In November 2011, my wife suggested that we surprise our old parents by taking them to Goa to celebrate their 63rd Wedding Anniversary. We promptly got in touch with my sister in Chennai and told them to keep 22 Feb to 26 Feb 12 free as we proposed to surprise our parents with a holiday in Goa. I thereafter got in touch with the Member Relationship Department(MRD) GSOWN VACATION CLUB in mid Nov 11 and put in a request for a booking for three couples in Club Mahindra Holiday Resorts or any similar property in Goa for four nights from 22 to 25 Feb 12.

I got a confirmation about our stay in Goa in early Dec 11 and was informed by the Manager MRD GSOWN VACATION CLUB that we were booked at Club Mahindra Holiday Resort at Varca Beach South Goa for one night and at Bay Watch Holiday Resort for the balance three nights. The staff explained to me that due to the problem of non availability of accommodation at Club Mahindra this arrangement had to be resorted to.

We, my parents and the two of us, drove to Goa from Pune on 22 Feb 12 and were joined by my sister and her husband, who flew down from Chennai, at the Club Mahindra Resort, Varca Beach late afternoon. The accommodation at this resort is very comfortable and every need of a holidaying family is thoughtfully looked into as the facilities provided cater for young and old alike. The catering had variety, was well cooked and presented but a little on the expensive side. The staff is friendly, kind and hospitable and all in all we all had a wonderful albeit short holiday at this resort.

The next afternoon, 23 Feb 12, we shifted in Bay Watch Beach Resort, approx 5 kms away from the Mahindra Varca Beach Resort. This lovely resort located close to Colva Beach, South Goa is a new and well constructed property which comprises deluxe studio apartments and suites. Self contained and compact, this resort does not have the plush ambience of a Club Mahindra Resort but is again very neat clean and well equipped with all modern amenities sought by a holiday seeker. The ambience is fairly good, the staff warm and hospitable and the catering varied and tastefully prepared.

Our three day comfortable stay at Bay Watch Resort including numerous visits to the beach close by, delighted our aged parents and us and made our trip truly memorable and worth its while !!


I had visited Goa with my wife on 2nd & 3rd March. I will rate Costa De Sol Resort at 3 out of 5 for my overall experience. The Good things about the resort were location, service, sunrise view from Balcony & good pool. But it was not a hotel or resort, but just a service apartment.
