This place is great. It’s spotlessly clean, tranquil, and has the friendliest most helpful staff you could ever hope to find. The meals are fresh, delicious and are prepared and served with obvious care. But far and away the best thing about Bougainvillea is Lourenco-- from the very first moment you arrive to the very last moment before you leave he is friendly, attentive, warm and welcoming. It’s a rare thing in life to meet someone who is so gifted at what they do that you feel like they were born to do it. Lourenco it is definitely one of those people. I will definitely stay here again…

Bougainvillea is a nice guest house just 500 meters from the beach. The a/c room I had is spacious, has a good bed and a little bathroom. The free internet connection is good. Lourenco and his wife and staff are very friendly. Both breakfast and dinner is good. You can find other restaurants and some shops on walking distance.
It will take you about an hour by car to go to the airport.
The room charges are very competitive.

My wife and I visited Goa for our first time and how lucky we were to find Bougainvillegoa Guest House. This is the 'real deal' and run by Lourenco, Anne & Family. They could not have been more helpful and made our holiday something special and which has set the scene for our return to this fabulous destination. On our arrival into Goa, Laurenco arranged Mr Mario to pick us up and who became our private driver for the balance of our time there. On that score, we booked for 5 nights and stayed 9. This small hotel/guest house, with 8 rooms is just right and a short stroll to the beach or down to the village. With restaurants everywhere but difficult to not eat at Bougainville with Freddie looking after our every culinary wish. His breakfasts were incredible and his dinners specially prepared for us with fresh fish etc and cooked to absolute perfection.
We enjoyed afternoon drinks in the garden or in our suite and the best thing of all was the great value of everything with absolutely no worries about the usual rip off in some such exclusive hotels. Lourenco arranged many things for us including a lunch at Mama's Kitchen (fabulous) and another at our favourite Martin's Corner with Mr Mario looking after the transport. He also took us to local markets and the very interesting Spice Plantation. All in all, a wonderful experience and thank you Trip Advisor for putting us onto it, Laurenco for your fabulous hospitality and Freddie for feeding us like never before. We will be back! Oh, I forgot to thank Lourenco for booking us into the Taj Mahal Palace in Mumbai for the three nights after Bougainville and can say they truly had a hard act to follow!!

Room Tip: The penthouse is fabulous, but 301 is a great family room & 201 (ours) just right for a couple.

We stayed in bougainvillea in feb for 6 days and it was our first trip to Goa, and we were very skeptical since we were travelling with our 18 month old but it couldn't be better. When we reached, we were awestruck by the beauty of the place, the rooms (suites) were massive and spotless, with a huge fridge (loaded), beautiful french windows overlooking the garden. Lourenco, Annie, Freddie and his kitchen help went out of their way to sort things out for us.Breakfast, served in the garden was a delight, with huge palm trees and freddie's yummy masala omlette. Freddie would ensure we had a good time during breakfast ( they would entertain our son while we ate!). Lourenco and Annie were always smiling and always eager to help whenever we needed it . Perfect host, perfect location ( walking distance from the beach and about 15-20 min walk from town), clean, green and a home away from home. It was that personal attention and the warmth that would bring us back again. Thank you Lourenco, Annie and Freddie. Luv Nimisha, Gagan and little Zubaer

There's nothing negative I have to write about this guest house.
Very clean 1 Room set.
Genuine owner and smiles.
Very green surroundings.
Walking distance from beach.
Nice breakfast (though wasn't free! as informed over phone.)
Very decent pricing.
Full even during off-season so make sure that you make advance bookings.

Room Tip: Advance booking is a must. You cant be there and then expect a room. If possible ask for ground flo...

Personal attention is given on every guest,very very good maintained and excellent cleanliness.Lots to say but a small example bout the caring part , our check in time was 12 pm, but before our check in they have switched on the room ac , so that we get relaxed after a long journey.
