Will start with the half board it is not you get an allowance of 250 rupees each per day and with the overpriced and poor food it's false advertising on the part of the tour operator.As for the rooms we were put in the cell...More
This was our first visit to the Dona Sa Maria and we were very happy with it as a base for a great holiday.
We chose it because we wanted something not too big and authentic - we weren't after gated five star luxury.
This was our 2nd visit, after staying there last year. Once again we found the staff open welcome and friendly.Rooms clean, water hot and linen changed regularly.most people we met at the hotel were returnees which speaks for itself,If you want to stay in an...More

Yes there are trips a rep usually calls at the hotel most days or sarifino will point you in the right direction. The trip to the waterfall and spice garden is nice I think that worked out about £40 each. You can do Taj think thats a 3 day one and approx £400 each. We did the triangle one year for a week and then 2 weeks goa. The triangle trip was amazing and well worth it we booked that in this country. A day to old Goa is worth trip just to experience the train sarafino will organise taxi to train station and the train journey costs about 20p for half hour trip ...we usually get a taxi back which works out about £25. We went on house boat which was really nice apart from the wailing from approx 7pm until 6am with fire crackers going off so not much sleep that cost £180 for two fabulous sunset and sun rise evening meal and breakfast included pay for alcohol or take own like we did. We hire a scooter from Joe just down the lane and that works out about £20 a week you do need an international driving license which you get from uk main post office its about £8 if you dont have one you will get fined on the spot which i think goes into police back pocket. Lots boat trips usually someone at Dona organises one ...there is plenty to do or just chill ...hope you have a fab time :)

There were no Yoga sessions at Dona Sa Maria last year when we were there. However there are several places offering Yoga at Patnem & Agonda a little further south than Cavelossim & they seem well established down there.
When we were there last year a couple from Dona Sa Maria went to a Yoga session in , or near Cavelosdim, early one morning & they told us it was very poor, they thought the teacher was " making it up as he went along "! Our sons girlfriend did a yoga class at Patnem & said it was good. Best of luck.
