“Simply Awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

Location, Location, Location..... Naaaahh ! Its Location, Service, Quality & Excellent Food. A killer of a combination.

Bang opposite Tito's lane, undoubtedly the most happening area in the whole of Goa and a 10 mins walk from the beach. The rooms are well maintained, nice and clean. 2 clean pools with Life gaurds are a treat. The breakfast is a yummy combination of Indian and continental dishes. The best part of this hotel is its Friendly Staff and excellent service, we complained of an AC problem due to power fluctuation at 3.00 am in the morning and were promptly sent an engineer to resolve it. All in all an Awesome Experience..... Highly recommended !

Stayed at the Ronil beach resort in July for 3 nights, got a great off-peak price including Breakfast, the hotel itself inst too far from the beach as some have said, its about a leisurely 10min walk from Baga Beach, and a slow 30min stroll to Calungate beach, you walk by a ton of shops & bars to reach either beach, so you don't really notice the distance if your popping in and out of the shops for a browse

The breakfast was good, as it was off peak there wasn't a buffet style breakfast, we were asked upon arrival at the restaurant what we would like, i always had scrambled egg on toast, again it was nice. The room was better than expected, simple, clean and comfortable, again for the price, you don't expect luxury, but i was very comfortable along with 2 friends in a double room.

They also have a small spa, you can have a 60min Massage for Rs1000, which was an added bonus, i didnt have one, but my friend did and said it was just as good as one you would get in London where they charge £60+ for 45min!

The reception was very helpful in arranging car's and day trips for us, would highly recommend taking a car/taxi for the day and heading to the spice plantation, its about a 45min drive, so you need an AC car.

We were guests at Ronil Beach Resort in October, 2011 for 6 nights. We were welcomed liked family and enjoyed every moment of our stay. The service was friendly, personal and professional. The food was a wonderful assortment of Goan dishes with lots of spice. This is a affordable hotel for the budget minded Western tourist. The hotel is within walking distance of the beach and night life, but it is nice to have a refuge off the hustle and bustle of the streets. There are two pools, our room had air conditioning and was clean. I look forward to the opportunity to return with our children to show them Goa from this safe, friendly, clean and welcoming sanctuary.

We visited Goa in January, After going through reviews we booked Ronil Beach resort. Situated on the most crowded baga titos road but as we entered inside, it came out to be a lovely place secluded from outside traffic. We asked for our room that we booked via travelguru & here started the problem as the room which was given to us was away from pool with nowhere facing. We asked for pool facing room(please note there were two pools, one small & 1 big & majority of rooms are pool facing & guests can enjoy pool side music & dance while sitting in their balconies) but they rudely answered that no more room is available. We settled for the same room but after few minutes only noticed a loud disturbing noice that according to hotel staff was coming from centrally AC unit on upper floor. We requested for room change at 11 pm & then as they were having no choice so shifted us in another room that was room pool faced.

We were happy with that room but in midnight hours, water started dripping from AC & our room got filled with water then they again shifted us to different room that was big but again facing no where. Overall, we changed 3 rooms in 3 days due to poor maintenance. Moreover, instead of taking reasonable steps to please guests & to take a step ahead in solving the problems that customers are facing because of their poor maintenance, we were running after them the whole time for services.

Stayed here for two weeks and loved it.

About 250 yards to the beach, within walking of a lot of restaurants, and on the opposite side of the main road to the beach. The Ronil is one of the few hotels to have it's own enclosed compound so people couldn't wander through. Some hotels on the beach side have access roads right though the hotel.

It has two pools, a large one at the front and a smaller one to the rear. We happend to arrive in time for Valentines Night and they put on a lavish show and dinner. The hotel was dressed up with hearts and stars everywhere. It looked beautiful. Most nights there is a some kind of music on, varying in quality but on the whole good.

We ate here many times for lunch and dinner, and it is as good as any restaurant on the strip. No upset tummies here or elsewhere. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are good for India, with air con, and we had a lovely one with a balcony overlooking the pool. There is a safe in the room which is useful.

Affluent Indians from Mumbai come here, so at breakfast as well as an English buffet there is also an Indian one. Try it, it's lovely. Oh, and Wedenesday is Dosa day where the chef makes Dosas freshly for you.

Unfortunately a few of the locals don't understand poolside ettiquette and get a bit shirty about the Europeans having the loungers with a least one racist comment made. But if they don't turn up until 3 pm and they are all taken what do they expect folks to do? 99% were very friendly though. World record for the earliest German towel on a lounger? 9pm the night before! :-)

If you stay here it's better to be at the rear of the hotel. The main road at the front is very noisy as the highway code consists entirely of blowing your horn every 5 seconds. And the road is heavy with traffic up till midnight. The rear of the hotel backs on to some empty fields so is very quiet.

Book your own excursions. There are a couple of travel agents within walking distance who offer exactly the same tours as the package companies for about 30% less. Be sure to travel to Udupi. Six hours each way on the local train for some real Indian ambiance. Fresh food and drink served on the train, exchanged every fourth station. Good and it's so cheap. Passengers are very friendly and curious about you. In Udupi every night there is the most lavish religious festival. Giant carriages (60 feet high) , elephants, fireworks. Not put on for tourists, they do it every night for themselves but you are so welcome.

Can't wait to reurn. In fact we've already booked next year....for 3 weeks!

Room Tip: Try to be at the rear away form the main road.
