Just back from another wonderful stay at the magnificent Bougainvillea Guest house. It is truly a fantastic place to stay and all the team Lourenco, Freddie, Angelo and all the staff made my 2 weeks there so magificent nothing is too much trouble for them - the food, the rooms, the gardens all so lovely. Of course I must mention the Mario who is the best driver in Goa. Thank you all for making the holiday special - looking forward to next time!

Just back after spending another holiday at Lourenco's beautiful guest house. I've been visiting Goa for 18 years and stayed in many types of accommodation but even the 5 stars can't beat Bougainvillea. If you are looking for peace and tranquility - this is the place for you. There's no pool just a beautiful garden, full of palm trees and flowers and all you can hear are the birds. There are only 8 rooms (all on-suite and all a/c) The rooms are huge and cleaned daily - spotlessly clean and fresh, white towels every day. Always fresh lillies in every room - it's these touches that make this place amazing. Also a fridge - filled with beer and soft drinks. Plenty of power cuts in Goa but this place has its own generator. The staff are fantastic - Freddie and the boys always have a smile on their faces - nothing is too much trouble. They cook a mean breakfast and if you give Freddie prior notice; he will cook a fantastic meal - you should've seen the size of the king prawns - like a baby's arm! It really was like going home - a great family atmosphere.

It's a great place for couples - and singles (you feel totally safe there).

Mario is Bougainvillea's designated taxi driver and what a great ambassador. Reliable, punctual and reasonably priced - he'll take you anywhere. A lovely, hunk of a man who could double as your minder, haha.

The Bougainvillea is situated at the far end of Candolim road - in Sinquerim. Far enough away from barking dogs and noise but near enough for the beach and shops

Beware if Lourenco pours the drinks - esp the 'one for the road' - he had to walk my friend and me to our rooms one night! He is a charming man and has very high standards for his guest house and quite rightly, is very proud of it. I'd advise you book early if you want to stay here.

Thanks again Lourenco, Freddie, Agnello and all the boys for yet another, fantastic holiday. See you all very soon. x (p.s. I'll put some pics on - a couple are of the penthouse roof terrace - fab!)

Room Tip: the huge penthouse for those special occasions - has a large living room, big, flat screen tv; huge...

I don't think I have ever stayed in such a calm , clean , welcoming , beautiful place ever.

Our van was waiting for us at the airport as requested. Lourenco and Freddy were there
to welcome us on arrival. The rooms were perfect, felt like home. The flower (yes, real!) was beautiful touch. Restroom was spotless.

Freddy's food - I got no words to describe how perfect it was. I read about the masala omelette in many reviews and thought to myself that it was foreigners hyping it up because they have not had a real masala omelette. Boy, was I so wrong. Its the best omelette I have ever had. I don't know what magic he does...but OMG its heavenly. The freshly baked bread, just awesome. The bacon strips and sausages mmmmmm - the best in a very long time. Last that i tasted such good bacon and sausages was at Nashville,TN. The pomfret fry, the prawn (cant remember the name) , The chicked curry , even the steamed rice tasted delicious ;). The highlight was the steak he cooked for me, medium rare (first time it was medium rare for sure) was just amazing and the red wine sauce with something was heavenly.

We did have food from a few other places, but nothing in comparison to what Freddy cook. Hats off to Freddy!!!

I really don't have anything more to write about their level of customer service, that what has already been described. One word - AWESOME!!

Waiting for my next trip , and all i would want to do is to have Freddy's food and sleep.

Our group is kinda PITA to satisfy, but this was just too good a place for anyone to be a pain.

We stayed in this guest house & loved this place. penthouse was just amazing with a big terrace, living room & big sized bedroom. You could see the light coming from lighthouse in the night standing in terrace. Its walk able from the beach. Can't comment more on the food as we were taking only breakfast there which was good. overall we loved this place & will be back again if touring to North Goa.

My husband and I arrived at Bourgainvillea tired from our long journey. We were greeted by the team on arrival after our collection from the airport my the wonderful Mario. As we arrived late we ate a wonderful fish supper cooked by Freddie and after an evening stroll to stretch our legs after our long flight settled into our beautiful room. Very large with a sitting room and bedroom. We only used the bedroom as it was so big and had a beautiful balcony surrounded by flowers. I must say this is the best holiday accommodation we have ever stayed in. Beautifully clean, very spacious, fresh towels and flowers; wonderful! One of my favourite times when I am on holiday is breakfast time and we couldn't have asked for better. Fresh fruit salad, lovely warm bread and a large selection of every breakfast item you can think of. The whole team were on hand all day for anything we needed. We were looked after impeccably by everyone with such care and attention. This is unique hospitality at its' best and I really hope we are fortunate enough to return. Thank you Lourenco, Freddie, Mario and all the boys. We look forward to seeing you all again sometime and we wish you all the best. Maria & Jon x

Room Tip: We stayed in the Hibiscus Suite which was beautiful, however all the the rooms are a very high stand...

Booked this through reading the previous reviews on trip advisor. As we usually stay in Baga at Colonia Santa Maria.q But much preferred our stay here at Bougainvillea.Everything everybody has all ready said is true. It was just perfect. Room was good size very clean and had the added little touches of fresh flowers. In the bedroom you had a locked drawer in the wardrobe with 2 added locked doors which I thought was a good idea. Felt our things were kept safe . Then there was security on the door in the evening so you felt secure at all times. The bedding And towels were spotless ,bathroom was good size always hot water. Breakfast was really good plenty of choice and very pleasant sitting in the garden. Lourenco and his staff couldn't do enough for you thought the stay. Used Mario the taxi driver who was lovely and felt safe with him and his driving.
It was just a short walk through a residential street to the beach road. Would recommend to walk round the fort . And the other side of the fort and lighthouse.
Visited some lovely restaurants Victors ( have to pre book and pre order food as it's brought in fresh for that evening and there are only 4 tables).
We ate at the Stone house which is near to the guest house as is the Italian Tuscany Gardens both were good. We had meals at Angaara which we found ourselves , and Inferno's both on Candolim main beach road. Mario recomennded Soumyen's Kitchen. Chef has worked on cruise ships and comes out to chat with you at the end of the evening. Excellent. We went to Baga as we usually stay there and Jamie's was as good as ever. East meets west has moved its right down the road by the river, was over priced and wouldn't go back. Bon appetite which was local to guest house dissappointing starters and mains all came out together. Susie Lobo's at Calangute was like sitting in a cattle shed in a cattle market. We were recomended to the Fishermans Grove but we went to the wrong one. One is next to the Highland apartments but we went to the wrong one further up the road, plastic table tables and chairs was fantastic. We did our usually trip to the Greek restaurant.very busy and loud. Food wasn't hot. Wouldn't rush back.
We booked the overnight trip to Palolem South Goa with John's boat tours. Staying in a beach hut. Information not exactly correct as you don't get a front facing hut looking at the sea you get one set back. Taxi driver was mental overtaking 3 cars at a time very dangerous. Did not feel safe.
Loved staying at this guest house staff couldn't do enough for you would recommend and will stay again. Loved every moment. Thank you for a fantastic holiday everything you did and recommendations . Thank you to everyone at Bougainvillea.
