      Historical Traveler Reviews Majorda Beach Resort

      Nice, friendly hotel

      from

      The Majorda is a good location being on a lovely beach and 30 minutes away from the airport. The beach shacks and the restaurants especially the Pentagon offer really cheap nice food which is alot better value than the hotel which can be said for most hotels throughout the world. I could not fault the service and friendliness of the hotel staff. The facilities are also good but the bathrooms could do with a deep clean and refurbishment, probably would say that the hotel is more of a 4 star than 5 star. The hotel asks guests not to bring their own food and drinks especially bottled water into the rooms from outside the hotel which I think is wrong and the tea and coffee facilities within the room should be free.

      Enjoyed my stay

      from

      The Majorda Beach resort was an enjoyable and relaxing hotel. It is one of the oldest resorts in Goa and therefore, it is looking a bit "tired" ie peeling paint, aged decor. However, a refurbishment is planned soon.

      The rooms are comfortable and the staff very friendly. They organise "theme" nights most nights ranging from fish night, stir-fry night etc, which you can particpate in, or not. Personally, i stayed away from the hotel in the evenings, and frequented the beach shacks and local hotels (the Cameron beach shack does good food, as well as the "Pentagon" restaurant outside the front of the hotel, and "Fusion", an upmarket and therefore more expensive restaurant offering pasta and other high quality food.

      All in all, the hotel was a pleasant place to spend time in Goa, and we really enjoyed ourselves.

      Better than expected

      from

      Stayed in this hotel for 2 weeks during November and found it to be a very well run and friendly hotel. The facilites are excellent and you cannot fault the cleanliness of the hotel or the helpfulness of the staff. Only moan would be the cost of drinks and foods in the actual hotel but there are some good restaurants and beach shacks right outside. Would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the South of Goa.

      Loved the Majorda

      from

      During the 1st week in November 2005 myself and my family stayed at the Majorda Beach Resort in South Goa. It is a 5* facility so fairly pricey but comparable with other similar hotels. The location of the hotel is great i.e. beachfront and where the beach is not at all crowded. The whole complex has a lovely feel about it and the breakfast area is in a really nice part of the complex. The facilities and service at the hotel were great and we had no real problems. Other positives were the really excellent and cost effective room service.

      A few things on the down side were the extortionate cost of bottled water. Since clean water is a basic requirement of most of the clientle of the hotel, either they should provide filtered drinking water free of charge or cost-effective bottled water. It may be the same in all 5* facilities. Never mind, if you stay here, just walk 100yds down the road and buy you bottles at the local shop. Also, getting a taxi anywhere is quite costly. However, since Goa is quite rural, there aren't hoards of taxis outside the hotel, so you have little choice

      Overall, I would highly recommend this place for couples/families alike.

      PS: if you are catching a flight from Delhi to Goa, try SpiceJet - fantastic and can book online etc

      Good Hotel / Relaxing Holiday

      from

      This hotel was apparently built in 1989. Most of the hotel is well kept (99%) but you can spot some bits that have worn - But that is No different from Florida ! Rooms were spacious / aircon worked well

      The staff are excellent and will do anything asked. Small tips are appreciated.

      Generally the Food is excellent , Try the seafood...Tiger prawns are monsters !!

      Pool is nice, but most people put the loungers on the grass under the palm trees looking at the view of the beach which is 50 yards away. Towels are provided. Plenty of waiters.

      Nice beach, hotel has security which stops the hawkers becoming too bad. Once youv'e got a tan they tend to leave you more. Just talk to them, and say maybe tomorrow and they are ok

      Don't use the phone in the room....Very expensive...You can get phone in 'Town'

      Food outside the hotel is cheaper and you don't have to walk far BUT quality not quite so good. If you want really cheap go to north goa

      For a good cab driver walk 250 yards towards 'town', look for 'Tesco' on left and ask for FRANCIS. He's not a crazy driver/speaks good english/Won't rip you off.

      We will go again but not for a couple of years.

      Great service

      from

      Upon arrival we were given a welcome drink and greeting. The rooms were fairly spacious but were not adjacent which was requested by us because of our two children. But that was resolved the next day and our stay was made comfortable from there on. The pool was mostly empty and our kids had a great time there. The service was very good and friendly and their duty manager Raju was also very helpful in organising the local sightseeing tour. The food is also of a good standard and the breakfast and dinner buffets were huge and reasonably priced for the selection on offer. My only complaint was that for a five star resort they charge for the tea/coffee satchets that they leave in the room with the kettle. The beach was mostly deserted and is great for the morning walk. A family friendly hotel.

