“Ruffles beach resort Candolim.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 January 2012

Our stay at Ruffles has been very enjoyable, the staff are always very helpful and try to accomodate you in anyway they can. The rooms are basic, bedding changed regular, they have a television, A C,plus a ceiling fan and a good sized fridge stocked with drinking water. We also recommend the Ruffles bar and resturant situated at the front of the hotel, this is run separate to the hotel and owned by an english couple.( Mark and Lynn). I recommend the cheese pie and proper chips, as there's only so much curry you can eat in a week. Ruffles is just a short walk to the beach.

We have stayed at Ruffles Resort for a few seasons now, and just returned after yet another wonderful holiday. The hotel room is basic but it has a working fridge, aircon and ceiling fan, the rooms are cleaned daily with clean bed linen and towels. Some guests did complain that their rooms were not cleaned but that was because they did not leave their room key, a fact which is clearly displayed at reception. There were Russian, British, Scandanavian and Indian guests and to be honest the way some of the GUESTS spoke to the staff was appalling, they were rude and aggressive towards them when there was no need. To be honest we have always found ALL the staff helpful and they can not do enough for you, but then we speak to them in a civil way. We have read some of the reviews for this hotel and find it hard to believe we are talking about the same place
The hotel is located in the ideal place with bars & restaurant within walking distance.

Room Tip: Rooms nearer the pool are quieter but the bar closes at a reasonable time anyway.

The staff is very bad, we had some issue with room and went to complain at the reception. The staff members first refused to help us and then when we enforce that they need to help, the manager starting fighting with us. He used foul language and even threatened us that he will not let us get out of Goa.
There was no one at our help and the manager said he does not care whether we stay at the hotel or not and if we want we could even check out and take our money back. It has been the worst experience at any hotel across the country. We have never ever seen the Hotel staff trying to man handle the guests.

Room Tip: Do not even try to visit this resort with your family. There are better places in north goa

It may not come across a very clean property on the face of it but is a great value for money. Its ideal for bargain travellers but convenient for only those with a transport of their own. The pool side restaurant is simply fantastic.

Room Tip: Bragain, view the rooms before checkin.

The Ruffles Beach Resort for me and the family was the worst ever experience, we stayed for 6 nights, we only came back to the hotel to sleep and have a shower that was cold in the mornings..... rooms are basic and i mean basic, toilet,shower worked ok, no water pressure. ants on the floor now and again. Went to buy ant and moint. killer, that did the trick. No room service, towels are dirty, fridge has been here since the age of christ. The only good thing about this hotel is its location. Staff are slow and low moral. Russions stay here the most. Pool for the kids was ok, water levels are over 4.5ft in the main pool, the kids pool is always dirtys my kids never entered the kids pool. Breakfast the basic, 2 bread slices and tea thats it. other items you have to pay for. Bike hire form the resort is great rs250 per day. Again the location is the only best attraction, 200 meters from the pool and not from the main entrance. If you stay here go to the beach via the pool area. Best shacks in Candolim for us are Cludinas and Bobbys just now beach road, candolim. best food and drink ever, good sunbeds too. you can speak to the staff at the shacks and have great fun.

Dear Sir,
we have a solar water heater the water is hot 24 x 7 always maybe you did not know how to operate it, you never informed the reception about it , yes the room is basic but clean with Aircon, Tv, minibar & very clean sheets changed every day, what more can you get for that prise, you should have stayed in a 5star hotel with luxurious rooms, i hope you know the prise is 10 times more, yes the breakfast is basic like Tea, Coffee, Bread butter & Toast butter jam which is complimentary, we also have a choice of paid breakfast.
The pool is always clean we do not agree at all with your statement about the pool.
WE DO OUR BEST ALWAYS TO SATISFY OUR GUEST.
