“Unexpected Paradise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

After some experiences of minor quality at other locations in Goa this was really an amazing surprise: We were pampered at the Hotel Oceanic, we were taken care at the Hotel Oceanice and we will go back to the Hotel Oceanic. Rooms, Food, Service and environment were splendid.

This hotel is run personally by Les and Sheila Medcroft. They treat all their guests like old friends - nothing is too much trouble for them or their very willing and friendly staff. it is an oasis in Patnam/Palolem with its own swimming pool where snacks and drinks can be served and in the simple but very comfortably furnished bedrooms with fan - and for a little extra air-conditioning too. For those who wish to visit this part of the country but do not like either the basics of beach hut accommodation or the detached splendour of the Taj hotels, the Oceanic is a gem. It is to be hoped that Les and Sheila continue with their management of this hotel for many years to come.

This was our first visit to Goa, and we stayed at this charming small hotel, just six bedrooms, five minutes walk from a beautify beach. For us, it had everything you could possibly want for a holiday stay. Excellent rooms, friendly service, beautifully palm shaded dining patio, and a roof top pool. The breakfast was magnificent, and a great strength is that Sheila and Les offer both a European and Asian menu for supper. Crucial quality, totally relaxed with young children.
We will definitely go back!

Room Tip: We loved room 5

My family and I stayed at the beautiful Oceanic Hotel early last year and after twelve days of utter relaxation and fantastic service found it difficult to say goodbye! The gentle and caring attention applied to their guests by the owners, Les and Sheila Medcroft, is carried on by their staff at any request or requirement. A drink served to you by the pool, dietary requirements in the terrace restaurant or the organising of further adventures in the wonderful setting of south Goa nothing is too much trouble. The rooms were clean, spacious and attentively serviced and were a pleasant place to retire to each evening. This place is an absolute find as far as my family and I am concerned and we cannot wait to return. Get the butter chicken on the stove we will back soon!

Room Tip: It doesn't matter with just six rooms take any that may be available or you will miss out!

We had ten blissful days at the Oceanic and are longing to return again. The staff could not have been more attentive or friendly and the food was fabulous. The owners Les and Sheila went out of their way to make our trip memorable and excellent local knowledge and made fabulous suggestions for where to visit and eat during our stay. The rooms were very clean and with air conditioning. Although away from the beach this proved to be a bonus as there were welcome cool breezes and views and of course the fabulous pool. The hotel was quiet and tranquil and provided a wonderful break and we would love to go back and experience the wonderful position and hospitality again. First rate.

Room Tip: All rooms offered good value and were well placed, the air conditioning was not really necessary as...

Just got back from my second trip to the The Oceanic in the last two months. That says it all. Les and Sheila are superb hosts - nothing is too much trouble and all the staff could not be more helpful and friendly. The relaxing restaurant area is very attractive, shaded by palm trees, ditto the pool. All six rooms are of a high standard and all have balconies or outside seating areas - this was my seventh visit . There are lots of amazing beaches close by and the very reasonably priced tuc-tucs can easily take you to those that are further afield. I couldn't rate The Oceanic more highly as an escape from the British winter.

This was our second visit to the Oceanic. It is like a comforting balm after the sometimes hectic life in India.
Les & Sheila welcomed us as old friends and we were instantly at home.
It is very comfortable with those little touches of luxury that make you realize that somebody has thought about the whole experience of staying in a boutique hotel.
We look forward to returning at some time in the future.
