Just got back from an amazing holiday in Goa staying at the Ronil Beach Resort. The hotel is on the main Baga road which makes it a great location with easy access to the beach via CSM road or Tito's Lane. The road outside the hotel is really busy (we were there during Easter) but the room we had was well away from the traffic noise. The rooms are perfectly adequate and cleaned immaculately everyday. The gardens are really lovely and colourful. The staff are fantastic - so friendly and helpful - nothing is too much trouble. We were on a bed and breakfast basis and didn't receive the usual dinner vouchers due to booking through Cosmos (never again - but that's another story). The breakfasts were lovely with chef on hand to cook whatever kind of eggs you liked - scrambled etc plus there was typical Indian food on offer too which was really tasty. There is entertainment at night, but so many other things to do that we really didn't stay around the hotel that much although the one meal we did have in the evening at the hotel was delicious. I must say that all the restaurants and beach shacks we went to served amazing food.
There are big changes coming as the hotel is being renovated at the end of the season - so it can only get better. Just hope I can afford to go again in the near future.
For anyone reading this there were a few things that worried me before I went on this holiday and I found it hard to get answers anywhere so just incase anyone else is wondering...
1. There is loads of shade on the beach and if you travel in March apparently there is usually a fabulous breeze coming in from the sea - bliss!
2. You can change travellers cheques - at the hotel and also at exchange shops - we used the one at the bottom of CSM lane.
3. There are toilets at the beach shacks and they are not holes in the ground - the ones we used were clean and perfectly useable.
4. You do need to take lots of money as the shopping is just wow.
These restaurants are just amazing...
1. Fire and Ice - CSM road - really reasonable prices and apparently the steak is fabulous (not a steak lover so can't confirm that but the meals we had were lush.)
2. East Meets West - Baga - so pretty with thousands of fairy lights and good food too.
3. O Pescador - Baga - another pretty restaurant with star lanterns and great food too.
4. Sea Shells - Candolim - fabulous
5. Sumi's Kitchen - great food - chef used to be at After 7 (8) - more European choices
6. A Reverie - Calangute - twice as expensive as the others, but wow very special.
I think I've missed some out here, but all the food was just so good everywhere we went and so reasonably priced too.

Room Tip: We were told V block was good but it was being closed for renovation. We were in C which was fine for what we wanted. I think the rooms above reception may be noisy as they may face the road, but not sure on that.

We stayed there for 4 nights 5 days. Every thing in Ronil was as per our expectations, except for the bathrooms. Check in was smooth..... They have 2 pools....enough to accommodate 100% occupancy. Location of the hotel is the best in North Goa......right on the most happening place in Goa i.e., Tittos lane. walking distance from baga beach, 10 min walk from the only casino in the vicinity, 15 min walk from britto's, Food was excellent although the breakfast spread was not enough. They can improve on this. Room Service was quick. Staff were efficient. Best place to be in and around Baga or in north Goa. Yes will certainly be back again.

Room Tip: We had opted for V block room and we got the same. I would recommend the same.

Just returned from goa after a two week stay, on arrival to the ronil we were swiftly checked in and shown our room we - well my other half wanted a pool view so we requested to change and as soon as a room was available we were changed with no fuss with assistance with our luggage rooms were standard but fine for what we needed it for, after all we would only be using it for a short period of the day, the main pool was large enough for a large group of people to use at the same time and there's a smaller quieter pool around the other side of the restaurant both pools could do with a filter system to help clean the water a bit better - but both pools were fine to use. Food in the hotel was great none of our party had "Delhi belly" while we were staying we ate alot in the hotel for breakfast, snacks and evening meals on arrival we were presented with 6 meal vouchers which was a lovely surprise, my favioute evening meal was barbecue steak it was sooo yummy I asked for it over and over again which they did even though it was only a chef special on a Sunday. All the staff were fabulous devidis a waiter was sooo great he was always smiling and having a joke with us all the time nothing was ever to much for him all staff were great always willing to help. Key resorts are/have taken over ronil and are due to be renovating so I'm excited to see the changes they will be making but I really really hope they keep the same staff because they are the people you see on a daily basis and are the ones that overall make your holiday, they also need to get some more sun beds because other guests were claiming ownership of them( guests were normally the ones who came for long periods of time) we had to get up at 4am to put towels on one day to be certain we got 2 sun beds lol, during the renovations I hope they upgrade the mattresses as they are a bit hard and it did cause an issue with sleeping but once you get use to it they were ok, they had a few cats on site which we were told it was a neighbours cats but one in particular a mum had her baby and they'd stroll around together they don't bother you but it's lovely to watch her teaching get young new tricks, the loation of ronil was great taxis just outaide but always agree a price before you get it tony and Len were good drivers to use, 24/7 shop opposite the hotel good for when the bar shuts and 2 mins away was titos lane which leads to the beach and also had lots of shops down there I could go on forever about how good the loaction and the ronil was but overall we had a fantastic holiday and we will be returning we'd like to find out for defiant what changes will be happening at the ronil- regarding staff and the hotel itself and also when it will be fully completed so we can plan our return! Well done everyone at the ronil we luv you! :D

Spent a few days at the Ronil Resort.
Great Position in Baga with almost every thing within walking distance.
Many Restaurant's around locally to choose from.
Short walk to the Beach via Tito's Lane.
Rooms average, but very clean, made up daily with fresh sheets and towels etc.
Two swimming pools that were well maintained.
Breakfast was great with a great choice, found dinner a bit expensive however we did have entertainment thrown in great music.
No problems with security, my laptop was out on the desk most of our stay and nothing was ever a miss.
I believe that the Ronil should provide Full in room Tea and Coffee making facilities, and with Wi-Fi availability to all rooms even if it is chargeable for this service.
Presently it is available at a small affordable charge in the lounge/reception area, but not in our G - Block.
Similar hotels in that price bracket do provide theses facilities for their guests.
Overall we enjoyed our stay and will certainly be back next year.
Friendly staff and Great Service.

Dear Guest

Thank you for your feedback on your recent stay at our resort.

We are indeed happy to note that you enjoyed the hospitality at our resort including the facilities, service and food.

the prices of food in our hotel have been perceived to be high when compared to outside restaurants because we include taxes in our printed prices. Local restaurants make manual bills and avoid payment of taxes in most cases.

We would like to inform you that by September we shall be having Tea coffee makers in all our rooms and also that we have increased our Wifi availability to our pool side, restaurant and pool facing rooms.

We look forward to having you back at our resort and thank you once again for your feedback.
