“Isolated apartments”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

This is not a resort, it is a complex of five or six apartments with a pool. The apartment itself is quite large with a functional kitchen but the pool is fairly small. Every morning, a cook comes into the kitchen and makes breakfast but every morning we had to ask a cleaner to scoop out the dead bugs and frogs from the pool. The complex is 10 minutes walk from the beach and 10 minutes walk to the main road --but at night it is dark and there is a pack of dogs you need to walk by. The selection of restaurants both on the road and on the beach is limited. We stayed three nights and only saw the owner as we were leaving on the third day.

This is in a remote place in south goa. excellent surroundings but the only person that runs the show is Mr Desilva - The owner of the property. Apart from him there the watch man who is rude. The Cook is even pathetic.I was suffering from fever and had to get some tablets but there was no one to help ,the owner was not lifting the phone and the watch man was rude and was not ready to help. After a long time owner picked up the phone and came for help.

As far as the surroundings are concerned, its a remote place and pretty quite. This is a duplex house best for large family get together .

The place is perfect for a quiet holiday with friends or family. We were a group of 8 friends and renting 2 cottages with 2 bedrooms each was perfect for us. The place provides good breakfast which the chef prepares in your own kitchen on demand. The villa is located near a clean and quiet beach.
The host is friendly and tries to check on the guests to ensure they are comfortable. However, the other staff is a bit rough. We had to request the staff half a dozen times to clean the rooms.

The few drawbacks about the location however are:
1. Connectivity: it is not possible to hail a taxi or auto. So your movement is a bit limited and you need to plan any trips. The area has a strong taxi union so a cab from outside the area can't provide service to the residents here. Also, prices for taxis can be quite steep. E.g. we paid INR600 to go to Kolva beach located 4km from the resort
2. Food options: Martin's corner is nearby and is a popular joint for food and dance. However, there aren't any other options in the area that you can walk to (Fishka, Alila Diwa etc. are a bit of a walk)

we booked via internet. As we arrived we were very exited that we got our own villa :) 2 bedrooms, one livingroom, kitchen, 2 bathrooms, extra toilette. All very clean and nice interior.
And you have your own cook who cooks you your breakfast as you would like to have it.
5 min walk to the beach. Nice place to stay.

If you are a person who loves space and privacy, A's Holiday offers you your own villa with a well equipped kitchen opening out to the child friendly swimming pool. A chef coming in to cook you breakfast. A private space tucked away in a corner of South Goa yet with easy access to some good restaurants like Martins Corner and Fish Ka. A mere two minute walk and you find yourself at Sunset beach. Friendly staff and owner. What more can you ask for?! Washing machine with even washing powder is provided for. So you can pack light. The odd laundry basket may be the only thing we missed.

We have just spent ten wonderful days at the A's and I can totally recommend it to anyone looking for peace and quiet, fantastic beach, quality accommodation, and a safe , friendly atmosphere!! A's consist of large two bedroom well kitted out villas, communal swimming pool and five minute walk from the beach !great restaurants in the town and superb value for money! Aggie who owns and manages the A's is very friendly and approachable and nothing is too much trouble ! My children loved the chef who cooked them breakfast every morning! We will definitely be going back!!
