Our room was at pool side so we had great view from balcony specially during rain.Rooms are clean n good,Staff is decent. Market and many restaurants are near by, back side thers way to beach and candolim beach is nearby. SinQ and aguada fort at the other end, bikes and taxi available besides the hotel, so over all it was good in off season too.
Only problem we face here is limited food due to off season but many restaurants around.
This was our 3rd visit to the ASR and it wont be the last. A lovely welcome back from many of the staff a lot of whom were their from previous visits. What can we say, this is a small hotel with a big heart. The breakfasts are basic but you can order eggs any which way you like and the chef caters for those with special dietary requirements. The evening meals are very good with steak nights, sizzlers and a-la carte evenings too as well as various Indian choices. The staff will bend over backwards to help you and are always polite and have a smile for you. Lorna on Reception is very helpful and Sukumar at the bar is amazing. The staff serving you at meals deserve a mention too, Babu, Santosh, Subrata, Biswajit, Mrnhal, Vincent and Saubhagya to name but a few not forgetting Morris.
The rooms are basic, some with a living room, kitchen and separate bedroom but always kept clean. We had a ground floor room which was our preference and loved it. Thank you Sam for looking after our room. There are plenty of beds and chairs around the pool and its nice to be able to have a dip to cool off although we quite often went to the beach for the day which you can access down the side of the hotel and takes about 10-15 minutes depending on the heat.
This is a gem of a hotel and if you are looking for a friendly hotel where the staff remember you from previous visits and the food is lovely then look no further then the ASR.
We have been there in April 2019 and it was the best holiday we have ever had! Very friendly staff, delicious food, great entertainments, cooking lessons, rooms were basic but very clean with AC , everything was just perfect, we are definitely coming back to this hotel and we would like highly recommend it to everyone who is looking for a quiet, relaxing place! Thank you for making our family holiday beautiful!
This isnt a big, bold out there hotel, but this is why the Adlerian Santa rita is perfect. Its small size makes for meeting people and getting to know each other, its a small piece of candolim where the staff are great, the food cooked for you is cooked well and where the cook hasnt forgotten that the English are arriving, and so they also have a snack menu of chips, toasties and evening meals where they cater for all with their steak nights, barbecue and sizzler nights.
The pool although looks small is actually the perfect size and doesnt allow inflatables unless as an aid which people do stick to, there is no need to put towels down as youll always get a bed, what its like at different months I will get to see as I will be back.
The staff here are great and nothing is too much trouble, I can really see why people return year on year to this hotel. Its not the ritz by no means but it is clean and old style.
Although it is at the further end of candolim, the taxis are cheap and theres a tuk tuk to jump in for a couple of pound. Theres also many shops right by the hotel if you do need tobacco, sweets or medicines as well as clothes and gifts.
The beach isnt far away but it does feel like a trek on the hot sand when you are coming back. The streets are dusty and do have cow droppings with them having free reign over the streets, so bare this in mind when choosing shoes for walking.
Johns boat tours are much cheaper for identical trips against tui so please shop around before booking. If you thinking of doing the Taj Mahal this is 560 per person with tui for 3 days to give you an idea. We didnt do it as you can pay half this if booked from the uk before you go.
Overall we have loved this holiday and will be back.
Our first visit to Goa , we were told if you get through the first 24 hours youll love it !!! We flew from Birmingham with TUI on the 15th April . After landing at Goa airport we were warned about Immigration . What a fiasco 1 and half hours in a queue. Then another 1 and half hours on the coach waiting for the other half of the plane to get through Immigration !!!. Finally got to our hotel at 3.30 am . We were shown to our room and finally our holiday started !! The rooms were basic but very clean . We had a amazing holiday here . We couldnt fault anything . The staff were amazing too nothing was to much trouble for them . The food was amazing also we never had a bad meal .Special thanks to Lorna from reception who so helpful, and Sukumar at the bar for getting us drunk lol . We would definitely go back to this little Gem . We can understand why people come back here .
