When he returned he said again that he needed to check...

The layout was pretty average to be honest and the spread was exposed to the elements. I for one also thought it didn't look hygienic enough. The staff is pretty good and the kind...

We booked it via Agoda.. and specifically searched for a place with a pool. While the place was nice, and the service with a smile, the pool was inoperative for 3 days, i.e the duration of our stay. Very disappointing.. they should have informed their booking partners and mentioned it.

We stayed in this beautiful resort for 5 days over the 2016-17 new year weekend and I must say it was a fabulous stay. The lovely cottages are placed within a lush green fauna around a beautiful pool. You can wonder and just admire the calm, peaceful climes of this place...!!! On the down side - they need to maintain...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Fern Gardenia Resort is a unique Eco - Sensitive Resort at Palolem beach in South Goa. Apart from being the only hotel in Palolem with a Swimming Pool & Pool Bar, the hotel aims at providing Luxury accommodations to the budget sensitive travelers, which is a first for Palolem beach. Located 1KM from Palolem Beach in South Goa’s Canacona district. About 60kms from the Airport, 2kms from the Canacona Railway Station and 30kms from Margao.The Palolem beach, also known as Paradise beach is one of the most picturesque beaches in Goa with crystal clear waters and white sand. This beach has fast become the best alternative to the crowded beaches of North Goa.As of now, accommodations in Palolem were restricted only to the shanty coco huts or guest houses along the beach belt or to the only expensive Star hotel in Canacona which is way beyond the reach of many. The Fern Gardenia is the only hotel in its category which sports all the comforts and amenities of a Luxury hotel but fits in the budget of the average traveler visiting Palolem and Agonda. ... more   less
