Kingstork Beach Resort
Ranked #18 of 116 Hotels in Calangute
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 July 2012

We stayed with family for 5 days and this place really rocks. It is beautiful, quite and peaceful. Kingstork resort is the perfect place to relax. The rooms are neat and clean. The room service is great. The resort is well maintained and is well managed. Food at their restaurant is extraordinary. The menu wasn't elaborate because of the off season (mainly Continental and Goan food) but whatever they served was excellent. Kingstork is a good place for family and friends.

“We travel the world in search of peace and come back home to find it”. Kingstork epitomises this fact to the core. Never for once we felt we were in a “beach resort”as the wonderful owners Stanley and Ruena made us feel so much at home. It’s always a pleasure to have such warm and loving hosts.

Kingstork is conveniently located on the Holiday Street which is the resort hub of Calangute. The cleanest part of Calangute beach is just a minute’s walk from the resort.
The rooms are impeccably clean, spacious, well lit and with all the modern amenities one would require. The mini-bar was well stocked and reasonable priced. We opted to stay in one of the ground-floor rooms which have a small, yet cosy porch.
The swimming pool, though not big, is decently sized and is cleaned daily.
The staff is ever-smiling, efficient and their service standards are note-worthy. Our room was religiously cleaned every morning. The bedding and towels were changed daily as well.
The complimentary breakfast at the restaurant included fruit juice, fruit bowl, eggs made to order with toast, jam & butter and a cup of tea/coffee.
The kitchen staff is very cordial. Kiran, who served us during our stay, was very cheerful. The service was efficient and fast & the food was lip-smacking delicious. You should definitely try their vindaloo (chic/fish/prawns) and the fish-curry rice. Yumm!!
The laundry service is very quick, efficient and the rates are very economical.

We stayed there for 4N5D which whizzed-by pretty fast. I guess Time has this uncanny knack of sprinting whenever you wish it’d crawl. Moments pass by and the beautiful memories are all that stay. Memories which will forever be etched in our hearts thanks to Stanley, Ruena, their wonderful team .. and their lovely li’l abode they call Kingstork.

And yes, during your stay, you will surely cross paths with Mama and Black. Though you wont be able to communicate with them over email/phone later, rest assured, they’ll be your friends for life : )

I was there for 4 days. i was a bit skeptical at first but after the first few hours the resort proved itself. Excellent staff in the resort as well as the restaurant. Very accommodating staff an excellent place for value for money. The restaurant may seem small but is one of the most hygienic places I have seen so far in Goa and the food is cooked very well. The beach is just behind the property around 5 min walking distance. The place is quiet and peaceful surrounded by a small mini garden you would feel as if your are in a 4 or 5 star resort.

Room Tip: All the rooms are good

This is a wonderfully located hotel that is made special by the warmth of the owners.

Pros:
Simple and clean rooms. All the same size. Some are double beds, whereas some have twin beds.
Location at the junction of Holiday street and the beach road, yet quite peaceful.
Just a short walk away from the beach and shacks. Between calangute and candolim.
Laundry service that is reasonable.
Staff very courteous, especially the owners, Stanley and his wife.
Food decent in the restaurant. The complementary breakfast was simple but perfect.
Wonderful manicured grounds.

Cons:
No room service. This is to prevent ants in the room. Still, would have been nice to have tea on our balcony.
The pool though cleaned regularly, seemed a bit murky. Probably due to the trees and plants around. Did not stop me from getting in multiple times though.
Cane bed does creak a lot which can be disturbing at night if you tend to toss and turn a bit.

Overall, definitely a place I would visit again, especially during the season. During the offseason the area does tend to quiet down, and the beach shacks in that area are also closed. However if you want the peace, then it's perfect.
Thanks to Stanley and his Wife for a wonderful week at the Kingstork.

Just back form a 16 night stay at the Kingstork and can not fault it beach and shops on your doorstep. Stanley and Ruena are fantastic hosts and nothing is to much trouble for them and they have a hard working staff team who are always ready to oblige.Rooms cleaned daily and all rooms have a safe for any one who wants peace of mind. If you are unlucky and cant get a room ( as you have to book early ) You shoud still go and try their restaurant ran by Raymond who is an excelent chef. I have already booked for next January 2013 and have started to count the days. Once again big thanks to Stanley and Ruena see you next year.
