Ruffles Beach Resort - and alternatives?

We have booked flights to Goa for 3 weeks in March 2019.

Having looked around previously while in Candolim we were looking at booking a room at Ruffles Beach Resort at a cost of 52528 rupees for 21 nights BUT you have to pay the full amount when you book which I don't feel comfortable with.

Have you booked with them? Have you had any issues?

Or are there any alternatives you would recommend for a similar price? It could be more basic than Ruffles Beach Resort.

Thank-you

Could you not just pay a 20% deposit?

I agree, I wouldn't and have never been asked to pay for the whole amount upfront.

The Santana beach resort gets a lot of good reviews and it's down that end of Candolim.

Thank-you for the recommendation.

It shows 'no availability' on the website, but I have emailed them.

Once we have flights sorted we are booking here again for 1st 2 week in March. Ignore the tariff charges, you should get a better price dealing with Judith via email. PM me for more info if required.

Thanks Beth, not a bad price for those facilities.

I'll stick with my Rs1200 a night guest house...;-)

What do you get for that sort of money? A room with an en suite bathroom and a fridge? Is there a safe? Do you book direct? Can you share the name? We are keen to look at all options. And we love the beach so not too bothered about a pool. Sorry for so many questions!
