Myself and hubby stayed at Citrus for a week over the New Year period,we arrived early morning,shattered after a long flight,check in took no more than five minutes,a member of staff loaded our cases and took us to room 16,we were really impressed with our room,large,light ,airy,spotless,large bed,flat screen t.v (about 5 English channels),fridge,stocked with soft drinks,beers,miniature vodka etc (a fraction of u.k prices). Bathroom a good size,with walk in power shower ( hot water stayed constant the whole time we were there). After unpacking,we went for brekky,loads of choice,a mixture of Eastern and western food,eggs are cooked to order. Apart from breakfast we did not spend a lot of time in the hotel,choosing to spend our days at the beach. We did however stay for New Years Eve Gala night,WOW! What a spread!,they really went to a lot of trouble,with suckling pig,huge whole baked fish,roast turkey,barbecued king prawns,plus an array of hot dishes,starters and desserts,and to top it off,a free bar,it doesn't get better than that.We loved our week there,we are hoping to return soon and would not hesitate to stay at Citrus again. Lastly,THANKYOU to all at Citrus for making our first visit to Goa a memorable one. HAPPY NEW YEAR.

It warms our hearts to know that all our efforts into making New Years special and memorable paid off. It is feedback such as yours which helps us better ourselves year on year.
The rooms and quality of the hotel are second to none and we take great pride in it.

Hoping to see you soon at Citrus again.

The hotel is right in the centre of Calangute and I have to admit as we pulled up, I thought it was going to be noisy and not particularly tranquil, but I couldn't have been more wrong!

The hotel is lovely, the staff are fantastic, grounds are beautiful, rooms are very big and the food and service good and everywhere was very clean

I visited with 2 friends and even with an extra bed in the room, it was definitely big enough for 3 girls sharing. (We were in room 15).Lovely big bathroom with great shower. Nice swimming pool, regularly cleaned and always fresh towels available around the pool. (Not that many sunbeds but most people head out to the beaches)

As we were there for New Years Eve, we had to take a "Gala Dinner" (which most of the hotels we enquired at insisted upon) and whilst we were really cynical about this, it actually turned out to be a great night and the food was great.

A special mention though needs to go to Deepak for being very efficient when we booked but an even bigger mention to two of the staff - Subir and Hemant for looking after us really well and for always having a smile on their faces, engaging in conversation and generally being lovely people - thank you!

Room Tip: We were in Room 15 which was quiet and large

Dear Joanne,

Namaste!

We are delighted by the fact that you enjoyed your stay with us and felt that it was money well spent. In-spite of being right in the center of Calangute once inside the hotel our guests are able to relax in the tranquil surroundings of the resort.
It is heartening to note that the efforts made by my colleagues Deepak, Hemant and Subir being recognized by you, I will surely pass on your kind words to them.

Hoping to see you you again soon at Citrus Goa.

Warm Regards

We stayed here over the christmas and new year period for ten nights in an upgraded room. The cleaning, spa and waiting/bar staff were all excellent - nothing was too much trouble.

The hotel is spotless and away from the hustle and bustle. Very cheap prices too for food, minibar and laundry.

I had a scrub in the spa area which was also excellent and spotlessly clean and there are taxis readily available outside.

The only one recommendation i would say was the hotel pool area is not utilised enough - too many dining tables and not enough sunloungers - but that's not a massive issue as long as you are prepared to go down early however we also loved going to the beach which is a few minutes walk away.


Will return.

Dear Guest,

Namaste!

It is great to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us when in Goa.
your feedback on the poolside is appreciated and has been put into action. We have started a Rajasthani Fold evening on every Wednesday with dancers from the state performing for our esteemed customers. We have also introduced band which sings every weekend along with a Live BBQ & Grill counter at the venue. This I must say is quite a hit with our customers.
It is candid feedback such as yours which helps us better ourselves.

Hoping to see you again soon at Citrus Goa!

warm Regards

Great service, ideal location and good rooms/property. All these make Citrus a great choice for stay at Goa. Close to the Calanguate beach but away from the hustle bustle. The small entrance might misguide you but when you enter its a big property. I stayed there for 6 days during peak of December and thoroughly enjoyed the stay. The food was also very good. Value for money for everything. Overall enjoyed every bit of it. and a special mention of the great service provided by every staff member.

Room Tip: I stayed in the Premier -Deluxe rooms and they were good. Balcony faced the pool

Dear Ummed,

Namaste!

Thank you for your positive feedback on the hotel & your stay.
You are spot on with the fact that the entrance does not do justice to the Services and feel of the hotel. That if you ask me is a plus for us as we are able to completely turn around this perception by way of our service and attention to customer wants.

We sincerely hope to see you again soon at Citrus Goa.

Dear Mr Prasanna,

Namaste!

Thank you for your favorable feedback on the hotel. You are absolutely right about the location and accessibility of the hotel. We are in Calangute about 5 mins waling from the beach in the middle of the action. The rooms are at par if not better than most of the brands in and around our hotel.

We take great pride in our Breakfast and our food is our greatest strength along with my colleagues.

hoping to see you again soon at Citrus Goa.

Warm regards

Ticks all our boxes. A small hotel with a boutique feel, right in the middle of the busiest area. Convenient for the beach, shops - just about everything you could need. But when you step inside the gates the pretty garden awaits and is peace perfect peace. (well apart from one night when the group of teens from Mumbai had a party in their room!) Next door Sunny Travels can arrange everything for you at a great price and they are super lovely. Did a trip to Agra, Taj & Deli and then the year after Mumbai - easy, safe & fun. Great food, wonderful staff with beautiful spacious rooms. I think you'll love it, have fun ...

Room Tip: Stayed twice, once on the ground floor and once on the first floor - both lovely rooms.
