Ideally located, Villa Bomfim is off the main Baga road in North Goa. It is a short walk from Baga and Calangute beach, not to mention the popular bars and restaurants. It is 48 kms from the airport and 15 kms from Panjim city.
Villa Bomfim is an old Portuguese house dating back to the 1930s that has been converted to a homely guesthouse. Run by the 'de Souza' family who live in the main house of the grounds, the property houses 35 Standard rooms, of which three are Deluxe rooms.
The reception area is charming with a reception console and a lounge area with sofas and a television. One can find hints of the past with elaborately carved period furniture and accessories here and in the rooms.
Facilities and Services
Guest facilities at Villa Bomfim include a swimming pool, 24 hour room service during peak tourist season, beauty parlour, laundry service, money changing facility, safe deposit lockers at Rs. 25 per day and guest parking.
The rooms surround the central pool area and all have attached balconies with garden chairs to sit out on. With twin or double beds, the rooms are individually air-conditioned but have a fan as well. Interiors include a dressing table with a full length mirror, two chairs and a coffee table, wardrobe and a knick knack shelf on the wall. The attached bathrooms are well lit with a shower area, soap and linen provided for.
The guesthouse also has a multi-cuisine restaurant with a bar called El Toro Pub & Restaurant. Although outdoor, it is partially covered and has a tree in the centre, which when lit up in the evening, sets the perfect mood for a meal.
Get a lesson in history from any of the de Souza family members on the property.
We had booked this hotel via makemytrip and it was of type free breakfast, room service etc. However, on reaching there we got to know that there were no room service, no restaurant, no breakfast.
After calling makemytrip and complaining, they did provide breakfast next day. But the room is not very clean and TV was not functioning properly.
That being said, the location is very good as it very close to Baga beach. Also, there is a pool and overall it was a good stay.
Decent stay and value for mone....

Loved the villa style. A swimming pool is like cherry on the cake, A lot of greenery, but the hotel lacks food service so even for a tea you need to step out. Rooms are average and staff is helpful. Beach is just 7 min walk away, A lot of eating joints nearby.
Basic nature room with balcony....

The hotel is very near to Tito's Lane which is most happening place in Baga, the hotel rooms are basic in nature and has balcony, I would prefer rooms facing the swimming pool, there is parking within the premises which is a plus point indeed, we stayed there for a Day.
Good experience, budget stay

Location is the best part of the hotel, Baga beach is just 5 min walking and Calangute is 15 min walk. Rooms are also good and spacious, it was a pleasant stay, I didn't try any room service for food so can't say about it but it was a budget stay with friends.
Good for a day or two's stay

This hotel is in a very good location, right next to tito's lace, good night life, right next to the beach. However, the front office and the service is pathetic. The rooms are very basic and clean but you get some kind of a damp smell in the room. There is a small pool in the property. Good for a day or two's stay.
This was my Business trip. I visited Calangute. I stayed in Villa Bomfim in the month of July 2016. I booked this hotel through the phone call. The location of the hotel was good. It was village atmosphere. Pickup and drop facility was available. The appearance of the hotel was lovely. The interior and exterior look of the hotel was very nice. The reception was good. The room was superb. It was tidy. The food was not available but they arrange food from another restaurant. It was very costly. The services were well kept. They serve on time. The swimming pool was available. Overall this hotel was very nice.

I had visited this hotel for family trip. The activity was provided in the hotel. The hotel was located inside of the city. The appearance of the hotel was good. The room interior was good. The room and washroom was neat and clean. It was an old hotel. There was no delay in check in and checkout. The behaviour of the staff’s was co-operative. I would suggest this hotel to improve the room. The parking place was good. I would recommend this hotel for upcoming travellers.

This is our favourite hotel, every time we go to Goa, we stay here. It's run by family and the owner is so friendly with us. We just call him and book the hotel, its so close to Titos and Baga beach. The location is just perfect. The rooms are well-equipped, spacious and bathrooms are clean. I would say luxurious, but comfortable enough. The swimming pool is well maintained. Restaurant is decent with mini breakfast. Overall an awesome experience every time we go
