The Golden Nest - Serviced Apartments
Ranked #45 of 248 Specialty Lodging in Calangute
Reviewed January 18, 2014

Hotel was awesome, Perfect Location, near by General Store, Market for Shopping and Near to Calangute Beach. Hotel was great in all aspects just Little bit of Mosquitoes and Ants. (If you put fan on Slow you can take rid of Mosquitoes and Regarding Ants do not put anything on Kitchen Shelf). I Would rate 4 to 4.5 out of 5.

Hotel's Taxi Service was costly, I Found very cheap Taxi Service by spending some time discussing with Taxi Drivers. You can also contact these Taxi Drivers, Pranay having Santro (09823492286) and Ravi having Dzire (9823883783) both are of same group, both are very decent and nice guys not want to cheat you. I have traveled with Ravi more though, I paid about Rs. 2,000 per day for upto 8-10 hrs for Dudhsagar, North Goa, South Goa, Quite Beach Tour (Arambol, Mandrem and Morjim is a must go).

Caution: Do not ignore this, you must apply Sunscreen on whole body or atleast to the body parts which are under direct sun light to avoid having sun burn or tanning, coz I had it.

Backwater Thrills Tour from GTDC is a waste of time and money, no where its mentioned that it will take you to Tropical Spice Plantation, they wrote they will take you to an island (which is Spice Plantation and nothing else) and cost Rs. 900 per person. Instead you can take Taxi and goto DudhSagar and while returning goto Spice Plantation (will cost you same and save 1 day for you, Food not good for vegetarians, Veg. can avoid going there and save money, although Rs. 400 is not worth this)

In South Goa Tour, Other than Museum and Church nothing much there, if you want you can use that time to spend on Beach instead. Or goto Colva Beach.

All Beaches are almost similar in North Goa having same sea line.

Avoid shopping at Anjuna Beach Wednesday Market, its very costly, you can try at Calangute Market, you will get good price can bargain also and you will get much variety.

Room Tip: All rooms are good

the room was good and at a reasonable rate. just 10 mins walk to calangute beach and calangute market. value for money. we ordered tea in our room and it was 30 bucks for a small cup and not that great too. so if you are going its better to have tea outside. the lunch menu was reasonably priced.

U get a Kitchen with fridge. Ask for electric tea kettle. We purchased a 1000 watts stove.Wife made chicken salami-onion with tomato double omelette for B'fast.A balcony to sip evening beer with cedar cheese and grilled pomphret. A two wheeler arranged on hire by Taranjit. Drove down to Bagha Beach every night to enjoy the night life; to Anjana Beach-atop a cliff to watch the sinking sun sparkle its gold on the blue waters;to Fort Agwada to hear the haunted voices lost in history of the past Portuguese Settlers & what more, red wine at the Taj - Frt Agwada; to Panjim - Old Goa and merge with the old churches - bow with reverence to canonized by Rome, St Francis Xaviers, not to forget Goanese lunch at the famous Ritz Classic Restaurant.Return back to yr "Golden Nest" at 2am after an amazing candle lit dinner with dear wife for a sneak beer from the fridge.Pl don't forget the 24 hr running water and AC. 2 mts on our bike to the beach n bazaar. Boss, what else do you want @ u paid? Yes , I told Taranjit to improve on the quality of linen for bed-sheet. For those of us who can't call for room cleaning/linen changing - u'r to blame. Its a service apartment 4 heavens sake and that 2 'budgeted' . Its100% value return as a budget hotel.

The rooms are quite spacious and the location is also close to calangute beach. The quality of room service is not good but since its a serviced apartment and a budget hotel, it should not be of concern. Room cleaning is an issue as they dont care to provide it every day.
Overall Great value for money and a perfect place if you can compromise with the cons.

Good location, budget friendly, good sized rooms. Taranjit handles the bookings well and Rai who handles guests at the location is good too. He even arranged a bike rental for us.

Having listed the good points above, this is suitable mainly for revellers, bachelors, group of friends etc. As a couple we were looking forward to some quiet and peace but with so many people coming and going at odd hours, keeping their doors open, blaring TV sets, movement between rooms, it was a distant dream. Am sure the youngsters had a ball though.

Also, in the middle of the night, there was banging noise from one of the other rooms. The eye piece being unclear we were unable to understand the situation. Finally at 4am there were loud banging sounds in quick succession after which we heard a door open…apparently some guest must have returned late and was stuck outside. But it scared us out of our wits especially since there is no security in the premises. Taranjit apologised for this but we couldn’t sleep well which is the main reason for a holiday anyway.

The property is worth the price but not for people looking for a quiet stay. Maybe the scene is different during weekdays than weekends.
