Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Calangute at the Casa Severina. The staff were extrememly friendly and always greeted us everytime we saw them. The room was generously spaced and very comfortable. The location was a very short walk to the beach and the staff were extremely helpful in planning possible adventures whilst we were there. It allowed us to relax and enjoy our time in Calangute and think about the important things, like drinks to be ordered.
The restaurant area served up some good food offerings and it was a pleasure chatting with the lead waiter/chef there. Location is a bit far from the station, being located in the north of Goa, but there is no shortage of bookable day trips to explore the north and south regions. We did the experience checking out Old Goa, a spice plantation and some of the beaches.
Hotel is very noise, full of kids and poor choice of music. On the 15 of December they will become "Hard Rock" hotel with pop and disco music. It's located far from the beach more then
30 min walk . Poor breakfast and very expensive drinks.
Traveller from Vancouver BC.
No description for the hotel available, OPENING SOON! The Holiday Inn North Goa Calangute is opening in 4th quarter of 2012.<More
Restaurant experience can be improved. Same menu everyday makes it little boring for people who stay for longer duration. Room Service needs improvement, its very slow. Rest all, its a perfect hotel and good to go with.
At first they gave us very bad rooms.... One room smelled very bad and had no balcony or one room was like a warehouse...Then we had a possibilities to speak with manager (who was very nice person) and she gave us the proper room. Pool was okay, but quite many broken places, what caused problems to my child, 3 years old.Breakfast place was very nice , even live with live music,but food choise was quite average.
Late chek out until one clock was very good and many thanks for that.
I was wondering if I made the right choice as I had not heard about this place earlier. The first hour of our arrival there settled all our apprehensions. The staff were helpful like no other hotel I have stayed in (My work involves travel and I am in a hotel for about 10 - 15 days in a month). This was the first time we traveled with our six month old son and we were overjoyed when the staff volunteered to take care of the baby while we had breakfast. We felt taken care of in this place.
This northern coastal town boasts one of the most popular beaches in Goa, so don't be surprised by the presence of crowds, as well as hawkers, souvenir stands, and cheap beach shack eateries. Crowds are at a peak around Christmas and the New Year, as well as in May, before the monsoon season kicks in. Once that arrives, expect rough seas through September.
