“Decent place to unwind & Relax!!!!”
Reviewed September 11, 2011

Property is decent three star resort located very near to Taj Exotica (100Mts). 45min to 1hr ride from airport. This property is not as big as the other RGBC resort at Royal palms. RGBC at royal palm (i have stayed their in 2008) is apartment block type resort and very crowded. This place is more like a resort with smaller szie as compared to the other one.

Resort in looks itself is average with their traditional boring white & blue color. Though rooms and bedrooms are very spacious & clean. They could improve little on maintainence of resort. Now the most important part BEACH is less tham a kilometer away. You can walk or hire a two wheeler like we did that we would be handy. Beach is not at crowded and same beach is shared with taj exotica resort so their is lifegaurd at all time with neat shore line. At times we were the only people in beach so you can enjoy being therre without feeling crowded and disturbed.

Restraunt at resort is not that good, food is average more like not enjoyable. Kitchen is provided in all rooms with requiste amenities. Their is a grocery shop inside resort selling from booze to daily need items for home cooking within normal rates. Pool inside the resort is ok but if resort is full it may feel overcrowded. For commuting you will need wheels either by taxi which is avaialble o/s resort (though it is expensive & u cannot enjoy Goa in a car) or on bikes/scooter. If u are comfortable driving one than it is recommended. bike is for Rs.250/day & scooter for Rs.150/day. Fuel is extra.

People Who should choose this resort-
1. Families or group of friends who can enjoy just being at resort/pool or beach.
2. People who want to enjoy beach without being disturbed & want have personal space/time at beach.
3. If you are already a member of RGBC or any affiliate.

People Who should not choose this resort-
1. Outgoing people (discos/pubs). Then you should prefer North Goa. U will find plenty theri.
2. Youngsters who are in Goa to have fun on the wild side. North Goa from this resort is 60+60Kms if u can brave the bike ride. We did for two days.
3. WHO ARE NOT MEMBER OF RGBC AND ARE PAYING BIG MONEY FOR BOOKING. IF YOU ARE GETTING ROOM HERE FOR ANYTHING MORE THAN RS. 2500-3000/DAY (IN LEAN SEASON) IT WOULD BE WORTHWHILE TO CHECK OTHER 4 STAR HOTEL.

Against proper belief that best time to go Goa is Dec-Jan (IT JUST TOO CROWDED THAT TIME & RATES ARE EXHORBITANT) i recommed to visit Goa in monssons. Whole Goa is lush green, sun is not that strong, rains are their on & off. 15min shower and then nothing for half day. Goa is more peacful during monssons, though you will not have luxury of water sports and a leeser nos. of beach shacks.

Room Tip: Prefer rooms on first floor. Should be prefrred by families & group of freinds only. Keep hotel...

RGBC Benaulim is a small, cozy resort for everday people. I have had the pleasure of visiting this hotel some half a dozen times over the last 12 years and look forward to going there again. Its got 40-50 rooms around a small pool. 2-bed units on the first floor are really large, and even the 1-bed ones are quite spacious as compared to other hotels. However, flooring needs change, maybe the bathrooms need new tiles too. Food is fairly good, we have sampled their evening buffets with good returns. South Goa beaches nearby are peaceful and relaxing (avoid Colva, please). All in all a great experience.

Stayed in the Benaulim Royal Goan beach club from April 23 to April 30. Went through train. Got one room through complementary offer and booked another through DAE for 169 US$.
The resort was neat. Rooms are excellent in my view. And with kitchen it was just a home away from home. We did not knew that we can buy all the things needed to have a homely meal nearby and hence went with lot of luggages. If you are ready to explore, a bit, just a bit, you will get almost everything at MRP within an km.
The beach was not very near and had to walk a bit but that no way a bad remark for the stay. The pool was good and the hospitality was nice.
We were taken for a trip to see another resort owned by them and had to sit for a lecture. Though its was not bad you can avoid it.
It has a SPA, small super market, restaurant etc. I saw, mostly, foreigners taking food there and most of the people were having their own homely food cooked by them. It has great worth for money and at times you get even for US$. The bad part was too high transportation cost. The cab rates were too high and due to local custom nothing could be done. But it was a great stay with family and would love to have another one.

We stayed here for a week and thoroughly enjoyed the stay. Royal Goan at Benaulim offers a lot of in house activities and games for the customers. They have an excellent spa at the hotel location which is very convenient and they run daily specials which customers can leverage. It's location and proximity to Benaulim is great and walking distance. You can enjoy all the water sports at Benaulim and some good food around restaurants of this location. Rooms are very spacious and have kitchen facilities. So great for cooking etc. They have a nice bar by the pool side and very enjoyable.

We stayed for 3 nights with 2 families . It is ideally located in south Goa . The rooms are huge , spacious and airy. We stayed in a 2 bed room apartment duplex. The best part around this time was the lovely weather . It was intermittently raining and most of the time breezy. We had a gym right next to our apartment to work out and shed off those extra calories during vacation. We didn't have our food in the China restaurant as there was not much choice for vegetarian food . The most important thing about the resort is it's service. Room service and house keeping services were very prompt and efficient . Pool was nice and clean and kiddies pool added attraction for the kids. Activity centre was well equipped with many indoor games.
Overall we had a pleasant stay at RGBC , Benaulim and would definitely recommend for your next visit to Goa.

We were referred by a friend to the Royal Goan Beach Club at Benauli. It was a family trip to South Goa and we wanted to spend a relaxed week lazing on the beach and watching the sun set.

The resort is located close to the benauli beach. Good staff and clean interiors. The rooms are spacious with a balcony, a hall, a bedroom and a kitchen with utensils. You can make tea and breakfast and cook if you need to. There is also a supermarket within the premises where you can buy milk and supplies.

Right outside the resort are a full row of shops and restaurants. And a little further down you'll find the beach!
For the same cost at North Goa you'll find just single rooms! Who says South goa is NOT a happening place?!

We enjoyed our 4-day stay and came back refreshed!
