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

This hotel is of a hostel or backpackers standard, we visited Goa first two weeks March 2014, needed a base to drop off bags, get our bearings then set about exploring South Goa, this hotel was the best option to get a cheap flight and digs included, price did include half board but all we had was breakfast the days...

We are a family of four who recently stayed at the Dona Sa Maria hotel, we booked through Thomas Cook and the hotel was exactly as it stated in the brochure. We knew that it was a simple style hotel and that it was a walk through a small hamlet to the beach. The staff at the hotel were very... More
