Had a fortnight here mid February. sorry for the late review. This place ticks all the right boxes. Staff fantastic. Location fantastic and even got 3 evening meals thrown in per week as booked with Thomson. Great food on par with the nicer restaurants in the area. I for one shall return in a year or so as can't fault the place.
Well done lagoa !
Adored this beautiful hotel.. from the second we arrived we were treated like family/ royalty/ old friends all rolled into one..honestly couldnt wish for more. Staff and management cannot do enough for their guests and we were relaxed immediately.. we will return. How could we not?? Thank you soo much to all the staff and management for making our stay so memorable. Xx see you soon !

We spent two weeks at the Lagoa Azul, myself, my wife and our 14 year old son.
I guess like everybody that comes to Goa for the first time, the taxi ride from the airport is an experience you will never forget. Crazy traffic, sights that make you most uncomfortable, however when you see the Lagao Azul, relief all round.
Check in quick and easy, nice refreshing fruit juice to cool you down. The guys on reception are always smiling and pleased to greet you.
We had a top floor suite. Double bed in the bedroon, and a single bed in the Lounge. Loads of room. Air con worked really well, and fans in the lounge and bedroom. We found that if we opened all the windows, the breeze that flowed through was amazing, so much better that the A/C.
Pool was always clean, sunbed situation was ok, you still get the 'no show reservers' though.
Tabla restaurant in the hotel was amazing. We were with TUI so had choice of the full menu. I believe if you go with Thomas Cook, you have 3 x free meals a week, but it is a limited menu. Either way, great food, fantastic service. Now I know we British dont want to do Indian food for Breakfast, Lunch & Tea. However please try the Masala Dosa at Breakfast, to die for!
Plenty of local food/drink avaliable. 100 Metres away is St Sebastian. Yes it doesnt look much, but the food is amazing, and the beer is ice cold, and the best value. Further toward the junction you have You and Me, Honey, and Anands, all great.
A little bit further, to the junction you have Relish, O' Prato and Starlight. A little bit further on, Nicks. All walkable
Jamies near Baga is a shuttle/taxi ride away, a little bit less Indian it that's your thing.
Wherever you eat/drink, you wont be disappointed.
All of the above serve great food, superb value, and for those of you that judge a holiday price on the price of a pint (like me), around 80p, and 30p for a gin or Honey Bee (Brandy).
So out and about, Baga beach first! Well! It is an amazing experience, the beach bars are fab, and they will look after you like never before, its busy, really busy, but fantastic.
We went to Morjim beach a couple of times, took a taxi from the hotel it was 1500 Rupees return, he will pick you up later in the day or next day if you wish (We stayed in a beach hut for the night). You pay the driver on the Return to the hotel. Again, amazing service.
As per the previous review, there was an attempted bag snatch. However the hotel security and the local guys were amazing, we really did feel safe there all of our stay.
Would I go again?....Absolutely, and stay at the Lagoa Azul?....No point in staying anywhere else!
