We have recently returned from our 8th trip to South Goa and yet again the experience was amazing - truly did not want to leave.
We have stayed at the RGBC @ Benaulim 3 times in a 2 bed apartment on the first floor which we adore. Yes, I agree the apartments are definitely in need of a coat of paint and some tlc but they are so spacious and comfortable and to be honest we have accepted the shortfalls.
The one improvement I would love to see would be new tables and chairs on the balcony - this is such a lovely spacious area but the furniture needs updating, it's a bit tired.
However, the positives of staying at this resort certainly out weigh the negatives.
Most importantly the customer service was superb. Check-in was swift and efficient and we were welcomed by the manager by name. This is a very intimate resort, ideal for couples.
The staff were as always very professional and nothing was too much trouble, in particular the guys working at the pool bar were so friendly and made us smile!
The beach is breathtaking and having stayed at other resorts in South Goa I can honestly say the "hawkers" are far less intrusive than say at Cavelossim (although we love this resort and the RGBC @ Haathi Mahal also).
Enjoyed lunching at "The Seagull" a bit further down the beach, so relaxing and the seafood/fish are out of this world.
Highly recommended for a completely stress free and relaxing holiday. Will be going back again, hopefully this year.
