“Home away from home...”
Reviewed March 12, 2012

We came to know of Sandy's service apartments after an extensive search for service apartments and its a choice we think everyone reading this review should make. We started living in a 1 bhk at Keiren Park after spending 2 days in a guest house and now we feel we should have stayed there from day 1. The owner was extremely courteous and helpful. The kitchen helped us save a ton of money since we could cook our own food. However, the best part was the fact that almost everyday the apartment was cleaned while we were out relaxing at a beach somewhere!!! We will definitely be going back there when we return to Goa, advise you to do the same....

Room Tip: Try to get one near the pool...

HI All.....We were really sceptical about Sandys Service Apartment espeacially since we seen the other Tripadvisor reviews after we had already booked with them. When we reached there we were quite surprised. The apartment were ready and clean especially since we arrived earlier than expected. The owner called us almost everyday to check if we were comfortable we could'nt meet him in person though. The pool is good and place is quite nice and calm. The best part was that we could make our own breakfast in the kitchen provided in the apartment and thus managed save some money which we could spurlge on other things. The care taker could speak little english but we managed. We had our train in the evening but the owner let us stay till 2pm whithout charging any money. Will definely come back.

Hi again....

Had been two years since I lasted visited Goa friends were getting married all around me and we all decided to go for a one last boys only trip to Goa. Everyone wanted to be in North Goa and wanted to stay together and decided to spend little on accommodation and rest on the party money was pooled in and a friend reserved the 3 BHK apartment in Sandy's Service Apartment on a very very competitive price. Before visiting we were under the impression that this is a very good deal and understanding that we are spending pennies on the stay we were not expecting much...

Oh boy....What a mistake dingy dark rooms...One caretaker for the entire complex (Who by the way do not speak English properly)...Bathrooms with green something all around... Dirty Dirty Bathroom fixtures....Slums all around the complex with smell during the morning & evening time.

Tried to change the room but was told by the caretaker that the owner can only decide and he will not talk directly to us (Hmmm must be a big shot)...Anyways this was too much for us decided to walk out was told no refund will be made (That seems to be there standard response)... There was no part arguing move to a slightly more expensive apartment just down the road to never come back to Sandy's Service Apartment.

Room Tip: Best Tip - Have a look before you book....

Honestly I dont know where to start, but I try to give an honest review. We found on tripadvisor "Sandys Service Appartments" and asked for an offer. They answered us immediately with good service. We payed via PayPal. At the Airport we took a taxi to drop us off at the appartment. When we arrived in Kiernan Park in Calangute, Goa (there are living more foreigners as we could see), a local came and showed us our appartment.

I am not sensitve at all and not spoiled, but after we entered there was a very strange smell which caused immediate headache.

Not only that! Everything was sooo dirty that you can not imagine. But as pictures says more than 1000 words, please enjoy the photos! Hair everywhere from I dont know whom. The bed was covered with one small blanket and bedsheet. No towels, nothing. The fridge was the best in the room - it was new.

What we did? We called a taxi and escaped immediately. In a closeby internet cafe we found a other, good appartment house.

Do not book this. It is cheap but nothing else!
