“Looking to be brilliant late 2012 early 2013.”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

Visited for food November 2012 and an extremely helpful staff member (Beni~please forgive spelling!) showed us partly built huts. I say huts, these are teak framed rooms with tiled rooves. They had hot and cold showers and beautifully ornate brass (looking) sinks. Although not quite finished they weren't far off. The rooms will far surpass it's nearest competition (H20 ~ I stayed in 2011) and I think may even be a bit cheaper. H20 for me has taken it's eye off the ball and Dunhill looks to be the next top place.
I also ate there (party of four) and the food quality was superb. I had stuffed prawn rolls to start with a "swoosh" of a sauce. Really top quality cooking (and presentation) served by staff that seemed generally pleased to help. Beni even drew maps for us on napkins and suggested places to visit. The kitchen and staff can be seen from the seating area and huge stainless steel work surfaces and the fact they can be seen, suggests considerable professionalism and pride in their cooking. Not over priced and excellent value for money. (Sorry H20) you have had your day).

Agonda is one of the secluded beaches in Goa for complete relaxation and we found the Dunhill property to be totally complementary to the set-up. A nice resort, with close proximity to the beach makes it a good choice. It has an excellent restaurant facing the sea and courteous staff to present a hassle-free stay.

I have been to Agonda almost 5 times in the past 7 years now.
Dunhill is one of the places where you can go with your family.

Pros: 1> Reasonable price 2> Very good restaurant 3> Location is 30 meters from the sea which is Ok 4> Very Very very clean toilets and this is what I liked the most.

Cons: 1> Room cleaning is done only on alternate days. 2> Lot of mosquitoes and ants at night and hence it is advisable to opt for A/C room 3> Hot water is available only between 9 to 5

Overall very nice place if you don't need to be bang on the beach.

Room Tip: Go for Airconditioned rooms. Believe me they are worth the extra 1000 bucks a day.

Dear Guest
Thank you for appreciating our Resort and our Restaurant. We endeavor to make our Guests as comfortable as possible on Agonda which is a secluded beach with dense forest/foilage at the back. We have a challenging task of keeping the property/garden green and natural and at the same time making sure our guests are not at any discomfort.
We have noted your request and Cons and have immediately put the House Keeping staff to ensure that 'Hot Water ' is available 24 hours (we have solar heated facility) .
We spray mosquito repellent in our Garden periodically and in the evening also light a Anti Mosquito incense and Coil due to the thick forest area in the back side of the property.
Best regards
The Dunhill Team

Agonda is my favourite beach in Goa and the Dunhill Beach resort is THE place to stay in Agonda. A great ambiance, mouth watering food and just a stone's throw away from the beach, this hotel is a charming family run property that is second to none in cleanliness and hospitality. While I haven't been there in a while, I pray that old man Menino has recovered completely from his open heart surgery and is doing well.

We went to Agonda this October, with the sole intention of being on the beach all the time and needing the resort only for sleeping. We really wanted beach huts, but most were in construction and only a few were open. We went to Dunhill and were not disappointed at all. FIrst thing to say is that though this property looks a bit old from outside but all rooms are freshly painted and refurbished from the inside. We took their budget rooms and were surprised at how well maintained they were. Special thanks to the resort people who seem to take cleanliness very seriously. The rooms and the towels were spotless and the staff very were friendly and like family. The only downside is (as someone has rightly pointed out before) that there is no beach view. But thats alright, considering the beach is maximum a 30sec walk form you rooms. They do have a beach facing restaurant. All in all I will come back to stay in the budget rooms (INR1000/USD20 per night, could be off season rates?) which I felt were very good bargain. Will I take the AC / Deluxe rooms? Maybe not, might prefer looking for beach huts at the price. But thats my choice.

Room Tip: Budget rooms are good bargain.

During our visit in March 2012, we had our dinner here on recommendation of our taxi driver and it's the best place to eat in Agonda. We returned here on the next day also for another dinner. They have an extensive menu and the service was prompt and the food quality and taste were simply awesome. The location is another plus point. One can enjoy the beautiful sea and the great food together.
It's expensive compared to other nearby places but so is the food. Also, they cook in mineral water which increases the cost. Among all the restaurants in North and South Goa, I found this to be the best.
Before going, we tried to do advance booking for stay here but we did not get 4 rooms that we needed. Only 3 were available, so we had to book in other places. Wish we could stay here.
