Palmarinha Resort & Suites

Friendly Staff, rooms clean, but first time travellers you must remember thus is India and you get what you pay for. The real downside is the amount of Russians and unfortunately they have no social skills or manners, and treat the Goan's like third class citizens, when they're the most wonderful people I've come across and can't do enough for you.
Enjoy Goa for what it is, a beautiful country and as yet undeveloped.
Will be coming again in Feb 2015. Xx

Not too far from the buzz of Calangute and Baga, this resort has been home for 10 days to 50 individuals attending the Inward Change Conference! The green verdant fields surrounding the resort provides a true experience of nature at its best. The food is delightfully Goan and Indian, the staff ever-willing to help and provide all necessary support. We look forward to going back again in July 2015!!

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the green rice fields!

The hotel is good for the fare it charges and also not very far from the beach. That was one of the reasons we chose this hotel over the others and of course because of the reviews of our fellow tripadvisor reviewers. The hotel rooms are decent and the best part is having a large balcony. The room and bathroom were clean but there was some issue with the AC which was not working for sometime. The staff was cooperative and nice. The restaurant was nice and served good complimentary breakfast. The swimming pool is really nice and we enjoyed the most there. We also enjoyed a game of Table Tennis which was not chargeable while game of pool was chargeable. Also there was a small library which I did not bother to look at as most of the time I was either asleep or partying! If you are looking for a budget hotel this is one of the best options.

I stayed for 4 nights at the Parmarihna Resort with my wife and daughter. The rooms are spacious and very clean. We asked for cleaning twice a day due to my little daughter and it was done as per our request. TV connection is a major problem in the resort and needs to be corrected. Its a little far from Calangute and travelling to the beach can be quite challenging and expensive if you do not have your own vehicle. The staff is quite friendly and helpful. The pool is good and almost all rooms face the pool. Breakfast options are limited but ok. Service to foreigners is a preference over Asians

All in all good value for money for the budget traveller

I had to visit this property as I got fooled by some timeshare program and had no choice but to stay here. Stayed here for 5 days in April end 14. Though I was eligible for a studio apartment, I stayed there for only one day, major problem was that TV was in living room with no AC.Mindless planning. So I downgraded to a standard room. Room size was OK. Major problems were dirty linen. Pillows filled with smell of sweat from earlier occupants. Just the change of cover did not help. Had to get all of them replaced. Bed sheets also had stains. Another major issue was dirty and smelly water in the bathroom. One staff told me this problem is there for last few months and they could not do anything about it. It's also 2.5-3 KM away from main beach. Front desk staff was helpful and courteous but other staff was arrogant and indifferent. Specially one guy managing pool was very rude. Manger was indifferent on complaining. Food is average in quality not worth it's price. Breakfast is very poor with very limited choices. Room amenities also poor, with no provision to make coffee/tea in the room, you have to order them every time. Overall experience is not pleasant and not worth visiting again. It's only meant for people who gets fooled by these timeshare programs and have no choice but to use them in this place.

Room Tip: Studio rooms are worthless,better take pool viewing rooms.

We spent the last week at this resort. We stayed at the suit which was very modern, clean and a balcony overlooking the country side. It was a very comfortable and refreshing stay and value for money. The restaurant preparations were definitely tasty and behavior of stuffs very courteous. Room service was fantastic and definitely better than the most.
Area of improvement is the maintenance of general facilities like swimming pool, where I could see people enjoying without suitable swimming suit. The reception staffs may not be looking as cheerful or positive as you expect them to be as the front face of the resort.

Its a very sad resort to be in, food is pathetic. Even the staff is very sad.
Breakfast is awful. Never stay there to have a good time.
There are many resorts/Hotel available in the same value with better services.
Who serves you egg curry in morning breakfast, a biryani costing 300 is not even a bowlful with pathetic preparation.

Room Tip: No value for money for money
