“Next to the beach with good food & activities”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 October 2013

Garden villas face the swimming pool and is just 2 mins walk from the beach. The resort is clean and service is good. Had an issue with the air conditioner initially, but was fixed. Food spread at the resort is good. You have an option for veg and non-veg pricing. Veg is cheaper, do ask for it if you are a vegetarian.

If you have kids then its a good place to be. They have lot of place to play around, we played cricket, shuttle badminton etc... Kids enjoyed the pool a lot. The pool is well maintained and clean. Sightseeing is expensive if you hire a cab from the resort. If you have your own vehicle then no worries.

The staff was very helpful and they also helped us chalk out the best routes to cover places. Surely want to visit again.

We recently planned a monsoon holiday in Goa with family. We were not keen on Goa sightseeing and hence location did not matter as long as it was a beach resort. And Varca Palms served to be a very good option. It was low season, little crowd so the beach was all for us. We loved the place, the villas and the gardens and the greenery. Food was on the expensive side but good, the breakfast spread was awesome.

On the flip side - the service was a bit below expectation & there are no indoor games to talk about. But certainly a place worth trying.

Overall loved the holiday!!

We were allotted villas and the first impression was a bit off a let down, the main door required a coat of paint, once inside the rooms were nice but in dire need of maintenance, the fan regulator came in my hand, paint stains on all the furniture, teh room over all was great, the service staff were excellent and handled all situations with a smile, overall it was a great stay, I guess probably because of the heavy monsoons the wear and tear of the property could be the reason.

If you thought Goa was only for the beaches,booze and parties,check it out in the rains.And for that purpose,this resort is just perfect.I also researched a lot before our monsoon trip to Goa,and was rather apprehensive about staying at this hotel since it is so far from town and poorly connected.But if one wants to stay put and just enjoy getting soaked,nothing could be better.

The resort is right on the beach,with a long stretch of private beach with clean firm white sand,and though swimming in the sea is not a good idea in the rainy season,walking along the seashore is a beautiful experience in itself;there are interesting formations in the sand made by small rivers that flow into the sea,and lovely seashells to collect!

We had booked a standard room but got upgraded to poolside villa because of the off season.The staff are courteous and helpful-minor problems with the rooms-water,flush,A/C,TV,etc. were sorted out quickly.Room service is fair.But guests are encouraged to visit the beachside restaurant-the menu is wide with a good choice of drinks;the dishes are well-cooked and substantial in quantity.The dogs,cats,etc.may be annoying but given the lack of tourists in the monsoon,the animal life was most welcome!

Beach walks,village walks,swimming pool,spa and small shopping gallery(which also stocks swimsuits,shorts,T-shirts for emergency purchase)are enough to keep one busy.A children's park would be a good idea too-swings,slides,etc.And better connectivity-bus,auto,etc. at regular intervals-would be great.Cabs are on the pricier side,and hiring a two-wheeler or bicycle is not feasible.

Would definitely want to go back-to enjoy the summer,and again to enjoy Christmas,but it gets crowded during peak season,and first impressions are always the best,so who knows?

Room Tip: The poolside villas offer great views of the gardens and beachside,and it's nice to just hop acr...

Stayed two nights in the cottage here. Clean rooms and toilets.Prompt service. Beautiful gentle beech. Very quiet. It started raining while we were in the restaurant. Umbrellas were immediately sent there so that we could get back to the cottage after dinner. Food too is fine except for the dogs that are at the entrance of the dining space.

Room Tip: The cottages near the pool are the best.

Stayed there over New Years. Restful, food was fine and the beach location among the trees was just beautiful. Hotel staff service was mixed but couldn't let that impact the overall wonderful experience. Did need some help with room issues - finally worked out. It IS a long trip in a taxi but if you want clean beach access within a two minute walk, this is it. Would NOT recommend the parasailing - no dock and had to have a crew member up there with you.. Also, dolphin watching trip was ok except for getting in and out of boat and over first three waves. Make sure your camera is waterproof. Would go back if ever got chance. Stayed in main building - not sure how it compares with the small self-contained rooms around the pool. It was all so pretty and colorful as well..
