My partner and I stayed here for a week in January, and despite being nervous about the negative reviews, we had a fantastic holiday. So much so that we have just booked to return in January 2015 for two weeks! Accommodation is basic but very clean. Pool is spotlessly clean. Grounds are so well cared for and beautiful. Breakfast is... More

We visited here in November 2013 and had a great time. The rooms are basic but clean and comfortable and the grounds are lovely. The hotel restaurant was excellent and the staff were so friendly! If we go back to Goa we would definitely return. We would like to say a massive thank you to everybody at Dona sa maria... More

The staff as always were happy... More

Room was in dire need of a good clean up and refurb (paint etc), net curtains were grey, bed very hard, location not as described on Booking.com as walk to beach is a good half hour in open hot sun, owner/manager overcharged us and we paid for 5 nights but only stayed for 2 (for the above reasons) - we...

Will start with the half board it is not you get an allowance of 250 rupees each per day and with the overpriced and poor food it's false advertising on the part of the tour operator.As for the rooms we were put in the cell block at the back with an employee sleeping on a mattress out side the door...

This was our first visit to the Dona Sa Maria and we were very happy with it as a base for a great holiday. We chose it because we wanted something not too big and authentic - we weren't after gated five star luxury. We got exactly what we wanted at Dona Sa Maria - it is a small hotel... More

After staying 3-4 days in the North, we wanted to experience the Southern atmosphere. We initially contacted several hotels/ BnB in south Goa and the only hotel which has a swimming pool for our budget was Dona Sa Maria. We were intimidated to have read some terrible and poor ratings. Despite all that, we ventured in and to our surprise,... More
