This is a great hotel if you want to be in the city. Conviniently located even if you are on pleasure probably twentyminutes drive if you have to visit the most happening beaches.
The staff is excellent and welcoming. They have four restaurants to cater to your taste buds. Swimming pool dosent look that great but it could pass. Great Spa and gym. The rooms are nicely done a very good feel.

After a non-stop, 2 week visit to Goa where we stayed in one place no longer than two nights and travelled the length of the entire state, The Hotel Fidalgo in Panjim (or Panaji) was a welcome last-night retreat before the long flight back to London via Mumbai. After being permanently hot, sweaty and/or drenched (we went during the tail end of Monsoon in early September), the air conditioned sanctuary that was the Hotel Fidalgo, felt like entering Nirvana! Located right in the centre of Panjim, it is perfect for any traveller's needs. We also stayed at the Goa Mariott on our first night in Goa and I can honestly say that for the money (over half the price of the Marriot) it was most definitely better value for money (minus the 'cloud beds' that are in the Marriot). The rooms were priced very reasonably (£50 for an executive club room) and although very much generic Premier Inn style, were clean, comfortable and AIR CONDITIONED!!!! :) The staff were all very friendly and helpful and this hotel houses THE BEST cocktail guy ever at their bar. He was fab and mad the best cocktails with his Bloody Mary being one of the best. Breakfast was great and overall, the Fidalgo is GREAT value for money!

We visited the CNS restaurant at the Fidalgo, for lunch , while on a visit to Goa recently. At first glance, the hotel and restaurant area looked pleasant and clean. All four of us needed to visit the bathrooms to wash our hands. I was not the only one who emerged feeling dirtier! The floor was wet -all around the commode area. The soap dispenser was stuck, and there were no hand towels. The hand dryer did not properly work either. Worse still, there was an attendant who stood there and did not seem to care to 'attend'. The men in our group came out of the Mens bathroom with similar complaints - no soap!!!!!
The restaurant was disappointing too. The water glasses had finger prints on them. The windows of the restaurant were dirty, and there was a stray cat and her kitten roaming around the pool restaurant area. Amazingly, there were several 'hotel managers' in suits standing around making small talk with the staff. We should have left immediately, but were too hungry to find another place. The food was very good - despite the other disappointing areas. But, it is definitely not worth a visit - if one wants an overall pleasant experience. Don't go there!

Frequent traveler, first time to this hotel, as in the middle of the city, my friend also recommend made booking from site, when i entered hotel was not busy, i wish the lady and gave her the print out of the booking details, she asked something - she did not read it, then i told her read it, then a phone came, attend the phone and then went back - asking another employee who made phone call etc etc, i am waiting, i am talking no response or not even looking at the customer standing - then another girl came, they both were talking - i knew that the room is not ready etc after 10 mts waiting the girl who came took the documents and registered me and gave me a room. Not even a single customer.

Please train your employees who are dealing with customers, to listen to them, to look at them no need to smile - atleast respond to them.

Very bad experience from the entry itself, so i will never stay in future also never recommend anyone, whatever instructions given at the time of booking - i did not get. At reception, i told the girl to allot me a room with a good view - that also no, atleast should talk some story......

too many hotels in Goa, this is not the only one....

I entered the room, one boy followed me, he kept the luggage and then said there is a mini bar, and one list he brought to me and asked for my signature, i said what for, these are the items in the mini bar? Why should i check, is this the first thing for me to do after entering in the room? I said no, and he left


Never, Never, Never

Room Tip: do not come, place is convenient, a mistake happen to me

The hotel is centrally located in the middle of Panjim, the capital of Goa. However, beware of the cabbies outside the hotel. They have a sort of understanding amongst them and stick to the first price quoted. You can move a bit away from the hotel and get a cab/ autorickshaw there.

The hotel is quite comfortable though the standard room we occupied was a bit on the smaller side. Overall, a good stay in Goa.

Room Tip: Standard rooms are small, so if you have budgeted for it, go for a larger room.

Good Hotel with defficiencies. Room lighting insufficient. Door Bells dont work. Glass partition with door should be sliding so that it does not hit the main bathroom door causing inconvinience. The humid climate demands that toilettries should include Talcum Powder also.

Breakfast spread is good. Quality of Fish was very good. Both Indian and continental variety was found to be satisfactory

Room Tip: Executive Rooms are better.
