“Avoid !”
Reviewed February 6, 2014

Well, to start with, the hotel is located right on the bful benaulim beach. Unfortunately, that was the only positive of the hotel. Rooms were basicar (:P) than basic, No ventilation ( No windows) which is a must in GOA weather, Stiff beds, no room service and the list goes on. So in short, avoid this hotel, choose only if location matters, if room service, cleanliness, clean towels, SOAPS(nothing provided), ventilation, Airiness, in short if you want to have a feel good experience look out and choose from many options available within 100-200 m of beach. Also, Our neighbor's(adjacent room) was leaking heavily.. Thankfully we were saved from that experience !

Room Tip: A/C rooms look better !

Furtados,...... is a nice beach house... literally bang on the beach. Best thing is : Cheap.... Nice and cosy Rooms,,,, although very basic....but enough for the price..... near to madgaon station...

Cons: Difficult to find vehicle from Hotel to outside world... took us half an hour... as we wanted a taxi for palolem beach..,and Food is really bad....

But nice place for a calm and peaceful holiday... )

Room Tip: All rooms are at same place ... so doesnt matter ...

Right on the beach so one can just walk down to the sea. Generally clean. However no amenities at all. No place to put your toothbrush, no hot water in the shower, need to request room cleaning, fresh towels multiple times. As long as you don't expect more then just a room with beds and bathroom its okay.

Prime location, right on the beach. It was off season so got a free upgrade to their best room. Got complementary food on the last day. The only downside was that some storm knocked off the telephone line so wi-fi or credit card wasn't working. Other then that it was a great experience. It was cheap and the food was amazing for the price. Helpful staff.. so overall great.

The nature of my job entails me to stay at five star hotels atleast 4 times a month but that doesn't mean that I start comparing it to Furtados with regards to their food,service or hospitality. When I need a break to unwind, furtados is the ideal beach house for me as its simple (no frills/fuss) and functional. They have moderate sized rooms with an attached bog. I think they provide towels and bog paper but I suggest u carry or buy ur own (there are plenty of shops around). Their bar outside has plenty of alcoholic/ non alc beverages and if u need something fancy obviously you should bring your own. It is superbly located right on the beach front where u can stretch out, relax,read all day,go for a swim or a jog and enjoy that little piece of beach area all by yourself cz during off season you might not even b able to spot the locals there. The Chaps at furtados are warm and non interfering.They just let you be...Exactly what I want!

We stayed at a nearby hotel over the Christmas and New Year period so can't comment on any aspect of the accomodation.
We ate here on several evenings, the food was very good, location right on the beach, it was usually busy with locals, a few grumpy rude Russians ( nothing new there then ! ) and also seemed to have a busy function area happening at the same time. The service was good, friendly and unobtrusive, quite prompt by Goan standards. This was by far the best shack for food on the beach, we tried several others which ranged from poor to just not give it a try. My wife and I have been coming to India for many years, and would happily return to Nelly Furtados.

This is ideally located right in front of the Beach...but very Rude Manager... We arrived in the morning at 07:30 hrs traveling in a Bus from Bangalore. We were tired and wanted our room which we booked through goibibo.com, after half an hour of requesting a staff we were allotted a room. Later, the manager arrives and tells us we do not have any booking from goibibo.com in our name, and he tells us that the accommodation voucher we have could be false ("anyone can make such vouchers in a computer!!!). Then after an Hour of fiery discussion with the manager he finds out our booking email comes to him through travelguru (which we don't care since we have booked it and we need a room to relax and freshen up).
The Restaurant opens after 8 am and there is no tea/coffee available before that...not to mention there is no room service.
Though, the food is excellent and the restaurant staff are helpful.
We stayed for 2 nights beside the bitterness while checking in but we definitely did not wanted to spoil our holiday just because of that "Manager".
