We booked this at short notice, and having read the reviews, were encouraged and hopeful to give it a try!! The delay getting through Goa airports visa process meant that we didn't arrive until 2.30am, and our initial reactions were to be honest, not great. There were several members of staff asleep on the floor in the reception area, who...

This was our 5th stay at Dona sa Maria. We return because - It is has a very friendly atmosphere, not like those large characterless hotels where no one speaks to each other. We like meeting other return guests who we have made friends with. The hotel rates are reasonable & it it a comfortable place to stay. The room...

This is my 6th time of visiting Goa and we chose to stay here due to the amount of good reviews. We arrived at 2.30am after the nightmare that Dabolim airport still is and just wanted to go to bed. As a party of two couples we has asked to be near each other but one couple was above the...

This is a place run by a family and the room is pretty spacious and clean. There is no AC but then they had a ceiling fan. This place is to just relax and stay calm away from the crowd. One thing that the management can do to improve the stay is that they can provide AC accommodation and can...

Having stayed in North Goa many times we decided to move south for a more tranquil experience and boy did we get that here! The hotel is situated in a tiny village, its typical Goan basic but spotless accommodation. The pool and restaurant areas are very pleasant and the hotel staff are lovely. We experienced some issues with cash exchange...

Been going here since 2004, and would not think of going anywhere else. Puri and Serafino have become firm friends and whatever else is happening in the world, Dona Sa Maria just goes on as a haven amongst India's organised chaos! Great location, fantastic staff, and no two days are the same, which is what we love about the place.
