Shangrila

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in this little oasis for two months.We found it to be perfect and had no complaints.Our every whim was catered to by Clement and his staff, who were most courteous and happy.The food was great and cooked to order by Sandray's own talented Nepalese chef, who also was always happy and smiling. Overall, I would give Sandray a ten out of ten. In fact, we liked it so much, we booked another two months for nexy year before we even left.You must remember of course, you are in India where the electricity and the wifi can be a bit iffy.

Super Place

  • 5 of 5

This super place was exactly what we expected after reading their ads. It’s a small, really quiet resort with a lovely pool area and beautiful gardens all set within a coconut plantation. It not right on the beach but that suits us as you seldom get such quiet and peaceful locations where there are loads of beach comers and shops. Five minutes by cheap taxi and we were there. The staff are great and the food cooked by the in house chef was delicious. We were their for two weeks, our first time in Goa and they really made us feel welcome. The apartments are clean and totally adequate. We look forward to returning next year. Simon and Kate November 2013

Lovely and Private

  • 5 of 5

My measure of good customer service is not if a problem occurs, because problems will often occur, but how the problem is handled when it does occur.

Sandray is a lovely place. Whether or not it is right for everyone will depend on what you are looking for. It is not posh, it is basic in it's amenities but it is very clean, neat and private.

The food is awesome- try the fried rice and the salt and pepper prawns.

I needed some quiet down time and so it was perfect for me. If you want to be in the beach scene all the time though it might not be the right place for you. It is a bit of a walk to the beach but it is a pleasant walk and there are always taxis and a bus.

Cooking facilities are limited but there and there is a small supermarket not far from Sandray.

Sandray itself is in a very friendly neighborhood. I walked further down the dirt road just down from the resort and chatted with residents along the way.

The taxi driver Sandray recommends is a lovely man who took me all over Goa and had tremendous knowledge and insight into the area.

The Internet is there but only marginally so if you need to be on line other than in the most basic way, sort another way to do that.

And returning to my original statement- I did encounter a problem while there but I contacted the owners and got a prompt response in which it was clear that they took things seriously and were going to sort through how to handle it. That is good customer service.

I highly recommend Sandray for those looking for a quiet restful spot with access to the beach.

Owner's Response: Thank you for this review. We were very sorry to hear a problem had arisen during our guest's stay. We are always ready to improve our resort and the services we provide. We are actively looking into the problem that occurred in order to prevent it happening again. Additionally the Internet at the time of the guest's stay was a problem due to events elsewhere in Goa (even our resort manager, Clement had difficulties going about his online business). We are assurred that the Internet problem that arose outside of our resort has now been resolved. Although never perfect or comparable to western standards, the Internet in Goa does work well most of the time but like all things in India, it can be somewhat unreliable. Thank you again.

Oasis of peace and quiet

  • 5 of 5

My third visit to this oasis of peace and quiet and once again I was not disappointed. The staff are so friendly and helpful, nothing being too much for the manager Clement. The apartment was clean and extremely comfortable and the meals cooked to order were superb ! An excellent, peaceful holiday yet again ! We spent a lot of our time at Benaulim beach where the beach shacks, especially Zeebops, serve good food too. Be careful though as some of these beach shacks can be a bit risky as far as hygeine is concerned. Also try the Sal River cruise for a BBQ on the river and a dolphin sight seeing tour on the bay. The staff at Sandray will be happy to arrange such things. Lynda and Derick November 2012

I really enjoyed Sth Goa

  • 5 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 close to the beach which the local rickshaws take you to in 5 mins. 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 Shelish 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 Sandray to know the staff would look after us and we would have a quiet nights sleep.
