“Decent value for money”
Reviewed 14 March 2012

This hotel is a 'Thumb's Up' for a budget stay.. close by the beach and in the centre of the city. The rooms are neat and clean and the food is pretty decent.. i would definitely recommend people who wld make a quick trips to Goa...
I have stayed with my family for 5 days and all throughout the stay in goa, i have had a pleasant stay in there. Absolutely no -ve reviews.

Room Tip: rooms facing the pool side are good rooms with a view.

All the positive reviews of this hotel have already been written after the hotel rooms' reconstruction and new designing (2010-2011), look at the reviews! I fully agree. I have nothing negative to say.
In addition, because the hotel is not too big, the staff have possibility to learn to know you, so you can many times feel like a special guest.

There are no pavements, so walking is not very nice on the roads in Goa.
A hint to you, who still like walking:
If you want to have dinner in Candolim or in Calangute try walking there on the beach (Candolim left and Calangute right, when you come to the beach from the hotel). If leaving appr. 6 PM, on your way you'll enjoy a wonderful sunset.
Return taxi to the hotel appr. 100 INR.

This hotel definitely deserves another star. We have just come back from our stay here. We had taken a Luxury room and it was huge. The bathroom was super clean with excellent fittings. The bed was well made with nice comfortable pillows and bolsters. THe sitting area in the room was good, though we did not use it much. The rooms also have attached balconies where one could sit and have tea or chitchat.

The best part is the proximity to the beach. The beach is just a minutes walk from within the hotel. Its more like a private beach. This beach is peaceful with no water sport hawkers hassling you. All you need to do is go swim come back be on a shack read, drink and go back and swim again. That is exactly what we did.

The hotel is also in a nice location. Its isolated but still well connected. We had hired a scooty for Rs250 a day and used to go out for dinners every evening. Just a 15 mints ride would take you to the heart of all the hustle bustle.

A highly recommended hotel. :)

Room Tip: We had taken the Luxury room. You can go for it. Was excellent.

If the manager would take care of his staff with the needed training and clean of new uniforms and maybe change the kitchen staff hotel guest might even stay for dinner.
But he rooms and the pool area are good and the closeness to the beach he can not spoil.

As we wanted to see North Goa before heading to quiet South we booked Sonesta Inn for 3 nights.

The hotel is located near the sea in good Candolim beach. There are many shacks on the beach, but it isn't too crowded. You have to bring (or buy) your own beach towels, though. The hotel pool is OK by size, but it may be difficult to get a bathing chair.

Rooms are spacious and very clean, sheets and towels show some wear, but this is within OK limits. The door might be a little thicker if you get loud neighbours. The TV is in awkard place and difficult to watch. The inroom menu has lots of choices and good prices (just don't order pizza). The food is also very nice. Only thing you can really complain is the breakfast - limitied choices and they don't even serve normal coffee.

Staff is friendly and everything is arranged quickly if "inside main process" - you can't have wifi password outside office hours etc.

Overall nice place and good value hotel.
