Stayed at Farmagudi residency in last week of June 2014 along with family. Rooms are clean and spacious. In house Restaurant serves good goan food. If you have plan to Visit Shantadurga and Mangeshi Temple then this is best option. Both temples are within 5km range from hotel.

We had a very nice stay here. Accoommodation is at economical rates. Location is very close to the temples and if one is visiting for religious purpose, this is the best choice. I booked online and there was no hassle at all. Very big rooms and big toilets- there are two units in one cottage. Surrounded by beautiful trees and... More

This is a very good and well maintained GTDC property. Rooms and Toilet are sufficiently large and well cleaned. Restaurant is also good and served us lunch even at 4 pm. within 20 minutes of ordering. Staffs are also very helpful. Better accommodation at that price may not be available at Ponda.

As usual the bathroom amenities... More

I have been a regular visitor to this hotel since 2005 since i visit the temple at Mardol each year. Strangely we get the same room every time without asking for it. Our stay is mostly for a couple of days. The bathroom attachments need improvement. The cupboard door never locks and so does the main door. Additional strength is... More

I have been a regular visitor to this resort since 2000. The location is splendid and perfect to visit the temples around Ponda. The overall infrastructure and facilities have again gone back to the bad old days barring a remodeling done around 2006. The cottage room alloted to us was unclean with sticky mess on the floor. one of the... More

We stood for 1 night. The rooms are simple but clean. All the residency is in a big and real well cared garden. We spent the whole morning in this garden and on the hill behind the hotel. The staff is nice and helpful. The restaurant is not very nice furnished, nor very romantic, but the food is tasty and... More

We had booked 2 nights in this residency, and we were very much deceived. Although the location is good and gardens very nice, the service and rooms are very poor; we arrived in the late evening and didn't feel very welcomed, the room was obviously not cleaned (floor and sheets dirty), very empty of basic facilities such as toilet paper...

Good quiet location, value for money, excellent food, green property on heel slope. Excellent if you are focusing trip of south goa. Far away from north goa beaches (Baga, Anjuna, kalangute etc) so not suggested unless you have your own vehicle.
