“We had a great time here”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

Presa di Goa was upto our expectations & a little more in all respects. It is a well maintained, reasonably sized boutique resort with cottages & rooms of various sizes. You can choose one as per your requirement. As we were four of us in the family, we opted for Dahlia, which is a pool facing cottage with a double bed on ground floor & twin single beds on mezzanine floor, both with respective Acs. The house keeping was upto the mark. The toilets were neat & clean & very well maintained. The owner of the property, Mr. Edouard & everyone else in the staff was very courteous & hospitable. They arrange for a 2 or 4 wheeler as per your requirement. Transfer & pick up to & from Calangute or Candolim are complimentary before 6 in the evening. There's absolutely nothing more a traveller can wish for. We loved each & every moment we spend there & are looking forward to our next time with this resort.

Room Tip: Pool facing cottages

Please don't " oversell" Dhalia........everybody wants Dhalia.......each of our other rooms are nice and comfortable on their own....and better than Dhalia.....cozier, more antiks.....romantic Posterbeds and Bathtubs for Honeymooners..''softer mattrasses for somebody with a bad back.
Only the service is same for all.
Thank You for your helpful and descriptive comments.

I was lucky enough to spend three nights here as the venue for our college hostel buddies get together .
Mr. Edouard , the owner was really helpful and a man with a good sense of humour . He even enjoyed our inspired guitar sessions that went on late into the night. The food is very good and the service friendly and unobstrusive. The whole place is very well maintained and the rooms with their old portugese furniture and ambience is , well , quaint !
the pool is lovey, the jacuzzi wasnt working (grrr...!) , lovely lawn and flowering garden.
an ideal place for a quiet getaway but still close enough to all the action at Baga, Anjuna and Calangute.

We really enjoyed having You 16 ex- students for a " remake" at PRESA di GOA. Thank You for having chosen to stay with us. By the way, the Jaccuzzi works, but You need to request us to switch it on.........from Pool Fountain to Jaccuzzi........otherwise it's just a Fountain in a Baby Pool.
Hope to have You back soon....with Families.....

We stayed at the PRESA DI GOA in September 2012 for our college get together. Quite simply it was a inspired choice for our group of 16 people meeting together after many years for few days of chillout and relaxation.
EDOUARD and his team went beyond the call of duty to make our stay there most enjoyable & comfortable.
Secluded location yet close to bustling beaches of Baga & Calangute, great selection of food & drink and it really did feel like home and more than lives up to their strap line ' A country house beyond compare'

its a good place off the beaten path in goa for a family vacation. the place itself is a country house with a pool. games and books are available on request. the staff are courteous and prompt. Service is decent though the menu does not have many indian and tandoori items. rooms have been recently upgraded with modern lighting and bath facilities. while its a bit faraway for those who want to experience night life in goa, it is value for money for a family of 4.

This is a beautiful boutique hotel and a hidden gem behind large walls and a gate. I was blown away on entering. The garden is incredibly well maintained and there is a lovely clean pool and an additional water feature also. The main building was a lovely rich painted colour and my room was just wonderful. I loved the beautiful double doors that opened to a patio area and the bed and old style colonial furniture were just amazing. Everything was spotlessly clean. The food was absolutely excellent and I stayed three nights sampling various dishes. The ambience and tranquility was top class. The staff were wonderful, could not do enough for you regarding anything and the gentleman in charge was always there to greet his guests and have a chat with them which made it extremely homely. A fabulous place to stay.

Thank You,for Your encouraging comments on PRESA di Goa. I am always somewhat worried for our guests' full satisfaction during the Monsoon season, when the heavy rains and humidity tend to give us hard times in building maintenance, proper functionning of all facilities, such as generator and water pumps, which however are a must at all times for the guests' comfort. Your very nice comments are therefore a double incentive for us. Otherwise, however, the Monsoons create a marvelous ambiance , which I call the " romantic " season with all its beautiful greens and colours around our Country House.

A bit off the beaten track and away from the beach, this homely pretty place is a clean and good choice for a family stay. The room decor has quirky touches like a mini room/ loft with a bed etc.

They offer a complimentary drop and pick up to the nearby beaches.
The pools are clean and the place is comfortable.
The service is sweet natured and they organised a cake for our wedding anniversary

Concerns:
The breakfast options are limited for vegetarians.
The room lighting is definitely poor in the monsoon.
Bathroom needs overhaul- the tap is too close to the sink, the flush leaks, there is no option of bucket but the shower is too weak, saw a couple of small cockroaches in an otherwise clean place
TV reception clarity is only average- matters only if you plan to be watch TV in Goa! W ehad to stay in due to rains and it therefore bothered us.

Tip:
- Ask for the electric kettle and stock up on some snacks, if you are early risers, since breakfast service starts only by 8.15 am or so.
- The main bed in our room was really high so ask for a floor carpet/ rug, in case you are travelling with small kids

Away from my property, on vacation in France, I thank You for Your comprehensive comments on Your stay at PRESA di GOA.
I am somewhat disappointed to read that. you did not appreciate, among others, our partly overhauled bathroom with its new washbasin and watertab, which have recently been installed as a mock up for all future Bathromm renovations. Your,specific comments on this matter are therefore most appreciated , as they seem to deserve a sound review before going any further with more of the same.
Looking forward to welcoming You back at PRESA di GOA.
