I visited in 2nd week of July 2014 for family vacation along with my wife and 3 years old kid for 5 days stay About place and resort: Excellent location alongside beach in South Goa although its too far from city and airport. Resort is spread over large area with excellent greenery (may be during rainy seasons, its at peak). It's an old property, but maintained and mixture of Goan style of construction and all modern day amenities Property is boasting upon large tract of open land, having in house Golf course, Basketball court and Yoga classes (although its not conducted due to rainy season) and you can really enjoy spending time outdoors, may be full day. The Pristine Beach, running alongside the property was clean and safe with lifeguards available although it is not advisable to enter in sea most of the time due to rough weather Resort is having 2 pools- and even children can enjoy without much fear. Always 2 staff remains there to help, however don't forget to keep swimwear otherwise they won't allow you to enter the pool. There is in-house entertainment- small casino, bar and dance floor. Also there were conducting classes and activity for children and ladies The rooms were clean, spacious and newly refurbished. From balcony you can have Sea view or Garden view. The staff were courteous and helpful, we were treated well since arrival in Resort. The food quality was good, although there were multiple options and better taste for non-vegetarian people but having limited choice for vegetarians. The service manager is always available to guide and help On flip side, property is far away from city and if you are more interested in exploring Goa and remain outdoor, South Goa resorts are not advisable. Resort had arranged for half day city tour, but half day is less time and majority of time you remain in your vehicle, travelling. Also nearby no good shops/market and if you want to enjoy Alcohol or outside food, need to depend upon in-house Costly bar/restaurant Overall, its an excellent property to stay and enjoy specially if you have small kidney wed couples and you have already explored Goa earlier and want to remain mostly indoors, seeking relaxing peaceful time away from the hustle bustle of the North Goa
I wanted to give my parents a nice, comfortable holiday close by the sea, since the three of us enjoy the sea and the beaches very much. One of my friends gave me the Indigo number. There is a complete package arrangement (travel and hotel) that Indigo offers. The customer service person there Mr. Mayukh Paul, did a simply incredible job. He got us the best package possible at the Ramada. We got travel, 3 nights one garden facing room and another pool facing room, breakfast, lunch and dinner, half day sightseeing trip (Shantadurga temple at Ponda, the Bom Jesus Church in Old Goa and Colva Beach), and welcome cookies, chocolate and wine (though the latter were included in the package I had to repeatedly remind the hotel staff before they actually delivered them to our rooms) . . The beach was barely five minutes from our rooms, beautiful beach, got to see jelly fish on the beach one evening and another evening just star fish. There were hermit crabs in the gastropod shells. For me this was the height of this holiday. The food was good for all the three meals, all the three days. It was tasty, fresh and different at every meal. One problem was the flies during the meals if you not sitting in the AC dining area. There were just too many on the dining tables and the serving area. The evening entertainment was live music and we enjoyed it, particularly the second day when they had Mr. Conrad. He sang songs sung by Engelbert Humperdinck, Elvis Presley and songs on demand. It was a very nice evening. The swimming pools were great, there is one deeper one for adults and another which is safe for both children and adults learning to swim. Use of the swimming pool and the gym free, were part of the package as also use of steam and sauna free once during the three nights stay. My friend and I used it and it was good. The staff overall were very friendly, warm and accommodative The half day trip to the temple and church was nice but they were too far away, so maybe the half day trip should just be to temples and churches nearby so that one could actually get more time on another beach. We got barely half an hour on Colva beach due to the traffic jam on our way back from the church in Old Goa. It might have been nice to go to a place where a little souvenir shopping could be done. Overall it was a great experience.
It was a honeymoon trip in June 2014. Location was good. It was located outside the city. Car facility was provided by the hotel people and transportation was also available nearby. Surroundings of the hotel were very good. Everything was there. Hotel was situated near to the beach. Water sports facility was available there. Staff and all were good there but food was not that good. Immediate response was given by the staff to all our requests. There was no delay in check-in and check-out. Office manger was very good there. Inside and outside look of the hotel was very good. Room was spacious, neat and clean. AC, TV, geyser, room heater or everything was provided in the room and in working condition. Pillows, bed sheets, blankets, and washroom were neat and clean. Sea view was visible from the room. They cleaned the room daily. Hot and cold water was available for 24 hours. I took food there, both veg and non-veg were available there. Room service was not good there. Indian and Chinese food was available there. Food was good with buffet. Price wise, it was okay. Swimming pool, gym, and other activities were available there. I used them. Sightseeing trip was organized by them. Overall, I was satisfied with the resort. I will recommend this to others. Food service in the room should be improved. Goa as a destination is very good. Location wise, it was excellent. Appearance of the resort was also excellent. Staff behaviour and their service were excellent. Room was also excellent. Food and drink was good. Activities were excellent there.
I stayed for 4 days in this hotel with my family. They have a private beach, swimming pool and many other activities were available. Activities were fabulous. Food was fantastic. Both varieties were available in veg. And non-veg. I booked single room in this hotel at ground floor. Rooms were well maintained, neat and clean. TV, geyser, refrigerator, coffee maker and all basic amenities were available in the room. It is a five star property. Location was good. Appearance of the hotel was excellent. Services were quick. Booking and front office was cooperative and friendly. I traveled in March month with my wife. Goa place is awesome for traveled. I can recommend this hotel for travelers.
This was self planned honeymoon of me and my wife. We had best ever stay for 2 days here Our car dropped us at this romantic awesome place called Ramada. Started with warm welcome drink. There was smooth check-in and hotel staff helped in everything till drop to room. Rooms were really world class. We got room in a separate building away from regular busy business place. It was a ground floor room and balcony directly ends into a big lawn cum golf ground. View was beautiful. All the surroundings around hotel were really wonderful. Then the beautiful Varca beach. It was almost like a private beach. Not much general public will come there Breakfast was wonderful. Though other meals were good but it's really costly as its 5 star hotel. But you have the option to go to beach and lot of nice restaurants It will be really nice family vacation place for 2N/3D. Preferably go in weekdays (to avoid lot of biz people on weekend) & November was awesome I would love to go again maybe with more people as group so that we can have more fun in beach and other activities. Don't miss the romantic sunset point:)
