GOA HOTELS AND RESORTS TRAVELS

OUR STAY AT NORTH 16 | HARD ROCK HOTEL GOA REVIEW

It was our third day in Goa. Post Lunch, we moved on to the next hotel in Goa which we had booked a night before without even reading a single review about it. We were searching for hotels online and came up with this hotel and decided to take a chance. Ok, so with lots of apprehensions, we made our way to this hotel and reached there around 3’o clock. Our main reason for choosing this hotel over others was its proximity to the Baga and Calangute beach.

Location:

This Hotel is located 40 kms away from Dabolim International Airport and 20 kms away from Thivim Railway Station. Nestled in the heart of Calangute, Hard Rock is just 1 km away from Calangute Beach and 2 kms from Baga Beach. 

OUR STAY AT NORTH 16 | HARD ROCK HOTEL GOA REVIEW

“Hey did I tell you that North 16 is now re-branded as Hard Rock Hotel and it is the India’s first Music Inspired Lifestyle Hard Rock Hotel in Goa.”

First Impressions:

There is a narrow and pathetic road which leads to the hotel and believe me I was spellbound when I reached there. What can I say? This hotel was just perfect. This hotel has a good ambience and a feel good factor right from the entrance itself. Reception area looks simple yet classy. The hotel staff retrieved our luggage from the cab and guided us to sit in the lobby area and served us welcome drink. After doing some check-in formalities, our bags were quickly whisked to our room. Our check-in process was smooth and hassle free.

OUR STAY AT NORTH 16 | HARD ROCK HOTEL GOA REVIEW

This beautiful hotel has 135 luxurious rooms without balconies, a banquet hall, a boardroom, an on-site Deli, a Bar and a coffee shop. Of late, they have been some recent additions in the hotel like a Rock Shop, Hard Rock Roxity Kids Club and Body Rock Fitness Center. There are now three types of dining options there for guests- Sessions,Constant Grind and the Poolside Bar & Grille. Sessions is a continental buffet restaurant. Constant Grind is a place where you can go and have coffee, tea-infused drinks, cocktails and freshly-baked items. And hit the Poolside bar for fruit infused spirits and classic cocktails.

Room:

One of their staffs personally escorted us to our room. I was instantly charmed by the compact yet beautiful, perfectly lit and tastefully done up room which was well equipped with all the modern amenities. Overall, there are 135 rooms/suites in this hotel. You can choose from Deluxe King Room, Deluxe Twin Room, Deluxe King Room Gold Pool view, Deluxe Twin Room Gold Pool view, Studio Suite King, Rock Family Suite, Rock Suite King, Rock Suite Platinum.

OUR STAY AT NORTH 16 | HARD ROCK HOTEL GOA REVIEW

The bed was king sized, fluffy, incredibly comfortable and cozy and there was a work desk too. It had a mini bar, tea and coffee making machine, two slippers, fluffy bath robe and two water bottles. The bathroom was nice and spacious and had both a shower and a bathtub. Our room was pool facing but there was no balcony.

The Pool Side:

My favorite place in this hotel was the pool side area. The expansive infinity pool was cool, refreshing, clean and blue with loungers besides the pool. My Hubby and I spent a lot of time relaxing by the pool and soaking up the drinks. Our complimentary breakfast had a great spread with huge array of choices, from fruits to south Indian delicacies to non-veg and cheeses, pastries and what not. Also, the hotel staff was professional, polite, and courteous.

OUR STAY AT NORTH 16 | HARD ROCK HOTEL GOA REVIEW

I must say that my stay at North Hard Rock hotel was an absolute delight. The staffs at the hotel were attentive and courteous and service offered to us was great. If you are looking for a luxury hotel at an excellent location with proximity to Baga and Calangute beaches of Goa, then this one should definitely be your choice. It’s a perfect place to relax and refresh oneself before heading out to enjoy Goa. Have you ever stayed in this hotel? If yes, then how was your experience? Don’t forget to share as I will be very happy to hear your story.
