“Amazing experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2012

Stayed here from 27th may till 30th May 12. The rooms are spacious and clean, the staff was very courteous and helpful. Very well managed and beautiful property, its located very close to the famous baga beach hardly 2-3 min walking distance . The food at their restaurant was excellent. Overall it was great value for money. Would always come back here only.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2010

Have stayed in Villa Bomfim several times. Very nice family-run hotel, very quiet, nice little pool and good restaurant. In the middle of Baga road, so lots of restaurants near by. Baga beach very close, though beaches further up north (for example Morjim, Mandrem) much better and quieter.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2010

Visited place on organized tourist package trip. Location was really central, but still quiet. Hotel exterior is clean and comfortable with garden and nice pool with cosy surroundings (a porcupine in a gage in the garden). Near to beach, between Baga and Calangute beaches. Good bars and restaurants around, also the hotel has a good restaurant. Hotel did not have public internet terminal or connections, but nearest internet service 100m.

The service was excellent, kind and polite personel was extreme helpful and proactive, e.g. always greeting with a smile and bringing the room key without asking etc. Safety locker in in the reception with small fee. The breakfast was included and was ok, including coffee or tea, cereal or porrige, fruit or fresh juice, toasts, marmelade, egg in preferred form and ham or bacon (tiny piece).

The only concern and dissapointment was the room (#10). The room was in first floor, on ground level. Although there was AC and fan, the moisture in the room was really high and smell was really strong, there were also visual signs of mould. There was also a scent of pesticides, probably due to keep the crawling insects away, and it worked quite ok, as we did not see to many ants etc. Due to these breathing in a room was unpleasant and we kept balcony door open while staying in the room (except on night time to keep mosquitoes away). The clothes we kept in a closet still have the strong scent of damp after washing.

The problem was probably smaller in higher floors, so my suggestion is to request a room in second floor. They will probably suggest 1.5 floor, but it still means that it is first floor, next to ground, so do not accept it.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2009

I stayed there for 3 days and did enjoyed staying. Have stayed in the other hotel in Baga, I have a base to compare. We stayed in the ground floor room overviewing pool, and hardly could see any tourists in the hotel there. Very green area, clean rooms, extremely friendly personnel, simple breakfasts a la carte, convenient location in 5 minutes walk to the beach and in between restaurants and near supermarket - all this deserves the highest mark for a 2* hotel. It is definitely worth its price. I do recommend this place to anyone who wants get far from civilization yet enjoy the service at the same time.
