It was my first visit to this property but second for my wife and daughter, who had been here in October 2019.
Since then they made it a point to ensure that they visit again...this time with me!!
I had not reviewed for their first visit back in October 2019, which was a walk in for my wife and kid since a nearby 7 star resort did not live upto their expectation due to description error on booking.com.
HIRG staff back then too were courteous to attend to them and they had a memorable stay for 3N/4D.
This time around I decided to get in touch with the reservation desk well in advance and inspite of a packed season (26/12/19-30/12/19), Ms. Fatima Mascarenhas was patient enough to accommodate multiple changes in the plan and offer me the best rate considering the holiday season.
We took the half board package and booked garden view room for 3N/4D.
Check in was smooth as expected and we were upgraded to pool side room.
From the time I checked in, I could understand why my family wanted to come back here again...with me!!
It is a wonderful property with lush green lawns, amazingly huge pool,just 200 metre stroll to the pristine Mobor beach (sort of private beach as not many people venture here).
The staff was very courteous and would go out of the way to cater to our needs.
Special mention for Ms.Ashbelle at reception, Anagh, Chrisson, Brendon at poolside bar, Rajendra by the poolside, Ms.Manju at breakfast cafe.
My daughter would also like to extend her thanks to the teachers at kids section Ms. Cynthia and Arthur.
Everyone was good.
Surely going to come back here again.
Thank you :-)
We had a truly amazing, unforgettable & memorable stay at the Holiday Inn Goa between 18-21 Jan 2020. We took an all inclusive stay package with all meals. We were a family of 12 pax including an infant. Amazing property, spacious rooms with sit out balconies, many sit out areas, sparkling clean swimming pool, immaculate and well maintained lawns and a private beach with many activities. Attentive staff, prompt room service and outstanding food at the Cafe Zest. The kitchen runs a 24 hour service for baby food anytime of the day. Just wanted to say a huge thank you to Chef Anthony for giving us all the most delicious and mouth-watering sensational food. We thoroughly enjoyed & relished all the varieties of dishes especially the Dal Palak, Amritsari fish, other fish varieties and Desserts which were to die for. There was so much passion in every dish you created. You excelled in every way. Your food was delicious and presented superbly. Appreciation for all the staff @ Cafe Zest especially Manju who took special care for all our needs.
I shall love to come back again soon to enjoy the property and food
Holiday inn recent is a nice resort in cool and calm south Goa. Beach is very near to the resort. Rooms are neat and clean. Food is delicious. Friendly Hotel staff. Resort has neat and clean swimming pool, Gym, Tennis court, kids park.
Overall the property is good, nice location with access to beach. Service was average but I wanted to write this review as few things stood out for me. Firstly, some of the staff members went over and beyond when my son fell sick in arranging a doctor on the phone and getting me medicines late at night. Special thanks to duty manager at that time. Secondly, the kids activity room has lot of activities and excellent staff to keep the kids engaged for long. Arthur at the activity room is really friendly and polite keeping kids engaged in multiple activities.
Hotel can do better on food specially breakfast. Overall a good place for family and one can spend couple of days at the property without feeling a need to step out as there are many things to do including water sports at the beach.
Amazing property, Room cleanliness everything spot on. Excellent service and hospitality special mention to Mamta, Rutuja checked in with ease , Nelson , Irisis, Alivito, Francis , Ankit you guys are excellent thank you for everything and making our stay a memorable one . Will definitely be back again soon !! Kudos
