The resort is so peaceful and well maintained. The restaurant has some very good variety of food, specially the seafood.The swimming pool and lawns offer a relaxed time ;with the view of the beach so near. The management and staff are very courteous and welcoming. The approach to the hotel is a concern at the moment, due to the road... More

Prainha is indeed a hidden gem in Dona Paula, Goa, close to Panaji & just a few minutes up from the Dona Paula jetty. The road approach to it is partly dug up for sanitation works, but is still accessible to vehicles. There is free parking for around a dozen cars on the premises. Public Bus servicesto Miramar & Panaji... More

Great property, lavish green lawn, swimming pool and on the beach location... beautiful views from room balcony. Wake up in the morning and you could watch the sea right from your bed. Roaming around on the grass lawn with bare feet gives a feeling which we all miss in busy cities. Actually the USP of this resort is the lawn... More

I visited Prainha by the sea, in dec 2014 for a destination wedding of my friend. My friends had a lot of commitment-fulfilment issues withy the management. The rooms that were promised were not ready on time and they were informed only on the day of arrival of the guests, hence few room-shufflings had to be done. The room, somehow... More

Great sea facing property and unlike Pescadore (the horrible resort next door) the Prainha has a long sea touching property. They have sea facing cottages and rooms, but the best part is that the restaurant, pool and relaxing area is right alongside the beach. Superb! Staff is helpful and friendly. Food is good to.

We spent a family holiday here in October and we stayed for 4 nights. The hotel is very well located and has fantastic views and a secluded beach. The sea facing rooms offer a very nice view of the pool and the beach and the swaying coconut palms. The rooms are very tastefully well done and comfortable and the balcony... More

My wife and I visited Prainha in July for a 3 day break. There were mixed reviews about this place, but what attracted us was the "on the beach" rather than "by the beach" resort. Leaving aside the initial disappointment that it was a rocky beach which also was inaccessible because of the high tides, we were quite happy with... More

We booked 2 cottages (sea-facing) and they were indeed quite nice with gorgeous views of the Arabian sea. We visited in mid-July 2014 and stayed for 2 nights. At this time of the year, it rains heavily and the occupancy is not much at the hotel. The breakfast due to low occupancy was not buffet, rather you can take picks... More

Booked on cleartip.com and prepaid for hotel. I show up at he Hotel and the manager Samuel refuses to honor the booking because he says rate is low. In addition is not courteous to me as customer. He talks to me rudely and even starts screaming at me. The most obnoxious guy I have seen or met in the hotel... More
