“There is a problem with (tourist vehicle) car park!”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

We stayed at Varca Beach Resort & there is a nuisance with the parking of tourist vehicles which are hired from north Goa. They get punctured at night & Club Mahindra didn't let us park our cars inside nor take responsibility of it. When asked one of the staff at the hotel we got to know that Club Mahindra supported this act & didn't protect their guests' vehicles. Also, the rate of taxi union are twice the amount per day of what you would get at north Goa

The property is probably the best of Club Mahindra & hence rightly so acts as a poster boy for all their sales campaign.

It is slighltly off the Airport & Railway station and hence takes a while to reach there, but so is the case with many great lavish resorts...property is very well kept and managed and is paradise for all class...families, couples of kids...the resort offers something for everyone

restaurant variety is nice and once cant be complaining about the same.... bar next to beach is phenomenal during sunset and the pool side restaurant is perfect for breakfast

the property has a private beach - though bit expensive but very clean and better for water sports as we tried both - varca beach and kolva - this one was full of crowd and you actually have to queue up for your turn and more the people dirtier it turns...

for first timer - if you aint on your vhicle rent the kinetics just from outside the resort for as low as 200-300 rs a day. but be sure the bike has fuel in it as no gas pump is nearby. one general store near by sells petrol at inflated prices and we had to manage it via them only. so factor that in your budget ...

we booked studio apartment and everything was fine barring a minor hitch - AC went off one night for few hours and that actually disturbed a bit.

Another great element at resort is play zone...evening parties to entertain guests and above all the magical spa treatments...and if you are a couple ask for a couple package - you ll love it ...

Room Tip: Families should ask for rooms near to beach.

One of the best property of Club Mahindra. The moment you enter the resort, you get a warm reception and a welcoming smile.

The entire staff is very helpful, and always there when you need them.We arrived at Goa airport and called them at the last minute for cab pick up.They arranged in 15 mts ..Vow..that's called a service.

Beach is the centre of attraction at this resort. It just makes your trip extra memorable.

This place is worth visiting again and again

Stayed for 3 nights in late March. It was a long weekend and resort was full and it showed !

Let me first state the positives - Great beach (for most people that may be good enough!), safety norms observed better than most places for water sports in Goa, beach restaurant, courteous and well-mannered staff, moderate food prices for a 5 star property. I am keeping this brief as a lot of the other reviews cover this.

Unfortunately there are issues which need to be fixed ande and do impact your Goa holiday experience:

1. Poor housekeeping - we had a studio room where the sofa cum bed was laid out at check-in with stained bed sheet & pillows. Refrigerator had stale stuff left behind by earlier occupants. Overall room cleanliness was below average.

2. Meager bathroom supplies - There are no soaps or bath gels provided. Shower area has a dispenser labeled 'Shampooing'. Guess you use shampoo as shower gel ! No tissues in the room.

3. No Safe in the room - Guys now even budget properties have in-room safes. In a beach resort where you tend to leave lot of valuables back in the room while going to beach/pool, this is bad. Yes they have lockers at reception, but so did hotels in the 90's !

4. No hot water and very low water pressure - Day 3 eve and final day morning we had to make do with cold water for shower. Water pressure is always very low.

5. Room towels are 3 mths past their best before date. We also had to ask for hand towels

6. No bottled water in room - Again now even budget hotels keep 1-2 bottles. Here we are told that tap water is potable. Not sure if it’s a good idea. We bought our drinking water supplies from the store in the property.

6. Waterfield Cafe - Get here early or get here at your peril. This is an all-day diner. We got here at 3.30pm and the only thing there was soiled plates on every table, few helpless diners midway through their meals and sorry staff who still carried a smile. Similar experience again next day at dinner. This place needs a lot of management attention. They are short staffed both at the front end and in the kitchen. Needs serious improvement

7. Tamara Rest - This is their buffet breakfast and meal place. Very ordinary food. Tends to get over crowded, filthy and very noisy. Again good staff but mgmt. approach in restricting the no. of counters and not utilising the full area available is questionable.

8. No Wifi - only the main lobby area has Wifi with a very patchy uptime.

In summary, good property, great staff but extremely poor management. And that to me is a problem which hotels cannot fix or rather will not fix. Stay away if you are not a Club Mahindra member. If you are a foreigner you should not even consider this property ; this is designed for locals only.

If you are a Club Mahindra member, you need to be more vocal as i believe this is among their flagship property and still needs serious attention. For me there are certainly other much better properties in Goa. Not this one, certainly not anytime soon !

Room Tip: Rooms around the swimming pool could be avoided as it gets very noisy.

we had an wonderful holiday at the varca resort the climate was good and pleasant the food was great the rooms were average but they are renovating the rooms phase wise overall an the resort is wonderful and their location is the best they have three restaurant one buffet one a la carte and one sea food restaurant near the beach but sea food restaurant is closed from june to September in all we spent 5 comfortable days at this wonderful resort which has very nice helpful polite and humble staff a place worth visit they are also place that you could visit nearby Colva beach which is around 10 kilometres from the resort then madgoan city around 12 kms from resort then there Mobor beach which has the famous Titos club branch and Palolem beach the latter two place should be visited only between October to May and if you love sea Martins is a place worth the Visit the taxi in goa are very expensive so I recommend you hire two wheeler which are easily available outside the resort from 250 to 300 per day

Room Tip: if you want to spend more time on the beach than chose the rooms near the spa even the pool is right...

Spent 3 days with family at this resort. Resort is huge and spread out but was crowded owing to the summer hols. They have a private access to the Varca beach which is good and have a lovely restaurant called Dune Shack which specialises in seafood and is practically at the beach. The pools are nice, food so so, they keep organising activities for kids and for adults also in the evenings. Room that we stayed in was small, esp the bathroom - definitely the rooms nees some refurbishing. Have some local shacks situated just outside the resort, so generally had only breakfast/room service at the place. Location and size of the property is remarkable.

Room Tip: Try and take the rooms on the first and second floor - more privacy there.
