Santa Monica Resorte
Ranked #30 of 116 Hotels in Calangute
Reviewed February 9, 2011

Just returned today from what i would call "A HOLIDAY" - spent the last 14 nights in The Santa Monica Calangute and what a "pleasure" never before have met such friendly and welcoming staff they gave100 percent at all times and nothing and I mean nothing was too much trouble. But at the start of the holiday turned up at hotel in the early hours!! was given the "dreaded" room at the back ( knew about this by checking the reviews on internet before we went) so was not happy ! even cried all night just wanting to go home. Next morning though we asked for a front room and as soon as one came available it was ours ( 2 days later) - staff moved everything for us again nothing too much trouble. The rooms are basic but clean ( beds changed every day and rooms cleaned daily). I will say if you"r POSH this is not the place for you but if you are like my family down to earth and like value for money The Santa Monica is the place to stay - we could not fault anything here - in fact landed at Manchester at 7am and by mid afternoon paid a visit to Thomas Cook re another holiday here.This was our first visit to Goa and will not be our last and i think this was because how we were treated at The Santa Monica. We did intent toeat at different place on an evening but after trying three other place we found that the HOTEL food was some of the best in this area ( even if not on menu the would do their best to make it for you) i could go on and on but all iwill say now is TRY IT YOURSELF. Thanks to all at The Santa Monica for a great holiday - Bob,Velda and Nathan. ( Bob and Nathan - THE SPICEY BOYS).

Stayed for two weeks here,staff are all very friendly,rooms cleaned daily,drinks replaced everyday with charge at the end of the holiday.The area around the hotel can be very untidy with rubbish though.You can eat either in the hotel or out,so cheap to eat anywhere,We read the reviews befrore going to Goa,about the dogs barking at the hotel during the night,took earplugs but didn't need them.There is a walk of about 10 minutes to the beach,but well worth it.Sunbeds free if you eat in the relevant shack,lovely food,try the Lime soda (sweet) very refreshing.This was our first time to India and we absolutely enjoyed it,will be going again.

we landed at Vasco airport and headed towards calangute beach where our resort was located it was santa monica at Calangute beach. i cud not believe that i cud get this resort in such a minimum price. but the hotel staff did not compromise on quality. as my husband was fussy he even cud not find any kind of flaw in the resort. the hotel has got only delux suite in the price of a standard room for giving their guest the utmost luxury. The rooms are excellent with hot and cold water, with electric kettel and tea/coffee material, with split ACs and balconies with pool view/garden view.

the pool is located in the centre with two full time attendants and life guards. Around the pool, on one side they have a bigreception and on the other side they have restaurant and buffets spreading over a large area. The pool is surrounded by Palm and Ashoka trees which gives cool breeze while in water. they keep the pool neat and clean after every swim and open from 6 am to 6 pm.

their service was just a call away even at mid night. In the hotel premises one beauty parlour, one spa and gym. Even the approach road to beach and back was so convenient that one can even go twice or thrice to the beach on foot. if i had a chance to go to Goa once again i would definitely like to stay at santa monica once again.

We visited Santa Monica Resort in 3 week of Nov 2010. It was during our 2nd anniversary. We stayed in this hotel for 3 days and 2 nights. The moment we entered the resort found very clean sweeming fool and felt as if we are not in our country. ;-).Hotel at calm location and Calangute beach 15 mins walking distance from this hotel and market at 1.5km distance.Surprisingly i have not seen any indians other than staff.

The rooms are good but bathroom and treasury not satisfactory.Use this hotel as accommodation.Room servise,Break fast dont expect much more and about lunch and dinner i have no idea.

It is good value for your money.

We visited Santa Monica Resort in Nov 2009. It was during our 2nd anniversary. We stayed in this hotel for 4 days and 3 nights. We were visiting Goa for the first time and wanted to stay as close to the beach as possible. The Calangute beach is hardly 5 mins walking distance from this hotel.

The hotel ambiance is good. It has a swimming pool which is always clean. We also liked the food in the restaurant. They also have complimentary breakfast which is average and need some improvements as they give the same bread, butter, jam with tea and coffee everyday. There was no variety. Although, you can order any kind of breakfast you like with an extra cost.

The rooms in which we stayed used to get cleaned everyday. The bedsheets were replaced everyday and toilet was also cleaned.

To summarize, my experience in this hotel was very good and I would like to stay there again when I decide to visit Goa next time and would also recommend to my friends. It is good value for your money. It is not too attractive but very good and affordable.
