Ranked #2 of 15 Hotels in Benaulim
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 February 2012

I stayed at RGBC at Royal Palms from 7th Jan 2012 to 14th Jan 2012. We were 6 adults and 2 kids accommodated in a 2 BR (Villa).

It was a great experience to be there and enjoyed the time very well except few surprises which I feel are the part and parcel when you are away from your home.

Pros:
- Location is very good, near to the beach and market.
- Nearby beach named Benaulim is a calm and nice beach
- Accommodation provided was clean and spacious
- Food at restaurant was delicious
- Clean and nice swimming pool
- Nice cooking facilities

Cons:
- Away from North Goa if someone want to enjoy various North Goa attractions
- Room service was slow same as of front desk staff
- Slow service at Restaurant. Ensure that you place order half an hour before you expect to start eating. Also make sure that you order all at one shot. They don't take even side orders after 10 pm.
- Look for Restaurant bill calculations. Number of times, it was calculated wrongly.
- Average Gym and Play area

I was totally convinced and taken 25yrs membership.

We were allotted a horrible C grade
2 bed room apartment at the royal palms for 6 of us. The person at the front desk took 60 minutes ,yes exactly an hour to give us the room The hall was all of 10 by 12 feet and could not accommodate all six together. There was. no AC in the so called hall. The service was slow. Ice got over by 10 pm . The towels were old , not good enough for even a cheap hotel. . The AC in the bedrooms were hardly cooling even in february. Next day we spoke harshly to the lady at the counter. She then allotted two 1 bed room apartments to us. And then we were comfortable. In short we need to fight for your rights even after paying well. You come on a holiday for peace, but you can't get peace without a fight , how very ironical!!

Royal Goan Beach Club at Royal Palms can be described as-Serene, calm, homely, dignified, value for money. I traveled to Royal Goan Beach Club at Royal Palms during New Year(31st Dec'11-04th Jan'12) and again fin Jan'12(25th Jan'12-29th Jan'12). Goa is a nice place to break someone's routine life. The number of times i visit Goa is 11-12 trips a year. I LOVE GOA. And resorts like Royal Goan Beach Club at Royal Palms make me come back to Goa every now and then. Its located on Benaulim Beach Road. The approach to the hotel is simply amazing-petty shops, small restaurants, bikes on hire, a mix of local and the travelers crowd, adds to the look of the resort. The staff is courteous and friendly with prompt service and of great assistance. The rooms are well maintained and some of them are undergoing renovations to make our stay more comfortable. As one enters the resort, you are greeted by the warmth and friendly smile of the gate keeper and the porters. At the reception, you are again greeted by the well groomed receptionists who go out of their way to make you feel comfortable and at ease. The beautiful and handsome staff are a treat. The staff is courteous and friendly with prompt service and of great assistance. The rooms are well maintained and some of them are undergoing renovations to make our stay more comfortable. The swimming pool is also well maintained, keeping in mind the influx of so many travelers using them. The bar near the pool, is a cute addition. One needs to taste the masala omelette, and aloo parantha's from the restaurant. Check-in and Check-out is simple and easy. But the reception staff needs to be informed a earlier to make our and their job simple. One needs to try the K-Spa at the resort. We were running short of time, hence couldn't use them. To sum up the stay at the resort, its worth giving it a shot and i am confident, everyone would like to come back to the resort. I DEFINITELY WOULD COME BACK TO Royal Goan Beach Club at Royal Palms :-)

Room Tip: Rooms facing the swimming pool would be a good selection

When we were shown to our appartment we couldn't believe our eyes as the place was very dirty with bird droppings on the balcony. We complained about the dirt and were given another appartment that seemed to be slightly better but took it as we had been travelling 27 hours and were in need of a rest. On closer inspection we found the place to be just as dirty. The furniture was old and stained, fridge was rusty and dirty, bathroom was grotty, bed linen and bath towels faded and stained
