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 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

We stayed in December 2014/January 2015 with our 8 year old daughter. We loved the extremely clean and well maintained pool and had it to ourselves for hours at a time. We loved the owners and the staff and the other holiday makers/long stayers. We made lots of friends, some of whom we have kept in touch with. Many retired... More

This was our first time in Goa. We wanted to relax and stay somewhere quiet. The Dona Sa Maria's family run and welcoming with helpful staff. The rooms are simple and clean. We had a room in the main hotel on the first floor with a balcony overlooking the pool. The hotel's in a quiet location between the village and... More
