Prazeres Boutique Hotel is located 600 meters from Miramar beach, Goa. We are in a serene upmarket locality, Caranzalem, surrounded by lush green palms and fields.
Our hotel sits amidst an age-old architecture; a typical Portuguese house, that provides a sense of our old heritage culture, true to goan routes.
It is an 8 minutes drive to Goa’s famous casinos and a 10 minutes drive to Goa’s corporate hub situated at Patto, Panaji.
Our staff is well trained to handle any guest requests, in-room dinning service and housekeeping.
We are humbled to have scored a 9.1 rating on Booking.com for the year 2018.
Hi I am a tour operator by profession. Seeing and experiencing a hotel is part of my business. I look for a owner run hotel for my stay as far as possible but this one was a bad experience. I booked the hotel directly, originally from 4th Jan to 10th Jan 22 (5 nights), later due to unfinished work I extended my stay till 12th (2 nts more). At the time of booking I paid one night advance for confirming my booking and it was in writing (email and What's App) that the balance amount will be paid that the time of check out. Happily agreed by the "friendly" talker Ms Raisa, the owner's daughter who I never saw during 8 days though she and family stays in the same hotel. Couple of times I had some problem which could not be resolved by the staff I tried to call her on mobile and she did not pick up . It was between normal working hours. Earlier when I was booking the hotel she was quick enough to answer. The owner, Mr Prazares too pretends to be a friendly person. I will tell you why.... Once I extended my stay, room service man came to me that I should deposit room rent till original booking (4 nights balance). I told him to tell his owners that it is clearly written that I will pay the rest on check out. Next morning (10th) I called the reception lady and she told me to deposit payment for 4 nights! Again, I told her the same. The owner, Mr Prazares, sitting next to her, was handed over the phone and he also told me that I must deposit as per the rules of the hotel. (Which rules I dont know). I told him that I will pay at the time of check out and he said no this is the "rule" of the hotel. I wish they had made it clear to me during our email and What's App exchanges that in case of extending your trip etc etc.... I went down and deposited for remaining 4 nights and all extras. And I got my booking for remaining two nights changed to without breakfast. (Rs.250) per breakfast. I was told that I will get buffet breakfast. I can understand it is not possible when you have 3-4 guests per night on an average. But, the choice was Powa, Alu Puri, Samar Idli or Parantha. Powa and Idli (rice preparations) and Alu (potatoes curry) Puri (deep fried small chapatis of white flour - maida). I eat none of these for breakfast. I asked if they have cornflex with milk; the least I could expect in this situation. The waiter's answer was no. I told the owner later if I can get cornflex with milk next morning for breakfast. Yes, sure, they have it in the kitchen, he said. But, next day again, the waiter said he does not have it... On requesting the owner again then I got cornflex. Yes, omlette and bread too was there but only white bread. In the name of fruits 4-5 pieces of papaya every morning and a coffee and ready made tea. I used to order my dinner too from the hotel and also go the bar to drink some Port Wine. For my extension for 2 nights, I stopped ordering anything from the hotel, just room. Penny wise pound foolish as they say. They lost money from drinks, dinner and breakfast. I just used their room for sleeping, no extras. It's not a good marketing from the hotel owners especially knowing I am a tour operator and I could send them clients in future. Now, about hotel surroundings and room. Website of the hotel is very inviting. But, no internet connection on the 4th floor. Eventually, the owner shifted to me to the 3rd floor. No Sony Entertainment Channel (128 on Tata Sky). I am used to watching Ahilyabai the historical serial, otherwise TV is just 30 minutes news for me on NDTV English, nothing more. I got mad and then the owner ordered Sony channel for me. I was happy. You know what? On the first evening of extended night (10th Jan) Sony TV gone again!! Then, they ordered it for 2 nights more! Wow, cutting corners everywhere. Wooden flooring of the room is well appreciated but also the same flooring in the shower! You are bound to slip and possible cause you a fracture if you have applied soap or shower gel on your feet. "Controlled" tea/coffee/milk sachet in the room I was told. I had my own tea and milk powder and jaggery powder anyway for my morning tea. No balcony. Sometime the weather is so good that you feel like sitting in the open, no way. You feel like in a jail in such situation. The reason for no balcony I was given by the owner is that the clients leave balcony open and AC is running. That's not true. Moment you take card key out all lights are automatically shut. No Safe in the hotel. So, you have to walk around with your valuables... Cook was warned 3 times to put salt to a normal standard; otherwise, 3 times more salt. In fact, on the third time I told the owner if he makes it too salty I will return my dish next time. Then, finally salt got to a normal standard. I dont recommend this hotel.…
