      Roads are good throughout. Once you get off the Gabbur by-pass, keep an eye because you will miss the turn to Alnavar which is under a flyover (towards the left, you will see a toll under the flyover too).

      From here on, you have a 2km small patchy section, rest of the roads are brilliant. A few speed breakers along the way, but the road is so deserted that you wouldn't mind them.

      We did this trip 4 weeks ago! So the road conditions are latest. Doubt things can go bad since then. We took a ton of breaks and still managed to reach Goa from Bangalore in 8.5hrs.

      Pit stops! See if you stop at Davanagere for the famous butter dosa. Nothing much to eat in Hubli/Dharwad.

      You have plenty of shops serving tea/coffee at Londa, Ponda. Once you enter the Goa border check post with 1km there is a nice restaurant on the left hand side. Can't seem to recollect the name. You can take a break there as well.

      Thanks a lot. Plan is to stay at Hubli and start early the next day. One more query, I don't have prior experience driving in ghat sections and this is my first time , any specific pointers to keep in mind?

      Don't worry too much, just drive at a pace you are comfortable at. And try to stick to your lane. All will be fine!

      So I made the road trip to Goa on 13th June and returned on 16th June. Here is the route I followed which was suggested by mclaren1885 .

      Many thanks Rahuul for the valuable information. Helped a lot . As you said , the entire stretch was brilliant except for the stretch from Ramnagar to Goa border. It was a patched section but easily manageable in a sedan. The turn off to Goa near Dharwad was under a fly over but there was a board kept by National Highways Department near the turn off which was well marked. Plus I also had Google Maps navigation running , so I didn't miss the turn off .

      Here are two videos of the roads shot during the drive.

      Anmod ghat road (KA side) has been closed due to widening and construction. Alternate route is now via Chorla ghat only, ghat road is in good condition with a few bad sections between Khanapur and Jamboti. Best route to Panjim from Dharwad is Dharward>Kittur>Bidi>Khanapur>Jamboti>Chorla>Sanqu elim>Banastari>Panjim road is very narrow all the way from Kittur to Sanquelim so expect a longer travel time.
