    Stayed there for 2 days (around 22nd Dec 2013) with my wife.
    They gave us the AC room for day 1 and very promptly arranged for a non AC room for day 2 (since we had asked for it but it was not available on day 1).
    We had to leave on day 2 early morning so we kept our luggage at the reception (since we vacated the AC room) and they very nicely kept it in the non AC room without a single thing missing.
    Very very friendly staff, particularly Mr KISHORE who helped us a lot in understanding what all to do in goa, places to visit etc.
    location of the resort is very good, quiet area, barely meters from the beach.

    The rooms are not very clean and in ok shape but no pests or other issues so if you are looking for a luxurious kind of stay you might want to pass this place,

    Overall a nice and decent place to stay.. Rating -- 4.5 / 5

    Room Tip: rooms on top floor facing the pool have a better view

    I went der wid my Wife during Valentine's day 2014. I was not sure abt d hotel as d reviews were not much, but aftr rechng der I wud say - dis is much much better den a common budget hotels have.

    I took AC Superior room(on ground flor) which was v spacious, clean and with a quite big bathroom.
    U can ask dem for a pickup n drop til anywhr in goa-dey wl arrange it for U. Tappan is guy who takes care of tranaport wid a very reasonabl rate. I booked d cab from/to Thivim. I also booked d cab for Doodhsagar waterfalls wid a v reasonabl rate.

    As mentioned in earlier posts,hotel is walkabl distance to the main street where u can get many resturants,shopping malls n chemist etc.

    THE + point is Dona Julia is just 2mins walking distance to the beach.
    Crowed in the hotel n outside was decent.
    Arnd 5mins on Activa to main beaches like baga n calangute.

    Pool is good with clean water.

    Only sugestion for Room No 15 is pls add more brighter light in bathroom and put some "white" light in room.

    Thanks Clita & Cindrella for taking care of the guests & maintaining dis beautiful property.

    Just 2 min walk from the beach, around 200 meters. Good eating joints/restaurants nearby. More preferable for couples or group of friends. Nice swimming pool as well !! The owner and staffs are social at just the right level and they go to great length to make you feel at home. It’s a relaxing and quiet place – one where you really don’t mind spending an afternoon or two with a good book.

    Room Tip: Rooms at 1st Floor

    This place is a kilometer away from the main beach street. However, it is on the beach side. There is a market street next to it and it is also a happening place. You can walk to the beach in 2-3 minutes (around 200 to 300 meters). There are many interesting beachside hotes nearby which serve good food. Golden eye is one one buegdt, but still a very good restairent. A Riverie is another restaurent which serves good goan-continental food, but is little expensive.

    Rooms at the hotel (dona julia) are clean. We stayed in Delux AC rooms, whcih are only on the top floor. So, if there are people who can not climb up the stairs, then this is not the place.

    The hotel staff try to keep the rooms clean. However, they are rude sometimes. If you are using the bathroom when they come for cleaning, they go back without cleaning. If you request later to clean, they shout at you as if using the bathrooms was a mistake. The staff is also TOO PROFESSIONAL. Many times they do not smile even if you wish them on the face.

    The hotel has a restaurent attached. The restaurent staff are good. They also serve good breakfast. Only probelm is, they have make the restaurent more western and north indian and do not serve goan food. The north indian breads were also made up of maida, not wheat floor.

    The reason why you may want to stay this hotel is its great location. Even though it is far away from the amin beach street, you have good market place next to it. You can also walk along the bea beach for 10 minutes to reach main Calangute beach. You have all the water sport and dolphin shows happening at the the beach nearby (200mts). The hotel rooms being clean is also an advantage. This is a place if you you want a budget place in Calangute.

    Forgot to mention:
    The cots in the rooms have sharp edges. They manytime hurt children and even elders. I've attached the photo of it.

    Room Tip: Ask for pool-side rooms.

    Hi All, Rooms are neat but not clean, broken curtains, broken mosquito window screen, out dated Air conditioning (Window), no tube light at all in the room.. (funny). Off course there are other lights. Door locks are all broken, you will have to use latching system. No Hot water early morning as we will have to wait for the Sun to warm up the solar water heater panels. There is a small swimming pool... only usable after an hour once its cleaned in the morning as there will be lot of dust in it. There is a mini restaurant with not much of variety menu, but it looks neat and clean.

    Pros
    ------
    > Very Silent, away from noisy street.
    > Walk able distance to the beach.
    > lot of eateries around.
    > Small souvenir shops around.
