A SUPER PLACE

  • 5 out of 5
I stayed for the second time in May 2009 with my two sons and once again I can only say what a super place sandray is. Staff are great, foods great, accommodation is great and the walk down to the beach is pleasant and interesting through the back lanes to Benaulim beach or 5 minutes by taxi. Sandray is pleasant enough just to spend the day there as they have only 5 apartments and a decent sized swimming pool and jacuzzi with good food whenever you need it. Nearby shops are interesting if you want to go for a stroll. We'll be back without a doubt. Well done Clement and everyone. Ed and Co

A NICE PLACE IN SOUTH GOA

  • 5 out of 5
If you want peace and tranquillity away from the tourest meccas of Goa then Sandray is the place to go. Its small and compact but not restrictive as only five apartments are available to fill and so the place never gets overcrowded. The staff are brilliant ! especially Clement the manager who bends over backwards to be helpful. Rooms are cleaned dailoy and are very spacious. They have their own small restaurant and the food is great but you can eat in your apartment if you prefer. Then beach is a few minutes away by taxi and what a beach !! It goes on for ever and somedays theres very few tourists to be seen. Weve holidayed before in north Goa but give us south Goa from now on. Thank you for an excellent holliday Trev and Mary

BONDLA VILLA

  • 5 out of 5
We have just returned from an excellent stay at Bondla Villa. The property lived up to the description - a small, clean, well-apportioned villa with a roof garden and access to a good size swimming pool. For the first week we had the whole property to ourselves and, for the second week, only one of the other suites was occupied. Consequently, we had a very peaceful and relaxing time. If all the 5 properties had been occupied, we might not have experienced such relaxation, but that's the luck of the draw! All the staff were friendly, helpful and efficient and the villa was thoroughly cleaned each morning.
We only had one evening meal at Sandray, because we prefer to eat a local restaurants. (Particularly recommended are Joecons, Martin's Corner and Johncey's and Coco's on Benaulim Beach. Sea Waves on Betalbatim beach was another good choice. We only had one meal on Colva beach, which proved very disappinting - perhaps we were unlucky). We frequently had breakfast and/or lunch at Sandray, which were more than acceptable, though we noted a continuing lack of prawns at lunchtime, which was a shame.
Our transport needs were mainly met by Victor, who was always prompt and reliable and cheaper than the other driver we sometimes used.
Set against all these positives, we only have 2 critical suggestions to make. Firstly, we had to ask for hot water when we needed it. It was always provided promptly, but I think that, at a 'Luxury' resort, hot water should always be available 'on tap'. I also feel that the Resort should be a bit more upfront about the rate of Indian Government tax added to the bill at check-in. Perhaps, I should have looked it up beforehand, but I was very surprised that, although we were warned that we would have to pay the tax, it currently stands at 12.5%. This added 5000 rupees (£70) to our overall bill and meant that I had to use my credit card to pay the balance at check-in, thus adding a further 2% to our bill. It would be an easy matter to add a phrase such as 'Indian government tax currently at 12.5%' on joining instructions, so that visitors can plan their budgets more effectively.
Notwithstanding these comments, I would like to say that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Bondla Villa. We would be more than happy to return and to recommend it to friends and family.
Thank you.

A RELAXING VENU

  • 5 out of 5
This was my second visit to Sandray Resort. the first for my husband. Once again we were not disappointed. The immaculate air conditioned apartment, which was cleaned every day catered for all our needs. The well stocked fridge was replenished every day.
In the tropical garden the pool and jacuzzi offered a welcome retreat from the heat of the day. Clement and his staff were helpful, attentive, polite and discreet. Often going well beyond our expectations. The food was excellent. We only ate out of the resort once. Our only regret was having to go home before trying everything on the menu.
The resort is situated in a quiet residential area. no loud music or rowdy holiday makers. We can't wait to stay again.

HOLIDAY HAVEN

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed at the Sandray for three weeks in July 2010 to just relax and chill. We knew it was the monsoon but had been told people still holiday in Goa during the monsoon as it’s so different and interesting. And at such cheap prices compared to Europe why not? £66 for one week for the apartment - not per person! How do they do it? A complete and utter bargain!!
It may have been the monsoon season, but we’ve had plenty of sunshine holidays in the past so we were not going for the sun. Actually it proved to be everything we had been advised about – interesting and relaxing. This is the only place ever where I can really say that when I entered it matched the photos on the website exactly, and I mean exactly!! I felt as if I knew the place already. The apartment was clean and tidy, functional and practical with everything we required. Total value for money!!!
Even the staff are just right – polite, respectful, helpful and always available. Nothing was too much for them. This place really is a spot of tranquillity and delight.
We ate at the resort most days as the food was delicious and very reasonably priced, again by European standards very cheap! I would certainly recommend the Sandray at any time of year. What you see is exactly what you get and superb value!!!!! Joe and Sandra

A QUIET OASIS WITH YOUR OWN PRIVATE ROOF TERRACE

  • 5 out of 5
The description given by the owners of this small private hotel is exactly what you find on arrival. The south of Goa is the lesser cultivated area so it gives you the opportunity to see it before the big hotels arrive and take over the lovely coastline and beaches.

We opted for the villa as it gives a greater amount of privacy whilst sunbathing but the self contained flats were just as well kitted and comfortable. The Resort is located in a quiet residential area about 25 min flat walk to the beach although the local rickshaws make the journey in 5 mins which was a nice and cheap option.
The pool was lovely 9/10 strokes in length and as there are only 5 units in the entire place you can always find a time to use it on your own.
If you insist on self catering there are the basic kitchen facilities but we were happy to let Raju the chef take the strain and he did not disappoint, everything is cooked fresh at the time of ordering and if you make a special fish dish request he'll be sure that the fish is purchased only an hour or so before cooking. If you ask nicely he'll let you watch him cook and give a good running commentary. Most importantly the kitchen runs on Western standards with use of purified water.
the villa and apartments are cleaned thoroughly each day and if you needed something you only had to ask.The staff are energetic and friendly so nothing is a too much trouble . A small medical problem was resolved by a quick trip to the local Dr within half an hour of making the request, the manager even drove us there and back.

This property is best suited to those travellers who want to be away from the madding crowd but with easy accessibility to the bars restaurants and beaches. The only noise you will hear at night will be the neighbouring farm animals and the early morning birds.
We personally loved that fact that Colva Beach is used more by Indian visitors than Europeans. It is a long stretch of sandy beach bordered by palm trees with beach shacks for drinks and food , the hawkers are not allowed onto the beach until after sundown so you do not get pestered repeatedly , as on other nearby beaches.
It was our first visit to India and we enjoyed the experience hugely but at the end of a long day in the sunshine it was lovely to come back to the Sandry to know the staff would look after us and we would have a quiet nights sleep.
