Not a great location - dogs too noisy

Posted Dec 12, 2017
Pros: Decent shower and bed
Cons: See comments above
Location: Unfortunately, too many road works around location of guesthouse which you had to walk past to get to the beach,
1. Arrived at 3.00am - taxi driver had trouble finding rooms - both taxi driver and ourselves phoned rooms several times - no response. Eventually found someone who directed us. 2. Owner kept 4 dogs which barked most of the night. 3. Had to climb over wooden board at bottom of stairs to stop dogs going upstairs. 4. Upstairs smelt 5. Owner did not get up early so had to weave around dog fouling in yard to get out of gate. 6. We hired motorbike and had to ensure dogs did not get out of yard each time we came in or went out. 7. Air conditioning unit over bed leaked in middle of night and dropped lots of water over head, pillar and bed during the night, 8. Stuck it for 3 nights - then left and booked in at Eve Resort (lovely place) for remainder of holiday,

dear sir , i agree your stay with us was short and you went most unexpectedly, but as you said when you arrived we have our location on google maps , and all of our guests who arrive early morning always inform us before hand to make sure someone is there to welcome you , the taxi driver however i am not sure what intentions he had to make you run around in circles it is quite sad that you left without informing us , however it is also quite strange that i met you on all the days you stayed with us and never even once you let us know that your room's AC was leaking surely we would have asked a technician to come and check the room ,. our locality has not just my dog but a lot of stray dogs who bark all night and unfortunately i cannot do anything to stop them , as far as i am , i do get up at a specific time and sleep early , because of the season time and lots of responsibilities, however i again do wish you had informed us , even if you wanted to go away we would have accepted it , also my boy gets up as early as 5 am and i am not sure how early you want anyone to get up and he cleans the entire surroundings , the foul smell you were referring to is from a canal nearby which is off premises and over flows quite often

Very comfortable family run accommodation.

Posted Dec 11, 2017
Pros: Hosts, comfortable bed, clean rooms, balcony.
Cons: Strength of the WIFI in Rooms.
Location: Quite location on the edge of Rajbag. Rajbag and Patnem Beeches are both a short walk away.
Very welcoming and helpful hosts. The Pandey Residency offers good sized family run accommodation. Rooms are clean and spacious with good size balcony, large king size very comfortable bed. Rooms are very clean and well maintained. Situated on very quite street at the end of Rajbag. Would definitely consider staying again.

Comfortable simple guest house.

Posted Dec 27, 2016 on Hotels
Pleasant guest house about a kilometre from beach and bars. Slightly haphazard service but no major problems. The odd cockroach. Hotels.com description of partial sea views amusing as nowhere near the sea. 32''tv actually 21''. But remember it is a guesthouse not a hotel. Good sit out balcony area. They have 4 dogs who were very friendly.

Dear sir , I would like to apologize for any inconvenience caused to you during your stay , however I would like to clarify certain things 1. You are right we are a homestay , and I as an owner of this property do acknowledge the limitations I have for my property ,wherein I try and give clean and secure accommodation to my guests. Unfortunately my location does limit the service people to come in on time and I do apologise for any inconvenience caused , however if you did stay during 16-20 December I did encounter a issue with tata sky wherein one room connection was not working I have my staff there 24X7, at my house , but as they are busy doing chores, most guests do not mind coming to ask for something , I am sure if you did ask the staff for something they would be more than willing to oblige to make your stay comfortable. The internet is the highest speed broadband available locally , we do provide the password if the guest asks us , sometimes due to unavoidable circumstances the Wi-Fi does not work but I try and have it restored as soon as possible some guests don't ask for it as they want uninterrupted vacation. The rate did not include any breakfast , but if we had known I could have been more than happy to make some for you at an advance notice. It is my policy not to disturb the guest during the stay of the guest , but we do ask for feedback whenever I get to meet them . I am so sorry once again to have not lived up to your expectations , and I hope you do come back to us to show our true hospitality.

Great Value

For the price we paid it was excellent. Nice bed and clean. Parking was a bit of a pain but I am sure most will not be arriving by car.

Arrive early!

Posted Feb 6, 2015 on Hotels
I arrived at 9:00 p.m. to find the place dark and deserted even though I had a confirmed booking. A very kind neighbor of the property volunteered to fetch the owner who arrived about 20 minutes later and said that she had no knowledge of my arrival! After the confusion was resolved I enjoyed the room (#107) which had a balcony on 2 sides and a fantastic view of palm trees and neighbors backyards. There was a/c and a relatively clean bathroom. The owner is very laid back and I was very much left to my own devices which suited me but may not be to everyone's taste. There's a 5 star resort next door where you can pay to use their swimming pool and private beach. There are other beaches very close by. Overall, I enjoyed my time here.

Another great stay at Pande Residency

Posted Jan 26, 2015 on Hotels
Another great stay at this awesome and very friendly guest house. I took a work colleague with me this time, and he loved it too. You arrive to a warm welcome and are shown directly into your well appointed room. Mine had a wrap around balcony that was just perfect for sitting in the shade reading during the heat of the day. The beds are comfortable, the rooms have AC and the bathrooms always have hot water. Perfect, just perfect.

This place rests in a small lane right behind the Lalit hotel. It is handled by a very nice couple who will cooperate with you at all times. I cudnt find a more clean and hygenic place in south goa especially when its rainy season when everything else is muddy and not so clean. The room has a nice soft bedbed, effective ac, a small flat screen tv with cable and luckily we had a balcony its close to palolem beach so thats a plus. Would recommend it for sure.
