“Only positive point is good location”
Reviewed April 3, 2012

It is one of the best places in calangute, if location is the sole criteria for judgement. Rooms are ordinary and they definitely require pest control. Clealiness is not up to the mark. Pool is a big joke, just like an extra large tub made 7 feet deep. First thing that comes to your mind when u reach the pool is "water needs cleaning". Room service is again ordinary.

If u like bread toast, paranthas or idli vada as breakfast, this is good place for u.

The only point going in its favour is the location. Whether u look for pubs, eateries, shopping centers, U'll find everything in close vicinity. Beach is hardly 1 km from the hotel.

It can be a good budget place for family stay, just dont keep ur expectations high.

Room Tip: don't pay extra bucks for pool facing rooms......thr is hardly any difference....

We recently stayed at this hotel which was recommended by a travel agent. We stayed in a suite room which is very much affordable. Suite that we stayed was neat and the bathrooms were spacious and clean. Hotel staff is very friendly and helpful and overall hospitality was excellent. We were infact amazed by the quality of service by the hotel management. Breakfast was just ok. The hotel located 'centrally' is actually bang in the middle of calangute market and the famous calangute beach is at walkable distance (~500 mts). They also have a small swimming pool which is maintained well. We would actually like to stay with them again whenever we go back to Goa and I sincerely hope that management is able to maintain the show and give people like us some wonderful lifetime memories. Overall its worth the money and for someone looking at a economical price, just go for this hotel.
Cons: Property looks old from outside.

If you're going to stay at Anup holiday homes then I would say welcome to hell. If there is no hotel in goa available except for anup holiday homes then I suggest not going to goa. They should rename it to "cockroach holiday homes". The place is INFESTED with cockroaches. I left the room and bathroom lights ON all day even when I wasn't in the room. I know thats not very environment friendly but I can't tolerate cockroaches running around my room. We booked 2 hotel rooms and after the first day my friends shifted to another hotel as their view outside the window was that of a GUTTER with the worst smell and mosquitos. In my room there would be 3-4 BIG cockraoches and in the bathroom about 10 small ones. The staff are nice and the bed was comfortable but I think you get that everywhere these days. The swimming pool is like a pond so dont get excited. For breakfast we got bread and butter, tea/coffee and puri and some bhaji (SAD breakfast, Fruits are quite important for breakfast I feel and the other items could be missed). SAD HOTEL in short. DO NOT go here however cheap you feel it is. I don't know how people have said good stuff about this place.

We ordered water at 4 or 5 am every morning and on the last day the staff told us

Room Tip: Sleep on the streets but not here

I went to stay at Anup with my wife and two sons. I must say that the experience was great. The most notable thing was the courteous nature of the staff and their quality of service. We were treated like VIP guests. The locaton is also very convenient - quite close (walking distance) from Calangute. I would recommend this hotel for families.

We recently visited Goa on a large family tour of 25 persons , and had made our group accomodation at Anup Holiday Homes, and to our surprise ( comapring previous Goa tours ) we were taken by surprise to the warm , codial and excellent hospitality extended by Mr Desai and his Support staff at Anup Holiday Homes. Right from very early morning pick up to daily meals , sight seeing , excellent homely food to drop till the station all was in perfect condition and had not to be followed up. The food quality was excptional and very different from typical goan food . A very nice place to be with family , very secure , clean rooms and cooperative staff. However the rooms need a bit of renovation in near future. Excellent walkable distance from Calangute main beach , market area at reach. A big thank you to Mr Desai and his team at Anup Holidays for making this tour a memorable one and more importantly we now dont have to worry next time for locating hotels / services / food etc and are sure a call to Anup Holiday Homes and we are taken care.

A very comfortable place to stay. Clean and really close to the Calungute beach. Affordable tariffs even in the peak season! Really good room service facilities, swimming pool and the restaurant. Will surely stay with Anup holiday homes again!
