Goa is a place for parties, fun and enjoyment. Anyone who visits Goa, desire to visit this rich, fun-filled atmosphere again and again. However, it is very important to know a place worth staying or worth staying AWAY :)… I will just give a brief account on one of the cheap option of stay named "Monte Villa" situated very near to the Candolim Beach of Goa but worth staying AWAY. On our trip to Goa we stayed at his place for three hours and we really will not suggest unless you are okay with the shabbiness of the rooms of hotel or are spending most of the time away from the room even time of night as well.

Candolim Beach Road…
Booking can be done by calling Mr. Arnold Mascarenhas and he will keep your rooms ready. I think overall there are 8 to 10 rooms with a rooftop restaurant. Here are the contact details,

Well, we were charged 600 Rs per day with cost of water bottles extra but since it was the carnival and valentines time every hotel or guest house had a high price curve. So, there must be scope of bargain in it as well. The cleanliness and comfort were really below standard which we didn’t enjoy. The beds were making all kinds of creaking sound and washrooms were even average types We had to leave the room by paying the full rent for one day in just three hours because the blanket which we were shredding just before going to sleep had a LIZARD inside it :shock:… We felt very uneasy after that in the room and had to leave the hotel in the night itself. The only candy was the roof top restaurant but that you would be rarely used on a road which offers on of the best dine-ins / cuisines in Goa. We finally stayed at Ezue Bia Guest House, Candolim Beach which was an awesome stay I would say, in my opinion.
The Guest House is located just left-side from the Murrod beach road connecting the Candolim Beach. It is one a side road which is just on the left side right at the end of Murrod beach road. When going towards Candolim Beach, you will see the left cut just before the beach entrance. This whole street is full of exciting dining areas and some very delicious ones. Don’t forget a meal or two at Angaara Restaurant which is almost in the premises of Ezue Bia Guest House. The cook there is amazing.
Pictures may better define the words and but unfortunately I don’t have any pictures of the room due to our brief and bad stay 🙁
As far as our experience was concerned, it was just pathetic. We had to leave the hotel in the middle of night because some lizards were thrown out of our blanket when we tried to dust it off by shedding it :cry:… It didn’t even lasted four hours and we had to pay full amount to the owner as he didn’t accepted the ill-cleanliness fact. The other thing which I didn’t like and was common to other hotels in Goa was that "Even drinking water was excluded in the room rent". Something I never saw anywhere in the past. But thank god that they don’t charge for bathing water ;). Overall the place was neither comfortable nor clean as per our taste 🙂 and the food served at the roof top restaurant was not even good on a road that offers varieties of cuisines almost all hours of the day :)…
In fact you should definitely have a meal at Angaara Restaurant which is almost in the premises of the Guest House. The street in front is full of night life but keep in mind that at Candolim Beach you will not find younger generation of tourists. It’s a beach dominated by old age people/foreigners but it’s very very calm due to lack of vendors/sellers etc., uneasy elements and local crowd… A nice to place to enjoy sea…
The place is only advisable if you are OK with living in sub-standard rooms although not too much bad in shape but ye they were if you are looking for comfort. It may suit people like college/school guys who are looking for fun or people looking for longer stay in Goa and would mostly spend the time outside the Hotel.It is very economic option of stay in Goa and that too stone’s throw from Candolim Beach as well as a street full of restaurants offering multiple cuisine.If for you, the hotel room will act as just the place to sleep a bit and freshen-up a bit then this place would definitely suit you on economic terms for sure. I am sure no couple (married/unmarried) would like to take it on due to cleanliness and comfort on offering.
I guess Ezue Bia Guest House, Candolim Beach is a far far better choice that this one.
