I have decided to take my sister on a surprise holiday to Goa. For the past couple of days, I have been looking at the Whispering Palms Beach Resort in Goa. I want the resort to be relaxing for her, and from the pictures, it looks like an ideal resort to stay at, but I would like to know more. 1. I would like to know how far it is from the beach and shops? 2. Is it worth having meals at the hotel like breakfast and dinner? What kind of food do they serve? 3. Does the resort have its own gym and what time can we use the pool in the mornings? 4. What is the hotel atmosphere like?
