Best in the budget
by Uttrakhandi on
The sea-facing room with a private balcony , lots of natural light , unobstructed view just a few steps from the Dona Paula on the main road is more than a budget traveller can get in a popular destination near Panjim . Although food is not served to order , one can get it from some food/ joints nereby . Highly recommended for solo, couples & small groups . Another bonus is you can enjoy the bus ride to Panjim only for INR 10/- every 15 minutes from the bus stand Opp . Raj Bhawan .
Serviced Apartment - Zuari View
by NDatta on
This is a private property 2 minutes from the Dona Paula Jetty owned by an NRI Family. Excellent location except for the fact that renovation of the approach road from Dona Paula Circle to Jetty is underway. So no vehicular Traffic till jetty except for two wheeler s. I think it will take another 6 months for completion of the Project. Other wise a nice location, clear sea view accommodations. Nice place to visit. They will provide sort of no frill breakfast too. Positives : Nice behaved Manager and two room service guys from Assam. Excellent !! worth staying for people on short trips. It is Opposite to IDBI Quarters ( Sagar Darshan) , Hotel "O Pescador " is nearby. If you happen to be there do not miss cuisine at the Garden Restaurant on the Dona Paula Circle. That is exactly opposite the Auto Rickshaw Stand/ Dona Paula Police Station. Reasonable cost and excellent ambiance. Negatives : Little costlier accommodation vis-a-vis the discounted rate of hotels in the vicinity given the fact that this is a serviced apartment with its limitations. Nice Stay !!

I stayed in Zuari View in Dec. 13. Its a small Hotel which offers out-of-world view of Zuari river. Decor of hotel is good in terms of walls & furniture. Staff is also good. Manager was very helpful. I loved their guest house. Its a treat for a family or 7-8 people staying together. Dauna Pola gives a feel of serene as well as small town and also near to Panjim. I didnt like the blanket quality of hotel offered to me !! Recommended for 2-3 days stay.
Great location, value and service

Located at a 5mins walk from the Dona Paula jetty, by road its behind the Oceanography Institute. Its a remodeled bungalow with three levels above the ground and one below. Located on a hill one has views of the calm bay. We took a suite which was below the ground level and a double room on 1st floor. The Suite is really spacious and well maintained. It can easily accommodate 4 adults and has a equally big balcony with great views on the bay ahead. One can watch lovely sun rises daily from the room itself. The double room on the 1st floor is good for 2 people and has a balcony as well. They have parking for 2-3 cars only. As the road in front leads to the Jetty, there were a lot of vehicles and crowds, most likely due to the XMas season. However there was no disturbance in the room. They do not have a restaurant attached however there is a kitchen and one gets daily breakfast and tea/coffee on order. They have an arrangement with a local restaurant who deliver (albeit with a lot of delay). A bit of a variety in the daily breakfast would have been welcome. As we were served bread and omelette daily. Mr. Bony is the manager and I found him to be really proactive and warm. He coordinated with me well during the booking stage and also called in to recheck and guide us to the property. He takes time out to speak to the guests and also helped us with good suggestions on activities one can do.There was one permanent staff, Mr. Deepak, who was very courteous and prompt. They have a lady coming in earlier in the day to help with Breakfast, I managed to hire her scooter. He arranged an excellent half day trip (at 1800 per head) by boat, which included snorkeling off an isle, fishing and barbecue lunch on a lovely private beach. This is a must do and was the highlight of our trip. Panjim/Dona Paula lets one access the South and North beaches relatively easy. So if you want to explore Goa in all directions this could be a good bet.

This was my first vacation after my son's birth who is now 13 months old and is quite a handful... we were there with my parents and my brother and his wife... So it was 3 couples and a toddler... It is a 4 bedroom house with a living room, dining area and a kitchen and lovely balconies... soothing in every way... well kept, clean linen, very well done up... the staff was also very helpful... The view from the balconies is excellent... the place is well maintained and cleanly kept... Very highly recommended
Always Ask for sea view rooms !! Take dinner outside. Better you arrange for two or four wheeler on rental from nearby shop. Movement can otherwise become an impediment . Panjim is around 10-15 kms from teh place.

Take the bungalow if the group is large and if it is within budget.

All are sea view except one road view. Choose Sea View.

The room on the ground floor is spacious and has a great view of the Zuari river while avoiding the hassle of climbing the stairs.

Try the deluxe bay view room or the suite. They say the monsoon season is also a good time to come (I haven't experienced it but can imagine it would be magical from these balconies). Sea Pebble is a good restaurant (near the jetty) and the Prainha hotel over the road have a beautiful pool, which you can use all day under the shade of coconut trees for ~300 rupees.
