Nice resort like hotel with a lot of greenery. Hotel is well maintained. Its away from the beeches and hence quiet. Close to the Mangeshi temple and Shant Durga Temple. If your main intention is to visit the temples and stay away from the hustle and bustle of Goa, this is a good place to stay. Reasonably priced rooms. Has... More

Farmagudi Residency is a property of GTDC. The rooms are reasonably clean. The restaurant provides reasonably good breakfast, with very few choices for vegans. The location is nice. As it is away from the beaches, it is not a crowded locality, close to the town of Ponda.

Beautiful cottage-concept given to the property is a natural attraction. The lazying-layout adds to the ambiance of the place. There is nothing much to be spoken of about the room-service or other services in the property. For so adept is the staff at the 'NO DISTURBING' policy that it is ensured that the guest receives all the essentials the moment... More

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.

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
