Hotel Calangute Towers


The hotel is located well, about 15 mins walk to the Calangute beach. Right on the main road which connects vegator- Anjuna - baga- Calangute and candolim beach. Location is the best point of this hotel. The premium rooms are in a newly built block, thus they are quite good and comfortable. Swimming pool is of a decent size and maintained properly. The two major major drawbacks are the hospitality (attitude of the waiters, chef and managers) and the food. They fleece you by charging 500 Rs. for a plastic key, incase you loose it. The fat sous chef, who doubles as a manager at times is absolutly shameless, he has no manners re talking to girls, let alone customers. The staff is the most rigid people I have come across in hospitality industry. They never accommodate to your requests, and flatly refuse along with truck loads of arrogance. The food is very very average, the breakfasts below average, they shut breakfast at 1030 on the second, if it is 1031 then you have to first ask and please the chef, only then will they think about it. I am frequent traveller and stayed at many hotels ranging from 5-3 stars, however this one stands out for all the wrong reasons. So I suggest, people beware, choose this hotel only and only as a very last resort, and incase you end up here be prepared to live by their rules only. And DONOT engage with the staff in anyway, nor make any requests. Room Tip: Pick only premium or suite rooms, as they are located in the newly built section of the hotel.
