NV Beach Resort
Ranked #82 of 124 Hotels in Calangute
Reviewed 17 February 2013

location is close to beach but a very unorganized resort. owner mr periera manages and does not pick calls or respond to emails. the ground floor rooms are very shabby, tv does not work,stinky. dont go by pictures on website or tripadvisor. reality is different. better and clean hotel options available at same rates in vicinity- 100/200meters

Room Tip: dont choose any rooms. pictures in tripadvisor and hotel website are deceptive

NV Beach Resort is perfect for people travelling on a budget. The location of this family run resort is unbelievable. Walk about 100 mts and you see the very inviting Arabian Sea. I stayed in the Non - AC room which was average. But for 1200 a night in Dec, I'm not complaining. I think I got a sweet deal for peak season.However, the bed and bath linen could have been of better quality.

Francis, the owner, is very friendly and helpful. He stays on the property with his family and is available whenever needed. He also has bikes that you could hire during your stay at extra cost. They have their own shack attached to the resort. But i recommend trying one of the many 100s around as they're closer to the water. Personal favourite is Friend's Corner run by John. Loved the eggs and mac n cheese.

NV beach resort is highly recommended for a budget holiday especially for students who aren't looking for anything fancy but just need a place to crash after a long day in Goa.

Room Tip: The AC Deluxe Rooms have a better view since they're on the 1st floor and face the water.

I have been visiting this place since 7 yrs...everytime in goa ...i stay here. Its close to the beach, restaurants and shopping.
The owner is really friendly and very helpful.They have a/c and non ac rooms.In winter non A/c is fine. Its just 100m from the beach. They own a shack too which is up during season.

Room Tip: take the rooms on the first floor

I have read some of the reviews.
1. I spoke to Francis about three months before the trip and sent him the 50 percent downpayment for the rooms booked.I called the next day asking for some sort of confirmation. It took a week,and many phone calls before I was able to get an email confirmation.
2 There is no front desk. When you arrive you wouldn't know if you are entering through the back entrance or the front.It requires that you go searching along the corridors for a living soul and then find your way.
3.The water in the bathrooms stops all of a sudden and you have to go searching for the same soul ( Govi or Gopi is his name) and ask him to turn on the motor to fill the tanks.
4. I stayed there for three nights and not once did they change the towels or the bed sheets. When asked, Govi says that the laundry hadn't arrived.
5. The bathroom is crummy and not actually clean.
6. The window didn't have a latch, and so could be opened from both the inside and the outside with equal ease, leaving us feeling vulnerable.
Now for the plus points.
1 It is cheap. Far cheaper than most but not all beachside places. There are better deals in Calangute.
2. It is very close to the beach.
As an aside, I have travelled the world with my family and have used tripadvisor for most decisions.I did use Tripadvisor for this holiday too. I am not a cribber or a grumbler but the reviews of this hotel on tripadvisor are rather misleading. There is a particular review , that says that the swimming pool is nice. The place simply doesnt have a pool of anykind whatsoever.It is possible that they are having teething problems.But the truth ought to reflected in the reviews.

Stayed here years ago both in session (December) and out of session (June) and i am reading it is the same now as it was then. Brilliant
The family are the best and they will go out of there way to help you day and night. For a quite spot head for the roof and it a nice place to watch the sunset.
Local taxi man Angelo is top that if he is still there.
Been to Goa 8 or more times but not been for 8 years, now looking at going December or January.

And i will be calling in NV's even if its just for a fish curry.
