Terrible food quality and taste. Rooms were very dimly lit with non functional AC and TV remotes. Bathroom door nob was broken. Overall a below average hotel as...

We couldn't fault this beautiful place. The setting was green and so relaxing to spend the day by the pool. The staff were attentive and helpful and served excellent cocktails! The food we ate there was really lovely, but we hired a scooter and went to the beach to eat a lot of the time for the sunset. The breakfast...

Nice rooms and courteous staff. Good restaurant. However, the restaurant serves limited menu and the taste is average. Also, the breakfast menu needs improvement. But the location of the resort is good. Beach is at walking distance.

The ambience of the place is excellent. Lots of greenery with each cottage being surrounded by lush plants. This gives each cottage privacy and a cosy feeling. As others have said the place is in dire need of maintenance. Lots of things are falling apart. The pool is fun to swim in but the tiles are wearing out. And the...

Cons - The room was quite small and the shower unit in the bathroom had practically no wiggle room. Not much variety in breakfast as well. Pros - courteous staff, the aloo parathas were awesome... ask for their strong masala chai and it is simply awesome. Their flying tigress is a cocktail one must try. Overall... check in if you...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Fern Gardenia Resort is a unique Eco - Sensitive Resort at Palolem beach in South Goa. Apart from being the only hotel in Palolem with a Swimming Pool & Pool Bar, the hotel aims at providing Luxury accommodations to the budget sensitive travelers, which is a first for Palolem beach. Located 1KM from Palolem Beach in South Goa’s Canacona district. About 60kms from the Airport, 2kms from the Canacona Railway Station and 30kms from Margao.The Palolem beach, also known as Paradise beach is one of the most picturesque beaches in Goa with crystal clear waters and white sand. This beach has fast become the best alternative to the crowded beaches of North Goa.As of now, accommodations in Palolem were restricted only to the shanty coco huts or guest houses along the beach belt or to the only expensive Star hotel in Canacona which is way beyond the reach of many. The Fern Gardenia is the only hotel in its category which sports all the comforts and amenities of a Luxury hotel but fits in the budget of the average traveler visiting Palolem and Agonda. ... more   less
