... I didn’t go in since two tourists are the ones who found the boy right near the shore. For all the hours of extensive rescue searching earlier in the day, the man’s body just peacefully drifted to shallow water 60 yards away from where he disappeared. Watching his stiff body being dragged in then quickly surrounded by Indians, both curious and paying their respects, then being carried away on ...
... that squiggle that looks like a row of wheelchairs is our destination.
We notified our reserved hotel by text message that we were on our way and we'd be arriving late afternoon.
After 65 km, as we approached Sirsi, the landscape became more hilly and forested.
Here we came upon a field with pretty shabby looking covered wagons. It reminded us of cover wagons in the old ‘Westerns’, American movies ...
... and Tessa from Holland, we had met them in Kochi the first time we were there and they stayed at The Nest , it’s a small world.
The people that are here for the season have been coming here for years and know everyone , its good to get restaurant recommendations and local tips but I'm not sure I could stay in one place for such a long time though. There is plenty to do if you want to do it , Yoga, cycling,trips to waterfalls , boat trips etc. I haven't felt ...
... waiting later we got a bus! It was a very small bus with seats not quite big enough to fit two people. Our luggage had to go in a locker on the back of the bus that had no lock so it was quite nerve wracking when we stopped to pick up more people. Cat and I were frantically scanning each side to ensure that our bags weren't been taken away! We also had a good giggle when the guy next to Cat started nodding off. He was doing the whole nodding ...

We forgot all the troubles that we have gone through the previous night and felt very happy that we made it to Badami.Around 4 pm we started our journey to Hampi ...
Historical Traveler Reviews Radisson White Sands Resort Goa Salcette
First of all under no circumstances go for the all inclusive option, unless you want to be shackled to the buffet for breakast, lunch and dinner. We went with First Choice, and in the brochure it said we would have $14 each for lunch and dinner to put towards the bill in the a la carte restaurant if we didn't want to eat at the buffet. When we got to the hotel we were told that this option had gone a year a go but nobody bothered to tell first choice.
The hotel is really nice, great pool and location. The staff are friendly and are very accommodating. The rooms are lovely.
We only ate breakfast at the hotel which is buffet style. The drinks and food are expensive, but there are beach shacks and restaurants (about 7) around the corner, so you dont need to get a taxi if you dont want to.
I do prefer the south and Varca inparticular. I ahve stayed in the north. Would definately stay at this hotel again.
We stayed at this hotel for a week and I cannot fault the service. The hotel was full but because it was so big, we hardly noticed it at all. staff were extremely attentive.
Not to be missed-Radisson
This was my first visit to Goa and having researched hotels and locations I chose the Radisson White Sands. The staff were exceptional-so friendly and helpful. All requests were completed with a smile, even clearing the insects out of our room! Great food was served, good value and quality. It was a pleasure to return to this relaxing and clean hotel after a day of sight seeing. The Ayurvedic full body massage is not to be missed! I would certainly recommend the Radisson without hesitation.
I'm very particularly about where I stay. I did a lot of research before I booked Radisson white sands in Goa.
I managed to pick up a great monsoon package/offer in August 2005. We also upgrade to a super deluxe room.
Rooms are very big, enough to accommodate 4 persons easily.
Overall the complex is very good and the service is excellent, pool is huge
I don't have anything bad to say about this resort.
I would certainly go back to this resort again.
The hotel was well spread out with great rooms with all amenities. The food was excellent. Lots of activities. Will definately be going back.
The beach is very clean and far away from the more popular beaches of Goa. Lots of privacy.
Best in Goa so far
I have been travelling to Goa for many years. Great service in this hotel and v.v.friendly staff. Must dine at the Seafood Beach reataurant! Great pool and endless white sands beach - not crowded.
great place, good food, warm service, beautiful hotel, lots of entertainment for the whole family, affordable rates! couldn't ask for more!
The Radisson is a decent hotel, but they could do a lot to make it a great hotel. The good:
Excellent resort - good food (no ill effects), lovely people, nice climate. Resort was exceptionally clean and had everything you could wish for. Will definitely be going back here!
