Good but need some more improvements


I visited this hotel with friends. Destination was good. Location of the hotel was inside the city and was good. Appearance of the hotel was average from interior and exterior. Check in check out was done on time. Staff were cooperative and friendly. Room was not neat and clean. All amenities were available with working condition. Room was congested. Service was on time and was average. I did not take food from the hotel. No activities were held at the hotel.

Food quality was very good


The hotel was located far from the railway station. The appearance of the hotel was nice. The check in and checkout process was not delayed. The allotted room was spacious with clean. All amenities were working fine in the room. The food quality was very good. The activity was not arranged by the hotel. I had visited this hotel with my family. The behaviour was friendly and co-operative. I don't have any suggestion for this hotel.

Luxurious services with grand view from the gallery


The hotel location was good and near to the beach. I did not find any difficulty in reaching the hotel. Appearance of the hotel was good. Staff at the hotel were helpful and quick in responds. Room was clean, neat and maintained with luxurious amenities were provided and working in condition. There was a beach view from the gallery. Food quality at the hotel was good. There was no delay while check-in and check-out process. There were no activities found at the hotel. It was an official trip with colleague group in the month of February 2013. I would like recommend this hotel for other travellers.

Value for money with decent rooms, helpful staff


This March my best friend and I headed to Goa to celebrate my birthday and what a fabulous trip it was. Having stayed at Joaquim before, this was our obvious choice for accommodation. What Joaquim does offer is excellent value for money, decent rooms to crash in after a long day at the beach or after an exhausting night of club hopping at Tito's lane which is just a stone throw away. The brightly coloured guesthouse gives you a glimpse of the old world Goan charm. The staff is very helpful and will go out of their way to help you out. The owners are warm and have the best suggestions on what places to visit in Goa. If you desire fancy high-end rooms with uniformed staff catering to your every whim, then this is not the place for you. If you seek serenity and peace, then post sunset Tito's lane would make that impossible. But if you are a bunch of young folks looking to paint the town red and not spend a lot on accommodation then this is the place for you. You can walk out at 3am and still find plenty to eat and drink and its all hardly 5mins away. Oh and did I mention Baga beach that is just a stroll away. Overall, this might not be the best place for families seeking some quite time, but as long as I'm going to Goa with my friends, this is the place to be. Looking forward to visiting again.

Overall experience was good


The location of this place is a little difficult to find. But its walk able distance to some of the main places. The rooms were good for the cost.The staff was very gentle and helpful.

Very crowded and commercial


We wanted to go to Palolem and we were on our way from Belgaum to Palolem. But due to the roads and taking a wrong turn, we reached Goa pretty late at night and decided to stay at Baga. Hate the place. Too crowded and very commercial. Wanted to get out of there as soon as possible. Anyways with regards to Joaquim Guest House, it is located in the main Baga street behind one of the many guesthouses located on the street. Quite difficult to find. A kid at one of the shacks informed us about this place. The location is good for people who want to party at Mambos or Titos. At walkable distance. Advantage is that its not on the main road. Its located behind another guesthouse. So its not very loud and there is not a lot of disturbance. Did not eat food here. I don't think they have a restaurant here and because of which I don't know if they have room service because we did not order anything here. But because it's Goa, I assume that there will be room service.
