We a family group of 8 adults and a 6 months infant child had a 4 nights stay at this most beautiful resort situated right on the shore of the Odxel Beach in the (North) Goa's posh and prime locality of Dona Paula. Really it was an awesome experience at the resort for all of us as everyone enjoyed our stay over there. The crystal clear water of the beach invited us for a frequent visit to its shore on the all the 4 days especially to view the beautiful sunrise and also the sunset scenery. The nice view of the beach at the balcony behind and the pool at front of all our 4 rooms gave us a very refreshing moments on all the days of our stay. We could even collect a variety of sea shells too from that crystal clear beach. We never had such experience of collecting so many varieties of shells. In fact, a small boy was explaining in Hindi that there was a treasure of shells in that beach. The double rooms with wooden built premises, good AC facility, nice king size bed, a mini fridge and coffee maker were really awesome. The small but compact bath glass cabin with 24 hours of running hot water and nice hand and regular showers was an added attraction. The bathroom was also very hygienic with toiletries provided almost every day and with the room being cleaned every day promptly. The front desk/reception staff were so cooperative and saw that our stay was made so comfortable in all respects. Especially, we have to thank Ms. Jayanthi who evinced all interest to her maximum in ensuring the prompt and timely services provided from time to time. The efforts of Mr. Ashish from the front desk also were really appreciable and needs a special mention. It was really awesome to know their involvement in the up keeping of the resort in spite of their joining the organisation quite recently. Their services really gave us a feeling that they might be working with the resort for a longer period but was not true. The travel arrangements including the airport pick up and drop were arranged well before the scheduled times without making us to wait at all. The scenery around the resort inside was beautiful and quite awesome with some additional activities made available for the tourists like archery, shooting, etc. May be that they can add a gym too for those tourists who wish to stay a longer period for rest and recuperation. The crystal clear and clean water in the well maintained swimming pool is also an added attraction, swimming in which was an awesome and enjoyable experience for most of us. The only drawback was the time taken by the restaurant in providing the food ordered which is perhaps quite understandable as they mainly cater to the needs of the tourists who stay there only and not it is open for all walk-in people. The food provided were quite tasty and the services were really awesome right from the chief chef to the serving officials. They were all very polite and prompt. Though they provide free wifi, it gives trouble sometimes to some rooms probably due to some technical issues. But we could enjoy the wifi facility mostly. They provide different user id and passwords for each room. Overall, the stay was really awesome and wonderful for every one of us and probably for our nice cooperative infant child too. He must have also enjoyed the stay. Our hearty thanks to each and every staff member at the resort and kudos to the JUST group for having given us a 'treat' at Goa through the services of Bay15. Keep it up! We recommend to everyone who visit Goa to try this Resort with a very limited number of just 15 rooms and feel very much homely and enjoy their great personal hospitality. We ourselves feel that we will have to make another trip to enjoy the resort hospitality and peaceful stay. Room Tip: Sea view rooms are very nice, especially from 104 to 109. More » « Hide

Me along with my wife and son who came from US planned to stay in this beautiful small 'homely' resort for 2 nights on viewing its great reviews in the popular travel websites. We all the three felt like it was really a boon to stay here with the very personal attention given by its owner Mr A K Najmal in all aspects- right from the accommodation arrangements to dining including our travel requirements at fairly reasonable rates for sightseeing, pick up and drops etc. He personally supervises every requirement of the tourists who stay in the resort so as to ensure their full satisfaction. The staff who are in the resort are also well behaved, very helpful and courteous. The food prepared by their chief Mr Pushparaj were simply great and mouth watering. The 'Prime Suite' room which we three stayed was really a cosy one with a loft room with double bed cot was really a special attraction with wooden staircase. Our son enjoyed his staying on that loft room. Especially our son really enjoyed his stay more than us in peacefully attending his maths work leisurely and in a very calm atmosphere like our home. Perhaps the location of the resort is right down on a very steep lane which will definitely boost up our energy in keeping our health very much fit. The surroundings with berry fruit trees, colourful flower plants and also beautiful birds do make the resort more eco-friendly. The piano of 150 years old is a special antique and the beds in the rooms are reportedly made with feathers and are so soft. Overall our short stay at the Mount Pleasant was so sweet and memorable and it was really a 'home away home' experience for us. We strongly recommend for the tourists who visit Kodaikanal to definitely try for a stay in this small but beautiful resort. Stayed September 2015. More » « Hide

We five male members of our family stayed overnight in this hotel on our way back from Sabarimalai darshan. We preferred this hotel as it was on our way while coming from Sabarimalai though far off (about 34 km) from Kochi airport. The front reception counter staff were found very hospitable, helpful and courteous. In general the vegetarian part of food was not having varieties even in buffet breakfast or dinner. The rooms were well maintained and hygienic. Though the toiletries were provided, the dental and shaving kits are reportedly provided on demand only and not kept ready in the rooms. The rooms facing the back waters may be preferable for those who love nature. The hotel is situated a little inside of a highway road. Stayed September 2015, travelled with family members in a group.

But via Tirupathi and to make a short halt there from early morning to noon. On a review of reasonably cheaper hotels at Tirupathi browsing through various travel sites, I could narrow down to Sandeep Residency which had some good rating and booked through MakeMyTrip. Com. The hotel room(non AC) in their AC Deluxe premises was small but compact with clean small size double bed with (geyser)hot water on demand facility. The wash basin sink fixed in the room outside the bathroom was not appearing so clean though the compact room was clean. I checked in at about 6am and checked out by 10. 30am. The rooms facing the main road can be opted. Sandeep Residency can be opted just for a day or an overnight stay if one goes singly and not to be suggested for families. No restaurants are available almost in that entire lane and we have to come to the main road for food or snacks which is a drawback. More » « Hide

Though the property is lengthy in appearance and the rooms in the ground and first floors are spread over through the length ( not breadth) to a long distance, we may ignore it for the main reason that it has a beautiful beach behind with all required facilities like sun umbrellas and sunbath chairs provided on the shore. We can have a nice long walk on the seashore, enjoy standing on the sea water and also see the beautiful sun rise. The well-maintained swimming pool is an added attraction as also the property keeping a few antique wooden cart, etc in their lobby. Wifi is available only in the lobby. The front office executive Mr Siran personally took all the interest in ensuring all comforts. The vegetarian food availability needs improvement. The balcony locks and other door locking systems were not up to the mark and gave our feedback to do the needful in correcting them. Overall, the resort is a nice property for all the nature and beach living tourists. The six rooms (two each in ground, first and added second floor) are preferable for those who wish to face the sea fully to enjoy the direct sea breeze, sea view and nature's beauty with coconut trees, sun rise view etc. More » « Hide
