The most important mantra in any vacation is the experience and davasthali team ensured the same for me and my family. No surprises and high integrity...
“A sample of Value for Money”
Dec 26, 2018 | Trip Type : FamilyHas to be one of my memorable experiences in Goa, the management was quite welcoming and flexible with the arrival timing, which obviously added up to the experience.The resort is picturesque with the Hollander beach next door. Also, I'd like to take time to appreciate the effort put into the making of the interiors of the rooms, it did gel quite well with the view outside. Travelling with family meant food and accommodation to be a priority, I'd say Devasthali has hit the right notes on both fronts.I'd like to say my final thank you's to the management along with a promise that we'd be back soon.P.S I'm going to miss the pool side bar!
Dec 25, 2018 | Trip Type : CoupleI visited Devasthali not sure of what to expect after a gap of a few years. Well.. Its got better! The landscaping and the exteriors are immaculate and the rooms are as comfortable as ever.
What's actually superb was the food. The chef has set a new benchmark gourmet experience. Very appetising and special requests for goan sausages and items out of the menu were well taken care off. The service was exceptional. The head steward (volvin I think) knew exactly how to present cocktails and food alike.
Keep it up guys
Their suite was very comfortable and together with great weather it was a delightful experience
“God's own land”
Dec 25, 2018 | Trip Type : FamilyIn the lap of nature, surrounded by coconut groves Devasthali is truly a beautiful place to enjoy time with oneself. MJ's fine dining serves very fresh, delicious Goan cuisine along with the well prepared Staples. A cosy resort with a warm, friendly and attentive staff Devasthali is the place to escape to
Room tip: Rooms are big and spacious and come with a separate kitchenette
Dec 15, 2018 | Trip Type : CoupleStayed here two nights as I had a wedding in the neighbourhood. Was a little uncomfortable as we drove to the site....wondering where we were heading to...but in for a pleasant surprise!!
Room was big with a sitting..., a veranda or balcony both sides, A bar counter of sorts and a large bedroom.House keeping staff had women who did a fantastic job even when we needed an extra bed to be brought in for the second night.
Convenient for a family as two doors to the bath/toilet. Toilet tiles..little slippery s but keeping exhaust on..ensures it dry.
Restaurant staff is v good. There was a local guy serving us...forget his name. Breakfast was very good....variety and generous servings.
Nice ambience...greenery all around. Only drawback ..is the odd or late hour front office staff....who charged us a bomb for an emergency room that we needed 2am-7am..for 1 child and 2 adults.
My bookings were through front office mgr Anuj...extremely helpful and considerate...but I presume that even more hospitalityand understanding is offered by the GM...he makes all things possible..simply and silently.
Looking for peace far away fro the maddening crowds??? This is a place to relax and rejuvenate!!!
I love birds and oh there were so many here...flirting with me!!
Dec 14, 2018 | Trip Type : CoupleStayed here for 3 nights - excellent friendly service and excellent food - highly recommend the Dosa or Paratha at breakfast.
Very clean hotel and in a good location in South Goa to explore or just relax by the pool - 10-minute walk to the beach.
I attended a friend's wedding here and all I can say is that All of the staff were fantastic along with wonderful food!
Dec 10, 2018 | Trip Type : CoupleWe had a great stay at the resort in October 2018. The staff was very friendly and the food was awesome. The staff really went out of their way to make our stay comfortable even though the resort was having high Occupancy.

Sep 18, 2018 | Trip Type : FriendsGet pampered in luxury within one of the finest ambience in Goa. Devasthali is a property conveniently located at about 700mtrs from the beautiful Hollant Beach. We were a bunch of 6 friends on our yearly catch up. Hospitality was at its best whether at breakfast, lunch or dinner with very prompt service. Food was excellent and the way they took care of our needs could be called proactive. Rooms were quite comfortable with a nice view. The resort is designed beautifully and is maintained very well.
Overall I would say it was a fantastic experience and I would love to come back.
Sep 16, 2018 | Trip Type : SoloDevasthali has always been my first choice while visiting Goa.. The location of the resort is super convenient ..? Just five minutes from the airport.

