Spazio Resort – Hotel review, GOA!
Goa in off- season? It was the question everyone was throwing at us when we shared our plans to visit GOA in the first week of August with our then to-be-turning 1 year old toddler. GOA is vibrant from Oct – May and then goes in hibernation mode for 4 months as the rains progresses and leaves zero possibility for Water sports and Shacks to remain open. So the tourist inflows drops by 75%-80%, and only those who want some calm rainy-beachy outing plan then. Well, we were in this category!
We had booked our stay at Spazio Resort situated right between Anjuna and Vagator beach. Based on our stay, our review for the place goes as follows :
Stay Duration : 1-5th August 2016 .
Price Range : INR 2400-2800 (Standard Room), INR 3400-4000 (Deluxe Room)
We were 2 couples , each with 1 year old toddler & so booked 2 standard rooms.
Location : Around 50 Km from Goa airport, it took us 1 hour to reach hotel by cab. It is situated close to Anjuna and Vagator Beach
*Check-in/Checkout : Check-in was smooth and quick, well handled by reception managers at 11pm in night . Checkout had some confusion regarding our request for late checkout but management handled it well.
* Cleanliness : Property is well maintained and was under expansion till sometime back, but we never felt disturbed at any moment.
*Room : Decent sized rooms with the options of Double Bed /2 single Bed With LCD TV, Mini bar, Safe Deposit, Sofa, Balcony with ample space to roam around. Bathroom had Hot/Cold Water option 24*7. Complimentary 2 water bottles were given at time of check-in. Deluxe rooms had an additional Bath tub compared to Standard rooms.
* Pool : It was a small size pool with separate section for kids. Being an off season, there was not much rush but more cleaning was expected
* Food : Breakfast spread was average (Again due to off season). What all it had was : Orange Juice, Bread/Butter/Jam, Cornflakes, Milk/Tea/Coffee, Egg and One Indian/Continental dish of the day. Availability was from 8am-10am. Restro – Bar was Cool and food flavours matched perfectly with our north Indian taste expectations.
* Travel Desk : No separate travel desk but reception helps and guides well in planning local sightseeings. It also arranges for vehicles including Scooty/Car and Airport drop at reasonable rates .
*Internet : Hotel has Free WiFi but signal reception was poor inside the rooms. We had to collect login/password from the reception, which expired in 24 hours (Area of improvement)
*Additional Facility : Small Souvenir Shop, Library, Parking
*Observation : Although Hotel Policy doesn’t allows Stags/bachelors but during our stay, 4-5 bachelors were there (Reason :Off season)
Overall, The stay was pleasant and being off season the place was non-eventful with zero activity but that is true for entire Goa from June till September. We would love to checkout this place again in peak season to tap on the real vibes of the place .