A very cozy , niche boutique hotel which is affordable, clean n super friendly staff who serve with a smile always They have excellent kitchen , ramp access for the needy , parking a mini bar etc .very centrally located very near to carnazalem beach,
What a shame. The Owner is actually a nice chap & the place is well built, but NOBODY seems to be paying attention to the details of actually RUNNING the hotel or taking any responsibility for delivering value for money. Exceedingly mediocre brkfst. Biting ants. Dust encrusted fans. Cobwebs. Bad pillows. Bad toiletries. AC not working. Black mould in bathroom. Also: the general area around the hotel is a back of behind nowhere (entirely lacking in charm), with surprisingly bad air pollution. Any one thing going wrong would be ok for this category of accomodation, but combined together, this really was a Fawlty Towers of Goa experience. At this price you'd get MUCH better elsewhere in the State. To top it off, after the horrible night, we booked a car, giving over two hours advance notice (and had actually mentioned the requirement the night before as well). Well, change of shift and nobody in sight with a clue when we checked out. This really messed up a second day. Just fed up with the place. Felt totally ripped off and holiday ruined. For service recovery, were offered a cup of ice cream. Seriously. That's it. Talk about adding insult to injury.…
This is situated 5 KM away from Casino Pride. The hotel is neat and clean but the service is very poor. Also the choice of food is limited in breakfast. You have to depend on hotel wifi alone. The staffs are not much efficient. The hotel has its own parking space
The hotel is close to Miramar beach and not very far from Panji. The rooms are nice and clean and have all the facilities . The staff is nice and helpful. Would definitely recommend for solo/ family travellers!
A quaint small hotel in Caranzelem. 15 minutes walk from Miramar beach. Good spacious suite rooms. Nice bathtub in bathroom. The breakfast was adequate but it starts at 8.10 am, which was not acceptable by any standards. Reception was polite and helped to arrange taxis for us
I was extremely welcomed in this Hotel! The owner spokes portuguese and immediately the receptionist told me he will want to welcome me. All staff was so friendly and satisfied all my needs. Very clean hotel. Good food.
We stayed here after we had a bad experience at Oyo, where they didn’t accept non-indian tourists, but didn’t let us know when we’ve done the booking; the people at Prazares were super professional, the hotel is spacious, clean and really beautiful; We would definitely love to come back again.
This was an amazing find for me. I was to live at a guesthouse nearby but the owner didn't show up at 6 am in the morning. I found this a few minutes walk away in Caranzalem near Panaji and I ended up staying for 10 nights. The owner, his daughter and the staff were amazing. The food was great and I would totally visit again. For those of you trying to find a clean, quiet hotel whose staff will bend over backwards to make your stay comfortable I highly recommend this hotel close to Panaji Goa.
My lovely wife and I spent two nights at this hotel when visiting Panjim. It's located near Miramar beach, a little way from the heart of the old town. But it's in a nice neighbourhood and it only takes 30 minutes to get to town on the local bus which passes nearby. Our room was really nice - spacious, modern and spotlessly clean. There was enough space for a comfortable sitting area which was a nice place to relax after a busy day. The views across open fields were also very pleasant. Moreover, having a bathtub was a real bonus! Breakfast is included and is pretty good although service was slow. We checked out early and they were kind enough to provide us with cut fruits, boiled eggs and juice the night before so we could have something to eat before hitting the road. Overall a very enjoyable stay. Great value too at less than ₹2,500 per night. Highly recommended.…
