We stayed in this hotel last November and are returning again this year. The hotel staff are really great and we had a lovely, relaxing holiday with friends. The atmosphere was just so easy going and happy it was impossible not to feel a home. The rooms are cleaned daily and fresh towels are always added, better still the air con is a god send. The food was top class, I recommend you try the makhani curry it`s worth the trip for that alone, yummy :) The pools are also kept pristine and the pool boy is there every morning like clockwork. Palmarinha is a short tuck tuck ride away from the beach which we think is fantastic as there is so much peace to be had by not staying in the heart of Calangute.

We have stayed for 5 nights at the Palmarinha and the stay was very good.

In the front office Camilo, Sneha, Praveen and Savio service was good and Camilo helped us with lot of advise and information about the nearby places. Camilo service was excellent.

In the restaurant Diego was very friendly and helpfull, he recommended us the food according to our taste. Other staff like Ithorian, Suryakanth, Francisco, Sagar and Akshay service was also good. Food was good and tasty, prices were average compared to other resorts we visited before and we enjoyed the outside tables.

Jay, the housekeeping guy, was doing excellent job maintaining the room very clean and tidy.

About the room, it was big and it was having nice view of the pool. The balcony was worth.

We did not try many of the amenities, only the Business center and it was good, with books to pass time.

For sure we will recommend this resort and hope to experience again.

We've stayed at the Palmarinha twice, having prior to that stayed in 2* hotels in the heart of Calangute.
The little extra that we paid was well spent as air conditioning was inclusive and the breakfast buffet was excellent, consisting of a wide variety of continental and Indian items, much more appetising than the tea and toast that had been the extent of the breakfast offered in other Calangute hotels

The pools were both clean and there was always sunbeds in both full sun and shade.
The rooms were clean and the beds comfortable though I had hoped that we might get a bigger room as we were sharing it with my 17 year old daughter for whom I had paid full price. Instead a fold up bed was hauled into the room which didn't leave much space for moving around.

The hotel is about 15-20mins walk into Calangute centre and a lovely relaxing walk it is too where all manner of wild life can be spotted along the way. We saw many kingfishers, lizards, cattle egrets and red kites and at night had frequent sightings of fruit bats. Very rarely do any vehicles go down this road and this walk for us was an advantage rather than a chore.
If you don't fancy the walk I imagine that It can work out quite expensive getting taxis to and fro a couple of times each day.
The staff are friendly and happy to offer information and advice.

The drinks are far more expensive than in the main resort and the food by most accounts is not of a good standard. There is however a charming restaurant right out of the main entrance then the first turning on the left. Keep well in to the hedges though as the traffic can be quite busy down there.
I've read recent reviews of the hotel standards slipping. I hope that this isn't the case as we were hoping to book again for December.

That's exactly how we describe our locale..away from the hustle and bustle. we are glad you enjoyed your stay with us. You have missed seeing the variety of birds at breakfast time , next time please get a pair of binoculars. We hope to see you again and definitely you will find it even better than your previous trip.
Thanks for choosing Palmarinha Resort
