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

Booked the hotel through Agoda having chosen it because it was close to the dive centre (Dive Goa, on the same road) Later found out it was Goa's monsoon season so dive shop was closed after all! My partner and I stayed here for 5 nights. My review could be a bit biased as we went in low season and... More

This hotel has a great property but it needs to be managed more properly, it needs some promotions too. It has got an isolated beach and this beach also requires some attention. The service is good (can be improved). Sea view rooms and cottages are great. C11/12/13 are great rooms with really big balcony and great sea view. Breakfast menu... More

My husband and I spent five nights (Dec. 24-28, 2013) at Prainha, which has an idyllic setting on a small, private cove. Our room (C12) was clean and charmingly decorated. It has a wonderful, large balcony overlooking both the pool and the sea. I really recommend this room. It was very relaxing sitting on the balcony. We were traveling around... More

There is a pool, restaurant and an a la carte menu. lots of palm trees that give it a beautiful scenery. Food was really good. Service was great too. Very attentive servers, managers seen... More

This hotel is a bit far away from the Panjim city as well as from the well known beaches of Goa such as Calungate, etc However, the location of the hotel is good since one can have the view of the Dona Paula beach and sea from the restaurant and pool...

If you are not a fan of big hotel chains but more into boutique hotels.if you want a very quiet place for you and your partner, this is the place to stay. Nice little rooms. Comfortable, not luxurious, but I recommend the sea view cottages. The swimming pool is nice although the tiny tiles are starting to get out and... More
