Colva : Colva is a small village in south Goa on the shores of the Arabian Sea. The church in Colva is famous for its annual religious event—Fama of Menino Jesuse (Child Jesus)—since the 17th century. The predominantly Catholic community celebrates it on the third Monday of October every year. It is one of Goa’s most popular feasts and a big fair is held on the occasion. Christian, Hindu and Muslim festivals are celebrated in Goa throughout the year which gives Goa an almost non stop party atmosphere. If you like to shop for a bargain whilst enjoying the beach restaurants offering a variety of Goan dishes as well as western foods, then visit one of the colourful and exotic night markets where one can buy hand-crafted artefacts, antiques as well as European goods. The trinket stalls,the food and drink stands and the live music, on the golden sands, under the moonlight make the evening utterly romantic. Maybe try your hand at paragliding or jet-skiing or take a boat trip to see the dolphins.
Goa : Goa is located on the West Coast of India. Colva is situated in the South, 35 minutes drive from Dabolim Airport and a 10 minute ride from Margao, the second largest city in Goa. Local and Western goods are available and you will also find banks and Internet cafes. The town has an excellent market area along with a Bazaar that is a labyrinthine covered area and is a rich source of authentic souvenirs and a good place to browse for some bargain shopping.
Explore along the South Goa coastline with its stunning white sands and blue seas and you can find many empty peaceful coves for that true 'Touch of Paradise'. To get a sense of the history of South Goa take a tour to Old Goa with its fascinating temples and churches or visit the Spice Farm and help to bathe the elephants. The waterfalls at Dudhsagar are also a very popular where you can feed the monkeys and then take a jeep ride through the National Park before cooling off in the natural lake at the bottom of the falls.
Please Note:: The shared outdoor pool does not have a lifeguard and children should be supervised by a responsible person. Anyone using the pool does so at their own risk. In order to maintain the pool it may occasionally be out of use whilst essential repairs/maintenance are carried out.
We wish to express our thanks and appreciation to you for the enjoyable tour that we spent at Villa - Danika Residency from 14 to 18 June 2014.
Our deepest appreciation goes to Mr. John who serves a best services during our stay. The villa was beautifully decorated, clean and comfortable, and it was abundantly obvious that you had taken nothing for granted. They were everything you said they would be. It is the sort of place that one would have no problem recommending to friends and families. We can definitely say that Danika Villa is our destination of choice.
Overall it was a great experience. I have given 4 stars instead of 5 because of minor issues. First the positive things:
Positive: Villa is very good, rooms are specious. All the facilities are available in Villa, like gas, refrigerator, micro-wave, washing machine and even all the cooking and dinner utensils. You just have to take grocery with you in case you want to cook. We were large group of family and friends. Living room is big enough for all of to chit-chat almost entire night. I would also like to mention about manager Jimmy, he is very nice person. He helped us in everything we required. Swimming pool was not working so he paid in another resort for 2 hours since we had kids with us you wanted to swim. Overall, I am definitely going to stay there next time as well. Once again thanks to Linda, John (Goa) and Jimmy for all the help.
Negative: Now if I talk about negative the one which is the worst, was swimming pool not working. I think it should be informed to guest well in advance if it is not working. When we search for a resort/villa online, we specifically search "with swimming pool" and if its not working it is very disappointing. Next thing is, Jimmy mentioned that he has been waiting for us since afternoon, as we came late evening. It was annoying, even if he is waiting, he did not had a chance to see if everything is working. When we reached, we checked TV is not working, extension was sparking and cable tv was not recharged. Afcourse we appreciate that he called the cable guy and it sorted out in an hour.
Overall, it was great experience and we would definitely stay there next time as well.
