We were visiting Goa in July 2013 and wanted a hotel very close to calangute/baga as we had some work in calangute itself. After a thorough and confusing search online ( we are TAJ loyalists), we decided on Citrus as it was part of a chain and we expected a certain standard of service. The hotel came as a pleasant surprise. We booked them through cleartrip.com and got reasonable rates given that it was a last minute booking.
The hotel is well made and very clean. The rooms spacious and excellently done up. The mini bar well stocked. Almost all rooms ( atleast what I could see) came with an attached balcony with a seating for two. A few rooms overlook the pool. The breakfast was a fairly large spread. The restaurant is right by the pool with seating options outside so that was fun. I must mention that the service by the staff almost came close to the service one gets at the Taj. Always a smile, well groomed and well uniformed the service stood out...everywhere, be it the restaurant staff or the housekeeping staff. If we had an issue , it was with a couple of guests who followed absolutely no etiquette especially in the pool. I must say that the hotel was quick to resolve the issue.
The hotel is walking distance from Calangute beach ( 5-7 mins walk). If you desire you can also walk to Baga - 25 mins. Else there is a bike/car rental shop/taxi stand just outside the hotel.
I only wish they's offer free wifi!
I'd definitely recommend the hotel.
