Reviewed September 3, 2012

we were a bit tensed initially after reading the reviews of tangerine but then we decided to be our own judges and good we did not trust others perception... I went with my sisters family we both took imperial suite rooms since we had kids we had amazing time the staff may not be very trained but are polit and ready to help types we went for vacation and to spend good time which we did and we realy did not crib and waste our time on ver small issues that could be ignored or dealt with in an easy manner....i love the rooms of Tangerine and also the food which we had twice and my kids loved their dal khichdi we are sure to visit again

This was my third visit to Goa in last 2 Years. I was suggested this hotel by a friends who had stayed there couple of years ago (Why didn't we believe reviews of Trip adviser). We Arrived in hotel at about 17:30 for 4 Nights and 5 days and i feel i had made a mistake choosing this resort. This is not at all look like a 3 star/4 star (as they call it) property from the entrance it self, not even from inside . There were no welcome for the guests and we got welcome drink after 10-15 min.

We stayed in Valentine Room with full advance payment (regretted) which had a good Comfortable bed however no Chair to sit apart from working desk, the room was okay-okay. But was far behind it shown on the website. My partner got some red marks on hand and on back, next day we came to know that there were bedbugs in my Bed (Horrible thing). Room was stinking and there were leaking taps in washroom. Towels were like used and never changed from years. We were not there to improve their hotel by making all these complaints, so decided to keep our mind calm.

Balcony was big however dirty and again no arrangement to sit not even Plastic Chair
Would suggest not to keep Balcony door open as Mosquitoes wouldn't allow you to sleep or do anything. Decoration of my room was good during my candle light dinner night.

They cleaned the pool the day we checked in, so i am not sure how often they do it. So i decided to stay away from pool.

I couldn't find 1 good thing about this property and i think there is thump rule "You have to keep calling to reception to get any service in our room (services like mosquito spray, water, towels etc.)"

The hotel claims that the Calangute beach is 400m from their hotel. Then why did it take more than 15 min to walk that distance. The obvious answer is that the beach is much farther form the hotel.
There's no mention on the website that it's right next door to a school that starts lessons outside with a annoy at 8am!! which spoil your romantic mood. We were not not in Goa to hear school noises.
The restaurant is filthy, food is of poor quality, breakfast is inedible we never eat anything other than Aloo Paratha (Indian stuff potato Bread). We had no choice rather than to eat pathetic food as we paid in advance for b/f and dinner. Also not much choices provided in b/f and dinner buffet. We have told by staff, kitchen is not clean and food sometimes contains cockroach.

There was no Pool bar and pool side BBQ. No arrangements to sit around Pool.

They seem to run their business by locking you in by paying for your whole trip in advance (including meals) and then locking you in for your period of stay.
I have stayed at different places in Goa and i am sure not to come at this property every again nor suggest this property to Anyone.

My worst stay in Goa so far.. Total waste of money.

Room Tip: Rooms were not good at all so can't suggest to anybody.

We recently stayed at the Tangerine resort, planning to stay 3 nights and staying a 4th night because we didn't want to leave. The family suite beside the pool was perfect. When we arrived, we were offered a complimentary drink, a tasty lunch , dinner and The breakfast was delicious. All the staff are friendly and helpful. The location is perfect, with a few of the highly recommended restaurants within walking distance. I would not hesitate to recommend Tangerine to anyone. We would absolutely stay there again.

1) Wagah Border : Really looks like a war torn place its un believable this place is couple of year old property , electrical fixture and live wires you can sit and eat with
2) AC not working : Fans are provided
3) If you are lucky you can have uncooked /un baked breakfast also...
4) Service slow.

ROOMS : Ahhh every one likes to have a relaxing rooms but in Tangerine you forget to get so ????

• AC not working.. when you inform reception / house keeping its informed AC is working as if guys who come to stay in resort they are not aware the difference of AC and non AC temperature.
• UTMOST Important : At given time you can find moist in room and flooring are wet ( water) ….. please be careful if you are going with young and older ones.. as u might have a chance to slip
• FOOD Service : vvvvvvvvvvvvvv Poor
• Bathroom Doors : already in bad shape .. if you are lucky u might get a room where in u are able to latch bathroom door.
• Basically owners have opened resort in goa for their family members.. as you will bump into guys who are related to them and you can listen sorry we have to first take care of owners guest … rest all you can wait.
• Pl guys what all commitment is given by this guys take it in writing …… this will help u .verbally many things are committed from them
• Hot water forget it.. reasons will be given its winter / rainy season so hot water is not available. But guys if you really travel any part of country during this time I hope you will never agree with this point. & specially in Goa you can find resort who give 24 hours hot water supply..

So Guys if you want to enjoy your GOA trip with leisure please avoid this. Or else you are going to have an after effect shock with commitment and services..

Good for guys with budget constrain... and after that to crib it was waste of money

the day we checked in, we waited for nearly 2 hrs at the reception, as there was some fault from the reservation side! finally we were given a GRANDDD room: no 105, instead of the elite one we booked (in our favor). well the room was stinky, damp, with mould on the walls, the ac had no remote (so no temp control), tv remote was not working, the bathroom was horribly dirty n stinky and bedsheets were stained. room was filled with mosquitoes, pool was closed (MONSOON, reason stated by the management, but believe us even if it was open...it would hv been dirty). before checking in the hotel even our cab driver from airport warned us that the hotel is horrible, owned by a sardar who doesn't pay his staff in time, so the services are pretty pathetic- and eventually it all came true over the 5 days of stay we had there.
the house keeping would jus not send people to clean the room, change sheets or do the bathroom, room service would take ages to get something like a bottle of mineral water to your room. and if the reception was contacted for these flaws, they would not respond to it too! our friends who came to visit us (in daytime) were stopped outside n not allowed to enter our room.
talking of the restaurant- wagah border, it was as pathetic as our room, or may b worse. there was no cross ventilation, ac was not functional, less space to even accomadate their own guests in off season, food was stale, services were as bad as they can get, there were flies all over the tables n food.
the management knows how poor their services are, and so they take the whole payment in advance (half on reservation and half on arrival), so you land up being stuck for this poor choice of yours, made bacause of the deceptive pictures they have put on their site. even the location mentioned is not correct, the entry to the reception has to b on foot, due to the cramped space in front with no entry for cars.

Overall the hotel is not worth staying in, better to stay in a lodge than go for tangerine boutique hotel.

Room Tip: please just don't choose this place!!!
