... out & there was quite a long one). Spending tomorrow at the pool so I can pack in the afternoon. Planning to get a taxi to Cavelossim after breakfast on Monday. Found out today that there is a 5 day festival going on, , started Friday in one town up the coast & moving through others to come to Candolim on Monday! Hope we don't have the same problem we had getting here. We are currently 1 hour north of the airport and we are going 1 hour south if ...
... love the rooms, and then Imran calls saying Farhat is really ill. Bummer. Was so looking forward to seeing her. He asks if we need a car to take us to dinner or anywhere. I decide against it as I want to boys to get to bed early. We have to be up early in the morning for our flight to Singapore, and its going to be a really long day. We decide to explore the grounds and the pool while Godwin thinks he'll workout at the gym and we think it would be best to try the ...
... no sun beds, nothing! I took a few snaps and sat back on my bike to head back. I didn't even feel like going to see churches. After crossing the bridge I decided to take a different route following road signs, which brought me on a main road. The idea of following a new path felt good only till I got pulled over by local police and payed a fine for driving a two wheeler without a proper driving licence (my Polish one is just for a car...). The guy showed me some book which ...
... white plaster walls. It could not be more perfect for the 3 couples. Greg and I were elected to take the master suite at the top of the house which includes an outdoor shower, just awesome! The funniest thing about the place though is that it comes which it's own man servant named Mon whom we have nicknamed Kato. He acts as cleaner security guard and washer upper! Very weird to get used to but it was nice today when he offered to do our ...
Today was the first day at camp, the set up is really nice, the rooms are all in a courtyard so you can all see each others rooms, there is a shop were you can buy bottled beers for 50p and a fridge you can use, also there is internet yay! This trip has made me realise how reliant and how much I use technology, it's so bad I constantly want to look at facebook or text people. I think I need to ...

This hotel was beautiful! I spent some time by the pool bar and the rooms were spacious and comfortable. Food was delicious and the location was perfect for the music festival I attended during my stay.

Historical Traveler Reviews Lemon Tree Amarante Beach Resort, Goa Candolim
Pretty hotel. Nice pool, nice kiddie pool
Cabs available right outside, bargain for the price including, total hours and sites/neighborhoods to visit.
Walking distance from Nino's Nook. Nino's Nook is good bodega or small supply store.
Walking distance from Acron Arcade - shopping area & outdoor restaurant. Kareoke on Wednesdays.
Clearly under construction, swim-up bar not open, desk staff can help very little with touring info & planning. They barely had a map of the area.
This is a very new hotel set just back from the main Candolim to Calangute road. It is very well managed by a very enthusiastic team of people. Many are ex Taj group employees.
We were at the Lemontree Amarante recently and enjoyed our stay there. Good value, we took the monsoon package. The hotel is not large but well designed, with nice stained glass windows adorning the façade.
We stayed at the Lemon Tree in the off season. The three night packages were very reasonable. The hotel is nearly new and well maintained. The staff are attentive and well trained. The hotel is clean, the restaurant was good but we only used it for breakfast so can't say it was for other meals. The pool is large but shallow so if you like a pool you can dive in to this is not it. We had the standard room which was nicely decorated, the bed was comfortable. Rooms on the ground floor have a glass door at the back. some don't have keys to open them so you need to check to see if the room you are given has an openable door if you want fresh air. The only flaw we found in the room was the bathtub design whihc allowed water to flow on to the bathroom floor which was a small annoyance.
Lemon tree is value for money but.....
Having stayed four days at Lemon tree in goa , I must say it is value for the money I paid as far as the accomdation is concerned but on the service front, it is slack, the front office has no clue of what is going on most of the time and yes do not forget to ensure you ask for an aircon car for pick up and drop orelse they make such a big deal of this small request that one ends up leaving with a bad taste.
Thank you for your response, based on your feedback we will be giving only air conditioned cars for arrival and departure.
I recently returned from a 9 night stay at the Lemon Tree hotel. I was very pleased with the room, the staff, the amenities, and the location. I would highly recommend it to people who want to retreat to a luxurious little oasis apart from the hustle and bustle of Goa.
Have just returned from a 4 night stay with colleagues to relax, after having been in the Meridien in Pune for work. Unfortunately for us the hotel suffered by comparison.. We all had been 'upgraded' to Garden Rooms, which as far as I can tell were the standard rooms which are on the ground floor surrounding the pretty although rather warm pool.
We had a very enjoyable and memorable 28 night stay here Feb/March 2007. We stayed in a standard room which surrounds the lovely clean and immaculate grounds and pool. The room, having an enormous bed, was immaculately maintained with as you would expect, normal 5* fittings/toiletries, room service, mini bar/fridge DVD & Sat TV. Free bottles of mineral water, tea/coffee on tap. Wifi for the laptop.
Just returned from a 4 night stay and cant praise it enough. Was concerned at first that the property would not be well organised as is fairly new. How wrong I was, the staff were friendly and attentive and determined to make your stay a happy one. The property and its grounds were well maintained also with security 24 hours a day at all exits.
