappeared as we were recognised straight away by Gaynor the Thomson rep, and were on the same bus as people we met last year. On arrival at the hotel we were met by Sofia and welcomed back, it was like going and visiting relatives. There were a lot of the same people staying at the hotel that were there the same time last year, so you always had someone to sit and have a drink with!
Rooms have been updated since last year and it is a definite improvement with the safe now being in your room. Drinks being brought round the pool is also an added bonus, even tea and coffee. Snacks have also improved, but would someone please fix the door at the swim up bar, the constant banging in the afternoon drives you mad. I did request something to be done while we were there, but it only lasted a day and then was back to the bang.
Our room was maintained by Shakker, who never failed to put a smile on my face with his towel art, and even did a welcome back poster when we did an overnight trip, nice touch!
I would also like to pass on my thanks to Blossy and James for rescuing my husband when he forgot to book the Mango restaurant for our anniversary and they managed to accommodate us at very short notice, thank you very much.
The hotel is off the beaten track, but that is part of it's beauty. You can walk down the lane toward the village and watch the pigs and piglets in the forest, or walk the other way and you are on the beach which goes for miles. If you are looking for lots of beach shacks with plenty going on then this is not the place for you. If you want tranquility with a very slow pace of like then this is the place to be.
With so many returning guests to this hotel I think that is the best advertisement, as so many people cannot be wrong. Go and enjoy as we did and you will have some of your best memories ever.
