The hotel needs definitely updating as it looks rather tired. It has a lovely pool but the beach is about 5 min walk away and no beach hut to buy a cold drink or facilities there. The hotel has no lift and if your rooms are on the upper of 3 floors it’s a bit of a drag. Rooms are large but it’s sort of where you don’t want to stay a lot of the time. No restaurants around and you have to stay within the hotel compound unless you go to the nearest little town. Food was ok, most of the staff where...

Good Property - No Elevators..Why?!?

by nawani99 on 16 Jan 2019 (Family Traveller)

Located in a quiet locale of Panjim and 3 mins walk from Vainguinim beach, this resort is reasonably good. We had booked a 2 bedroom penthouse suite, which was located on the 3rd floor of a building that had no elevators!! The health-conscious would frown upon me for complaining but my kids dreaded climbing those flights of stairs after a long tiring day at the beach. The in-room dining menu was limited for options, but the quality of the food was good. Our penthouse was very cosy and well maint...

Very good budget stay

by Abhijit W on 30 Dec 2018 (Family Traveller)

The property consists of multiple 3 floor buildings with a good pool and garden. The deluxe rooms are above average in size but feel old. Spent 3 nights here and found the room, bed sheets and bathroom were maintained clean throughout. Food in the in-house restaurant was OK. Buffet spread can be improved. Live performance was ON by local artists in the restaurant on one of the nights. Car parking is not available inside the hotel premises but on the road outside - the security guards do keep a ...

Terrible junkyard

by ekorhonen on 13 Dec 2018 (Couple Traveller)

We took a room for 3 weeks there without cancellation possibility, but the place is really bad, so that we went away to another hotel , even knowing that we will lose money. Also very ancient and half broken furniture. I have been to India for more thjam 20 times...but I saw such a hotel for the first time. In reality this hotel is 1.5 stars even for Indian classification. The place is in the middle of taxis, no shops, nothing for many miles...this place is recommended to be avoided...
