Well my worries proved to be wrong,
1)Room were clean and it was cleaned everyday.
2)Find food on par with other hotels.
3)location is good, clean and calm
4)Find hotel staff very co-operative, and they were ready to offer help
If i happen to visit goa again...for sure i will consider to stay in this hotel

The room was better than last time but still poor. Stairways were dirty and more than twice saw plates with half eaten food left out for more than 24 hrs. The bar staff etc are great - reception doesn't seem
to understand anything and I was amazed their English was so poor compared to bar staff etc. or were they just pretending?
we met two couples on the beach who had stayed there last year separately - and both had money and items taken on the last day.
By this time we thought we had a magical bedroom - my specs disappeared to return 3 days later on pillow
case - and my husband's mobile disappeared and reappeared within 24 hrs - in a different place - we at that time thought we had forgotten where it was put. However on the last night i noticed that my passport holder in drawer had been opened - as a luggage ticket kept in it was on the floor.
In the morning the phone had gone again - as we were
leaving we couldn't report it to the police and the management were not interested. Aalso and bizarre - my friends had done a birthday thing for me - including a pair of pink fairy wings - these also disappeared on the last day.
Been going to Goa for years never had anything stolen
couldn't find a rep at airport.
Pool is still nice - but I wouldn't ever go back to this hotel. Shame as it could be so nice - it needs a good shake. They seem to be going towards the Indian market
which is no problem except semi-naked men in underpants on the stair ways. Interesting

Breakfast ok with enough choice.
Hotel location is good although we found hiring a scooter a real bonus to travel around Goa, all Goans were friendly and helpful.
Entertainment at the hotel was not the best but we would certainly stay there again.

I strongly suggest everyone not to stay in Alor grande, Candolim in goa.
We had taken a package to stay there for 2 nights, and the package had included pick up and drop to the airport/station, wine, bed coffee etc etc.
Please do not take this package as you will not get any of the above mentioned unless and until u probe in and ask for, thts too at the cost of their convience and not your convience. The pick up and drop to the station is fixed irrespective of your train/bus /flight timings, which made us waste 4 hrs .
There was no wine bottle kept in the room. Room is barely clean, not worth of the money we paid for.
After asking them for 5-6 times, we got the wine bottle.
The manager is so rude, and he spoke to us as though he is doing us a favour by giving us a drop to the station.
The receptionist mis-guided us saying that there are no buses to the candolim after 7pm, but there are buses till 8:30 PM from panaji.
His intention was to get a taxi for us from panaji.
People are not at all friendly in the hotel.
Most important of all is this hotel is not for family or couples . Its like a market wen u enter this place.
Overall, I strongly suggest not to waste your money on this hotel.

sun beds are very uncomfortable, but who goes to india to sit around the hotel pool??? There were alot of indians in the hotel, due to it being Dwali. The hotel staff were really friendly and couldnt do enough for you, unfortunatley the management were not so friendly. The breakfast was eggs done any way you requested and toast. The ceiling fans in the hotel were adequate as they wanted

Good points: swimming pool has separate child's section and was clean with life guard and towels.
Food: don't normally eat in hotels but as had 4 year old with us sometimes easier - had a couple of meals. Goan food excellent - Indian good - steak night surprisingly excellent. Breakfast normal Goan stuff but self service so no long wait.
Staff in general very friendly.
Bad points: Only pool and downstairs refurbished - general
stairways and rooms in dire need of maintenance and redecoration - a lot of people complaining - when we did complain we were offered other rooms - as the rooms were in a good spot we asked for the problems to be sorted -which they were eventually. Hotel for some reason attracts some very drunk people of all nationalities which caused problems - also accommodates conference accommodation which really doesn't mix with holiday makers in swim wear!
A real shame as this could be a top hotel.
The rooms are really big. It was very hot when we were there but only needed to use fan - although had a/c option.
Also encountered more mozzies than usual.
Would not use again unless rooms refurbished.
