“good comfortable stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 March 2012

While there were initial glitches and delays in the booking (guess because the Admin staff is thin and they donot have online booking mechanism), once we reached the property our stay was very comfortable and pleasant. The pool, the restaurant, the Bazaar, were all very good and well maintained. Did not get a chance to try the spa but it seemed to be good. The other good thing is the location of this resort - there is a market right outside, you ahve multiple vendors of car/bike hiring and the Benaulim beach is just about a km away.

Lastly, for us, staying in a aprtment style accomodation proved very helpful. The kitchen was quite well equipped and the Bazaar had all the supplies.

Room Tip: Not all rooms had the same size balconies and some even had mosquitoes...I would say ask for a room...

the Staffs who work there get angry very easily and they dont know how to speak to the Guests.
they are very slow.. if they say it would take an hour then it definitely means it is going to take 3 hours.
Much better resorts outside.

Let me go straight away to the

Good: Great friendly Staff, Well maintained and clean Apartments, Well maintained Garden. Pool is clean but could be better maintained. Aquaguard water in the resort. Location is good. Dreams Bikes (ask for Cassius) just outside the resort is a good place to rent bikes and cars. Very Good Beaches are closeby. Supermarket and Veggie vendors are closeby. Margoa Market is quite close and a must for all you fish lovers. Bargain Hard at the market.

And

Not So Good: Towels could be better. Gym can be improved. Music can be better at the poolside. Better choice of reading books and magazines can be provided.

Let go of the Nitty Gritties and you will have a great Stay.

Room Tip: Take the rooms facing the poolside. Always a good bet.

This was our 2nd visit to Royal Palms Goa during the Valentine Week of 20012. I would like to apprise every staff of the resort who paid great attention to our requirements. I have also left my feedback while checking out. I am sure that if I send someone to Royal Palm he will be definitely delighted. Hope the same standard will be maintained year after year. The Garden & Pool maintenance was fantastic.



I thing the only area needs improvement is housekeeping.




I am sharing some Pic in the resorts.

Room Tip: Contact the resort in advance for room preference....They give the best rooms to the members..

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.
