breakfast is toast, jam juice, tea or coffee (bring your own mug as they have the worlds smallest cups and they are happy for you to do this). any extras are charged but the food is cheap and good. this also applied to the restuarant and the evening specials.
entertainment is basic but good fun. live bands,table magician and kareoke and the indian bingo caller is an act not to be missed! bar prices are some of the cheapest in town.
great location on the baga road. close to...well everywhere really.
best of all, i cant praise the staff enough. always friendly and helpful especially the hosts, bar staff and room boys.
would i go back? for a honeymoon....no way! as a single traveller backpacking or just cheap holidaying...yes definately!

The Hotel is classed as 2 star but could do with some TLC, rooms are cleaned daily,breakfast is tea/coffee/toast.
The Hotel is made up of 3 blocks, we stayed in the block overlooking the pool.
One problem we did come across is that you had to walk around the pool to get to the front accommadation block and the path around it is only narrow with the pool being 7ft deep this could cause problems with young children or if you have had a few!
All in all had a good holiday but will stay some where differant next year.

The rooms were basic, like most in India but were clean and simply furnished including a/c.
The room was cleaned daily with fresh towels and sheets.
The hotel has an excellent pool and is ideal for groups or families that don't want an overcrowed hotel as it was mostly quiet.
Also it's very close in location to town which was useful.
The staff were an assest to the hotel, warm, friendly and really made our holiday special.
The food at the hotel is superb and we ate there many nights and struggled to find meals of the same standard in the town.
All in all a very good hotel, with a great service and after staying in several in Jaipur, Delhi and Agra it was a treat to return to. I'd go again.

Staff were very unfriendly. We only had the misfortune to stay there as the Osborne was fully booked but we have booked to go back to the Osborne this year which will be the 7th time we will have stayed there. Take my advice do not think of going to the Ticlo. They say in the brochure it has been completely refurbished. What they mean is the outside was painted.
Would we go back again ? No chance.

Thankfully we were only here for 4 days before staying with family, a fortnight here would have been a bit dismal.
The cleanliness was average for a 2 star hotel. Sheets and towels were changed regularly but it had the dinginess that is a 2 star hotel. Our bedroom didn't have curtains although the window glass was frosted. But this was a pain at night as we were facing the path that leads to other rooms which were lit at night by fluorescent lights which shone into the room. We sellotaped my sarong to the window to act as a curtain and make the room darker at night.
We had to defrost the fridge when we arrived as we like to make our own ice and the icebox in the fridge was beyond solid.
Breakfast was tea, coffee, juice and toast. There were extras such as eggs but these were not part of the package and were charged for. With one breakfast exception, we didn't eat at the hotel at all.
The location is good as it is close the the Calangute / Baga road junction so it's very central and only a 10 minute walk to the beach. As a base it's good as long as you don't expect much more than a bed to sleep in.

They promptly moved us to a different, lovely hotel. Would we go back to Goa? Having stayed at our second hotel, yes we would.
