We stayed one week in RGBC after spending the previous week in Mumbai. Compared to the big city, Goa is Paradise. And the good people in the resort made us feel that we were in the right place.

We had come from Portugal and we were quite anxious to see wether or not the Portuguese had left good memories in Goa. Well, the memories are good indeed. Almost everybody in Goa bears a Portuguese family name and they bear it with pride. Our hosts in RGBC were no exception, from lovely Front Desk Mgr Ms Venicia D'souza to the always present, always caring, General Mgr Mr Savio Fernandes.

We were a party of 4 and were alotted apt 22 which is a 6-people duplex. We can only remark that the kitchenware was the bare minimum, strictly enough for 4 (we would ask for more kitchenware if we were 6, but we got along with it). Everything else was very good, considering that this is India, this is a beach resort and the building will be refurbished soon. The table and chairs outside are a pure bless, for relaxed evenings or late nights.

All that is referred by the other reviews is true and relevant, from the cleanliness of the spaces to the tidiness and kindness of all the staff (no exceptions), to the quality of the food and the feelgood of the theme dinners. Concerning this, one single remark: we always felt that the performing artists were too far from the tables, which failed to establish a good contact between performers and guests. We suggest that a diferent place may be alotted to the artists, maybe near the bar or somewhere in the surrounding green grass.

The nearby beach is also a must, 10-min easy walk, with plenty of beach shacks and a very relaxed atmosphere. Too many beach dogs, though.

Also worth mentioning is the fact that we were scheduling a very ambitious sightseeing program, covering 5 full days of the week. RGBC offers a catalog of nice tours, but we wanted more. And we were faced with problems raised by the tough Taxi Union, preventing us from contracting our previous Agency (which served us in Mumbai). In the end, Ms Venicia D'souza handled all the negociations and arranged for us a taxi driver that transported us all around, fulfilled all our program and sometimes more. All this with a price tag which was not excessive, considering the demands. Thanks to Ms Venicia D'souza and to the taxi driver Patrick Barreto for the good work. Next time you need a driver, ask for Patrick to Ms Venicia, you will not be disappointed.

Well, that's it. We may return to Goa, that's very likely. And while the north Goa is busier and livelier, the south is prettier and more relaxed, and this pleases us more.
If and when we return, RGBC and the driver Patrick will be our sure choices. Bless them.

Awesome experience

Rooms Space: *****

Facilities: ****
Location : ***

Nice place for Relaxation.
2 mins in bike from Resort to Benelium Beach where you find limited water sports.
All groceries and toiletries are available in the stores inside the resort for limited cooking.
Crew is very kind and helpful. esp. Salvo, Manager, and Events coordinator.
Gym, Bar, Restaurant are excellent. Pool and Sports room are good. Spa is little on expensive side.
Location is far from Happening places like Baga, Anjuna Beaches & Markets. Nearest place for finding restaurant is Madgao city around 15 mins journey.

If all you are expecting is Relaxation and spending time with your family or friends - This is best suited. As it is far from disturbance and very quiet.

We have just spent a month at the Royal Goan Beach Club and had a fanastic stay. We can only say thank you so much to the manger Savio and his wonderful staff, from reception to pool and maids they were fabulous, nothing was to much trouble. The units were very clean and tidy, maybe a little updating is needed, which we were informed by the manager was work in progress. The gardens and pool are well looked after. It was a lovely place to relax and chillout. There is some wonderful restaurants within easy reach of walking, even the hotels restaurant is good and reasonably priced. One restaurant that we wouldnt recommend is Joecons, we ate there twice and both times the service was bad, but the food was worse. We hired motorbike and had an amazing time !!!, there is lots to see and do.Plenty of wonderful beaches and the beach shacks do amazing food.

Room Tip: we had room 9 that was at the back of the resort so you had no noise from the road.

We spent a week at RGBC Benaulim from 15 Feb 14 to 22 Feb 14. We opted for a one bedroom unit (T1 in RGBC parlance). The moment we were shown the room, there was a smile on our faces. It was not opulent yet clean, comfortable, practical and equipped with all basic necessities. Whoever planned the inventory has done a great job. It is not your typical hotel room with cramped interiors; rather it is very roomy and more than adequate for a family of four. These rooms are well maintained and during the week there was not a single occasion when we had to complain of anything that was not working.
What makes this Resort special is the warmth of the staff. Smiling faces greet you everywhere and they are ever willing to help you. An airport pick-up was arranged even before I could call and request for one. Being a small resort, the attention afforded by the staff becomes even more personalised. At times when we returned from the beach, we even found used dishes to be cleaned and stacked. Another thing I noticed is that the staff is always turned out immaculately in their blue tunics and white trousers, which only goes to show the pride they have in themselves.
The China Beach restaurant serves delicious food. Some may find the wait for the order to arrive a bit long but then every thing is prepared fresh. It is best to give them an hour's notice and you will not be disappointed with their service. The fare they serve for dinner on the theme nights (three times a week) is really delicious and priced very reasonably. The entertainment on these theme nights consists mostly of solo performers. We specially liked Mercy on the saxophone.
The pool is nice and clean with a separate enclosure for children. The poolside bar serves some great cocktails and mocktails.
Bruno, the restaurant manager and Mr Savio Fernandes, the General Manager are to be seen everywhere and mingle with the guests. Our compliments to them for running a very efficient outfit. Mr Savio even spoke to Haathi Mahal, where we spent the subsequent week, and got us a room of our choice.
Our twin four year old sons, for whom we had planned this vacation, had a whale of a time and I would return to RGBC Benaulim gladly in the future.
Tip for the beach which is a short ten minute walk from the resort - try the shacks on the Southern end of Taj Exotica. We found Seagull Shack to be really nice.

Room Tip: All rooms are pool facing. The T1 rooms are on the ground floor.

Just spent 2 fantastic weeks at this lovely hotel and from the moment we were made so welcome at the reception until we reluctantly had to leave I can only say we enjoyed every day .Savio and all the staff were really friendly and helpful and made sure everything was to the guests satisfaction. The rooms are really spacious and cleaned daily by the efficient housekeeping staff and all rooms face the lovely swimming pool and lawned area with relaxing sun beds and pool bar.There is a welcome meeting every Sunday for new arrivals which is very informative about the hotel facilities and surrounding area.The general ambience of this hotel is very peaceful and friendly and many guests return year after year. Benaulim has a lovely beach and the Royal Goan beach club is the ideal place to stay and enjoy the area.We are already looking forward to our next visit.

We stayed at Royal Goan Beach Club for 7 days and had a great time there. The suite rooms were quite big and easily 4 people can stay there. There's a living room with sofa cum bed. In the living room there's a small dining table and TV and an open kitchen. The bedroom is separate and quite big. A small shop is inside the club where all food and grocery items are available, where we can buy stuff and prepare at the kitchen in room. The gym is good with all the major equipments. The swimming pool is great and is cleaned very frequently. Indoor games are also available like table tennis, carrom, chess, etc. The location of the resort in also great as it is in the middle of Goa so people who would like to travel to north and south goa then it is quite easy but with hired vehicle only.
In all the stay was very good and would definitely recommend the same.
