“My 1st trip to goa”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2014 via mobile

It was my 1st trip to goa, and we decided to stay in marinha...as soon as I entered the resort, my eyes were wide open♥ Resort has a beautiful property...along with all rooms overlooking 2 lakes. It is located at peaceful location . Food isover all ok.each room has private Balacony to relax with a superb view. Rates were quiet decent as it was off season!service was ok. Resort is nearby frm baga and calangute which is like a 5mins ride from.the location. Over all it was a beautiful stay in marinha. I will surely come back to marinha whnevr its goa.

The plus points – the extensive & beautifully landscaped gardens overlooking 2 lakes & the very easy access to the Baga stretch (5 mins drive) & most North Goa beaches.

Other than this, I really cannot think of a reason to go back. The rooms are average, poorly lit & the facilities provided are minimal including no tea / coffee maker though (an empty) fridge is provided. There is only one plug point in the room which, in these days of multiple gadgets, is pretty inadequate. The wood in the particular room we were in was infested with little bugs which, while they didn't really bother us, got into everything you placed on the tables or cupboard. The cable TV in the room shows mainly foreign language channels & none of the popular English or Hindi news, movie or entertainment channels so, at the end of the day, if you want to just sit back & relax, there is nothing to watch on TV.

Food was good enough though nothing to write home about. The restaurant overlooks the pool (which overlooks the lake) & is a beautiful venue but very unimaginatively put together with a few plastic chairs & tables lined up against the walls.

But what really ruined the vacation for us was the terrible sleep quality we endured. I can honestly say that we didn't have a single night of good undisturbed sleep on all the nights we stayed there. The main mattress on the bed was hard as a rock so to compensate for that the management had placed a softer (but lumpier) mattress on top of the main mattress which made it even worse. The pillows were uncomfortable & way past their end date, the bed sheets were not made to fit over two mattresses & it was time for the blankets to be donated to charity. Most people come back refreshed from a break in Goa; we came back home tired, looking forward to our own bed & a good night’s sleep.

This is one of the older properties here in Goa. It is such a pretty property & I believe, runs full through most of the year, so I don’t think it can be too much of a charge on the management to make a few improvements around the property & in the rooms to ensure that their guests go back relaxed from Goa.

As for me, I certainly will be visiting Goa but not the Marinha Dourada

Room Tip: The rooms are on 4 levels - ground, first, second & third. There are no lifts so if you don'...

The stay at Resort Marinha Dourada was very pleasant. The facility is beautiful with excellent staff and service. Only point not in favor is that the beach is a good 1.5-2kms from the resort.

But, overall a big thumbs up for the resort.

I came and the rates on printed MRP was 1650 if we take package for 3 nights. We said ok lets see the room. We came back after seeing the room and some new front dedk manager come on front desk and said that he cant give room at the MRP but want double that rate as he says its his wish to give room or not. We were left stranded on the spot and the reception is so rude your whole vaccation gets spoiled. Dont ever come to this hotel is you want to enjoy your vaccation. Its not close to anything and yet the reception is so bad that its soo not worth it. The worst reception ever. The main culprit - Selwyn Darrito te front desk manager and the Advin dias who is the manager who cant keep his staff in check and do wrong things on their name.

I traveled here with my partner for a short vacation and it was so relaxing. With decent rooms overlooking pool, big property and nice architecture it instantly felt like we are somewhere in small town Europe. They have free breakfast which is OK nothing great to boast about but the staff is good. They arrange musical performances and other activities which keeps the guests entertained and busy. It is not very expensive and not very cheap either so would give you a nice and relaxing break without breaking your wallet.

We have stayed in this worst hotel for 3 days and it was more of a HOSTEL than a hotel.....Moreover the restaurant person named Francis behaved as a inhuman..... he doesnt have manners to talk to the people.. he passed racist comments and said he is the BOSS and no one can do anything against him.... the hotel policies were really pathetic....They didnt even provided electric kettle and water. Everyday we have to buy and room service of 10% on billed amount is charged everytime whether they serve in room or not....Room was also not that good and the price they want for booking is too huge if comapred to the services.
Nobody was allowed to drink near the swimming pool. and the cleaning person was very rude.... we used to go to Goa twice every year and stayed in many resorts but this one is really terrible....I never ever wish to go to this place. Very bad people and very rude/pathetic/cheap attitude. Please please dont go to this resort....it doesnt deserve to be called as resort.
