“Pleasent Stay @ Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2012

I had a very good stay at the hotel..... Hotel was clean and good swimming pool and greenery surround at the hotel
Good

1. Swimming Pool
2. Peace Stay with Nice Big rooms
3. Supermarket & Spa in the hotel
4. Daily activities like painting, badminton tournament, housie
5. Good Food @ Restaurant , Indoor games

Bad
1. Expect room to have some initial issues/ glitches of cleaning & not working heater or A/C properly
2. Containers given may not be clean & hygienic at the start
3. Water to be filled from cooler on our own

The Benaulim beach is 10 - 12 min walk from the resort. You will rent bike / car just outside the resort at good price

Overall good experience at the resort and can be recommended to others

Room Tip: Try to take beach facing rooms

We stayed in The Royal Goan Beach Club at the Royal Palms for a week from 25th February till 3rd March as RCI guest. The stay was pleasant. It is not a just resort to relax and enjoy nature. To enjoy it one have to take part in activities and be out going. It is in the heart of Benaulim a lively settlement of Goa. Our experience starts from Ms Betty at the reception who speaks little but handles her responsibility with ease and efficiency the rest of the service help were decent.
Ours was a Studio apartment that is quite spacious with adequate kitchenette, toilet and sitting dining spaces. Those who wish to cook and stay the place is ideal for them. The furniture and finishes were not extra ordinary but OK. There were two balconies to spend your leisure time.
The environment was nice, the swimming pool area, the activities area, the roads and gardens were well planned and maintained. The restaurant La-Tortilla is not the best and deserves improvement. But there are many eateries just outside the entry gate which were reasonable and manageable. Little more open space within the campus could have made the total ambience more attractive and enjoyable.
The beach is about a kilometer away and you may spend most of your time there with fun and food around. Rented Tourist Taxis are available outside the gate for site seeing. They can be directly negotiated or arranged through the front desk staff. Local shops are all around for your shopping needs. The main towns Vasco, Panaji and the Airport are over thirty kilometers from Benaulim.
Goa has its attraction for all classes and types of people. We can swear the stay at The Royal Goan Beach Club at the Royal Palms will be worth its value.

Room Tip: In side rooms with pool view. Avoid road facing rooms.

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.
