“Nothing too much trouble for the staff here delightful!”
Reviewed March 13, 2013

We stayed here for one week and we could not find fault with it. The rooms are clean mossier nets clean , food wonderful ! The staff are smashing , any problems even down to a cockroach in the room and they will be onto it . Dinesh, the manager is very obliging and goes out of his way to make sure you have no problems. Agi , who usually serves the food is great , they all have a good sense of humour . We have travelled around India a few times and have paid more for a lot less. The gardens are lovely and they sweep their beachfront every day. Also it's very secure and the rooms have lockers.
Will definitely come back here and recommend it very highly.

We had a wonderful time at Simrose Guesthouse. Hospitality is superb (Binesh, you have a great team!), good relaxed atmosphere, excellent food. The beach hut is basic but you don’t need more; nice beach and enough space to lounge at Simrose place. We like to come back!

Stopped 5 nights end Nov beginning of December 12. I have visaited Goa many times and this is truly is one of the best places I have stayed. Binesh, Dinesh and all the staff are really friendly and cannot do enough for you. The huts are simply furnished and clean with comfortable beds, I slept soundly every night, lulled to sleep by the sound of the ocean waves. Food is good with plenty of choice. They have chill out areas where you can lounge about and relax, and offer yoga sessions if you want to partake, I cant really comment on these though as I was just too lazy to give it a go :) but they looked good. Agonda beach is beautiful, its clean, quiet and unspoit and you dont get hassled by people trying to sell you sarongs & CD's every 5 minutes like on some of the other south Goa beaches. Looking forward to going back very very soon.

Room Tip: The beach huts are fantastic as the way they are designed keep them cool at night with the sea breez...

Stayed 6 nights at Simrose - and what a treat :)
Beach is beautiful, and not crowded. The food is very good, the beers are always cold. But what makes a stay at Simrose unforgettable is definately the staff. They make you feel very welcome upon arrival, and very much at home during the stay. We absolutely loved this place!

Firstly if you have never been to Agonda, you have a real treat in store. Agonda is just a village that has developed in recent years with pretty beach shacks and restaurants all set amongst palm trees along a gorgeous beach. It has to be the most laid back place on the planet! The main activity in Agonda is a daily stroll along the beach, followed by a Kingfisher shortly afterwards, or during! There are many places to stay and this being our 2nd visit to Agonda, we chose Simrose. The boys that run Simrose are truly fantastic guys. They are a mixture of Nepali and Indian guys who speak English very well, and all do an amazing job. The guys make you feel special and welcome, and nothing is too much trouble in spite of the very long hours they work. Simrose has a good kitchen and does really good food. We ate there a lot of the time as it was so good. The kitchen and waiting staff are efficient and I must say a great big thank you to my lovely friend Ajay who is most charming and did a great job of keeping me in watermelon juice and 'uncle' in beer! Binish manages the team and keeps everything running smoothly aided by Dinesh who is funny and has great charisma. There are different types of room available, some with partial sea view, a couple with full sea view.What I have learnt from staying in different 'on-the'beach' shacks is that you don't really need a sea view. You are always about 20 seconds away from it and you can sit and watch the sea roll in and out, morning, night and noon. We moved from Simrose to Patnem and then returned to Simrose again because we loved it so much. The sister establishment to Simrose on Patnem is called 'Salida del Sol' and if you are thinking of going to Patnem, they look after you wonderfully there too. Thanks to you all for making our holiday special. Next time we meet, I hope it is in Nepal. Vicky & John (uncle)

I really can't explain how amazing this place was. I would give it 10 stars, but can't. It's worth more than 5! We felt so relaxed and Binesh the owner is so chilled out and makes you feel at home. Our hut was perfect with all the basic essentials. The restaurant cooks the nicest food we have ever had - not just in India, but in forever! It is all so reasonable and tastes amazing. Agonda beach is beautiful and has hardly seen tourists. The water is clean and warm with huge waves!

We never even paid for anything until the end of our stay, food, drinks everything. I don't know how they remember who has had what but it was such a nice touch and we felt so relaxed that we could just walk to the fridge or order what we liked when we liked. We would certainly return here for a longer visit. Only problem was we only stayed 2 nights!!

Only negative (nothing that can be changed though!) was the really noisy crows at 4am overhead. In the hut you can hear everything - we would consider a room next time!

We went into our three night stay at Simrose with relatively low expectations due to the cost, but our experience was excellent. To enjoy a place like Simrose, you have to understand what "beach hut" vacationing is about...it's very simple and rustic, but if you like that kind of experience, Simrose has got to be on of the best options in Goa. Agonda beach is beautiful - quiet, no crowds, beautiful sand and nice waves for the kids. The village leading up to Simrose is quaint and makes for nice afternoon walk. The food, beverages and services are very good, but remember, the pace of life and overall style is very laid back. Only tip...Simrose, like most other places of its kind, are cash only! I didn't think that they communicated this point very well. Especially with cost in mind, Goa/Simrose was one of the best family vacations we've ever had.

Room Tip: the huts facing the water have nice views, but you may be bothered by the sound at night from people...
