“Just OK”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 November 2013

We stayed here in the first week of November 2013 for 3 nights in the club room.

Room - The room was very small. The wardrobe didn't have doors. The rooms were poorly lit. There was no light in the area around the dressing mirror and the wardrobe. There were patches on the wall where paint had come down.

Service - In Room dining service was prompt. But for the complimentary drinking bottled water, they make you cry. Every day 1.5 liter is provided, but to get that they need to be reminded numerous time.

Food - The breakfast was the usual spread. Mix of Indian and English. The lunch and dinner menu is very short. Moreover the taste of the food is not good. Better avoid it. There are better restaurants nearby - notably Zeebop (by the side of this property) and Martins Corner (3-4 kms away)

The best part is the beach - Clean, unpolluted and having a gentle slope. The property is right on the beach.

Room Tip: Avoid Club Rooms.

We stayed at the Royal Orchid for 3 nights
Pros: Good location - right next to the Utorda beach, Rate was decent, Food is good, Resort is big and well maintained
Cons: Rooms are small, check-in and check-out are long, overall service needs to improve

Food options outside the resort is Zeebop by the sea which is worth a shot

Room Tip: Rooms on 1st floor are better lit

very good holiday spent, each penny worth it.. it has got an amazing location, beach proximity and the beach is a lovely one with less crowd in it. would recommend it. The food was really tasty and spa is a must try.

We reached on the Diwali day and were welcomed with a chilled lemonade,tasty it was.We went to our room 118.It was pretty cosy and comfortable.The toilet was clean but to my surprise the drainage was awful and the glass shower door was left on one of the two hinges.We complained but it was not taken care of.Otherwise the resort was good.Swimming pool was really TEMPTING.You could spend the whole day inside the pool.Dont forget your SUNSCREEN,though.The beach is just outside the backgate so you dont need to think twice before stepping out.Markets are far away with just two to three shops and a restaurant near the resort.
Room service is impressive.You can get anything from soaps to shampoos to diapers free of cost just with a call.The items kept in the mini bar in your room are heavily priced so avoid using them if posible.Breakfast is awesome LUXURIOUS is the word.The garden is beautiful with crotons and beautiful flowers.It also has a gym and a playroom with slides.Greenery is aplenty with cococonut trees all around.The dinner was good with musicians playing bollywood and goan songs.Spend at least 2 full days in the resort to enjoy every bit of it.Utorda beach is nice and peaceful with parasailing and water scooter towards evening when it gets a bit crowded.Dont miss the morning walk on the beach and sunset as well.The only shack present at the beach is neat and has good snacks.Do visit the beach and resort.Didnt go to the spa so cant comment on that.

Royal Orchid Goa is a decent hotel, but nothing fancy or exciting. The only excitement is it in on a clean and white beach which is not crowded.

The hotel is in a good location, but the maintenance is not great. Rooms are good, but could have been designed to look more spacious. Service is bad and food is really bad.

Pool is good and fun filled :)

I advice if you planning to go to this property never go for American Plan for food sucks.

Room Tip: Luxury Suite which is standard of Deluxe Room but with an extra TV is what I recommend....

The boat quay grill restaurant is great. Their other restaurant is below par. Below average. Property underwent a bit of renovation as i witnessed on this trip. Yet its no value for money. There are better options at this price point.
