    Historical Traveler Reviews Resorte Marinha Dourada Arpora

    Great value - great hotel!

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    Reception helpful.

    Food lousy. You get better food outside the hotel.

    Goan delight

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    Traveller Beware

    from

    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!)

    Overbooks

    from

    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

    Fab Hotel

    from

    Spotlessly clean, very helpful and friendly staff , beautiful setting , everything you would want will be returning in Febuary

    Excellent Hotel

    from

    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.

    ... with two patio chairs in the other corner and lots of spiders in the bathroom, great! Haha. It does the job though, just need to remember to put the door alarm on the door tonight haha! Headed for the beach, Calangute is much bigger than Palolem, very busy and more commercialised with shops and tattoo parlours and western shops. We couldn't believe how busy it was, we were really spoilt in Palolem with peace and quiet. The beach was absolutely jam ...

    ... creating more wealth. Turns out they want more of the western lifestyle and many of us want the Indian lifestyle and spirituality. Anjuna seems to be a melting pot of young, wealthy Indians visiting from the cities, the locals who are mostly Catholic, the very poor and the Europeans and Westerners looking for the "holy grail". Whether that is a drug induced high or our natural state of peace and bliss. Enjoying the ...

    ... to get there, where to stay, what to see, where to eat whilst forever dodging all the touts just willing to take your money at any opportunity - it's utterly exhausting.

    We took a stroll up the beach to check out the area and saw all the construction that was underway.

    It wasn't long before we were approached by two women who were incredibly friendly. They were the wives of the workers and have set up their own little 'shops' in their homes selling t-shirts, jewellery ...

    ... However, to my sadness, it's not that easy to find this type of yoga, as meditation is more widely practised. I find it funny that India brought us yoga of the mind, but the West contributed greatly in bringing "posture" yoga into the forefront and helping to develop an environment for all walks of life to come into classes. We no longer have to be from the Brahmin (Priest) class of Indians to practice yoga... thank ...

    So we all had our goodbyes with our adopted daughter, Kate, and Santo. There were no hugs or kisses with Mark, who just waved and shouted a spitty sschcheerio. Didn't see the Canadians before they left and funnily enough, they didn't seek us out to say goodbye. Didn't see Lynette & Gary ...
