Good hotel with different activities


I visited the hotel in the month of July and it was a business trip. Tariff rate of the hotel was reasonable. The destination of the hotel was excellent especially the Candolim beach. The hotel location was not good and the best part of the hotel was by taxi. The appearance of the hotel was very good especially the swimming pool. Services provided by the hotel staff's were very good. Rooms were neat, clean and interior was attractive. The food was not up to the mark as chapattis were not good. Other activities like Gym, swimming pool, Wi- Fi facility was available in the hotel. Indoor games were conducted by the hotel. Pick up drop facility was provided by the hotel. I would like to recommend this hotel to other travellers. The overall experience on the hotel stay was good if you visit on normal days without the peak days.

Affordable stay with awesome services


I went with my cousins during the time of new year. Great hotel for stay with swimming pool. Staff is helpful. Food is great. Prices were higher because of the time of new year. But we still managed. Prices are affordable in January and February. Hotel staff will arrange Scooty or car on rent for you if you want. You can get guide from the hotel.

Average stay. Cant expect more


I had booked 5 nights stay from 23rd may to 28th may at golden palms hotel and spa, Calangute after couple of great experience from golden palms hotel Bangalore, coming back to ratings . . Hotel service 3* average, I could like to give Lucky (Waiting staff) 5* Excellent. Value 3* Average. Hotel Entrance is through the service area cum parking. Hotel lobby had POOL- BILLIARDS Table. Swimming pool is too small like a village well. Didn't even get a Complimentary Wine bottle on arrival. Gym was too small and congested with gym equipment's There was a frequent electricity failures on one fine day. No whiskey glass, beer mug, wine glass etc has to be provided on request. No Ash try in the room lobby too. Sleep Quality 2* POOR. Has my room was 403 on 3rd floor below the hotel kitchen area. There was continues noise from 4 am to 12 pm The House keeping staff did a very good Job. But I could have been much better. Location of the Hotel is good enough to keep you connected to the local market. None of the 3 Air conditioners were working efficiently. Master bedroom was bit okay. Other bedroom was also bit okay. Drawing room AC has water leakage Drawing room sofas were very hard too Room wardrobe didn't have ample no of hangers and no instruction manual for safety lockers. Kitchen Refrigerator was not working in efficient manner No cotton or paper Towels near the washbasins No Dustbins inside the rooms. Only one common dustbin at the kitchen. No Hot water facially round the clock all five days No Hair dyers available in the room At least 2 electronic magnetic keys has to be given for 2 bedroom apartments Spa. I searched whole hotel for spa but I didn't even find it (I didn't get complementary Use of SPA) Breakfast 2* Poor. Breakfast starts at 8 and finishes at 10. Note: Most of the travelers comes to Goa for holiday this has to be extended till 11 Every day they one common menu Orange packaged juice, Corn Flakes, Fruits Pineapple and Papaya, Bread. Replace that 4 Slice bread Pop Up Toaster to grilled roller Toaster I guess they are many varieties of corn flakes in India now Fruits are good for health but they are many fruits available in the market today and I guess the mango season has not yet over Instead of Packed flavored Juice why not fresh juice Again many kind of bread are available like wheat, brown, Sweet bread, Fruit bread for kids. Didn't have any health or chocolaty drinks for kids Instead of using butter slice of 500 gms small cubes could have been used Does the Staff Has to search for a butter knife in the morning breakfast I still wonder was that a hotel or a road side dhaba Plates were too heavy in weight and small in size. Hot tea and coffee are served in plastic glass & even the water is served in toughened glass at-least here you could have served in stainless steel glass Dinning hotel tables very not uniform, even had a carron board inside the so called Cafe at Solaire dhaba Lunch / Dinner 2* Poor. Dishes were not labeled most of the days Half boiled rice all five days The Indian bread (Naan or Roti) was not up-to the mark. Most of them were like a rubber tyer I guess So called chef Mr. Deepak didn't know to cook other dishes. All five days there was panner or channa in the menu I was told to inform about the lunch or dinner plans in advance of 3 to 4 hours but the catering staff were not sure about the menu. Everyday I had end up having lunch or dinner outside the hotel I could overall rate it below 3* Average On the last final day at hotel they were forcing us to leave the hotel on time at 11. 00 AM (we had received almost 4 calls from the reception at the taxi is waiting for us and finally left at 11. 30 or 11. 45). What was the use of share the my return flight details before checking. Even this time I had to skip our paid lunch Taxi driver was also so arrogant that he was not ready to stop or fetch to any eatery shop The Only person who was good is Mr. LUCKY (Hotel Waiting staff).

