“what a great place!”
Reviewed November 29, 2011

My wife and I stayed here for 5 nights, and loved the place. The rooms are big, very well decorated (new furniture, flat screen TV's etc..) and everything is immculate. The price for a room is also very good value for money...and best of all the couple who run the place cannot do enought to help. They gave us lifts into town, hired mopeds for us, gave us information on where to go and were just generally all round nice people. Would def come back again.

Yes... Outstanding is the only word that I can think of when I have to describe my experience in Bougainvillea.

I have been to Goa quite a few times, and it had been my experience that during this time of the year, although the prices are on the lower side, the rooms in hotels are almost always a little moldy and have that typical odour. I had almost given up the idea that I would ever get a place which would be affordable and yet clean.

But at Bougainvillea, I was in for a huge surprise. I had reserved a room after reading reviews at tripadvisor, and somewhere the cynic in me did not want to believe the reviews. And I had to take up the challenge and see the place for myself. But hats off to the team at Bougainvillea. All my fears, apprehensions, reservations proved to be futile. Mr Lourenco, Ms. Anne and Mr Freddie were the best hosts one can get. They did their best in making our stay a wonderful experience.

The rooms were clean and the service impeccable.

I would recomment this place to everybody. Dont bother yourself with the Tajs or Leelas. Head to Bougainvillea and have the best Goan vacation.

Room Tip: Try to get the one on the lower floor, which has a semi private garden and hammock.

We have just returned from 2 weeks holiday at the Bougainvillea Guess House, we have had a fantaic Holiday Lourence and Annie made is very welcome and did everything they could to make our holiday special, nothing was to much trouble ,when we arrived Lourenco changed our room so we could check in at 9.30 and fresh coffee was provided for two very weary travellers. The Guest house is very clean with fresh flowers in the rooms the bathroooms are the best I have seem in Goa. The breakfast was good with a range of choices and a friendly smile to greet you. Lorenco would often run us in to Candolim if he saw us leaving the Guest House. This is over and above whet you would normally expect, but then this applies to most thing at the guest houst, it exceeds all expectations. Thank you to Laurenco, Annie and all the staff see you next year.

Its all been said so many times, and its all true....this place is PERFECT! After a very tiring tour of Rajahstan and our flight south to Goa, we were immediately welcomed almost like a family member into this beautiful house, and felt as if we had known Lourenco, Annie, Freddie and the rest of the staff for years. The rooms are so spacious, comfortable, cool and clean, (Where else would you EVER get fresh flowers regularly) Nothing is too much trouble for Lourenco and the staff, breakfast is delicious, dinner is superb, I could go on and on, there is nothing negative to say. Go found out for yourself, you will not be disappointed, but DONT book the penthouse for next November....its MINE!

Room Tip: We had the penthouse, which was a sitting room, large bedroom, large bathroom, and a fabulous priv...

This is a very nice place to stay in Goa, it is very clean, the owner is professional, yet has personal touch. You are always welcome very pleasantly.
We stayed with family in Nov, and had an excellent experience with Lourenco's hospitality. He made sure our stay was comfortable, got us to a nice restaurant called Santa Lucia, where we got very authentic Goan food.
Rooms are clean, comfortable. The breakfast is very basic, but very well served. We did not not expect anything better than this. The lunch and dinner is available in nearby restaurants, and Lourenco also helps for to and fro travel between restaurant and guest house.

The location is very close to beach, but be careful if you decide to walk too late in the night, better to call Lourenco for pickup, he will happily help if he is around. You can also rent a 2 wheeler to avoid walking in late night. There is no safety issue, but we are not used to walk in the night in an unkown place.

Room Tip: Select any room, all of them are good. The first floor will have a little balcony, and ground floor...

I booked this hotel after seeing the great reviews. I was a little worried that it all sounded a bit to good to be true especially when I saw the price.
Lourenco, Annie and the rest of the staff were perfect hosts and really made us feel at home. We were made to feel that nothing was too much trouble and always greeted by a welcoming smile. When we walked in following our long journey from the UK we were immediately shown to our room with fresh flowers and formalities left till we had some rest. The restaurant served a lovely breakfast. The facilities in the room were great, western bathroom, clean fresh bed linen and great air conditioning. Our room opened out onto a lovely secluded garden area with banana tree's, flowering plants and chipmunks playing. The location of the hotel was great for us as only A short walk to the beach and town. Lourenco was always on hand and on several occasions even dropped us off to the beach / town. When leaving we were really sad to go. I would definitely recommend this hotel to friends and family and will definitely book again next time we visit.

Room Tip: The yellow rooms down stairs has a lovely garden area with a hammock and was A perfect place to have...

we just had our breakfast and our weeding dinner in the yard of this special guest room but it was enough to know that this place is number one, Lorenzo and his wife helped us enough to organize our small wedding party and also Lorenzo is a professional photographer.
