This was our second time stay at the Sandalwood Hotel and Retreat and It was the same.... We loved it. This time we went with our cousins and his 2 kids. They loved the stay and we all decided to extend out stay by 2 days. So we stayed there for 5 nights. The hotel is a home away from home. lovely place - lovely hotel.

The hotel exceeded my expectations in every aspect, was value for money. I am a hotelier myself and i must say, i was a bit apprehensive about this hotel but as soon as we checked in all doubts had gone and i and my wife enjoyed our stay there. One must try out their spa and continental food on offer at the coffee shop. i will return and also recommend to my friends.

I liked everything in this hotel except the hotel room. The room was very much congested, i faced problem with hot and cold water for first 2 hours. The staff are very friendly and other facilities like restaurant, swimming pool, bar and open areas are well maintained.

Never come back this hotel and never recommend anybody Never come back this hotel and never recommend anybody

by Jafar M on February 17, 2017

This is not good hotel to come back again and no recommend anybody because of: 1- we every day should ask to bring us shampoo and soap and change bed sheets they do it untill ask ! 2- breakfast is so simple and no variety. 3-mafia in taxi service and because of no other choice you should their taxi and any price they offer. 4-every day we should come to reception because our key card doesn't work! 5 design of rooms like cheap hostel in roads, even no tissues in rooms! Never come back there and never recommend to you

Poor service, inconvenient location, frustrating stay. Poor service, inconvenient location, frustrating stay.

Not a great value for your money. This is our fourth and last night here - my husband came for a conference so this was the closest location to venue that was somewhat affordable. However, if we had a choice, I would not stay in this part of Goa to begin with, as this particular hotel does not have convenient access to rickshaws, and hiring a cab for everything becomes expensive. The basic rooms are very compact so we upgraded to a deluxe premier which was huge, with a living room space and 2 balconies. The place has a lot of potential but the horrible service ruined our stay in Goa. The hotel's pros: Nice landscaping, pool and buildings (no beach view though) Breakfast included, which is decent Food menu is priced fairly and has a decent selection Beach access ( 2 minute walk) Now for the cons: Ordering practically anything is a hassle. The staff are really incompetent and totally unprofessional, and the female receptionist seems like she has no clue how to help tourists. None of them seem to be trained. The person sitting at the taxi desk was not attentive, paid more attention to his mobile than to us, and could hardly communicate - and there was no language barrier. We ordered 2 glasses of Sauvignon Blanc, as listed on the menu, and the wine they gave us was the color of whisky and tasted like vinegar, it was so old. On an other occasion, we ordered a beer and it took more time to get than the food order, and the server didn't bring a glass or open it until we reminded him. The first 2 nights there was no hot water in the shower. When it does come, it's so hot it burns. We had asked for the room to be cleaned and had to remind them twice to do so. Tonight at 10pm the front desk called us and asked us to settle our bill (but we had already signed for the dinner-room service, so I asked him what bill, as we weren't checking out till the next day. But as the original booking was for the small room, he insisted that we had to come down and it couldn't wait until the next day. I found this highly unusual and totally inappropriate. We had been in the hotel room since 7pm and did not receive any call earlier. Overall, if you don't mind a bit of a hassle, this place may be fine for you, but if you have high standards, you will be disappointed, because you will certainly not get your money's worth. The beauty of the grounds are not reflected in the rooms, service or management.

Just Nice Just Nice

by Vis1701 on February 6, 2017

its a nice hotel, with all that other hotels in the range offer , pool and bar facilities. however the attendants around the pool are not very efficient and take a long time to prepare order. even if just a beer out a bottle. I biggest issue was the bath showers in our rooms - they did not have a regulator, we constantly had to make adjustments to the hot and cold water to ensure that we did not get burnt. secondly, the air-conditioning unit is situated on the balcony , so should you wish to sit outside on the balcony, you have the hot air from the motor on you if it is in use.

Disappointing service Disappointing service

by Ross_C_1991 on February 3, 2017

We arrived at Sandalwood late on the Friday night to find that the twin room we had booked was in fact a double. The staff were unhelpful in resolving this and this continued throughout the stay. Arranging for taxi's was also a challenge, as the receptionists seemed to be pre-occupied with other activities. It wasn't all bad however, the beach just round the corner was very quiet and a great way to relax, with sunbeds reserved for guests.