Mar 8, 2018 | Trip Type : CoupleDevasthali is located just a few minutes away from the hollant beach and a few minutes drive from the bogmalo beach. Away from all the noise, this place is a very peaceful. The food was delicious with the chef himself taking special care of us. The staff took an extra step to make us comfortable by making things available to us, which we forgot. I suggest you definitely walk till the cliff which has a cross for a breathtaking sunset view. A must go if you want to be in the peaceful lap of nature.
“Very comfortable stay!”
Mar 8, 2018 | Trip Type : CoupleReally nice serene peaceful surroundings. Very accommodating staff. Requested a special dinner with my partner, the chef personally came and noted our choices and make special arrangements to make it memorable. Even complimented us with a glass of champagne.

The property is very well maintained with nice landscaping. Although the swimming was little small but it did not matter much as it was not crowded. Staff members were very courteous and soft spoken. Very prompt in room service.
Nice stay for family.

“Peaceful, Serene & Joyful”
Aug 4, 2016 | Trip Type : FamilyThere are times in life when you want to be in the midst of people, but be calm at the same time. Devasthali offers this unique option. A resort, set in the midst of nature and cut off from the hustle bustle of the city. We have been to Goa a number of times before and stayed near Candolim. But this was one helluva experience. The resort is beautiful and very well kept. The staff is not only courteous but more than willing to assist with anything you want. If anyone is fond of typical Goan cuisine - the chef can really spoil you. The rooms face a large number of coconut trees......which is a treat to the eyes. The resort has a small pool, but its fun being in there. We were in the pool for almost 3-4 hours everyday and played volleyball. The staff also arranged for a net, so that we could enjoy the game further. As I said earlier, the staff is super excellent. A must try option when you want to relax in Goa........
“Heaven falls here”
Aug 3, 2016 | Trip Type :Devasthali is not just a beautiful place surrounded by beautiful water streams and trees , but it's the place where you can view the actual beauty of goa. A place where the rays of the sun fall beautifully and where the rain droplets show the true purity and greenery of goa. The spacious rooms with excellent view add on to the goa feel . All in all , devasthali is the place I wana live in whenever I am in goa! The Resort itself makes me want to stay in there and experience goa.
“A little haven”
Aug 3, 2016 | Trip Type : FriendsIt's been six years since I last stayed at this little gem so when my friend planned a holiday there this July, needless to say I had my doubts. More so because my first visit to this place had been "AWESOME" to say the least and it is well nigh impossible to repeat such an experience. But I was wrong.
I entered with a little apprehension, wondering what the six years might have done. But it was such a joy....the same warmth the same courtesy and liveliness...it was like homecoming!!
Everything was spic and span and well maintained. The only thing that had changed were the plants....they had grown and hugged and enveloped the property in a beautiful precious way.
The evenings were electric!!!with the house band belting out fantastic music..keeping us on the dance floor late into the night. Well I could go on and on but to sum it up I would say that my stay at Devasthali was deeply satisfying and I would love to go back to it again and again.
“In the lap of nature”
Aug 3, 2016 | Trip Type : FriendsVisited this beautiful property with a group of friends and it was a memorable stay . Far from the city but surrounded by nature. And just 700 mtr walk to the beach. A place where time has no meaning. Welcoming staff, good food, spacious and clean rooms. We had a 2 bedroom villa with a beautiful view of lush green palm trees and stream flowing just outside. I enjoyed the walk to the beach. Highly recommended . Solace in the lap of nature.
“Green and serene”
Aug 1, 2016 | Trip Type : FamilyWow! What an excellent resort and super awesome staff, very warm and cordial. The place is just 10 mints from airport and sooooo peaceful. Love the view around, away from the hubbub. Take a walk out in the surroundings..the long and winding roads. Or just sit in the balcony which has a mersmerising view of forest green with a small rivulet flowing almost at ur feet. Trees laden with coconuts, welcome you as if to reach out to them. In all excellent food and once again a must visit. Hey guys what you waiting for! Goa and Devasthali go hand in hand in welcoming you.
“Away from the maddening crowd!!!!”
Jul 31, 2016 | Trip Type : FriendsSerene, peaceful, relaxing, so close to beautiful nature......you can feel the dew drops on the lush green leaves, the raindrops falling on your head, the soothing . melodious music in your ears........yet have sooo much loud fun & comfort of a metro 5 star. so many delicacies to satisfy our taste buds, session of spa to pamper you.....overall a package unforgettable..a typically feel Goa place. .want to again & again! so go for it ...(Y) neerja kapoor
“A memorable trip to my favorite destination, Devasthali.”
