“Review of Royal Goan Beach Club at MonteRio”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

The resort is an ok one with poor room and house keeping. The rooms are shabby with torned betsheets and unserviceable TV & phone services. The room service is horrible, u keep on reminding them but nothing moves. The standard of the room is also not good.

Room Tip: Don't choose this resort at all

We simply loved the resort because of the following reasons:

1. Centrally located to Calangute Baga strip and Anjuna Vagatore beaches on the other side
2. Banged next to Mackies Saturday Night Market.A must visit for great bargains and great live food counters.
3.Rooms were well equipped with all the daily necessary items.They were clean and spacious.My baby enjoyed it.
4.Swimming pool was clean and well kept.Enjoyed there a lot
5.The small bazaar which had all the necessary groceries. Good part of the shop was they sold essential things by unit items like one potato and two eggs. They also had liquor at the dealers rate.

The only thing missing in the kitchen was a microwave.We had a pool facing view. There were some rooms which were at basement level so when asking for a room ask for ground or first floor.They didn't have a dedicated parking for travelers.

Thank you for your visit and appreciating our services. I am pleased that your stay was good and we achieved our objective in doing so.
I must also add that all our Imperial apartments have microwaves and for all other rooms we provide it on request free of charge. We also have dedicated parking for travelers at the side of our resort but unfortunately due to the boom in the market of vehicles lately it sometimes gets full specially during peak season. We have rented a part of public parking just opposite the resort for resolving it.
We look forward for your next visit.
If you need any information please feel free to contact me on kamran@royalperspective.com

Warm Regards,

Good location though slightly away from beach(walking distance).Very helpful staff and really looks after the guest Lots of children activities with open space. Only disappointing part was the much publicised Jazz night by Collin. Foods are really of value for money.Best part of our stay was the Saturday night market which is in walking distance.Rooms are spacious and well maintained.This is our sixth visit to Goa and for the first time we stay in North Goa and we really enjoyed our stay though we were slightly apprehennsive.

Room Tip: Always ask for rooms near the entrance i.e. near the provisonal store if you hate climbing as rooms...

Thanks for the lovely comments and for appreciating the resort. I am sure the staff moral will get a boost with your appreciation and they will work with more zeal.

I am sorry if you didn't like the Jazz night for its quality of music. We have introduced some new additions in our evenings which are different from Friday Jazz.

amazing resort, very close to key locations as already mentioned by others. Staff was extremely friendly. Unfortunately I met with some uncertainty while celebrating last week of the year-2012. I must say all staff was very helpful and they did help me as and when required.
Rooms were spacious and clean. I had swimming pool facing room and I used to get nice morning view.
Food was as usual, not so great, as being vagitarion do not have many options.

In summary, the stay was cool and staff is extremely friendly, thus upgraded the membership to Kerma :). Now planning to see their Bali resort.

Room Tip: Choose front room facing swimming pool..view is amazing

We have been staying here for 5 years now and there has been a dramatic improvement in the facilities following investment and development.
Without exception, the staff are and have always been very friendly, helpful.
The apartments are spacious, very comfortable and well equipped with beautiful bathrooms since last year.
The pool is very pleasant although little used as most people prefer to go to the beech.
The bar/restaurant has a good atmosphere, excellent food and is reasonable priced compared to other local alternatives. (Very cheap by UK standards)
Unfortunately this year we had a real issue with dogs barking at various times in the middle of the night. We resorted to sleeping on the sofa bed in the lounge with ear plugs in, which helped, but was unacceptable. To be fair the hotel offered to move us to another room, but with the dogs being on all sides, this was not really a solution either. I know that this wasn’t within the control of the hotel staff, who were sympathetic and helpful. However, not being able to get a good nights sleep whilst on holiday is a serious problem and has forced us to the conclusion that we will not stay here again.

Room Tip: I am sure there must be some rooms that don't have the dog noise problem, so worth asking up fro...

We are sorry but Goa has a huge Dog problem which was evident from our neighborhood during your stay. We have complained to the Animal control people who are looking into it. However their pace is slow but I am sure it will help in the long run.

We look forward for your next visit. You can contact me on kamran@royalperspective.com
