8.2.Very Good.
  • 4.0.Fair

    If you're from America do not stay here -This is not a 5 star hotel - It just has really nice decor -Staff is not trained well and many first line staff were interns that struggled to speak English - I have a team of over 300 staff in India and I know the difference and I am very forgiving on this matter. This staff was mostly comprised of those who are not up to par. -Wifi is a joke there. it was slower than dial up from the 90s Management said they would look into it but nothing changed. It was a total joke and probably purposely throttled. -There are two pool bars which got me excited but no one goes to them. Only twice there were two other people than me and my friend. Kinda kills the experience. This was during a time when they were fully booked. -Their food is pretty decent and really good if you like Indian food. Mama Mia is an Italian place with good food - They had several large events hosted by companies who were staying at the time and as a result would close some of their venues. I thought this was unfair to others. -They prohibit you from bringing your own alcohol -They prohibit you from having guests in your room -They accused me of trying to leave without paying even though I prepaid for this stay and I had a Credit Card on file for incidentals. This happened because I tried to have my bag loaded into my airport transport before checking out. This could've been avoided if I were allowed to check out from my side of the resort but that was not an option.

    Would have been better if we were given better details of the location, Near Baga beach is misleading. The hotel is remote and not in walking distance from the beach.

    Will not be back

    They charge way to much for food and drinks, plus to many rule to have to obey like ladies have to wear certain types of clothing in the pool, and you can not bring any item of food or drink back to the hotel or allow any visitor up to you room. The free wi fi is crap it is way way to slow as they want you to pay more for the better high speed package. Also the ratio of single man to families and couples is to high with these man just sit by the pool look at the ladies a bit creepy made my partner uncomfortable. WILL NOT BE BACK.
