Marina Bay Beach Resort

Reviewed January 31, 2010

A big thank you to Marina Bay Beach Resort for the wonderful holiday I had there last year . It has now become my favourite spot in the world. Peaceful,private and perfectly put together is how I would describe it .
Right from the ever alert house keeping staff to the warm and friendly disposition of the owners Philip and Izan, everyone was ineffably polite and ever ready to go above and beyond to make my stay enjoyable and comfortable.
Apart from being in a location where I was at close proximity to everything , I also noticed a travel agent around the corner, which came in handy when I decided to extended my stay and re route my travel.
My stay was not just comfortable and enjoyable but also memorable .
Great going Marina Bay Beach Resort !!!

We spent one month in Goa between Ocober 15 and November 15 and stayed in different parts of Goa. We stayed in Marina Bay Beach resort 8 days. We wish we could have stayed more. It was the best place we accomodated during this period. Very close to the beach, Very clean room and pool, very delicious and reasonable priced meals in the restourant, very helpful owners Mr and Mrs Corner and staff and a very reliable taxi driver Nilesh Kaloji. We spent an excellent holiday in Marina Bay Beach resort and we plan to spend more days next year. ESMA ITIR and HUSEYIN AY from Turkey, Istanbul

Very nice and clean place. Close to the main road and the beach, the location is quiet, safe and charming. The stuff is also very friendly. I will definitely come back ;-)

The hotel was set in a small village within walking distance to the beach. The small village roads added atmoshere to what was a charming and family-friendly holiday.

The hosts, Phillip and Izan, were careful to look after you without imposing themselves on you. All the guests seemed to find it a relaxing and friendly place and intermingled around the pool in the early evenings.

The buildings were new with clean and spacious rooms. Staff were relaxed, friendly and always helpful.

I intend to return in October this year for another two week stay because I felt it had a uniqueness to it that was a great relief to being in another "vanilla flavoured" resort.

There were plenty of sights to see in the vicinity and there were services (shops etc) within walking distance. Phillip and Izan (Izan in particular) could recommend great restuarants so you did not feel out on a limb.

I thought the bus ride to the capital was great fun (certainly a new expereince).

The outdoor restuarant at the resort was a good compromise to "going out".

The taxi service attached to the resort was terrific. It was essential to have use of it from the airport and to take advantage of all the sights in GOA.

The hotel is very nice--swimming pool, restaurant, large rooms. But beware of the prices you are being quote. We were quoted 4000 rupees for a double room, while our Indian friends who booked just after us were quoted 1800 rupees. And she still tried to make us pay 4000 even after we told her. They also offered us what appeared to be a complimentary airport pickup which ended up costing a lot more than a cab would have cost. Overall it ended up costing a lot more than other hotels that were closer to the beach would have cost.

We would like to clarify that the client booked her hotel room prior to the Bombay blast at the then prevailing room tariff.The tariff was subsequently reduced and she was charged the reduce rate.
She stayed in an Executive Room while her Indian Friends stayed in a Studio Room Which is much smaller and does not have a balcony.The tariff for both rooms cannot be the same.
The airport taxi pick up was never complementry and we have not said so.
The client was under no obligation to stay with us as she had not paid any advance booking.
Our other guest reviews speak for them
selves.

I named this after seeing the Kingfisher taking his daily couple of dips in the new swimming pool. He must have loved it, as we did, as he came back twice a day. Phillip and Izan made us at home from the minute we walked in. For the cleaning and bar staff nothing,but nothing, was too much trouble, they laughed with us and made sure that we wanted for nothing. There were long stay guests there who joined in our fun and directed us to the right places, making it far easier for us to get around. Two taxi's are available at all times and if you do not get back to the resort by a decent time they even come looking for you to ensure that you are safe. We were directed to a fantastic restaurant, the best I think in Goa, SOUMYEN's Kitchen., a ten minute walk. Try it. It is a ten minute walk also to the beach but once you get there you can forget all your troubles for the day as the Shack owners look after you. Loved it for the second year running and there will be more.
