When we got up in the sunshine and went for breakfast we realise that is was going to be a lovely place to spend our holiday in. The staff are wonderful and cannot do enough... More

The stay at Dona Sa Maria turned out to be very very nice. Nice people. Kids had a great time at the pool. The nearby beach was quiet and serene. So will visit this place and stay there several more times for sure!!

What was great: The hosts, the pool, neat rooms & rest rooms. There are secluded beaches around, unlike the highly commercialized, crowded & relatively dirty ones in North Goa What was not: (1) The geyser wasn't working in our room. However, the hosts were nice enough to apologize for it & let us use another room where it did work,... More
