“Good Hotel and perfect location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2010

It's a perfect place if you want a good hotel at an affordable price. I had been with my family and my son liked the place a lot. Though the swimming pool is small, but the place is very clean, friendly staff. We had two rooms booked for us and we needed to check out late, the staff was very helpful to shift us in one room. They charged us for one room and allowed us to check out in the night. The food in their restaurant is not that great. But would definately love to stay again in this place again.

We were in North Goa for about 5 days. We had never been to India before so we relied strictly on trip advisor. We first stayed at a hotel up the street called Casa De Goa. We wanted to switch up the hotel we were staying at, and drove past this hotel and it looked brand new. We hopped out of our taxi and went to ask the hotel how much it was a night. The rates were very inexpensive. While we were there asking the rates, they showed us two different rooms. One was a suite, the other was a standard room. The suite was only a few dollars more per night, but we weren't going to be in the room much anyway.

Pros:
- VERY friendly staff, extremely helpful
- VERY comfortable beds
- Flat Screen TV with a lot of channels
- Clean
- Good Location


Cons:
- Pool was closed while we were there which was a bummer because it was so hot out
- No mini fridge, but small bar area
- No furniture on balcony
- No shower door in the shower so bathroom tended to get pretty wet while showering, but great pressure!!!
- So-So breakfast buffet, but we didn't find a decent breakfast buffet while we were in Goa.
- Only 1 handle lock on the door, no dead bolt.
- TV went out often for about 20 seconds-1 minute at a time, but I'm pretty sure that happens at every hotel. Hey, its INDIA!

Calangute Grande is a value for money hotel. If you are looking for five star comforts, this is not the right choice. But it does offer a comfortable and stress free stay. We were looking for a weekend getaway and the budget was limited. After going through reviews for various hotels on tripadvisor, we selected Calangute Grande as it had mostly positive reviews and the photos looked promising. We were not disappointed by the reviews on reaching the location, it delivers what it promises.
Calangute Grande is located close to the Calangute beach but you will still have to walk a good 15 minutes to reach there. Market is close by which has quite a few eating places. The hotel is a no frill hotel but a really comfortable one. The rooms and bathrooms are clean and airy but quite small. The bed is soft and gives a five star comfort. We had gone in Monsoon so the hotel seemed pretty empty. The hotel has a restaurant but the food is not great and the service quite slow. There is a small swimming pool and it was lots of fun to just laze around and chill in the water since we were the only ones there.
The reception staff is very friendly and promptly helped us with sightseeing options, car bookings and ferry tickets. If you are looking for a budget holiday with a comfortable stay this is a perfect choice. The manager of the hotel, Savio is a very helpful and friendly guy and he along with his team is dedicated to make your stay a memorable one.

I was there from 27 Sep to 02 Oct and i can say that hotel,service and staff are too good.Hotel is located around 500 mtrs from calangute beach.Best part of the property is,it is far from traffic.Room was too good, but swimming pool was not operational.Food and room service was also good.

Anyways i like this hotel very much and will recommend it to others also.

Will upload photos soon.

Calangute Grande is situated just meters away from the famous calangute and Baga beaches. It's a 3star hotel with spacious and tidy rooms, we had booked a suite room and it was simply relaxing. The staff is helpful, but the best part of the hotel is its location. If you are looking for a leisure stay do opt for this. the hotel doesnt have a proper swimming pool thou and you dont have much choice when it comes to food, the tandoor is hardly operated, but the food is tasty...... apart from the hotel you could try the food at "Souzo Lobo" on the calangute beach, you get yummy stuff out there right from sea food to chinese.. dont miss the Goan curry rice... Altogether we had a great stay and I would reccommed this hotel if you are looking for a decent stay with moving around to explore Goa. Do rent a bike and there you go... the night life in Goa rocks..
