Farmagudi Residency
Ranked #4 of 7 Hotels in Ponda
Reviewed 23 June 2010

We visited Goa in themonth of November 2008. We travelled from Bombay via car. Farmagudi Residency is a hotel run by Goa tourism corporation( government body)
It is placed on a small hillock and has great location. We had booked an executive suite (Hall+ /A/c bedroom). THe rates were very reasonable (35 USD). The hotel has got ample space and has good greenary. It also has a restaurant which is marginally expensive. THe service is not very prompt and restaurant doe not accept cards.( only cash). Overall it is an OK to good hotel

As most Government hotels go - they have the best locations to stay at. Unfortunately, they're also not very good with the upkeep and with service. Booking GTDC hotels is much easier than it is in other states, unfortunately the focus seems to have been on the beachfront properties and not the hill ones.

GTDC Farmagudi is located close to the temples and wildlife sanctuary at Bondla and makes for a good place to base yourself if you're tired of the beach route. A friend was getting married nearby so we were put up there. Several of the rooms had moss and smelled odd. Someone complained that there was no faucet in their room. We took a peep at the dormitories which were badly in need of upkeep. The restaurant is decent - edible indo chinese and good seafood and eats. Not too much variety in food and drink, the Ruchiras at the other GTDC properties are far superior.
The only advantages are they organize tours and transport and are active throughout the year i.e. not only in tourist season.

Farmagudi hill resort has a great location with widely spread layout of cottages and lush green spread out landscape. The resort being run by GTDC, a government body do not expect any kind of service here. Right from reception the overall service is sleepy. Worst is even the credit card machine is out of order and you need to settle bills in cash. Another worst part is every time you order food in room you need to pay in cash. Restaurant is not clean. Entire propety has lots of greenery which is maintained well.... is a great plus. Location is very convenient as all major temples are in nearby vicinity. Stay here just for the locational advantage and lush green surroundings but do not expect anything more.
