Sandy's Service Apartment
Reviewed 19 April 2014

Sorry for this late review.
Sandy's service apartment is a clean and great place to stay with family. Few photos, as published by the owner and found to be true can be accessed thru the below links.

Their email id is sandys.service@gmail.com for any query. I had hard time to fetch out the contact details.

The house keeping is limited to a lady coming to your room in the morning and cleaning your room and doing your bed. Please do not expect a hotel treatment but for the money you pay and for the facilities you get, you shouldn't be complaining.
Calangute beach is 10-15 minutes walk depending on your speed and for Baga, we used a bike.

The owner Sanford was quite humble and helpful over the phone and did his best to make our stay comfortable.

Room Tip: I stayed in the ground floor and found this good. But check your options.

One of the best budgeted stays in goa near calangute beach.
At this price the room was way above our expectations and we had everything in our room average clean kitchen and good rooms.
The caretaker, Sameer was friendly and had got his number from Sanford who sounded warm as well.
I would recommend this to all people looking for a budget resort near beach/market.
They had a pool as well which seemed clean though we did not use it.
Also they charge 1500 as refundable security deposit for kitchen.

Nice place to stay.. The biggest advantage is its proximity to the beach... The apartment was good with a nice view of the pool
Only point to highlight is that It was little difficult to locate the place coz the actual name of the apartment is "Saldana Apartments" n nobody knows the name 'sandy's apartment' there.
Overall the stay was grt n I surely recommend this place to other ppl visitng goa ..

I had my first time visit to goa on 28th Jan 2014. I was along with my gf and one of my cousin brother. We booked a 1 bhk flat in it and it was a gr8 experience over there as i was very much afraid of being cheated. But i am very much happy after having the hospitality over there by Mr. Rajeev who is the caretaker. The flat was equipped with all the modern amenities such as Satellite Television, Refrigerator, Air Conditioner, a large sofa cum bed, washroom with geyser. and the best part is that u can also cook food of ur own choice as kitchen is also available and equipped with gas stove and all the utnesils available there. The balcony sit out made our stay much better. For others we don't know bt we took bath in swimming pool as it is available in the society. Thnx Mr Rajeev for your full support.

What was supposed to be a budget accommodation turned out to be costlier than a decent hotel. Dealing with the caretaker Rajiv was a very bad experience and he was not cooperative . He was just looking to make money somehow. Below are the sequence of events

1. We reached the property around 1 hour before the scheduled check in time of 12:00 pm. Caretaker Rajiv said that check in time was 1:00 pm. When we showed the booking print out he refused to accept it and charged us Rs 1000 for early check in and also did not give any receipt.

2. The property is 2 BHK, but has only on bathroom cum toilet. So obviously for 6 people it was not possible to manage. So we had to take another 1BHK from them at a cost of Rs 2000 per night. For 2 days it was Rs 4000.

3. On the check out day, after handling the keys coming to the common area, couple of ladies wanted to use the bathroom. The caretaker refused to use the toilet, and when we confronted with him to show some basic courtesy he was just laughing. Imagine how we would have felt at that time. Probably if we have given him some money he would have allowed.


So to summarize we had to shell out Rs 5000 more and total cost turned out to be Rs 8000 + Rs 5000 = Rs 13000. With this amount we could have got a much better place with a much better caretaker.

So my advice is to stay away from this property.

Good Place to stay. It's at the very good location. You could find and get everything in just a small walk. But, it is just a apartment not a hotel, so never expect any service. It is just a very good location and place to stay.

The rooms are good and will definitely suggest for my friends who go there.... Only draw back is that there was no swimming pool found which was portrayed in the pictures at the time of booking. Other than that its a good to stay apartment...
