After three days of constant rain and closed restaurants in South Goa, we started thinking that the Indian west coast, during the monsoon, was a terrible choice for a Holiday destination. The second we arrived at the Deshadan we knew this was not the case. We had booked two nights through Expedia, and were put in a nice large room...

Visited this place in July with family. Location is reasonably good, pretty quiet and isolated. Walkable distance from the cliff overlooking the beach. We opted for the cottage with 2 bed rooms, which were pretty neat and well maintained. Most importantly, the food served for dinner was really good, expectedly the sea food was very nice. Service is top notch...

Stayed in the last week of may with family. Got an excellent package. Food was tasty.Staffs were very friendly.But please don't expect a huge resort like other deshadan properties. Only 16 pool facing air conditioned rooms and a central pool.The pool is only 4ft deep and very neat.Strongly recommend this resort for families and couples.

I booked this resort after reading the reviews in tripadvisor and it really turn out amazing. Its only 500mts from cliff beach, room service is very good. It has a small swimming pool which is well maintained (carry your own swimming suit). Rooms are very clear and staff members are very nice.
