“Basic but good value”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2011

We have just come back from staying at Per Avel for nine days and really feel that the comments on this hotel need to be put into some perspective.

This not Benidorm, India still has a lot of poverty and even in the road of this hotel the locals collect water from wells. India has very good quality accommodation at a price. Per Avel is at the lower end of guest house type accommodation but is priced accordingly, we paid about £57 for nine days. The accommodation is modest, and similar to basic accommodation I have previously stayed in on the Greek Islands and in Turkey. The garden is pretty and whilst the room was basic the shower was good. The breakfast of toast and coffee is usually the norm at guest house accommodation in Goa, with juice etc extra. However we do agree that this is a bit bland after a few days and we were paying for extras such as poached eggs. With regard to mosquito repellents in rooms, Goa is in an area where malaria is a risk so any visitors should travel prepared for mosquitoes. Yes, there is a charge for the safe but this is only 40p a day!!

In summary, this is basic accommodation that is priced accordingly. For a couple who require somewhere near the beach and the restaurants and who are not looking for luxury then Per Avel is a good option.

The hotel is situated in a quiet area of Candolim, the staff are quite friendly. the rooms are typical of Goa and no frills very basic, (although the most basic I have stayed in all places i have been in India) when we arrived at around midnight the whole reception was locked up and boarded up, we had to get people out of bed to get our key to our room, if this had been our first visit to India i imagine it would have been quite scary. was just a little belwildered why the reception would close given they were expecting quests?? this hotel is OK, however there is far better than this out there and cheaper,
the biggest let down by far was the owner, she was incredibly miserable and charged extra for EVERYTHING....we had a problem with our safety deposit box, it wouldnt open with all of our money inside, the young staff members tried to help us, but she was the only one with the overide code, she wasnt at the hotel during this time and showed up 3 days later... very frustrating.....

My daughter and her boyfriend on their first trip to beautiful Goa had the total misfortune to stay at this 'hotel' On arrival at 7am they were told that they couldn't check-in until 12pm. No problem, however, it was after 1pm when their room was made available to them.
If you could call it a room. There was nowhere to put anythin apart from a 'dingy' wardrobe. The sheets on the bed may have been 'clean'but were stained and the towels were awful. We use better towels to dry our dog.
The 'shower' was but a trickle of cold water and when told this the owner promised it would be sorted. This was not the case, The folling day, nothing had been done and my daughter's boyfriend was given an electric element to heat a bucket of water. The owner promised it would be fixed the next day or she would allocate them a different room. That never materialised and luckily myself and my husband were also in Candolim and they were able to shower at our hotel. Needless to say, we also found them a better place to stay but one wonders what would have happened if we hadn't been ther to help them out.
This place out to be avoided at all cost. The owner is not interested in the comfort of her guests and all tour operators should under no circumstances send their clients to what can only be described as the worst accommodation imaginable.

Their single bed room is so small that even a rat would find it suffocating. There is hardly any room to move. Safe Deposit box is 30 Rs/Day. Hotel has lots of mosquitoes hence when I requested for mosquito repellent they told that they would charge for it !! Infact they charge u for everything. I stayed just because I had no other option. Will definitely not recommend. Have uploaded their single bed room pic.
