We stayed at the DSM from 4-3-12 untill 25-3-12 and had a fabulous 3 weeks at a very nice hotel/guest house. The surroundings are gorgeous with the hotel situated in a colourful comfortable garden with refreshing pool and bar area. The rooms are pretty basic as previously stated by others but you do feel at home very early on. The staff are attentive and pleasant with special thanks to Savio and Anita, Geoffry and Sidhu and also to the proud owners Serafino and Puri. There is a lovely restaurant attached to the Hotel where you are given 250 Rupes towards your evening meal but pay the extra for anything over that.
It is a 40 minute walk to Cavalossim "central" and 20 to the beach but we hired a scooter and were able to venture as far as Agonda and palolem (prefer Agonda) although was kept awake by the delinquent fruit bats hanging from the trees . I think a scooter is a must to avoid taxi fares and we paid 200 Rupes a day and the roads are pretty quiet.. Favourite shack was sea pearls,about 200 yards passed the Ramada where the food was excellent and inexpensive. We went to Mikes shack for a beach party on the wednesday and had a fantastic time and had the best curry ever, then we were driven home in a jeep along the beach which cooled everyone down.
Lunch at Joes Cove is a must which is on the ferry road next to the Sal.
Special thaks to the Crowd around the pool at the DSM who were all a good craic and plenty of laughs were had thanks to Steve who i think is still on his moped as sure i spotted him as we refuelled in Bahrain !!!!!. Can well reccomend this hotel and will be back some time in the future.
