The Zuri White Sands Goa is everything you would expect from a 5-star resort. It is about a 40-minute drive south of the airport, on Varca beach. The resort has a private beach for guests, as well as a very nice swimming pool. The employees were helpful in discussing the local sites and restraurants, and can arrange a driver for the day if you want to travel outside the area. Everything about the room was great, with the slight exception that the central air was not quite strong enough to keep the room cool (would only go down to mid-70's at the coolest). The resort also has a casino onsite, which we did not visit.

As a resort it has all the normal features. On the beach, inviting swimming pools, pool bar, beach bar... etc. The facilities are getting very tired. TV reception is crackly, rooms are basic, wooden chairs around the pool are falling apart, food is nothing special. Another issue we had was with the monopoly they have on the local taxi drivers. An example: It cost us 650 R to get from the airport to the resort using the prepaid service at the airport. However from the resort the price was 1300 R? We tried walking away from the resort to find out other taxi costs and all of the taxi's we stopped we using the same hotel price card. Once you are there you stuck paying resort prices. Thank you beachshacks for making our food and drink more affordable.
