We stayed 8nights and realised that we literally stayed in one of the best place in South Goa.. We slept like a baby every night, in a room that was very well built and yet connected to the nature with great comfort and cleanliness.. Going to a new place and not being able to be yourself is the biggest downfall... More

The huts are simple but more than adequate with comfortable beds, hot water and mosquito nets and a hammock on your porch. Mosquito coils are also provided. The name 'Secret Garden' is so apt for this place, it is lush with trees and bird life. Nazir and Monica were really lovely hosts, helping us with a very tricky travel issue... More

Arrived here looking to stay a night or two, and ended up staying here for ten days! Nazir & Monica welcomed us into their family run resort and made us feel instantly relaxed. They are both generous and kind, and their little boy is gorgeous! We stayed in a garden facing hut with a comfy bed and clean ensuite, lovely... More

Nazir and Monica are great hosts and really made our visit. Nazir will do everything and anything you ask of him, and Monica knows a lot about the area and is very friendly and easy going. Basic accommodation, not for fussy people. Everything you need in beautiful surroundings. Loved it.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. You were asked to keep the noise down as it was 2:30 in the morning. You were not shouted at nor were you asked to stop enjoying yourself. You were simply asked to keep the noise down as there were other guests and children staying here who were being disturbed.... More

Basic accommodation/huts set in a nice garden area, but they are very close together and you can hear conversations and noise when they are occupied. I was particularly unimpressed by the loud prayer calling on the loud speaker every morning at 6am from the mosque close by. It was always hard to get back to sleep after it, as it... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. India as a whole is a mix of many different religions and cultures which most people are keen to experience and be part of.

We stayed once here over new year, and once later in March - as we decided to return! We were made to feel so welcome, and nothing was too much trouble. Nazir and Monica helped arrange taxis and rickshaws whenever we required them. We even had a go at yoga which took place in the beautiful gardens. This place is... More

Secret Garden is in great spot equal distance from Patnem and Palolem. Nice gardens. Nazir and Monica are lovely hosts, very friendly and eager to help. Sorted us out with scooters no problem, and remedied the (predictable) hot water/electricity issues for us. Overall atmosphere is relaxed, chilled out. Good mix of people staying there. Breakfast (included) is fine - there's... More

The hut we were given was no more than a badly built shack, where walls did not meet the roof and let in Mosquitos, my garden shed is better made.
