Positive Reviews

Good hotel and rooms

Sonesta Inns provides a variety of comfortable accommodation including luxury suites and three bedroom villas. Rooms are spacious, comfortably furnished with good amenities and have balconies. Beds are comfortable and showers are powerful. The pool area is very nice with plenty of sun loungers and a safe kiddie pool, and the spa services are good too, said guests.

Good location

The hotel is just a few minutes from a good sandy beach which is accessible via the rear of the hotel. There are plenty of bars and restaurant shacks offering cheap food on the beach and on the main street of Candolim.  Car/bike rental is available close by.

Good service

The staff is friendly and helpful, felt most guests. Rooms are serviced everyday and the pool area is kept nice and clean too. Room service and service by the pool is available. The food served also receives appreciative comments. Breakfast includes English and Indian options.

Negative Reviews

Chargeable Wi-Fi, Jacuzzi

Wi-Fi is not free at the Sonesta Inns which some guests did not like. Use of the Jacuzzi next to the children's pool is also chargeable.

Food issues

Some guests felt that the food served was not very representative of the local Goan fare. A few guests also thought that the breakfast was boring and repetitive.

Some other niggles

Sometimes the hotel staff tries to get guests to make choices in favour of taxis rather than buses. One guest also said that the staff forgot to send a wakeup call. Rooms are not noise proof which some guests found to be bothersome.
