Oceanic Hotel
Ranked #9 of 19 Hotels in Canacona
Reviewed February 14, 2008

Have just got back from our second visit, and it was, if anything, even better than the first this time last year. The hotel is a haven of peace and tranquillity in a beautiful setting just a short tuk tuk ride (or slightly longer walk if you're feeling energetic) from Palolem and Patnem beaches. This is about as far south as you can go in Goa, and much less package touristy than further north.
The hotel has 6 rooms - some standard, some deluxe and one in-between. It also has a smallish but very nice swimming pool, just about the only place with one in the area apart from the large 5* Intercontinental, so a definite added bonus.
The Oceanic is owned and run by an English couple, Les and Sheila, who look after everyone with care and attention, and the Indian staff are also very good. Breakfast in the small courtyard is a wonderful start to the day, and the food served all day is great. You'll definitely want to eat out at the many beach shacks as well, but if you've had a hard day and want to dine in, it's a great way to finish the day and stagger the short distance back to your room! Very good and reasonably priced wine too, and in the unlikely event that you can't finish the bottle (well ok, the second!), they'll stick it back in the fridge for the next time.
The only possible thing to watch out for is that there's no airconditioning just overhead fans (although Les is contemplating installing it at the expense of his carbon footprint!). This year was no problem as the evenings were fairly cool, but last year when the weather was hotter and more humid it took a few evenings to acclimatise.
All in all a fantastic place to stay and great value for money.

We spent 5 nights at Oceanic and would definitely recommend it. We booked a Suite which was absolute great. The room was clean and spacious with a balcony . Les and Sheila, the owner were really kind and we felt like in little paradise.

The Oceanic is the best accommodation in the area....The owners and staff are extremely friendly and welcoming. Nothing is too much trouble. They have a swimming pool (a real treat, as no other accommodation can offer this facility). The service is excellent and the food superb. The hotel is on 3 levels, offering lots of quiet stops to relax in. The gardens are beautifully tended and the whole hotel is exceptionally clean. The location is ideal, as it is out of town, therefore, peaceful and gives easy access to nearby beaches. The town is however only a short stroll away.
I would thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Goa.

Absolutely fantastic!! Definitely one of the best hotels I stayed in in India - by far the most welcoming hosts - can't recommend it enough.

Food was healthy and delicious, pool was a bonus, rooms very clean and comfortable - near both Palolem and Patnem beaches so perfectly located.

If I ever return to Goa I would most definitely stay at the Oceanic again.

Thanks Guys.
