“Pleasant staff”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2013

This hotel is a typical 2 star Indian hotel. Staff are very pleasant rooms are very clean. If staying at this hotel don't stay in room 603 and the other rooms on that side as it backs onto the entertainment stage of the hotel next door and also the delivery bay of next doors hotel and they have deliveries all night long it was like being on a busy market. Sleeping will be a big problem. Food portions in the hotel are small unless you order rice then you get a massive portion. We found large roaches in our room when we woke on 2 accessions but I have to say that this is typical of India. Overall we had a great stay here and would definately come here again.

Room Tip: Rooms around the pool area .

It was late when we arrived and before we even got to the desk, the taxi driver turned down this alley that got more and more impassable. I became concerned that we may have taken our LAST ride anywhere. After our Goan taxi driver ask some locals where the hotel was, he had just passed the property by a hundred feet or so. The check-in was fairly uneventful but when we got to the room, there was a dusty, musty smell like no one had been in there in months. The bed and living space were fair, as to be expected, although a little old. Everything seemed to be very old, at least 1970's or older, and uncleaned, dusty. Two nights in a row, while taking a shower, the electricity went out, which was a little interesting. Only as we were leaving did I read a sign on the bathroom door that said don't run air conditioner and water-heater at the same time. Fumbling through the room in the dark to find the phone to call the office to fix the electricity was quite annoying.
There were nice stores and eating places within easy walking distance. We stayed gone from the hotel most of the time so I can't speak to the restaurant or pool or anything. Enjoy the beautiful beaches, boat cruises, churches in Old Goa

Basic furniture...but more luxury just dont needed when you living here

This was a last minute booking, big mistake! We arrived tat the hotel and they had no booking for us! there was broken glass all around the pool, rubbish everywhere... The room was ok, shower room wasn't! Stained orange walls, dirty floor.... This hotel would be perfect if they had a revamp!!!! Perfect for location

The resort was good. The staff was nice. The room is cleaned every day. There is small kitchen area in every apartment. The bathrooms are clean. We stayed there for 4 days and it was nice experience. Only one thing is the breakfast and diner menu never changes....

We stayed at the Colonia De Braganza Resort in Calangute, the apartment was OK,but the resort is Not Good, 2 pools both dirty just like milky water stayed 11 weeks & could not get into the pool at all, there are only 12 sunbeds between the 2 pools all very heavy & very old, & never cleaned. groups of young Indians some 8 to 10 staying in one apartment who used the pools like a communal bath, fully clothed. Hotel & Pool toilets leave a lot to be desired, with male staff using the ladies toilets. Our apartment was on the third floor & I complained to the hotel staff that our stairs were never cleaned or the windows, they just said that as it was a private apartment they were not responsible, so they were left with rubbish, cigarette ends dust & dirt!! The poolside bar has very pleasant staff but again hygiene not too good the curtain behind the bar was absolutely filthy & never taken down to clean while we were there, the poolside furniture is dirty & in poor condition. Did not like the look of the kitchen, looking at the state of the windows & mosquito nets all looked once again very dirty. The resort is in quite a good position, but Calangute is extremely busy with heavy traffic, it is nearly impossible to cross the road & is very noisy with blaring horns.

  • Liked — Good Goan food
  • Disliked — Dirt & lack of hygiene

Basic accommodation but exceptionally clean, all of the staff were very nice and friendly and breakfast was toast and tea or coffee unless you paid extra. Bed mattresses were very hard and just a piece of foam but if you ask for another mattress the cleaning guys will get you one. Good central location but be careful as the traffic is manic. Stayed here in January 2013 for 8 nights and it was enough.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the pool as they are quiet
