Resorte Marinha Dourada
Ranked #5 of 15 Hotels in Arpora
Reviewed 15 March 2014

We have stayed at this hotel for years - first came in Feb 98 - and we have stayed in other places in Goa, but we always prefer this hotel as first choice. I cannot agree with some of the reviews, this is a 2* hotel and has been voted the best 2* hotel in the whole of India - not just Goa. If you want a higher class * rating, then book into that class of hotel.
There is a lot of repeat bookings and long stays - why is that? The setting is peaceful, the staff are friendly and accommodating, the rooms are clean. Chillax, India - and especially Goa - is go with the flow. The breakfast is simple - varying daily, but normally including: Tea, Coffee, Fruit Juice, Cereals, Porridge, Eggs - fried, poached, scrambled, boiled, variety of omelettes - Beans, Tomatoes, Toast - White, Brown, Rye, and the local "Unod" bread, and not forgetting the Indian style breakfasts - Idli, Bhatore, Dosa, Samber, Chole and many more - which as a change, were delicious - help yourself. Fresh fruit is available, for which there is an extra charge normally Rs150/£1:50. - we once stayed in a hotel in Greece and only got Boiled Eggs and Olives for breakfast.
We are in our early fifties and most of the people that we were talking to, and socialising with, were younger than us - some in their twenties. Perhaps we are just happy to talk to almost anybody, we even spoke to some of the Russians - who, by majority where from the Ukraine, break the ice and talk to people, you go to a foreign country and at some point you will have to talk to the locals, why not talk to tourists from other countries as well. Your efforts will be rewarded - in our case with an invite to the Ukraine.
This hotel is an acceptable place to base yourself in Goa - and we, most certainly, will be staying here again, in the future.
The Marinha Dourada is a nice place to stay

After reading reviews I really didn't know what to expect so went with an open mind, I'm glad we chose the marinha dourada as me and my partner had an excellent 2 week holiday all round .
The hotel is very well run and looked after by the hundreds of staff and they all have a smile for you no matter what - our room was overlooking the pool on the 1st floor and I can honestly say I was impressed with the cleanliness and change of bed linen and towels was done every day .
We didn't have breakfast in the hotel we went to niks so cannot comment but we did have 2 evening meals which were very good , would definitely recommend this hotel if you want a nice quiet location even though it's a five minute taxi or moped ride to baga beach - we have booked to go again in December and will stop at Mandarin beach in one of the shacks for a night or two I can't wait ..

Stayed: November 2013, travelled as a couple

The hotel complex is big, off the road and relatively quiet, the rooms are large, cleaned regularly,
This hotel is for the over 65 club. Adjoining baga river with some lakes inside hotel premises.
Good swimming pool, great view from balconies.

been coming to this hotel regularly but may not return due to the increased occupancy of Russian visitors who constantly bang doors when they return after midnight and sit on balcony drinking to the early hours with no consideration for others . this is only based on our last trip but may be we were unlucky this time to have noisy Russian next to us.

Been here last Nov , 2013 for my anniversary . No welcome at the entrance , highly un-professional staff . The room belongs to the 80's with old air con and subtle lighting .

The worst part is the breakfast . Only Foreigners are treated well here and taken care of . Indians are just not needed as per the staff .

Such racism goes on here in this so called Resort . Please dont waste your time and money on this property .....

The sun beds on the sunny side of the main pool are reserved by 0500 and some guests do not pitch up to the "reserved" subbed until 1030! Early risers do not get a chance to get a sunbed. Your staff should. E encouraged to remove towels from unoccupied sun eds and let the other guests have a chance to get a sunbed.
