“Cant Compare it to Leela or Park Hyatt”
Reviewed 28 February 2012

This time i went to Palolem and went to The Lalit for dinner and to see the property. Have stayed at Leela and Park Hyatt Before and they are much better than Lalit from the feel of a luxury hotel. THe Lalit needs some good desginer to convert the huge property into a modern day luxury resort.The lalit had one beach restaurant which was closed for public as they were having a private wedding function there. THe other restaurant was their cafe where i had the buffett. Unfortunately, it was not a good spread either. The service was good, but overall the hotel is no where near Leela / Park Hyatt.

Thank you again to the staff at the Lalit..The food was fabulous the grounds beautiful..... the beds were to die for..how squishy can one get!!...... there was no noise..any of my moans ...all be them small.. were dealt with immediately with good grace and humour..the home made biscuits ( served to me in the middle of the night with horlicks!) were lovely..Each time we stayed there... 10 days.. in the four weeks we had in Goa we were treated so very very well..regardless of the fact that they had weddings and conferences on..we never felt left behind.. the staff worked so very hard and therefore the management must be doing the same to support them...I loved it and we will be returning next year to stay there for 3 weeks....

This is a fantastic property, great (nearly private) beach, golf course (sadly out of action due to the purchase of grass that refuses to grow in Goa), large rooms, and privacy. It's off the beaten track and calm. The biggest problem this hotel faces however is a general incompetence and conartistry at play amongst its staff.
On paper the resort is perfect, and the infrastructure is all there. But its the kind of place that pushes two singles together to make a double (not even placing double sheets on them though, literally pushing two beds next to each other), offers sea rooms on a ground floor that have no chance of ever seeing water, and supplies activities at a premium but delivers the cheapest possible. If you are so laid back that nothing matters to you you will be fine here... but if you expect your drinks to arrive within half and hour, to not be ignored when trying to order, and to receive any kind of treatment you'd expect from a quality hotel - think again.
This place has a very serious management issue that debases the entire hotel. Over the Christmas and New year period, staff walked out because of management, managers hid from angry clients and clients received the worst night of their lives at a cost of £170 each for a gala dinner. The latter turning out to be a buffet, 2 minute firework display and a couple of untrained dance acts.
During our stay we witnessed no less than 18 couples complaining independently to management, including ourselves, what we never witnessed was any resolution. One month later the hotel refuses to engage booking agents, ourselves or other guests all demanding a refund for aspects of their stay including the tragic Gala dinner.
If you can deal with nothing for a premium, if you can't there are much better places to stay in Goa where the service and quality matches the beauty of the hotel and surroundings.

Room Tip: Second floor rooms are the only ones with a potential of sea views. And second floor garden rooms wi...

I do visit Goa during Christmas every year and this time we decided to look for a place away from the usual hustle and bustle of North Goa. Lalit was indeed an ideal location given the circumstances, but lacked few things to make this a perfect vacation for us. The hotel doesn't have anything to do especially in the evening. I would recommend some entertainment shows for kids or even a theater which can host movies. Also the selection of TV channels were dismissive, but I felt it was a good choice, later. Also the staff, especially the temps and apprentices need to be more friendly and approachable. Some of them were masters in doing the disappearing act when asked for something. It really brought down the good impression created by the senior staff of the hotel. Overall the property is beautiful, but needs to add more green especially on the golf track facing the sea.

Room Tip: All rooms are good....large sized...
