We arrived on 1 March and having emailed ahead requested a pool view room to which I was assured I'd have on arrival. This wasn't the case and we were put in room 002 which is at the back of the hotel overlooking a factory and it was very smelly. We did move the next night and the room was...

Agree with everyone. U get a back room overlooking toilet factory to begin. Disgusting. Then after complaining you get a balcony room overlooking pool. Adequate. The Big no no is Nowhere to put clothes. The wardrobes about 3ft wide. A joke. Not 1 shelf 1 drawer or anywhere to put your. Clothes. We lived out of our suitcases, which was...

No one there to check us in on arrival at 4.30am. Rooms not cleaned if they thought they looked clean and tidy. Bedding only changed once, but they did turn the sheets over so maybe this is deemed a change. Bar and reception staff were very friendly and helpful. Watch out for the room cleaners who also manage the in...

I really enjoyed my stay at Santa Monica. It boasts nothing extraordinary, but is in a great location between the beach and the main street - quiet location. Rooms have everything you need - get a room overlooking the pool! Toast and eggs included in some of the rates. Large menu and cold beer available at the restaurant.

The hotel is very basic by UK standards. Arrived late at night to find ourselves in a room at the rear of the hotel overlooking a factory. We could not use the balcony or open curtains. We requested a move and got one after a week. We were given a room overlooking the pool which is much better. The pool...

Hotel Sanata Monica is located near Calanghute beach and probably only good thing abut the hotel. Hotel is costly and is basically for non Indian travelers. You will see lots of old age foreigners staying here for longer time. The in house restaurant is basically customized for non Indians and pricey. Rooms are just good to live not more than...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
"If Goa is a near perfect winter holiday destination, Resorte Santa Monica should be your next choice. Comfortable and friendly, it is excellently located in a cul-de-sac, off the main Calangute-Candolim road. Not too far from the well-known St. Anthony Chapel in Calangute, yet close enough to the dozens of pubs, eateries and shops that dot the landscape. Here Goa's special local character can best be appreciated .The world famous Calangute beach is a mere 500 meters away from the resort. ... more   less
