We spent a couple of days with our large extended family. It was great fun, with the children in the pool the whole day and at the beach the whole evening.

The hotel is set in a locality where the people are very friendly and helpful, and the rickshaws do not overcharge you.

The property is well maintained and service is satisfactory.

Room Tip: Choose a room on the ground floor, if you are travelling with elderly folk. The rooms facing the poo...

Greetings from Royal Palms at Benaulim Goa.
I am John Peter and I am thankful and grateful for the reviews that you have commented upon.
Yes, I certainly agree that part of the resort is in need of renovations which is being carried out in stages.
We have 175 apartments at Royal Palms of which 104 have already been refurbished the remaining apartments will be completed in a span of one year.
I assure you that two years down the line this resort will be fully refurbished and will be a different place.
We are also currently in the process of having the entire resort connected with internet facility.
I am very much glad that you enjoyed our restaurant and the beach

I don't know why people says it as a 5 star property, it was like 4 star property. The facilities they provide are not even 4 star. Some times the electricity trips and they do not have the immediate back up for it.
But over all experience was good.
It is preferred, that you take room near swimming pool on upper side at it is better than the rooms near reception,
And be ready to pay the bill more then expected, as they even charge for refilling the coffee and sugar pouches.

Room Tip: try the rooms near upper side of the hotel, as it is good there

We stayed at Royal Goan Beach Club at Royal Palms, Benaulim, Goa in May 2011 for six days. We got 1 BHK suite with all kitchen utensils. Room was quite good. Resort also has in-house shop for routine daily needs like mineral water, ready made food items, dairy products, ice-creams etc. and it is available at MRP price only, no extra charges. We have very good experience with Restaurant as well. Delicious food was served at quite reasonable price. Overall it was very good experience.

Room Tip: Pool side rooms has better view.

I came with my parents. They gave us personal guide who took us for all what we should eat and see. So, I'm very grateful to them - it helped me to love India even more and especially it helped to my parents. They still remember that trip.
Rooms are like flats, with bedroom, hall with sofa and kitchen. Personnel everyday changes your bed. Very clean and pleasant place.

We had booked RGBC's property for summer vacations 2012 under some business promotion deal that they had. It's a huge property with various category of rooms ; I guess I would have got "economy class" due to availing the business promotion offer.

No worries though - the rooms were clean, spic and span and everything was working. Easily the standards of a 4 star luxury hotel and while the construction is done in a manner that is un nerving from outside, once inside the resort, its a closed gated community kind of feeling. The room service is normal goan standards - a tide slow but since you are on a holiday, you dont mind the slight delays. The important thing was that all the facilities they had were working properly !! The swimming pool was clean, the games room had all the stuff games rooms are supposed to have and the resort staff kept on holding various events for the guests every day at various times to keep the guests entertained and occupied.

Even the small kitchen cabinet was nicely stocked so that we could prepare snacks, tea/coffee etc at room only. The resort even has a small kirana shop inside the premises so that you could buy stuff like maggi, bread, milk etc without going out of campus.

My family thoroughly enjoyed the stay. Even the attached restaurant was able to dish out tasty food at extremely reasonable prices. Would definitely love to go back !!!

This resort could become one of hot property had there staff and other amenities improved. Attitude of staff is not commendable. rather need a change. rooms are good and comfortable but house keeping staff have miserable attitude.

Room Tip: select a room near pool area and on ground or first floor
