First of all, the reason you are looking at this hotel is because you are planning a trip to Goa? You may have been before or it could be your first time. HAVE NO DOUBTS THE BOGMALLO BEACH RESORT IS MAGNETIC, IT KEEPS PULLING YOU BACK, ITS ADDICTIVE, ITS TRUELY MAGICAL. What more can we say.
THE STAFF are very attentive and just aim to please, EVEN THE LESS EXPIERIENCED JUST WANT TO BE OF SERVICE, BY NAMING SOME WOULD BE AN INJUSTICE TO THE REST, WE WITNESSED QUITE RUDE BEHAVIOUR BY SOME GUEST BUT THERE WAS NO NEGATIVITY IN RESPONSE WHAT SO EVER.
THE LOCATION, in a quiet corner of Goa, RIGHT ON THE BEACH, CLOSE TO THE AIRPORT, WITH A VILLAGE FEEL TO IT, SOME GREAT WALKS THROUGH THE PALM TREE FORESTS WALKING PAST ALL THE LOCAL RESIDENTS AND THEIR HOMES, AND THEY ALL WEAR A SMILE AND HAVE A KIND GREETING, LITTLE PIGGLETS AND TINY CHICKS IN MOST PLACES, AND SOME LOVELY HOMES. THE SHOPS AND STALLS AS USUAL WANT YOU TO VISIT INSIDE BOTH FOR YOU TO PUCHASE AND TO SHOW OFF THERE STOCK, BARTER WITH THE JEWELLERY SHOPS AND YOU WILL GET A BARGAIN.
THE HOTEL, well a little tired maybe but what a place, all the front desk staff and customer service are all friendly and happy to be of service, FROM THE MOMENT YOU WALK INTO RECEPTION THE ATMOSPHERE HITS YOU, LOOK UP TO THE CEILING TO SEE THE DETAIL, LOOK OUT TO SEA TO KNOW AND FEEL HOW CLOSE YOU ARE TO THE BEACH, LOOK DOWN THE VERANDA AND SEE HOW CLEAN THE TILED FLOOR IS, LOOK OUT OVER THE GARDEN TO SEE THE CARE TAKEN AND HOW TIDY IT IS, THE ROOMS ARE VERY NICELY DECORATED, CLEAN, TIDY,all sea facing with good a/c and clean bathrooms and nice furniture.
THE FOOD, all freshly prepared and enough of it, all tasty and well presented and reasonably priced for a hotel, IF YOU REQUIRE SOMETHING A LITTLE SPECIAL THEN JUST ASK, the staff will always try to help.
THE BEACH SHACKS, are they safe to eat at? where shall we start, to be fair you will soon discover your own favoutites but to list some of them, THE FULL MOON, WAVES, DOMS SEA CUISINE, JOHNY SEAGULLS, JOETS, CLOUDIS, ALL BANG ON, TOP CHOICES, FRESH SEA FOOD, LOW PRICES, FRIENDLY AND CLEAN,we used them all again and again and not once did we have a tummy problems, THESE PLACES ARE TOTALLY PROFESSIONAL WHEN IT COMES TO FOOD QUALITY, THEY CAN'T AFFORD NOT TO BE, THEY WANT YOU TO COME BACK AND RECOMMEND THEM. I MAY HAVE MISSED A FEW, BUT YOU WILL FIND THEM OUT.
TO SUMMERSIZE, The hotel was, once a top 5* establishment catering for the largest of holiday companies that seem to have milked the profits from it and therefore slowed down its progress. It has got all you will need and more, quite a lot of the staff have been there for many years and their presence makes it a special place to be, because they are very PROUD and should be. As we have said it is very addictive with many guests returning time and time again, that said there will always be some people you can't please. This was our 4th visit to Goa and our second time at Bogmallo, other hotels have their own charm I suppose but all in all this one ticks all the boxes, not too far out to visit places like Vasco with its amazing markets a bus ride away or Margoa, a short taxi ride, or even old Goa. We stayed for 3 weeks this time which included xmas and it was brilliant, the hotel did really well with the decor, and so did all of the village, carol singers on xmas eve at most resturants and all visiting the surrounding houses too. Every one has a smile, not just to get your money, they are genuinley pleased to see and meet you.
You are in India, you are going to see a few things you're not used too, like a couple of dogs on the beach, don't bother them and they will not bother you, litter and plastic bottles strewn around, but ask youself, what would you do if no one collected your rubbish, they don't have refuse collection. Go have a great time and take little notice of the scare mongering bad reviews, Thanks for reading this and I hope it helps.
