“Functional Budget Hotel - Needs to Improve Cleanliness”
Reviewed 20 August 2011

The biggest advantage of this hotel is it's location. Its just a short walk away from Colva beach.. Its a budget hotel with medium sized rooms and a basic menu.

Pros: Great Support staff, goes out of their way to help you. Never in your face. Near to the beach; Food generally well cooked, though menu is limited

Cons: Rooms are REALLY dirty. The mustiness hits you the moment you enter the rooms and you need to remind housekeeping to use room freshners. In our room, the telephones had to be changed to get a working one, the Geyser was not working at all and the curtains were stained and dirty. While some of these might not be a problem during the holiday season, there really is no excuse for the shabby curtains and the peeling walls...

You can stay there, if you dont plan to spend too much time in the room; If you are a group of Bachelors, you probably wouldnt care about the cleanliness; Would probably try out a better hotel next time

Graciano Cottages, Colva, Goa: "Exceptional treatment"
Date: 26th March, 2011
We booked this hotel for our weekend stay in Goa mainly based on its #1 rating on TripAdvisor. And it is a unique little gem, really.

We have stayed at many hotels over the years, often luxury ones with impeccable details and fantastic designs. Price-wise Graciano Cottages is on par with these better-class hotels. But the comparison fails: Hotel Graciano is not a luxury place. Yet, in ten years from now, I’m sure we will still fondly remember the vacation we had there.

It is the perceptive and friendly service that makes it worthwhile staying in this small family-run hotel. The owners and staff are social at just the right level and they go to great length to make you feel at home. In the afternoon, the staff would bring out snacks and coffee for guests who had opted to spend the day in the shade of the palm trees in the little garden. At no charge.

We were received with open arms and exceptionally generously when we came to visit. The owner even offered us to invite them all (ten people) to the hotel’s garden for the celebration of my father’s birthday. For the occasion they had prepared home-baked cake, snacks and a fantastically thoughtful gift.

This said, there is nothing wrong with the facilities. The room we had was spacious and pretty, the breakfast is good and the distance to the beach is limited. The garden may be small, but it’s a relaxing and quiet place – one where you really don’t mind spending an afternoon or two with a good book.

And as many people have written before. Graciano Cottages is a place you would definitely come back to and recommend to your friends. Thank you very much for making our stay so pleasant!!!

The Graciano cottages is a small hotel quite near the beach at Colva beach, in South Goa. Despite the name, it has no cottages. The hotel consists of two floors of rooms built in a rough half-circle around a garden. Being a small property, there are no frills like a pool or recreation facilities.

The rooms were small, but clean. The staff did a good job every day, and the linen and towels always seemed fresh. With an extra bed, the room was very cramped, but we were out most of the time. This was our first time in Goa, and we'd asked the cab driver from the railway station to show us some hotels in Colva. By the time we'd reached Graciano, we were pretty tired, and were happy to settle. It's a basic hotel, at a very reasonable price, and i don't think anyone would complain. We wanted a better hotel, so after some days we found one and moved. Obviously, it cost more.

We only had breakfasts at the Graciano. The buffet was not very extensive, but it varied every morning, and was well cooked. We were able to fill ourselves up before going out for the day. Food isn't a problem at all in this part of Goa. There's Tate's place a little way away, which serves a Full English Breakfast All Day, and a South Indian joint at the corner. Beyond, there is a Cafe Coffee Day, and various restaurants, beach shacks, and grocery stores. Colva beach is pretty lively, especially in the evenings.
