Reviewed December 16, 2013

Just got back from the Somy Resort , Calagute Goa, have now stayed there 4 times , what a difference a year makes, last year it had just been taken over by new management so what a lovely surprise this year to find a hugh amount of work had been done to improve the appearance of the outside, now has guarded entry gates, all blocks have been freshly painted , brand new tiled floor slabs all through. Even breakfast had a bigger variety rather than the standard tea & toast .
What as even nicer was it was the same staff so friendly and always pleased to see a returned guest , I have reviewed this hotel before and still would , brill hotel, great location , not sure what more you would want .

We have just returned from our first trip to Goa, a late booking and staying at the Somy Resort. Prior to leaving I was concerned by reviews i had read. We had a great stay there and are of the view that some peoples expectations are ridiculous in relation to what they are paying. The accommodation was basic, but clean and comfortable. The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. The food at the hotel was tremendous, espeicially the vegetarian curries. The local food produced at the hotel was better than more expensive outlets elsewhere, unusual for hotel catering!
Do not expect a Hilton or Novo TelHotel...if you want that then pay for it and book elsewhere. However, for a lower budget hotel with good swimming pool and friendly atmosphere...it is fantastic and we wil certainly hope to be there again.

The one area of concern is the Russian contingency staying at the hotel. There were a number of incidents during our stay, all alcohol related and mostly in the early hours. I think the management need to "police" this behaviour more diligently. I have no wish to sound racist but the behaviour by many of the younger Russian guests did little to promote their country overseas.

Room Tip: I am told the rooms vary and if you don't like whats offered on arrival ask for another room or...

We found the hotel to be clean and tidy but lacking some facilities ie breakfast is not geared up for continental visitors only choice for breakfast if you are on a B+B package is toast & jam or an omelette otherwise it was spicy beans somas etc.. Your room will not have a TV unless you upgrade and there is no WIFI. we found most of the staff to be be very friendly and helpful. Rooms are not cleaned unless you hand your key in at the Desk whitch we discovered after several days

Stayed 2 weeks 7-21 November 2013. We had a great time room was comfortable and if you wished they would clean and change linen and towels every day. Room boy's very helpful and kept us topped up with fresh water. Breakfast was a bit hectic but that was because it was Diwali while we was there and lots of Indian tourists but this just made our holiday more enjoyable.Pool area very clean and pool bar very good, snacks around pool very good. No entertainment while the end of our holiday but plenty to do out of the complex and plenty of taxes outside the gate to take you anywhere.Overall this was a great place to stay and would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: We stayed in room D2 overlooking the pool brilliant.

I recently visited this hotel in Nov, 2013. I must say that this has been one of my worst experiences among the hotels i visited ever. We had taken MAP plan under which both breakfast and dinner were part of package.
The rooms are fine and housekeeping service is average. However, the food service was terrible and pathetic.
Almost, Same menu was served for 4 days (hardly 1-2 items were changed), but above all the serving staff is horrible. U need to struggle not only to get breakfast(because service is too slow) but also even to get serving plates, coffee mugs etc.. The same struggle again starts in the night for dinner.
Many guest had to have tea either in glasses or even plates. The staff is too rigid and stubborn, not at all guest friendly to look into these concerns.

My recommendation is strictly NO if you are looking for a decent stay in your holiday. Goa has much more options... you will surely get better stay at same price in some other hotel.
Still if you want to go.. then be ready for Tug of War in morning and evening.

Room Tip: Don't book this hotel. This is a simple tip to prevent you from getting into a disaster
