“My favourite beach in Goa”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 November 2012

Agonda is my favourite beach in Goa and the Dunhill Beach resort is THE place to stay in Agonda. A great ambiance, mouth watering food and just a stone's throw away from the beach, this hotel is a charming family run property that is second to none in cleanliness and hospitality. While I haven't been there in a while, I pray that old man Menino has recovered completely from his open heart surgery and is doing well.

We went to Agonda this October, with the sole intention of being on the beach all the time and needing the resort only for sleeping. We really wanted beach huts, but most were in construction and only a few were open. We went to Dunhill and were not disappointed at all. FIrst thing to say is that though this property looks a bit old from outside but all rooms are freshly painted and refurbished from the inside. We took their budget rooms and were surprised at how well maintained they were. Special thanks to the resort people who seem to take cleanliness very seriously. The rooms and the towels were spotless and the staff very were friendly and like family. The only downside is (as someone has rightly pointed out before) that there is no beach view. But thats alright, considering the beach is maximum a 30sec walk form you rooms. They do have a beach facing restaurant. All in all I will come back to stay in the budget rooms (INR1000/USD20 per night, could be off season rates?) which I felt were very good bargain. Will I take the AC / Deluxe rooms? Maybe not, might prefer looking for beach huts at the price. But thats my choice.

Room Tip: Budget rooms are good bargain.

During our visit in March 2012, we had our dinner here on recommendation of our taxi driver and it's the best place to eat in Agonda. We returned here on the next day also for another dinner. They have an extensive menu and the service was prompt and the food quality and taste were simply awesome. The location is another plus point. One can enjoy the beautiful sea and the great food together.
It's expensive compared to other nearby places but so is the food. Also, they cook in mineral water which increases the cost. Among all the restaurants in North and South Goa, I found this to be the best.
Before going, we tried to do advance booking for stay here but we did not get 4 rooms that we needed. Only 3 were available, so we had to book in other places. Wish we could stay here.

We bargained the rent to 1300 per night for AC room. The rooms were clean with towels, soap etc. All in all, its a good place to stay especially because the others around are more expensive than Dunhill. So, it does turn out to be economical. The rooms are not sea facing, though we were hoping that they would be. The people are nice. They don't accept cards, so ensure you carry cash with you while leaving!

Dear Guest
Thank you for appreciating Dunhill Beach Resort.
You visited us during our closing end season i.e. May 2012 and we were giving our guest off season discounts during this period.
We have noted your observation and we have installed a card machine for our Guests this year.
As you noticed our property extends from the roadside to the beach side and our Restaurant is beach front. We hope you can visit us also during our main season and enjoy the hospitality at Dunhill Beach Resort !

We had a wonderful time in Agonda beach as we stayed four nights at Hotel Dunhill. The room and bathroom couldn't have been cleaner, and were cleaned every other day. The bed had a big and thick matress, which made it extremely comfortable to sleep in. The room further offered a very refreshing escape after the hot days at the beach, as it was equipped with a fan and AC. All this we got for the price you pay for more basic accomodations over at Palolem beach - Agonda is cheaper in general than nearby Palolem, and also way quieter .

You just need to cross the town's little main street to reach the hotel's restaurant at the beachside. The food here is very tasty - we found it the best eating option in town together with the nearby H2O restaurant, particularly as the smaller restaurants didn't serve most of the food they had on their menus anymore as we were approaching the end of the season. Hotel Dunhill's beach restaurant was still well frequented, though, and still managed to offer very much all the items presented on its menu.

There is WiFi both in the hotel area as well as in the restaurant, however due to heavy rains in the night prior to our arrival and a malware attack on the WiFi router on the following days, the internet connection wasn't working properly for most of our stay.

The location of the hotel is very good, towards the southern end of the beach, with small grocery stores and internet cafes within walking distance. Unlike Palolem, Agonda even has an ATM!

The hotel can also assist you in renting a scooter or arranging a taxi, however you may find the same services at lower prices elsewhere in town.

This is a really good accommodation in Agonda. The beds are comfortable, it's clean and the staff is really helpful and friendly. The hotel is located about 150 meters from the beach. Down at the beach, the resort has it's own top class restaurant. We were really surprised to find a restaurant like this in a tiny village like Agonda. The food is excellent, and the staff is amazingly friendly and service minded. If you go to Agonda, we would recommend this place without doubt.
