I try to be in GOA for new year with family . North GOA is the action centre. But the traffic jams and rowdy crowd in north GOA has killed the fun.

This huge resort in SOUTH GOA is a very good place . It is complete holiday in itself, clean beach, two swimming pools, activity room for children, three restaurants, two bars, huge rooms complete with kitchens, one grocery shop......lovely parties in the evening.....it is a mini GOA.

Room Tip: Seek the room nearest to the beach

This was ours first visit to Varca Beach in this October. However my parents stayed in this resort around 3-4yrs back and had good experience.
We too thought of having great fun in this resort but some of our dreams were shattered due to negligence of resort which I will discuss it after.
Positive- We were 2 families (2Couple with 2 each teenage kids) and had booked 2No of 1Br. Our rooms were ready on our arrival and this was great. Rooms were nicely decorated with all amenities like dry kitchen. We were allotted newly renovated rooms in main resort building very near to swimming pool. In my room washroom was only accessible from inside room instead of having also access from living room also which my friend was having.
So this became somewhat uneasy for me. As resort was running full, but Mr Jimmy & Ms Vinita were courteous to shift my room to 2 hotel units next day which made my stay most comfortable.
Staff here is excellent.
Swimming Pool were Ok Ok Clean but water was not sparking clear.
Beach is very easily accessible by 2 minutes walk inside the resort and beach was very clean.
However the water sports here is too costly as compared with water sports in Anjuna, Calungute Beach.
Restaurants here are reasonable upper priced but food is delicious and service is good.
Negative- TAXI UNION. We had a friend who gave us his Innova for self drive during our stay. Taxi Drivers looked at us with a hatred sight and also passed remarks whenever we passed them. But on last day, a person called us in our room and started abusing us for having self drive Innova. He further told that they will not allow us to move out. We brought this into notice to Gen Mgr Jimmy who also was astonished.
But wort was still to come. When we went to parking lot to pick our cab we found that group of drivers came there and nailed the front Tyre from 3 places. They also broke the back tail light. This all happened infront of security guard who was tight liped of taking the names. After we informed this to Gen Mgr Mr Jimmy, he came to us but could not do anything except showing sympathy and helplessness. We changed the Tyre and went to airport with not happy hearts.
So I think that Resort Management must do something to remove monopoly of taxi union to get on good names of guests.

Room Tip: Take Room near reception as these are newly renovated.

I have been a Club Mahinda member for 8 years now and must say the Varca property at Goa is indeed their flagship resort!

Goa has multiple faces and multiple identities...the Varca beach property of Club Mahindra embodies the refined and quaint side in being at the secluded Varca beach in South Goa. It caters to a particular section of tourists who are looking at lazing in the verdant luxury of a 5 star resort with a private beach to call its own.

The property is very well maintained and must say being a timeshare resort, the hotel is in immaculate condition.

Being a typical timeshare, room service is definitely not one of their calling cards and can be quite painful. Meals are not very adventurous and the usual option that needs to be exercised by Club Mahindra members specially is the fixed meal plan pass on a daily basis.

Goa. like I said earlier, has many faces and for a discerning traveller like myself, I love the wild and adventurous side of Goa where one experiences a certain young vibrancy. That vibrancy is missing from this hotel. it is too sanitized to be called a typical GOAN GOAN Hotel.

But all in all, a finely maintained 5 star luxury resorts with all the trappings that come in with such an identity.

Definitely a must visit for those trips to Goa when you don't want to venture out to see the magic of the wild city!

I am a purple studio member who got a reservation in Club mahindras much hyped Varca beach Goa resort after multiple attempts.The disillutionment started from check in time where we realised that two rooms bked at the same time under the same membership was alloted in different buildings!!! Then after waiting for more than an hour we finally got the rooms. My impression of the resort was of run down place which had lost its glory....I cant understand why a group of Mahindras stature cannot maintain its property in a better manner. The rooms where avrage with some fancy looking fans which do not move and poor air conditioning.The floor tiles where stained and air con was leaking......Todays Indian traveller is a well exposed person who has a good sense of what luxury is.Varca beach was not luxurious and not even clean....food was average ....imagine a seaside resort serving frozen fish....ofcourse no complaints about the staff ...they did their best to make our stay memorable...My advice to Club Mahindra is that it is a great property ( with a private beach and two good swimming pools and lot of open space ) that requires just some maintenance.
