Goa!! We stayed for 4 days and 3 nights. It was an overall very good experience. The staff were courteous both at the reception and as well in there restaurant which is called Pickle Mango. Prakash was the best who is part of Pickle Mango with his hospitality.

Positives: - Excellent food at Jalsa and great service at lunchtime from our waiter who talked us through an exceptional Thali meal - Nice bar with music and good service....

Fantabulous place specially because of the culture and staff attitude. Special mention of Durgesh who takes special care to ensure guests comfort. We were thoroughly impressed. The location is excellent and the breakfast buffet needs a special mention.

Stayed in this property second time. Overall experience was good. I just had the buffet breakfast at the hotel it was not good. Better to go outside if u r buying the buffet. Rest everything is recommended other than food. It was clean and presentable.
