This is a sprawling, beautiful beach resort on the Mondovi River where it enters Panjim. A majestic setting, though a bit removed from the historic old town. Modern, luxurious guest rooms. Our ground floor king room had a lovely patio and view of the river. The handsome common areas are open air with a tropical feel. You can dine indoors or on the terrace restaurant set by the pool beside the river.
We ate our meals inside and enjoyed the mix of well-prepared Continental and Goan cooking (it wouldn’t hurt if the menu indicated how spicy some of the local dishes are). Service was very attentive and professional (though it would be nice to limit the number of guest questionaires requested after meals).
Overall, a very pleasant stay.
We stayed for 3 nights. Though overall the stay was satisfactory but the resorts miss the WOW factor of a typical 5 star property.
1) Got room upgrade to Bay view with one major meal.
2) Kids play area and activity room very nicely done and managed.
3) pool was not operational but hassle free arrangement was done for pool in Grand Hyatt ( which was awesome)
4) Staff was responsive and supportive for any requirement
5) Beach though not private was well maintained and good for a walk or jog but not for enjoying the sea.
a) Room was small and little dated (hopefully refurbishment happens quickly)
b) Food unfortunately was a big let down, we were not fan of the offerings in general
c) Resort is not grand in terms of Open spaces.
It is a nice property with good views. The view of the sea from the hotel lobby is great. The quality of the food is fine but could be a little better. The hotel also has a swimming pool and a casino as well. Hotel does not have a private beach of its own.
I was here with family in first week of February 2020. We had booked 2 rooms and requested adjoining rooms but upon check in we were told that Hotels in India did not have adjoining rooms but they can give rooms next to each other the next day. We were there for 4 night and they did enough things for us to make up for this inconvenience and Misunderstanding. I really wan to mention, all there staff is very courteous and polite. Food is excellent and rooms service is quick. Pool area is very clean, plenty seating and clean towels, and rooms are beautiful. It’s worth taking ocean view room, for a great sunrise and sunset. Take a walk to the Miramar beach just 30 seconds from your room! I would recommend it to anyone coming from within India or Abroad if you are used to great service, food and view!
We spent a week in this resort as an ideal starting point to discover Goa. This luxury hotel is located directly next to a public beach. The amenities (pool, restaurants etc) are great and fit perfectly with the high quality image of this hotel.
One thing that made our stay special was the fantastic hotel team! Our special thanks go to Pranay (reception), Delana (customer loyalty), Edwin, Mamta, Kishore (restaurant), Ajmur (kitchen) and last but not least Bhupender and Bishnu (room service)! They all made our time there unbelievably comfortable with every day being special.
We can only recommend a stay there!
