Varca Palms Beach Resort
Ranked #9 of 10 Hotels in Varca
Reviewed 7 November 2013

The key attraction and probably the only key reason for anybody to stay at varca palms is its location - right on the beach. You feel like having a private beach for the resort. The view from the beach side bar is too good and the beach is away from the water sports spot on the varca and hence provides good privacy. The food is very bad and we ate almost every day outside the resort. Rooms are ok, the best ones are the pool side rooms. Another negative is the access to main road is more than 3 Kim's and a private vehicle is a must. Overall good experience for a short stay.

Room Tip: Pool side rooms are the best.

Had a fantastic weekend package stay at the Varca Palms resort Fatrade. We were in all 5 couples and kids. Most reasonable rates we ever had. On arrival we were given upgrade to the villas with no additional charges!! Nice cosy villas ,well spread out gardens and excellent swimming pool. Spent a lot of time swimming and playing water polo.
Lots of facilities the most we ever had so far ,like lawn tennis,cricket,badminton,table tennis etc. We went all out and had a great time trying out everything and worked out enormous appetites in the process!! It was really hectic but fun. Food was good,only thing more of vegetarian,not that I mind but the others though a few more non vegetarian dishes might have helped. Service was excellent everyone was very helpful and cooperative.
In all an amazing experience . Edgar Menezes, Margao,Goa.

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...
