We travelled as a couple to Goa to celebrate our First Wedding Anniversary., which Swim Sea Beach Resort made into an horrifying experience. The bad experience starts with the extremely discourteous reception staff., who don't give a damn about being polite. The rooms are dingy and haunted with creaky beds,dirty bed spreads,worst toilets and ACs with no temperature changing option.... More

Whenever I think of Goa I think of Swimsea the best location for a place in Goa for reaching out to North or South Goa its also close to Dona Paula and Panjim and within an hour from Both Calangute and Colva. The food esp the complimentary Breakfast and Dinner is pathetic so stay here minus the food, the staff... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in September 2014 in a sea-facing AC room. For the price paid, the room was comfortable, spacious room and clean bathroom. Had a good view of the beach from the room as well. Room service and house keeping staff is the same, and you will find a bit of a challenge in communicating with... More

We stayed here for two nights in February 2014. Considering the tariff paid, we found the hotel very good. However, for movement to other parts of Goa hardly any public transport was available. Further, restaurants in the localities were also not found.

if you have to spend a night in a jail cell or a haunted house then do so! Avoid this so called resort at all costs. A horrible hotel that makes everything sound wonderful but trust me its really miserable, really depressing and makes you wish you never went to Goa. Rooms are pathetic and shabby, creaky crappy hospital style... More

We had booked 2 rooms and stayed there for 3 nights [13th to 15th April 2013]. The hotel is far away from the airport and took an hour to reach there. The swimming pool and garden restaurant are attractive but they do not serve much variety of foods what mentioned in their food menu. Although the sea front is not... More

Had been to Swimsea with my family and we stayed here for three days. The rooms had great value for money but other than that is was just plain average. There is no Hot Water Supply as they claim to have and the rooms are very basic. Its ok if you just want a place to crash for the night.... More
