Candolim for us, don't mind a night out in Calangute but wouldn't want to stay there, basically Candolim is one long strip, never had any problems walking from A to B so to speak and if you don't want to walk there are plenty of taxis and tuk tuk's.

Candolim has a lot and I mean a lot of really good restaurants and bar's, the beach is good especially since the boat has finally gone. Where abouts in Candolim are you thinking of staying, we prefer the top side near to the football ground but we have also stayed nearer the Sinquerim end which is quieter, it all depends what you are wanting at the end of the day.

Candolim is the purpose built tourist area, it was only a tiny village twenty years ago, so everthing is there for the tourist, Calangute is a working town as well as been a tourist area, Baga is virtually the tourist over spill from Calangute and has slowly developed as a tourist area over the last thirty years

Candolim or Baga are both pleasantly lively places for first timers that want good restaurants and shacks in strolling distant of their accommodation

Calangute covers a big area and parts of it a great as well

I would vote for Calangute as it has a much more Indian feel , Candolim is more purpose built and a little bland in comparison although it offers lots of great restaurants.
