The basics - clean, accommodating, comfortable, convenient, reasonably priced - all there. What made our visit amazing was that every member of the staff was amazingly friendly and went well above and beyond for any and all of our needs. Thank you for a great vacation!

This is an RCI resort situated at a 10 minutes brisk walk from the beautiful South Goa beach of Benaulim, where the sand is clean and white, and you can walk for miles on end.

The 48 units of the resort are ringed around the pool.The units on the ground floor consist of a large living room area with a TV, fridge and kitchenette. Conveniences in the kitchenette include gas, electric tea maker, toaster, nonstick pots and pans, good crockery and cutlery. (Very useful if you are travelling with little children or babies). The bedroom is large and comfortable.

The two bedroom units on the first floor consist of a very large living room area with a kitchenette, which also has a micro oven. A staircase leads to two bedrooms and a bathroom on a higher floor. The second bathroom is adjacent to the living room.

The shop in the resort is thoughtfully well stocked with most everyday items, at reasonable rates.

Service was excellent and friendly, and there was a genuine desire to make the guest's holiday fabulous.

Many indoor games are provided in the recreation area.

The children were really sorry when our visit ended and no one was surprised.

The Royal Goan is literally a home away from home and allows you the comfort facility of a suite and the freedom of a resort. Stayed there with family and was pleasantly surprised that they were most courteous and very well staffed. Given the long drive we had it was good to have a restaurant. the kitchenette allowed me to try a had with my culinary skills much to the delight of the children!. the Ladies just enjoyed the OFF time! Pool was good - though I don't swim- the kids loved it. The feni is good - victuals are all fine and the staff most helpful. All in all a very pleasant experience and would love to go back! If you dont have your bnose in the air, and love a good experience , this is your place.

A very cosy hotel with all rooms facing the pool.
Very nice a friendly staff. Special mention to the staff around the pool who were always attentive to the children playing and swimming.
the location of the hotel is very convenient to the beach and to nearby Colva/Benaulim beach.
Price of the room service is reasonable and the store is well stocked.
Improvements can be done on the following.
Change the TV's to Flat Panel, and putting an additional TV in one of the bedrooms.
Create some more activity place for the children.
All in all a good place to relax and refresh.

On arrival you were met with excellent friendly staff and they maintained it throughout the stay.
The one bedroom was large with excellent A/C - two in total. House keeping were brilliant. Room service was great at bringing the food but slow at clearing away the dirty pots. TV was a little small for the large room, none in the bedroom. WiFi available in the room (small charge) but they have to give you the password, not sure why!!
Shop on site competitive prices but limited food if self catering.
Spa on site but a little expensive considering you are in India where other prices are cheap compared to Europe.
Pool was clean, lifeguard all the time, swim up bar which you needed as the pool was very warm, not very refreshing.
The location is 15 minutes from a very long sandy beach, the sea is a little cloudy looking. A few good beach bars serving good quality cheap food and drink. Walk through the Taj to get to the beach, it is shorter and you miss out the shop sellers.
South Goa is very quiet - 2 restaurants outside the hotel but then you start struggling for any others.

Room Tip: Try to get a room straight on to the pool.

Dear Mr. Terrence,

Thanks for your positive feedback. I remember being present at the time of your check-in and you were very happy when your room was given immediately. Coming to WIFI we don't give the password as it can be leaked to other guests staying in the resort as we charge a minimum charge per room.I have briefed the F&B Manager in regards to food pots clearance where he has assured that it won't be repeated.In regards to TV very soon we are replacing them with new latest models. Hope to see you again soon and assuring you in advance of a very comfortable stay.
With best regards.

The location of this hotel is good a 15 min walk from a very nice beach, the staff at this resort are friendly, The grounds are kept well and presentable and the resort has some good facilities.
The accommodation is basic and in need of updating but overall comfortable. On the down side, we didn't find the accommodation to be very clean on arrival with crisps from previous occupant still on the floor, the pool side bar is good and well priced but they never on multiple occasions gave us our change, all be it not a huge amount of change I consider it up to me to decide if someone keeps it or not, on challenging this at the bar they spent some considerable time looking for change. They close the restaurant when they have event evenings which limits your choice of food, which forced us to eat out on many occasions. We did not use the pool due to the number of people eating in the pool. The spa was good but the 90 min massage was cut short to enable a steam bath which we didn't want, 2nd spa requested not to have the steam bath and it was still not the full time. Breakfast was not bad but never right, cold one day forgot items another , again no change, final day we gave up and didn't have breakfast. Overall I don't feel that the resort is bad just needs lots of little things tweaking. Could have been so much better. Friendly management who were approachable, with a few tweaks this could be a good value holiday.

Dear Ms. Lindsey,
Greetings from Royal Goan Beach Club at Benaulim !!!
It is indeed my pleasure and privilege as the General Manager of the Royal Goan Beach Club , to thank you and Mr. Jonathan personally , for choosing us as your home away from home on your vacation and we enjoyed serving you both.

I once again take this opportunity to thank you for taking your valuable time and patience in notifying our short comings and putting your suggestions to us. I also take this time to assure you that all the points you had mentioned will be looked into and acted upon. I remember sitting with you both during your stay and giving you clarifications where you were convinced to a certain extent. You also mentioned to me that you were enjoying your stay beside these shortcomings. Anyway I would like to justify on certain issues which you mentioned like change not given back at the pool side. I had told you that there was a shortage of coins and the staff should have explained to you regarding this and given assurance of paying it later which you agreed for the same. Our restaurant is always open during all theme nights except Sunday being Buffet night with live band by the pool side but we do keep Room service open on this ocassion. I have already briefed the F&B Manager to look deep in to the service of the guest. Coming to the Spa I inquired with the staff where they told me that only 5 mins. were used for steaming. Any way no excuse I have briefed the staff not to cut short any time from the usual duration. Coming to the pool there is a special bar counter in the pool where the people eat, not everywhere. I fully take the blame if your Room was not perfectly clean at the time of your arrival. I have already given a sound briefing to the Housekeeper on the same.

Thanking you once again and looking forward to seeing you back here again in the near future.
Also assuring you of a perfect stay the next time you come. Please give us a chance to prove ourselves.

With best regards

This was our first visit to Goa and the Royal Goan Beach Club. We decided on a week in Goa to relax after a 3 week whirlwind trip of Rajasthan. Goa is very different from the northern parts of India and the Portuguese history is very interesting. The Beach Club is a pleasant 10 minute walk to the beach which is clean and extensive. The Arabian sea was so warm that I thoroughly enjoyed our dips most mornings. The resort has a pool which is sparkling clean, a health club with gym, spa etc. It is a small resort so we received excellent attention from all the staff. Sheeba was an absolute delight and was always helpful to us planning our days activities.The resort has a small shop which is a bonus for picking up most foods (not fruit)
The rooms are spacious and cleaned daily. All the apartments are self contained. We prepared breakfast in our room but ate at the restaurant most nights. The food was delicious and inexpensive. There are many local restaurants close to the resort. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Room Tip: All the apartments face the pool so ask for a ground floor room if possible.
