Candolim is one of the busiest goan beach areas frquented by a lot of westerners and hence the price of accomodations there are on the higher side.at first the tariff that dsouzas charges might seem high for the services it provides but if you put the location in context it's more than reasonable.

all i can say is they deliver what they promise. nothing less,but a lot more...like anthony,the owner was kind enough to offer us to get medicines and very sweet to plan a surprise for us on request of my in-laws..

if you are looking for 4 star facilties at the prices its not for you,and believe me you at these prices you wont get it anywhere in baga-calangute-candolim area.But if you want a spotlessly clean air conditioned excellently located accomodation with all other necessary amneties(tv,fridge,good quality linen and towels) at a reasonable price so you can splurge on other things dsouzas is for you.

We stayed here for 4 days in February and found it to be an excellent place. The rooms are immaculately clean, spacious and quiet. It's in a great location - easily walkable to Candolim centre, beach and Fort Aguada. Anthony (the owner) and his family were very charming, helpful and friendly. Highly recommended.

Well, we certainly hit lucky when we booked a week in D'Souza's. Wonderful place, spotlessly clean, comfy beds, sheets and towels changed every other day. The rooms are very spacious with air conditioning, wardrobe and drawer space, a locking drawer for valuables, a fridge and a tv (which we never used). The bathroom is a large very clean shower/wetroom. The rooms have balconies which overlook the lovely garden and the location is nice and peaceful but close to bars and restaurants and of course the beach. We liked it so much that we booked an extra day before travelling up to Agra and Jaipur, and booked another week on our return to Candolim. We were so lucky that Anthony had a vacancy as we would otherwise have been so disappointed. Anthony is a real gentleman who cares very much about the comfort of his guests and nothing is too much trouble. To save his guests the trouble of carrying large bottles of water back to the room, Anthony will supply it for you and as the water gets low, abracadbra, a new one appears! 'Nothing is too much trouble' sounds like a cliche, but in D'Souza's case it is absolutely true. We would definitely return and we highly recommend it. Rosalind and Michael Garry

We liked it at D’Souza holiday homes –newly built accommodation behind the family home. The whole family made us very welcome.
The room was very clean and large with a comfortable bed – clean linen and towels. Our room had a little kitchen area with a fridge.
The bathroom (wet room style) is a good size and clean – plenty of hot water all the time.
We had a balcony and could watch the chipmunks scampering along tree branches from our bed and peacocks roamed below.
There is a lockable cupboard and tv.
There is no wifi but Antony did offer for us to use his wifi in his office but there are numerous places that offer free wifi whilst you eat or enjoy a drink.
Just a ten minute walk to the beach – we vered right across the road, down a lane and through a restaurant – Roy the waiter will keep your towels if you wish and reserve your free sunbed.
Plenty of good restaurants around some with live music (until 11pm) – we liked Shivers, Top Nosh and the Italian – all a very short walk from D’Souzas.
We booked four nights and stayed three weeks. We would strongly recommend D’Souzas – it is in Candolim which is quieter than Baga or Calangute.

We selected this guesthouse having read a lot of good reviews here. The property is located very close to Kingfisher villa and is on the main road connecting calangute and sinquerim. Candolim beach is at a walking distance through a small pathway. Location is prime that way.

The guesthouse is a small building behind the owner's house and beautifully maintained. We had booked a standard non-ac room for 3 days in November. The rooms are large and impeccably clean. There was a small kitchen area and a fridge but I am not sure if cooking was allowed. The bathrooms are large and clean too. Our room also had a large balcony overlooking a small garden. Overall we were very satisfied with the accommodation. In terms of food there is a slight disadvantage as only tea is served. I would suggest it would be great if atleast some breakfast/snacks (bread toast, sandwich, omelet etc) is provided.

The owner (John) is very helpful arranging bikes for us and guiding us when required. He is also very particular about the cleanliness and requests guest's co-operation with instructions given at the time of check-in. Personally I would suggest to increase the tariff by a little to include the maintenance rather than charging guests for any small damage but then it is a matter of principles and there is nothing wrong with it. We didn't have any problems as we usually are extra careful even at our own place.

Overall very satisfactory stay and would like to come back. We felt the place is ideal for long stay given its cleanliness and value for money.
