William's Beach Retreat
Ranked #9 of 17 Hotels in Colva
Reviewed September 14, 2012

I visited Goa in 2010 in Diwali season. All hotels were packed with rates reaching sky. From Calangute i called Williams & they kept two rooms for my family just for my on phone request and without any advance. A great gesture I beleive. The Hotel location wise is not the best, as it is a bit away from sea (5 min walk). but rooms are grt so is food and resteaurant (with bar). It also has swimming pool and great service.

I was here with my family & one of my friends family, from 21st to 24th of May 2012, Its a good resort with good resturant having all types of food, very near to colva beach, walking distance around 500 mts. from beach, Resort is with pool & is cleaned every day, quality of food & taste is good in the resturant, staff is cooperative, enough space for parking, best thing is the tariff. Tariff is in budget, what u want in INR 1200 this was the reason we had 3 night stay in this resort. Will again stay there if we ever been to goa again.

Room Tip: stay in pool side rooms

Stayed there this year for the second year running,the staff as ever will do anything for you and are always very helpful and polite. I wouldnt hesitate too stay here again but there was a problem with about 30 children being given swimming lessons every afternoon. This meant I didnt feel I could use the pool and also with the amount of noise being generated i couldnt relax. This spoilt my stay there to a large extent and i found it very frustrating when you think i have paid for a holiday and i cant have peace and quiet.
The staff are always attentive and I have always had a good laugh even though Jack the bar manager is a Liverpool fan.

Room Tip: Stay on the ground floor near the pool the rooms are much cooler

For those of you stayng in Colva head to Camillsons - 5 mins away.Sunbeds on the grass under the palms and a great Dahl(lentils for those haven't been before)Beach view also.

We , I and my Mother have came to India- Goa in the end of our trip 2012. We've stayed in Williams Beach Retreat Hotel in Colva Beach . This hotel has 16 aircon rooms and 16 nonaircon rooms with bathroom inside. This hotel is very good managing by manager Seby, who is very helpful for everybody. His staf are working very good--everyday cleaning rooms, changing towels, soaps, toalet papers etc.The compeks has big clean swimming pool , restaurant and bar with resonable prices. His location is very good--near the beach (2 min walking). We have very good time here.

williams is a great place with excellent staff and lovely pool. the bar is a great place to pop in for a drink on your way to the restarants. i have been many many times and find it very friendly and in no way have i seen any kind of shunning from ex pats. it is not full of raging alcoholics just holidaymakers and wonderful bar staff.

Room Tip: sadly not stayed here lately but not because its not good but because we rent an apartment
