Historical Traveller Reviews of Phoenix Park Inn Resort Hotel

A decent hotel great location

from ruthfa
Stayed here at the beginning of April. A pretty nice hotel, not fantastic but ticked all the boxes mostly.
The room was nice and large and had fridge with mini bar and tea and coffee making facilities, this was not always restocked and on several occasions had to telephone for some. There were some easy chairs to sit on with a coffee table and loads of channels on the satellite TV to choose from. The room had air conditioning and a fan (a must in April) but it was very noisey (like sleeping with a helicopter above you). Breakfast was included and was OK, the best thing about it was definatley the fresh omlettes they cooked in front of you which were lovely. The rest of the breakfast was not overly appetising but was suficient. The hotel has a bar which was nice in the evenings. The pool was also OK but very very crowded by people who spent their whole day there. So there was some sun bed reservations going on!. We were on the fourth floor of the hotel and it was OK but very tiring in the heat walking up and down all the time.
The best thing about the hotel was the location, near to loads of fantastic restaurants. The beach was a 10 min stroll away though it was very hot and tiring due to the humidity walking anywhere.

Good hotel but make sure you get the right room

from steve5
We have just come back from 2 weeks at the Phoenix Park - our first visit to Goa. We had gone for this hotel because of other positive reviews and overall thought it was better than most of the others we saw. The pool area is nice although too shaded to get much sun. Also, all the sunbeds were gone by 9am - having said that, I can't imagine why you would want to stay at the hotel every day when there are some great beaches around. Breakfast was OK albeit a bit samey - freshly cooked eggs were the best bit. Staff were very friendly and the room boy kept the room clean and tidy as well as shaping the towels into swans etc every day. Anything we asked for was attended to very quickly We didn't eat at the hotel in the evening - those who did seemed happy although there are so many good restaurants in Candolim it seemed a shame to stay in one place. I think we were unlucky with rooms - our first one no 1107 was next to reception and the phone went all night and the desk staff were talking. We asked to move but because the hotel was full we had to wait a few days. We were then moved to 3102 which was certainly quieter although it looked over a rubbish tip. Really you want to push to get a room looking into the pool area, preferably with a balcony. Try specifying that when you book and also ring the hotel a month before you go. Overall a good holiday and the fact that there are so many repeat visitors must say something

Excellent Hotel

from HIta69
We stayed here early December 2006 and despite mixed reviews on here i would recommend this hotel in a heartbeat.

The staff is what makes this place, all very friendly and always around maintaining the place, and making sure everything is spot on.

The pool area is great and the bar here plays great music and serves the best sex on the beach in Goa. The restaurant serves great food and it is only walking or a short cab ride to a host of other bars and restaurants (Sweet Chilli, Souza Lobo, Midas Touch to name a few)

The rooms are fine, but to be honest anyone who spends any length of time in there hotel rooms on holiday in Goa needs there head checking!

You gotta go!!!

from jimandbon
We stayed at Phoenix Park Inn Candolim from31stDec 2006 to 7th Jan 2007. We were so sorry to leave!!! We were a group of 10 people ( 3 families) with 4 teens amongst us. Not only did they love it, they, as well as the 'grown-ups', cant wait to go again!!
The hotel was charming, your rooms were cleaned every day with clean towels left whenever you wanted. You only had to ring Housekeeping for whatever you needed for your room and they were there in 5 minutes. Your breakfast was satisfactory tho there will always be some greedy person who would complain he hadnt enough choice. In our opinion there was plenty of choice.
The hotel staff were a joy. They were so helpful and polite; we took a particular liking to the little security man at the main entrace who always stood up and saluted to greet you with a cheery "good morning" or "good evening"!!
The walk to the beach was not the prettiest one we've seen but again the local people would greet you with a happy smile even tho they probably didnt have a lot to smile about. The Goan people are friendly and helpful and very welcoming.
Go on...................go to Goa and enjoy the experience!!
Jims big group!!


Excellent Holiday

from Pards
We have recently returned from two weeks in Goa and had an excellent time. The hotel was very nice - rooms were clean, pool area very nice and the staff were very very friendly. I had my birthday whilst I was out there and was handed two birthday cards, a bottle of port wine and I also had a chocolate cake made for me which was a nice suprise and very thoughtful.

