This is my 6th time of visiting Goa and we chose to stay here due to the amount of good reviews. We arrived at 2.30am after the nightmare that Dabolim airport still is and just wanted to go to bed. As a party of two couples we has asked to be near each other but one couple was above the...

This is a place run by a family and the room is pretty spacious and clean. There is no AC but then they had a ceiling fan. This place is to just relax and stay calm away from the crowd. One thing that the management can do to improve the stay is that they can provide AC accommodation and can...

Having stayed in North Goa many times we decided to move south for a more tranquil experience and boy did we get that here! The hotel is situated in a tiny village, its typical Goan basic but spotless accommodation. The pool and restaurant areas are very pleasant and the hotel staff are lovely. We experienced some issues with cash exchange...

Been going here since 2004, and would not think of going anywhere else. Puri and Serafino have become firm friends and whatever else is happening in the world, Dona Sa Maria just goes on as a haven amongst India's organised chaos! Great location, fantastic staff, and no two days are the same, which is what we love about the place.

Although the room was basic it was very comfortable clean and had everything we required. The staff couldn't do enough for...

When we first arrived at here I was a bit shocked on how basic the room was especially at 3am. The staff were very welcoming. When we got up in the sunshine and went for breakfast we realise that is was going to be a lovely place to spend our holiday in. The staff are wonderful and cannot do enough...
