Bougainvillea Guest House Goa
Ranked #2 of 66 Hotels in Candolim
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 May 2012 via mobile

I was bowled over by how fantastic my stay was at Bougainvillea. The rooms and beautiful and spotless, the breakfasts are faultless and the staff cannot do enough to make your stay more comfortable and enjoyable. All of the staff went out of their way to welcome me, providing a service that I have not experienced in 5* hotels. As an example of one of their acts of kindness, I hand washed some clothes and draped them over a chair outside my room to dry. When I came back later that day, someone had very kindly hung them from a drying rack for me so they they would dry faster. This is just one of the many small things that the staff did during my stay that goes far beyond what is expected of them.

The guest house is a very short walk from the beach, but down a lovely quiet side street- the perfect location.

I can't recommend this guest house highly enough. I am hoping to return very soon!

Lourenco and his family are just fantastic. I have been to Goa 6 times and this little hotel is the best find yet. OK, no pool and they only cook when you ask but I would still stay there over the Taj anytime. Peaceful, mega location, massive gorgeous rooms and just the best place to recharge the old batteries. Fell in love with it and already booked in for 2013.

Room Tip: All nice but the penthouse has a balcony the size of a volleyball court.

Amazing services. Worth it. Stayed there for 5 days or so and found it extra ordinary.
Beautiful room, well maintained, neat and clean.
It was an awesome experience altogether.

Thanks Laurenco & Co.
Looking forward to your other hotels soon :)

Room Tip: 1st room on the ground floor. I enjoyed staying there. Nice small personal garden at the back.

When we were welcomed at the gate by Lourenco and his family, we knew it was going to be a good stay! We had decided on a week in Goa to round off a very strenuous, wonderful Indian tour and found the Bougainvillea on Tripadvisor. Our room was beautiful and big enough to hold a dance in, the bathroom had A big corner bath/shower, there was a small sitting room and a great big fridge. Or balcony looked out over the street. The standard of cleanliness is excellent. The guest house stands in a lush tropical garden in which you find the open-air restaurant. The cook, Freddie, and his helpers have a kitchen with a palm tree growing through the middle! Breakfast is delicious, especially the masala omelette, and I am still grieving over NO LONGER having that great slice of papaya every morning! On our last day Freddie cooked a brilliant lunch for us, you order in advance so that everything is fresh. We always enjoyed the walk down to the beach (along a tree-lined street) and into town. The guest house is on a hill; everyone who lives on the street greets you when you walk past. What really made the stay for us, however, was the attitude of Lourenco, his wife and his son - plus of course Freddie & Co. and the girls who clean the rooms. Lourenco makes you feel so welcome, helps you whenever you need help and does everything to make your stay memorable. We wouldn't want to stay anywhere else and hope to go back to the Bougainvillea sooner rather than later.

we arrived early hours sunday morning to a wonderful reception from lourenco there was seven in our party and we were given our rooms immediately which we all found to be spotless and welcoming after our long journey. The guest house is in a quite location just outside candollim but due to our wonderful taxi drivers mario and peter who was available all times travelling anywhere was never a problem lourenco always offered his services anytime day and night for lifts very kind and obliging.We had three evening meals one of which was for a birthday which all that can be said the service food that was delivered from freddie and his staff was excellent they really went out of their way.nothing was too much trouble lourenco sorted a phone for us as our didnt accept indian sim cards we cannot praise this guest house enough lourenco annie and all their staff made all our holiday the best ever we will recommend to all friends thank you from all for a wonderful time.

Room Tip: no tips to add all rooms spotless and inviting

I thought it about time that I wrote a review on this lovely guest house in Candolim even though it is a few months since we stayed there. Although a little out of the town the house is set in a beautiful, friendly and pretty part of Candolim known as Sinquerim. The town can be reached in less than 10 -20 minutes walk and it is a pleasant walk indeed.The rooms (suites) at Bougainvillea are spacious, bright and airy. Spotlessly clean and well equipped. Breakfast is served in the garden and so is dinner in the evening should you wish to eat there. We ate there twice and the food was amazing. The fish is sourced locally by Freddie and cooked fresh for you. The staff are so friendly and Lourenco and Freddie keep guests entertained. They are also very knowledgeable of the area and give advice of local transport and services in the area. When I was ill Lourenco even took us to the local hospital and saw to it that we saw a doctor quickly. He goes out of his way for everyone. There was a mix up with our booking and Lourenco arranged for us to stay at the Marbella for a couple of nights at no additional cost to us and took care of everything. He was so apologetic. The whole time we were there we could not have asked for a better place to stay. When we return to Goa we would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: We were upgraded to the Penthouse suite which was luxurious.

We were lucky to stay here for two weeks Feb/March just gone. What a wonderful surprise when we got ther after a VERY cramped flight courtesy of Monarch!! We were picked up at the airport by a friendly taxi driver and transported to a quiet oasis where a always cheerful Lourenco and Freddie bought us are first cup of char. We were offered a choice of room, and decided to take the garden one. sitting room with chairs, big fridge, (well stocked) bedroom with a huge bed, fan and air conditining, french doors out onto our little private oasis complete with hammock Bliss !! Rooms were kept spotless. The care and attention that the whole team give so that your holiday goes well is fantastic. Thanks very much to you. we will definitely staying here on our next vist to Goa.

Room Tip: we had the ground floor room with private garden and hammock
