“Saw dolphins from our room!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 January 2013

This resort is very quiet, with cottages spread across a large area. We had a sea facing cottage and enjoyed the sunrise each morning. On Jan 3rd when we were preparing to check out, we saw a large pod of about 50 to 60 dolphins from our room. We rushed to the beach and watched them for about 20 minutes as they moved South. They were only about 100 meters from the beach! We were told by the staff at the resort that this happens once in about 3 months and we were very lucky!

The resort is very spacious with large open areas and direct access to the beach. There are a number of mature trees, a kid size swimming pool (which they try to clean every day) and a large parking lot. The security is also very good especially at night. We were told that the rooms were renovated recently and we found them to be very clean and spacious. The restaurant has also improved a lot since we last visited a few years ago. We had many meals there and the cooks were able to prepare the items to our taste. The price is also reasonable. The dining area is very spacious.

The service is a bit laid back, but the people are genuinely nice and courteous. They do their best to be helpful.

Room Tip: If you prefer sea facing room, ask for it specifically.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for visiting our resort and writing in about your pleasant stay. We are thrilled that you had an amazing experience during your stay with us in the sea facing cottage. It seems that the dolphins made the perfect entry for you to catch a glimpse of them before your departure and we are glad for that cherry on top of the cake. We understand that you noticed the improvements from your previous visit and take that as a valuable compliment. Thank you for appreciating our staff and their service. We would be delighted to welcome you again for another excellent holiday. Wish you an amazing day ahead.

Best Wishes

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 December 2012

To be true, ROOMS were big and clean,if you want to just stay inside the room its good, but couldnt have a resort feel or ambience,
we took a sea view room, and sea is so long that we couldnt see ,we paid 6000 and it was not worth for the money,
swimming pool worst ever, its was very small and dirty
NO TV service too it was horrible that they say no cable ,you can use DVDS but they donot provide DVDS
Buffet was good and only breakfast was provided,

Room Tip: 112 is a good one

we have visited VGP golden beach resort for our first wedding anniversary celebrations.. let me give u unbiased first hand information regarding this resort.

ROOM quality was excellent but coming AC it was not functioning properly. apart from sea view resort view really stinks and most important is resort is under renovation and this point will not be revealed by staff until u take the room and restaurant is not available. food quality is normal. on the whole if u really want to enjoy only within room then this resort will do but if u are expecting perfect resort ambiance its a dream.

overall rating: poor:

We had a short visit to this Resort. Took the cottage rooms . The place needs to improve on maintenance grounds, but still the location is amazing.
The moment we raised the curtains we had a splendid view of the beach and it was enough to relax and soothe our nerves.
The place has movie shootings happening every now and then.
We went to the lounge on the beach side. Every thing was gr8 about it.
Had a nice short stay

Room Tip: Beachside is gr8

We stayed at VGP golden beach resort because of the brand the VGP group once had. We were running on tight budget this time and this resort was among the economical ones on the ECR road. We booked a sea facing AC deluxe cottage. We found the reception and entrance quite good. But once you go inside, the resort looks like ruins. Utter lack of maintenance is a simple description that we can give for the same.

Everything is under repair, the room quality is bad, the geysers don't work, the AC does not work properly, and the beds/mattresses are old. To add to the woes, the room service and house keeping is hopeless. Every order takes a minimum of an hour and they expect to be tipped for every visit made to the room.

The only saving grace was that the beach is nearby and is relatively clean as compared to the beaches in other parts of the city. We found that 1-2 guys in the Jungle Park restaurant were quite helpful unlike the room service guys.
