“Stayed there in 2001 & 2002”
Reviewed 23 November 2013

Don't know if still relevant today, but back in 2001-2002, the place was fabulous, nice comfort, excellent service, and great pool. I stayed first time in 2001 with my company (large group), then again as a honeymoon trip in 2002. We especially enjoyed having a kitchen, being strict vegetarians.

Room Tip: If you are two families, look for rooms that communicate.

Happened to stay at the Beach Club in Goa. Its a medium size property as compared to other resorts, however due to its size there is a lot of privacy available in the common areas like the pool.
Huge rooms and a great staff. The GM is a very helpful person. This resort also has a grocery store and each room has a fully equipped kitchen.

The only redeeming features of this Resort were - its proximity to one of the loveliest Goan Beaches , and its spartan but very freindly and cooperative staff , which was always eager to take care of your needs n comfort to their best ability.
Rest it was a sordid appointment. On its own this resort may b measured as 6 , on a scale of 0-10 , if u r very generous but if you compare this to a Club Mahindra Resort , it can no way notch up more than 4. ( We are a club mahindra member )
The Reort was recommended to us by an RCI staffer claiming it to be best RCI resort in GOA. Never expected RCI to take members for a ride with false propaganda.
As almost all Club resorts , this resort also was woefully understaffed. At one point pool bartender was doublingup as room service guy. The 2 bedroom unit , which we had booked, was very spacious with all good kitchen facilities but nothing more. The resort provides Tea /Coffee maker but provide tea/coffee /sugar sachets only on day of arrival. Least realisisng that even sub standardhotels in all major cities also replenish these everyday without guest asking for the same. Same was the case with Toileteries. TOwels were also replaced alternate days. Also, there is only 1 bathroom between 2 bedrooms on 1st floor whichwas a major inconviencne , particularly when u are travelling as a family withelders/parents and grown up children. Bathroom flooring is very poor and not anti skid tiles.Housekeeping / Maintenance was also poor. Infact one day we had to call up the housekeeping and request them to remove previousnight's plates.
Restaurant is ok but probably as in all places in GOA serves very limited veg. food. Bar was also not well stocked with some of the premium normal brands also not being available such as VAT 69 & Passport.
Also , the resort does not provide shuttle service to the Beach which is a good 20 minutes walk. And u need it on your return once u have spent few hours in the sea enjoying it.
One thing going for the resort is the tranquility which surrounds the resort.U can almost soak your self in the quiet peaceful atmosphere.

Room Tip: not much choice there. all most all rooms face the pool.

Dear Sir,
Greetings from Royal Goan Beach Club. Thanks for highlighting on our hospitality. Regarding our service shortcomings, I wish you had brought to my notice at least once during your stay. I met you frequently almost every day and asked regarding your stay and you always said it was going fine. I even mentioned to you that if you need anything please let me know but you always said everything was fine.Coming to Tea coffee sachets we do provide extra on request, even towels we are flexible, though we have a certain concept.
However I would also like to bring to your notice that certain external factors are beyond our scope to manage with, like the taxi and shuttle services which we are not allowed to operate as per the local administration guidelines. It’s a privilege given to the local community and they are the only ones allowed to so. Not even people from other villages. The only transport which we are allowed to function is a coach service to the airport only on Saturdays.
Thanks once again for staying with us and assuring you of a pleasant stay with better facilities the next time you visit us.
With best regards.

We had been here in 2006, and decided to come back in Oct 2013 for the fond memories we have of this place and the terrific beach nearby.

The resort is nicely located, about 5-7 minutes walk away from the beach. There are restaurants nearby: One right opposite the resort (Gigi's) and one a minute's walk (Joecon's). There are taxis available right outside the resort, and though they have fixed prices, I did like the courteous service they were giving. There is a store inside the resort and they charge a fair price for snacks and food items. They also carry shampoo, toothpaste etc at a great price: with the result that one can relax in the resort or on the beach without venturing out too much if one wanted to to for supplies. With our two small children, this really was good.

The unit we stayed in was a 2 Bedroom unit on the second floor. They are large, have a good living area and a kitchen on the lower storey and 2 bedrooms on the upper storey. Nicely furnished with one bathroom on the lower and one on the upper storey. The furnishings were nice, but the TV could really be a but more modern. They had cable TV and phone on the lower storey.

The one bedroom units were on the lobby level. I remember that they were a bit less bright than the 2 BR units on the top storey: but I tell you that will not stop us from coming back if next time we got a one BR. Why? The location is great, the beach is terrific and the staff at the resort are great.

