"Friendly staff, excellent location and well appointed services"
Neelam's is a well established hotel in the heart of Calangute and is definitely worth the three-four star rating. I arrived at 8am after 24 hours of flights and they fixed up a room for me straight away (before normal check-in), as I was in dire need of rest. The photos on Expedia are accurate as to the style and condition of the rooms.
The pool and indoor areas of the hotel are in good condition, however, are probably not used as much as they could. There is a small disco on some nights and entertainment/music in the evening. There is a small bar on the first floor that serves basic food, water and beverages till the morning, which was great after coming home from a bar or club to pick up a bottle or two of water.
After some sleep, I tried out the ayurvedic massage to re-enliven my soul and relax into Goa. The massage was a good one with a focus on oil based healing, conducted by a trained specialist from Kerela. The food in the restaurant is varied and there are staples for continental preferences on the a-la-carte menu. Along with a choice of Indian breakfast options included in the package, you also get eggs, juice and tea. I didn't try out dinner but from a small sample of the food at Neelam's menu, it was well prepared. However, as it is a hotel, the rates can be more than found in local restaurants.
The staff are friendly and helpful. The gym is well appointed, however, take your own sweat towel. The location is close to shops, beach and markets.
"WONDERFUL RESORT- IF ITS GOA THAN ITS ONLY ESTELLO"
We were a group of 16 booked through Expedia , check in was easy and quick , staff were polite and helpful at all times , Breakfast is very good and on the beach , the exclusive arrangements at the beach were very comfortable for just relaxing ... nothing of concern except the approach road to the resort was very narrow and congested .
All the staff were very helpful and were always cheerful . The resort was huge with excellent rooms and cottages ... the pool could have been a bit bigger , but its OK ... you have an excellent beach to swim ...
If you wish to have a Memorable hassle free stay at Goa than it is at Estello ... I would come back again and again to the same resort as its between the two happening beaches - Calangute and Baga ..
It would have been nice if 1 Hour late check out was given to us as it was a big group of 16 persons... never mind .. We understand the pressure on the front office in this busy Season.. Thank You Estello & the Satff
Our stay at Citrus near Calangute beach proved to be a very good decision. Being close to Baga and Calangute beaches, everything is in walking distance from the Calangute beach and driving length from Baga. The hotel staff were warm and helpful. Room was quite comfortable with all basic facilities you can expect from a 3 star. Citrus experience hits you as soon as you enter the room with green and yellow shades, etc. The pool is small, but good. Buffet breakfast at the restaurant (there is only one) was good but service at restaurant needs improvement in terms of promptness (servers seem confused at times). Variety in food was ok, would have loved to see more variety. Overall, it was a cosy, comfortable stay at Calangute. The property being in middle of the commercial area, the views from rooms are not that great but who has the time to stay indoors when you are in North Goa! Citrus also offers a workable gym and spa along with pool and other games.

The resort is a great place to stay for family or a group trip. The spread of the resort isn't that big to call it a resort; so if you are looking for a lonely and private place; this wont be it; but otherwise it's really a nice place. The structure and layout of resort is pretty well designed and you would enjoy almost all of amenities/ facilities of a good resort.
This boutique resort welcomes you to Goa - the land of sun, sea and surf. Set amidst lush landscaped gardens, the resort …More
Sheer luxury! We were in the Indulgence Suite, and it was fantastic. The bed was comfortable, with a couch in front of it. The Sony LCD TV had a Bose Home Theatre with it. Coming to the adjoining Jacuzzi area, there were all kinds of amenities, like a Lavazza Expresso Maker, another TV with a Bose Home Theatre, and a very nice bathroom. Hotel is at a walking distance from the beach, which made it better. The Staff here was the best. I have booked hotels though websites, and everytime, have received biased treatment from the staff. It seems the guests who book directly with the hotel get better treatment. It was different at Fahrenheit. We were treated very well, with the Manager arranging for food after we arrived at 2AM at night! We have already decided to spend our Anniversaries here, and are recommending this room to any couple who would like to visit Goa in the near future.
Very nice place, the staff is very friendly, rooms are clean and the food is good. Calangut beach is walking distance, there are many places nearby to eat, taxi stand is jut outside, car/bike rental is walking distance.
We stayed in Goan heritage for eight nights in Sep.. and had a wonderful stay! We got to know of the hotel by word of mouth and we are glad we decided to stay there. The hotel has remarkable staff who are always there to help you the way they can... smiling all the way!
