“Beautiful location, but not perfect”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

First of all we found the accommodation online and booked in, we thought it was excellent value for money and a great place for some R&R during a hectic schedule travelling around India.

We arrived in the middle of the night as our train was delayed by around 5 hours, we did alert the hotel but it was all locked up, had it not been for the security guard spotting us we would have been stranded until the morning. He let us into a lodge after a discussion with someone else, they had no record of our booking so it was a bit of a hassle at 3am.

Not wanting this to deter us we forgot about this episode and discarded it has typical 'Indian service' when we woke up we were really happy with the location, right on a quiet and clean beach. We did however soon realise it was the end of the season in Agonda and there was only a couple of small lodgings and one restaurant open, again not so much of an issue for us as we were just after a quiet few days.

The accommodation is basically just a large garden shed with a mattress and a fan in it, it contains heat easily so it can be extremely hot especially as it's 38 outside most days in May. It took 3 days for any of the staff to acknowledge us staying there aside from ordering drinks form the bar.

We had a couple of issues with other guests during our stay, there was a large party of Indian men staying at the resort and they were the sole focus of the accommodation (understandably.) However they left an incredible amount of mess, bottles and litter everywhere they went and with the high winds it spread all around the small accommodation area, there was no attempt to clear it by the staff for over 24 hours and it really deterred us from staying around there during the day and night. One particular incident they had left lots of litter on the beach area and it was so bad we couldn't even stay around that area even though no one was there is was still disgusting, we had cleared some litter up ourselves but had no where to put it (no bins anywhere)

Once these guests left it was a much more pleasant place to stay without getting too hung up on that, we could enjoy the paradisaical beach and sunsets, on Sundays there is a great buzz around the beach as many people use the bottom end of it to relax with friends and family.

Having had our faith restored we were only to have it tarnished again as we were leaving, the security guard had gotten drunk overnight and was hassling the staff and more so the guests. He blurted our sexist and racist remarks and begged us for tips continually until we left, uttering 'this is bad, I guarded you' we may have thought twice had he not disgraced himself. There was little attempt to make him go away and even when he did he returned a couple of minutes later to continue. He accused another guest of stealing something (unknown object) which nearly turned into a heated situation.

We really enjoyed staying here aside from the above issues and would return, I think if you are a foreign tourist the staff are not as helpful, but if you;re happy looking after yourself then you will be fine. We moved on to Palolem for 4 more days and had a great time there too and managed to leave about 2 days before the rains started, good timing! The accommodation at Tina Beach Resort is excellent value for the location you get, but if you're planning to go in April-June, hire a scooter to get around to nearby towns to entertain yourself.

Room Tip: Ask for a lodge further away from the sea, the bar is near a clutch of cabins nearer to the sea, des...

We stayed at Tina's beach resort in march 2013 for 2 weeks.It was so lovely and the beach is so tranquil and kept very clean of rubbish. It's just like having your own private beach. We stayed in the deluxe beach cottage had a fantastic view of the beach and it was great listening to the sea at night and opening the door in the morning to the waves.We spent a lot of time sitting on the balcony with a drink from the bar. (Thanks to Yassen for working so hard and looking after us, your service is excellent) the rooms are new so in good condition, beds comfortable, good size bathroom. (Could do with some hangers to hang clothes) But had to ask the cleaner to clean our room, change our bed and clean towels all the time. So only had it done 4 or 5 times in the 2weeks we was there. But it didn't spoil our time at Tina's. We have already booked to go back later in the year. So recommend to anyone if you like beach holidays!!!!!!

Room Tip: Book the deluxe sea facing rooms at the front. More expensive but worth it.

Excellent beach huts offering a perfect beach holiday. Ideally located on the beach as you see in the photograhs. The beach is safe for kids.

The resort staff are very friendly & supportive. They have a good restaurant & bar. The resort have good car parking facilities also. During night security is also arranged.

View of sea from the cottage is fabulous. They have provided cane chairs & teapoy at the cottage sit out. Sitting here during night is amazing.

The sea here is quite calm, beach is free of plastic waste & absolutely free from the large crowds you come across at Calangute & other popular beaches of Goa

I recommend tina beach to all travellers who are looking forward for a peaceful & refreshing holiday with family & children.

Excellent two week stay at Tina Beach Resort. The deluxe cottage had a nice view. The beach is awesome and the service I thought was phenomonal (thanks Yasen).

We found the food to be great as well. A number if reviews were quite negative but I cannot find a single fault with this accomodation. The bar is closed after 23:00 and there is no loud music.

The best vacation ever, would recommend it to anyone!!!!!!

Room Tip: Deluxe cottages are sweet, they all face the sea.

Huts are beautiful also we saw many huts before to booked there and it was a good choice. It has attached bathroom that is good experience you can take a shower while you are seeing the sky!
But BE CAREFULL with roof they are with a lot of infiltrations so check it out the roof is covered most if you are traveling close to moonzon period!
