“Double booked”
Reviewed December 15, 2013

As said on his forum it is very hard (impossible) to get in contact with them prior arrival. When we arrived there was no room avaliable :-(.....despite the fact we had booked (via Agoda) in advance and paid a long time before arriving Obviously they didn´t care, sel´sl rooms who ever comes first, pays most, stays longest time etc.. What pathetic people who run this place that can´t manage the most important thing of running a hotel/hostel - customer care. Stay Away!

Stayed December 2013, traveled with family

For very low budget extremely quiet accomodation this place is perfect, however to call the huts premium is misleading and the picture looks lovely from the outside but the huts are basically rickety shacks, the only thing Premium being the large size compared to other huts. Stuck right on the end of Agonda it is also relatively inaccessible. Having stayed 2 weeks on Agonda I would summarise that there are much nicer beachfront huts at similar and even lower prices along Agonda beach. Sorry for the not-so-positive review, but the external pictures combined with the word premium lead people to expect something better than what the hut itself offered, and that seems not quite fair. We left after one night.

We, my hus and I had un excellent time here!! Thanks!!! The owner Abul is a good cook, so we eat here while looking at the sea. Sara is very kind!! We were always looking at sea with a cup of coffee, tea and breakfast dinner etc etc.
This Hut is more expensive than other Huts around but! but! you can have a peaceful and lonely beach life without any worry about food. The room is OK for 4 people. So if you came with 4, it is absolutely payed off.

The Romance Beach Huts are definitely the best way to experience Goa on the most beautiful beach around. The owners, Abul and Sarah, are extremely considerate and know how to make your stay an unforgettable experience. Abul's cuisine is terrific while Sarah is always helpful to you. The place is really peaceful, perfect to rest in an idyllic environment.

We had stayed there between 17 May'13 to 21May'13 n it was excellent experience. Rooms were clean n tidy.service was upto mark.
Location was best in Goa for sure if u want peaceful and lonely beach with no disturbance.Sarah n Abul were too friendly and professional.
If u diet conscious do ask thm for minimum use of oil or can order some delicious grilled sea food.
ABUL we will back in December and thanks for chicken curry.wish you lot of luck n success.

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
