This is NOT a 3 STAR property with third poor service.

First of all, double check the reviews before booking at this place. When I booked I managed to read only a few good reviews about this place. I wish I had dug a little more deeper.
The hotel property is been beautifully designed and conceived by it's previous owner who has sold it to Toshali group (Orissa based owners). However, the in-room amenities are way below average of what one would expect for a 3 star grade resort.
Though the property is been managed well, the owner if been extremely poor in service provision. Be it the kitchen or the overall offering of other services.
During peak season, if you are charged dearly at the tune of 6K per night, then the least that you are expecting that the SO CALLED '3 Star' property will provide a lavish bath room amenities. You are expecting that the spread of breakfast won't be a frugal single dish or two in starters, main course and desserts, each. You expect it to be a lavish one like it's contemporaries like the Resort Terra Paraiso, Calangute, or Santana Beach resort, Candolim, or many others.
The managers did not seem to care if one pointed out things which are basic to hospitality. Felt as if they were financially in capable of managing peak season hospitality.
Would strongly recommend other resorts against "Toshali- The Goan Village'. Its new name,
Horrible, low quality hotel

First of all, it is not a resort, neither it is comparable to the photos they have given in the website. It is just another road side hotel in a congested market area. Moreover, there were security issues for a family. Never visit this property with your family. Pathetic will be an understatement to describe this property.They don't even have a proper reception desk. The reception consists of some broken furniture and a desk like what you might have seen in a grocery shop. Rooms are pathetic, broken old furniture, stuffy. The swimming pool is dirty and not usable and the pool side chairs that you see in the pictures are also old and dirty. I do not know on what basis people are saying it is good, have you visited it in recent time. And it is not even that economical, with slightly more price you will get a nice actual resort. Now, let me come to the security issues. We reached the hotel in the night of 10 Nov, 2017 and had a horrific experience. People were drinking and smoking openly with loud music (I am not sure if that can be called music). The entire space was filled with smell of alcohol and smoke, added to it the vulgar looks that all those drunkards were giving to my wife. No decency, no respect. Our holiday was almost killed if only we were not lucky enough to get a good resort almost immediately. We checked out right in the next morning after some how spending the night there. Never ever book this hotel for a family holiday.

The hotel is really good. The hotel is located adjacent to Candolim Beach. We stayed here from 15.11.17 to 19.11.17. The rooms are good. We booked A/C Deluxe Suite. The behavior of the staffs will create an impression in your mind. The staffs are so courteous and prompt in there services. Specially the restaurant service, the staffs of the restaurant are always in effort how to serve better to there guests. We strongly recommend this hotel to stay while visiting North Goa.

The hotel is very clean. The staff is polite and helpful. Location is close to Candolim beach, approx. 800m. The site seeing was a good experience. The AC bus driver was good and his tips helped us to manage our time at each site. The cruise ride was too good, and most enjoying in the whole trip. The food is good, but feels repetitive after 2 days. The external ambience of the hotel is too good. But the rooms need renovation . The room furniture badly needs maintenance, at least painting. Most of the time is spend in site seeing, so room ambience may not bother some ppl. Over all it was a good experience
