“Guest House In Goa with a Heart.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013

While Lucia Beach guest House could never be described as luxurious this simple,no frills guest house has a big heart courtesy of its owners Joseph and Lucia assisted by their son Lawrence.The six rooms are made up of 4 beach facing and 2 inland rooms some of which have air conditioning. Others have a ceiling fan.My 3 week stay was in an first floor inland room which was entirely acceptable measured against the price paid.The couple are warm friendly Goan people who take a genuine interest in their Guests as stated in previous reviews.Holidaying alone it came as some comfort to be invited into Joseph and Lucias' home and treated as a member of the family during my stay.I would certainly holiday here again although in March not in a room without access to air conditioning as this became a challenge towards the end of my stay with the rising humidity levels.

Room Tip: Ask what rooms are available for preferred travel dates.Beach facing rooms are,unsurprisingly more p...

Just returned from a 2 week stay at Lucia Guesthouse.We felt privalaged to have stayed there no wonder its number 1 on trip advisor .Having stayed in many places all over this place was simply the best .Joesph and Lucia really are the most fantastic people and do everything to make your stay enjoyable and safe Lucia even gave us some cooking lessons so we could return home to try her marvellous recipes. In the morning Joesph would arrive with breakfast and make himself available to inform you and answer any question you may have regarding Goa this was so helpfull as it was our first time in Goa. Its positon is fantastic quiet with open space and trees in front,a feeling of space .We had everything we required in our room and the perfect hosts.Near by there are shops , bars,money exchange and plenty of places to eat all within 200 metres no need to rush into Candolim center.We really had a great time and look forward to return.Our only regret was having to leave 4 days before Josephs birthday i am sure all at Lucia guesthouse had a great time.So thankyou Joesph Lucia and Lawrence for making our first vist such a brilliant holiday

The location must be one of the best in northern Goa. Only 500 meters away from the markets and restaurants, and even shorter distance to the beach (I actually don't think you can find a closer location to the beach!)
Lucia's guesthouse is ran by Lucia and her husband. These warm-hearted people makes their only misson to satisfie their guest. And what they lack of interior in the rooms- they make it up by the enormous kind hospitality and service.

There's good value for money here, and you'll only pay half the price of what you have to pay for the same places closer to the city.
There is also included a delicious homemade breakfast on the morning. Lovely!

This place is ideal for backpackers and anybody else wanting value for money and a place to relax.

Sorry it taken us so long, but here goes, if your going to candolim than stay hear simple. I can say my husband an I have travelled the world and no were have we received such a warm welcome, from start to finish we were treat as one of the family by our host’s Joseph and Lucia along with their son Lawrence. It was a perfect place to relax you were away from the noise of the main road but yet a few minutes walk from the main resort the beach was just a short stroll in the opposite direction approx. 2 min, in either direction the food we received every morning was different and cooked fresh Lucia even cooked onion Baja and pakora, s for us on two evening as snacks as we sat on the balcony taking in evening drinking with Joseph we also were invited to join them for a family and meal which I must say was wonderful thank you all so much for making our first trip to Goa so special but by no means the last see you same time next year

Every day that I spent in Candolim, coming back from the beach, I always felt that I was coming back home. Very nice people to stay with - extremely cooperative and homely! Nice and clean rooms! They even give you a refrigerator at no extra cost!

Special thanks to Lucia - she even helped me with pepper seeds for my bad throat :-)

Very close to Candolim beach - you can walk down to the Calamari beach shack - it is located at a mere 2 minute walk from this guest house!!

Mr Fernandes also arranged for a bike for us (that made our trip easier)!!

All in all - we found a permanent location to stay whenever we go to Candolim, Goa!!

A big thanks to the Fernandes family!!

Room Tip: the room facing the beach!

yet again we stay at Lucia Beach Guest House,whilst in Goa

the warm welcome & comfort as perfect as it always has been,
some renivations had taken place since last visit, including new flooring & new bathroom tiles.
it remains an excellent place to stay, quiet & peaceful & a safe haven in Goa.
A pleasure to stay with the Fernandes family.

Room Tip: the rooms facing the beach are best, the view is superb

I travelled alone in India and booked Lucia after its amazing reviews on trip advisor - and wasnt disappointed.

I received a lovely welcome from Joseph, Lucia and Lawrence on arrival - after a long delayed flight.

My room was clean, spacious and Joseph even put some kingfishers in the fridge for me.

I received an amazing breakfast on my balcony every morning - which was included in the bargain price.

Candolim can be quite loud and brash in places but Lucia's was tucked away near the beach. The only thing you heard at night was the birds... and dogs sometimes.

I felt incredibly safe and welcome here :)
