This is one of the nicest places to stay in North Goa if you are looking for something quaint, quiet & deliciously comfortable. It’s location is world class, with the most beautiful trekking trails around it.
The rooms are stylishly done, spotless and super spacious.
The staff and Susan, the owner, are so very warm and delightfully welcoming.
Moreover the place has impeccable service, yet feels like home.
This has all the makings of something that’s seriously charming and chic without the fuss.
We Really enjoyed our time here during the lockdown, we stayed for about 17 days~ In the penthouse suit, Mughal suite and garden room; all three spaces were winsome in their own way.
This place is so classy; anywhere else you would have to shell out a whole whole lot more to get this level of panache, service and location at a property.
Would greatly recommend this to all and sundry.

P.S: Susan is the most amazing trained aromatherapist, do try her treatments! And the food which is unexpectedly tasty!

I've been to Goa nearly 10 times now and this place made me the happiest. Right from its quaint location and architecture to the way the rooms were kept, we loved every bit of it. Each and every corner of the guest house looked beautiful, the staff was super sweet, and they cooked excellent food for us! I highly recommend this place because money-wise too, it's completely worth it.

Do take the walk from the property to Aguada Fort over the hill.

We were looking for a place that is close to the usual touristy places in Goa but also quiet.
We found this charming boutique hotel with only about 10 rooms tucked away past all the big brand hotels.
All the rooms were well appointed, spacious and clean.
You can definitely call is rustic, but very charming.
The ground floor rooms open up onto a little courtyard, which is also were you can have breakfast, a coffee or some snacks.
The team is very hospitable and accommodating. Food is local, good, wholesome.

Would highly recommend this to anyone who wants to stay a little away from the hustle and bustle, yet be close to the beach. A lot of restaurants, cafe and small shops are on the main road going through the town and are easily walkable from the hotel.
If you are traveling with friends try to book ahead and book a couple of rooms.

This is a Portuguese stye bungalow converted into a guest house. We took the Rajasthani Suite after looking at its pictures and were not disappointed. It has a beautiful sitting space and a very green and pretty backyard that's a part of it and is worth paying for. The morning light shines through the windows and falls directly on the bed making it appear beautiful in mornings.

The staff was helpful and we met the owner of the property as well. She's a lovely lady who suggested we take a short trek to a lighthouse from behind the property. It was a good suggestion that led to a wonderful day outing for us.

The location is stellar, this guest house is situated at about 7-8 minutes walk from the Aguada Fort and beach. We went there every evening unless it was raining and had a wonderful time. There are shops and convenience stores nearby making it easy to shop if you need to.

Overall, we had a wonderful stay for a week and would recommend it to others.

This place is a dream! It has the best patio surrounded by greenery secluded in an area where you hear nothing but your breath! It has an open kitchen to whip up some nice breakfast for yourself and a balcony to sit relax and read or listen to music.
The staff is super friendly and really welcoming felt like a home away from home.
The owner loves cute doggies who roam around the property so if u are a lover of luxury and nature then this place is for you.

The rooms are super clean and the caretakers also very helpful.
One of the best properties in Goa to stay for a peaceful trip.

We enjoyed our stay in this lovingly restored old Portuguese house hugely. Great service from a very personable team, excellent food on the premises for both breakfast and dinner and rooms that conjured up the best of colonial India. Really great value for money, and we would recommend this to anyone visiting Goa!

I have been to goa plenty of times before with my friends and have always stayed in Calangute or Mapusa with all the happening goan feel, getting exposed to the social and nightlife there, but this time it was very different :)
Thanks to Marbella.
I had been to goa for my honeymoon and we had a wonderful time. The staff is amazing, we had booked the Rajasthani suite, Sajjan welcomed us very well and also gave us a bike which was in a very good condition. Pascal, the best chef i have known, don’t forget to taste the food there, specifically Fish and Pasta were my personal favourites.
I would definitely recommend everyone to stay at Marbella, if you are looking for a secluded place with a different goan experience. I loved the staff’s gesture of making us feel at home, you don’t find such people in today’s world, i know this is exaggerative enough, but they were very down to earth :)
Lastly, if you are a dog lover, then it’s a cherry on the cake, meet sophie there ;)

If you want a perfect goan house set up, with stunning plants, flowers, delicious food, comfortable stay, hospitable and warm hosts - Marbella Guest House is your place to be!

Although it's located in the centre of Candolim, the house is at the end of a quiet & dark lane which is 500m from the main road. It gets quite dark in nights so having a bike/ car is recommended.

Sophie the doggo is the highlight!

This is my second visit to the Marbella guest house. I had visited several years earlier during the warm season. What brought me back was my memories of the beautiful location, the unique rooms, the lovely staff, the excellent food, and the small courtyard where I had breakfast every morning.

In this case I arrived in early July, which unfortunately is the monsoon season. However, the excellent staff led by Sajjan, contributed to a memorable stay. On this occasion I stayed in the penthouse, it’s spacious set of rooms complete with dining area and outside balcony. While the rain did not permit us to enjoy the balcony, the penthouse nevertheless was an excellent choice.

But most important, is the staff. They run an excellent kitchen, and are able to provide you with whatever you want. Sajjan made this trip memorable because of his suggestions of various places to visit. He and his colleague, Chetan, make sure that I got to where I wanted to go when I needed to go there. Chetan, an excellent driver, took us to various locations throughout Goa. Temples, the spice farm, the beautiful waterfall at Harvalam.

When you stay at Marbella you are staying with a family. People who care about you and Are knowledgeable about everything in Goa. Without hesitation I recommend you stay at the Marbella guest house in Goa.

Excellent property!!

Sajjan & his team did an outstanding job

It almost felt like home

The property in itself is very quaint, very pretty.

The rooms were large, well fitted, clean & had everything a traveller would require

The only area we were a bit icky about were the dogs.

Much as we are animal lovers & have many pets at home,..and we appreciate the owner's commitment towards Indies/stray dogs...

This was monsoon, wet dogs as pretty as they are, have a foul smell

On the couch & in the dining area...may not appeal to many people

Apart from that, the team was fantastic
