HORRIBLE SERVICE AND OWNER
on Jul 28, 2017
I had booked 10 rooms for my wedding in June 17 for 2 days. My family had gone in early for the arrangements. We had taken a flat for few days. The 2 bedroom that was given to us was horrible with lizards and ants in the kitchen. An old fridge that barely worked. Flooring not cleaned. The toilet had cockroaches. When we confronted the owner the next day and complained about it he refused to take any action, on top of that when my mother said that we were leaving he said he threatened to lock us in the compound till we made the payment. I have never seen such a bad customer service and arrogance of the owner towards their customers. I would suggest people to check and double check before going to this place. If left to me I would never return at all.
First Time in India

Me and a friend stayed at the inn for two weeks in oct/nov 2015 ( ignore "May" in the box), a friend of his booked us in for one night before we arrived and then we decided to stay longer.
It's a lovely place near roadside cafes, stall and about a 15 minute walk to the beach and shacks.
Basic room with shower and toilet, all windows are barred and netted for safety and to keep the mozzies out.
The food in the bar area was brilliant and so cheap!
Met a lot of europeans who go back every year, which is always a good sign.
The family are lovely here.
If you're looking for 5* luxury and a pool look elsewhere.
Loved this place overall.

Well, this is my twentieth consecutive Western Tourist Season staying with the Fernandes family, at their Guest House, Rosario's Inn, off of Beach Road, Benaulim, which has got to say something about the place, no? Possibly, the fact that the Goan Winter is warmer than our warmest Summer, and coincides with our Winter?
To be fair, the reason that most of us come back, year after year, is to meet all of our lovely friends. Friends we do occasionally see when we are back in our home countries.
The room rates are reasonable, and offer basic accommodation. In the main, twin-bedded rooms, with en-suite bathroom (wet room/shower room with WC, c/w solar panel heated water).
All rooms have ceiling fans, and a veranda, if on ground floor, or shared access balcony if on an upper floor.
The property is walled, and a night guard and charming well behaved dog named Blackie provide static security at the entrance throughout the hours of darkness.
The "Restaurant Shack" is run by Nickael and her husband Santana, with help, as and when required, from an Indian cook.
Santana's background was working for an international hotel, hospitality, and cruise group, latterly based permanently ashore at one of their properties in Bermuda. This has guaranteed a very high standard of international cuisine, in addition to the Indian staples. So, excellent breakfasts, lunches, and dinners.
Free Wi-Fi, for customers, and TV in the restaurant shack, which has recently had the ubiquitous plastic chairs upgraded to nice bentwood cane numbers. The restaurant is also a bar, with the usual range of water, soft drinks, and liquor.
the place is more tranquil than a temple

the place is situated right adjacent to a football field. So, all football freaks, like me, can watch the lads play and even join them at times. Having said that, the rooms are pretty decent, with airconditioned rooms also available for comfort. the housekeeping is excellent. and the place is surrounded by palm trees which provide the necessary shade around the rooms from the scorching sun.
The only place we could find

It was alot harder than expected for us to find a room for one night suitable for backpackers, most places were full, didn't want to accept one night, or were over 1000rs a night. This place was in our guidebook so we finally decided to check it out after being refused by so many.. They said yes and we got a room for 600rs which I think she said was 800rs originally. The room was fine but nothing special. Relatively quite and away from the road but the bedding didn't smell clean and didn't seem as though it had been changed. We thought maybe the discount was because the room hadn't been changed over.
For backpackers, generally we've found that the south of goa is more expensive than the northern beaches, however we have just been exploring places by the beach.