Jul 29, 2016 | Trip Type : FriendsThis second trip of mine to this wonderful Resort was even more memorable than the first one. Going after six long years, the place was more greener and more beautiful. The upkeep of the room was wonderful and no smell or dampness, inspite of continuous downpour. Loved the food and the delicious Goan cuisine that was laid during lunch and dinner. The only thing that is disturbing is the phone connectivity. The signals are weak and you have to look for corners where you can find the signals . But it is hardly a dampening factor in otherwise a wonderful resort and hospitable place of stay.
I would highly recommend Devasthali to all the first time visitors to Goa.
“Excellent Calm Retreat”
Jul 27, 2016 | Trip Type : FriendsThis place is in a very calm neighborhood , close to the beach . 10-15 min drive from the airport . It is very relaxing , lush green surroundings with lot of trails to walk around in the nice weather. Walk through the coconut trees trail to the nearby Dabolim beach. Clean ventilated rooms with nice and comfortable furniture . Ideal for Couples , Honeymoon getaways and groups who want a personlized place just for themselves to party .
“An Exotic Getaway!!!”
Jul 26, 2016 | Trip Type : CoupleA lovely place in lush green surroundings, clean spacious tastefully furnished rooms with spacious balconies overlooking the stream, a short walk through coconut groves to hollant beach, peaceful, tranquil, an eversmiling and courteous staff - truely a "Valley of Gods"
Nature's lap,'Devesthali, the Valley of Gods'
Jul 26, 2016 | Trip Type : FamilyIt was most relaxing,beautiful and to add to it the sumptuous food to satisfy you deeply inside, Nature at its best,cycling to the beach and the stream flowing by ,the lush green trees, the landscape,everything is so perfect,the calmness and the ever so courteous staff.
“A Memorable Stay”
Jul 25, 2016 | Trip Type : FriendsDevasthali is like a green heaven, whose staff pampers you to the fullest. Rooms are very comfortable and have amazing views of a stream running parallel to the hotel. Food was amazing. Looked forward to every meal. Would love to stay there again!
“Devasthali is a relaxing, serene resort in the heart of Goa.”
Jul 25, 2016 | Trip Type : CoupleJust ten minutes from the airport yet surrounded by greenery, its location is ideal for quick getaways. Our room was very comfortable had a spacious sitting area (great to hang around in with friends!) with a balcony that overlooked a stream flowing through the dense coconut grove. The food was delicious and the chef was extremely considerate towards our personal choices. The staff was immensely helpful; not seen but always around to tend to our each and every need. Evenings were made more enjoyable with a live band playing peppy music fit for the perfect Goan experience. Other activities included biking, swimming, heavenly foot massages at the spa and going to the semi-private beach that was just a short walk away. Our stay was all that we’d hoped for: peaceful, pleasant and all in all, fabulous and we’re definitely coming back. Devasthali truly lived up to its name, “The Valley of Gods”
“A very relaxing and comforting experience !”
Jul 25, 2016 | Trip Type : FamilyYet another visit to Goa but the very first to devasthali... I'm glad i stayed here... Unlike all stereotype hotels which are typically commercial, this one's cosy and warm. The staff is polite and courteous. It's a very neat and clean property with a beautiful and peaceful scenic view from the rooms (greenery and a water stream !) Rooms are spacious and tidy. They have an in house pool and spa facilities too ! A perfect choice to go to for in case you are looking for a weekend getaway with friends/partner.
“Soul Therapy....loving it”
Jul 25, 2016 | Trip Type : FamilyI love this place in the monsoons. Dont need to get out , just idle away your days staring at the coconut groves soaked in the rain from your spacious balcony or cycle through the paddy fields on an excellent paved road all the way to the quiet Hollant beach. The rooms are spacious , furnished in great taste and can easily accomodate a family. Take the suite with a living room as its super value for money. The indian and continental cuisine is par excellent. Had the steak and Pesto spagetti.. divine!! Stay here to unwind, just 8 mins away from the airport, travel is neither expensive nor tim e consuming
Room tip: take a rear facing room overlooking the stream
“Chill out holiday.”
Jul 25, 2016 | Trip Type : FriendsWe were at Devasthali with a group of friends to celebrate our dear friends special occasion. The complete resort was booked for us. And we enjoyed every bit of our stay. What I want in a holiday is solace, big clean rooms, crisp linen, smiling and prompt staff and decent food and that's what I got. It was a memorable stay. Highly recommended for people who want to stay away from hustle bustle of the city.
"It truly is the place where gods reside"
Jul 24, 2016 | Trip Type : FriendsWaking up to the chirping of birds, lush green surroundings and a gentle breeze blowing are a few of my favourite things ..................................and at Devasthali thats how you wake up . Excellent facilities, cooperative staff and very good service is what one needs to have a great holiday and that is exactly what we got . .I am a foodie and I just love trying the local food of any place that I visit and I simply gorged here on the prawn curry and the Goan style stir fried vegetables they were great .Also, the place has lots of lovely walks that one can go for and in case you don't feel like walking, one can cycle and burn the extra calories .......... The fantastic massage that I had at the SPA rejuvenated me completely . In case you are looking out for a relaxing holiday, a partying holiday with friends or a doing holiday this place fits the bill
Room tip: Stream side rooms have a lovely view

