The hotel is tired. The staff are friendly and so very helpful. A very comfortable place - rooms are big with high ceilings. Bedding needs replacing and the hotel needs to be refurbished but would still stay again because of the family atmosphere.

I have just returned from a week stay and found the hotel very good value for money. Although I was a single traveller my room had lots of room with balcony and king size bed which was absolutely so comfortable and proper pillows. Very clean, bedding and towels changed daily. The room also had tv fridge safe and kettle. The staff were great from reception to waiting staff. Breakfast was adequate with unlimited tea and toast and eggs omelette tomato etc. A couple of small things stopping me from rating 5 stars are the WiFi is very very slow in reception pool areas and unable to get in the room at all and also if like a long hot shower the hot water only lasts a few minutes then goes to luke warm as it runs on a guiser. These didn’t spoil my holiday in any way and would certainly return to this hotel if in Candolim again.

Small boutique hotel located down a lane off the busy main road. We had a junior suite with balcony overlooking the front of the hotel. Bathroom could do with refurbishment. Breakfast was a bit limited : eggs any way with toast and tea/coffee. Staff are lovely and very helpful. Would certainly return.

We arrived 5Jan 18 with TUI but got a taxi from the airport, when we got to the hotel our room wasn’t ready. The reception staff where lovely, very welcoming and asked if we’d like to have breakfast , we had coffee and then waited for our room as I wasn’t feeling to good. We didn’t wait to long & where taken to our room 105 that overlooked the back of the hotel. Very quiet and there is a path to a little village. We only had three breakfast in two weeks ( just because we don’t do breakfast) What we had was lovely. The room was a very generous size with a massive bed, kettle, fridge & safe at no extra cost. I requested a hairdryer and in no time it was there . The lads in the bar where lovely also and once they got the just that my husband actually liked COLD beer , they stocked the fridge up for our return every night. We have been going to Goa for that last few years and we think we have finally found a hotel we like with staff we like. Even the guards where lovely. This hotel is a good 30 minute walk to the shack we use on the beach but it’s well worth the walk , the hotel is off the main road , so if you want hassle & bustle you can go out and get it. Definitely will return to this lovely little hotel, just hope that when they expand from 20 rooms to 60 it don’t spoil the atmosphere. We used the laundry service & where very pleased. Only one complaint & that was our very last night I didn’t get one bit of sleep as the room next door where having a party. Music, dragging chairs along to floor, noise, shouting , banging of feet on the floor, doors opening & banging door closed not closed quietly. Very disrespectful guests. The room boys appeared from no where at 5 in the morning to help us if needed with our cases up the road . We would definitely look into going back here.

Stayed here for 2 weeks over the Christmas period. Staff were excellent, could not do enough for you. Shame that the restaurant was not open at the time. Would like to have known what that was like. The food that we did have there was very nice.Lovely sized room. We had 207 overlooking the pool. Top end of the pool could do with a bit of maintenance,some of the tiles were not in the best condition. Would highly recommend though.

We paid 12k for 2 nights. Although it's in Candolim, the entrance is shady. We did not get parking even though we requested the same while booking. So had to park the car outside. There were cockroaches in the room. We got 2 small water bottles on arrival and after that water bottle was charged. Irrespective the number of days we stayed. Breakfast was bread and egg and utthapam. That's all. Coffee was also served for breakfast but was poor. The pool was too much water. Leisure swimming was difficult for a 5ft 3 inch person. Check out was at 11. We checked out at 11:30 and the AC was remotely switched off like a cheap hotel. Not going back again.

Lovely hotel, welcoming, friendly and helpful staff. We had a big room which was lovely with comfortable beds, very clean and nice sunny balcony. The swimming caught the sun most of the day and was cleaned every morning. The area around the pool was continually keep tidy due to falling leaves. Very comfortable sun beds with large towels available. Breakfast was either an Indian option. cornflakes, toast and eggs any way you want them. Also juice, tea and coffee. Not many people seemed to eat in the evenings, although we did a couple of times, the food was good. One negative was there is a large menu but we were told a few times that things were not available even down to ice cream! The hotel is near a busy road but we were never disturbed by road noise. There were quite a lot of Indian guests who were lovely and were happy to chat however some did not seem to consider other guests who may be trying to sleep at night. Overall very good and we would be happy to return Thank you

This property is located very close to Candolim beach and is actually "hidden away' in a small by-lane. Our friends had reached a day before us and we reached early in the morning on the following day. There was no body at the front desk and the executive was fast asleep in a tiny room behind the front office. We came back a few hours later to check in. Check in was convenient and didn't take long. The rooms were nice and spacious and some of the rooms had Jacuzzi in the bathroom. Service was OK. Breakfast was very basic. The pool was very small. Overall it was an OK sort of a place. Silver Sands Serenity is a better property in all regards and is right next door.

Hi, If you are looking for a hotel in candolim area, Then you can go ahead with Silver sand hideaway, We recently stayed there for 4 days and found this hotel meeting all the criteria's..The rooms are so spacious and good in itself..They have all the facilities available in the room..The staff is also helpful and supportive..The food is also of good quality and within reasonable prices..Although swimming pool is not that big but its ok.. special thanks to Mr. Ashim in reception for taking food care of us..I would definitely recommend you to go for this hotel without thinking much, all major beaches within reach from the place..

We stayed here as 2 couples - the hotel itself and especially the pool area is in need of a little refurbishment but was kept spotlessly clean. Atmosphere in the hotel was fabulous, both in terms of staff and between guests, many of whom are repeat visitors. Breakfast is limited to eggs and toast or Indian with some fruit and cereal available. The place is so cheap you can just buy additional cereal and jam etc from local supermarket to supplement that provided. Kumar manages breakfast and it can get shambolic on his day off with plates being passed around by guests to deliver the right order to the right person - to be honest this just adds to the whole ambience of the place. If you're looking for the polished finish of a 5 star do not book this place. But if quirky camaraderie is your thing you will love it. Close to town. Easy 10 mins walk to beach (use the short cut next to the football field). Don't book taxi from the hotel - walk around the corner and use one of the local guys - much cheaper. We loved it. Second visit to Goa but first to this hotel and we are returning to this place again in January next year.
