What a wonderful place this is!!
We stayed at Marinha Dourada for the first time, but will definatly be returning. It's worth at least 2 more stars by its name, as the rooms, gardens, pools and grounds are fabulous.
Our room was spotless and made up daily by very polite and friendly staff, the bedding and towels are changed each 2 days, and mini bar is restocked for you daily.
Showers had very hot water most of the time, and power failures, although frequent, only usually lasted a few mins. (Candle and matches provided in rooms for when these happen).
We stayed in the annexe, and our room overlooked the lake, and jungle beyond - Beautiful!
Both pools good sized, with showers beside and plenty of sunbeds, with free towels from the health club/spa.
Restaurant, Bar and Reception staff were delightful, and helped at every oppurtuity.
Taxis available 24/7 from gate, dedicated firm, cheap and reliable.
We took a taxi to the beach each day for 100 rupees (just over £1), as we were too chilled out and lazy to be doing walking!
Hotel situated in fab country side with loads of local wildlife to see. We saw an elephant being walked through the busy streets every day, and Cows have free roaming rights, and are curious and beautiful, though they do slow the traffic sometimes.
On Saturday nights, 2 markets compete for business within 10 min walk of thehotel, we went to Mackies market, opp MoJo pub, and found everything to be exceptioally good value for money - just like everything else in this wonderful country.
Food was amazing, and we had 2courses each, with beers, voddies, and waters for approx 8 to 10 quid between us.
Sea food is everywhere, and is as cheap as chips, and as fresh as you like.
Local restaurants we would recommend are All Spice, and AlFresco, both in Arpora, and East Meets West, and Over The Flames, both in Baga, near Titos Road.
Best shack on Baga Beach is Marine Beach Shack - food amazing, staff wonderful, can't recommend them enough!
Hope this has helped you when choosing your hols.
Where ever you end up, have a Brilliant Time!!
