Disappointed
Front office is not at all friendly. Some of the staff are quiet arrogant. The feel it’s the only hotel left in Goa. But I would never prefer anyone to stay in this property.

Exellotel
The stay at Novotel Goa Resort & Spa was excellent and very comfortable from all perspectives. It's remarkable how the property is maintained, staff is well trained and food preparations are delectable. It will always be the first preference for future stays in Goa. My special appreciation to their differently-abled housekeeping staff who (despite their natural limitations) strives for guest satisfaction. I'm impressed, honestly.

Poor service
Hotel is having good infrastructure facilities but service is poor. To start with 1) No valet parking 2) I had to ask 2-3 times at the entrance to take the luggage. 3) No welcome drink was served. However, when I showed my displeasure they offered me some drinks coupons. 4) No placards having extensions for in room dining, reception, laundry etc was there in the room. 5) The AC vent began to leak in my room. However, they were quick to rectify it. One does not expect such shoddiness from a 5 star. They need to improve on their service aspect.
