We were on our way discovering Goa and Palm lifestyle is one of them. it was so peaceful everything was absolutely fantastic. Food was really good and the feel and look of the place was really nice, would love to come back here.
Agonda is still a peaceful place and decent beach huts.. Landscaped nicely with lots of plants.The rooms are bright ,clean and the shower has hot water - every time.The restaurant is also very good.And its a quiet place to stay and a short walk to the beach.
Its in north Goa and very near to Baga Beach. Very old styled resort with amenities like swimming pool with clean rooms but little expensive. The room rent includes break fast too. You can find the shops where one can hire good bikes at nominal price and market is also very near.
