“Excellent!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 March 2012

Been to The Ronil twice now. Both times in January. The hotel is good value for money, although it is basic, you have all you need to make your holiday enjoyable.
The location could not be better!! You are right on the Baga Road with all the hustle and bustle that goes with it!!
The beach is just a short walk away.
Plenty of taxis outside the hotel. Agree your price BEFOREyou get in!! You can hire the taxi by the trip or by the day. Our taxi driver, Glen had many trips to take advantage of.
I recommend you take the Spice plantation trip. Really informative and interesting.
The Jungle Book trip was FANTASTIC!! We stayed in a Goan hut overnight, had a ride on an elephant, saw elephant shows, fed the elephants and also went down to a stunning river and washed the elephants!! We also had dancing around a firepit well intothe night!!! Superb!!
Those that got up early had a walk up the mountain( fairly hard going) to the Dashagar waterfall,saw a beautiful Hindu temple and had a yoga class!!!!
The whole place is exciting, colourful and exhilarating.
Must also mention the food at the Ronil is absolutely excellent. Everything is cooked freshly. Many of the ingrdients are actually grown in the grounds of the hotel. Watch out for the man that cuts down the coconuts!! He is truly a sight to behold!!
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel and destination to family and friends.
Indeed I will be back in January 2013!!!

Overall the Ronil Beach is a good hotel and the staff are very friendly and helpful, however there are insufficient sun loungers for the amount of people who use the hotel and this causes issues.

The possessive behaviour I witnessed of the 3 english people who were in rooms V3 & V5 during the period 12th Feb and still there on the 26th Feb (and yes I am english myself) regarding the few sun beds and loungers that were available around the small pool was totally unacceptable. We had a ground floor room and were able to witness their behaviour on the daily basis and by 0600 hrs each day they had marked out their territory by laying out towels and books, however there would be long periods throughout the day and especialy first thing in the morning when they were not being used but other people where wandering around looking for a sun bed /lounger.

There was one day on the 25th when another holiday maker managed to secure these 3 sun beds and the response on the 26th was swift and paroqial and just epitimised why us English are looked upon as fools. The female Victor Meldrew of the party (we never saw her smile in two weeks) got up at 0440 hrs and put out towels, books and the wooden table signs which said reserved onto the 3 sun beds in order to ensure they secured "their" little bit of england. See photos attached.

I believe these people stay at the hotel for up to 8 weeks and therefore believe they have a greater right to the use of the sun beds than other holiday makers so much so that I also believe the lady in question had the audacity to go and complain the the hotel manager that oher people had got "their" sun beds.

If an I believe First Choice & Thompson are going to only do all inclusive holiday to this hotel next year then the lack of space and sun beds/loungers will create issues because rather than go down to the beach which is what people do at present more people will want to spend time around the pools and the facilities and behavioiurs of a small element will not allow this

Room Tip: If you want quiet stay away from the rooms near to the main pool

Stayed at this hotel for the second time recently. Booked directly with the hotel and paid the same price as going through Thompson but for a much larger room! The staff are friendly and the food is excellent. It is not a luxury hotel but represents good value. Hotel shows signs of wear and tear but as it is clean this just adds to it's Indian charm. Wifi only works intermittently and our shower would flood the bathroom occassionaly but having been to India several times you get in the habit of laughing at things not operating with precision!

Hi
My wife and I stayed at the Ronil Beech 4th till 11th Feb for 1 week.Room No C4 ground level by pool but facing outwards so small balcony was not very appealing but this didn"t bother us as we never use it anyway.Rooms cleaned daily with fresh towels and clean sheets, fan plus remote control a/c.Breakfast was fine consisted of omlettes,eggs to order,toast machine fruit and a couple of spicy dishes plus tea & coffee served at your table no problems there also a great touch by the hotel was the three free 1000 rupee vouchers which each voucher would buy you a 2 course meal for 2 with sides.Food is of a very high standard and you are able to enjoy a great meal whilst being entertained by various singers.The hotel also provides clean beech towels daily which you pick up at the security gate on the way out and drop them there on the way back.One downside was the pool which didn"t look very appealing and was hardly used think this may have been lack of some sort of filter/cleaning system as water just seemed to be stagnent.Outside the hotel everything is right there from supermarket to chemist to cash machines right amongst the madness that is Baga.We loved Baga and this hotel and will be returning next year.

Room Tip: away from main road as its very noisy

Arrived back from the Ronil Beach the 3rd of Feb what a great hol, staff friendly food great a 3 star hotel but made to feel like a 5 star guest. on the main Baga road so the rooms at the front of the hotel can be noisey but the inside rooms ok. Rooms cleaned sheets changed each day. staff are wonderful, once outside the hotel you have to remember you are in India dusty bit grubby, costs pint of beer 100 rps 20 ciggs 60 rps curry and rice with a bread 300 rps. we got 77 to the £. we will return!!!!

Room Tip: dont get a room at the front of the hotel if poss.
