“Lovely hotel.”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

We had 2 nights here in January. It is a nice old building with lovely gardens. The first night we had a room upstairs which was very plain, and only one lamp and bedside table (we both read!) and only a hand held shower, not very impressed, but it was very clean and there were some lovely fresh flowers. But the second night the manager offered us one of the better rooms downstairs that had an outside area with a lounge and hammock, this was lovely and would love to have stayed longer but they were booked out. The manager was very attentive and friendly as were all the staff, breakfast was great. Its an easy walk to the beach where there are lots of restaurants, we ate at the Calamari, food not very good, but view was lovely. It's also an easy walk to the main street for restaurants, shopping, and I had a good massage at a little place recommended by the manager!

Just stayed 5 days; superb value for money and pleasant staff.. spotlessly clean...
My second time in Goa and although a little out of Candolim; is just a RPS 250 (approx £3) taxi ride from town
If yiu take a boat trip to Anguna, they pick you up from bottom of road

The Bougainvillea fully deserves its awards, top ratings and its excellent reviews.

We have just returned from a lovely 3 week break in Goa staying at the Bougainvillea the entire time. We had a perfect stay and we have even booked to return again later in the year.

The Bougainvillea has just recently been awarded Travellers Choice 2013 Winner by Trip Advisor and this comes as no surprise. Lourenco and his team at Bougainvillea strive to achieve excellence, and they always do.

It is the people that “make” any hotel. We felt welcome and at home straightaway. Lourenco and his staff go the extra mile to ensure that customers are happy and they do this cheerfully. Nothing was too much trouble and they were always happy to assist even when very busy. So I would like to give a big thank you to Lourenco, Freddie, Augustine, Agnelo, Mario, and all the rest, who all helped to make our holiday the best we have had for a long time.

The rooms (suites actually) are very comfortable and well laid out. These are kept spotlessly clean and are very well equipped. The Bougainvillea rooms are decorated to a high standard and have nice touches added: for example fresh flowers in the room and a fridge well stocked with drinks at a reasonable prices - or you can fill it with your own purchases. The Bougainvillea has 24/7 security, hot water and air conditioning. Also the suites have a comfy king size bed and a great shower.

Breakfast is served in the garden restaurant. I would encourage you to try Freddie’s masala omelette and the fresh Goan bread straight from the oven – ummmmm yummy! The restaurant can also provide dinner in the evening if you pre-book – Freddie does a great fish curry as well as many other delicious dishes. When you want to go out the staff will be happy to arrange a taxi for you as they have several regular drivers on call.

The Bougainvillea is situated in a quiet area well away from the noise that is further down the main road. The gardens are lovely, well maintained and have a wide variety of plants, including bougainvillea, of course! You can have a peaceful nights sleep and wake up to the sound of Goa’s dawn chorus from many exotic birds. The beach is only a 5 minute walk away and the Bougainvillea is within walking distance of many excellent restaurants. Of note, Santa Lucia was our favourite, which specialises in Italian, Swiss and Goan cuisine at very reasonable prices.

We look forward to visiting again soon.

This was our first trip to Goa and what an amazing stay it was. It was by far the best service experience I have had in across any hotel class. We stayed here for 4 nights in the hibiscus suite and since the time we checked in the treatment was fantastic. I was short on cash and Lourenco took us to the nearest ATM in his car. He dropped us to a nearby restaurant for lunch and arranged for a drop back to the guest house after lunch. How sweet was that!
On the day of our anniversary we were pleasantly surprised to find a nice cake waiting for us in our room.
The staff is always so happy to help and the breakfast by Freddie was not just filling but also quite fulfilling to our taste buds.
The place is set along a quite street and is just 5 mins away from the beach! I am love with this property and would return every time I visit Goa!

I went for a holiday to Goa with 3 friends in October 2012. I chose the Bougainvillea guest house after reading the excellent reviews on Tripadvisor and it did not disappoint. The hotel is on a quiet stretch of the road, about 5 minutes walk from the beach. Lorenco and his staff were really pleasant. We took a suite which had 2 rooms, the bedroom and bathrooms were great, the front room had a little musty smell which is a problem due to the monsoon season in Goa. The hotel had decent breakfast options. Overall a great stay, made even better by the staff!

Room Tip: Rooms on the first floor are better, especially during monsoon.

I was looking forward to the Goa portion of our travels. We stayed here for four nights. It was actually the longest stay of our travels in India, although there were a lot of guests staying here for weeks at a time. It is on a quiet road about a 10-15 minute walk to the beach. There are also a lot of restaurants on the road to town within a 10-minute-plus walk. The rooms are totally clean. In general it is quite quiet. The wifi is acceptable but really only works well if you hang out in the entry area and stay right next to the router. Breakfast is great, and the staff is friendly and nice. We had them send a driver to pick us up at the train station, and it was nice to have someone waiting there. Peter was our driver for several days. He took us to a beach in Southern Goa, and then to several beaches north of us on another afternoon. He was helpful, and a good driver, but I will say that his fees were probably more than a regular local cab would cost. In the end, we decided he was worth it.
