Third time Calungute, First time at the Carmino. The hotel itself is very well located, just a stones throw from Holiday Street. The staff are friendly and helpful and the food is very reasonable.Inclusive breakfast was just tea and toast but other chargeable options available. Rooms are basic as you would expect, but the beds were comfortable and generally the room was kept clean to a reasonable standard by the room boys. However they are small and dark as they have few windows. I did'nt have Air Con but the ceiling fan had a high setting altho keeping you cool it was quite noisy. Unfortunately when I stayed there was a group of very loud Russian youths were slamming doors, shouting, spitting, and frolicking in the pool till 5am during our first week or so. Guess I was just unlucky. Not the hotels fault. I'd probably stay there again, after all it's just a base for sleeping. Enjoy.

Room Tip: Overlooking the Pool are the better rooms.

The hotel and rooms are quite basic but more than adequate for a stay in Goa. Great location, walking distance to the beach and all local amenities. The rooms are spacious and cleaned upon request. The staff were very friendly and extremely helpful.

We found this hotel a very poor two star which is a shame because all the staff were brilliant. The hotel seems to be split into two halves.
Rooms in the 1st half would be lucky to gain a 1 star. They are away from the pool area, very dark and dinjy, one window covered by a rag in place of a curtain at the back of the room overlooking overgrown, unkept scruffy neighbouring land. A haven for mozzies, as was the dark dinjy room which contained a ricketty dinjy cupboard. A wet room, with a water heater that heated 5 litres of water at a time and tripped the fuse if you tried to leave it on for continuance hot water. Two single beds pushed together, with hard lumpy mattresses and hard lumpy pillows. There was no kitchen area, only a fridge.

We were moved for the 2nd week after complaining, to a poolside room.
What a transformation. The whole area was brighter, the room overlooked the pool, and you could sit out on your patio and have food or drink without feeling cut off from the rest of your fellow hotel guests. Or read a book and still feel part of the crowd.

Sadly although the room was brighter it still only had a 5 litre water heater which tripped the fuse if left on. A single fridge which flooded the floor whenever there was a powercut. The wardrobe was the same as in the first 1 star part of the hotel. As was the beds and pillows. An extra pillow was ordered, but the problem apart from the pillows being small and flat was that they were also very hard and lumpy. So even two pillows were not comfy, you just could not flatten the boulder like lumps.

One day we had an infestation of caterpillar like larvae, covering the ceiling and dropping onto the beds. The staff were called and they sprayed the room with an insecticde and swept it out. A couple of days later we had flying insects covering the beds. A couple staying at a room opposite ours accross the pool called out "Insects" from their balcony having seen the staff with the aerosol insecticide. Onbviously they must have experienced the same.

Breakfast was included in our package and consisted of tea or coffee and rock hard toast with butter, jam or marmalade. Anything else whether, eggs, beans, sausages, porridge etc had to be paid for seperately. Drinks or food bought from outside could not be consumed around the bar area, but you could have them on your own balcony.
Often the music was too loud even though the bar and pool area were empty of people. Had to ask the barman twice to turn down the rubbish music during the day whilst trying to read a book on my balcony,.

Russians were not a problem to me, but the other English and Dutch guests told me that one particular night the Russians were drunk and fighting amongst themselves around the pool area and keeping everybody awake, and that they had all had to come out onto their balconies to tell them to keep the noise down. .

This was the fourth time I have stayed here. We had a room overlooking the pool which was a cleaned every day and plenty of linen and towel changes. Rooms are basic with their own water heaters and a wet room and kitchen area with fridge although there are no cooking facilities. Our room had recently been decorated and there seemed to be memory foam toppers on the mattresses, although maybe we were just lucky. The buildings and garden area are very pretty although the paintwork looks lke a DIY job, The pool was cleaned constantly and there is a masseur on site. Breakfast can be anything you like and what I saw looked very good although we settled for toast and coffee (take your own instant). Other meals are served at the hotel but to be honest they are fighting a loosing battle as there are so many brilliant restaurants to choose from. The staff here have remained the same and are reall friendly and helpful. (They will accepet £1 coin as tip if you arrive without rupees). Plenty of little shops and bars in the vacinity and just a few minutes from the beach road. As with everywhere, there are a lot of Russians and the main problem with this is the language barrier.

Room Tip: I have only stayed in pool view rooms which let you see whats going on although sometimes there can...

Stayed here it November 2011 and can say that we had a brilliant time there. Staff and guests were great and always up for a laugh. Rooms where only cleaned when you asked. So it up to you if you want them to go in your room or not. Decor is very shoddy, from a distance it looks great close up looks like the wife painted it ...lol The food we had was ok but we only had snack food Swimming pool cleaned every day. Would i go back again ummm Yes if the price was right. Only down side is that the russians also use it and they can be a bit of a hand full we had to put two couples right. They where swimming into you on perpose hoping you would get out. A swift kick and a gob full sorted them out never heard a peep from them rest of the stay ....lol
