Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 18, 2013

Enjoyed a wonderful stay 11th Dec - 21st Dec 2012! Have already rebooked for January 2014. Ticks all the boxes - location, cleanliness, friendliness, charming. The owners are truly lovely and they employ some wonderful staff. Absolutely loved everything about it. Can't wait to get back next year.

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms are an excellent option.

I booked here after seeing other recommendations on Trip Advisor - we stayed (2 couples) for 3 nights in December. Stanley, the guy who runs the Hotel is so friendly and helpful, and takes everything in his stride. Nothing was a problem for Stanley (not that we had any problems) - the rooms all have AC and a fan and a safe and are clean, the bathrooms are clean, the pool is small but perfect size for location and hotel.
The food in the bar at the pool is gorgeous - we ate here a few times and were never disappointed. The complimentary breakfast is very filling and extremely good - the staff were friendly and happy.
The hotel itself was within a couple mins walk to the beach. Also, free Wifi at the hotel was a bonus. I would highly recommend this hotel if you're visiting Calangute!!!!

Room Tip: All rooms seem to be good!!!

We visited in off season of June-2012. Adhoc trip. Its quiet and located 5mins walking distance from beach. Good place to stay, not too jazzy but decent. Reasonably priced. Good but small swimming pool. Good bar and restaurant. Food quality is very nice. And al food beaches and other tourist spots are not too far. Over all good stay.

Room Tip: Pool facing and second floor.

After 5 weeks travelling around India staying at a different place nearly every 2nd or 3rd night.. one week here was a welcome break where i did nothing and enjoyed it.. great book swap available and comfortable sun loungers with umbrellas and a nice pool. The included breakfast at the restaurant was great along with the seafood salad for lunch. The rooms are spotless and the hosts are lovely, informative and make sure the rooms are spick and span after the cleaners have been in. They did have issues with the free Wifi during our stay but this was fixed up near the end. You can hire mopeds onsite for US$5 a day, which is the going rate around the place. Minibar prices weren't too bad. Found a great restaurant about a 15 minute walk away called The Spice Rack which is also worth going to.. Beach is 5 minutes walk.

Room Tip: Ground floor have nice balconies facing out onto the pool area.. sorry to stereotype but i would req...

I have been there in Dec12 and my experience is fabulous, when I was exploring hotels in Goa i found Kingstork comes in top at that time I didn’t realize that the reviews were really correct when I visited the resort. The resort is very near to the Calangute beach approx. 100 meters, rooms are very good and you will find it worth once you have been there. Bathrooms are neat and clean, pool is very good, location is very good. One thing I realize of Kingstork is that the staff is very cooperative; the owner of the resort is very kind and very cooperative. She has been really helpful when we need her she personally spend almost 2 hours to resolve our problem, realty very impressive, I would like to thank her personally again.

Room Tip: Since the numbers of rooms are very less so it should be booked earlier, if you didn't find any...

I stayed in Kingstork in Septemebr with my husband and parents and we all loved it. The swimming pool was small but had a bar attached, the bar attendants were very cooperative and the best part was the lady owner. She was very courteous and helpful and made us feel very welcome. It's very near to the beach and the place is very clean and well maintained. If I stay in Calangute in the future will head for this place without a second thought
Only thing they could improve on, I feel is the food, otherwise for staying it is perfect.

It was a relief to arrive at this little hotel after a nail biting taxi ride from Dabolim Airport. My criteria were: clean bed, hot shower, beach proximity and (being India) a functioning toilet. This establishment delivered on all with a certain gentle charm. The owners obviously take a lot of pride in the place and while the list of rules posted on the wall seemed a little on the pedantic side I didn't fall foul of any enforcers. My fellow guests were quiet and well-mannered - in fact the loudest thing was a Russian's pair of fluoro budgie smugglers (Australian readers will know what these are). Forget about wifi and internet as there isn't any; it didn't bother me as I was attempting a brief escape from that.