The location of the hotel was superb. We were spoilt for choice for good quality resturants in Candolim and would recommend Stone House, Casa Sea Shell, Inferno, Sea Shell Inn, Mango Grove & the list goes on!

An average meal each night for 3 courses each and a few beers was between £10-12 pound - unbelievably cheap! The weather in November was fabulous, very hot! Do not book trips with the reps. Find a cab driver, stick with him for two weeks and he will take you to all places of interest for a ridiculously cheap price. These people work for peanuts!!! We have never come across such friendly people. From what we heard, this hotel for a 3 star was one of the best in the area. I could not fault it at all, considering the time you actually spend in it.

Would definatly go back, absolutly loved Goa!!!


from ParadiseChick
Worst hotel ever. The hotel rooms are filthy and dark. The service is far from great. The reception is dingy. The restaurant is dark and far from what is expected when you visit paradise. The hotel is not near the beach and you have to walk through a disgusting area to reach it. The hotel is overlooked by the flatblocks of locals so don't be keen to go out to the pool is your bikini. The pool area however is nice. The hotel pictures are deceptive beacuse they show the one and only angle from which the surroundings cannot be seen.

Nice Hotel

We have just got back from Goa and we stayed at the Phoenix Park the Hotel was better then we expected after reading all the horror stories of other holiday makers about different hotels we were prepared for the worst, but to be fair we were on the ground floor with a large room i did request a ground floor by email as my husband is suffering a knee problem and Ranjeet replied within 24 hours confirming our request. we also took our 10 year old son with us and although no bed was there for him within an hour of our request two porters arrived with a confortable fold up single bed, the staff are great very friendly and helpful i personally do not recommend the food there other guests when we were staying also felt the food was not that good but why eat at the hotel when there is so much on offer only minutes away. All in all we had a fantastic time in Goa and will be going back and i would not hesitate in staying at the Phoenix Park again.

One of the best

from TriuumphNed
The Phoenix Park is one of the best hotels in Candolim. As the other reviews say, it is bright and modern, and the fittings are to a high standard. We stayed at the Highland Beach last year, and I never trusted the wiring in the room. No such problems here.
The staff are very friendly-and a few rupees here and there will get them going out of their way for you.
We gave the pool boy 50 R every now and again and had our sunbeds reserved every day.
Only minor complaint was the breakfast, which was rarely worth getting up for. The coffee was weak as dish water- take your own and use the free kettle.
And the omlette chef needs a few lessons.
Having said that, the lunch was always good. Try the Chicken Tikka or Lamb keema pizzas for a novel combo.
You are within walking distance of all the bars and restaurants of Candolim, so food is never a problem.
We would certainly recommend this hotel and will be returning i'm sure

t be better

from A TripAdvisor Member
Feb 2003: we stayed for two weeks for my Birthday
Im just planning my return visit, we wanted to return last year but a family accident prevented this (he broke his hip!)

We were delighted from start to finish, it was our first trip to India. On reading the guide books, I was quite put off, all the cautions they give, im glad I went

The weather was incredible, the hotel extremely well maintained, the food WELL! if your adventurous absolutely great, both at the hotel and in and around Candolin. Best of all were the people, staff could not have been more helpful.

I was presented with a surprise birthday cake in the room, this was not arranged, the Phoenix staff had worked it out from their records - a very nice touch!

The other nice touch was the room service, each day our towels were left decoratively tied (see pictures).

Thank you

Best in Candolim

from Samiloupepperell
We have stayed in Candolim 5 times now and this is by far the best hotel of all of them, it is owned by a worldwide chain, which helps! The rooms are large, have air-con, ceiling fan, fridge, kettle and cups! (unheard of in 3 star hotels in Goa usually), lovely bathroom and a very large bed! The only downside to this place, was the breakfast service, buffet was fine, but trying to get a coffee was almost impossible!

Top Local Tips for Candolim

Dining Don't commit to one eating place there are lots of very good restaurants.

Dont take the coach transfer If you travel on a package hol, when you arrive in Goa, tell the rep at the airport you are going to make you own way to the hotel. A taxi will cost £8/9 to Candolim and it will save you waiting for ages for everyone to get on the transfer coach.

club 21 The beach shack Club 21 is just brilliant. Great food both day and night with an excellent upstairs platform for a cool breeze. The staff are just the best and play a mean game of cricket as well.Also check out Mai THai in town as you get the same great service there as well - it's the same owner and staff.
