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

We went to Vivenda Dos Palhacos just for one drink but were immediately charmed by the place. We are now on a stop over in Mumbai airport and cannot resist writing a review. This is a place like no other, in the hour that we spent there we could not stop admiring the incredible villa, enjoying the gorgeous cocktails, playing... More

Vivenda is not your typical hotel. It is more akin to staying in a colonial summer house belonging to a friend, who isn't there, but tells you his uncle will look after you during your trip. We stayed here for four nights back in April and it was the highlight of our trip. It is difficult to describe the set... More

Have stayed before but we usually go when we want some fresh Western style food. It's always fresh & tasty. Best beef steak I've had in South Goa. Great salads. Excellent drinks menu & all reasonably priced when compared to Western rates.
