    My friends and I want to go Goa and in particularly want to be near the beach. So we would like to know which are the best hotels in Goa that are near the beach?

    We need a mid range hotel, as a 5 star hotel would be too costly and as our stay is for 10 days it would not fit our budget.

    We would also like to have a pool in the hotel we decide to stay in.
