Ahh I already miss being here. I went there to celebrate my 1st wedding anniversary and thank heavens I chose this place. It is a lovely place to be with your partner or with your book. It simply mesmerises you over and over with its beach serenity. Staff is very warm and cooperative. Breakfast is a nice experience too. I can't ask for better.

Hotel's Favorite
We stayed at this hotel, myself and my wife, for 2 nights and the experience was wonderful. The hotel is beautiful, located on the edge of Dona Paula beach and has a gorgeous aquatic pool also facing the sands of the beach. The rooms are very well equipped with balconies facing the sea. The service is incredible, attentive, efficient and not intrusive. We had the opportunity to dine in two retaurants, the Alfama, considered the best in the whole region, which proved its fame with a delicious tasting menu and a night of fado of very high quality and Café Blue, with a varied international menu, also quite good. The only problem we had was with the internet in the room, weak and bumpy.

I stayed here for three days for a business conference. Location, ambiance, climate, pool and private beach makes you feel excited about being in Goa but food here was big disappointment. We had all meals included in their restaurant ' Laranja ' but it turned out to be just another buffet which you can get in any Mumbai hotel. I could find Goan fish curry only once in 8 meals i had there. Even breakfast was mostly continental and without much of local flavor. Would recommend to stay here but not book meals. There are many places just around in Panaji city where you can enjoy really good and economic Goan cuisine.

Dear Mr. Siddharth, Thank you for taking the time out to share your experience on your recent stay and it was a pleasure to have had you with us. We are glad to know that you enjoyed the ambience,location, beach and pool of the hotel. However, it is with great concern that we have made a note of your feedback with regard to the food.

Kindly note that this will be in place very soon and you will find a marked improvement during your future visits. We immensely value your patronage and hence we request you to kindly allow us another opportunity to be of service to you. Warm regards, Suresh Khanna General Manager Cidade de Goa – IHCL SeleQtion

It’s not easy handling a group of 50 women nearing their 50’s but Cidade de Goa staff handled it with great efficiency. The buffet breakfast was enormous and the lunch and dinner excellent. Each member of the staff did their best specially Arshdeep who went out of his way to make sure everyone was comfortable n looked after. Will surely return with my family!

If you are looking for a resort which offers you sea view from the room and sound of waves all throughout the day, then Cidade de Goa is one of the best options in Goa. Cidade is one of the oldest five star properties in India, the architecture gives an old Portuguese feel and overall the rooms, garden, pool all were well equipped and well maintained. Room selection : I had opted for the Cidade Deluxe room with sit out view, these rooms have a swing in the balcony which opens right onto the sea front and has a pathway with direct access to the beach. The resort is built in a way to give sea view from all rooms, just that I specifically wanted a room which was as close to the sea as possible  Food : Cidade has multiple food options – a café open throughout the day, a 24X7 café, bar, buffet restaurant (we had excellent buffet breakfast there everyday with great variety & taste) and an exotic Goan cuisine specialized restaurant as well. A disclaimer though, the food is a bit on the expensive side and on most days since we were visiting other parts of Ga, we anyways ended up eating out. Staff : Very helpful and friendly, a special mention to front desk personnel Soumallya who took care of our check in and also helped us with transport contacts with a smile on his face always. The staff at the restaurants including the chefs who would personally come to the tables and check on us, were very courteous. Room Wifi: Calling this out separately since this was the only issue that we had and honestly, its difficult to operate these days with limited connectivity. The WiFi connectivity was poor in the rooms and had scope of improvement. Activities: While we didn’t really indulge in the activities, there are options available for kids and also for adults who want to play beach volleyball etc. Starting from the booking to the airport pick up all the way to the drop off, everything was handled smoothly and seamlessly, plus ofcourse my obsession with having the sea at my doorstep which this resort could enable, made it a great stay!!
