This review is for the discerning traveller who knows & expects the level of luxury, exclusivity, service, efficiency & experience of 5* hotels. To others some points might seem like nitpicking but at 5 * levels it is not 1. Check in & check out is a long process, you need to allocate time for this in your plans. The front desk is so inefficient & inept that if it is not so annoying it would be hilarious the way they make the check in process look like a rocket science project 2. Room layout has been ditto copied from hongkong disneyland resort but the similarity ends there, even mentioning both hotels together in the same sentence is an insult to disneyland resort. Absolutely pathetic everything else. Building is not spanky or shining & needs refurbishing 3. AC adjustment panel in the rooms is bogus, whatever temp. You set, room temp will remain 24C & above. This is in all rooms 4. Shower cubicle design fault has bathroom floor flooded when one has a shower & then others can't enter the bathroom because of the wet, slippery floor. This too in all type of rooms 5. No words to describe the complimentary breakfast, there is a large spread but taste is so awful you just have to fill up your stomach by looking at the spread, can't eat it 6. Not enough cutlery & I saw the server wiping of a used fork & giving it to another client. I waited for 10mts for my fork & after seeing it, just used my hands 7. The table size is ridiculously small but it is used as 4 seater with just enough space for 4 plates 8. Tried ala chart for dinner & it was okay with some hits & misses (for the stupidly high prices) but it shows they can prepare palatable meals but don't do it for breakfast since it is complimentary. They seem to deliberately tone down the breakfast 9. If you have your own car, be prepared for baked & piping hot car because they don't have credited car park & the little bit of shade is provided by coconut trees so you can't park under them for fear of coconut falling on the wind shield. The landscape designer should be given an award for his thoughtfulness 10. No soft close EWC, close it with care or be ready for the bang 11. Flat panel has cable channels, cable signal is not good, so TV is just for show, can't watch for 10mins continuously 12. Bathroom window has no blinds, so in the night if one uses the bathroom others will be disturbed by the light through the window panes 13. Most important, they will block the entire amount of your room rent for the total no. Of days of your stay + additional 25% from your credit card upon allocating the room 14. Don't expect peace & exclusivity, bus loads of people come under corporate discount & the lobby & restaurant resemble fish market So if you are not satisfied with your stay & vacate early you will not be refunded the remaining amount Now let me share my encounters in detail Ms. Meenu from front desk: turned us away since they were sold out (at 10pm in the night, with wife & kids, after a long tiring journey from Hassan to Mangalore to Goa) & on top of that recommended that we stay at the hotel next door which was supposed to be good. What, why would she recommend another hotel? Then we again left the campus, went next door, didn't like them, so rang up Lalit again to see if we can get the suite, this time the duty manager picked up the phone & when asked for rooms he told all types of rooms were available for however many days we need & he didn't know why his staff would say rooms were not available. Then we again came back & proceeded to check in Mr. Pankaj from the billing: after the said long journey & tamasha of room availability, just sat down bone tired at the reception sofa to take a sip from the welcome drink, he doesn't wait for me to finish the drink, right before the 2nd sip, comes and insists that I come with him to take care of the payment. Wow what hospitality AC technician: hot & humid outside, AC not cooling, technician unable to fix the issue & says, "you switch on the fan sir". Great Bathroom flooding: maintenance guys unable to fix it. So problem persists Rakshit, Asst. Duty manager: After complaining about bathroom & AC, he dragged the issue till 8pm & then offered to give us another room for the night. Whatever complaint you have he has the standard answer, ' we understand your situation, sorry for the inconvenience' but no speedy redress Sudhir Jena: GM: when we were fed up with their attitude & decided to checkout though it was after 8pm, this guy refused to refund the remaining blocked amount & on top of that asked us to go to the next 'just to sleep' & then come back to the same room in the morning. Hilarious guy! Every hotel should have GM like him to prosper These are some of the gems of hospitality I encountered & am sure many genuine clients would have come across. Lots of fake reviews floating around in other forums.
I visited this hotel in the month of August 2016 with family. Destination is very good. Location of the hotel was inside the city and was easy to locate, was very good. Appearance of the hotel was very good from interior and exterior. Check in check out was on time. Staff were cooperative and friendly. Room and toilet was neat and clean. All amenities were available with working condition. WiFi facility available in the hotel. Hot and cold water facility available in the hotel. Food was excellent in quality and quantity, variety dishes available in the hotel. Service was excellent and was on time. Activities were held in this hotel and were excellent. Swimming pool facility available in the hotel.
Good hotel we stayed for 4 days. The hotel's location is very quiet and peaceful place. A long way from the hustle and urban communities. It located near the most secluded beach in South Goa hotel area is huge and insanely beautiful, huge green areas, the golf course is good, playground for children. It highlights small pool and bridges, giving the hotel an extraordinary appeal and style. The hotel's area is bit long way from the airplane terminal, about hour away. Rooms at the hotel rooms are huge. The room has everything like shoes, robes, toothpaste etc. Clean zone. Bright and clean. Substantial bedding, television. The bathroom has both Bath and shower. We had a room overlooking the sea. The rooms are cleaned every day, bed sheets changed every day too. Stunning views across the golf course also you can see the sea. Three pools, including children. Service is excellent, polite and friendly. Food is good and delicious, prices are higher though. Very large beautiful surroundings, the beach is gorgeous, warm sea and just 5 minutes away from the hotel.
It was a official trip. Location was convenient and good, it is situated 1. 30 hours from the bus stand. Inside and outside appearance was good. It is located near beach, not faced any problem to reach the hotel. Staff members behaviour was friendly and co-operative. Rooms were clean, neat and maintained. Amenities like AC, TV and geyser were available and were in working condition. Food quality and taste was good, both varieties like veg and non-veg were available in the hotel. Breakfast was complimentary. Rate charged was reasonable. Swimming pool, indoor and outdoor games were not available in the hotel. No delay in check-in and check-out. Satisfied with the services and hotel. No suggestion to improve the hotel.
The first trip to Goa was a memorable one because of the resort experience. Rooms are very big and bright. Its a huge property and ideal for every age group people. Very good swimming pool, good coffee shop & restaurant facilities. Staff are warm and nice. We were there for a friends wedding 2 year back. Only 2 things were negative, its very far from the city. So even if you need to step out for a while that won't be possible as the main city is about 1 hr 30 minutes away and secondly, the room locations are itself is very confusing and are very widely placed. Rest its really good
