I recently stayed 6 nights at Bougainvillea and I cannot disagree with all the previous comments: Lourenco is a great host and tries to let you feel home, organizing your perfect stay.
Congratulations, you really deserve all the good comments that you have !!!

Room Tip: Opt for the deluxe rooms

The location is perfect, just around the corner from the Taj Aguada. The property is on a quiet garden street, with a garden of its own. The rooms are top notch, spacious and perfectly maintained. The owner, Lourenco Silveira, is wonderfully capable and friendly, and arranges airport transportation for fair prices. (Disclosure - I stayed the weekend earlier at the Taj, and other than the pool, this B and B offers competitive services and much easier prices.)

Room Tip: I stayed in the top floor suite with its own verendah. There are stairs to climb, but the views, and the privacy, are worth it.

Were extremely fortunate to get a suite at the Bougainvillea Guest house for our holiday in Goa over Christmas and New Year and all those anticipated expectations were met threefold.

Lourenco and his most efficient team provide you with a most relaxing and comfortable base to access the delights of Goa.

What can we say about Lourenco that has not been said on numerous occasions....he is a terrific chap whose ethos is spot on re trying to provide the best he can for his guests and he succeeds brilliantly.

Throughout our stay he was always available if needed and gave some invaluable advice plus help re trips and local attractions, making our first Goan Experience a resounding success.

In addition the meals prepared by Freddie and supporting crew were all excellent.....the plaudits re his reputation in the kitchen and front of house services are fully deserved.

King Fish with Freddie's secret rub was extremely lovely and when accompanied by Tiger Prawns our first meal in Goa was really memorable.

Needless to say we were keen to try other culinary fare and were never disappointed by Freddie's food and service whether it be breakfast or evening meals......big thank you from us.

Would we return to Bougainvillea.......absolutely......having now had a flavour of Goa we will certainly return hopefully not in the too distant future.

Keep up the great work Bougainvillea and your top spot in Candolim is assured.

Room Tip: We stayed in suite 101 which lived up to all our expectations......second floor with a balcony overlooking the fabulous gardens. Whilst there we checked out other suites and all lovely and very clean.

We had a wonderful stay at the Bougainvillea in Candolim. Th owner/host bends over backwards to make sure his guests are taken care of. The staff is friendly, sweet, warm, and so helpful. They are like concerned family members. The location is great - away from the main crowds, but not so far away that you need a car. The main town and beach were only a 5-10 minute walk away.

The guesthouse is Portuguese in style, brightly painted in yellow, with lush gardens and beautiful foliage. Breakfast is served outside in the garden area, which is very pleasant. The rooms are spacious, with a separate bedroom (with bathroom) and living area. The only minor negative was the decor (mismatched textile patterns and color themes), but other than that, the rooms were very comfortable and clean, which is what mattered most. There is wifi at the guesthouse too, but only in the public areas.

Service was impeccable. Lourenco, the host, even drove us into the city for no charge when we wanted to visit an ayurvedic center. He also arranged for us to have our own driver, who picked us up from the airport, took us on excursions, and took us back to the airport.

The restaurant serves primary breakfast (for a small additional price). They offer lunch and dinner as well, but you would need to reserve and order in advance so they can shop for the freshest ingredients. The meal we had for lunch at the Bougainvillea was one of the best meals we had during our entire stay in Goa. Freddie can cook! Highly recommend their restaurant.

If you want to stay in a safe, friendly, comfortable, clean, and reasonably priced place close to the beach and town, pick this place. You'll feel like you're staying with welcoming family members.

Room Tip: Just email Lourenco and make your request. He will figure out the best room to suit your needs.
