The positives: very friendly staff who tried very hard to please, rooms could be cleaned every day if you wished with clean bed linen and towels.Our son... More

There is also free Wi Fi. The menu is good, with Indian, Chinese and continental to choose from and their excellent Sunday lunch is so... More

Just back from two weeks at Ruffles. The rooms are at the rear of the very popular restaurant there is a pretty garden and a lovely pool. Rooms are fairly small but adequate and very clean. The staff are attentive. Good value for money .

We had our evening meal here a few days ago. The previous night, there were no tables free so were impressed. We sat outside and listened to the Karaoke....not too bad lol! The meals were hot and tasty and served pretty promptly. The menu seems predominantly westernised but hey ho, it was good & that's the main thing.

I visited this place for dinner. I got very good service with delicious dinner. Ambience was very calm with music from band group in background. The resort is at convenient location and I somehow missed to book room here. Pros: awesome ambience, delicious food. Cons: Best for English food. For Indian food, there are other better restaurants available.

We've been visiting Goa for many years, and always include a few trips to Ruffles (never stayed in the hotel, as we prefer Thomson). Our highlight is Paulie - a great Goan singer / entertainer. We generally have a meal - English grub eg pie or sausages are very popular, but I love Goan food, so have fish!! The staff... More
