I am planning on staying in Agonda in Goa for 2 weeks from the end of December. I first went there 7 years ago (stayed at Dunhills) - has it changed beyond recognition or is it still relatively quiet - even at Xmas and New Year.

Any recommendations for accommodation with attached toilet and shower? Can I take the risk of waiting until I arrive (29 December.

Also, does anyone know Forget Me Not in Agonda? I've found a website but emails bounce back.

Many thanks for any suggestions!

Agonda & Palolem

Hi all

I am looking for a recomended beach huts for the above places and thought this web site had many words of wisdom!!

Can any one help?

The choices for Agonda are: Chattai, The Mahnamahnas or Romance Beach Huts - what do you think is best? Or am I missing anything?

The choices for Palolem - is Ciarans......I hear this is great!!

ALso does anyone have the contact details for Romance cottages - their website does not seem to be working...?

Thoughts of wisdom would love...

mchughs.
We are in Agonda right now and there is so many nicer places then the ones you mentioned. I personally believe that Chattai is over priced for what it is. The best is to not book (if you will arrive after 15th of january, in December here is pretty full), just go around and look yourself and decide. I prefer the north side of the beach myself, it's wider and feels cleaner somehow. Chattai is on the north side, the other 2 is on the south...

HI INGELEX AND RUSTY...

Thanks for your note - so much appreciated.

My boyfriend wants things booked - but I am quite happy to take your recomendation and book there.....

If you can recoemend anything 'word of mouth' from people let me know so it will give me an idea which end of the beach to head that would be great!!!

We are going to book Ciarans for Palolem - a bit pricey but..it is populuar I will let you know how it is 3150 RP per night...we go in March 2010. With that price I want Cha served in gold embossed tea cups!!!

Have a great holiday and any recomendation most welcome..for me and others..

Don't know what standards you want but the prices are dropping every month. White Sand which is a very nice place in Agonda with huts or rooms around a garden shaded by palmtrees and a great small restaurant in the middle (excellent food- Indian Chinsese, Mexican and really nicely made)was 2500R in Jaunuary for a hut with bathroom is now 1500 and will be even cheaper in March!! http://www.agondawhitesand.com/

We are staying VERY simple, a hut with shared bathroom and toilet for 400R a night, but since you choose such an expensive place in Palolem that might not be your choice...

A suggestion- when you book through Internet the rates are for SURE much higher then if you just show up and can deal with the price. Another great place to stay in Palolem is Bhakti Kutir, an amazing place with amazing huts.http://www.bhaktikutir.com/accomodation.php

Good luck

Hi everyone.
What is the situation with accommodation at Agonda in october? I will be in Goa from the beginning to 20th october this year. I visited agonda last january and then there were a lot of places to chooce from. Are things totally different at this time of the year? All the huts and shacks are down etc? Or can I just get there and find myself a cheap beach hut like I did in january?
-Thanks

I love these huts which start by saying back to nature, natural products, no ac or TV but still want crazy money, modern day hippies love the money. Were looking for something with a TV

Quite rightly too!

You are more authentic than you realise........

What did the native Goans get first?

Running water? Nope.
Toilets? Nope.
A clean environment? Nope.
A non-corrupt gov'ment? Nope.
Acceptable driving? Nope.

Basic transmitted tv in b&w.............yes, almost 20 years ago, but it was crap, so shortly after came cable tv , in colour and very cheap, took over, and almost every home had it.........but not most of the facilities listed above, they were not important!

Now a lot of homes have TataSky satellie tv, but a lot of them still are missing basic amenities listed above......
