Visiting Candolim in December for sunburn. We are group of 12 people. Wondering if there was any private villa which did not mind us making noise and playing music till late.
i will be travelling from MAY FAIR hotel, panjim to candolim beach (SANTANA beach resort) .How much i can expect to have taxi fare?
Can i get direct bus from Panjim to candolim?
Will be visiting Candolim in Jan, and was wondering what the best way to exchange money is?
Can you tell me is it easier to take cash (although concerned about security issues)or Travellers Cheques (sterling)or Credit card etc.
Is it best to exchange in hotel or elsewhere.
Has anyone stayed at the above hotel in candolim? We know it is basic and having been to candolim before are interested to find out what this hotel is like, cleanliness, location and meals i.e breakfast. Also does anyone know if you can apply for a visa at Jain community centre Manchester or are they just agents ? ?
Its been a nearly two years since we were last in Goa and were wondering about the beach errosion as well. Having seen photographs on the web showing huge breakers to protect the beach. Lastly, we fancy going south for a day or two, how to get there and where to stay etc, rough ideas of costs would be much appreciated.
Does anyone know if it's possible to visit the Taj Mahal when staying in Candolim without pre-booking with tour operator, whether it be by road, rail or air and the approximate cost?. Many Thanks
Hi all,I booked 3 weeks at the sonnesta for our aniversery.we have allways wanted to visit india ,love goann trance, indian food and beaches so I thought it would be the place for us , but being a bit strapped for cash decided to leave the two eldest brats at home aged 18,20 for the first time ever, but the wife had other ideas and has booked them a flight to join us for two weeks,she does'nt trust them home alone ,but this leaves us to find them somewhere to stay when they arrive. Are there any very very cheap guest houses ,beach huts,abandoned kids shelters etc ,around Candolim Calingute area ?.Any sugestions welcome Neil Sue and the brats too.

I am going to Goa in Jan 07 and thinking of stopping at the Alor Grande in Candolim has anyone been since the refurbishments and whats it like? stayed in Don Alcina last year and the beds were really uncomfortable etc. What bits have been refubished?
My husband and I are travelling to Goa on 8th April, little concerned that it is the end of season and everthing will be closed !!! Any hints or tips of places to visit or general travel advice, I think I might take an umbrella anyway.
