Wonderfull stay, but limited service.
on Aug 9, 2017
The 5* rating is for room Hotel location, ambiance & cleanliness. Also the size of rooms is too good huge space with all the amenities listed.
Me & my wife were there in month of April 2017, The hotel owner & other staff really good and helpful.
The apartment we stayed was huge with comfortable couch, bed, kitchen, tea maker, over refrigerator, Bathrooms with bath tub and hot & clod running water and other facilities. As it was off season they had had they kitchen out of operation, but morning breakfast they use to get from outside was also tasty.
As you move out of hotels there are many options for restaurants & bars near buy.
Also the candolim beach was just a walk away

Sonia's Paradise - Excelent Guesthouse
on Feb 22, 2017
During the last days (11 nights) of our stay in Candolim, we had a little apartment in Sonika’s Paradise. The room was big with a little kitchenette and a terrace. The bathroom was OK and we had always hot water (boiling !).
The guesthouse is situated a little away from the main road, but this results in very quiet nights.
It’s only a 10 min walk to the beach.
We would certainly come back !
Awesome rooms with limited service
on Dec 5, 2016
I with my wife stayed here for 3 nights during last week of Nov 2016.
To start with, the room, it was quite big for two people, with a sofa set, a center table, a cupboard, TV unit, kitchen top racks and obliviously a king size bed. With this furniture around room looks complete and finely tuned. AC was in perfect condition so do TV. Although they could have made few more English channels available.
The location of the accommodation is very nice, not far away from the main road and many restaurants are near by. The best ones are "Fisherman's cove" and "The Jazz". Also beach is at walkable distance. A small area inside the premises to stroll around could have been an add on.
Now coming to the service, as their display board says they have service apartments, so it is expected to have some sort of service like as simple as a tea/coffee in the room or offer breakfast to the guest. But rooms were cleaned on the request but tea cups were not cleaned for the rest of the stay.
Overall very satisfactory stay, definitely recommended to travelers for couple of nights.
