Great environment and very relaxing. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. The food wasn't all that great. The rooms could use a little work, but for the price you really can't complain. The only problem we had was with the taxi's upfront. They created a huge ruckus and my husband almost came to physical blows with those people. Taxi's really overcharge over there and the guys upfront are super pricy. They will drive away any taxi's you bring in from town. So make sure you meet your taxi's a short ways away or in town - just as long as it's not directly in front of the resort. They really need to lose those guys up front if they want their customers to be happy. Overall- it was quiet and nice.

Room Tip: Make sure the air conditioning works.

The hotel is at a quiet (for India) location about 15min walk from Calangute centre and a 25min to the beach or a 5min taxi ride from the rank at the hotel.

The rooms are spacious but in need of updating. The A/C is good and most rooms have a balcony. If you have any issues with the room then the staff will try their best to accommodate your requirements.

The hotel has three pools including a children’s pool and I found them to be of high standard, clean and well maintained. In addition, there is a tailor, wellness centre and craft shop.

The restaurant served an adequate buffet breakfast of eggs to order; bread; cornflakes and three daily Indian options. Lunch, dinner and snack options were all authentic and very tasty.

The main asset of this hotel is the staff, who are polite, attentive, efficient and always ready and willing to help.

We stayed in the hotel in February for 2 weeks , the hotel is a little far out of calangute and required taxis too and from the beach, the rooms were basic but clean , our room was overlooking the back of the hotel and in all honesty that was probably the best place, breakfast was basic but ok , drinks were quiet expensive compared to the resort, the staff on the whole where very friendly and polite , in all it was ok .

The Resort is centrally located in Bardez, (North Goa) on the Calangute - Mapusa Road, 1 Km north of St. Alex Church Calangute & less than 2 Kms from Calangute Beach. This is the only advantage and importance that the hotel has. Rooms are not up to the mark and cleanliness is definitely an issue. Though I admit that I called up the room service ppl and promptly a bell boy was sent across for cleaning up the room. Even after making a reservation well in advance for two rooms we were first sent into the wrong class of rooms and later on pointing it out were provided rooms which were not in the same building which was a bit of a let down. The hotel has a tie up with a guy named Fernandes and he gives out bikes for hire....he charged the standard rate in Goa and also there is a cab guy who lives in the campus premise...so that should not be a problem as well. Complimentary breakfast did not have much options but was decent. As already mentioned its in a fantastic place, the proximity to good beaches in north Goa is very good, and if ur intention is to travel like a maniac and not sit in ur hotel room then it is an option worth considering. I do believe that a good hotel is a pre requisite for a great vacation and unfortunately this one doesn't qualify in that category.

Room Tip: I booked a suite, it had a balcony and a toilet as well as sitting room and sofas. The normal rooms...

As you enter Palmarinha, a very negative vibes begin to sink in, no cleanliness and as you stay you will realise that the attitude of the management is to drill $$ out from your pocket rather than providing a pleasant stay.

Greedy Hotel with no Service at all.

Hello All,

Stayed in Palmarihna in Feb 2013. I found it average in fact below average in some areas. The biggest disappointment was room and overall cleanliness of the resort. There was huge cigeratte bud and smoke smell in the room. They do not have non smoking rooms. We had to open the balcony door and main door for quite some time to let the smell go away. Wall paint was off in some places in the room wall. Blanket was literaly not clean and was not usable. Fortunatley we had our own blanket so we used that. Room furniture was also average including bed quality. You can easily spot dirt in the walking areas in the resort and in the area between buildings. Also given the standard of resort, restaurant was pretty expensive. Overall point is that the standard of resort is not matching with the high price of room and restaurant and the fact that resort is bit off located. I am ok to pay higher price but in return i would expect good value which I did not feel is there in the resort. Breakfast was also just decent though. However missing options were sausages, multiple indian options like poori subji, idli, dosas, cheese for omelate etc which I had in previous resort i stayed. Swimming pool water is kept clean but you can easily see some dirt between pool floor tiles.
Though room size was pretty big. Room balcony is also pretty big which is good thing to have. Restuarant sitting area was also decent.
