“very decent resort”
Reviewed 10 May 2014

We spent the last week at this resort. We stayed at the suit which was very modern, clean and a balcony overlooking the country side. It was a very comfortable and refreshing stay and value for money. The restaurant preparations were definitely tasty and behavior of stuffs very courteous. Room service was fantastic and definitely better than the most.
Area of improvement is the maintenance of general facilities like swimming pool, where I could see people enjoying without suitable swimming suit. The reception staffs may not be looking as cheerful or positive as you expect them to be as the front face of the resort.

Its a very sad resort to be in, food is pathetic. Even the staff is very sad.
Breakfast is awful. Never stay there to have a good time.
There are many resorts/Hotel available in the same value with better services.
Who serves you egg curry in morning breakfast, a biryani costing 300 is not even a bowlful with pathetic preparation.

Room Tip: No value for money for money

We stayed here because our friends had already booked a room here. Our experience here was very poor overall. The hotel has a strict "CANNOT DO" policy. Anything you ask them and they will refuse you. The hotel rooms weren't very clean and there is frequent electrical outage (not a very good thing when AC shuts down for hours considering Goa's hot and humid climate).

You best stay away from this place.

Room Tip: Do not get a room in the "Green" suites.

Hey All:

My family and I had the wonderful opportunity to stay at Palmarinha or Palma as it is called by the locals for a whole week and we simply loved every second!!

This place is centrally located, just a short drive from the Calangute beach, and has a host of famous restaurants (Infantaria, Florentine, Wok & Roll, L'Orange...etc), and many places to see, all within a short distance.

You can rent a bike on the premises itself, and that is one of the best ways to explore and enjoy Goa!!!

What I really appreciate about Palma is, despite the frequent power-cuts and water shortage all over Goa, we always had 24-hours supply!!! Hats off to you!!!! Keep up the good work!!

A problem faced by some guests was unavailability of swimsuits. Though one can purchase this a short distance from the hotel, it would be a great idea to include a store/supermarket on the premises.

Would definitely visit again!!!!

Rock On!!!

Room Tip: Rooms at the Blue suite are quiet, have easy access to the pool, as well as a neat garden for the ki...

a average hotel near calangute beach especially if you are looking for a cheap option.food is average and restaurant is a bit isolated so can be a bit scary at night.
though rooms are quite spacious and swimming pool is there but choose a better option near baga or anjuna beach.
We travelled in Sep 2012.weather was pleasant and areas were not that crowded.Though enjoyed a lot as we got a scooty the first day and were free birds..

Room Tip: if you are with family go for a suite

We had vacation there with my sister.
For 2*, hotels very clean and polite personal.
They have free transfer to the Beach.
of course it's around 40 min to the beach, but we used transfer or walking..because we came to see everything around there, for us walking was the best way and , of course for our bodies.
If next time I decide to go to Goa..I will choose Palmarihna!!

Stayed in 1BR Suite and it was quite comfortable.
Room was clean and well maintained.
Resort has 2 pools and both are good .
Looks like an old apartment building from the outside which gives a negative vibe but nothing to worry. Interiors are good :)
It's must to have a motorbike / car if staying here else you will spend a lot on transport as this is about 2-3 kms form Calalgute / Baga Beach .
Can't comment on the food as I always ate outside.

Room Tip: Try for the rooms that have a Balcony facing the big pool. These should have a better view .
