"Beginners bad luck" Dona Alcina Hotel Tip by numnuts

Dona Alcina Hotel, Goa: 121 reviews and 2 photos

  mushrooms in the loo
by numnuts

It appears most first timers to Goa choose this hotel, as it is modestly priced. It is very basic and has suffered from neglect, if you opt for air conditioning, the only thing louder will be the nightly cockroach race around the tiled floors, I found a mushroom growing out of the back of the shower room door. Its only saving grace is the reception staff, who in true Goan style are absolutely attentive, and courteous to a fault, the hotel was the only real downside to our stay, you can do better. I feel sorry for the staff, but you can't make a silk purse out of a pigs ear.
