Very reasonable prices for a clean environment. Only reason I have put 3 stars, is the service. Nice people, but very slow and 'not thought through' approach to service. I would still recommend it, with a small dose of patience.

The Fern Gardenia, is a nice and quiet place to enjoy Goa. The resort was clean and green. The staff were lovely and helped us whenever required. The hotel location and parking space in front of the hotel add up to the charm. The prices were very reasonable and the food was great. We would definitely love to stay here...

We stayed for 6 nights and loved that 'coming home' feeling whenever we came back to the hotel after a busy day at the beach or sight seeing. The hotel environ was always quiet and perfect to relax in by going for a leisurely swim sipping pina coladas at the pool bar. Bathrooms were super clean and rooms cosy and...

Decided to splurge at Palolem, given the dozens of cheaper options available, and it was (almost!) worth it at Fern Gardenia. Pluses: Clean rooms, clean pool, chilled vibe, friendly staff Minuses: Below average & underwhelming breakfast, not-exactly-close to the beach. Tip: Get a vehicle, coz finding an auto back from the beach can be a b***h!

The hotel is very cosy and quiet. Rooms were very nice, but just too cramped. i wish they had a little more space to make the stay comfortable. Food was just about ok.

Compact, cozy, individual cottages with a feel good decor. You can have booze and chat next to the pool. Room service is impeccable, which is the most important thing. You call for something and in a minute it will be at your doorstep. It is just 1.5 kms from the main beach and they have a pickup/drop facility between 9am-6pm....

We originally booked The Fern for 2 nights just so I could use the pool. The check in was completely hassle free and we were shown to our cabin. All 18 cabins are situated around the pool area. This created a very homely and friendly atmosphere. The staff are amazing, I just wish that they all had name badges so...

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
