Very good facilities, good ambiance and staff is very helpful.
It is very near to candolim beach. It hardly takes 10 min to reach there. The place is clean and nice and staff is well behaved. If someone is looking for cheap and good place to stay in goa then Manvins Inn is the only option
We checked in on 1st October 2014. It was pick season started.
1. We find it difficult to locate the hotel. It is not in main road. But a bit inside, as nobody seems to know about it.
2. It costs us @3200 per night with out a/c. Way to costly compared to the amenities they give. You can easily get a 3-star hotel @ that price.
3. Manager was a rough guy with bad attitude. Other stuff were polite and responsive.
4. Complementary breakfast was horrible not adequate at all, also with very less options.
5. Above all they had a policy of giving complete stay money @ time of check in. Which I think very weird and complete unnecessary.
Good point is they had a nice swimming pool and location is @center of city.
I visited Goa in month of March and stayed at this place with family. Well i bought the voucher for only stay in this place @very cheap rate from Ebay, but received all the facilities they have as complement and good will.
During march Goa is less crowded. The hotel is very very close to beach even the sound of the ocean waves audible and the water is visible from this place. Even though i didn't pay this hotel directly and paid very nominal amount compared to their rates, they have given me pick up and drop from Panjim for free in a car which is approximately 50kms each. They have arranged a two wheeler for visiting local places, provided passes to Tito's disco for my family. though i have not paid for the meal plans still they have provided me few meals and when i asked them to pay during check out they denied to take any money.
The place is clean and nice, staff is well behaved, service is good. However if you have children with you then this place might feel small because this is not a resort. If someone is looking for a cheap and good place to stay only in goa and enjoy rest outside then bingo.
Most important thing: I earned some good friends, till now on all new year's eve i get calls from all the people i interacted during my stay like the manager, few staffs, the two wheeler rent person etc wishing me and my family for a nice new year ahead and they always ask me to come join them on party.
Have good time guys :) Go Go Goa....
Note: Guys there are no options in tripadvisor to choose for year 2010; since it's mandatory i have to put june 2012. But consider it as March 2010.
we checked in on 9th feb in the evening,we were given a room which looked quite okay for a price of rs.1700,with an a/c,we asked for an extra bed,which was also layed,but as we returned after having dinner,we switched on the a/c and it didn't work,on repeated requests we were not helped by the staff and the manager,the manger especially is very arrogant and not at all co-operative,for the extra bed they did not even give a blanket,on asking for changing the room or refunding the amount,he refused directly,saying that for paying this amount you will get this much only,we could not even sleep the whole night coz of the a/c,and could not even change the room,
even for the breakfast they told us that at the time of check in that there will be a choice of dishes to choose from,and in the morning they said that only 1 vegetable sandwich will be given,so we had to have breakfast outside,
the swimming pool is of the size of a baby pool,dont go by the photos given on the hotel site,the location is very inside and lonely not good to go alone at night.
all in all a very bad experience at this hotel,not recommended for anyone
