“Perfect for the price paid”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2014

Midrange hotel. Clean, homely stay, friendly staff
, has a nice closeby uncrowded and clean beach. From this beach you can see dolphins if you stroll by at early morning. Pool is neat and clean. Dining options better at nearby restaurants. You get all for the price you pay.

We visited Santa Rita in 2nd week of June .

Hotel room are very clean, and nicely decorated. Location of the Hotel is fantastic and it is in heart of the Candolim. Staff are very nice and ready to serve you their best.

But choice are limited in breakfast and repeating items daily with one or two changes.

From back entrance of the hotel , you can reach to Beach within few minutes walk.

Due to Off season Bar is closed and Swimming Pool also not up to the mark.

Over all stay was satisfactory . Recommendation for Family stay.

One suggestion: reception situated in the end of the hotel. Guest have to reach a long way to register . It should be in front of the hotel to feel welcomed

Room Tip: I 3 and I 4 in Coimba Villa

Like the title says I think that this is way better than is to be expected when comparing with a number of other hotels in the area of a similar rating.
Check-in always very friendly even if the night porter has just been woken up, which has got to be an acheivement. Try that in a hotel in Spain at 3 in the morning....

Worth the extra to get the superior room for sure, the beds are comfortable and have really thick mattresses, nice and spacious and have a small "kitchenette" with a fridge, kettle and sink - great for early morning cups of tea on the balcony watching the world wake up.

Love the wet-room type of bathroom facilities, just right for India - you don't need to buy extra toilet paper as in some properties (often the rolls are the size of a postage stamp) but you may prefer to indulge in some really soft stuff as lets face it you could be using a lot!

Is that just me i wonder??

Staff are absolutely adorable, always ready with a smile, nothing is too much trouble, in fact will go out of their way to do almost anything for you no matter that it's not on the list (again - Spanish hotels take note - this treatment does not cost money most of the time)

I love the food, although we take All Inclusive, we still eat out quite a lot, but love knowing that every night there will be something really well made and presented if we change our mind - including a few nights a week some really special gala nights - freshly made tandoori kebabs (meat, fish or veg), freshly made breads most night to order as well as some fairly well known European dishes if that's what takes your fancy ( it doesn't take mine, so i can't comment on the quality - however most guests when we have been there seem to be happy with them)

Back to breakfast now though - the most important meal of the day they say, well i don't normally do much in the form of brekkie, but how can i not here?? As a committed curry-a-holic i love the breakfasts here - waking up and wondering what south-indian delights are going to be on offer this morning - will it be sambhar and idli, will there be masala dhosa, will they put out the coconut chutney...every day starts off great.
On top of that there are always fresh eggs to order (try the masala ommelette if you want a kick to your eggs), sausages or bacon and beans, the usual, plus plenty of toast, jam butter - the usual including tea, juice etc. the staff will even make you a fresh brew of masala chai without even a little bit of fuss.

The hotel is laid out as series of portuguese style villas overhung by tropical plants and trees and really well kept at all times, the pool is clean and the whole complex is very relaxed, perfect for chilling out whatever sort of a holiday you want to do.

Although located at the bottom end of Candolim, so almost as far away from the bustle of the centre and of Calangute or Baga as you can get, it's so cheap and easy to get around using the local taxis, or hiring a scooter (you'll pay about £3.50 a day locally) that I think the peace and quiet in the property easily make up for the added distance travelled around.

It's also only a few minutes walk from the beach, and that really is a good way to get up and down the resort whilst burning off some of the calories taken in both in food and beer.

Will definitely be back again soon, can't wait!

Room Tip: superior all the way

Aldeia Santa Rita is a nice resort with spacious apartments, a pool, restaurant and lawns.. the hotel clean and works best on your pocket. They offer you a welcome drink as soon as you enter which elevates the experience, The staff is cooperative and offers solutions like bike and car rent for travel in Goa.

The breakfast was a small spread but nice . The hotel should work on facilities like Geyser and Ac which dont work in most rooms properly.

Room Tip: dont go deep inside.. rooms towards the outside are beter

Its location is prime. one side leads to the beach and the other to the main road. The main road connects, candolim, calangute and baga beach.

The swimming pool is a good excuse to laze around in the premise along with the beautifully done up villas that can keep you encaptivated for a few days.
