Hello, we will be traveling to Goa for the first time in December for two weeks. We are a couple with two kids aged two and four. We have been recommended to stay in the South but after research I still don't know what area to narrow the hotel search down to.
We want to be within walking distance to a beach that ideally is calm enough for a bit of swimming as well as a variety of restaurants and shops. We'd like a clean and friendly hotel with a child-friendly pool and any extra family-friendly features are a bonus but don't want or need a sterile 5 star chain. We don't want to stay in an isolated location and want to be sure we can experience Goa. As you can guess night life is not a priority :-)
Any advice on which areas in the south sound most suitable for us?
Thank you in advance!
