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

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

The lobby is small & sweet with a atrium it also has a nice water body and staircase towards the room.The poolside restaurant serves one of the best Goan sausage chilly, the chicken and rice preparation was also...

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