Mr. Savio Fernandes, the manager is very helpful and interacts with guests to help with any issues they may have. We found this pro-active style to be very handy for guests. The other staff like the cleaners and bartenders were very good too. Thank you Clifford for the music CD and the super service at the restaurant and in-room. Thanks Xavier for the excellent service. Oh and BTW, the price at the restaurant will not burn a hole in your pocket. Their get together dinner (paid) was very nice and a good value for money. And they had these themed nights at the restaurant which was also a blast.

The wifi was a bit sketchy for a couple of days, but then Mr. Fernandes had the technician over and all was well with it.

The suggestion I can give for the resort is for a thorough renovation of the grounds and the pool. The pool was great, but it does need a renovation. Ditto for the kitchen, the airconditioners and the grounds. The towels could do with a changI was told by Mr. Fernandes, that a renovation is due soon: that was good news.

Will we be back at this resort? Absolutely!

Room Tip: Unit 3 was a 2BR and probably the best in the house. Unit 2 and 4 are good too.

Myself and Yvonne had a great time at the GBC despite the fact we were there at the end of the monsoon season and still had a lot of rain ,but inbetween the showers it was glorious.
The staff at the club are the most friendly and helpful group of people one could only wish to have ,I can not praise them enough. We arrived early in the morning very tired from Seoul SK via Mumbai and were dreading the usual long wait before being allocated a room , but to our suprise everything was already orginised and we just signed in and were led straught to the room .The inclub resturaunt is very good with a good selection of Indian/Goan/Western and Chinese dishes and of course the staff were very good and helpful in explaining any of our queries on the food . I also must mention the Spa and its staff ,we booked a seven season course which was marvelous and so relaxing and again the staff great.
The only down point is that the GBC really needs an upgrade ,at the moment some of the apartments are getting a facelift ,but the exterior of the complex needs repainting ,the childrens area needs some new equipment (the snakes and ladders board is past it's best) and then there is the pool which is the focal point of the club ,this requires to be re-tiled as a lot of tiles are broken and have rough edges which could cause injury ,the pool bar also requires upgraded.
All in all a great place to holiday.

Dear Sir/Madam,

Greetings from Royal Goan Beach Club at Benaulim !!!

It is indeed my pleasure and privilege as the General Manager of the Royal Goan Beach Club , to thank you personally , for choosing us as your home away from home on your vacation and we are glad to know that you have enjoyed our service and hospitality, as much as we enjoyed serving you.


Thank you very much for your kind words and I am pleased to note that our services measured up to your satisfaction. Your feedback is indeed a source of encouragement to all of us as this reiterates our belief in the fact that our efforts in delighting our esteemed guests will always be recognized and appreciated.
Coming to refurbishment very soon we are going for a major one. In the month of August due to monsoons it becomes difficult to maintain the property. The giant size snake and ladder is painted fully and looks great. After the monsoons we have repainted the entire property and it looks great too. The next time you visit our property you will find it completely different.
Thanking you once again and looking forward to seeing you soon, back here again in the near future.


With best regards

I have been to GOA 16 times tried RGBC Hathimahal, Club Mahindra, Royal Palms and so on but best one is RGBC Benaulim which i have visited almost more than 10 Times and to my surprise its Improving Day by Day.

The Resort is very close to Benaulim Beach and is one of excellent resort is South Goa.

The Resort has differet types of Rooms Studio, 1 Bed Room but my Personal favourite ones are 2 Bed Room Appt which is on first floor and all Villas are Swimming pool facing. The villa is fully furnished even with good size kicthen with best aminities.

The best part of the resort is it never let you feel bore. There are Mutiple activity held by Resort to keep you entertained for whole week, just to name few : TT Competition, POT and Glass painting classes loved by Kids and Ladies, MOCKTAIL making competition, Cooking class, HOUSIE and Best I LUV is BEER Drinking Competition.

The Resort also has well maintained Restaurent. The F&B manager BRUNO is very good host and excellent dancer which you can see during RAFI night or DJ night held with luvly BUFFET in late evening.

And the Real GEM of Resort Mr. SAVIO (GM) makes sure you get excellent Hospitality and is persoanlly invloved in making guest comfortable, which he really doesnt has to do as his Team is real strong and Enthusiastic, but its his curtosy and his personal nature which takes his out of his GM designation and keeps him mingelled with guest.

I shall continue to be patrion to RGBC benaulium. I strongly recommend to Try it.

Room Tip: If you can get 1st Floor 2 Bed Rooms Villas prefer it. But all rooms are good.
