Preetam D. Families - 11/11/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

The positives: 1. Stayed at elegance suite, well planned 2. Attentive house keeping , restaurant staff 3. Good breakfast spread 4. Greenery around the pool helped in providing shade at a major section 5. Quiet location, not too far from main roads and various restaurants, beach at walking distance Negatives: 1. Doesn’t have a overall 5 star property feel, more like a 3-4 star 2. Approach road small to the hotel from the road 3. Hotel signage at road entrance should be bigger 4. Didn’t get the relevant discount for 3rd night @50% rate inspite of having the relevant vouchers since i was told it had to be told at the time of reservation

Adventure50483230142 15/09/2021 TripAdvisor review

The service is certainly excellent and the people make the difference. However the cleanliness of the floors and maintenance in general had a lot to be desired for me personally. Also felt the discipline of the guests around the buffet was not in keeping with COVID protocol and no one from the staff was doing anything to implement basic discipline. Not what one expects of a French chain.

Dear Adventure, Thank you for your review. Your compliments about the service delight me and it gives me great pleasure to share it with the team. We value the feedback of our guests, as often times it may pinpoint areas needed focus and attention/. We do hope that you will come back and stay with us again next time you are in Goa. Do let us known for any further attention. Regards Ranju Singh

it would have been a average stay but made very good and memorable at the end.

51ishpreets 04/09/2021 TripAdvisor review

Its a good property but does not qualify to be in resort category because of the space constraint. All credit goes to Yogen (duty manager) who tried to make our stay comfortable. She was very flexible and helped us in upgrading our room as per our requirement and our stay ended on a Happy Note.. Staff was decent but there is always scope of improvement if we compare with the services offered by other resorts. May be this comparison is coming because we opted for Taj exotica in South Goa and then came to Novotel for North Goa stay. One of the thing, we are very unhappy about is the rates charged to us. We did direct deal with Novotel on email but rates given to us were very high as compared to what was available online on all the travel websites. This was very disappointing. Second thing, rooms given to us initially had lot of smell (Cigratte Smoke). Since we were travelling with kids, it was very difficult to stay in those room. Even though we were transferred to other room and later upgraded. But it should have been avoided at the first instance. One more thing, I would like to share is that the services at the buffet breakfast was minimal. There were no proper cutlery at the table and lack of adequate staff to serve the guests.7:30 to 11:00am was very chaotic time at the restaurant. It could have been well managed with adequate staff.

Dear 51ishpreets, Thank you for your review. We value the feedback of our guests, as often times it may pinpoint areas needed focus and attention. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to turnaround your experience and for allowing us to restore your faith in the quality of our service that we pride ourselves on delivering. Do let us know for any further assistance. Regards, Ranju Singh

Great location, really pleasant and clean rooms, but the thing that makes this such a good place to stay are the staff. All of the people are incredibly helpful and generous with their time and advice.

Dear Vikas, We are so delighted to read that your experience has reached all of your expectations! On behalf of the whole team and management, thank you for your great review. We look forward to your next visit. Regards Ranju Singh
