I booked the hotel without reading the reviews, but when I went through the reviews I was worried as there were too many negative reviews. But the overall experience at Park Calangute was very pleasant. The hotel was clean and gave a quite modern feel. The restaurants are very pleasant and you can spend the whole day there just doing nothing and still enjoy. The hotel is right on the beach !! It still feels a little over-priced, but the stay is worth while!! The internet is free but rooms dont get Wifi properly. The pool area and restaurants get full access to Wifi.
Overall a beautiful short vacation.
1. Very noisy
2. Wifi - Internet slow
3. Not close to beach as advertised.
4. Filthy surrounding
5. The hotel situated in the slum area.
6. Road access to the beach is not well lit, dangerous to walk alone.
7. Beware of stray dogs.
8. Breakfast very dissapointing.
A welcoming atmosphere and great staff. We loved the simple decor of the place and all the facilities like the kids center, the pool etc. The highlight was the beach, while the hotel is not on the beach they would drive you down the short distance. A clean not so crowded beach is a perfect place for sunsets and with life guards on duty you can enjoy the waves too. No shacks on this beach but I rather liked that.
I don't usually write bad reviews but I felt tricked by the annex at Siolim House.The main Siolim House is beautiful old building that has been renovated to a high standard, however the annex is a separate villa (overlooking the main road) 10 minutes away from Siolim House, not an annex as you would expect in the grounds of the main house. This was fairly very basic and in need of maintenance. Our room has broken windows covered with paper, loose floor boards, broken patio table, unloved garden and laundry and rubbish pile on the patio - definitely not worth £75 per night !! You can get this standard for half the amount closer to the beach. The staff were pleasant and helpful but did not have the tools or facilitiy to offer outstanding service. We were able to use the pool at the main house but it was inconvenient
