It is a year since we stayed in the Cidade Hotel. This was an intensely traumatic period for our family because two of our sons were involved in a very serious road accident and spent six weeks in the Manipal Hospital before they could be flown back to England. The rest of the family (Peter, Rachel and Finn) had to...

We stayed here for a week recently on the recommendation of family, who last visited 10 years ago. It was comfortable, great buffet breakfast in the cafe by the pool, friendly staff, but not overly attentive. Enjoyed our break for relaxation, but would be interested to see other areas of Goa if we were to return. Beachside location. Anisha very...

We spent two days with our grand children as "member"s. We did not stay in the rooms, but got to use the beach and club house for a reasonable fee. The beach was just right - it was clean, quite and private, for us and our six and four year old grand children. We were on the beach for hours...

Hotel rooms are clean but interior and bathrooms need to be updated. Great pool and direct access to a clean beach! Beautiful garden, good restaurants. Breakfast selection catered mainly to local taste. We stayed during the one of the "wedding months" (December) and there was a wedding every night. Unfortunately you could hear people talking on the floors until late...

The hotel inspite of being old was really well maintained. Housekeeping was cordial and prompt. F&B both food and services was meeting expectations. Though cannot say the same thing for the other services used. Was unhappy with services provided by the Front desk & the business centre.

My husband and I stayed here for 18 nights in November. The hotel is spotlessly clean as are the rooms. Our room was large and very comfortable.

Visited the hotel in December for a wedding, decor was superb and place looked great.Valet service wasn't available which is very inconvenient to the guests. We had to walk down to the venue all dressed for almost a km. Something has to be done to improve the situation.
