Right on the Calangute beach, this is a government property where everything happens at a leisurely pace. The rooms are small but nice and some rooms offer lovely sea view of Calangute beach.

The USP is that everything is close by. The Calangure market, Beach, shacks and water sports. The hotel doesn't have a private beach but you can not complain as the back gate opens right on the beach.

The restaurant is good and have a very affordable menu. The surprise package was the live Bollywood music where the singer sang Jagjit Singh's Ghazals and some songs from Shahrukh Khan movies.

Overall a good place for family but a little costly and worn out. The rooms are not well furnished and it seems the hotel is running on tight budget. Maintenance is poor. A little investment can jazz this place up but then it;s a government hotel and has the best location in Calangute.

We went to calangute residency on Aug 31 , 2011 and stayed for 4 days. We chose that beacause it is at the shore of Calangute beach and quite famous also. It is a govt run hotel. We booked a cottage. View from the gallery was very beautiful & picturesque.

But service provided here is not so good. Cleaning of floor, utensils is not so good. Bathrooms are untidy. Balcony is very dirty. Staff is not so friendly.

Restaurant was shut down for repairs. Breakfast provided was very bad. They dint even cover the food while bringing from restaurant to the rooms, even if it is raining. So we prefer to take coupons which you can reimburse from the nearby Sagar hotel.

Rooms are big but so suffocated that you need AC. The AC may or may not work. It is also not sure that they will provide you the remote of AC. When our AC stopped working they even dint have another vacant room. Moreover they told us we cannot do anything until the manager in the morning come. Also rooms are crowded by useless furniture.

At the night time frogs can easily come into your room. Voices of cats and frogs can disturb you whole night. Moreover there is also danger of mosquitoes in the room.

One good thing is hotel has buses for north Goa and south Goa sightseeing at reasonable prices. They also provide a guide for the entire trip.

Stayed for six days... first shock at check-in: restaurant shut down for repairs so a tie up with a neighbourhood restaurant acts as "room service". Apparently the power back up is manual so black outs can last 10 to 15 minutes at a stretch...

The building is in a dilapitated state and I was extremely depressed the first day and seriously considered shifting (we were booked for six nights)...

The next day the view, the breeze the sound of the sea started taking my mind away from the property and the next five days weren't bad. The location is mind blowing but if anyone wants to stay in this property, I would strongly suggest a long stay so that the fantastic location has time to lift your spirits from the initial depression that the property will cause!

Do remember the only habitable rooms are the front - sea view rooms on the first and second floor (about 16 of them). I would not suggest experimenting with any other room / cottage.

Room Tip: The only rooms worth taking are the Front Sea Facing rooms.

Don't let the rave reviews here encourage you to go to this hotel, nor any "Advice" by travel agents. Yes this hotel is v popular, located on a very popular beach (although Calangute beach how lost its charm) .

The moment we were lead into the room (keep in mind we had low expectations in the first place since its a Government run hotel) we realized that we can't stay here (yet we did for 1 night). The room was shabby, not well maintained, lying on the bed for a few minutes immediately gave us the itches and rashes. Curtains were dirty, and the room had a damp smell to it, later at night lizards crawled into the room, along with other creepy crawlers. Washroom while clean, was very inconvenient to use (broken pipe, etc).

We asked for another room, and were shown a different one which was slightly better, but triple the price, we weighed our options and decided to move.

Swimming pool was clean and acceptable. They have a spa, i didn't try it but it looked like they knew what they are doing.

FYI, Calangute beach has turned into a terrible, commercialized beach. Its beauty totally destroyed. I suggest going to South Goa where you will find better beaches and better resorts.

By next day we couldn't take it anymore and moved to another hotel (detailed in my other review)