      Stay away

      from

      Dont get decieved by the 5star status.

      Strange noises, cheap rooms and look. Not so friendly staff.

      Bad plumbing: we got brown water because of some plumbing repairs, and we weren't even told. We actually took photographs of the brown water coming out, some how they didn't get developed properly.

      Package is ok, since food, short cruise and tour is included for the price.

      But we strongly recommend NOT to go here.

      Uk 5 star is not Indian 5 star

      from

      We stayed here last year just after monsoon in October. We had been in Mumbai for two months so we where used to the way of life and standard of hotels. We arrived at the Majorda and the reception was lovely and we were given a welcome drink. We were then taken to our room which was an outside room, i think it was a Villa but there was empty Bacardi Breezers on the balcony, the bathroom was mouldy and the bedspread all ripped. We went to reception and told them we wanted to move hotels(we were already staying in one of the top rooms). The upgraded us to the Villa, which was pretty much the same but we decided to make the most of it. You have to remember you are in India so what we think is five star is not what they think. The breakfast buffet was nice and the pool was pretty empty most days. The waiter would do almost anything for you as well. The hotel has a section of beach with some sun loungers. We went here most days the only thing about this is that a lot of local men come down to the beach and blatently stare at you, so some days we headed back to the safety of the pool. Watch out for the local cows that also come down for a swim!! The food in the beachside restaurant was to very nice and really reasonable, so you could have lobster every night if you wanted. I did enjoy our stay, helped by the cheap as chips drinks in the mini bar but just be prepared

      Fantastic Hotel

      from

      Our first visit to India and so we thought we'd play it safe by staying at a 5 star hotel and we weren't disappointed.

      The staff were friendly, the food was lovely, the place was spotlessly clean - what more can you ask for!

      If I had any criticism at all it would be that the beds were extremely hard and we ended up putting two matresses on top of each other for comfort but I understand that standards are different in India to what we experience here and so this wasn't really a problem.

      There were several good restaurants in the village and a number of shacks on the beach all serving lovely cheap food and beer!

      We stayed at the beginning of the season and so the hotel wasn't full, there was plenty of space both around the pool and in the gardens to sunbathe both of which had waiter service and so you didn't even have to move for a drink or snack, it was all bought to you.

      We would definitely stay at this hotel again - brilliant.

      Friendly staff, great food

      from

      On our first visit to India, the Majorda Beach Hotel was a lovely surprise. From the welcome we received on our arrival and throughout our stay, the service was friendly and, most of the time, efficient. The food in the restaurants was superb too. Some of the outside areas viewed from the balcony needed some work, but we were there right at the beginning of the season (in fact before most Uk companies start travelling there!) We would definitely go back!

      ... a couple of shipwrecked looking lucky boys who run around all day and
      play, what a childhood! The restaurant only serves fresh vegetarian Italian
      food, which is true to form, and how ‘mama would have made it’ !! There are
      lots of classics and some new treats too with lashings of Acai and hemp protein
      powder in the juices. The salads are ridiculous and we’ve been gorging on these
      as well as superb tasty bruschetta, oh and then there is ...

      ... plate outside the restaurant. Our first clue that something was to go amiss was when the owner of the restaurant started bartering over the price he would charge us for the fish. The final price was Rs 200 each for the four of us totaling £8 for a WHOLE tuna, eyes and all. We sat down famished and a tad grumpy, so we decided to play cards to take our minds off the hunger pangs. After two rounds of 'the old maid' dinner was finally served. Our whole tuna ...

Amongst the locals was a lovely lady called Rosa, who was originally from Newcastle but now lived in Goa for most of the year. Our Rough Guide (book) promised big things for Goa and our experiences didn't really live up to these expectations. However Goa is a big place with hundreds of beaches so we didn't see much of ...

      You know that place, the place in your day dreams when it's raining and you're a bit over work and you wish you were relaxing on a beach in a distant place. The kind of place you can disappear to for a while and just soak up the atmosphere. Well this is the place, sure it might not be the quietest beach in the world but it has the mojo only a popular beach can give. As we skip from one beach hut it only gets better, the new place is again further down the ...

      We're all safe and sound still. We're in Goa in a town called Agonda, located in the south lower peninsula of India and referred to as "India's Hawaii". Isabel and I are sharing a hut on the beach and Caleb and Josiah are in the hut next to us. They are clean and have functioning bathrooms and showers. We are directly on the beach, facing the ocean and paying ...
