We had split our visit to goa in 2 parts , first we stayed in South Goa and then traveled to North Goa. We reached Andrea and when we saw our rooms it was a rude shock. The rooms were not clean,the bathroom also required cleaning. The room service was really slow and poor. The food was just about ok. The beach is a long walk from the hotel. Since our room was near the road,it was never quiet. The swimming pool area is really small. The breakfast was good. The rooms weren't cleaned on a daily basis. In all, the stay not a good experience , as there were cockroaches and insects on the table and the kettle provided by the hotel.

Aldeia is a truly family resort, where there is a lot of peace & beauty, with its clean swimming pool, it adds charm to the beauty of the resort. The rooms are big, clean & tidy. Room service is excellent.The staff is very cooperative, especially the manager ( Mr.Subodh). Food quality is fantastic, wide variety of breakfast both veg & non veg..Ambience is excellent.
ITS A TRULY PAISA VASOOL RESORT, rightly located on the beach

Room Tip: as all the rooms are big ,spacious & peaceful but i would suggest the blocks facing the swimming...

The Aldeia santa rita is a lovely place to stay , which is situated in lovely grounds and a 5 minute stroll to nearby candolim beach.. Our rooms which were situated on the main path were basic but very clean . Air conditioning in the rooms is free and the fridge in the kitchen was stocked with beer and soft drinks.The hotel is all inclusive which is good value for those staying round the hotel all day, but for those who like us are out from breakfast its not good value for money as eating out is so cheap!! Breakfast is well catered for and if you want something which is not available they will try and accommodative your choice..We only stayed in the hotel twice for dinner as we found that the menu was a bit repetitive and with the local restaurants offering a wider choice we decided to eat out..
The hotel offers a massage service which for a full body massage for an hour was about 700 rupees- which was good value for money and she was brilliant.
Overall this hotel is was a lovely place too stay for our first trip to goa and would not hesitate to recommend it too others..

Situated just approx 200 mts from Candolium beach, this property is very beautiful with elegant & spacious rooms & attached kitchen.The villa style hotel is painted with riot of different colors, swimming pool is well maintained & bar properly stacked up.
Though I feel the management could have kept more options in breakfast,I would give 8/10 to this hotel

Room Tip: Take the rooms opp swimmin pools, C3 or C4

We flew across half a world to find ourselves in an eartly paradise!
Rooms were great - I value cleanliness over spaciousness and that´s what I got.
The staff was amazing - they sorted out all kinds of problems in a flash.
The hotel organises some events,but you can easily pop out to the nearby town for a bit of a nightlife.
What I did was stay at the nearby beach and sip drinks. For two weeks.
In a word: awesome!

This was our third and final visit to ASR and as many recent reviews suggest they are cutting back on staff and the buildings are becoming jaded and worn . Upon our arrival at the hotel on the 27th March our first impression was the sight of around 50+ teenage school kids in the pool mostly fully clothed without any supervision . This resulted in the pool being unserviceable for 2 days after several flushes to remove all the filth and detritus. It did not start very well and the fact that the manager gave us all complimentary battered prawns as compensation was laughable .
The food is still as good as any local shack and restaurant in Candolim and could not be faulted .The waiters earn their money and speaking to one of the waiters(no name to prevent repercussions ) he said that he is covering 3 jobs . Security is evident however if you return to the hotel after 12 you need to wake them up at the entrance and at reception to obtain your key . We checked early at 4:30 am and both were sound asleep .Thefts are still a risk and we were made aware of several bag snatches .Walking out of the hotel to the beach is like walking on to a rubbish dump with evidence of oil on the beach from the River Princess which has nearly gone. We preferred Bonos shack which is off beach road however a Russian tourist was drowned in the very dangerous sea on our second week .Candolim is still ok but having used the Thompson back to nature trip and visiting Kola beach in the South we had a taste of what Goa beaches used to be in the North maybe 30 years ago . This may sound like a negative review but the hotel is very good for Goa ,but the feel of Candolim has changed and having visited there for 6 years enough is enough and we are trying the South next year . If the Police would acknowledge that a crime problem exists this would give confidence but having had the experience of a bag snatch and talking to other people who have also been robbed they pressurize the victims to declare that it has not been stolen but lost ! This no doubt massages there crime stats . De Souza Group need to invest in the hotel otherwise there loyal regulars will try else where .

Room Tip: A Room on a first floor is more secure eg A3,A4 not A1 ,A2
