I stayed at the Villa Anjuna several years ago. Not a 5-star hotel, but very much on a par with a good middle-of-the-road North American motel. Clean. Very friendly staff. Central Anjuna location - a short walk to the beach. They have some air-conditioned rooms (slightly higher cost), but likely not needed November to March. Anjuna is not the large vacation center - that's Baga Beach - which is only 2-3 miles away by road, but a neat place nonetheless, with its own tourist market. (For the uninitiated, you always bargain. The starting price will be 3-10 times what you can get it for). It's amazing how much just walking away reduces the price.
1) As in most places in India, it is best to have the hotel arrange to have you picked up at the airport, which is some distance away (they will tell you the price).
2) Learn a few words of Hindi - it is widely spoken - even as far south as Goa.
3) You can rent a motor scooter really cheap (under $10 per day) at a nearby corner (not a shop- just a bunch of guys renting out scooters). A great way to get around. Insist on a helmet. Also, you will need gas just about right away, as they siphon excess gas from returned scooters.
4) Get a massage on the beach (ask for Ali). Have a beer at the beach and watch the sun go down. A visit to the huge nearby weekly market (I forget which day) is a must.
