Only bad thing is that the reception manager charged extra for dropping, even though it was included in our package, so make sure about the pick up and drop charges before booking. our stay was good, just that the rooms are small. even the food is too costly at the resort restuarents and quantity is very less as well, so its better to eat outside at Rasa or Saffron restuarents. staff were polite, specially Balco staff. pool is good.

I had pleasant stay with my family from 25th Dec to 29th Dec. Though we had some difficulties to locate it initially, once we reached the place we faced no more issues. The hotel staff is very pleasant and helpful. They run a shuttle to Baga which is very convenient. The facilities in the resort are excellent, breakfast menu is pretty good and the restaurant serves nice food.
The staff is very friendly and attentive. They upgraded my room and allowed for an extremely early check-in on arrival. The breakfast buffet was really good with a lot of fresh fruit and an omelette station.
Aside from a hidden 3000 Rps per person New Years eve banquet charge, the hotel was quite nice.
They had in very small print that we would be charged 3000 Rps for a New Years eve event even though we didn't want to attend.
They even discounted it down fron 4000 Rps as they had other gusts complain of the same hidden charges.

Arpora is about 3 km inland from lively Baga Beach on North Goa's coast. Increasingly a tourist destination, these hills offer peaceful surroundings with easy access to the bustling beaches. Fresh-caught local seafood figures prominently in the emerging restaurant scene; the town's seasonal Saturday night flea markets are a popular holdover from the neighborhood's era as a hippie hotspot.
