“A Basic Budget hotel with Awesome Location”
Reviewed 16 February 2012

Firstly let me be very frank with you all that before checking in into this hotel I have visited this site various times and have gone through all the reviews, still was not very sure whether I shall experience the same. The hotel is in stone throwing distance from Colva beach. We took a front face ac cottage room which has a serene view of the sea, standard room and basic facilities. The ladies at the reception were very cooperative. Though it is an GTDC hotel, it organised North Goa, South Goa and Cruise tours at real discount rates. The in house restaurant "Little Goa" is above average, though you can find many other restaurants outside and can also try beach shacks. To sum it up if you want to spend a peaceful holiday in south Goa combining moderate budget and great location, this hotel can be a very good option.

The GTDC Colva Residency is the only hotel bang on Colva beach. It has rooms to suit all pocket sizes, from non ac to ac cottages-rates ranging from Rs 900-2800/-. The hotel has standard facilities and has very prompt services and cordial behavior towards guests. The hotel arranges for tourists - dolphin viewing, cruise rides and north and south goa tours at discounted rates. A pre paid taxi from the Madgao station to the hotel charges 300-400/-. Around the hotel you can find bikes, cars and scooters on hire for travelling. The Little Goa restaurant in the hotel serves all kind on meals including some authentic Goan cuisine are normal rates. Though people prefer eating on the beach shacks, but if you are on a budgeted holiday and want to enjoy good food this is the place to eat. In all if you want a peaceful tour of South Goa park yourself here and explore.

Room Tip: All rooms are good.

The hotel is located very close to colva beach, From the front room you can see the entire sea view. Hotel is a budget hotel. i got a complementary site seeing coupon for south goa and cruise ticket by the hotel. Staying in this hotel was a great experience as whenever we wished we went to the beach to enjoy have the fun with water sports.

Room Tip: select front room to see the beach view.

Located right next to the famous Colva beach and in the centre of Colva town beside the bus, taxi & auto stands.
All rooms in the hotel are sea facing. The hotel is itself sprawled across a large area with large lawns in front and behind.
Rooms and bathrooms were quite big in size and added to this was a big sea facing balcony with each room. However maintenance could be better as the rooms had a slightly mouldy appearance befitting a government run hotel.
In house restaurant was average and slightly expensive. However, there are adequate eating options just outside the hotel.
However, considering the price and the location, the hotel is completely value for money and makes your stay in Colva worthwhile.

We[couple] went this Hotel in june 2011 with confused minds,as Govt.hotels are not so reputed.
But this is Best exception.
Location is fabulous,just next to Colva,Longest beach, & most prominent reason of worth.
Rooms are good.Restaurent was also good.
Counter desk people were helpful & arranged hired bike for us.Additional benefit of free trip to South & north was good treat.
Actually all Goa tourism hotels are located at best places in goa.anyway will try next time too

Room Tip: Must try for Location

Certainly location wise it was the best and most conveniently located hotel, We certainly expected more from the hotel room. Though rooms were clean but the ventilation was lacking which made the rooms suffocating. Room service was not proper and we had to call up at least 10 times to get something fixed. I would suggest everyone NEVER TO TAKE COMPLIMENTARY MEALS SPECIALLY BREAKFAST. Its awful and hardly filling. Otherwise receptionist was helpful (in organizing the taxi, cruise information etc.) restaurant room service was quite prompt. overall hotels main value lies in its location and the scenic view it offers.

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.
