“Good Location”
Reviewed July 4, 2014

Location is great, if you book sea facing room then you can enjoy the sea from the balcony itself. Room needs to be more organized, need maintenance, bathroom is spacious but lack of ventilation. No restaurant service and no complimentary breakfast. But there are few good restaurants so no need to worry. There are another type of room from where you will get partial sea view these rooms are swimming facing.

Room Tip: Go for second floor sea facing rooms

We stayed in two rooms with my family at Canlangute Residency during 22nd March to 26th march 2014. The location of the hotel is superb, probably only hotel right on the Calangute Beach. From you room (if it is front facing), you can have a splendid view of setting sun on the backdrop of Arabian sea. Apart from this aspect, you have a feeling of being cheated by a Government organization due to the reasons mentioned below.
1. AC is not working in most of the rooms as I have checked a few rooms personally for an AC that works.
2. There is no lift. Although I have booked the room long back, we were provided rooms at the 3rd floor for reason unknown to us.
3. Construction work going on in full swing, producing dirt and sound of marble cutting even at 11 o’clock at night!!
4. Though their web-site indicates complimentary break-fast, you can not have it as there is no restaurant in the hotel.
5. Ill designed bed having projected part that hurt your legs whenever you move in the room.
6. Lastly, charge is quite high considering the agony you face during your stay.

Room Tip: Resort Front ( Better to avoid the hotel).

This is an excellent Hotel of GTDC. Location is too good, Balconies have great view of Calangute Beach. Restaurent was under renovation hope it will be as good as the hotel itself. Overall it was an good experience.

We travelled in December 2012, GTDC Resort located best at calangute beach, we enjoyed beach from room balcony as it just next to beach, view attaracted me the most, but the food is not at all good, once all food items are finished at breakfast time they just give Rs 75/- coupons to have breakfast at nearest restaurant where u can,t have a single dish for ur breakfast as you have to pay from ur pocket instead having brkfst including, services are not expected as this is government undertaking, the location was excellent, which can cover any negative aspect of the Resort.

Room Tip: Take Beach view rooms only cottage are not worth, so costly with no view at all.

We stayed in march in Calangute Residency. the location is superb. as it is going under maintenance AC were not working properly. We were given 10% discount while checking out. From the balcony seaview is heavenly. There were no other hotel on the sea side. The room size (RS- Rent was 3600/- per day)was not enough for a family, 2 adult, 2 children.
In goa every hotel is charging Rs 500-750/- extra only for stay(food is not included)for a child over 5 yrs. I have 2 children aged 6 & 11 yrs. Only GTDC hotels are charging rs50 per child per day. Hence we chose GTDC hotel. And we are not dis appointed....

GTDC hotel..best view,clean specious room enjoyed sea view all day.
But all ruined by 3 days Taxi strike.They have done well,setting good example.Ola cab is the savior.
We traveled with Driver Dipen-08805739357,09423311545 in his good well maintained car.
He is very helpful,needs to mention.

Pros-
Just on the beach
Specious and clean room
Good transportation(taxi stand at hotel gate and rental bike)
Big LCD TV,Fridge
Nearby market and beach shop
Lots of restaurant and beach sacks
Swimming pool and garden
GTDC sight seeing bus service depart from hotel every day at 9am

Cons-
Poorly maintained
No restaurant(under construction)
Hotel is under renovation
No hotel personal taxi service(they cant help during taxi strike,try OLA cab during strike-see website or android apps).
Reception is poor.

Room Tip: Opt for Sea view room
