We absolutely loved this place in the quite area outside Cavelossim. The best bit about this hotel is the staff and owners. They are so friendly and welcoming you feel like you have made new friends.

We booked this at short notice, and having read the reviews, were encouraged and hopeful to give it a try!! The delay getting through Goa airports visa process meant that we didn't arrive until 2.30am, and our initial reactions were to be honest, not great. There were several members of staff asleep on the floor in the reception area, who...

This was our 5th stay at Dona sa Maria. We return because - It is has a very friendly atmosphere, not like those large characterless hotels where no one speaks to each other. We like meeting other return guests who we have made friends with. The hotel rates are reasonable & it it a comfortable place to stay. The room...
