“always happy to return to Lucia Beach Guest House”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2012

We are lucky to have stayed @ the Lucia Beach Guest House for more years than I can remember, we could not think of staying anywhere else in Goa, the kindness & warm hospitality we have experienced over the years is second to none. The location of the Lucia Beach Guest House suits us perfectly, whilst being quiet & safe, it is within easy walking distance to many restaurants. There are always taxis available at the road end when you may wish to stray further & where during the day you can also board the local buses. Most importantly, from the rooms at the rear you have a wonderful sunset view through the palm trees to the sea beyond.We always reserve our room for next year before leaving...& dream of our next visit as soon as we return to our home in Scotland.

I stayed for 7 weeks in jan -mar 2011.I felt like a member of the family .I spent time with Lucia in the kitchen learning some local cooking,went to market with her on the local bus,attended Lawrences Birthday Party .
My room although small was perfectly formed for me.My only complaint would be the very very hard mattress...
It was a short stroll to the beach in one direction and 70m to main road for shops bars etc.
My favorite place was the terrace of my room looking out through the palm trees.I could be found there every morning at 0730 and every night at 1730hrs ,from my position i met lots of local people and many tourists some of whom i now call friends.. I was unable to go back this year and have missed Joseph Lucia and Lawrence so much and am hoping to go back next year .
Fingers crossed .

We have recently returned from our 12th visit to Lucia Guest House and for us and many of their guests it is like returning to our second home.

If you are looking for somewhere that will give you a flavour of Goan life then Lucia Guest House is the place for you. Joseph, Lucia and their son Lawrence make all their guests most welcome and really go out of their way to make your stay with them most enjoyable.

Lucia’s generous breakfast changes every day and is delivered to your room by a smiling Lawrence, all six rooms have a balcony so your day starts with breakfast “al fresco”.

The rooms are very clean, plenty of hot water, unusually for Goa a very comfortable bed, a fridge filled with beer and water at supermarket prices and bedding and towels are changed every 2 days.

It is located in a quiet area just off the beach at Sinquerim between the Taj and Kingfisher Villa, 2-3 mins walk to the main road for a bus or taxi with a number of restaurants within walking distance.

Like many of their guests we will be returning next year.

This was our sixth time staying with Joseph Lucia & Lawrence since 2005. As always the hospitality shown by our hosts was second to none, and we are already planning to return to stay with them next year. Situated in Sinquerim a little of the main road this little haven of tranquility is must for any one who wants to escape the "rat race" of holidaying in a hotel.

Although a small guest house their desire is to make your stay memorable and stress free.

After returning to our room after a hard day relaxing on the beach as if by magic Joseph will appear with coffee, in the morning it's the same. On our most recent trip my wife wanted to visit Mapsua to buy some material for a dress, Lucia not only provided the advice of which stall to go to she accompanied her and haggled the vendor down to an excellent price.

Whilst staying here Joseph and Lucia have invited us into their personal quarters to dine with them on a number of occasions treating us to home cooked Goan cuisine of a type that's not to be found in any of the restaurants and beach shacks.

We discovered Lucia beach guest house quite by chance in 2005 we where not disappointed then and nor on any of our subsequent stays

We were only able to stay for 2 months this year, from january to march, and once again another wonderful stay.
Very clean and tidy and plenty of hot water on tap!
Early morning calls available by courtesy of the cockeral and co, just in time to wake you up for the delicious breakfast, deliverd by lawrence, who is always so cheery.
Breakfast ranges from indian, english or whatever takes your fancy, guaranteed to put weight on.!
Well, shall we go to the beach today? just a short distance through the garden, or will it be the bus, right there at the end of the lane, towards the main road, or even a taxi, were one will be waiting for you, its all there on the doorstep.
We have booked again for 2013, and already waiting to get back there.(only been back in uk for a week).
Thanks again lucia, joseph and lawrence for a lovely stay with you.
Jan and Tony.

Lucia and Joseph are extremely warm as a couple,..I had visited them based on reviews I read....the guest house is very very well located ...right next to the beach between Kingfisher villa and Taj Vivanta...it cant be more exotic a location .... They ensure you are comfortable and in a world of materialism these days...it's nice to meet people who do things from their heart...I would highly recommend the place to everyone ... They have repeat clients because of their service. God bless them and their lovely son Lawrence

We discovered Lucia Beach guest house some 7 years ago and have been coming back every year since. Joseph and Lucia are the perfect hosts and they make you feel very welcome. The rooms are wonderfully clean and the location, just back from the beach, is perfect. It just doesn't get better than this!
