Oceanic Hotel
Ranked #9 of 19 Hotels in Canacona
Reviewed 3 March 2014

I think it might be impossible to get through the winter ( especially the one we are having this year ) without our yearly fix of Les, Shiela and the Oceanic Hotel, and all that comes with it. I think most things have already been said in very accurately in previous reviews. We have been coming here for ten years. It's not like staying in a hotel, but like visiting friends in a fab location. This year we had 2 very memorable events put on by our hosts - a very successful and fun benefit day for the victims of the Chowdry building disaster. We were so privileged to be able to help and enjoy this. On our last night we ate and drank around the pool, whilst listening to fab Indian music. By day we relaxed under that lovely Goan sun on those fab and varied but very accessible beaches, eating delicious cheap food. When not on the beach were totally spoilt and entertained by Les, Shiela and all their wonderful staff
All our cares on arrival were swept away by great massages at the hotel, which are available on request
We have to keep coming back ...........

This was my first time at the Oceanic with a group of girl friends some of which had been coming for ten years !
I can see why.
This is a little Goan oasis run with such care and warmth by Les and Sheila. The staff are smiling and gorgeous and nothing is ever a bother.
We had lazy, late breakfasts in the courtyard every day before a stroll down to the beach. Then great gin and tonics before dinner...loved the one around the pool listening to classical Indian music.
A perfect blend of Goan charm and British high standards of service; all making for a lovely and relaxing stay. And not a mosquito in sight ! I hope to be back next year.

Our 5 night stay at the Oceanic was excellent...it was everything that we had hoped for and the fellow reviews on this site that we relied upon to choose it are bang on.
Les and Sheila...Ex Pat Brits have worked hard to create this place and their excellent staff (every single person we encountered) were competent,cheerful and a delight to be around with.
We had a smaller corner room for our first night which although well appointed was more suited for a single traveller.
Les promptly switched us to a larger, more Couple friendly room thereafter that was available...facing the dining patio .....thanks Les!

I don't understand the Oceanic being listed as one of the "TOP 25 BARGAIN HOTELS IN INDIA " , we paid the equiv of $100 Cdn/night which included our breakfasts and 1 lunch bill and some pops/beers. This was good value for what we enjoyed but hardly a bargain.
We stayed for $25-30Cdn/night/inc brkfst(sometimes lunch) at some other Indian Hotels throughout our IndiaTrip with equal or more amenities... which I would give the nod as potential
"Bargains".....just an observation...
Some South Goa "quirks", "minor annoyances" that we experienced nowhere else on our trip(thankfully) but here and over at Agonda Cottages on Agonda Beach:
power outages
water outages
wifi outages
Must be a Goa thing...oh well... :-)
If I had to criticize any aspect of our stay at the Oceanic, It would be the location, +'s and -'s...

+'s...... It was relatively quiet (some traffic noise going by on the road and a daily Muslim "Call to Prayer".... :-) , some monkey fights in the trees, dogs barking (but no Roosters!!) ... :-)
Patnem beach and Palolem beach were equidistant away, about a 20+ minute walk, each beach rewarding in their own ways, we enjoyed the walks...
We rented a motor scooter (thru Les and Sheila) for 350 rps/day, a bargain!, a great alternative to the Tuk Tuk thing...just about everyone! seemed to be doing this and the Beach roads traffic was NOT suicidal like it is all over the rest of the parts of India we saw.. (I promise) :-)

-'s....Patnem beach and Palolem beach are equidistant away, about a 20+ minute walk, some guests will not like this fact, it means doing a 50-70 rps Tuk Tuk ride each way... no biggie....but its reality...
no quick, casual stroll to the beach for sunsets, or sounds of surf etc
no real shops, conveniences close by...

I would come back and stay at the Oceanic for 4 or 5 days again... like we did.... and I would stay right on the beach for a few days....(at Agonda beach....++ )... like we did and loved it ! ....

Thank you Les and Sheila for a delightful stay!

Bob

We stayed at the oceanic for 5 nights of our 10 day trip to Goa...it was unfortunate that we had to move on but they were fully booked....& you can certainly understand why!
The welcome & service here is impeccable! Having been to Goa many times, I had grown fed up with the beach hut accommodation offerings-even the higher end ones seemed to disappoint. But to find such European standards at the oceanic has changed my views of Goa as a holiday destination. The rooms are perfectly formed with immaculate cleaning standards daily. Les & Sheila have recruited carefully and selected specialist local staff who truly bring Indian service to life. With a charming courtyard & secluded garden pool set high above the road level-you will literally have to pull yourself away to go & explore. It was so lovely to have the oceanic to look forward to at the end of the days that we did venture beyond the garden walls. If you are coming to Goa...this really is the only place to stay!

Nice little hotel near Patham beach. On quite road. Room all mode cons . TV fan air con. Didn't use air con as it wasn't free. Fan was good kept us cool. Bed sheets changed daily and room cleaned. Nice little pool only used late in afternoon for quick dip just to cool off after bike ride from local beaches. chilled out on balcony outside room very pleasant and relaxing. Enjoyed stay would have like to stay longer. Staff and owners very accommodating.

The location of this hotel is great. Its away from the bustling noise of Goa. Their service is also good. I love their strawberry and chocolate and the other things on the menu. The hosts are very kind and try really hard to make you feel at home. It DID feel like home after a few days.

I enjoyed my time here. I recommend this hotel!

Staying at the Hotel Oceanic was a wonderful experience. It's clean, comfortable and well located. Rooms are simple but with everything you need.The food is always delicious, and beautifully served by charming staff.After a day on the beach it was lovely to go back to a hotel with a swimming pool.
Although its quite late but thanks for providing a lovely and peaceful stay
