Colva Residency
Ranked #7 of 18 Hotels in Colva
Reviewed 24 November 2011

Though it is very close to the beach, they did not offer the services that we pay for.

Pros -
Location - Next to the beach.
Good complementary breakfast

Cons -
Staff was very rude - they speak about many rules when you ask for any favor. Being a Govt. residency, it is run against rules rather for customer satisfaction.
Rooms were not well maintained - they appear very old
Air conditioning was making noise through out.
One can get many better private hotels in the same budget.
Though they claim that the rooms are beach facing, there is no as such balcony view to get the feel. One should come out of the room to actually feel the beach.

We planned very late for a trip to Goa. Our first in a bus. Lot of cajoling by colleagues didn't go in vain - the Volvo sleepers from Pune were quite comfortable and clean (though I'd prefer a train anyday). The hotel was nested by the sea - Colva is a nice, long whitish-sand beach in Goa which was right in front of the hotel. Speed boats and paragliding at a stone-throw distance from the hotel. The rates were very reasonable and the services were better than commensurate, quite friendly staff. Basic facility, nothing ornate, but tidy. A beach shack (Bob's) and a few restaurants nearby - we frequented 49ers. And they arrange the trips around Goa, the river cruise et al.

Room Tip: The first floor sea facing rooms have a nice view.

though we did not stay here. We visited this property during our South Goa 1 day tour by GTDC. Hotel Building looks good from outside. Reception & restaurant are spacious. the receptionist is good. I used their wash room which was big 'n clean. we bought a red wine from the restaurant.

It is near to the beach. a good lush green lawn follows. great beach view rooms with balcony.

Room Tip: choose a front sea view room on first floor.

The best part of this hotel is its location at Colva Beach and almost all the rooms are facing beach. The rooms are big enough but not very neat and clean. However, with the tariff that they charge, you cannot expect star treatment. Nevertheless all the basic facilities are there and the property has enough space for parking and gardens.
The restaurant is Ok but you can have better option just outside the hotel. They also provide discounts for north Goa and South Goa tour including river cruise in the evening. Hence, in overall it becomes very cheap by staying at this hotel. Moreover, tours conducted by GTDC are reliable. I was able to see other GTDC hotels at Calangute beach but I found this hotel much better. This is an ideal place for a family vacation. Even if you do not go anywhere, you can spend the whole day enjoying at beach, which is just in front of your rooms.

Don't go the colva residency with high expectations. The location is good - you won't get a hotel closer to the beach. Rooms are basic but clean. But that's where it ends. Room service is pathetic. The in-house restaurant has been outsourced and the people running it have the least concern about guests. Which is ok, if you are not traveling with family and kids.This place is an absolute NO for couples with toddlers.
For others, if you are looking for basic, clean rooms close to all the eateries and main beach at colva then i guess it's ok. Just don't have too much expectations from the service.

Room Tip: ask for a sea view in the old building
