... week-end. I don't understand why Indian men wear their undies and singlets when they go for a swim, it's not as though they don't sell board shorts, we noticed plenty displayed in the shops down by the beach. Maybe it's their answer to budgie smugglers. On the other hand the few women we did see in the water were all fully clothed. I was quite taken aback when I was asked if I would mind having my photo taken with 2 very seedy looking men. If me at ...
... road trip.The Hotel Santiago is very pleasant, I think we are in the cheap seats, but that's ok it has a swimming pool which I know I'll be enjoying over the next couple of days. We met up with Santo and the rest of the group for a farewell dinner, tomorrow most of the people will be heading home, I'm glad that we opted for a couple of extra days in Goa it feels good to have no particular place to go and no schedule to ...
... pulled from the sea earlier, were in fact ''body bags''. Calmer beach on the cards next time, I reckon.
The ''beach party'' season was growing to an end, mainly locals and Indian tourists remained in ''Baga'' for the nightlife, so after discussing our plans with some friendly bar men in the ''Reggie Tent'', which had drawn us in with it's pumpin' tunes, we decided to enjoy the music, the sea breeze, the cheap beer and shisha and see what the night ...
... update as we had quite a busy day today and I really enjoyed both Panjim and Old Goa. Well yesterday was really fun as we went to Pat and Graham's beautiful villa in the evening then went to a local restaurant and tried all sorts of things I'd never eaten before so that was great. So this morning we woke early and took the bus to Calangute (nearby) and had a cheap Indian breakfast at one of the local places by the bus stop. I thought it was great ...
... say I was at a good part of the book so I took on new tactics. I buried my head in the book, put my shades on so they couldn’t make eye contact and kept reading no matter how much they tried speaking to me. It was tough but it seemed to be working. Kirsty had done the clever thing a while ago and plugged herself into her iPod and pretended to sleep. I could see all the beach sellers coming with the corner of my eye and hear them, but I just kept my head ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Resorte Marinha Dourada Arpora
Great value - great hotel!
£600 for two weeks from England - what more can you ask for!
Clean rooms with showers, air con, TV etc...
Nice pool and bar. Fantastic tailor and jeweller on site - absolute bargains.
Great location overlooking a lake (and not forgetting the local elephant who works in a nearby field.) Trust me this is important - i've been to Goa a few times and many hotels (even the nice ones) are lovely inside but the minute you step outside it's like a building site, rubble everywhere....
The food is good - nice snacks - anyone who stays in to eat is mad as food in the restaurants in Goa is amazing! Do not go all inclusive anywhere in Goa!
To sum up.... great value hotel, you will stuggle to do better for your money anywhere in the worls.
Marinha Dourada Baga
Stayed here a year back, clean neat place, large fridge, good breakfast but ofcourse the basic.
Close to Baga beach.
Hotel rooms, clean and basic amenities okay.
Food lousy. You get better food outside the hotel.
Excellent hotel. Friendly and caring staff offering a first class service. The grounds with the ajoining lake makes this an idealic location. It is situated in my opinion, away from the hustle and bustle of Baga, with an excellent array of restaurants in Arpora. This is certainly better than the 2 star rating given in most brochures.
Quiet Hotel close to attractions
Have just returned from 2 weeks staying at the Marinha Dourada.
It is a basic hotel but very clean and it appears, to be one of the better hotels in the area. There is not much in the local area that you can walk to so would get a taxi everywhere which you can get from outside the hotel and at standard rates.
Would recommend staying in the annex rather than the main block as it is much quieter and less over looked.
The staff were nice and helpful especially the guys at the pool. The staff at Reception and Security were always very friendly but felt that the restaurant staff could have been a little better.
The tailor on site is also very good and made some great clothes for us.
This hotel is constanlty overbooked. Every week travellers are forced out into other hotels around Goa (none of which are of the same quality as Marinha Dourada). They tried to bump us on our arrival but we had a sit in in the managers office and refused to move until we were found rooms. In at least one instance the owner is moving travellers into another hotel that he owns (so he is being paid Marina Dourada rates by the travel companies for his other, not as high quality, hotels). I spoke to the reps of most travel companies when I was down there and they are fed up with this situation as well. The hotel itself is great (if you can get a room!)
this hotel overbooks by 15 rooms and tour operator thompsons does not let you know untill 2 days before even though you book 11 months in advace
Peace at last
beautifully situated, clean and quiet. no radios or discos blaring all the time. still near enough to baga for night life. staff excellent. will be vising again
Just peaceful & so delightful.
HI to all. we have just spent 2 wonderful weeks at the marinha dourahda in arpora GOA this Hotel should be a 3 star as we enjoyed a very comfotable vacation. we were looked after so well that we just want to return ASAP SO go to goa and enjoy while those looking after you enjoy it too.
Spotlessly clean, very helpful and friendly staff , beautiful setting , everything you would want will be returning in Febuary
We have been to the Marinha Dourada 3 years running and will be returning this December again for another 4 weeks. Excellent hotel to stay in, rooms basic but pleasant, staff really helpful and friendy, got a nice restaurant and bar area, located 5 mins away from beach and busy areas which makes it peaceful and relaxing.
