Dear Charles L,
Thank you for taking the time off to review your stay at Karma Royal Benaulim. I am glad you enjoyed your stay and my team cared for you.
Thank you for your kind words and recommendation. We look forward to seeing you again soon.
Been staying here every year for a number of years and loved it although run down and in need of a lot of tlc The apartment were always very clean. The resort closed for a few years to renovate a few of the apartments and on reopening had what seems to be a major cut back in staff especially housekeeping. One year after reopening the newly refurbed apartment we occupied was in need of a deep clean. The cleaning standards have definitely slipped as I don’t think our bathroom or apartment floors had seen a cloth and cleaning solution for some time.
Dear Mark A,
Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at Karma Royal Benaulim. At the outset we are very disappointed to learn that you did not enjoy your stay with us.
Although i am also surprised as i remember meeting you and the rest of the members of your group during your stay. And not once did you or anyone in the group give us an indication that you felt our housekeeping services wanting. However, i will conduct a separate enquiry to find out what went wrong with the cleaning practices of the Housekeeping team. I would have preferred if you brought this up immediately with us while you were here so we could have done something at the time.
Please accept my apologies and rest assured this is an aberration and not a practice. You will certainly not find another reason to complain the next time you're here.
We had an RCI exchange to this apartment block. Arriving from the UK in the early hours I was very disappointed to see we were given a run down, very basic unit. On the plus side - in the morning, we did see we had great views over the countryside from our back windows. I did ask to see the Imperial units which are lovely and what I was expecting. Apparently if we had exchanged for a 1 bedroomed unit rather than 2 bedroomed we would have had an Imperial unit. To give the Resort their due, they did offer to change our unit but the views would have been of the road rather than the countryside and my husband didn't want us to spend a day packing and unpacking. As we had very limited cooking facilities - one electric hot plate, we ate at the Resort most meals and we were delighted to see that the prices were very reasonable. The breakfasts were all very good. The evening meal depended on which chef was on. We ordered the same meal, which we had loved , but the second time was very different. All of the staff were very friendly and the service in the Restaurant good. We loved the nearby beach and went there most days. We hated the 'Taxi Mafia' outside and used them as little as possible. We will hire a car if we return. We were also shocked at the ' RCI levy' of over a £100. In fact it was more than our Restaurant bill. I felt as RCI members we pay large Maintenance Bills to our own resorts.
Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at Karma Royal Benaulim. I am glad you liked our services and my team looked after you.
We are happy to see that you enjoyed the food and service in the restaurant. The prices are affordable and intentionally reasonable. We have introduced Goan food that has caught on immensely with our guests.
Thanks once again and look forward to seeing you soon.
We have stayed at this resort every year for the past 12 years. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The refurbished Imperial apartments are to a high standard, it's just a shame that they did not refurbish all of the others at the same time.
This resort is better suited to those who like a quiet holiday, as it is away from the bustling nightlife that you can get in other Goan resorts.
Thank you for your kind words and we are happy to see you back to your favorite resort. I am happy my team cared for you during your holiday.
The resort is undergoing a phase wise renovation as shutting down the resort is not an option. We were shut down for some time as we had to do a lot of infrastructure back end work like electricals, swimming pool, sewage treatment plant, drainage etc. which is as important as the rooms. The balance rooms will be taken up in the next phase.
Thanks once again and look forward to serving you soon.
Very nice beach and location. Karma Royal stay is star value and very comfortable experience. Walk-able distance beach and surrounding places and very nearest other beaches. Peace and Calm place with homely stay.
Many thanks for taking the time out to review your stay in our resort. We are happy you enjoyed your holiday and my team looked after your needs.
We look forward to seeing you again very soon.
Very pleasant resort with homely atmosphere. We have syaed here at least 5 times before. Well maintained and some apartments recently refurbished to good standard. Only downside is distance to access local public transport, the 20 minute walk to beach and limited choice of local restaurants, although there is god restaurant on site
Thank you for your kind words and taking the time off to review your stay at Karma Royal Benaulim. We are so happy to see you come back to your favorite resort. I am glad my team looked out for you.
The refurbishment will continue in phases and we hope to take out more rooms this year for an upgrade.
Cheers and thank you once again.
