The management and staff are all brilliant but I have to mention Captain Joao, Kevin and Antony who looked after us so well at breakfast and also Rosie who stayed past her leaving time...

We enjoyed our stay at the resort. This was our second trip to the resort in 2 years. The food varieties is excellent. Food id always perfect taste. We enjoy the live music with the dinner and the choice of western music. This time the set up for Holi dinner at the beach was very impressive.

The resort is nice with a huge golf course and a beautiful beach. The breakfast could be better and the staff is good. The south is Goa is very pleasant but far from all the attraction which is fine as this place has less crowd

A few days in Ramada in the bliss of uninterrupted life. Just lying on the beach benches ..munching on some cruncy fried prawns. Staring at the deep blue waters with no agenda is the best experience only Ramada can offer. The sprawling green lawn and the pool adds to the magic of this place.
