Absolutely disgusting place: Cockroaches in the room, filthy towels and sheets, dirty walls and furniture, sewer smell in the toilet, a dead rat in the garden etc. Indian people were swimming in the pool with clothes on and the pool water was green almost the whole week so we could not even use the pool. The most absurd thing was that we had to pay luxury tax 100 rupies per day (hah, hah). This resort is not for western people. Do not spoil your vacation as we did, go somewhere else!

One of the best hotel in South Goa .I went with family here in December 2011 and stayed thr for 7 days.Benaulim beach (one of the best family beach in Goa)is just 1 km away.. a lot shops n good restaurants r available nearby..full time taxi services r available anytime outside the main gate which are very reasonable for sightseeing across Goa..ayurvedic massage was superb which is just infront of the main entrance.if u get bore eating outside cooking facilities r available in all rooms..overall a very good experience.

I'm quite surprised by the great reviews here as my experience was quite different. The resort is very beautiful with a nice pool and well maintained gardens and activities. The good part is that the room has a kitchenette so we could cook and the cost is reasonable. However the service leaves much to be desired. Let me elaborate.

- We had requested for a ground floor room before arrival. On arriving, the guy at the reception (Steven/ Stephen) refused to give us that and lied thru his teeth and refused to agree that we had spoken to him before coming and asked for a ground floor room. After a lot of pressurizing, he admitted to it
- The reception staff could do better if they learn to smile
- rooms are filled with mosquitoes, i don't know if that's a Goa problem or a resort specific problem but they can do with some pest control
- maintenance was poor. The towel rod came out on the first day and quite a few lights in the room were fused. We had to request multiple times before they were changed.
- housekeeping was horrendous. rooms were cleaned so badly that they looked unclean, towels were not changed even though we left them on the floor, beds were badly made. Though we complained many times there was little improvement. When i had a huge showdown with them and threatened them that i will put a bad review on tripadvisor unless they improve the service, they grudgingly sent someone to re-clean my room.

All in all, a pretty resort but can do with better service personnel.

Stayed in RGBC, benalium in 2011, its simply awesome. Provides comfort, good pool and activities. Well-maintained with lots of palms and greenery. Rooms are more like 1BHK - kitchen, fridge .. basic amenities. Quite walkable distance to benalium beach. Lots of restaurant around it. Above all, its really economical, we stayed there for 1 week. Usually foreigners can be seen in this resort. Cleanliness is at its perfect.

Room Tip: Try to book through country vacations, can provide good discount on room rate
