"This was our first holiday to goa. We went with another couple that had been to goa before but not stayed at park avenue hotel. We were all really pleased as although the rooms were basic (but we were told to expect this ) they were cleaned every day and clean towels and bedding provided every day. The staff make this hotel worth coming back to. Nothing was too much trouble for them and they were really helpful and freindly, some real characters amongs them. the food was excellent and the hotel is in a good central position although the road outside is very busy we didnt notice any traffic noise as we had rooms towards the rear away from the road. Excellent holiday we cant wait to go back and are definately booking for next year."

"We booked a room with park avenue from their agent in mumbai . Who promised us there would be room services. The lady at the reception was shocked to even know there was such a thing as room service. They charged 1200 Rupees for a double bed room . A lot of my friends had told us that this was too costly being off season .But we trusted the reviews and reviews of friends who went earlier (they had paid 600 rupees and they told us it was 300 off season) . We were shocked to see the way the agent and the hotel increased the prices .
The hotels is really an apartments with lots of peoples names on the doors. So it looks like the guys who own those small dingy apartments rent it out to the hotel.
After complaining they finally changed our rooms .The new room was better but we could not open the window as it was stinking outside. And the room over looks the place where the staff dry their clothes
here are photos of the dirty room
We went to the restaurant which does not have any place to sit !! We ordered a sandwich and a tea which took 1 hour and also was the wrong order.
The lady promised tea as that was what the agent promised but in the morning there was no sign of the tea.
Beware of the group of taxi cabs outside the hotel they are total conmen and will charge you according to how much they can get out of you. They will also ask the workers at the restaurant where you are from before quoting a price. Walk to the end of the road there is a taxi stand there and as 2-3 driver before settling for a good driver.

"I would reccomend this hotel to everyone without a doubt..
My friend and I stayed at the park avenue jan 08. it was faultless, spotless clean rooms, beds and towels changed every day.
We had a room that overlooked the busy calangute road, although noisy specially as Krishna's resturaunt does'nt close till the early hours. It was not overbearingly noisy. ( hot chocolate and honey bee seemed to help.)
Friendly staff. What a great laugh they all were. Nothing was too much trouble.
It was so close to everything..
Next time tho folks could you make sure we are not on the top floor....
Thank you all for making our holiday fantastic... Donna & Kaz..xxx"

"We stayed at Park Avenue for 3 weeks in November 2007 and enjoyed everything about this hotel.
The staff in particuar are very friendly and helpful. Yogi, the receptionist, likes to sing and dance and Nelson, one of the waiters likes to torment people (and he likes to be thrown in the pool!!)
Anyone staying at this hotel will have a great time.
ENJOY YOUR HOLIDAY."

"We have just returned after spending 2 wks at this hotel, It is in a very good location, staff are excellent, rooms are absolutely spotless along with the sheets and towels which were changed daily.
The pool was cleaned daily and fresh towels available poolside.
I read other reports people had written about this hotel before we arrived, some not so good, but I can honestly say the room we had compared very well with some of the better hotels we have stayed in over the 6 years we have been coming to calengute.
The only negative thing I would say is the music is played far too loud so take some earplugs with you.
WELL DONE PARK AVENUE !

"This hotel offers basic but very clean accommodation. Rooms are cleaned and sheets are changed every day. There is an extensive menu to choose from and we ate in the hotel most nights as the food is excellent and great value. The pool is very clean and is tended to every day. What makes this hotel great is the staff! Especially the room boys, bar staff and waiting staff - all eager to please and always have smiles on their faces.
This hotel is situated on the Calangute/Baga road and rooms at the front are quite noisy. Of course, this isn't the hotel's fault. On booking you may wish to request a room not overlooking the road if you would prefer a quiet night.
Apart from this there is nothing bad to say about The Park Avenue, I would be glad to stay here again if visiting Calangute.

"Hotel is situated on busy road so well worth booking room with a pool view. Rooms basic but very clean.
Every member of the staff here is amazing! Friendly, helpful, cheerful (no matter what the time) and great fun to spend time with.
The restaurant serves wonderful food from the plain to the exotic, can definitely recommend the lobster - what a treat.
If you decide to stay here you will be guaranteed a very warm welcome by all
