Very slow check-in. Receptionist (family member of the owner) was reluctant to give a receipt for payment of the room, and then took an age to write one. Obtaining a wifi password from the reception desk was byzantine and frustrating. No mosquito grill over the bathroom shuttered-glass window, so no way to stop flies entering the bathroom. Breakfast service so...

Just when you have been sucked out in the parties and boozes in North Goa, South Goa spreads out its arms to detox you. Quaint and laid back, evident from the no traffic lights rule in South Goa. And the cherry to the pudding was the unplanned stay at Failaka in Benaulim. This is a family run hotel that may...

The hotel is small and cosy. Yes, rooms look small. Exactly look, not are. When you understand what is what, you like it. You have enough of furniture and space. If you are not going to dance there. :-) The hotel is clean. The rooms are clean. If you don't want anyone enters when you are not there - don't...

Checked in late at night, no one to help with baggage to second floor room, no elevators, rooms small and crummy. Bed sheets dirty, ac noisy and not effective. Bath room has no towels or hanging area. You dare not put your belongings in the cupboard, musty and dirty. All night traffic noise from the road disturbs your sleep.

Dear Guest, We are not surprised by this negative review of a one night stay but weren't expecting it. Firstly, rooms were booked by a Five Star hotel in our vicinity for accommodating its employees for the BRICS summit, you being one of them. The starred hotel has sent many of its employees previously some of whom stayed with us...

Hi, I stayed in this hotel for 2 days during the Road Trip in February 2016 along with my brother. The hotel is located near Maria Hall, Benaulim, Goa. I booked this hotel through Goibibo at a very competitive price under the GoKarde offer. We were welcomed by a wonderful lady at the reception. After the documentation, we were given...

Ate here a number of times when staying in Benaulim and the food was really nice. Service was good and the pizzas were lovely. Would definitely use again, thanks. Not sure why the place was quiet unless it's because the place was a couple of minutes walk from Maria Hall.

We went to Failaka four times and somehow it just failed to make a spark. Service very hit and miss, having waited 40mins for drinks on one occasion we checked out without eating. Menu choice looks quite comprehensive but on closer inspection many of the offerings are not available (or allegedly out of stock!) Feel it should do much better...

Thank you so much for your visits. Sincerely apologize for the shortcomings you had to encounter. Although the restaurant is part of the hotel it has been outsourced to a third party operating externally under a different management with their own branding. It's unfortunate that they haven't yet opened their own TripAdvisor page for guests to review. Have taken up...

My wife and I had six nights here and struggle to think of negatives. Spotlessly clean, very helpful and friendly staff, short walk to the beach and exceptional value for money. Would come back and stay without a second thought.
