the hotel is no different than what you see. staff are friendly and courteous at all times. wish they had more itemsin their menu. if u want a complete different experience of Goa with peace you need to.stay here . it is in south goa, so far away from party places like Baga n Calangute. but one of the best stay ever
We stayed at Golden Palms, Colva, Goa for 2 nights, 3 days which was very pleasant experience. We visited during first week of June, so there was not much crowd in resort. We were welcomed by the reception staff by offering welcome drink. The staff seemed to be very polite & fast in processing our requests/queries. They well directed us when we were on our way to the hotel. Our room was pool facing and the room was very neat & clean. The resort has "Bamboo Restaurant" which offers great & delicious food including the buffet breakfast in the morning. The resort is very close to Colva Beach, so you can enjoy walking to the Beach anytime. This place is perfect destination stay for family & couples.
Overall, we really enjoyed our stay in this resort and wish to visit this place again during our next visit to Goa.
"Well-run hotel close to a quiet stretch of beach"
We stayed for a week's sun escaping from February darkness and rain - this was perfect. 40 mins transfer from the airport, sitting alone surrounded by fields three minutes' walk from Benaulim beach, uncrowded with several good beach shacks serving delicious food inc Goan specialities. The hotel has a double pool, spa with massages on site, very good food. Guests tend to be Russian couples/families or groups of Indian tourists, most on all-inclusive deals. We ate out on the beach watching the amazing sunsets, every night.
Decent rooms with a marvelous sea view, coconut trees and fishing boats around. 50mt is what you walk to touch the ocean.
The restaurant as well needs a special mention bcoz the cooking was amazing.. be it a fish,lobster or veg..yum!
Rooms are tidy but internally might need some overhaul...a little outdated may be for the price one pays.
This is a great place to stay! The hotel has been refurnished and looks new.An excellent breakfast ,which is included in the Tariff is an add-on.Pool is good and has a restaurant right in front of it.Some rooms have patios though a few open to a garbage pile.Don' dare to keep the windows open in the night.If you do,will know what mosquitos can do to your vacation.
Having said that there is a concern with the location.Colva as such has good shopping places and restaurants and the beach used to be very good until few years back.Not anymore.I remember going there back in 2007 and how we enjoyed the beach.Now, Its one of the most crowded beach and is full of litter all around with sewage being drained right into the beach.Not a place anyone would enjoy.This time we went there on an evening and returned in 30 mints.Had to travel 1-1.5 hrs everyday to reach a good beach or a tourist spot.I wouldn't recommend staying in Colva unless you are ready to spend 2-3 hours in commute everyday.
Friendly, helpful staff, lovely room overlooking pool, great location, 5mins to beach and good beach shack. Had breakfast, snack and drinks menus. Dinner could be ordered in although found good food along the beach and in the town.
This resort has a fantastic location, 2 mins walk to the Colva beach. Lovely pool, kids enjoyed a lot, staff had some confusions earlier but once sorted they were very helpful and mannered. Prompt service in arranging cabs, sight seeing, food as well. Worth the money spent in this resort.
Had a wonderful experience of staying at this place. We went with family recently in Oct 14. Was expecting a below average to extremely poor stay arrangements. Was pleasantly surprised to find the rooms in a very good clean condition. The linen off course was not really up to the mark but was changed immediately when requested. The room cleaning was good. Restaurant facility, ummm...., better if you just go out walking and use the nearby restaurants. Location is superb. Bang on the beach. Just walk around 100 steps and you are on the beach. The rooms have beach view. We had non AC double occupancy rooms with balcony. Had a fantastic beach view.
