“Awesome service and great rooms...keep it up!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012 via mobile

We stayed at the property for 3 nights starting November 8, 2012 through November 12, 2012.

The rooms, lounges and restaurant appeared to be newly built and in all the property was nicely maintained. The rooms and surroundings were clean and tidy. The highlight however was the 'Service'. Right from the folks at the reception, the chefs and the bell boys...we recieved impeccable service and were pleasantly surprised with small little things that they did every now and then

The pool could have been larger but nevertheless it was well maintained! One of the best hotels in the Calangute area and if you are looking be where the action is, then Citrus is the place to be. Is definite THUMBS UP from our end...we had a really nice time thanks to you guys!

Seamless booking, good food, lovely pool and very friendly staff. All in all we had an excellent stay at citrus goa. Proximity to beach is good too.
When we reached there the entrance was non impressive and I though o myself 'oh god. It's one of those website pics impressive but rubbish in real life kinda place. But we were pleasantly surprised as the lobby takes you to a quaint little resort away from the street's hustle bustle. Good spacious room and huge bathrooms with all amenities. We had a wonderful time at the resort. WTheir pool is really good too

A very nice hotel. Helpful friendly staff in a good location. About 5minutes walk from the beach.

The room was clean and modern, and the pool and sun loungers were all clean and nice. I only ever ate breakfast, but the food was nice and the staff were friendly and welcoming.

I was staying on the ground floor, and the housekeepers kept opening and leaving the ground floor balcony door unlocked once they'd finished cleaning. So something to keep an eye on. There is a safe in the room, but still a potential security issue.

Room Tip: Phase 2 rooms (only £30 more for the week for me) from the outside atleast look a lot better than th...

Wow, what can I say, AMAZING!!!!! everything about this hotel is top notch, front of house are so friendly and just great especially Deepak, such a nice man, with an amazing smile, makes you feel really welcome, as do his staff, just don,t remember their names lol!!

Rooms are just soooo nice, as you see on website they are just as nice, breakfast amazing so much choice, pool area brilliant, sun loungers so comfortable.

I could go on for ever, the room cleaners so friendly, smiley, and nice.

All I can say is if you want an amazing hotel at a 3 star price this is the place, I hope they don't up the rates now I have bigged them up lol.

Fantastic stay to finish my Goa holiday, ps stayed here 10 AMAZING nights!!!!!

The hotel is located around 500mtrs from the calangute beach with the shopping are very nearby. Quality of the food in the reastaurant is excellent. Moreover it's reastaurant is open for 24hrs. The maintenance of the room is not upto the mark. The room-121 we stayed has some dark patches in the ceiling and walls. Hair dryer in the bathroom was not working. Else the stay was very comfortable. Staffs were very helpfull.

Nothing special about this hotel. Beware off noisy structure. You can hear people coming and going at night. I expected more. Usual problems with cable-TV and sporadic but expensive Internet access. Swimming pool was shallow and a little bit too public. Breakfast was average Indian fare and okay. Staff helpful but location not very good. They covered up all the balconies with Plastic sheeting because of late monsoon rain. Not very nice . Overall an average hotel with relatively good value far from a top-level experience. I was in Goa 30 years ago and have not seen much progress. Thailand and Bali leave India far behind in terms of cleanliness and quality. Local Indian tourists tend to litter and crowd all establishments. Beaches are not very nice and far too crowded. Best thing about Goa is the history

Stayed in Citrus - Goa for 3 nights and these 3 nights have been the most memorable days in my Family's trip to Goa. A very relaxing and a tension free place as the staff make it that way. Special appreciation to Mr Deepak and his team for showing great hospitality and making our stay a memorable one :-) Also the Buffet Breakfast is something which really needs special comments as they are indeed a lavish one with varieties.Very convieniently located to all the happening beaches in Goa.

Room Tip: Go for Citrus - Goa, You will not regret it :-)
