I went over to Goa with friends from college, and we were on a tight budget. This is one of the most inexpensive places to stay, yet within a stone's throw from Baga beach. Baga-Calangue, by the way is the most happening of the beaches at Goa. Villa Fatima is clean, bare basic accomodation. There is hot water in the rooms. You have resonably priced food, coffee etc. For those who can do with no-frills living, this is it. There is some parking space for your two-wheelers (that are easily available for hire just outside the hotel - Note: Bargain hard).
It is a simple, family run hotel. Don't expect room service. There were no phones/intercom in the rooms. If you need anything, its easier to just amble down to the canteen in the courtyard. Perhaps it helped that we were on the ground floor.
I had the right hand corner room ontthe ground floor which I shared with a friend (In fact we had four contiguous rooms on the right hand side on the ground floor, just behind the office for the nine of us: 4 guys and 5 girls). The rooms seem dark during the day, but are cool for a nap when you return after the a roasting in the sun. I wish they were more brightly lit at night. There are West facing balconies that bring you the sea breeze, the late afternoon sunlight, and you can dry your clothes there. (By the way, be prepared to do a lot of washing. Sea water creates a peculiar smell in your clothes and leaves spots. It is best to wash them and leave them to dry. There night be a laundry service...we did not use it.)
Being family run, the place feels homely. We enjoyed our stay definitely.
If I go to Goa again, I would like to stay at the same place. After all you don't go to Goa to stay indoors. Rather than splurging on luxury, you can always save your money for the 'Feni' - the local drink, or divine food which is served at the shacks on the beaches, for some extra shopping, or an extra mile or two on two wheels!

Getting there: By the way, if you are coming to Goa from Mumbai, don't take a filght. Take the Janshatabdi 5:30 am or the Mandovi Exp. 6:30 am...The Konkan railway presents amazing views on the way there. Don't miss it at any cost. Alight at Thivim (not Madgaon) for Baga beach and Villa Fatima.
When you come to Goa, you don't feel like going away!

We stayed at the Villa Fatima beach resort for a few days this December. Our experience was very bad. The proprietor was pretty rude to us. He did not seem to care about the service being provided at all.

The room was pretty sparse and badly kept. In fact, it seemed to badly need some repairs and some upkeep. The proprietor told us that the rooms are cleaned only once in three days. There were no cupboards to keep our stuff in. The water flowed out of the bathrooms whenever we took a bath. There were rat droppings in the room when we entered it for the first time and we saw several rats around the place.

One can barely make out the sea from the rooms that we were told have a sea view. The rooms are a good 15 minutes walk from the beach if one takes the road. If one uses the backyard, the beach can be reached in 10 minutes but the gates are closed pretty early in the night.

Management response:Responded January 18, 2006

I do not agree with a TripAdvisor Member from India on article dated January 6,2006

The main gate is open 24 hours. The back gate to the beach is closed at midnight.

The housekeeper cleans the rooms every alternative day or at the request of the guest.

There are no rats in our Hotel and we have never received any complaints from the guests.

The proprietors take care of the guests and listen to all the guests complaints.

We have guests from all over the world who enjoy their stay in our Resort. It is pitty that TripAdvisor Member from India did not enjoy the stay for the best reasons known to them.

I've been staying at this genuinely family run beach resort for well over a decade now an an annual basis and have no hesitation in saying that in respect of convenience of location, value for money, security, overall ambience, and assistance in the event of an emergency you will be hard pressed to find a better option.

The resort now has a swimming pool as a pleasant diversion and alternative to the close at hand beach. Here you can relax in the relative privacy of the pool area on comfortable sun beds.
