The hotel is very cosy and quiet. Rooms were very nice, but just too cramped. i wish they had a little more space to make the stay comfortable. Food was just about ok. I am a vegetarian therefore i am not aware about the sea foods options. It is near the beach no doubt, but then u need a vehicle...

Compact, cozy, individual cottages with a feel good decor. You can have booze and chat next to the pool. Room service is impeccable, which is the most important thing. You call for something and in a minute it will be at your doorstep. It is just 1.5 kms from the main beach and they have a pickup/drop facility between 9am-6pm....

We originally booked The Fern for 2 nights just so I could use the pool. The check in was completely hassle free and we were shown to our cabin. All 18 cabins are situated around the pool area. This created a very homely and friendly atmosphere. The staff are amazing, I just wish that they all had name badges so...

Where to start? We spent a whole week at The Fern Garden (as the tuk-tuk drivers call it) and we couldn't have made a better choice! At first my partner wanted to stay in a hut on the beach but I had issues with the cleanliness and safety of most places, so we opted for The Fern - great choice!...

Lovely hut in a pleasantly clean resort with hot water, good shower room and A/C. Green, mature, well kept gardens improve the feel and atmosphere. My partner loved it. I liked it but would have rather been by the beach. Good service but, in my experience, lacking the intimacy/personality that can be found elsewhere, which I enjoy. Breakfast at the...

We would highly recommend The Fern Gardenia. The resort was clean and quiet. The staff were lovely and helped us with local knowledge. The free shuttle bus from the resort to the beach was a great resource. The prices were very reasonable and the food was good. We would definitely stay here again.

We returned to Fern Gardenia for one night in January 2015 after previously staying here in January 2012. It was lovely to return and have a little quiet time after staying in Calangute however, we felt that the standards had dropped a little and the bungalows weren't as clean as they were a couple of years ago which was a...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Fern Gardenia Resort is a unique Eco - Sensitive Resort at Palolem beach in South Goa. Apart from being the only hotel in Palolem with a Swimming Pool & Pool Bar, the hotel aims at providing Luxury accommodations to the budget sensitive travelers, which is a first for Palolem beach. Located 1KM from Palolem Beach in South Goa’s Canacona district. About 60kms from the Airport, 2kms from the Canacona Railway Station and 30kms from Margao.The Palolem beach, also known as Paradise beach is one of the most picturesque beaches in Goa with crystal clear waters and white sand. This beach has fast become the best alternative to the crowded beaches of North Goa.As of now, accommodations in Palolem were restricted only to the shanty coco huts or guest houses along the beach belt or to the only expensive Star hotel in Canacona which is way beyond the reach of many. The Fern Gardenia is the only hotel in its category which sports all the comforts and amenities of a Luxury hotel but fits in the budget of the average traveler visiting Palolem and Agonda. ... more   less
