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.

Looking out over the water where the sun touched the horizon it shone pink and the sky divided into lines of yellow and orange before it turned grey and then back into clear blue mottled with clouds outlined in gold by the light from the remaining sun. It's very beautiful, the moment slightly funny ...
... the trains without the help of a guide though, as it's a bit of a challenge. Say, for example, your train's due at 6 a.m., the number (that's on your ticket) comes up on an overhead board. Normal, you might think - but there's a twist (isn't there always?) - several other trains might pull up and stop before the one that's advertised on the board! So each time one pulls up, we're all braced with our luggage ready for the battle to board the train, meanwhile Santo ...

Just bare with me a moment as I need to hop up on my soapbox. The Australian government has introduced a carbon tax. I'm sorry but that would have to be the biggest joke of all times when we have seen what we have seen over the past 37 days. How they can justify that a tax ...
We were up at 3.30am this morning to catch the train to Goa. Officially this is the last day of our epic 37 days unplugged in India. By the time we get to Goa we will have travelled 11,818 k's Where has the time gone, my head is so full of everything that we have seen and experienced. Maybe the 13 hour train journey will provide us with plenty of time to reflect back on our adventures. It was a 1 1/2hr drive to the station to catch the 6.30am train, I lost count ...
