My home away from home...
on Jul 16, 2017
I have been staying at Surya Sangolda with my wife and 8 year old for the last month and we will continue for another couple of months. It has been a lovely experience. Thanks Rhys for delivering all that you have promised for our long term stay and a million thanks to Lucien, Sada, Sudarshan and Atul for making our stay as comfortable as possible. These guys are the housekeeping and maintenance team and are absolutely on the ball.
Like most places in Goa, you need transport to get around. Having said that there are a host of restaurants and cafes and supermarkets and food trucks just down the road so everything you need is just around the corner.
This is our halfway house between our lives in another country and our final home in Goa and it has been wonderful in all aspects. It also helps that it is a walking distance from our daughters school.
Thanks Surya Sangolda. All good things.
Amazing apartment and service
on Dec 23, 2016
With a vast number of options online its difficult to identify the right one. Pics can be deceiving considering the marketing involved. After narrowing down on a couple we shortlisted Surya Sangolda. Was a little skeptical with the number of apartments available, the location, the property owner etc but were taken by surprise.
Owner - Turned out to be friendly and responsive. Straightforward and relaxed, not pushy at all. Had no hesitation in reducing a day of our stay with no additional cost.
Place - It was truly a luxury apartment. Neat, clean, spacious and well planned. It was so cool that we hardly needed the AC inspite of the heat outside.
Staff - Amazing. Super quick and prompt to queries and issues. Very humble and warm.
Food - Not provided but why would you need it considering the number of restaurants around. Copperleaf was kickass.
Negatives that ended into positives - The sofa was not to our liking but the staff were courteous enough to let us know that the sofa in all apartments were the same and didn't mind us checking at vacant apartments.
The spin function in d washing machine wasn't functioning as per expectation but the staff were so proactive that they didn't mind washing the clothes in some other machine. It ended up being that the machine else where too had the same problem.
Recommendation - Definitely yes, I would henceforth stay at only this place if I'm vacationing in Goa.

We loved the folk and food in at Surya. The accommodation is comfortable and truly unique. It was an easy place to get to by public transport. Good beaches close by by tucktuck or bus. We hope to return there one day
Spacious room with poor service
on Dec 23, 2014
Apartment was spacious and the kitchen was fully equipped. It is located in an area with no shops or local attractions closeby. You would need to rent a vehicle if you are staying here.
It is a bit noisy at at times.

I went to surya sangolda over new year. The apartment I was staying in was amazing, furnished to a really high standard and was really clean. The staff go above and beyond what is expected to make your stay really comfortable. They knocked on my door after I arrived with breakfast, whenever I needed to go somewhere they offered to call a taxi or take me there on their scooters. On the day I was leaving I asked for a late checkout as my flight wasn't until the evening, as they needed my room for another guest they let me stay in the penthouse until It was time to check out for free. I would definitely come back to surya sangolda the only downfall is the location is a little far from the main areas as in calangute and baga. But it's a nice quiet area and a taxi is only 4/5 pound for a taxi. Overall amazing stay, with great service and staff!
