Stayed in May with family only for a single day. Had booked through makemytrip,
The rooms were old, with power going off frequently. Basically the resort has few newly renovated blocks, so if you take a room there, your experience would be better. Else do not take the old rooms.
The swimming pool was not well maintained as well.
The restaurant food was ok.
AT least 20 mins walk to the beach.
I had visited this so called resort in Goa for just one night with the mere advantage that this is closer to beaches. But I had a pathetic experience. The moment we entered the resort, the receptionist just showed such a bad attitude that we din even want to check in.... But since we had no other option we did.... The room given to us was smelling of fungus and they only sprayed a room freshener when we asked for it. Room was filled with mosquitoes and when we asked at the reception that there are mosquitoes in the room we were told to switch on the 'Good Night' machine. After insisting they came to our room with the mosquito repellent spray. The bathroom was dirty and was not even moped properly after the first guest had checked out. In the name of hospitality there was zero effort and they silently conveyed the message that if you don't want to check-in then we don't bother. I personally would not recommend this resort since you do not want such a turn off during your vacation.
We really enjoyed our stay in joia do mar.
Booked this resort cum hotel for one night only through MMT but once we reached there we stuck with a beauty and then we decided to stay there for two more nights with slightly higher price because property was sold out..it was clean and hygeinic and room was specious, property well maintained by the Management and the reason to give 4 star because of the breakfast,few selected options for the breakfast which I really don't like and the second thing which I really don't like is the pool area dint maintain well by the hotel which is really piss me off
Location was just perfect in the middle of the calungute area, facilities of scooter,car on rent available 24*7 just asked the guy at front office A nice and polite guy alwayz smile and ready to help Everytime..
Beaches just 5 min far from the resort
Candolim area just 10 minutes ride
Market 10 minutes too
Fantastic staff and excellent location would definitely come back here and recommend this hotel to the other people in future..
Thumbs up and thanx for everything
This resort cum hotel in Goa is an excellent place for accommodation with very nice ambience and reasonably priced. The rooms were spacious and clean. The hotel staff took utmost care to keep it neat and hygienic. Would definitely recommend others as it is nearby to two most popular beaches.
We stayed in the resort in the month of May, booked a family room for 3 nights thru a travel package. Family room has 2 separate bedrooms with a common toilet and a balcony, we found this convenient as we were traveling with kids.
Place is close to Calangute beach, little over 1 km I think (not walkable if you have small children).
For the most part during our stay, we had dinner on all days in the restaurant, food is good and reasonably priced, suits all palates, we ordered mostly dry items.
On the flip side, the sheets on the bed were worn out, old and had holes and stains, had asked the front desk to change the next night but it wasn't done.
There was some sort of fine dust falling from the ceiling here and there in the room probably because the property is getting old.
On the last day, we had a late night flight and our request for post noon checkout was politely turned down, however we got an extra hour grace period to checkout, by which time the room boy had come twice to check on us (force us out), we moved all our luggage to the reception area, had lunch in the restaurant and left to airport. I felt the front desk didnt go the extra mile here to accommodate the customer request.
All in all an average place for budget travelers with value for money, just deserves 3 starts and not more due to the negatives mentioned above.
