“Good Experiance”
Reviewed 30 November 2009

I went to this place with my partner, we are looking for a place which was affordable with AC rooms and a pool and was not situated on the noise Baga road. This hotel is just rifgtky located beside the baga bridge with rooms overlooking the baga river.

It was a quite non frill hotel. The rooms were clean, the AC and lights worked with ample electricl connection for laptop and charging. The is hot and cold water available 10 to 10. The hotel does not have a restraurent of its own, there is a restrairent downstairs named Hibuscus who serves good food and has a small sweet bar. The pool is clean and an nicely maintained.

One can do finishing as well as it is right beside the river. The hotel staff were well mannered and not overtly courteous like other upstart hotels.

They have a check out time of 11 and they allowed us to utilize the pool and the restaurant much after we checked out and were good enough to come and speak to us.

Over all with the money we paid it was a very good deal.

A small business center with a Wifi would have made it a perfect place.

I am surprised that anyone can write a bad review of the Riverside Guest House. My partner and I have stayed here three times, this year for three weeks. It is ideally situated at the north end of Baga beach away from the bustle. The balconies overlook the river and there is a quite secluded pool at the rear.

The food is excellent and the staff are very friendly and helpful, particularly Mr Desei, who gave us our early morning calls whenever we went away.

It is the perfect location from which to explore Goa. We stayed in a beach hut up at Mandrem, went to Hampi, and spent time down in Palolem. Each time it was wonderful to return to the relaxing atmosphere and good service of the Riverside Guest House.

We will certainly go again, soon!

Our group (9 persons) decided to book Hotel Riverside at Baga considering its proximity to Baga and upon recommendation from someone known.

We landed there at 1.00 clock with lots of expectation and hopes in our mind. We were asked to pay the entire the amount in advance along with charges for extra person in each room.

We paid the money and took the keys. The moment we entered the rooms, all our dreams where shattered as the room was in bad condition with lots of mosquitoes, lizard and other insect roaming around.

There was no TV, no telephone to contact and no room service available. We still agreed to stay as we were all boys and would spend more time on beaches rather than room. We were under the impression, that the extra mattress would be allotted to the third person since, we had paid the charge, but while enquiring during the night about the extra, we were asked to pay extra money for the same.

Since we all were tired we paid the amount and took the bed sheet. Next day when we went for the complimentary breakfast, we were told that only 2 breakfast (consisting for 2 slice of Toast bread with butter, jam and a cup of tea) per room. The charges for extra person was for room only and not include breakfast.

The staff was neither courteous nor polite with the customers. They didn’t even bothered to clean the room the next, neither did they provide any clean towel or soap.

They were interested to server the foreigners only and not Indian people.

The Manageress and staff were very welcoming, they helped us to our room which had a balcony over the river. The room was very clean and had a fan and air-conditioning. There is a nice area in the garden and also a terrace were you can eat under the moonlight and by candlelight.
The cuisine was delicious, quite an extensive menu, all cooked to order. I am hoping to return next year at the same time. Not that it really bothered whilst I was there, but I really enjoyed it there

We arrived at the Riverside Resort, on 17th February, after a very tiring journey. The Manageress and staff were very welcoming, they helped us to our room which had a balcony over the river. The room was very clean and had a fan and air-conditioning. There were some minor hiccups, but they the staff dealt with them very well. The bridge was being widened so there was quite a bit of noise during the day, but you couldn't really hear it by the pool. There is a nice area in the garden and by the pool to be waited on for food and drinks, and also a terrace were you can eat under the moonlight and by candlelight.
The cuisine was delicious, quite an extensive menu, all cooked to order. I am hoping to return next year at the same time and hopefully the bridge will be finished. Not that it really bothered whilst I was there, but I really enjoyed it there.

  • Liked — Friendly, comfortable, relaxing atmosphere.
  • Disliked — Beds could of been a little softer, but they were ok.

We stayed for 3 weeks in Feb and March 2007. This was our 4th visit and we will be back next year. The hotel is basic but it is classified as a guest house so that is to be expected. The bridge being demolished was a bit of a nusiance but the drilling has now finished, they were just clearing the rubble as we were leaving!!!!!!!

The staff were, as always, excellent. You couldn't ask for better service and the food was superb.

The bathrooms could do with upgrading but we have noticed improvements around the hotel this year and more are planned for next season.

For the cost of the holiday and the location the hotel is very good value for money.
