“Beautiful Ennvironment, Excellent Food, Friendly Attitude”
Reviewed 30 May 2013

Small buildings between trees and flowers, comfortable room with veranda, birds singing in the morning, excellent food not spicy in the Palm Garden Restaurant between trees and shrubs with picturesque lamplight in the evening, very friendly attitude of the owners and staff and also as an additional advantage walking distance only to the sandy beach.

I know this is late but must post this as I think this is one of the nicest places I have stayed in Goa. The Delux room in the new block was extremely clean, comfortable and had good air con. The gardens are absolutely beautiful and the restaurant served some very good food. All the staff are polite and smile all the time. The owner and his family were very attentive and even spent time helping me with a "dog" problem. My partner and I stayed here over Christmas and New Year (2012/13) and had a lovely relaxing holiday. The cottages are only 10mins from the beach, a few minutes from other restaurants, supermarkets and shops and there is a laundry directly opposite the main gate. Will definitely be coming back.

Room Tip: The delux rooms in the new block are worth that bit extra

We stayed here in Dec/Jan and had a really good time. First we wanted to stay for 2 nights and then extended every day. The family who runs this place is very lovely and helpful. The garden is beautiful and we would definitely come back again.

Booked last minute whilst waiting for a flight from Delhi, was tired and exhausted from the North of India. Arrived and felt suddenly very relaxed. Staff and owners, made us feel welcome over xmas when away from family and friends. Put lots of decorations up, gave out xmas cards and had fireworks in the hotel garden on xmas eve. Lots of great seafood served in the restaurant. Rooms were better than some in the area, showers weren't great but I didn't go on holiday to sit in my room and shower. Lots of nice restuarants in the area, laundary across the road and beach within 10mins walk. Its in the quieter end of Benaulim, lovely and peaceful compared to Delhi. Just what we needed.
Thanks for letting us stay and making us welcome. The only downside was lack of Wifi in a room, but when your on holiday why use it!
I would recomend staying here if you don't want a guesthouse, but a small family run resort.

Room Tip: Three options Non a/c - which was ok, as not facing the sun. Ac basic and deluxe ac. Deluxe ac was...

We are a family of five who spent one week in the hotel in December. We stayed in the new block and the rooms were really nice. Beautiful floors. Quiet , equipped with airconditioning. All staff and the hotel owner were friendly. The restaurant was smal and sometimes nearly empty but served good food from a restricted menue. Ten minutes to walk to the beach which was not crowded. Mainly middle-class Indians on the beach.Good restaurants on the beach. I would definitely like to come back here!

We did stay there second half of August 2012 for 1 night

Location:
It has a beautiful garden and also the cottages looks good. It is about 5 to 10 minutes from the main junction in Benaulim away. Across the street is a nice little shop for afternoon Chai tea and free snacks with the tea.

Pros:
- Clean rooms
- Good & fresh restaurant
- Well cleaned and maintained gardens
- Bed with option for mosquito net (but bring your own)
- Free electrical mosquito killer thing

Cons:
- No Wifi (not fun in monsoon season)
- No TV (not fun in monsoon season)
- Electrical switches in the shower in all rooms except most expensive ones
- Also expensive in off season (new room for 2750 RS/night)
- No breakfast included
- No chance to discuss with owner (about price, car drop offs, checkout time, etc.)

It is a good place for older people who want to relax, not be bothered by other people, read a book and enjoy nature but not for a couple like us (mid 20's).

If you are the type who loves a garden, peace and quiet then you will probably love this place. Its located about 2km from Benaulim beach, has 2 wings with rooms in each and a large garden in front with a wide variety of plants and trees. The small restaurant is located in the middle of the garden. We stayed in a room in the newer wing and it had an AC, fridge and a small balcony.
We had a car with us, which was really useful as we preferred to drive to our choice of place for lunch and dinner, and also to various nearby beaches, rather than only to Benaulim.
We had breakfast in the restaurant a few times and the food and service were good. The room was neat and clean, though we had to remind them a couple of times to provide something as basic as a bathmat. They also didnt have great beach towels, and once even said they didnt have enough.
The place seems to be run by a family and overall they seem to provide decent value, though they need to be careful they dont miss out on the small things which a guest needs for a happy stay.
