We stayed here in Feb for a wedding and really enjoyed it. The staff were great, the food was nice and it's very clean. The pool area and beach are perfect for a relaxing holiday.

My wife and I celebrated our wedding at the Ramada back in November last year. It was a fabulous time and the hotel staff was super helpful and made sure everything went well. All our guests had a fantastic time: renovated rooms, nice swimming pool, and great beach with beautiful sunsets. All in all, great memories, a super hotel and a fantastic helpful staff that caters to all your needs. Fully recommend the place, whether for a special occasion or just a for a week of relaxation, with family or friends!

We stayed at the Ramada for 4 nights after touring around Karnatake. The place is ideal for chilling out..with access to a wonderfully sandy beach and range of swimming pools.
The staff are very courteous, well presented and very helpful. By the second day of our stay the staff in the restaurant were aware of likes at breakfast and made a point of ensuring that we had the appropriate hot drinks and fruits that we liked at breakfast.
The food was well presented and tasty.
great stay and very likely to return

Well my stay in Ramada was very comfortable. My experience with this hotel was much beyond and very different from others who have been here. After my check out from the hotel, I was dropped to the Airport by their cab. After reaching the airport I realized that I forgot my wallet in the locker in the room. I called the hotel reception. Not only did they find my wallet, but they also took the pains of sending somebody to me at the airport with the wallet. I am very glad that I stayed with them. With my 5 nights and 6 days trip in Goa.. I did not feel the need to leave the hotel... It pretty much has everything.

Room Tip: I stayed in the superior room which was garden facing... It was pretty good.

I would say that Ramada promises a marvellous and luxurious vacation to all its guests. I had a 5 day stay starting 8 Feb 12 and believe me the stay was a heavenly experience. The hotel is beautifull, large, is lush green and well landscaped and above all clean and tidy around every nook and corner. The staff is courteous and welcoming. The food is good but there are less north Indian choices. Its more of a english or continental menu.
The best part is the beach is visible from the hotel and is barely a 3 minutes walk. It superbly clean and we were not able to find even a single piece of unwanted material there.
Water sports is there at the beach itself so no need of strolling around to find a vendor.

I believe all reviews about the hotel that its not clean or under construction are a things of the past and you can truly relish your holidays there and have a really memorable stay.

This lovely resort, with a clear and clean stretch of white sand beachis most hospitable and welcoming. The basics are like any other good 5 star property in GOA. But few unique features are:
the dinner time music- amazing country music or folk music. which u cannot get out of ur head for about a yr untill its time to go there again.
2. the beach and the beach side golf course!- the landscaped area looks gorgeous
3. the swimming pool with the small bar built into it.
4. the variety at the buffet

all in all the package is great and the services are excellent. Will plan a trip again, pretty soon :)

Room Tip: take the beach facing ones.

Just got back from this resort yesterday and I am gutted, me and my boyfriend had such a brilliant time, the staff were fantastic, couldn't do enough for us, dont book sea view room, completely not worth it, cant see the sea and is more money and the room is not very nice, but went to reception and got our room changed straight away. Only thing is the prices of food and drink, can get so much cheaper if walk 100 yards so they should think about changing prices of drinks especially if they want more people to hang about there and have drinks, a third of the price on shacks

Room Tip: Dont ask for sea view room, pool rooms are alot nicer and are quiet
