We stayed at this hotel over Christmas and New Year 2008/9. Reading the reviews on Trip Advisor after we had booked we did think that we might have made a terrible mistake but it was fine. The rooms are big, try to get one overlooking the pool though. We started off overlooking the back yard of the bar next door but were moved when we asked. The food was of a good quality although there wasn't must choice especially at breakfast. The bar staff were very attentive and looked after us extremely well. The swimming pool area was clean and the pool although cold very good. At Chrstmas and New Year the staff made a fabulous effort and treated us to two great gala dinners. If you are in Calangute at New Year make sure you spend it on the beach the atmosphere and fireworks were fantastic.
The location of this hotel is great. Just outsaide the busiest part of Calangute but easy to walk into. There are lots of shops and restaurants locally if you want a change from the hotel food, we particularly liked "Kebabs and Curries". There is also the most fantastic Spa and Beauty Centre about five minutes walk away. Treat yourself to an Indonesian massage you won't regret it.
All in all we enjoyed our Chrstmas here, yes the rooms are a bit tired and dated but the staff and the location are both good. You get what you pay for and this hotel is good value for money. We did try to come back in March but there were no rooms available but we did pop in for a drink on our way back from Anjuna (we ended up staying in South Goa) and the staff seemed pleased to see us and all came to say hello.
