Avantika Resort is a place you can stay if you aren't looking for luxury or high quality services. It is a budget resort with facilities such as: Swimming Pool, Bar, Restaurant...
In the room where I stayed there was a double bed, one cupboard, side table, average size bathroom with sink/shower/toilet, a fridge (unfortunately, ours wasn't working) a small/medium size tv, dressing table. It had all the basic amenities that a room should have.

Cleanliness was average aswell. When we entered, the room was perfectly fine. All sheets were clean and room looked alright. There were insects here and there around the room but they weren't a huge issue. As for the housekeeping, well we had to tell them to clean our room instead of them doing it by themselves. But since this was a budget hotel, we didn't really expect much service.

Food was better than expected. All food made was fresh, no complaints. But i didn't take any chances, so we all only ordered which we knew would have to be made fresh.

Bathroom could have been maintained much better. There was dirt everywhere when we arrived. So we had to tell the housekeeping to take care of the bathroom before and also spray some insecticide to remove all the bugs/insects, etc.

The swimming pool was average on the whole, just leaves and a few dead insects. Not a pleasant sight when you come to a so called resort, but then again it was a very cheap stay.

On the whole, this resort should only be considered a place to sleep, nothing else. Make sure that they clean your room thoroughly before you check in. You don't want to end up with a cockroach on ur pillow next to your face. Room is poor, Cleanliness is average/poor, Service is poor, Food is average.

If you can spend slightly more, DO IT...you'll find much better places to stay.

It's a budget hotel. But for the same price, u really get better one. It was suppose to be near the beach.. But that's not true. and to find this location u really have to struggle.
Rooms are not clean, Service is not good, Food is ok.

I took yatra.com fly n stay package to Goa and selected this pathetic so called resort. It is not even a dharamshala. I am just copying the email that I have dropped to Yatra guys as well...

Hi Amit,

We had horrible experience with this so called resort. Actually its not even a resort.

Some key observations:

1) Cockroaches roaming regularly in the room.

2) Dirty Towels and blankets.

3) No electricity backup (for hours we were without electricity and had candle lights). Imagine 33-34 temp and no light. This happened twice.

4) Poor Service (We had to wait literally for 15 min for plates for breakfast. When we objected, the receptionist taunted that it takes time to get plates)

5) Pool was dirty. Morever, pool timings were 9am-6pm. Obviously tourist will be out in this time. I needed a dip after I came back from my day excursion but I was not allowed to do so. And when I objected, the receptionist said(in his usual bad tone) that in no resort, you will find late evening pool timings. AND FYI: Last time I was in Lemon Tree Amrante, Candolim and always used to take late evening dips.

6) There was no flexibility in checkout timings. 10.30 means max 11. They didn't even allowed 1 hour and said that tourists are waiting in his Boss's office which was completely untrue.

7) The behavior of particularly the receptionist: Mr Radhey Shyam was very bad. He was always loud mouthed and never heard our issues. He was always upto altercations.

There were plenty of other people we met during breakfast and all of them had similar complaints. All of them were through travel websites only.

In short, I had horrible time in this resort.

Is Yatra such an irresponsible company that they will tie up with any resort just because it is cheap??? You guys never ever validated the condition of this resort. If you dont believe in my feedback, please go through what people have written on tripadvisor.

I want to escalate this to your management. Please forward this email to the concerned person.

Regards,
ankit

Please avoid and pay a little more somewhere else. The place is not at all maintained and yes as per earlier reviews there are cockroaches in the rooms. Bathrooms are big but not at all clean. the swimming pool size is 50% of the photograph and it was not at all clean. I doubt whether they really clean the same in 15 days also. In case you wanna just roam around in Goa and come to sleep in the hotel , then only choose this one. the only plus point was the room service.
