“5 star experience in a boutique hotel”
Reviewed 31 January 2011

We stayed with Lourenco and his staff for 3 nights in early January. All of the reviews are true - the guest house is beautiful, the gardens are very pretty, and nothing is too much trouble. We were walking down the lane one evening to go out for dinner, Lourenco passed us and stopped and gave us a lift - this is just a typical example of how he genuinely can't do enough to help you enjoy your stay. Lourenco and Freddie trained with the Taj group and it shows - they understand about providing all of the little extras to make their guests feel special. We loved it and will definitely return.

Got to Bougainvillea on the 18th of December intending to leave Goa by the 23rd, but we fell in love with the little guest house that we extended our stay till the 26th. The other reviews on Trip Advisor were spot on about how nice this place is. This is primarily due to it's owners Lourenco Silviera and his wife Annie. The rooms are quite a bargain and the suite that we got had a nice airy sitting room and a comfortable bedroom. The owners ensure that you're stay is comfortable and are happy to help you organise your stay so that you don't get ripped off. Since the hotel is in Sinquerim the best restaurants in North Goa are just a walk away (or if you're lazy like me a quick bike ride away). The beach is a short walk away and since the property is right next to a hill, the walk up the hill road is quite awesome. Do take the time to walk upto the little chapel on top of the hill, which has a fantastic view of the bay and has nice benches to spend an idle evening with a book (if you can tear your eyes away from the view that is).

They have a tiny restaurant, that primarily serves only breakfast, our quest to get a dinner there was unsuccessful but we were politely steered away to the other restaurants which as I mentioned are close by. This turned out to be a culinary experience eventually. All in all a great place, we hope to return again soon!

Everything that has been said about this Guest House is true, it is like an Oasis in the dessert. Lourenco and Annie, Freddie and all the staff couldn,t do any more for you. The accommodation is very clean with fresh linen, and fresh flowers and bottled water each day. I would recommend it to anyone.

Amazing place at a reasonable price.
The rooms are huge and immaculately maintained; Lorenco and his family and staff are efficient and are able to meet all your needs, including arranging motorcycles or a taxi (the default taxi is the one owned by Mario, who is friendly, punctual and maintains a nice clean cab.). Breakfast is available on all days, and if you let him no in advance, Lorenco can arrange lunch and dinner as well.
Location is outstanding--very close to Aguada and Candolim, and a short motor cycle trip to Clangute, Baga etc.
Stay here if you want to explore Goa on a bike, and stay avay from the suffocating 5 star culture.
