“Budget stay”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

The room was clean and an OK type.
The owner Mr. D'souza was a friendly man. And as said in the other comments the attender Rajeev, I don't think is a person with much problem. But ya if you are to get him on the phone, you'll have to call him at least 5 times. All together it was a comfortable stay.

Room Tip: Choose rooms closer to the pool

Good place that allows 2-6 people's accomodation at a fair price for the services provided.
Situated in a peaceful residential area but just a stones throw from the places you would want to be - like
Calangute and Baga.
I only wish they had a cancellation policy , too.
Good apartment with kitchen.
Was surprising that towels, soap weren't provided. But that could be overlooked because we did have a hasslefree stay.
Thanks.
Would surely recommend this place to others who would want a good place at a very decent rate.

Dont expect for any kind of service from that S/B RAJEEV. Dont offer him for any kind of service he generally charged more that 200% of actual cost whether bike or any other thing.Talk less 2 him. For any kind of service call Mr.D'suza.

This was our second visit to Sandy's Service Apartment. We had a very pleasant stay. The owner Mr Dsouza allowed us to check in 30 minutes earlier without any charge. Well they now have a policy of a refundable security deposit of Rs 1000/- for the apartment which is refunded on check out. Thankfully they do not charge for using the kitchen services in the apartment which has not been our experience in other places. The caretaker was helpful enough to arrange for a car to pick us up and drop us to the airport. Keep up the good work Sandys.....

Room Tip: Speak to the owner directly for any issues

I went to this apartment between 24th and 27th of December 2012. The apartment was good, the price was in sync with the average rate in goa at the time. But I had some shift in plans, so i had to come a day early and leave a day earlier than the one I had booked. Great, I was exploited by the manager. Great start to my vacation. Over the next few days, I enjoyed my stay and was hoping to leave Goa in a happy way, bu I dont think the Care-taker could bear seeing me happy. So they tried to exploit us further by chargin us Rs. 150/day for cleaning 5 spoons, 1 pan and 5 plates. Also, they tried to charge us Rs. 200 for washing a towel, which they alleged us to have painted, whereas we had just wiped our feet with it. Isn't that what a towel is for? Well, besides that, the towel had an MRP of rs. 50 so washing a towel surely did cost us more than the towel itself. So, My advice, talk to the care-taker and get it in writing from him about the charges for the cleaning of the room, which btw, they do only once in 2 days, regardless of how much sand from the beach comes inside SANDys service apartment. In all, the room was good, but Hospitality is what earns respect and re-visitors.

We were in Sandys 19.02-07.03.2013´. Positive things were the size of the apartment,( living room, bedroom, kitchenette and bathroom.)and the quiet location. In the prochure of the apartment it was mentioned that there will be hairdryer, microwave oven and iron in every room: but none of these were there. In the kitchen there were no knives,spoons and forks. We were at that place 16 nights and the cleaning lady visited only once, the bed linen were not changed at all and the towels were changed only once, when I asked! It was impossible to reach the caretaker: we saw him only three times: when we came, after a week visit and when we left. When we cheked out, nobody came, but fortunately we saw the caretaker outside on the street area, when we allready sat in taxi to go to the airport. I think that the caretaker Rajeev did not mind at all, what was happening in the building. So there were no service at all. The caretaker Rajeev left bad taste in my mouth, he did not respect the visitors at all. When after a week visit we saw Rajeev (he came with the cleaning lady) my husband did show him a broken aqueduct, but he did not take care at all about it. The pool area was very gruesom, desolate, it did not attrac at all. There were only one broken sunbed! And no umbrellas. Only good thing in that apartment was the size of the rooms and quiet location.

since 2007 every year month of feb, Goa for me is the most awaited holiday destination. i have almost stayed in many resorts here.. but sandy's is the best i have ever stayed. feb2013 was the second time i booked sandy's, and off-course if it was the second time i booked here it means that i knew what i was booking.
it has well furnished a.c rooms with tv, kitchenette, swimming pool, easy and close access to the beach belt(calangute, baga, candolim). and to top it all this all comes with a reasonable pricing.
M LITTLE SURPRISED TO SEE THE COMMENTS ABOUT THE CARETAKER. WHO EVER READING THIS, TRUST ME THE CARETAKER IS SWEET AND HELPFUL. THE ROOMS WERE CLEANED REGULARLY AND MAINTAINED WELL, OPP TO OUR ROOM WE SAW THE GUESTS UNNECESSARILY ARGUING WITH CARETAKER BUT HE KEPT HIS COOL. IN SHORT HE WAS AT HIS BEST BEHAVIOR TO WHAT I HAVE SEEN. GO AHEAD AND BOOK SANDY'S WITHOUT THINKING, IT WILL NOT DISAPPOINT YOU!!!
