“Excellent for Family Stay”
Reviewed 28 May 2011

We recently visited Goa on a large family tour of 25 persons , and had made our group accomodation at Anup Holiday Homes, and to our surprise ( comapring previous Goa tours ) we were taken by surprise to the warm , codial and excellent hospitality extended by Mr Desai and his Support staff at Anup Holiday Homes. Right from very early morning pick up to daily meals , sight seeing , excellent homely food to drop till the station all was in perfect condition and had not to be followed up. The food quality was excptional and very different from typical goan food . A very nice place to be with family , very secure , clean rooms and cooperative staff. However the rooms need a bit of renovation in near future. Excellent walkable distance from Calangute main beach , market area at reach. A big thank you to Mr Desai and his team at Anup Holidays for making this tour a memorable one and more importantly we now dont have to worry next time for locating hotels / services / food etc and are sure a call to Anup Holiday Homes and we are taken care.

A very comfortable place to stay. Clean and really close to the Calungute beach. Affordable tariffs even in the peak season! Really good room service facilities, swimming pool and the restaurant. Will surely stay with Anup holiday homes again!

April 22.04.2011: Check in dates.
Room offered to us was clean. Surprisingly bathroom are bigger than rooms.
We stayed there for 2 days and checkd out on 25th April. Best part of hotel is it is 10 minutes walking distance from Calangut beach.
Bike hire is available from hotel itself. Staff is friendly. Almost all rooms have a balcony. Swimming pool is pretty small.
IN all if your budget is tight this is a recommended budget hotel. Do negotiate room rates before checking in.

It has been my second visit to Goa and the amount of comfort, conveneince, facilities and value for money, that it offers-is unparallel. The tariffs are very nominal considering the facilities it offers including breakast, swimming pool, party room, camp fire (TnC apply), etc. This is one of the nearest hotel to Calungute beach. Hotel management also helps in arrange for local sight seeing and water sports at very justified price. Staff is well trained and polite. Unlike other hotels, this hotel has no policy of hidden charges, etc. Rooms here not only include single/double bed option, but separate apartments are also available for group of friends who want to stay together. Final Verdict: Best place for stay
