“Fantastic hotel ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014

Excellent location
10min walk to the beach
Good food
Nice ambience
Staff is very courteous and helpful
Good hotel for families
Nice and clean swimming pool.
Spa service is also advisable.
Baga beach, Calangute beach are all near by.
Sequerium beach and vagator beach are the best beaches.
Aguada fort is boring, can be avoided.

The Citrus is in a good location near shops and not too far from the beach. It is incredibly difficult to park near the hotel even to get dropped off. The pool could have been cleaner when we were there but this may have been due to the busy time at New Year. Staff were friendly and there were good choices, both European and Indian, at breakfast.

we have visited goa on 1st January 2014 for 5 nights and stayed in citrus Goa. As usual I have taken the help of trip advisor. I have travelled with my wife along with 6years daughter and 12 years old son. It's very good property with superb location, calm,clean,child friendly. We have booked superior room but they updated our room to classic room. In spite of hotel was full, our check in and stay was smooth. One thing missing in reception was smile. The rooms were extremely clean and big. The house keeping staff was excellent and gave excellent service. Breakfast was just ok. Main plus point of this hotel was very near to Calangute beach (5 minutes Walking) and Bagha beach (20 minutes walking). Maintained and clean pool. Gym was too small with very limited equipments. I found treadmill was not in operation since long . Smile and helping hands were missing in the hotel specially when someone enters the reception. Some supervision is extremely needed during Breakfast time and reception area. Hope the management will take care of these things.

Had stayed here for 3 nights along with my buddies this weekend.. Had an awesome time.. It is very ideally located in the best happening places in Goa. It is about 5 min walk to calungute beach and about 15 to 20 min Walk to Baga Beach.. The staff are very friendly and the hotel can improve on their food.. It is a nice , small , cozy place to stay.. Ideally located..Keep up the good work. The rooms are new and they have a nicebalconey and i would recommend this place if a person is visiting Goa..!!Keep it up..!!

Again, I took the advise of a lot of tripadvisor travel reviews and chose Citrus for my stay in Goa. Let me start with the positives - The hotel is an ideal location - few metres away from Calangute beach and walking distance to Baga. The hotel itself is quite pleasant and clean. The staff is courteous and excellent - inspite of the fact that the hotel was nearly full, their response time to any request was quite fast - hence commendable.The rooms were extremely clean. So that explains the rating of good. I would have rated it better had it not been for few things that I personally felt that the management could look into. First, the restaurant gets crowded during breakfast time, so the staff is quite busy and overlooks the fact that some of the tables have to be cleared for the people waiting to sit. I would have thought there should be someone supervising these things including whether the food in the counter has to be replenished on time. Secondly, I found the tap in the wash basin within my room was leaking. I brought it to the notice of the housekeeping staff, but the tap was not repaired. Hence water kept leaking out in small quantity throughout my stay. I did not get newspapers or did not some toileteries like the dental kit for the first two days. I presumed this was not available as a part of the package until i got it the third day. Again, some one should be cross checking these minor issues. The guests are not expected to ask all these and good hotels ensure that these are not missed out. Maybe these were exceptions to my experience , but my expectations were high based on the reviews and was a little let down. Notwithstanding the same, I would recommend this hotel to any visitor and will definitely not be averse to staying in this hotel again.

Good location, about 10 mins walk from Calangute beach. very courteous and helpful staff. Beautiful rooms and efficient staff, specially Rekha the girl from the front desk is very help full.

The restaurant gets a little crowded around breakfast time, but that could be because it was peak season with many guests.

Enjoyed my stay and would definitely come back.
