Stayed in this resort in Jan 15 for 2 days while we were in ponda City for my son's chess tournament. This is government (GTDC) run resort so it is very good in terms of value for money. Although the resort is nice with lot of greenery around. The rooms are not well maintained . They are ok in size... More

We stayed at this hotel for a day. Very poor maintenance and infested with insects. Bed sheets and towels were not clean. Rooms have low watt CFL and very dim lighting just one tube light outside the room. Will not recommend this hotel to anyone and will never visit again.

The hotel is in the outskirts of Ponda city near to Panji- Margoa highway. The Airport is around 40 kms from the hotel. Panjim city is around 20 kms. People wanting to experience the road trip via 2 wheeler have an excellent oppurtunity. The roads are mind blowing. The most famous church will be in the way to Panjim. Calangute... More

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

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.
