Down "Da" Village
Ranked #69 of 69 Hotels in Candolim
Reviewed 10 October 2017

Swimming pool was clean(since not many people prefer to stay at the inhospitable hotel.. lol)
Has a Restaurant .

Cons(O boy are there plenty?)
1. Its literally down the village. Actually it is like a village of mosquitoes in itself. :D
2. Hotelier is a cheat. He denied us a confirmed room(booked from cleartrip).
3. Broken door entrance. We literally never felt the need to have a key since it was well "openable" from the broken glass next to the door.
4. Villa for 5, is not really a villa for 5. Max occupancy as I would say is 4.
5. Rooms are really untidy. They actually kinda suck.

Room Tip: Kindly refrain from booking any room here

We booked the hotel before a month and personally enquired about the confirmation of the booking for a 6 guest room. At the time of arrival we were first treated with a room denial. We then showed our confirmation mail and they were forced to give the room and finally ended up showing a simple untidy below average room for which they charged double of what was given in the site.we even made the receptionist to speak with the customer service centre of the booking site for which he simply lied and just denied us our room with rude curses. The worst experience we have ever had in a hotel. The hotel is just so greedy and gives no consideration to any of the customers or their needs. Never ever recommend it to your friends or family.

This is certainly not the first choice...U have to walk around 1 km from the main road to reach the hotel..lot of other options are available near the main road. Room service is very poor..check in and check out were prompt. rooms are spacious. bathroom is good but water from bathroom enters my room. Pool is not that big but ok. I didn't try the restaurant..But please repair the wooden railings in the top floor...its very risky for the borders...overall gud...

We book this hotel for our Hai trip .. after seeing positive reviews we booked this one...but actual things were totally different what we read in reviews..

For our case we book tow room out of which one room ac was not working...tv were for only name shake..no remotes...
Bathroom doors were broken..take was pasted over broken prt..

Cafeteria provided by hotel is too costly nd that too food is very Worst...

No proper cleaning...no maintenance...no proper response from reception ppl..

Swimming pool is waste and they are not cleaning pool water..

So please don't waste your money N don't spoil your vacation plan...

Highly not recommended..

1) Location- Horrible, u'l feel like uv come to some remote area like village & so as the crowd over there.
2) I havnt got the room for which i had made my booking through goibibo.
3)Right from the owner of the hotel to staff, all r rude.
4)Room - Dirty towels ul not even feel like touching it, not even 1 rug in the room, stained bedsheet, ants were roaming on the bed, no standard at all.
5) I have booked for my 1st anniversary & it got spoiled completely.
6) they dnt even provide 1 bottle of water.
7) I will reccomend goibibi to remove this hotel as all the reviews are horrible.
8) Parking is very congested. very narrow road.
9)Pool is not hygienic, ul nt feel like going inside, surrounded by all cheap crowd.
TIP: Dnt book this hotel as u'l ruin ur holidays completely.

Room Tip: Goa has many other good options. This hotel is pathetic. dnt book only.

One of the worst hotel, swimming pool in actual looks like a tub with 2-3 feet depth. Management is arrogant and they can at any moment deny your booking and shift you in a third class cheap guest house saying that they did not received the email of your booking from travel site. It's also half a Kms inside the road with narrow road. I had to be on road for 4 hours with family because of them. Not advisable for family.
