We were lucky enough to be visiting Panaji on the off-season so our backpacker's budget was able to stretch (just) to be able to enjoy what ended up being 5 nights of Roy's fabulous hospitality and tastefully renovated old villa. Everything about our stay was fabulous, from the comfortable room and bed, the nicely cooling aircon, flatscreen TV for the necessary down time watching some good old cable TV, fantastic wifi, lovely bathroom and toiletries replenished without our having to ask, and the wonderful spread laid out for breakfast. Roy is a fantastic host, a fountain of local knowledge, tips, pointers, and - crucial for gluttons such as ourselves - amazing food recommendations. He even took us for a drive to a local workingmen's club type affair, of which he helps govern, for a truly local specialty on our last night: toasted pav rolls stuffed with Goan sausage filling. So good we immediately retreated back around to pick up seconds. A fantastic end to our stay! Can say with all honesty this is one place we'd love to return to!!
