A small family-type-atmosphere near the beach in this hotel where on would think that the staff and other guests are a part of the family. The food is very good and there are also other restaurants in the near. There are good recreation facilties and everyday something exciting is going on. Of course you can have authentic Indian food and european cuisine.

Room Tip: There are 2 floors and most overlook the swimming pool

We drove down to Goa and it was difficult finding this place at night. However, after finding it, we were quite surprised at how spacious it was and the location was next to one of the finest resorts in Goa - The Taj Exotica.

We booked a two bedroom apartment, which had a huge drawing room, open kitchen with all trappings, and two great and well appointed bedrooms. The pool was lovely, so was the pool side bar. The restaurant and food, unfortunately, were not too good. But as we had all the ingredients with us (the grocery shop in the hotel was well stocked and reasonably priced). The best part is every room has a small open area where one can sit and read peacefully, The pool side chairs are comfortable and have towels alongwith umbrella's.

Staff was courteous and prompt. All in all - a great weak to spend with the family as there is some event or the other happening in the evening - for adults, kids and both. There is a play area with games and stuff to keep you busy throughout the day. Food, however needs improvement. The benaulim beach is about a kilometre away and is beautiful and clean. All mandatory water sports are there.

Room Tip: All rooms face inwards and are quite good.

I was so looking forward to our first trip to India but was totally dismayed when I saw the apartment, nothing like what we are used to in the UK, USA, Spain, Tenerife or any of the other places we have stayed at on timeshare. BUT after the week was up and we were moving onto Club Mahindra at Varca we could honestly say we had a wonderful week and the apartment didn't seem to matter that much. I had a chat with the General Manager, Savio, and I think he took my comments on board saying that the apartment lets down the whole complex as everything else is wonderful, the food, the grounds, the exterior, the shop, the pool, the staff and most of all Sheba, she was an absolute darling. I hope she finds her "Solomon". RGBC isn't on the beach and it takes about twenty minutes to walk to the beach but once you get there it's beautiful. We would go back with no hesitation if the apartments were well and truly refurbished. The place is probably one of the larger apartments we have ever stayed in but the decor is dismal and the furnishings leave a lot to be desired. The bathroom needs to be ripped out and started again. Apart from that we had a lovely week visiting the night market at Baga, waterfalls at Dudshagar and Spice Farm and elephant ride at Sahakari. We had a wonderful time with no "Delly Belly".

Stayed at the resort for a week at the end of September 2012, the weather was warm, the effective airconditioning in the room was welcome. The pool was enjoyable and the Margaritas at the pool bar were amazing. The staff at the resort is kind and helpful, in general. However, the food in the restraunt is atrocious, the attitude of the FB Manager and one of the waiters did not help. The restot restraunt claims to be a Chinese restraunt, but could not serve one edibile chinese dish, even the goan food lacked authenticity, if once you liked a dish and decided to repeat it, the next time it was horrible, could not even serve a decent omelette for breakfast. The food situation spoiled the week for us, as we had no plans to cook in our apartment and goa taxi union is such you have to dish out minimum of Rs.900/- to get to a restraunt which may be only 4kms away. Ate at the restraunt across the road a couple of times and also at Taj Exotica which was nice as we could walk to the beach and wander around the property at lesuire, beware RGBC is not near the beach and one has to walk around the Taj property to get to it, which I did not enjoy in humid weather. The spa is worth a mention, it was very professionaly run, reasonably priced and I enjoyed my massages thoroughly, special mention to Sonika the masseuse, she was wonderful. Beware in this season of groups of men travelling without their spouses, who tended to be rowdy and disconcerting to have around. The apartment was satisfactory and the resort inspite of the drawbacks did have a certain "je ne sais quoi"!

In regards to food I am sorry that we could not satisfy you much but I can assure you that we are totally working on it. In terms of F&B Manager's attitude I guess it was pure misunderstanding. I am sure he must have not explained things in terms of food to your satisfaction. I am sorry for the same. On the positive side I am happy that you liked the Spa and the Margaritas. I can recollect interacting with you several times during your stay where you would give me many suggestions too.Thanking you once again and looking forward to seeing you soon, back here again in the near future.

The RGBC may not be the flagship of Royal Resorts, but it arguably has more charm than any of the others. It is small enough to offer an excellent personal service to its guests provided by an inspirational manager, Savio Fernandes. A sparkling pool is the centre-piece of the resort's inner garden and it is pleasant to lie under a shaded umbrella while using the facility of the pool bar and the pool. What really impressed us about this facility was the excellent and friendly service from every member of its staff. Its location is 15 minutes walk to a pristine beach and there are an abundance of good eating establishments around the hotel - which has its own well-run multi-cuisine restaurant. A small shop is located in the resort grounds and provisions are made for self-catering. Some upgrading is required in some of the apartments and the main concern was the lack of non-slip tiles or a safety hand rail in the shower. Upgrading is taking place on a scheduled basis with new tiles etc. We look forward greatly to returning to the RGBC where we spent one of our more pleasant weeks in all the holidays we have ever taken.
