“Below Average Hotel”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 January 2012

A couple of friends and I decided to stay here in this hotel since this was close to Baga Beach. Pretty pricey but we decided to go for it anyway since it seemed clean and well kept. Our expereince was bad. Is it wrong to expect clean sheets without spots and bathrooms with running hot water ? The towels and sheets had spots on them, there was no running water in one of the bathrooms which didnt get fixed even on complaining. The other bathroom had hot water, though, it was extremely difficult to get the shower to work properly. On the first day after checkin, we spent the whole day outside, only to come back late evening to find that the rooms had not been made up at all. The buffet breakfast had uninteresting fare. Not much variety and extremely poor service. The pool is clean. The only thing going for this place is the proximity to Baga Beach.

We stayed at The BAGA MARINA Hotel for 3N4D, and overall it was a good experience...
Some Pros and Cons:-

Pros:-
The rooms are nice and cozy, and very clean
most of the rooms have a pool facing balcony
Very polite and co-operative staff
hardly 10 minute walk from the baga beach

Cons:-
Not enough lighting in the rooms
Too many ants in the room, on tables, bathroom, everywhere cant keep any food items anywhere...
Breakfast is horrible (hardly 3-4 options)
Service is very laid back

The restaurant serves very very good north indian food, and the quantities are very good!

Room Tip: Choose the pool facing rooms only.

We booked this hotel during x-mas 2011.

In overall, I would not go back. The hotel is ok but quite overpriced for what is actually offered. It feels like a 2-3 star hotel.

The location is great, though.

The rooms: They are a bit weird - specially with the glass wall separating the shower from the bedroom. There were a lot of corners cut during the furnishing and decoration of the room. Things don't quite match, or they are not functional. The worst was a pout-pouri full of mould in the bathroom. Not good!

The staff: For the first few days, the waiting staff are lovely. However, after a while, their excessive attentiveness got on my nerves. During dinner, every single one of the waiters would at some stage come in and have a chat with us. It was just a bit too much, specially for a couple (looking forward some time together).

The hotel's kitchen is just ok. We had a few meals there. Nothing really wowed us. You can get MUCH better food for MUCH less somewhere else.

X-mas gala: don't bother. Food was ordinary at the best. Some of the thing were quite bad, actually. The turkey was aweful. The entertainment was ok only. We had planned to stay for the whole night in the gala but left shortly after dessert, completely disappointed.

The ambience is good and the hotel bounds actually look quite alright.

Reception: unhelpful most of the times, they behave like they are running a hostel and most of our requests ( maps, internet, itemised bill) were met like we were asking too much of them and they were doing us a favour. Check in and Check out took quite a while as well.

Beware: if renting a car, make sure you do NOT use the people hanging out just outside the hotel. They are scamers and will exercise undue pressure and threat of violence to rip you off after you have already paid for the car hire. We hired a car for 2 days and specifically agreed that we would return the car exactly 48 hours later. Next day, the owner calls demaning the car to be returned straight away claiming that 2 days actually means two periods of 8 hours and as such, our 2 days hire was actually a 16 hours hire!!!! Rubbish. The hotel's staff was unwilling and unprepared to help or provide advice even though they were the ones that recommended those guys in the first place. To the contary, the dodgy receptionist strongly suggested that we would give the car owner more money to keep the car for longer!!! It is clear scheme to rip tourists/guests off.

We will not come back!

Room Tip: stay somewhere else!

As usual booked my stay after refering to trip advisor.. And till date this formula has never let me down....
The hotel was good very friendly and helpful staff very neat rooms which get cleaned everyday the location is good walkable distance to baga beach and all the hangouts( Titos , Mambos and Brittos)
The bathrooms were clean and well maintained .

Pros: nice big rooms ( i suggest take the pool view) , well maintained friendly staff and attentive reception. Centrally located very close to the major hangouts of goa.

Cons: A little expensive for Indian hotels i felt but maybe it was because i went during the peak season(Dec 21 onwards) . The bed was ok , I personally find it a little hard to sleep on the spring mattress but otherwise it was nice...The breakfast was ok but there could have been a little more items on the spread.

Overall i say its a good one to stay in , U wont regret it...

Room Tip: Try taking the pool view rooms it keeps u busy , and most of the events of the hotel happen around t...

Our recent stay at the Baga Marina was a very happy one. The hotel itself was clean, comfortable and great service. Pool area and poolside bar were all excellent and hotel services such as room service was very reasonable. We managed to to clear out our mini bar to the grand total of £14! Its a 5 min walk to the imfamous Ti-To's lane leading to the beach with beach bars a plenty and some good eating places. We highly recommend Baptist.
The rooms were all air conditioned with mosquito plugs supplied to keep the little critters away. Towels and bedding were regularly changed, yet privacy was equally respected with do not disturb signs.
Wi-Fi was available from reception for £1.50 hour or a whole day for £5. High speed connection.
The only slight grumble was the breakfast, the omlettes were delicious but after day ten we were a little over them! The mix of selection was a little bizarre, from swiss roll, boiled eggs, chips, curry and other indian cuisine, the omlette was best!
Few more reccomendations are Palolem Beach, we paid roughly £35 for a return taxi, about 2 hours journey and got a beach hut for £15 night. Two nights wasn't enough. Also Morjim Beach is very lovely but fastly becoming "Little Moscow" with the invasion of Russian tourists!

Room Tip: We had 1308, which was lovely.
