We friends visited GOA Last week (9- 13 August'13) and stayed at Calangute Residency by GTDC.

Did the online reservation One night prior to we had to fly. Beach was just 100 Mts walk away from Hotel with a Pool inside the resort.

Took a Cottage with garden View Room ( Double Bed + a Sofa cum Bed, A lobby to sit outside and Admire nature, Big Clean Washroom and all facilities (AC+ fridge)).

We also got the scooty's on Hire from an Employee inside the hotel itself at 250/- per day charge.

The Buffet Breakfast served every morning is mouth watering with a different menu served each day. The restaurant "Sagar" oppsite the hotel serves good delicious food and has home delivery 2.

The People are very cooperative and Understanding. The stay was very pleasant.

Room Tip: Cottage View rooms speciallty on Ground Floors are Big, spacious and Comfortable. Have A/C fitted in...

Calangute Residency from Goa tourism is a nice place to stay on the Calangute beach.Its just on the beach so one can just walk to the beach rightaway. It also has a beautiful garden with coconut and other trees;wooden benches for seating (could have been better maintained,though) and a clean and well maintained swimming pool with clear water. We stayed in the cottage rooms which are not sea-view rooms but one can have a partial view of the sea from the balcony.These type of rooms overlook the garden. Rooms were specious,clean and tidy with good interiors.Bathroom was also quite specious and clean .Only tip for improvement in the bathroom was it could have had one more towel rack - it had just one built-in cement rack to place the towels and dresses etc. No bathtubs were there.Complimentary breakfast was okay;not extraordinarily good.The main restaurant was under maintenance so we had lunch and dinner outside.There are plenty of good shacks and eateries. One to mention specially is Brittos on Baga Beach -they serve very good Goan fish curry and fish fry.A must try.Residency staff were helpful.Market place is very near and there are many taxis/car rentals etc. available just outside the main gate of the residency so if someone is not having his/her own trasnport then this is a good place to stay.There are bike rentals also available just outside.We took the dinner cruise arranged by Goa tourism which was a nice experience to remember.Overall,a good experience.

Room Tip: Cottage room C5 was good

The Hotel/Resort is Maintained by Tourism ,therefore some maintainence problems are inevitable the staff is usually like Most Govt.Servents (Adament and Rude sometimes)

BUT ,but The Location is Superb ,specially if have a Sea Facing Top Floor Family Room(you see the Beach and Sea from your Bed).

You can visit the Beach after the Public Has Gone or before they come ,walk towards Bagha
Beach

They have Swimming Pool Also.

Location : Beach Side. If you want to be in the centre of the action this is the place to be. If you are looking for a quiet location definitely not the place.
Rooms : I stayed in the cottage which has nice spacious rooms and bathrooms.
Cleanliness : The cottage I stayed in I would give 4/5.
Overall maintenance : Yes like most other government run places this could do with better maintenance.
Restaurant : Tons of amazing shacks on the beach just close by so my suggestion would be to go there and enjoy the amazing seafood by the beach.

Room Tip: Do check out your rooms before checking in.

This is one of the best beach side place to stay in Calangute. GTDC has maintained this place very nicely. Rooms are good, though we faced some problems with bugs. But otherwise, rest of the things, such as food, location, make it very nice.. Staff is also very helpful and friendly.

Best location for stay near calangute beach. Best thing u can walk to beach at any time u want. no tension of keeping your belongings to safe (while you go in water).

You can avail facility of Goa tourism trips and it is the pickup point for their buses.

not good pool. (but you don;t require pool, beach is so near)
no resurant (out sourced from sagar)

+ve
near beach.

yet the only real irritant is the non existent restaurant in such a hotel,reminds of a government servants inability royale towards such a neglect inspite of location and touring travellers wishes to rest beside a sea beach.If this property is leased to private players,the room rents may have been doubled ,and still it may be having full occupancy year round.have got thru the positions that a good number of tourists were booked for a month in spite of no restaurant/bar facilities,it is still have great opportuinity for private players to get the entire property managed by ,after even paying for full rent for the year round to GTDC and still raking in profits.presently the staff is polite and cooperative with promptedness in service.one may find the airconditioners running even if thr rooms were vacant,due to the kindness of gtdc that the guests coming for a stay there may be comfortably cool while upon arriving the rooms.(fuming over gtdc blindeyed towards bar/restaurant availability) after all the location and property is best located
