Reasonably quiet, clean and large room with separate lounge & balcony. Bathroom was ok but didn't use hot water as every time the water heater was switched on I got a slight shock from the shower taps. Staff were friendly and the bar/pool at the back of the building were a good place to have a quiet beer if the...

Not the height of luxury, but a very pleasant place to stay. A lovely old Portuguese style building. The staff are so nice and helpful. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The pool is clean and refreshing. If you really want to get a feel for what it's like to be in Goa, rather than being in a resort that...

Not a bad place in goa. It has tv and a balcony but the sheets and towels are very dirty. We were there in off season so the pool was closed the whole time. The electricity often cut out but that was in the whole area. In comparison to where a lot of other people stayed don joao wasn't too...

I have stayed at a fair few hotels in India and so aware that standards can really vary. However we arrived at 3am in the morning - staff on reception were unwelcoming and unfriendly, but it was the middle go the night. We were taken to our room on the 3rd floor - the sheets were stained, the room hadn't...

I have stayed at this hotel a million times because it just keeps on attracting me towards it whenever I visit Goa. The hotel is about 500 mtrs away from Anjuna Beach and 2 kms away from Vagator and about 5-6 kms away from Baga and Calangute beaches. The resort is extremely popular amongst Russians. All famous shacks like Liliput...

We stayed here in March 2015. We booked as it was the cheapest place in Anjuna. Saving us a few £100's to spend while we were there. The flight and hotel for 2 x weeks was £500 each and that included toast and coffee for breakfast. The first room we had was on the top floor and to be honest,...

I've stayed in some fairly grotty places in India over the years, but this place really was bad. Right from the start I had problems with the reception staff. Not only did they try and get my passport off me, they also wanted my credit card! They have a bank of "safes" round the side of the reception area where...

Hotel itself is quite good. But the service is not good. I got an emergency call from my family, and eager to come back as soon as possible So I checked out 4 days earlier than my plan. As there's no cancellation condition and policy, the staff said there's no reimburse for my early check up. I felt like blindfolded...

“Never stay on the ground floor. Ask for a room in the main business where the view to the road is closed by the building - it will help to avoid terrible noise.”
