A friend and I stayed for 6 nights at Cuba, Patnem - and the staff made the trip for us. The accommodation itself is nice - really spacious rooms, with air con, a great location right on the beach front, CCTV which ensured we felt safe, and so on - but let me get back to the staff...
Nothing was too much trouble, from my friend's dietary needs which were always met with no problems at all - to our requests for a room change due to our preference for separate beds. Everything we asked for was granted without delay. But it goes further than that. By the end of our trip the staff felt like our friends, everyone always had a smiling face for us, and some even had fantastic words of life wisdom which I will definitely carry with me always. We didn't get to know the kitchen team, but every meal was delicious and nicely presented. We received help with booking transport and surfboard hire at different locations. Honestly, I can't say enough on how great the staff are at this resort. I don't know how much they are being paid, but I expect they deserve at least double!
There were some power issues while we were there, but that seemed to extend to the whole of Patnem, rather than being isolated to Cuba.
another year and another stay at Cuba Patnem and it keeps on getting better. The new spacious huts beat anything else on the beach hands down.Front of house, Mohan and his team, Monty and Asif were the perfect hosts in the bar and restaurant which serves the best Indian food on the beach.
Thank you all.
I have travelled around Goa now for a few years and keep returning to Cuba for a reason. The beach is peaceful and tranquillity, enough restaurants nearby to provide variety but the best huts are found at Cuba, Patnem
The hospitality is fantastic with Monte providing a welcome smile and always on hand to help in any way. Asif and Monhan also were, as usual friendly and made us feel so part of the furniture
The huts are clean with air con if needed and the food is first class with the Biriani being the best I had tasted.
As always I would stay there again hopefully next year.
Thank you Cuba Patnem and esp Monte for making our stay so enjoyable
Great team work all around guys!. 5 stars!
I've visited Cuba quite a few times now and this year we were again greeted by friendly faces and, this year, new huts! As always Mohan, Ashraf, and Monty were great hosts and the food was excellent. The new huts are more solidly constructed than the previous ones. It's a shame that they've not been painted the lovely range of colours seen in previous years and disappointingly there are no longer hammocks on the verandas (hence four stars rather than five). However the wifi reliability seemed much improved though. Some things that remain unchanged are the welcoming nature of the hosts, the lovely relaxing vibe in the restaurant and the absolutely fantastic view over the Arabian Sea. I know I will be going back and can't wait.
Visiting goa definitely requires a stay in the south. Patnem especially and Cuba all the more to perfect it.
We return each time and have stayed here and palolems, but patnem around four times now is by far the best.
Accommodation are some of the best beach huts we've had and are very comfy and spacious. The location is the lush, as is the food, drink, atmosphere and improvements they strive to make each year.
The best thing has to be the service though and over the years some amazing staff have come and gone; the staff that remain are mint, new dudes too!!
The guys behind the scenes making food delicious and prompt are super lovely. Then the up front service, of which the amazing monty Carlo brings humour love, light, charm, and such personal service you can't get anywhere else. Mohan; keeping the cogs moving but with such friendly grace and personal service; making sure everyone's well looked after... seriously you can't go wrong. They all make everyone feel so at home- love it. They've helped us out when we've had issues elsewhere and would go that extra mile to ensure your stay is as comfortable as possible.
Wifi really was the best on beach but please don't that be the pull.
See you again
