Over-priced and underwhelming.
Posted Nov 4, 2014
Perhaps by Goan standards this place is good, but despite its picture-postcard setting, I think it’s over-priced and lacking basic facilities.
My room was lacking some obvious amenities including a fridge, bath mat, hair dryer, tissues, phone. All pretty standard for a “3+ star” hotel, even in India, no?
Towels supplied aren’t of good quality and have ‘marks’ meaning they don’t look clean even if they have been washed. Bed linen and table cloths had holes and dirty marks too.
Poor tea and coffee making facilities - well actually they don’t supply coffee. Tea and sugar in a dirty bowl. In my room the kettle was located nowhere near a socket so I had to place the kettle on the floor.
Like most rooms mine had a large (CRT) television with a terrible analogue reception. Some of the “lux” rooms have flat screen televisions. Overall I’d believe there is a LOT this “hotel” or “resort” can do to improve. It is WAY too expensive compared for what it offers. From what I can gather, accommodation options in Goa are expensive. You have to pay a lot if you want something nice, as the cheaper options are not very pleasant at all.
Sadly a lot of the best places book up early, so whilst there are lots of unpleasant cheaper options, like me, you may end up here because it’s the best of what remains. It’s not awful, but should be a lot better. Management really need to improve things! Summary: Over-priced and underwhelming.
