Very clean, well run hotel with very friendly and helpful staff. We stayed in Aug 2017. Rooms are clean, spacious and light. Food in the restaurant is good. Hotel has a private path to the Beach. The hotel is away from the tourist bars and quite isolated but we enjoyed this. Highly recommended

Room Tip: Upper floor rooms are better.

We had a business stay in the hotel from 13th September to 16th September.

Rooms are very big and spacious. Three ppl could stay very comfortably. Also there is a nice balcony attached to rooms.

Swimming pool is also big and good. We had a nice time enjoying the pool facility.

It had a beach attached to the hotel which is also good and aloof from crowd. You can enjoy privacy over there.

Only complaint was with food part. Food quality was not good. Not much variety in breakfast. And ala carte items were not so delicious.

The hotel is quite neat to Calingute and Candolim beach.

I would recommend a stay to this hotel.

Cheers

Stayed: September 2017, travelled on business

Lovely stay at a nice property. It had private access to the beach and it's own swimming pool.
About ten minute walk from the main road, a little scary to walk at night but we saw there were CCTV Cameras installed in this stretch.
The only negative thing is that guests are not allowed our friends had to wait in the car. Liquor from outside is not allowed even food is not allowed. I think they can be a less strict with this policy.

Thank you for giving us your feed back,

We maintain a very high level of hygiene in our restaurant and our kitchen,and we have regular checks/audits from a private firm,hence we do not allow any food to be bought from outside
We hope to see you soon on your next visit

This was my first time visit to India and I lucked out on finding this little corner of the world. It suited my needs perfectly and the pool area was clean and great. The staff went out of their way to accommodate you pool side, table side, travel wise. I stayed here one week and met several people from Europe who stay here every year for weeks at a time. The sea is a little walk down a path, but with accommodations like this, I did not go into the sand and wind. I will stay here again and have recommended it to many others.

Room Tip: Ask for upper level toward the garden.

We travelled end Aug to Goa and stayed at Sonesta Inn at Candolim.

Rooms are fairly large and squeaky clean and so are the bathrooms. The place is very well maintained.

The mattress was too soft for our liking and we informed the housekeeping and was promptly changed.

The service is excellent and the staff are very courteous.

The property has a decent amount of parking , if one travels by car or hires a car or bike in Goa.

The property in at the end of a lane and therefore very quiet and hence a cozy corner.

There is a fairly large well maintained pool.

Buffet breakfast is average, especially for vegetarians but there are lot of options available if one moves bit around the place.

There is beach right by the hotel property which is great, however, during our visit there was no watchman at the gate of the compound accessing the beach. The beach is a bit deserted and while great during the day, a bit dicey in the late evening considering there is no security.

Rent a bike, car is available just outside the property and therefore very convinient.

Overall a good place to stay.

Room Tip: Choose a room with a pool view
