Book pool view room, not the basic rooms, as much better quality for an extra fiver a night.
Staff were exceptional, nothing too much trouble.
Lucas rooms the hotel section, and he was most helpful.
Jagdish runs the restaurant, and he and his staff were brilliant.
only 2 mins walk to the beach, and only 3 mins walk to the main road.
plenty of shops and places to eat in the immediate vicinity.
Rooms cleaned every day, bedding and towels changed every 2 days.
An absolutely wonderful, friendly but professionally run guest house. With pool, bar/restaurant. This place far exceeded our expectations for the price for our 3 week stay. It’s basic rooms are clean and linen and towel change every day. Nothing is too much trouble. Can’t recommend highly enough. Pool is good but beach a few mins away with plenty of food shacks to choose from. Calangute a hive of activity with its restaurants and stalls, as is Candolim. You will need to take own toiletries etc but there is a general store next door but one. So I got ours there. Can’t rate highly enough!!
As we were in Goa for 6 weeks staying far south on Agonda beach we decided to visit our old haunts up around Calangute. We were a bit reluctant as we had heard how busy that area was now. However, by staying at a Maggies it made the visit North most enjoyable. A quick & easy check in then taken with our luggage to our room. We were given an upper room overlooking the pool in one of the coloured rooms. It was a fab room - first impressions were 'wow' - spotlessly clean, a huge comfy bed, very spacious, lovely balcony overlooking the pool & a shower room with a shower curtain so that you didn't soak the whole of the bathroom when showering- plus lots of very hot water! There was a small alcove with a fridge in, also we had A/C & a television. The sleep quality was good as not much noise from Holiday street. The room was made up/tidied every day. The pool was a welcome change from the beach & rough sea. The on-site restaurant called Top Nosh was very good with friendly service & tasty food. The location is excellent as a short walk to the beach & plenty of nice restaurants close by. Even though we no longer like the North area as just too 'British' & busy for us, our stay at Maggies was most enjoyable & if staying North ever again - Maggies would be the place I'd want to stay.
Arrived at 3.30am and there was someone here waiting to show me to my room. Staff seem friendly
Very very large but hard bed...took me ages to sleep.
Internet is terrible, can’t send a photo cuts out continuously. My first evening here and I can’t get a message to a friend.....looks like I’m going to have to find a bar with internet...ongoing the internet has not improved and the password has been changed 2 times in less than a week.
Breakfast is not included, personally I’d prefer Breakfast to air conditioning. Woke up to load music blaring from the restaurant early morning....the same tune 3 times in a row ! Eventually went to get a coffee, coffee was terrible, couldn’t taste any coffee at all. Beware there is loud music blaring from the bar and restaurant from Sunrise to late at night so if you are looking to chill I’d maybe try elsewhere, one night I was kept awake until 1.30am with blaring music from “Top Notch” the on site restaurant at Maggie’s
There is a locker in the cupboard which is a nice touch, however not ever a bar of soap supplied here, so off to the shops to find some toiletries 😎
Now been moved from room 101 to 404 I can’t even get an internet signal in this room although the room is less noisy than 101 and the bed is marginally softer !
I’ll be honest I’m paying Rs2500 per night and I don’t think it’s brilliant value...I see they are asking Rs6000 for some of the rooms....I’d be really unhappy if I’d paid that !
Simon was helpful, I paid Rs1500 to extend my stay as checkout is 10am
Stayed at maggies for 4weeks ,on arrival we were given a room at the back with a balcony with no view at all ,although the room was spacious & nice ,we asked to be moved to a room overlooking the pool ,he explained they were all full because people re book them months in advance ,but he moved us as soon as one was available ,these are spacious rooms with a large balcony The rooms that are not around the pool vary with views & size don,t be afraid to asked to be moved they will do if they can ,the pool was a good size & cleaned everyday ,as was the room ,with clean bedding ,the staff are friendly & helpful ,the bar restaurant attached to Maggies serves excellent food ,It's only a couple of minutiae walk to the beach with lots of restaurants & shops just outside ,my only complaint would be they could do with some more sun beds around the pool ,we have already booked again for next year
