I was there in March for 3 nights with my wife & 10 year old and experience was good. We took Large Ac room which was large indeed with separate sitting with TV (we never switched that on). The Resort is almost at the mid of Calangute and Baga & we walked towards both from the Beach. The Plus is the place is quite unlike most of the beach properties. Breakfast is absolutely basic and food is average. Beach bed area is raised and hawker free. Over all an excellent holiday & no complaints. & Loved the owners dogs too.

Review down to the points
Pros
---Situated in Calaguate Baga road this resorts biggest plus is its location. Main entrance is little off the road but of the other side entrances opens right on the beach
--Sun beds and seats are provided and one can have fun just viewing the sunrise sunset etc without even exiting hotel
--Swimming pool is neat clean and well maintained. So you can actually have a good pool experience.
---Rooms in the annexe area are nice big ones thought little far frm poolside.(Hotel is divided into two parts,one is where you check in other side is more like stand along houses each with 8 rooms kind) Not sure on other pool side rooms
--They have booking through makemytrip where you gets some discounts
--Scooties/Cars on rentals are all nearby and so are all the restaurants. You are staying in the middle of it all but still a little detached.
--Hotel transport for airport drop was neat clean nicely Innova.

Cons
--Hotel is in a lane and goa pretty much gets lonely/dark after 8 so if you do not have your own scooty/car all time you might be stuck inside.Though its safe one might not want to take a 15 minute walk to the main road everytime
--Room are big but amenities are pretty basic. No shampoo,mineral water,TV with bad reception ,AC with no remote.
--No wifi. Wifi is available only in reception area at exorbitant prices.
-- As its a resort style rooms you only have snacks served in the room.We never ordered any though.
--Complimentary buffet breakfast is horrible. Not sure if this was an off season effect or how, We have pav ,chola/alu sabji,omlettes/egg burji with tea and coffee.After first day disappointment,never ate anything here.

Overall this place has a premium only for it location and pool. However if you intend to spend a little more time at the hotel/restaurant and are wifi dependent I would say look elsewhere.Next time I would like to pay a little more price and go for a better serviced place.

We took 3 large ac sea facing rooms.

Pros: Rooms were pretty big.Balcony was quite big as well and view was also good. Swimming pool was very clean.

Cons: while in some rooms temperature controlled ac was there, in some it was not. Fridge was not working and replaced on request. Geyser was not working and had to call plumber. Tap for cold water was not working. While in some rooms TV provided was LCD, in others it was good old bigger ones. Cushions on the Sofa were full of dirt and could not be used. Food was very bad except breakfast (which was same everyday), sandwiches and fruit juices.

We stayed at this resort in November 2011 and weren't too happy with our stay.

Positives:
- Close to Calangute beach
- Room was a good size

Negatives:
- Rooms were dusty and toilet was dirty, even after being cleaned
- The sheets on the bed were stained
- Service wasn't too great at the reception and the bar. The owner made it seem like he was doing us a favour by letting us stay there!

I definitely wouldn't go back and stay there. I felt we got ripped off considering we were there during off peak season and for Rs 3000 a night got a dirty room and bad service!

THIS IS MY FAVORITE RESORT IN WHOLE OF GOA BECAUSE OF ITS MOST AMAZING LOCATION!
It is not a 5 star property but what makes its so special is the fact that its right on the most famous beach of Goa, the Calangute beach! Though there is more to its opulence as well.

The big question is, " what one really want in Goa"?

THE SUN, SAND, SHOPPING & SONGS!! Also the food & wine:-)!!! The Chalston beach resort is the perfect choice for a perfect Goan Holiday! It has all of the above, in addition to good rates.

The staff is outstanding! Always ready to help, pleasing, charming & smart at their job. I am greatly impressed with their service! It is a huge hotel & almost full all year round( it is open throughout the year ). The room service is quick & at par with the 5 star standards.

The rooms are quite big, spacious, there is plenty of light & cross ventilated. Locker in every room. There is a big pool with a bar, a beautifully located restaurant facing the beach & a spa(coming soon). There is car parking for those driving to Goa, for free!

The best part is, that it is close to all the best restaurants, shopping stalls/arcades, medical shops, bakeries, night clubs, in Calangute! Everything is at walkable distance.

A special mention to the reception guy, Anthony, who is very kind & always ready to help! I highly recommend this resort to everyone visiting Goa for the first time & even for those who have been visiting Goa many times! This is the perfect place to be in Goa!

Room Tip: Take a room near the restaurant on the ground floor so that the commutable distance to the beach is...

I stayed at this resort in October,2011 along with my family members.The resort is located at a distance of 42 kms from the airport at the border of Calangute & Baga beach at a calm & quite place.One can enjoy the charm of both beaches from this resort.The crowded city centre of Calangute is also within walking distance( ten minutes).Lush green gardens, a multicuisine restaurant almost on the beach and a well maintained swimming pool are other attractions of this resort.The view from the restaurant is simply fantastic.Rooms and service of the staff were very good.
Very ordinary complimentary breakfast is the only weak point of this resort.
