we have stayed a the santa monica resorte 6 times now and have enjoyed everytime. the last time we went to goa was in 2012, the staff at the hotel are very friendly, kind and considerate, and polite. the hotel food is good, the hotel could do with a lick of paint but is clean and comfortable, bed linen changed and towels every 2nd day. have stayed in other hotels in calangute and would not go back to them. but will go back to santa monica, it is off the main road so is not as noisy but the dogs do sometimes wake you up. goa is a fantastic place to visit love it everytime we go.

Room Tip: rooms at the back are cooler because don't get the daytime sun, rooms 104, 204 are the best

This was the third time that my wife and I have used this hotel in four years. All I can say is that the staff are still as friendly and they can't do enough for you. The reception manager even booked some of our trips for us.

The rooms are clean and seem to have been decorated since our last stay, we didn't find them bad before. This is a very good budget hotel with excellent staff, in a good location.

Room Tip: Ask for pool view, however if you are unlucky enough to get a room at the back all you have to do is...

We went to Goa last week & came today.. Santa Monica.. Hmmm.. When I checked in, I didnt find it that good & specially the room that was alloted to us was a little squeezed one, but next morning fortunately we were given Room # 005 which was a way better. Food wasnt that good initially as its hard for Goans to relieve North Indian taste buds, however the food got better everyday once the staff was explained our taste. Location of the resort is pretty good. Calangute & Baga beaches are just on 10 mins drive, have a small shop nearby for tit-bits & Indian Tailors Botique just next to the hotel (who fixed my dress fantastically). Front Office & House keeping staff was very helpful & efficient. And offcourse loved the pool. Overall a nice experience.

Recently been to Goa and stayed for 2N. Overall a very decent and quite place to stay. Value for money.

The property is clean and comfortable. It has a swimming pool which is normally filled by foreigners. Rooms are spacious, clean. Service is good but not upto the mark. You have to ask for things which is sometimes irritating when you are out for holidaying. But once you are settled, it feels very homely and nice.

The refrigerator is full with water, beer, cold drinks etc. everything chargeable. Good hotel to stay for a couple, family.

Did not check the restaurant since it was non-veg. The location is good with Veg restaurants nearby. The place is centrally located with Calangute, Baga in one direction and Sequerim, Condolim in another.

I have stayed at the Santa Monica 4 times now, the accommodation is basic and clean. The pool is still beautiful for a dip at the end on a busy day sunning yourself on the beach, also clean. The staff are always helpful and are now good friends. It is a good base to get to the other resorts. Calangute does seem to have changed over the past year, it seems very quite at night now, music seems to stop at 11pm and the bars close. I know the licencing laws have changed, but it would be nice if the powers that be could revise and make it midnight. Just a couple of down points but will still be going back to Goa next year

Room Tip: If you can, request a room overlooking the pool, we preferred one on the 2nd or third floor, more pr...
