Just come back from Arpora and had a great stay. Its been almost six years since I was in Goa and thats too long. I have stayed at the Marina Dorada before and four other places in Goa over the years so I think I have a fair bench mark to work to. The hotel is stylish well looked after and pleasant. The room we had was on the third floor and had a pool view. No lift but we need the exercise after eating at many of the excellent bars and restaurants nearby. The room is a little bit worn and dingy by western standards but quite acceptable and the cleaners did a good job each day.
Breakfast is a mixture of western and indian so if you fancy spicy food at breakfast you've got it. The guys serving are friendly and polite as are the reception staff and nothing is to much trouble.
The big plus for us is that it is situated at the end of a cul de sac, so very quite and relaxing. Its just a short walk to some excellent places to eat. The food in the hotel is good but part of our holiday is trying different places. Try the Spice Oven, good Indian food, British fish and chips and a lasagne to die for. Sounds tacky but its not and the owner is most obliging and friendly. He comes from Shimla where the mountain railway is in the North of India, as featured on the BBC recently. He runs a good bar and has a handle on what the British what with regard to food. Nick and Nat's in the village its self is good and All Spice is also a cracker.
We had a scooter all the time we where there so transport was no problem but there is a shuttle to the beach. The village centre is just over five minute on foot.
I would recommend this Hotel for the quite location and a relaxing stay but not too far out of the cut and thrust of things if you want it lively. For those who like nature there are more Kingfishers than you can shake a stick at as well as parakeets and other birds. I plan to return.
One last thing, Mackies Saturday night market is a must. Grate vibe, great prices (haggle) and good selection of food. live music to. If you need a change from spicy food the English man there does great roast pork or beef bap with roasties!
