we stayed at the godwin from 26th jan- 9th feb, we found it to be a lovely hotel in very central location. couldnt fault the room, very comfortable. the breakfast was good, buffet style and a chef on hand making eggs. we didnt have lunch or dinner there as we ate out every night, the pool area was tidy, clean and quiet. had a couple of beers at the bar before going out at night which was very pleasant, found the staff to be nice and polite. overall a great time in goa and a fab stay at the godwin.

This hotel is close to most of key Goa activities. The restaurant is excellent. The complimentary buffet breakfast was something to look forward to. The room was well appointed and extra clean. The hotel had good parking for our driver. The reception staff was kind and helpful.

Good decent property with helpful staff and nicely done rooms. Its near to the Bagha beach that was one of the reasons my travel agent recommended it , no problem with that. The real problem with this hotel start is the size ; its way to small to accommodate the amount of people that it books.
The restraunt cannot hold more than 15 people yet there were atleast 30 people waiting for the breakfast for 2 days I was there. Though the staff tries to help you as much as they can still the place is not designed to hold that many people. One of the days we were shifted to the basement room which was more like a party hall for out Breakfast. Not a very nice feeling.

Also the rooms are noisy , the enitre duration of my stay you could hear people walking in the corridor children playing doors being open an shut.

Not a pleasant experience.

Also the front desk was unresponsive when the cab which was suppose to pick me up from the airport did not turn up.

This is the second time I have stayed at Godwins and I am half in love with the place and half driven nuts by the madness that prevails! Okay good stuff first 1. Rooms are extremely comfortable. 2. Most of the staff are very willing/polite and keen to help 3. The pool is amongst the best in Candolim and is never crowded (in fact it is virtually empty 90% of the time) 4. The gardens are beautiful. Now the crazy stuff ... 1. The menu is bizarre my friend ordered 'fish and chips' (dodgy tummy so no spices for a day or two) and was served 'fish and crisps' - when queried it was explained if she wanted French fries then she should have ordered correctly! Breakfast is served in the basement - a space with no windows or atmosphere with a menu that includes 1 inch cut up bits of stale pastry - considering there is a rather lovely restaurant upstairs where breakfast was previously served I do not understand the move and no one is prepared to explain. The delightful pool is perhaps partially empty because of the more recent rules - no drinks by the pool and no food at all - I did query this and was told that guests might throw crockery or glasses in the pool so must be deterred by new rules. Added to previous rules it is now painted up that no one with skin disorders may enter! A bit off putting just thinking about it. There is a bar but I can reliably inform you that one order of a 'long island iced tea' meant 5 separate trips from assorted waiting staff. On my floor the young man responsible for cleaning the rooms does not like his job - I have seen him twice in 5 days and my pet Yorkshire Terrier could do a better job - he has now taken to using a dirty mop so today the room is not only only halfway clean but it smells revolting- I cannot bring myself to report him because he might get sacked and have people relying on his wages! I know I should but this is the effect the Godwin has on me. My balcony only has one chair (it is a double room) and we had to beg for another chair which was provided very reluctantly. (Perhaps they thought we would throw it in the pool?) etc etc ... Okay having moaned and whined why would I stay here again? Because the place is generally really good natured and really funny and the beds are so comfortable - and I am sure that Basil Fawlty is hiding just around the corner!

This place is a 5 star lodge and half star hotel. We had 3 rooms in this lodge the rooms were fine however the only good part of this lodge were the rooms. If u dont give any training to your staff they r bound to be a bunch of monkeys running around without direction.
Service was rank bad. Hotel is apparently facing a shortage of Glasses and Cutlery. If you order 5 glasses u will get only 2. Food comes to the room waiter forgets to bring cutlery.
After 2 am no one will pick up the phone neither will d receptionist or the emergency number..
I called the Housekeeping to tell them that a bottle had broken @ 8 pm however that bottle was only cleaned the next day when the room was cleaned not only tht the housekeeping Lady who sits on 2nd floor is the least courteous ...Shes Rude, arrogant, untrained. the only work she does the entire day is to sit in that 4x4 room. Since no one was ready to clean the broken bottle i decided to tell her tht a glass of hotel was broken.. within 2 min she was @ our room door with a bill of broken glass...hahahaha isnt this crazy which hotel presents u with a bill for a broken glass..
if u plan to put an extra bed this hotel is a rip off .. they charged us 6000 for extra bed..
This Hotel needs a complete overhaul of Staff including management the only people who were good to the guests were the waiters.
How is this hotel or lodge given any stars?? its probably due to bribing of officials this hotel is not worth spending a penny.
Everyone in the Hotel Has one answer.. That is >> NOOO
24hr room service menu card is a joke u have to c it to believe it.. This Lodge follows the Rules whats in the book , vl follow that. I asked the chef @ 11 am i want a Caesar Salad and the answer I got was No .. since its 11 am its lunch time u cant get it after 3pm only...hahaha. they dnt serve u anything wich includes cold drinks and all coz the bar is locked.. they dnt care bt their guests.
Seriously Folks bunch of Mokeys Running this place..

Property is average. What is worse are the policies and attitude of the staff and management who are extremely inflexible and not customer friendly. The lifts don't work and the pool is dirty. In summary not worth the price at all