Apartment type hotel but with spacious rooms


I stayed in Golden Palms hotel last year with my friends group. This hotel basically is apartment type hotel but rooms are spacious and good staff are very cooperative. Food quality is also good and it is situated in north Goa. 2 km from the world famous Calangute beach. Our stay in this hotel was nice and it was a good experience.

Comfortable stay with pleasing hospitality

Posted 27 Feb, 2014

The Hotel is exactly how it appears in the Pictures on his site. Once you enter the hotel its a nice place to be and very comfortable. The amenities and space is very good and quality of service is excellent. The Front office staff deserve a special mention as they take very good care of the guests and handled all our requests with keeping the great quality of service. We enjoyed the delicious food served by the Bamboo Restaurant and the hospitality is very good. The hospitality like the bed sheets, toiletries and interiors were very good and pleasing. If you are in Goa to enjoy the weather and time with amenities and leisure this is one of the best property to be in. This hotel gives you a combination of sea side enjoyment and in Hotel amenities as he beach is Just a kilometer away from the hotel with all the good markets for necessary items on the way. However, there are some recommendations I would like to make to the hotel is that the evening entertainments were repeated and can add variety and also make some other in house arrangements like a TT table or anything apart from the carom board arrangement. In all a very nice stay and would definitely want to repeat the stay in our next visit to Colva. Rooms away from the pool are better if you need a quite getaway . . Vegetarian Food need some spice and Variety(Since I belongs to Delhi I have tasted some good Veg Foods)

Good ambience and good staff

Posted 15 Sep, 2014

I went there in July 2014. I stayed there for 6 days. Booking was done through travel agent. Welcome drink was served on arrival. Ambience wise, it was very good. It was under package in which water bottle was included and wine was also there which was free of cost. They have their own spa, swimming pool, gym, etc. It was located in the middle of the city. All the beaches were near to 2 to 3 km of distance. Behaviour of the staff was also very good. Housekeeping was twice a day without asking. They have 2 bed room, one hall, and one kitchen. They also have separate bathroom for each bed room. They have LED in each room. I went there with my friends. We all were in a single room. Indian food was available there and they arranged different type of food for different people. I liked their breakfast most and also non-veg item I liked. Sightseeing trip was organized by them. It was value for money. Calangute beach as a place is very good. Hotel's location was very good. Appearance wise, it was excellent. Booking services were excellent. Food and drink was also excellent. Activities were excellent. Room was excellent. Overall, service was very good. It was a relaxing holiday. Food could be little bit improved.

Located at one of the best spot in Colva

Posted 11 Oct, 2013

One of the Best Hotel in South Goa. Golden Palms is located at one of the best spot in Colva. Unless you tell your friend about the location where you are, just show him/her the image of pool view & ask for the place. I assure he will tell it is not inside India or He will tell I have never been to place like this inside India. Apart from the surroundings, the best part is food. You will get varieties in all. So, No need to worry about availability of Sea food. This Hotel is so near to Fisherman's place. You could enjoy the beauty of Village & Fisherman's life here . . My wife & I were there in the wee hours of morning at beach side. We saw lot of fish mongers. You could enjoy the water sports at this beach from the month of November. Best place to take your couple. :)
