“WOW..!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2012

We read a lot of good and few bad points about the Zuri.. All I can say is go on the good ones.. There are always going to be people who are not happy, just do your research..

Hotel. Big, Clean, Layout is Great, the hotel was fully booked whilst we were there (Mar 2012) but with the complex, pool, beach being so big, you can find times when you are on your own.. Yes the hotel is in south Goa, And it is quiet, but thats what we wanted..

Food + Drinks.. We ate in the hotel a few times at night, not too pricey, you pay for what you want, We had starter + main + bottle of wine for roughly £60 which I feel aint to bad for the atmos etc.. A beer (kingfisher bottle ) is 125r, but wine by the bottle is pricey.. Breakfast is the standard buffet style, and the blue lagoon bar is good for day time snacks + drinks,

If you want to eat else where, just go out the hotel, turn right, through the gate and on you right is a very pleasent bar, that does good curries etc, i went with the fish and its great.. Also just futher down on the row is a small shop, sells beer wine crisps etc, might be worth a visit.

Pool. Vast, fresh water, with a waterfall in middle, swim up bar.. great.

Beach.. has its own private part + cross a small bridge, Security guard on gate, and you are the longest white beach i have ever seen.

Staff.. I have never met so many nice pleasent people in my life..

Rooms, big, bed a tad hard, bathroom fine with just the walk in shower.. Big tv most channels, but you are on holiday so why stay in the room..

A few things could of been touched up here and there, but I was on holiday, not a hotel inspector..

Getting to and from hotel.. We checked up on this.. from Goa airport, go out the doors, turn left and just down on right hand side is a State taxi rank board with costs.. for a AC car cost us 800r, but coming back from hotel we had to use the ones provided, 1500r

Since the attcks in Mumbai, security has been stepped up big style, (by the time you get to hotel you would of noticed this) so do not feel put off when you arrive and get checked at the hotel... like you do at an airport, best be on the safe side..

We stayed here after a few days in Mumbai touring, And would recommend it to anybody who wants a get away relaxing time..

James.. UK

Room Tip: We had a balcony room facing pool, nice balcony to have a glass of wine and play cards.. very nice...

Stayed at Zuri for 3 days in december'11. The rooms were fantastic and comfortable. The food was awesome and the people were friendly.
The only problem is that this place is at the south end of Goa, and hence you are far away from where all the action happens i.e., Anjuna, Baga etc.

Nice place to relax for a couple of days. Food is on the expensive side - Rs 275 for a plate of Idli!
Will definitely recommend!

Room Tip: Choose the inner section of the hotel, towards the pool side.

We really enjoyed our stay, large room overlooking the smaller pool. Staff in restaurant helpful, everyone working there smiles and greets you very politely. The beach is wide and long not crowded. Shack (Misha) on the beach lovely, especially watching the sun go down. Gardens were huge with plants, trees and flowers everywhere. Would return.

The property is one of the finest in Goa with an excellent beach. The property is comparable with the best seen in Bali. The beach sand is almost like talcum powder - so soft, I have not seen anywhere. The pool is huge by any standards and it snakes around the property. The housekeeping service was slow and the food was nothing to write about. The hotel was full even in April which goes to the credit of Goa and the hotel.

My family and I stayed in Goa in February in several resorts. We had read good reviews about Zuri White Sands on TripAdvisor and decided to stay there for a few nights...what a mistake! The resort smacks of a decrepit Las Vegas hotel: aged, shabby, uncared for and staffed by people who don't seem to like their jobs very much. Oh yes, there are also cockroaches. When we informed reception they didn't seem very surprised. The cleaning staff simply swept the roach out of our room to the hallway immediately outside of our door. Hmmm. There are so many other lovely places to stay in Goa in the same price range that it breaks my heart to imagine anyone using precious holiday time and money ending up at this place. Please, please, please....do yourself a favour and find another place to stay!

superior room with pool view,well worth the little extra.the pool is large enough to find your own private spot.breakfast offered excellent choice for everybody,waiters were attentive and helpful.the service in the room was very good,we never had to ask twice for anything twice and the room were cleaned every day.reception staff were very helpful.the only drawback,on some nights was the sound of music around the grounds(although this is over by 10-30pm)from other hotels viewed in the south this suited us the best,

Room Tip: we chose superior room with pool view and it was suitable for our needs,

My sister in law got married at this resort. The hotel itself is stunning, with plenty of restaurants onsite. Rooms were luxurious and very very clean. The beach itself was a 5 min walk from our room. As we were here for a wedding, so most our time was spent enjoying a 3 day wedding celebrations on the lawns from the beach, views from here were out of this world. This hotel is a fantastic venue for holding a wedding. There were a few issues with room service being far too slow.....but we guessed this is because everything was on Indian and not normal timing. Overall an amazing stay, can't wait to return here again.
