Where to begin, as my heading explains the complete holiday experience was fully down to the hotel,area, staff and management, (Serafino & Puri ). In my opinion, having travelled extensively in the world in 4&5 star hotels,for example, Egypt,Tunisia, Turkey, Barbados, Mexico, Dominican Republic, Jamacia, Brazil and many other European countries, (which excludes me from the stated Costa Del Sol...

Firstly, In answer to negative reviews, did not the people complaining on trip advisor have the opportunity to discuss and resolve problems with owners Puri and Serafino whilst there.Why wait until returning home and giving no chance for owners to put matters right at the time.The rooms are basic but spotlessly clean,pool is clean and very well looked after. Staff...

We have returned from our 13th visit to the Dona Sa Maria and have enjoyed ourselves thoroughly and already planning our 14th visit. This year we stayed over Christmas and new year with our daughter son in law and two grandsons. I was a little apprehensive as a family because when holidaying together we usually go to Spain or Portugal...

My wife and I stayed at the Dona Sa Maria during peak season Christmas/New Year 2013/14, chosen mainly as a base to explore that area of India, to avoid Calungute, and because of some surprisingly good reviews. Compared with what we thought we might get we were pleasantly surprised. LOTS of return visitors, almost exclusively retired couples from 'up north',...

Visited Dona Sa Maria for two weeks in January 2014. We stayed in an annexe down the road which was spacious, clean and quiet. We enjoyed the wide variety of evening meals on offer which were excellent value. We found the basic breakfast adequate for us although there was a selection of additional items available at very reasonable prices. The...

We went to this hotel just before Xmas 2013, I think it's the most relaxed holiday we've ever had. It's got a lovely pool area where you can spend the day in gorgeous sunshine having a swim and a coffee or cold drink from the restaurant at the side of the pool, or maybe have a massage.The food in the...
