Calangute GTDC the best in terms of location in Goa
on Dec 12, 2017
GTDC calangute residency is having the best location in the beach. This time the restaurant was closed for lunch and dinner but breakfast was served which had buffet breakfast. Most food items were veg but they were excellent starting from fruits to south indian delicacies and pao vaji. Non veg people can take egg items. It located on the beach with its breath taking view.
Amazing Location .. On the Spot

I had already visited Goa twice and my last visit was on 2017. I was always wanted to stay in this Hotel but was unable to get the rooms as during November it is always full.
This hotel is bang on the Beach i.e. just come out of Hotel and you are on Beach. Although you have walk around but it is small distance. As it is Government property so you can expect the operation in is similar condition. Check-in was slow process. Although I had booked suite but due to some water leakage they shifted me to Deluxe room for one night (but I suspect otherwise as the occupant if the suite had overstayed one more day and the staff wanted to accommodate that).
Next day they shifted us to suite Room No 103. It is in First floor and has a Balcony giving view of Beach. The view is fantastic and in night you can hear the waves. The room is quite spacious but decor is bit old fashioned and could be maintained properly.
The tariff was included with Breakfast. Breakfast was not that variety but ok.
Also the duty manager was really helpful as I had misplaced my return boarding card and ticket so he allowed me to use his office system to take printout of ticket and boarding card.
1. Right on Beach
2. All restaurant / Beer shop nearby.
3. For shopping all shops available nearby
4. Taxi and Autos available nearby
5. ATM also walk-able distance
1. As on Beach late night people walking and so some disturbance
2. Music from shacks till late night
3. There is one karaoke restaurant next to hotel which is 24 x 7 so late night music
4. Check-out process is manual so make sure if you want to catch flight have sufficient margin of time.
Overall good hotel because of location. Although tariff is bit high but no copmplaints
Nice hotel, best location

The best part of this hotel is its Location. It is located on the most popular and most crowded beach of Goa. The hotel rooms are spacious, neat and clean. The staff is also nice and cooperating, but room service needs some improvement.
Considering its location, the rates are highly justified. This hotel made our experience of Goa memorable.

Great place to stay, The view from the Balcony is breathtaking. You cannot miss the wide spread of breakfast and a courteous staff. This place is BANG on the beach so you can literally play in the beach and get to your room without carrying anything except the key.... The pool in the resort is good too. Room service is good.
Negative is the wait time for the check-in, and some rooms weren't cleaned well before we checked in.
Overall its a good place to stay & Experience GOA...!!!
Good location but needs little care

The location of this hotel is excellent. Right on Calangute Beach. Though they have done renovation, but still it can be better. But still as per Government standards things seem to be ok. Buffet breakfast is good but they charge Rs. 100 for extra person and kids above 5 years. Their restaurant was not operating for lunch and dinner. Bathroom was clean. We have previously stayed in Colva Residency but Calangute Residency is much better in comparison to Colva Residency. You can have nice view of the beach and sea from your balcony itself. Enough parking space available if you are driving. Overall decent stay but much can be done due to advantage of the location.
