A bunch of us friends stayed for 2 nights at the Cidade and had a great time there. It's a cute hotel, very family oriented, and nicely tucked away but still located close enough to Panjim. It's not going to win any prizes for design, or food, or the quality of the rooms, but we were very well looked after...

A beautiful resort with great support staff. We had been there for a destination wedding. 30 mins from the airport. The food quality and quantity is nice. The rooms are luxurious.

We had opted for this through a package deal (flight+hotel) from MakeMyTrip. Though it is categorised as a 5-star property, I feel that their is a lot of scope for improvement .

We always go to Cidade de Goa when we go to Goa. The place is really good. The location is excellent with a beach and a hill there. The hill has small animals like deer. The place has activity room, spa, swimming pool, beach, small but good rooms and tasty food. Be aware there are also some snakes there.

Cidade de Goa was quite simply brilliant. The entire hotel feels like your own private resort. Nothing is too much trouble, you can have whatever your heart desires. 30 mins in taxi to Baga if you need some excitement, but to chill it is heaven.
