“Fantastic location and huts NOTHING ELSE!”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

After hearing and reading a lot about reviews about Romance beach huts, my wife, 2yr old son and me decided to check out this place. We called Abul and asked him if he had a place free for 2 nights or more and the answer was YES! it is available for at least 2 nights.
We happily came and checked in and yes they have the best location on Agonda beach.
the huts are well built and give you a feeling of being the only people staying there.
We had just about had a beautiful day after unloading our stuff when Sarah comes and tells us there has been a mistake and that the room is available only for tonight and we will have to vacate tomorrow.
This came as a big shocker to us as it dawned upon us that we again need start to pack up and find another place within 06 hours of our arrival.
This kind of put off our moods for quite some time as it was a dampener to our holiday.
Dear Abul and Sarah, the next time you commit yourself to something please do not turnaround and change your mind.
We ultimately felt like we were used as fillers for the one night when they had a room vacant.
Had this been informed to us we would have probably not stayed at all at this place.
We left the next day morning without much of a fuss as did not want to spoil the holiday mood any further.
The rating given is just for the location they have else it would have been worse.

Room Tip: all rooms are the same but choose another honest place instead

This is my second stay @ Romance Huts, last year we had been here at the same time and the peacefulness of the place made us to visit again.

We were 2 family with kids and we stayed from 1st May to 4th May. Now they are at the far end of Agonda Beach, the beach ends near a small hillock. The sea has created back waters which actually runs behind Romance Huts. So we have beach in front and a small backwater river behind the huts.

The Huts are simple and good. There is a hammock for relaxing, the beds are good, clean toilet and shower. This year they have only Premium huts which has 2 double beds wherein 4 adults can be accommodated. All Huts are beach facing :-). There is a small dining table in front of huts where we can have our food / drink or simply sit and gaze at the vast ocean. There are few stray dogs near the huts but they were like our body guards following us where ever we go, it was fun.

Agonda beach is defenitely the best beach in Goa with clean white sand. There is absolutely no crowd and it is almost a private beach. We had a blast at this place, just bath in the beach, cross the back waters and there are few rocks which will be perfect settings for Photos.

The best part is our host, Abul and Sarah, they ensure their guests are well taken care. They serve excellent home cooked food, Puris, Parathas, Biriyani, watermelon juice and the list goes on.... Their curd rice is unique and tasted good and we have got a new receipe....

This place is an excellent getaway where we can relax our mind in the peaceful surroundings, good food is served by our host and are taken care with utmost care.

WE WILL COME BACK NEXT YEAR

We were a group of 6 who visited this place last week. When all 6 of us stepped out of the leading passage way and saw our huts and the beach we stood their with our jaws dropping for at-least 30 seconds. This beach is so pure. Totally beautiful. White sands and Blue waters. The best part about Romance Coco Beach huts is its location. Its the last set of huts on the best beach in Goa. So you don't have a lot of people walking around and in front of your rooms. You can simply sit with the huge windows open and stare at the ocean. The small sitting huts outside the main hut are perfect for enjoying a chilled beer while listening to the waves. If you want to explore head to the right side and you will find some fresh water streams joining the sea. Take a hike around in the jungle. Also the owners Abul and his wife Sarah are great hosts. They make sure you get everything you need to make your trip memorable. Excellent food and Drinks. Recommended : Grilled Chicken and Prawns. Fresh Watermelon Juice!

If you want to experience the untouched beauty of Goa this is the place to be. 15 minutes away from the fantastic beaches of Palolem and Cola.

My husband and I stayed at the Romance Huts for 5 nights.....it was not long enough! We thoroughly enjoyed every minute or our stay. The huts are really charming, basic but have everything you need and perfect for complete relaxation. The outlook is gorgeous, the sea is literally right there and the sunsets are beautiful! Abdhul and Sarah were the perfect hosts, so helpful and friendly and the food they cooked is out of this world amazing!! So fresh and delicious, each and every meal was treat from breakfast through to dinner we were never disappointed. My husband took a particular fancy to their banana shakes but genuinely everything they served was fantastic from porridge right through to the most decadent fish or prawn curries not to mention the poppadoms and naan bread - 5 star quality.

We didn't want to leave and would happily go back there! Its a definite must if you want seclusion, tranquility and a beautiful setting - the huts are set at the North end of the beach so if you want more action you only need to walk along the beach. A really great place run by fantastic people :-)

Also I was nervous about mosquitos but there were none, I'm usually eaten alive but didn't suffer a bit which was another huge plus for me.

The place is one end of a quiet serene beach Agonda, in South Goa. This is perfect for family, we were a family of 4 (kids 6 and 3 yrs). The hosts Abul and Sarah are always there to take care of things. The rooms are very comfortable, very well ventilated, great view and right on the beach (it was cold in the night in March end). The place and the beach is very clean. Food is great, a little oily though. There are several places cheaper than this in Agonda, but I would go back to Romance for the cleanliness, location and the hosts. We had to move out of Romance for our last night in Agonda to another place much cheaper, but value the experience of Romance.

Romance's spot at the very north end of the beach is pretty idyllic: Agonda is quiet, and Romance's five colourful huts are quieter still, enjoying particularly beautiful surroundings. If you read other, older reviews here (and why would you want to do that?), or look at Romance's website, be aware that they may refer to a previous location. From 2012/13, for ten years (apparently), Romance is in its own tranquil location, away from the slightly more happening centre of the beach. For more about the happening centre, have a look at my review of Bioveda (listed on TripAdvisor as 'Bio Veda') Goa.

The huts themselves are in a short row, all facing the beach, a few wooden fishing boats, and the ocean. There's a bit of greenery at the end of the bay, a few birds of prey and the odd cow or walker wandering by. Not a lot else.

These huts are a bit classier than some others. Not so that (unless you're better at this than me) you'd necessarily notice on a quick glance. But move in and you'll appreciate that they're well-designed, comfortable, attractive inside as well as out, and with touches that go a little beyond the utterly no-frills interiors of some of Romance's competitors. The big room is partitioned off to give each of two kingsize beds its own living space, one space larger than the other. The back of the hut opens into a generous open-air but private shower-room/wet room. No hot water, but in this heat you really don't need it. An attractive porch on the front is a great place to sit, as are chairs and tables with grass parasols, in front of the huts.

The couple who run Romance, Abul and Sarah, are friendly and helpful people who make great food. (Abul wouldn't negotiate on price but would throw in breakfast.) There's no restaurant as such. Romance isn't that sort of place. The table in front of your hut is a perfect place to eat.

Like many others, I extended my stay because it was too lovely not to.
