We were booked here by our tour company and having seen it on Tripadvisor I was a bit concerned seeing some of the previous reviews. I didn't need to worry, some people obviously need something to complain about but we couldn't fault Prainha.Either way, staying in a standard room or cottage (seen both) it is a very relaxing place to stay in Goa. Close enough to Panjim and to be able to see whatever sights take your fancy, far enough away from the crazies staying in the regular tourist destinations on the north and south sides of Goa. Spent 1 week here after 4 weeks in northern India, came from the madhouse that is Rajasthan/Agra/Varanasi (not hot water/air conditioning etc.) to here and don't regret a minute. Sitting in the shade under the palms around the pool area eating great food and cheap drinks, what more could you want to relax. Yes, it can be a fair hike from your room down to the pool and dining area but the view, especially at sunset makes it all worth while. The service everywhere was great starting with reception all the way through the food and drink staff, the cleaning staff and even the pool boy. Everybody seemed genuinely happy to see you. The beach is another bonus, we were here for Holi and the people on the beach were amazing. This is one resort I would recommend to all my friends, it may not suit the youngsters/rave scene types that are better off in Baga or Calangute but for a relaxing stay in the sun Prainha will do me nicely.
