I stayed in this delightful home with my husband and two older teenage sons in January this year. It really did feel as though we were friends staying as family guests. Charlotte and Simon made us very welcome and ensured that we knew how to amuse ourselves during our stay. We had detailed written instructions for our taxi driver for... More

Vivenda dos Palhacos is a lovely small hotel. It feels almost like staying in someone's home. The house is built around a small pool and lounging area, and the rooms are decorated with charm and taste. The hotel staff are very friendly, as are the hosts (Simon and Charlotte) who are usually around during the day. An excellent breakfast is... More

This has been absolutely perfect! A smal boutique hotel which feels more like a home away from home! The service is amazing and the staff is friendly and polite. The quality of the food is fantastic, whether western or Indian cooking. Charlotte and Simon are great hosts! The rooms are slightly on the smaller side and the dogs can be... More

Reserve for meals & you will be surprised to find excellent western food at amazing prices. Salads that are safe to eat & tasty. Well worth it when you are all curried out! Plus a beautifully restored old Portuguese house.

This accommodation was recommended by our travel company Audley Travel so we were expecting a high standard. However the write up we had before hand was not true reflection of what we found. The facility was rustic which was great however it's level of cleanliness in the bathrooms in particular was poor. The drain in our bathroom was full of... More

The sort of place that you feel relaxed in as soon as you enter the door and are greeted by the, in our case, bar staff in the kitchen. Simon is a very helpful owner and organised us a driver and places to visit that he thought might interest us. We visited many of the old Portuguese mansions/houses in the... More

Not on the beach, but the property is so wonderful. Old Goa style rooms - the property is full of books with a nice kitchen, dining area inside. The breakfast was great and the fresh food we ordered for lunch was also great. Call them up and ask them to describe the rooms - each one is so different! Would... More

We stayed for a night in Vivenda Dos Palhacos. Charlotte and Simon are great hosts. Special thanks to Charlotte for making the children at ease. Darjeeling is ideal for family. Children loved the sleeping area. Charlotte was very helpful in directing us to their house as we were driving and could not find any sign boards to the property. The... More

Vivenda Dos Palhacos was our last stop on a four week trip, and it was a perfect ending. The house is atmospheric and comfortable. The kitchen bar/staff are friendly and acccomodating and take a lot of pride in their work- with delicious results; as long as you are reasonable in your requests, the menu is only a guide. Simon, the... More

Vivenda Dos Palhacos really is amazingl. You don't actually feel as if you are staying in a guest house but in the home of a great friend. This fantastic brother and sister combo make you feel so at home and the service they offer, along with their team, is just outstanding. Each room is so unique and special, the pool... More
