This is my first ever post on this great site. I've read through a few of the postings and you're a very knowledgable bunch - glad you're out there!
My partner and I are heading to India for 4 weeks, hoping to spend 2 weeks in South Goa over Christmas and New Year.
I desperately need help in finding decent accommodation in South Goa, on or very near the beach, a pool would be nice and clean rooms. We also love our food so beach shacks/restaurants also a must.
Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks loads in advance for your help.
All the best
Welcome to the forum, to get an idea of accomadation in South goa http://www.jewelholidays.com or http://www.travelpack.co.uk are good. I'm staying for the first time in Jan 06 at Royal Palms in Benaulim. I hear Colva is pretty good too! The lonely planet travel guide on Goa is pretty good if you are looking for accomodation only.
Hope this helps.
south Goa normally hints u to Colva and sourrounding beaches like Beanulim,, as there are many good palces to stay
major five starts ....
try Mahinra beach resort
or Nanu beach resort which is close to the beach and fantasic too,
u can try old anchor,
Ramada Caravela Beach resort
Good palces in Cavelosim too
lots more small places too
try searching in google for hotels in Goa ... u will get a lot many sites ,,, which might help u to make a decision ...
Big daddys inn
10 minutes from the airport
One of a few hotels in Goa that are actually on the beach.
Have stayed there myself on the odd occassion and have booked for December this year.
Have a wonderful time!!!
You said in one of your messages "If you need Gaffinos email address please let me know". Then yes please !! We stayed there three years ago and it made our holiday. To cut a long story short we were 'allocated on arrival' and to put it mildly were rather disappointed when we arrived at Gaffinos. Last time we did AoR we ended up in a 5* all inclusive resort in Dom Rep. So a guest house on a dusty street wasn't what we were expecting. However, the food, the ambience, the staff, the guests, the location, the choice of music in the bar, etc, etc, made it one of those places you can't forget. Add in the general Goan ambience in Mobor and Cavelossim and it's a place that you just know you just have to go back to.
So maybe Jan 07 will be when we return. We'd like to book direct if possible and arrange a flight separately (any advice on this also gratefully received) so if you can let me have their email their email address it would be fantastic !
We staying at Sao Domingos (just round the corner from Gaffinos), take a look at http://www.saodomingosgoa.com ~ same price as Gaffinos.
We normally book flights via Travel Republic but this time have booked through Olympic Holidays (thought they only did Cyprus and Greece). TR were quoting £1,555 for two people but Olympic came out at £991, a massive saving.
Any other info just ask
