I had booked this property for a night after reading lot of good reviews online. However after reaching there I realised that it was not what I had expected from the reviews. As an Indian family traveler, I would advice you to stay away from this one. - First, They have a policy not to allow more than one kid... More

We spent a delightful two weeks at Dona Sa Maria in early March. The accommodation was comfortable, clean, roomy and excellent value. The pool was spotless and, with the surrounding garden, the perfect place to relax at the end of a ‘hard’ day on the beach or exploring the beautiful State of Goa. Location is 3 miles from the very... More

The beds were a solid sheet of plywood with a 4 inch very hard mattress on top! Not good for sleeping on.The hotel dogs which are tied in the kitchen at night are always barking. Although one of the many rules states no noise after 10pm guests in the bar were very rowdy until 2am. This I am glad to... More

Dona Sa Maria is a small, family run guest house. We have just returned from our fourth visit and found it better than ever. The owners are charming and friendly; Goa has a great tradition of hospitality. The rooms are spotless, there is a small pool and the gardens are very pretty and full of birds. If your taste is...

Had the pleasure and fortune of returning to this lovely hotel for 2 weeks - which is simply not long enough! We are a family of 4 travelling with our 2 boys aged 9 and 13 and nothing at all was missing from a "family holiday" and would recommend Goa to any family who is thinking of going. Service at...

We arrived on 5th January so there were still lots of Christmas lights to welcome us on our way from the airport.The journey takes about 40 minutes and cost about £10 at todays exchange rate. We arrived at about 5 am so all was... More

We recently returned from our second visit to the Dona Sa Maria in Tamborim. Serafino and Puri, the owners and Anita (the receptionist) were as attentive, helpful and hospitable as last year. They all are happy to share their knowledge of this region of Goa and further afield. As other reviews have said, many of the guests are retired brits... More

We stayed at the Dona Sa Maria guest house from mid November 2014 to mid December 2014. We stayed in the Family house to the rear of the main guest house. The stay was as expected fantastic. You always feel welcomed by all the staff both in the restaurant and the reception area and nothing is too much trouble for... More
