    I am sending my parents to Goa for a holiday, a place they have wanted to go for long. As I am treating them to this holiday I want the best for them. One of the important factors of the holiday is the hotel. I would like to choose a 5-star hotel for them but do not know which one would be the best according to location.
    Two hotels which come into mind are Grand Hyatt and Radisson, but I am unaware of their exact location.

    Please suggest which 5 star hotel I should choose in Goa for my parents.
