The stay in Cidade De Goa was excelelnt. The people were warm and friendly. The rooms were almost on the beach - step out from the room and it was to the beach. Had good activities for the kids.
Only surprising matter - there was no free wi-fi. Hotels of this class should offer it for free!

Room Tip: Opt for sea-side

We had a very good trip made special by Cidade de Goa, it was a conference planned between 26th and 29th July and we were 30+ guests of this magnificent "Goa in a resort", well planned and excellent amenities to enjoy..

You all know that this hotel location is quite interesting as its right on the beach. but if you want to go around Goa, you will need to hire a bike or any other vehicle, as Panjim is about 7-8kms from here and Baga Calangute another 8-10kms. hence its best to choose your stay wisely depending on what purpose you have come for in Goa.

As we had a conference for 3 days we just loved this place as everyone adjusted quite well with the hotel had to offer us, excellent rooms / even better food (hats off to Chef Mrunal and Chef Binay Singh) they gave the perfect treat for all our lunch / snack and dinner with a personalized touch.

Thanks to Mr. Soma Bagli to organize everything quite well for us. and the other staff at the reception and conference hall did an excellent job to cater to all our needs.

Overall we had good fun and enjoyed every bit of it.. With a big hug to all you guys in Cidade from Torfenster Systems.

Great job and all the very best for your future plans.

Room Tip: sea facing is a good option, but if you want to send most of your time roaming outside, then all ren...

Had planned for an all inclusive four nights-five days family vacation to Goa through MakeMy Trip - was received on 27th July 2014 at the airport and driven to the hotel in luxury. Was surprised to find an extremely decent reception for the arriving guests of the hotel. The staff at the reception counter was extremely courteous and helpful and did most of the paper work themselves with rarely bothering us and seeing to the fact that we were made comfortable in the lounge and relaxed with the refreshing welcome drink.
We were assigned beach facing decent sized rooms which were conveniently located. Being an old resort it had the opportunity to be constructed right at the beach.
After resting for sometime we went for a swim in the pool - later had the dinner at Laranza - a lavish feast fit for a king - one can say so and each and every dish well prepared and extremely tasty - we were afraid that we should not get into "food coma" with our first meal.
Next day took an optional guided city tour 2 after lunch which was arranged by the transport office of the hotel and included a visit to the Dona Paula jetty. The third day we took the tour to Fort Aguada, Calanguta and Bagha beaches. Since we had visited during the monsoon time - and beaches were not that clean and we were saddened that we could not venture out into the rough sea.
The Taverna bar at the resort was our drinking hole during the happy hours
Had a visit to the in house casino "Goldfinger."
My wife had utilized the services of the spa in the resort.
During our whole stay and where-ever or whichever staff member we encountered - we were greeted by a smiling pleasant face and replied to all our queries extremely courteously despite the fact that during the entire time we had stayed at the property, it was more than 85% occupied!
On the final day 31st July 2014 when we left for the airport after our lunch at Laranza we realized that we were totally "pampered with the finest indulgences in life."

I stayed at cidade de goa for 3 nights with my family altogether 11 of us,had a wonderfull time the resort is great nice and clean the service too is very good,the rooms are bit too old but good.The food variety at Laranza is pretty good.
Only the Spa and the kids activity area need more friendly people towards kids rather than just showing the rule book of time for kids,the steam and sauna should be monitored with someones presence rather than just setting things on timmer.
Rest all a wonderfull resort property.

Room Tip: Sea facing room are good.

Had an good experience at this Hotel. So much to do just in the hotel. The 6th time i visited goa so didnt really want to explore, stayed mostly in hotel for 2 nights. Best part was the food.
Pool was very clean and not crowded. the private beach is like cherry on the cake. Enjoyed every bit of my stay. Though the rooms had little issues with lights going off on their own. Some renovation work going on, so noise coming in in afternoons. Staff should be more friendly. We asked for water in the midnight and they gave it in a used bottle. P.S. only 1 litre water is complimentary per day