Its just 3kms from the airport and the perfect place to stay on the last day of your visit to goa to relax and reflect on your awesome trip. The beach is also very nearby the breakfast was very delicious. The rooms were clean and cosy.
“Worth every rupee we paid for our stay”
Feb 28, 2016 | Trip Type : FriendsWe wanted to stay for a night in south Goa and we opted this because of proximity to airport and the price they offered after discount from MMT. When we visited we found everything is perfect 4* start property. The location was serene and peaceful. Receptionist were little grumpy :) but where helpful. Staffs were very friendly helpful. The best part was food both lunch and breakfast was excellent though little pricey but thats OK. Will recommend for friends and family anytime in South Goa.
Feb 18, 2016 | Trip Type :We stayed in this property just for a night but it is definitely worth mentioning. The hotel staff were very courteous and quick. The room was super clean. All meals were simply delicious. 5 rating for the Chef, Manager - Mr. Anuj & his team :)
“Gorgeous and private”
Jan 13, 2016 | Trip Type : CoupleThe thing I liked most about Best Western Devasthali was that it was very secluded and private, right in the middle of tall coconut trees. Hollant beach was nearby, and despite being a small strip of shoreline it was pretty beautiful. I wouldn't mind staying there again some time. We had a lovely room and a little verandah outside which there were coconut groves, which was both eerie and beautiful. Lovely place!
“Peaceful and charming”
Nov 28, 2015 | Trip Type : SoloWe picked this hotel for its convenience to the airport, intending to stay there only one night, and I liked it so much I extended my stay another 3 nights. I stayed in 2 different rooms, and both were very spacious, impeccably clean, and nicely appointed. I found the beds to be very comfortable for my middle-aged Western back, compared to the overly-firm beds in many Indian hotels. The food is decent and the service is excellent. The grounds are lovely, there is a small swimming pool with adjacent bar, and the location is convenient to many attractions in Goa, yet very serene and quiet at night. I also highly enjoyed an Ayurvedic massage at the hotel spa. Highly recommended!
“Perfect resort to spend a wonderful holiday in Goa!”
Nov 8, 2015 | Trip Type : Travelled with friendsI was visiting Goa with a couple of friends and had an amazing stay at the Devasthali Resort. When we arrived in Goa after a long journey of flights, we were surprised that the resort was only 10 min away from the airport, which was really convenient. We were extremely well welcomed by the staff and fell instantly in love with this wonderful resort. We had a very comfortable stay in Devasthali: the rooms were very nice, clean and had an amazing view, the staff was very helpful and the food at the restaurant was truly delicious! It is very close to the sea and well located to visit Goa's amazing beaches. I would like to thank the staff and the management for the wonderful days I spent at Devasthali Resort. I definitely recommend this place to everyone and I'm already looking forward to spent some more time there!
“Holidays with Retreat”
Oct 30, 2015 | Trip Type : FamilyIt's green valley absolute close to Airport & best place to visit North & South beaches. Goa is famous for holidays & I strongly recommend Devasthalli Resorts for best memories of life. Hotel staff is very good & helpful, food is great, comfortable, clean. Play Caram, pool, any indoor games, enjoy pool, spa, cycling in nature, retreat what else's we expect in holidays!!
“Nice place for a quiet vacation”
Oct 9, 2015 | Trip Type : FamilyWe stayed in the hotel in early October 2015. The hotel is located in a village close to Dabolim airport, surrounded by lots of green vegetation. For those who seek solitude and are escaping from traffic noise and concrete buildings in metro cities, this is the ideal place. Service and food are very good, and the staff is polite and helpful. While some beaches in south Goa are closer to the hotel, you will need to travel far if you're going to Panaji and beyond to north Goa beaches.
“Nice and reasonable”

The pool area and gardens are wonderful - we spent few hours every day in the pool. 3. View from Room is gorgeous if you are checked in room facing back side greenary.

