As we found staying in dormitory inconvenient, we all decided to check out of the hotel where we stayed and booked a two-star budget property, Alor Holiday Resort Goa at Calangute. It is only 500 meters from the famous Calangute beach, and 18 km from the railway station. I liked the hotel and it was the best way to unwind myself after days of budgeting and calculations.
The room we booked was very spacious and comfortable with all the necessary facilities like intercom, cable television and a large cupboard to keep your things. There is a balcony for the rooms, from where you get a fantastic view of coconut trees and paddy fields and fresh air. The attached bathroom was neat and provided with toiletries and hot/cold running water.
After getting refreshed we went to have a look around the hotel. It had a swimming pool were we saw many people swimming. Some were sitting by the side of the swimming pool drinking cool drinks and talking. It also had conference rooms and meeting rooms. Facilities for indoor games like table tennis, chess, carom board etc were provided for the customers.
I was attracted by the ayurvedic massage center and made plans to go for a massage session when I got time. There was also a fitness center equipped with many modern types of equipment. Being crazy about food and cuisine we went in search of the restaurant and found Paguer, the in-house restaurant. We went inside and saw that it is open on one side and overlooks the swimming pool, offering you a fantastic view outside. The food served was very tasty and we had a fantastic time at the restaurant.
The hotel also arranged a number of cultural programs such as folk dances, theme evenings with live band, and so on. Near the restaurant is the Tavern bar, which we planned to visit in the evening. Alor Holiday Resort Goa offers all the facilities at reasonable prices and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the hotel. The hotel is the perfect place to enjoy with friends, go trekking and camping.
