“Good place though little far away from beach”
Reviewed 17 October 2013

We came in the night at about 11:30, we opened the gate went inside...we were totally disappointed to see the security jumping in front of us and shouting that we can't park it seems..we came in after a 700km drive...We were moved into the rooms which were pretty clean, finding a parking space little tricky here...the place is full of apartments which consist of people who stayed there on regular basis...
We got the rooms which far away from road which was our choice to avoid noise from the road.
They serve complimentary breakfast which was good...we also enjoyed the pool...

Palmarinha resort is situated in northern part of Goa and is 2 KM away from nearest beach. The rooms are spacious and have reasonably okay toilets and a living space with balcony. Swimming pools are maintained well and staff at the pool are friendly. Parking my car was a problem as there is no space within the campus and one will end up parking in a nearby apartment complex. Security personal, room boys and front desk staff are very unfriendly and rude. Food here is not very good and hence I took only breakfast ( risk free as they just serve bred, jam and corn-flex) here in the hotel.

We were looking to book a budget hotel but not too shabby and which gives us enough facilities as well, keeping these things in mind we went in for the Palmarinha. The resort is about 2.3 kms away from Calangute Beach but very easily accessible if you have your own vehicle or renting a bike.

The resort is Huge, with some buildings being rented out as apartments while the others are part of the resort itself, 3 pools, gaming + library area, SPA and a restaurant. Ofcourse there are chances you might not end up using most of these facilities.

Pool area is good, especially the front side. The back pool is a little secluded and probably for people who want to enjoy by themselves. The pool is well maintained and there are water polo nets as well.

Regarding our stay - we landed and were informed that a whole bunch of school kids had come in and hence our rooms have been upgraded (to Suites!). The rooms were clean and pretty much all you needed for a comfortable stay. Unfortunately our room’s AC did not work the first night and the second day it took some effort for us to bring the service men for repairing but finally had to move to a new room.

The restaurant food is good, with breakfast a very basic Indian dish, bread, butter, jam, an egg preparation, cornflakes, milk and juice(which you need to ask for) + tea + coffee hence you really need to dig in and make sure that you make it till lunch.

The activity room has a TT table, fuse ball and pool table in the restaurant (chargeable though!). Staff is helpful although they knew very little about the happening places, or could not guide us well except for Mr. Gilles at the reception (only came in at 10 and left by 6 or 7)

All in all, a good stay at 2.5k per room for the night. Do not expect a 5* experience but definitely a great place to stay if you are not looking to spend on lodging and enjoying Goa more in the Sun.

Room Tip: If available, choose the pool side rooms which are at the front side of the resort.

I traveled Goa 1st time and stayed in this resort. This was suggested by 1 of my friend.
The hospitality was good. The staff was very helpful, they will help you on every problem. There are 2 swimming pool and thats good as you can enjoy lovable moments in outer pool.

Over all in my next trip to Goa i would prefer to stay here.

Room Tip: Get a room which have balcony opened to inner swimming pool.

Our third visit to Palmarinha Resort, April 2013, since November 2011. Our favourite wing is the North one, all rooms are large, quiet and overlook the Paddy Fields, floors 2,3 & 4.
The Resort is situated away from the hustle & bustle, a small minibus is provided every hour from 9am -5pm daily. The beach is about 10 mins, ask to stop anywhere along the way.
The Indian food is excellent although some guests find the menu restricted and expensive, we did not, all staff polite and helpful. There are many choices of restaurant in and around Calangute. (see this website).
Things to take: Sink plug, small padlock for the deposit locker in reception, (if needed). A good Multi plug can be purchased (for 50inr) in town at the small supermarket opposite Menzies on Beach road.

Goa is very good value for money, see icelolly.com. Book early, as late deals are not always available.

Room Tip: See report above, all inner rooms face face a sometimes noisy pool area. The rooms facing the road a...
