“Best Budget Hotel in Calangute”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2013

So I would like to start of by saying my stay in Dona Julia was almost a 5 on 5. Everything about the hotel from its rooms, service, staff courtesy and location was top notch. This Hotel is on Holiday Street which is where a lot of hotels in Calangute are. It is literally 2 minutes from Calangute beach so location is ideal. The rooms are excellent for the kind of money you are paying. Honestly you can't possibly expect a better deal. Its perfect for students and others who are going for a couple of days just to enjoy Goa. The rooms are spread apart so you can play music in your room without worrying about the other guests complaining. The hotel also has a good restaurant which is very modesty priced along with a bar.The hotel manager is though one of the things that stood out about the place, extremely helpful and polite. He goes out of his way to ensure you have a good time. The only downside about the place is room service is only once a day. Apart from this it is pretty top notch for a budget hotel.

I visited Goa several times but the last three visits I have been staying at Dona Julia. I don't want to write the same stuff like, "excellent service, good food, staff behavior, beautiful location, etc,." I appreciate the way Dona Julia maintains all these and strives to give better service, all the time, to all their guests. I can say its clean business. Making all the guests happy and satisfied with services is not an easy task. Dona Julia is different and they work differently, whilst they understand each and every guest and their requirements. I think I am getting addicted to this place :-). See you soon Dona Julia !

room was nice and stay is good. as a suggestion the hotel can arrange a person to carry luggage to room since the stair case is narrow.staff behavior is good . those who are looking for budget hotel to stay i will recommend it.

Our stay at Dona Julia was extremely satisfying. To begin with we had absolutely no trouble finding the place since there are multiple signboards to guide you. The A/C rooms were very clean with fresh linen and towels being provided everyday. The swimming pool had clean water without any floating or sunken debris. The staff was courteous and polite. Food served at their restaurant was up to the mark. I would definitely like to stay here again, and would also recommend this place to any one visiting Goa.

I recently visited Goa with my friends and had stayed at Dona Julia. The rooms were very clean and well maintained. The food served at the restaurant below is very yummy! We tried everything from fish curry rice to Chinese and were never disappointed. The resort also has a pool which is open at all times. So if you are in the mood for a quick dip at 11 PM in the night you can do that as well. Overall a great experience. I would definitely come back here in my next trip as well.

My name is Bhargava Krishna. I planned to visit goa where i have long weekend in August first week. I made my booking at Dona Julia Resort through [link removed] My Check-In Date is on 8th Aug 2012, non a/c standard room but later i converted to A/C Standard Room at Dona Julia Resort at my check-in time. I stayed for 3 Nights here. Very good hotel and reasonable prices providing Wifi, swimming pool etc. Staff of the hotel and Staff of the restaurant were very good and polite. Everything you can get here F&B, Bike and Cars. I am requesting to add some south indian dishes. I really enjoyed tour a lot. It is hard to leave Goa and this resort. Just 2 mins walk from Beach. I will recommend to my friends and all, 100% good place to stay in Goa. Thanks to Maria & Other Dona Julia Resort team.

Nice and clean rooms and very near to Calangutte and Baga Beaches, ample number of hotels nearby to dine and booze. The best part is that the staff is customer friendly, wearing a smile always when they speak to the customer. Worth going back to the same resort for my next visit to Goa
