Had been there in DSM. They accommodated me in next door Lobo's Inn. Very friendly people and a comfortable stay with no unwanted noise and jassy crowd. It is a place to be with the family without bursting extra bugs for a peaceful holiday. If you have your own conveyance the people at hotel will help you move around.

This is our first visit to this small well placed hotel which is set away from the busy tourist areas but still close enough to all the amenities in Cavelossim when required. This hotel would put many British Hotels and chains to shame with what Puri and Serafino (the owners) are attempting to do for the sake of the environment....

Donna sa Maria has a touch of Mama Mia and Fawlty Tower. Small and friendly with great staff and regular visitors. The rooms are cleaned daily with clean sheets and towels. The swimming pool is small but clean. The only problem is you need a taxi or scooter to go anywhere. On the upside there is plenty of wild life...
