  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

Lovely service, food, pool, clean

We were so well cared for and got to know the staff. Clean comfortable rooms, tasty and affordable restaurant. A fantastic bargain. The only take away is it is not a walk to Panjim and cabs can be pricey—but you’re next to the nicest cleanest beach in town.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
  • Disliked: Room comfort

Very noisy neighbours made for an unpleasant stay. Rooms were great for the price. Gym equipment wasn't great. Not the best location but it is walking distance from the beach and nearby Cidade Resort. All in all,
