Bogmallo Beach Resort
Ranked #2 of 5 Hotels in Bogmalo
Reviewed June 18, 2013

We booked a package stay at the Bogmallo Resort in the last week of May, primarily as a treat for our parents who are both in their eighties and somewhat frail.

Our last visit to Goa had been quite some years ago and we did not really remember much about hotels or anything else. We chose the Bogmallo as it is right on the beach and my mother can not walk more than a very short distance without difficulty, so that factor alone eliminated most of the other places we were considering.

When I called reservations, I was given a local Mumbai contact - Mr Pierre Bonaud - who offered us a fairly decent rate on a 3 night package with all meals, airport transfers and a sightseeing trip and boat ride thrown in. Prices were not low but then most of the hotels we looked at had similar rates, so in that sense it was competitive.

We took a suite room for the parents and a deluxe next door for ourselves. The suite room was a bit of a rip off as the only difference was a teeny bit of extra space at the entrance. We found out later that the suites on other floors were substantially larger. In any event, both the rooms were spacious enough with balconies, very comfortable and aesthetically furnished with plenty of light coming in and a pleasing view of the sea.

The hotels rep was waiting for us at arrivals. It was a mere 15min from the airport, another plus point as the elders did not have to suffer a long drive.

Check in was smooth, with friendly staff right from the driver to the porter to the receptionists and everybody else. We were in time for the lunch buffet which was rather welcome.

All meals were served buffet style and I must admit that there was enough variety for the days we were there, without much repetion and a variety of local Goan and Indian cuisine. Vegetarians were also adequately catered to. In the evening, there was a live band in the restaurant. They were rather good! At breakfast time, they had freshly baked Goan Poee bread which when toasted and stuffed with butter, was out of this world!

Though there were plenty of good Goan restaurants on the Bogmallo beach itself, it would have been very difficult for my mother to walk there and it was for this reason that we availed of the package meals, which did not disappoint.

I must mention the exceptionally kind and warm service we received from Bella the Lobby Manager, and from Ianston at the restaurant. Everyone was very nice but these two were exceptional and deserve a special mention.

The hotel has a sprawling verandah facing the lawns, the pool and the sea. My parents enjoyed relaxing here. The weather was also very kind with sea breeze throughout the day and overcast skies making it very pleasant rather than hot and humid as it could well have been. It was easy to go for sunrise and sunset walks on the beach with direct access from the hotel itself.

A note about the sightseeing trip. This was by bus and my mother found it difficult to climb in and out the rather steep steps. Secondly, wherever the bus parked was a fair distance from the attraction, and a good distance from the jetty for the boat ride. My mother managed somehow with difficulty, but I strongly advise those who have difficulty in walking to avoid the trip by bus. It is better to hire a taxi for a half day trip as its much easier for taxis to park close to wherever you need to get to. Tourist taxis are readily available just outside the hotel gate at negotiable rates.

If my husband and I were to come to Goa again, I am not sure we would stay here again as the Bogmallo bay beach is small compared to the attractive long stretch of white Colva sands further south. But for this trip, it was just perfect.

Indians in general are respectful to elderly people. The staff here were a little extra caring and kind to my parents. I thank the staff of the Bogmallo from the bottom of my heart for giving my aged parents a truly wonderful holiday experience.

Highly recommended.

Room Tip: All rooms face the sea. Have a look at what is available before you choose.

I traveled to Goa in March. After much deliberation, we zeroed in on Bogmallo Beach Resort as it had great reviews on Tripadvisor. I have to say to we were not at all disappointed. The location of the hotel is to die for. The beach is just beautiful. The check-in was done efficiently. We stayed in the beach huts which were closer to the beach and about 300 mts from the main hotel, surrounded by palm trees and absolutely serene. The breakfast that was included in our package was lavish and delicious. The staff was friendly and efficient. All in all, it was a wonderful stay and I definitely hope to come back and stay at the resort again!!

While on a cruise, we had a day visit to this hotel, it didn't reflect well on the hotel or the cruise line. We paid $95 American per person, for what was suppose to be a 5 star all inclusive experience, I'm afraid it failed on all counts, 120 visitors (3 buses) from the ship, only 30 sun beds, food was less than satisfactory, and we still had to pay for drink. Did not reflect well on the hotel, one of the buses returned immediately to the ship. Advise the hotel management to think twice before repeating this.
Positive was a stunning sun set over the beach.

what more can i say. this is the one advantage that bogmallo beach resort can proudly boast of. every room in this hotel comes with a view and what a view it is. you literally feel as if you are in the middle of the ocean.

the room i lived in, had a balcony and was on one of the upper floors. this is big advantage as you get a bird's eye view of the entire stretch of bogmallo beach.

the room was nice, airy and big. the bed was soft and comfortable. and the room service was dependable. which says a lot in a state like goa where things move a lot slower. the breakfast is nothing to write home about as it comprises the usual fare. the lunch and dinner buffets are nicer as they include many of the local dishes in the menu. and boy is it yummy or what.

the guys who work at the hotel are really sweet and you can expect all your issues to be taken care off. that is if you have a problem in the first place.

the pool area is well kept and clean.

during our stay there we didn't see too many indians. it was full of people from the airlines and some european tourists.

Room Tip: Pick a room with a balcony - they are bit more expensive but the view is a lot better.

1st trip to Goa and don't regret staying here at all. I'm glad we chose to spend our trip in the south, its good to be able to get away from the more hectic places and just enjoy a great view which is what you will have at this hotel. We enjoyed the sound of crashing waves and a sunset every night from our balcony.The gorgeous tiled terrace with its sea view lined by palm trees has a faded glamour you won't forget, and the whole place has a relaxed charm that is preferable in my opinion to all that modern minimalism that doesn't really belong in India.

Its not a European or US style 5/4 star, but the accommodation is a great standard for India and should be acceptable to most western travelers. I wouldn't bother with the hotels spa facilities tho.

I would encourage anyone to try this hotel with two caveats 1) don't stay in the cottages - they looked pretty rough and I would have been sorry to pay any premium for them.

2) this is an easy location to get to from the airport after a long trip but its not the easiest place to get back out of for touring around as it isn't well connected by anything other than the hotels incredibly overpriced taxis which we made use of to get around - haggling with them although possible was a pain as they intend to operate on a fixed price basis and a traveling in them wasn't too much fun although the drivers are friendly enough.

There is a local bus to vasco da gamma but vasco itself is an industrial town and probably not top on the list of places to see. The bus can be pretty uncomfortable and hot especially in April when we went.

If you want to be able to travel more easily Majorda could be a better location just down the coast a little with a wonderful beach and a train station. That said we did manage to get south to Karnataka on the train which was a great experience. I would definitely go back to bogmallo because I liked the hotel so much - maybe for a couple of nights next time before moving on.

Room Tip: Like every one else says ask for top floors for a view - we stayed on the 4th it was perfect.

We stayed for three nights from 6th Apr 13. It was a great stay. The resort is just on the sea beach. Excellent sea view from the rooms. Rooms are very spacious with all the facilities. Buffet breakfast have variety of dishes. But Lunch and dinner lacks North Indian spicy dishes. On the whole the food was excellent. The staff is very helpful and polite. I must mention the names of Chef Nicolas and a lady captain in the Restaurant. They are real Gems in the resort. Very wonderful persons indeed. They don't know the word "NO", they always say Yes what so ever you ask for. Mr Pierre Bonnaud also requires commendation for his helpful attitude.
