Went to the hotel for a wedding and I had a great time. The accommodation was cosy. We had a little cottage with a view of the pool and beach. Only point to mention was sound insulation with one of the neighbouring rooms wasn't great due to a shared locked door. The pool and the beach was great. Felt very... More

My family and I stayed at the Prainha hotel for 5 nights. As we had come for a family wedding, pretty much the whole hotel was taken over by our family members! The rooms are modern and spacious, equipped with air conditioning, satellite TV a small fridge, and have enough space for a spare bed if your group is an... More

Wonderful hotel with clean rooms, relaxed cottages and an almost private beach. The pool is well maintained and a great place to spend an afternoon. Food was quite pricey for the standard on offer, but there are plenty of restaurants in the area, so this isn't a deal breaker. The main (external) access road is currently being repaired, though I... More

We visited the Prainha Resort and stayed with them for 4 nights from 5th to 9th February 2015. The rooms were clean and decently sized and had all the necessary amenities. Room service was excellent. The pool was clean and the private beach was a huge advantage. There were a couple of stray dogs on the beach at times which... More

I've stayed at Prainha three times (January of the last three years) and found it to be quiet and unassuming, off the beaten track, with very courteous staff and reasonably good food. The adjacent beach is usually uncrowded.

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