“Awaken and heal your souls !!!”
Jul 5, 2015 | Trip Type : FamilyJust Awesome and very aptly named ‘’Devasthali’ ... ‘The Valley of Gods’. So close to Goa airport that just 10 minutes drive and you find yourself wrapped up in lush green surroundings and much needed calmness .... to energize your mind and body. Being nestled in secluded interiors, far away from the hustle and bustle of city, and close to Bogmallo and Hollant beaches, it is an ultimate treat for peace-seekers and beach lovers alike. On arrival you are welcomed by the courteous staff and guided to your rooms. The rooms are spacious with a comfortable king sized bed in the bedroom and enough storage. A small electronic digital safe is also provided for securing your valuables/passport etc. The living room was big enough to lay a separate bedding for my teenage daughter and also had a little kitchenette in the corner well equipped with a small refrigerator under the counter, electric hot water kettle, complete with tea-coffee-sugar and creamer sachets. I would suggest if they could also provide a small electric induction cooktop. Both the bedroom and living room open out in a huge balcony. As the balcony is covered, you can enjoy your morning/evening tea or use it as an outdoor bar in the evening to enjoy your drinks, even during heavy downpour. There is an option of smoking/non-smoking rooms as well. You also have the option of rooms facing stream and lush greenery or pool side. In case you have little kids, then opt for poolside rooms to keep an eye on kids in the pool. The room service and housekeeping is swift. The resort also provides for pick up and drop facility from/to airport by Maruti Ertiga – large enough to carry a family along with luggage. During your stay, they also provide free pick up and drop at Bogmallo and Hollant beaches. My stay at Devasthali was truly a much needed romance with peace.

“VERY GOOD RESORT”

“Valley of Birds”
Mar 28, 2015 | Trip Type : CoupleThis is a gloriously quiet place in which to unwind at the end of a sociable holiday in Goa.Other than two or three trains a day the only sound is of a variety of birds, some of which are even kind enough to come and display their plumage to the admiring visitor. Within walking distance but out of sight there is one other restaurant in the valley which seems to be permanently closed and a little bar at the " beach" ( which in fairness is more a creek mouth than a Goan beach), so there is little traffic except on Sunday local youths seem to come for picnics.I can see that anyone looking for a party place would hate it! Breakfast food is good, evening food perhaps slightly less impressive but not bad.Taxis to other places are always available. On the two occasions we have stayed our large room has been immaculate, the small kitchen with tea coffee facilities and the constant really hot water in the shower bonus points I saw the pool cleaned at regular intervals and could find seats in the sun or shade around the clock provided I was prepared to move around the grounds. will definitely stay here again to get refreshed before a long flight home.
“Charming resort, and perfect for a weekend getaway to South Goa!”
Mar 17, 2015 | Trip Type : CoupleI visited South Goa with friends during the rainy season in July last year. South Goa was truly mesmerizing during this off-peak season, with no tourist rush. Though there was little to do or shop, as most tourist shops are shut during this time of the year, we enjoyed ourselves just soaking in the beauty of the South Goa beaches like Bogmallo that are as yet untouched by commercialization typical of north Goa beaches. We visited all the important churches, museums and palaces in old Goa, visited quaint little cafes in converted Portuguese houses near Panaji market, and tried the offshore casinos. We stayed at Best Western Devasthali resort. It is an idyllic and cozy little resort, with beautifully decorated, luxurious and spacious rooms with attached balconies that have a forest view. The staff were unfailingly courteous. Plus, the in-room food service as well as complimentary breakfast were superb. The resort also offers a mini pool, an Ayurvedic spa and in-door board games in the lobby. Also, there was a shuttle service from the airport. I would recommend this resort to anyone who wishes to go for a chilled out, laid-back, short vacation to South Goa.
“off the beaton track”
Dec 1, 2014 | Trip Type : CoupleThis is a very friendly place. The hotel is an oasis in the heat of Goa. It is clean and well presented. The gardens are loved and cared for. There is a small swimming pool and the beach is a 15min walk through a beautiful green lane under a canopy of trees.The beach has three life guards. My room was clean and well thought out. The bed was very comfortable with lots of pillows. There is a modern TV. The couch is lovely to relax on. The desk is large and good to work from and the small kitcken area provides adequate refreshment.The balcony has two chairs on it and give views of the woods behind the hotel.It is extremely quiet. Across the road from the hotel is a taxi service. They will recommend tourist attractions and take yo anywhere you need to go. The restaurant provides the tastiest food and if you love fish dishes you will have to stay longer to try them all. The restaurant has an extensive menus to suit

