Good for its price range, very conveniently located, friendly management and need to set up tv services in the rooms!

So many better options especially for the pricePosted Dec 16, 2011 on Hotels.com
Dona Alcina did not live up to the booking reservations made on Hotels.com. We were promised a non-ac room with a TV and a continental breakfast. There was no TV, and the 'continental' breakfast included extremely weak coffee and 3 pieces of dried bread (extremely hard with no warmth or toast markings) with only enough butter and jam for 1.5 pieces. The reception staff was extremely miffed that we wanted to check-in. It seems we interrupted an in important call, as he didn't put the phone down while trying to process us. He wanted to keep our passports for the night as he needed to photocopies. When we asked why he could copy now, we were told because it was closed. We still aren't sure what was closed. We tried again the next day and the front desk woman, again didn't want to put her phone down and but wanted us to wait for an hour for the photocopies. The only good point was the pool, it looked nice but you can't bring outside food or drinks to the pool, you MUST order from the restaurant. All in all, there are so many better choices with considerably better locations for considerably less in Candolim or elsewhere along the Goan coast. If you have any choice, look elsewhere.

Nothing wrong, but nothing great eitherPosted Nov 4, 2011 on Hotels.com
Dona Alcina is an old resort in walking distance from the Candolim beach. My expectations were very limited on this place and I was reasonably happy. To be honest, there was nothing wrong with anything in the hotel - the rooms were clean, the staff were very helpful and extremely courteous, the pool was clean, the restaurant was decent. Overall, a no complain situation.
