All in all the food was of good standard fish was fresh, chips like at home, steak tender and all served very hot, drinks were cold. You can eat inside or... More

We visited for drinks via the roadside entrance and have to say the snacks were good, but typically English. (Breakfast fry-up, pies, chips etc) which if you're not after authentic Indian food, is ok. Our rating is purely based upon a short visit for the above & not for the hotel etc. We found the beers (kingfishers) to be reasonably... More

We stayed here in December 4-7th. Rooms were bad with bad smell. Toilet taps were broken. No hot water. Wifi available only at reception not in rooms. Fan making disturbing noise. AC making horrible helicopter noise. Better not to talk about service, nobody will respond. Only advantage is its in good location very near to superb beach.

If your itinerary consists of spending maximum time outside, then choosing to stay in this resort will not disappoint you. The rooms were clean and the location of this resort is a plus point. The food was good too.

We pre-booked Ruffles beach resort through cleartrip which is advised for a hot destination like Goa. The resort is located very close to the beach and compared to the price, they provide decent services not very great though. We opted for bed and breakfast but the breakfast was not very lavish and was alright. Also you can opt for only... More

The place was good. Rooms were clean and airy. Prefer rooms on 1st floor as the balconies are better utilized. Pool is a nice addition. Service was prompt & Friendly. The bar & restaurant is attached next to pool so u can relax in the pool and have ur drinks. Ruffles also has a good parking space so be it... More
