We had booked in advanced a an air-con superior double and were pleasantly surprised to have not only a bedroom but also a sitting room and even a kitchen (without equipment) that was handy to store our stuff. The room was cleaned daily, there was hot water, and in all it was okay.

--Location on a busy road
- Internet access was only in the reception (though we managed to get online from our room via the cafe in front of the hotel.
- Breakfast was not usually available at 8 (advertised time). It was just toast and tea/coffee
- Pool was not exactly inviting though it appeared clean
- Air con unit was very noisy, making sleep less comfortable
- If you're going for the beach, then it's quite a walk though you can take a taxi if you want.

We have been coming here for the last 5 yrs, and some of our time spent here has been really good but off late things have were getting bad.

This time not only was the room bad but the staff were very rude and unhelpful.

I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone anymore.

This is my second time here and I will definitely stay again.
For the price it's great value - clean but basic with all you need,
The staff are helpful and as I find in most places they treat you as you treat them
Anjuna itself is a chilled location but close to all the night life beach shacks such as Curlies, Hippies, hill top and nine bar.
Curlies beach is the best for chilling and swimming.
In all it was a great base to explore Goa.
I would recommend Don Joao for those who like a quiet resort which is clean, friendly but no frills.
Thanks for helping to make this my best holiday ever :)

Our first impression of the hotel was quit good. The rooms and location are ok but the problem is the staff of the hotel. They are terrible and so unbelievable unfriendly.

We made a reservation for 2 days but after the first day we want to stay longer. I went to the reception and ask for availability. This was not a problem and we should stay here for 5 days. After we wake up the second day and we go out for breakfast a guy from the hotel told us we have to check out directly. He said we have not make a reservation for longer time and he kick us out of the room. We tried to explain we reserved the room for more days but he won't listen. We put our stuff at the reception and went out for a breakfast. After we came back we ask for a discount because of the situation. He locked up our bagage and say that we have to pay the whole amount otherwise we should not get back our backpacks.

We have travelled a lot but this was the most terrible hotel staff we ever met! There are many better places in Anjuna to stay!!

we searched for this place on the net, when we typed 'cheap hotels in goa.' didn't expect much; just a place near the beach; and hopefully a clean washroom.
on reaching however, we were agog with things we found; a clean, spacious room, decent washrooms, a swimming pool (on the side of which, the waiter would place chilled beers while we were in it), and a generally happy ambience; exactly like what one should expect in a place like Goa.
what makes the hotel even better is the location; Anjuna beach. While the North of Goa is typically supposed to be 'noisy', as opposed to South Goa (which is the quieter version), the location of Anjuna beach is balanced so as to let you find your silent, introspective moments, in near and distant beaches like Arambol and beyond, and likewise, to purge your party-instincts in places like Baga etc.
another thing about the hotel- at the price one pays, it is just sheer bliss to start the day with a big (and cheap) breakfast sitting next to the beautiful pool.

Room Tip: avoid sitting on the chairs placed under the coconut trees in the pool area- the nuts have a tendenc...
