Owner extemely arrogant and rude. Soent two hours having their inispid complete bfast and tea and yet did not allow sitting on lpunge even when they were all vacant. Food was absolutely not worth the money. The attendinf staff was nice but the boorish owner spoiled the ambience.

Joets is a sweet guest house on the beach called Bogmalo - yes, actually on the beach. You can hop out of your bedroom window, onto the sand. This is the third time we've stayed here in the last 15 years and we've always loved it. Simple, quaint little suites, now air-conditioned, the rooms are clean and the housekeeping impeccable....

Thumbs up: Location (on beach), hopping restaurant (till 2 AM), and good crowd; Thumbs down: Expensive (not value for money). Tip: Try other restaurants around Bogmalo for better value and taste of Goan cuisine.

The location is great. it's right on the beach. The food is really good though a bit on the pricey side compared to other restaurants in the area. They have live singing and karaoke nights. They also provide access to the pool at bogmallo beach resort.

Joet's have an excellent location right on the beach. The rooms were beautiful and excellently maintained. Their restaurant down stairs served very tasty food. The beach was very clean and not crowded. Though we just stayed there for just a day, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Joet's.

“1st floor rooms 704,705 with a sea view. Its a guest house not a resort (like Coconut Creek) but rooms are nice with a small balcony!”

“Everyone on this site says ask for an upstairs room but really all rooms have a great sea view so I did not see the need.”

“My room at the rear, upper floor, facing the beach had a large balcony - see photo - and probably the best sea views whilst being furthest from the bar noise.”
  • An example of the thoughtfulness of the management - thank you!
  • Rear room, upper floor (possibly #706?) - the only one with a large balcony!
