The breakfasts were very good with plenty of selection of both European and Indian food.We did not try any other food from the hotel and have no idea how extensive the menu is as there were never any available to check.
The 2 minus points here which can make or break your holiday, are that the beds in the old part of the hotel are very hard and even when we asked for a 2nd mattress it made very little difference and they were very uncomfortable. The other down side is the bar which is situated in the entrance to the hotel and is very rarely used because of both it's situation and the prices. You expect to pay a little more in a hotel than local bars etc, but the prices were over 50% more. I bought a glass of milk which cost me R120 (nearly

Towels were changed every day, and the staff were more than happy with any extra requirements we had with our youngest (extra towels, sheets, non-spicy food requests! etc)
All in all a wonderful place to stay, would definitly recommend it to others.

Please don't stay at this hotel if you are planning a holiday with your family or looking for a relaxed vacation as it is really pathetic. It is not even a hotel more like a cheap motel.

Rate included breakfast with usual toast or Indian food (eggs included but other things extra). Only ate dinner at hotel two times which was a little more expensive than outside.
Seems like a little silly policy of not allowing food or drink from outside the hotel. Not sure if other hotels do this also. But the prices of beverages (water, soda) at the hotel was not much different than outside and so not a big issue.
Hotel was close to the main road leading to the beach and so is in a good location.
We booked in advance airport transfers in each direction and hotel had someone there at airport to pick us up and take us back on departure.

We had half board, breakfast was toast and eggs, all other items were available but chargeable, (cheap). The free dinner was with a voucher, You could either choose from the India buffet, or with the voucher pick something of the large menu and have 300 Rs off the bill. We did the later most night, and paid less than a pound extra. Food and restaurant were good, but became a little bored with it after two weeks. And food outside the hotel isn't exactly expensive.
Pool and gardens were lovely, we saw quite a few others and we had the best in the area.
Staff were great, very friendly and more than helpful.
Silla is a 2 minute walk to the centre of Calangute, 5 mins to the beach. But very quiet, I think they must have got rid of the packs of dogs.
The entertainment nights (Monday BBQ, Fri Tandoori) were great food, out by the pool, but awful loud music.
All in all a nice spot to stay, good security, Inc safety deposit boxes and 24hr security guard. Clean and friendly.

The hotel was very clean and the staff were exceptional and would do anything to help (like most of the Goans) however the Owners were British and could be slightly off hand if comments were made.
The Breakfasts were very good however the BBQ night was a real let down as the food turned up very late and all but one dish was cold! After that meal we did not eat there, however the location meant that within minutes you could walk to very good restaurants.
We would go back, however having been to Goa 4 times already I think its time for a change!
