Reviewed April 17, 2008

Just returned from 2weeks holiday at Royal Palms. Booked holiday with RCI through Club la Costa with whom we have a trial membership. Was totaly dissapointed with the cleanliness of the rooms, requested bathroom to be cleaned as toilet was soiled and walls and paintwork dirty. The rest of the place was surface clean no attention paid to detail. The grounds were well maintained, seemed more staff employed to achive this than clean rooms. Management claimed all rooms were of the same standard and promised we could look at another room at end of first week, but when we requested this no-one could remember discussing it. This hotel is featured in Club la Costa's Destination brochure which is supposed to guarantee the standard of accomodation and is also used by RCI, it makes one wonder what happens to the maintenance money paid in by members. My advice is book elsewhere.

once exams got over, we had the idea of going for a tour.we had initially thought of staying at colva residency when a times share agent belonging to royal resortd called us up through some club.

as per his offer, we got a room for 4 persons (1 bedroom, kitchen, dining and an expandable sofa which could accomodate 2) for 3 nights at just rs 2000!
that was an awesome price for a 3star.

though many negative reviewsconfused us.......we decided to go ahead

beleive me...its worth it.its much neater than expected for the above price.
the place seems to have undergone massive renovation.
service was not bad.

the one negative things are absence of elevators and watercoolers on the ground floor

old people find it difficult to climb 3 floors down to fill a bottle of water

the restaurant is expensive and not worth it

the best way to enjoy your holiday at this place would be to hire 2 wheelers available opposite the hotel for very low rent and go to benaulim beach which is a mile away

It is the [--] hotel cum resort that I have ever come across. Even a 150 Rs. hotel is better than this.
The problems are plenty, am numbering a few of them:
1) They do not serve regular water in your room. They ask you to fill your bottle from the water cooler and are adamant about it. I was staying in the 5th floor, without a lift they expected me to come down everytime I am thirsty.
2) The bedsheets, towels are dirty and full of marks.
3) Washroom was unclean.
4) They have a strange check-in time of 14:00 hrs and check-out time of 10:00 am. So you can never stay 24 hours.
5) Management and manpower is appaling. They dont listend and do not understand.
6) Expensive and you can find much better resorts in Goa; JUST STAY AWAY!!!!
