“Home Away from Home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2011

We visited the Casa in Jan- 2011 for 4 days and I must say that it was a grand stay. I booked this hotel based on the earlier reviews on this very site and then was further impressed with the hotels website. It is nicely made as the place is.

This is a very nice boutique hotel located right in the happening place of Calangute, however; still manages to maintain a signature of privacy from the hustle of the area. The place is very aesthetically developed and with absolute attention to detail which is very much like me, so thumbs up for that. I could notice that hotel logo is embedded in the corners of the floor tiles within the rooms. All of the furniture, accessories are antique and go very well with overall aesthetics of this place.

I booked this place well in advance and got a good deal. The booking was swift and as promised everything else also indeed was right from the assured pickup until the drop to the airport. The hotel is very much close to the beach and an easy walk can take you right on the Calangute beach. Inside the hotel, the pool is clean and nice and so are the rooms. There is a nice stock of consumables available to please everyone’s tastes. The food is decent, and though not a wide variety, whatever on the menu is cooked well. The breakfast laid each morning was good enough. We spent one evening at the bar in the gardens and had a good time.

Finally, last but not the least, THE STAFF, just one word, FANTABULOUS. Each member of the staff is very cordial, helpful, and gets things done for you with a broad smile as promised. I personally would like to name everyone, however; I do not want to mistake inadvertently missing anyone as everyone is on toes to make your stay a memorable one. So, KUDOS! To the management for hiring a great workforce, you all are doing a wonderful job and a BIG THANK YOU! As said in the title, a home away from home which goes in hand with the hotels tagline and indeed would come back to this Casa again.

We stayed here for 2 nights, staff were helpful, rooms very spacious and clean. The grounds were spotless, lovely pool, great location. The hotel offer free bicycles to get around town, we spent a day cycling thru the madness of Calangute and Candolim whilst seeing the lovely surounds and villages along the way. Breakfast was great and although Calangute is extremely busy the location of the Hotel is excellent and once inside the grounds it is very peaceful. The beach is a 5-10 min walk, safe area to wander thru the streets. Really funky bars nearby. I would stay here again.

Stayed in casa Severina with wife for 4 nights. Time just run away. It was so relaxing. Room were too good. Resort staffs are friendly and responsive. I got what i was looking for i.e peace of mind and away from crowd.

Few improvement.

More options in breakfast/lunch/dinner would be good. (The reason for less option could be that people most probably prefer to eat outside resort)

It will be the best if you can regularly suggest 1st time visitors about sight seeing and some local info etc.

Casa Severina is wonderful. Rooms are spacious, with authentic Goan furniture. Staff are friendly, and their is a real family atmosphere. Swimming pool clean and easy to spend the whole day there. Restaurant is good, with good range and quality of evening meals. An oasis in Calangute that has a really good vibe. Perfect for those who want to relax and do nothing in a pleasant environ.

The hotel is an excellent place to stay in Calangute in Goa. It is about a 5 minute walk from the beach which has excellent water sports and shacks. The rooms are luxurious and reasonably priced. The staff are courteous and helpful. The swimming pool is excellent - clean though small.

I will definitely try to stay at this place again!

I was visiting India after 3 years for my wedding and just had 4 days for honeymoon. Goa was an obvious choice as I don't get enough SUN or SEA in Chicago...
Finding a resort in GOA is like finding a gem from coal mine. My first choice was Taj Exotica as I am a Taj Member. The Price was around 9000/night for 2 for a regular room.
I came across this resort while I was checking out trip advisor and I was really skeptical after looking at the price. I thought this place was value for money and a perfect destination for my honeymoon.

Booking:
It is difficult to book the place as you can't book it online using your credit card. I wired them half the amount in advance and got an email back in 1 hour with all the confirmations from Mr. Johnson. I was booked in Deluxe Suite for 4830 that is 1/3 of taj.

Resort:
Around 45 mins. from airport. Villa style small heritage resort with 17 rooms. 2 min walk to bch or you can use their complementary cycles for commute. Beautiful garden and a small pool which is big enough for 17 room hotel.

When we reached there I was told that as I am on my honeymoon they have given me free upgrade to Casa Andre their only Luxury Suite. It was one of the best suites I have stayed in till date. balcony, bed and bath excellent. Please have a look at the pics of the suite.

This is the only place where you get what you see on their website.

Staff:
All the staff at the hotel are very friendly and go out of their way to make your stay a memorable one. Special thanks to Johnson( you are one of the best manager I have met and a very kind human being)
Wet towels, breakfast, towel decorations in room, cleaning, pool supplies, candlelight dinners, wakeup calls, transport services you name it and they do it with a smile.
My wife described their staff in a very nice way: "smiles... genuine smiles everywhere. Goan hospitality at its best"

Food and Bar:
Decent selection of wines and spirits. Enough choices of cocktails if you want to try something new every day.
They have perfect snack and breakfast menu and I loved the breakfast they provided complementary.
Limited food choices and I do not blame them as 90% of guests have their meals at specialty dinners or bch shacks.
Very few guests know that their cook can make excellen Goan food which is off-menu and you have to request for it.
They can arrange candle light dinner with special menu in your balcony if you want to surprise your spouse. We did it and paid around 750Rs that is less then 20$ for excellent food.
P.S. some one commented that Veggis will be disappointed. We are Veggis and we had blastttttttttt. You just have to ask for options.

Lot of other guests have written tons of things so I don't want to repeat it.... I just want to say....
Hey Johnson and team......great job.....keep it up.....and see you all soon......

We stayed at Casa Severina on our holiday after marriage. The rooms are spacious and well lit, the bathrooms are clean and have well thought out accessories, the service staff is pleasant and eager to help. The facade of the Casa is very beautiful and welcoming and the pool is a cute one. All in All, it was a wonderful week long stay at the Casa. We will definitely visit again. Thanks to Johnson and crew.
