Tarika's Sea Breeze
Ranked #3 of 6 Varca B&B and Inns
Reviewed March 23, 2013

Do not book this hotel expecting to see what you have seen on the web-site it's a different story the place is a 2 star hotel needs renovation. On the plus side the chef at the hotel is very good and it is a short walk to the beach, it is a shame this could be a very nice place if some money was spent on it and if the staff knew what they where doing room towels and cleaning of rooms was hit and miss.

Room Tip: Most of the rooms are in bad shape

it is a good resort which provides good hospitality, excellent food (I wanted to kiss the hands of the chef). Location is good (closer to varca beach) and is ideal for couples looking for peaceful stay. Rooms and good and provide decent sit outs space.

Room Tip: opt for rooms on the first floor

The marketing photos may have been true for the year the hotel was built, however they do tell nothing of the truth anymore. We were met by a green pool, one couldn't even see the bottom. Our room stank of mould, there was no shower curtain (although we asked for this three consecutive days), ants on the bathroom floor, dirty towels, and the staff was very unhelpful claiming that they did not know what a taxi fare would cost to nearby villages. The taxi stand outside the hotel was clearly an alliance between the hotel management and taxi drivers. The taxi drivers appeared threatening towards other taxi drivers, when we decided to call outside companies due to their much more reasonable prices.
The breakfast room was dirty, and the food terrible. Water for tea/coffee was taken from a water dispenser's "hot water" tap.
The airconditioning was terribly loud and frequent power cuts throughout the night caused it to not function properly.
The only positive thing about to hotel is it's very close proximity to Varca beach. Only a 1-2 minute walk.

I ended up here largely because it was on a certain website's (that starts with AG) push list. I'll never let them pick a hotel for me again.

This place was probably nice when it was first built. But oh, how bad it is now. The pool was green and looked like a koi pond, with bird droppings all around it. The grounds were not trimmed and maintained. Wi fi is only good if you sit in the reception. Housekeeping, soap, shampoo, etc. were hit and miss. Lights were burned out. Floors badly needed mopping.

The breakfast was awful, boiled potatoes, baked beans, stir fried chicken bits. No Indian food, which kind of makes sense because the clients here are overwhelmingly Russian. Evenings featured Russian dance videos and karaoke by the poolside/koi pond. There are no real services near this hotel and for transportation your choice is the local taxi mafia or renting your own moto. The beach, which is a very quiet section without any activity, is a long walk away. The staff is nice, but extremely laid back.

This time when i went to goa i stayed here... and believe me it was not the best of stays i have had! The rooms were small and smelly. In some of the rooms there was fungus on the sheets and pillows. Apart From the rooms facing the pool, rest had no view and were badly kept. The approach to the beach was also not great. There were localites partying on the road and were not too friendly, Which made it unsafe for us (we were a group of 6 girls and 2 guys ) all in all.. not a good place!

We enjoyed our stay there (February 2012). We had an pool view room with soothing views of the pool & garden, little desk, antique wardrobe. The bathroom was pretty tiny but cute and more than adequate. My parents had a garden room, which (as the name suggests) opened to an outside garden , I preferred ours. Breakfast was superb - wonderful place to start the day.. or end it with a wine. It's only a 2 minute walking distance to the beach and the beach was just amazing we all enjoyed with water sports & other activity which hotel provided.

Everything I'd hoped for. Quiet, rustic, beautiful room, friendly and helpful staff, and an amazing breakfast with fresh fruits. Location is perfect. The road up to the town is steep but not long, and the hotel is wonderfully secluded. There are cabs if you're unable to walk it.

The food was great too,, i feel every effort everyone there put forth not just for me but all i saw was work and on the move always cleaning helping .. hard to ask for something that is so often freely given , food is best i have ever had at a resort like this. Best group of service staffs. I had a great experience here at Disc fastidious atmosphere ( Rocking ) also live band with live kitchen.

I stayed here for one week between march and April and let me say, it was fantastic !! The room was very well organized with everything needed, kept very clean from the cleaners every day. The service given by the waiters was exceptionally and they were extremely friendly and spoke excellent English. best waiter ever. The animation team was also the friendliest people i have ever met, such a great group of people. The food was very nice and always had a choice of meals. Would recommend this to anybody!!

Food - for breakfast we had fresh omelets, which were prepared while you waited and were very tasty. Had no problems finding something to eat at the all inclusive buffet and always found it fresh and tasty

The reception staff were great and the lobby area was nice (with free wifi connection for all you social networking addicts), had a nice view of the pool, which you see the moment you arrive to check into the hotel (get some nice photos).

Room Tip: Pool view room are really very nice and with big balcony to hang out with your loved ones :)
