Nice peaceful Hotel with very cooperative staff

Posted 17 Nov, 2015

This hotel is one of the good hotels in Goa. It's peaceful and the surrounding also are very peaceful as it is situated in South Goa far from the crowded place. The hotel has all the modern amenities, specially their Rooms (Suites) are very good and fully equipped with modern facilities like tea/coffee maker, mini refrigerator, king size cozy beds and modern toilet/bathroom The hotel staff is very cooperative and helpful. Specially their Manager- Mr. Naresh. They help you in their best capacity. The food has been excellent and it's decently priced. The only thing is as it is little far you ought to have a vehicle, best thing is if you can hire two-wheelers it will give you freedom to move and it will be economical. Hiring Cabs from the Hotel can be little costly affair.

Good resort

Posted 19 Sep, 2014

This is one of the best resorts of South Goa. Though the location is quite awkward but approachable as most of taxi operators know it. No Public transport available. 10 minutes walk to Varca beach, very peaceful and free from crowds. Food is decent but costly though a good restaurant just outside entrance is available and a bit cheaper. Support staff was good but reception is a bit slow. Good Swimming pool was there. Bike for hire was also available nearby.

Value for money; friendly staff

Posted 30 Dec, 2014

Hotel was good. I reached the hotel easily. Hotel was situated out of the Goa city. It was a relaxation trip with my family in the month of August 2014. I stayed there three days. Behaviour of the staff was very friendly. They had given quick responses to all our requests. Interior and exterior look of the hotel was excellent. There was no delay in check-in and check-out facility. Nothing was available in activities. Hotel did not organize any sightseeing trip. Hotel was value for money. I can recommend this hotel to other travellers.
