The resort will give you a real Portuguese look in design and it is really well maintained. Our room was a deluxe category which was clean and equipped with all modern facilities one could ask for.staff is amazing and helpful. Tarun,housekeeping manager was frequent at taking feedbacks and assured our stay went well.
Its one of the best places i have ever been to. Now let me make it clear its not on the beach, as in it does not have a beach view, but it is still very close to the beach like you can reach there in a min. The staff is so amazing and always smiling ... felt really pampered. The rooms are expensive but definitely worth it.. The swimming pool is superb and the massage service is wow !!! There are 2 restaurants the republic of noodles is a pan asian restaurant, can you believe it we do not like pan asian food and the staff insisted for us to try it, we just ordered starters to see if we like it and ended up having a full dinner, without wasting a single bite. The other restaurant is where we had our breakfast.. (though the breakfast was mostly the same all three days but still it was tasty). I would like to make a special mention of Joesfast the housekeeping guy, Mr Jophilip the front desk person at night and Mr Indrajeet the front desk person, these people are just super professional and nice and the best is they made us smile always. Thanks guys ... over all i would like to stay there again for sure.... lastly there is one thing that i didn't like... since we didn't get a room on the first day at lemon tree, we stayed at Pheonix park inn which is just 2 mins walking distance from lemon tree, when we checked out we requested the lemon tree people to get our luggage from there , they refused but the best part was that pheonix people helped us... and also wifi is just free for one person, which is stupid....anyway it was all good in the end...
what a fabulous resort I had a great time indeed at this hotel,a big thanks from my family first of all. To start my stay was wonderful speacial thanks to my Housekeeping person Deshwant. He was really helpful and kept our rooms super clean and well organized. I m coming back again for sure.
Having stayed at many five star hotels, I find the service and staff of Lemon Tree to be no different. Having stayed in 3-4 of them has convinced me that service is superior than product. Now i select my holiday destination based on whether there is a lemon tree hotel there or not!
This resort is at almost the perfect location, with many happening beaches nearby; its right on the street which has electrifying atmosphere throughout the day and needless to say, in the night as well.
The food (my entire family is pure vegetarian) is just too delicious. The chef and the service staff is so hospitable that they go out of their way, everytime, to ensure that you end up overeating. The rooms are spacious (we stayed in the Heritage room), the room service is very responsive and courteous.
Special thanks to the General Manager of the property, Mr. Nikhil, who ensures that you are well taken care of, is extremely co-operative and generous too. Many thanks to Mr. Manoranjan as well who helped us in the procuring a self-driven cab.
The review would be incomplete without a special mention of the Pan Asian restaurant - Republic of Noodles - RON as it is fondly called. The restaurant is a happening place, with live music in the evenings, and sumptuous food being served throughout the day.
The entire staff clearly reflects the true Goan spirit - cheerful, gracious and always ready to help. This is certainly a hotel which urges you to stay a few days more, but alas, we have to return to our jobs, schools etc....yawn!! so boring.
But in true Schwarzenegger swag, I would like to say - I'LL BE BACK.
had the worst experience during our stay at lemon tree. They have appointed thugs in the front office, whose only look out is to rob the guests.
the problem is that we cannot book a self driven vehicle without the consent of the lemon tree receptionist. no vendor was ready to supply a self driven vehicle for rent. i had to book through the receptionist. and the receptionist got 2200 as commission from the vendor which was revealed to me later. later at the checkout time they charged service charge Rs. 4986. oi was surprised to see that for the the total bill of Rs. 11224 service charge was 4986. When i raised the issue they immediately made a new bill stating extra bed for 3 days @ 1500. + 486 service charge. The rooms were too small for the amount they charge. service and the food was good. but yes got disturbed with the behavior of the front office person. it seems the software itself suited foor them to do such manipulations.
