Had lovely time with the family. It's in the lap of nature. Good place for family. Has Ac n non AC, but it blows due to the sea breeze, u will not require AC. Food can be bought from a near by shack, home made food by a local at the side of the beach. .................
Peace on banks of river Talpona

We had a peaceful stay at Rio de Talpona. The family owning the property were very helpful. Enjoyed it very much. Only thing we missed was AC in room as it gets hot and humid in April. But overall, the property offers a very safe stay and good value for money.

We stayed here for a few days in Oct 2014. A peaceful place to relax alongside the river Talpona. The price offered was very reasonable. We payed Rs. 1200/- per night for a cottage which was a non-AC. There is a small garden in front of the cottage which is neatly maintained and you can find a few varieties of flowers and also birds chirping in the mornings. The classic Galjibagh beach is close by for people who love peace and quiet.

Stayed here for two weeks over the Christmas period, arrived very early in morning, no one about, but managed to find owr room in a set of buildings along side the main house, door was open so we lay down for awhile. Priyesh the manager arrived shortly after and was very helpful. The room is basic with a attached shower and toilet. There was no hot water but this was being installed as we were leaving. The location is lovely and we were right on the estuary where the sea met the river. Itis a very quiet location and ideal for those who want to be away from the hustle and bustle of Patnem and Palolem. Wifi is available but you would have to sit outside the main house to connect. Priyesh is very helpful and we also got our washing done by his mum who was very nice. Slight drawback is the restaurants were not great on Talpona but we did get a very cheap moped hired from Priyesh . This meant we could go over to the main beaches of Agonda, and Patnem where the food is great. We have travelled to India many times and it seems to be getting more expensive but still cheap compared to Thailand. Overall an enjoyable stay and thanks to Priyesh and his mum.