“'A Heavenly Retreat'”
Nov 10, 2014 | Trip Type : CoupleAmazing experience! It was a perfect 3 day break for me. Arrived at the hotel within 5 minutes from the airport in the hotel minivan.As we entered the valley it was a beautiful sight to see lush green coconut groves bringing me very close to nature We were greeted very warmly by the hotel staff and it was a smooth checkin. The tastefully done spacious room overlooking a stream added to the quiet and peaceful environment.The early morning walk to a quiet beach closeby was very soothing for a naturelover like me. The food was great and service was prompt. The Chef catered to all kinds of cuisines in our 3 day stay. One of the evenings we enjoyed dancing to the tunes of Goanfolk played by an awesome liveband. We explored SouthGoa the last day It was an hours drive to the Calangute beach and marketplace to take back home little souvenirs. Overall an awesome experience at Devasthali! Would love to go back again!
“Excellent Honeymoon Place”

“Yet another pampered stay....”
Oct 7, 2014 | Trip Type : SoloVery fact that management sincerely cares about my review and kindly reminds for my feedback is enough to show how dedicated they are to provide the best service to their Guests. And this is exactly what stands out to me whenever I have stayed at Devasthali. At this property from top management to ground level staff everyone is driven by one mantra that is to make their guest feel comfortable, at ease, taken care of and special. After all that is precisely what everyone wants when vacationing, to be pampered :). They just got it right! Having said that the Sunrise I have seen lying in my bed into the Coconut Grove is etched in my mind forever. It was surreal. Thick Coconut Grove which spreads as far as you can see by the property is rejuvenating and unique feature of this property. Being a foodie I loved elaborate breakfast buffet, I thoroughly enjoyed unwinding in spacious and tastefully done comfortable rooms, while hanging around outside area whether near pool or in lawns I never felt intruded even though property was fully booked over the long weekend of 2nd October when I was there. Nearby Bogmalo beach and Shacks, another beach accessible walking through typical Goan village, friendly Taxi Service to go around Goa and being at throw away distance from airport are the additional features and services which make this property for me the best choice and for anyone looking to 'recharge'!
“Always my best experience in GOA”
Aug 10, 2014 | Trip Type : FamilySo, this is my 4th stay at Devasthali and it's never failed my lofty expectations. THE FEELING OF Space - the rooms are excellent. Large and very tastefully done with great views of the coconut groves. The hotel though compact, has distinct and pleasant walkways with beautifully manicured landscaping The extra 'lil something'-My request for Goan sausages was taken seriously and served to me for bfast the nxt morning even though it wasn't on the menu. The tranquillity and peace- I'm always amazed at how relaxed I get whenever I'm here. Never too crowded - the hotel was packed to the hilt yet for some reason, I never got that feeling maybe due to the well structured rooms. Great food - my gastronomic experience here was all about pork sorpotel, seafood rechaedo and Goan kingfish.. outstanding. Thank you Devasthali and staff
“Viva La Goa @ Best Western Devasthali”
Jun 25, 2014 | Trip Type : CoupleThe most amazing stay ever in Goa....Situated in a cozy and Green surroundings this property delivers as it says Devasthali....meaning " The Abode of Gods ".....True as it is named the services were as if to please the Gods...Clean Spacious rooms surrounded by greenery. Situated away from the hustle bustle of the busy traffic and commotions this hotel was a must have treat. Room Service and other help delivered by the staff was prompt. We must have bombarded with so many questions and the staff responded with kind gesture and with a smile. The food served was excellent. The complimentary breakfast was not a buffet but a-la-carte which we feasted with much pleasure. The hotel offered a Goan tour as per choice which did not pinch the pockets.... What more.....just enjoy the stay !!!!!
