Waste of money

Posted Jul 25, 2014 on Hotels.com
I recommend every one not to even see for this hotel. The rates are very high compared to their amenities. This hotel is like an old villa with poor furnitures. You can get a lot better hotels with same price in goa. The location is very poor. Go at your own risk in order to make your trip a disaster.

Laid back vacation

Posted Jun 28, 2014
Pros: Location, breakfast, room and staff.
Cons: wifi connectivity.
Location: Colva beach is a short walk via an alley. There are many good restaurants nearby. One must try the restaurant Kentucky that has excellent seafood.
My wife, son and I stayed at the Soul Vacation for 3 days mid June 2014. The hotel is very well located in Colva - about 5-7 minutes walk to the beach. Breakfasts at the hotel were nice - appropriate for a hotel of this size. We took a kind of a suite - 2 bedrooms with a common bathroom and a balcony overlooking the swimming pool. It was very peaceful. The swimming pool is small but was ok if one wants to take a swim in the afternoon, which is what my son did and enjoyed. Hotel staff is friendly and helpful. The only negative is poor wifi. We bought a 24-hour account which we could use on only one device (a laptop) - it was a slow connection. But this was a small minus in our otherwise lovable, laid-back stay. We'd love to go back and stay there.

Cleaning left a lot to be desitred

Posted Feb 17, 2014 on Hotels.com
Room was quoted as' luxury' - this is stretching the meaning of the word - terrace doesn't mean a terrace it means a path outside the room - no chairs or table. Room smelt musty/damp. Breakfast mats on tables filthy never saw anyone clean the tables, rooms were cleaned in minutes!

Pros: The hotel room fragrance was very pleasing. Room services was very good with no delay in responding to your need. Hotel indeed gives peace of mind.
Cons: We reached at 2pm but had to wait for 1/2hr for the room to be cleaned. Shouldn't the room be kept ready by 1230 well before we come??

Nice hotel close to Colva beach

Posted Nov 13, 2013
Pros: Location. Architecture; garden; size of rooms; quietness
Cons: Check-in procedure. Swimming pool cleanliness of the water
Location: lot to do in South Goa
Nice quiet hotel located 5 minutes walk from Colva beach. Large rooms and bathrooms surrounding a swimming pool (but the water did not look crystalline!!) and a lush garden. Breakfast is not great. Check-in is very long and cumbersome: staff is not very smiling.

Old hotel with poor facilities

Posted Nov 6, 2013
Pros: The pool was spacious and clean. The complimentary breakfast was pretty good.
Cons: Everything. They need to renovate the rooms with new furniture and modern amenities. Get rid of the OLD TV with no paid channels.
Location: There's almost nothing to do in Colva that's why we were counting on this hotel. Taj Exotica is not too far if you want to have a dinner.
We were really excited to go and stay at this hotel. We chose to go to Colva just to be here. When we arrived they said they gave us the luxury room instead of a deluxe but the luxury was completely missing. It was quite disappointing right from the reception where it feels more like a hospital than a Hotel. The room was big but things were really old like the lamps and tv. The TV was really old and almost no paid channels were subscribed. The bathroom was big but missing basic amenities like a hair dryer. The room was not very clean. We saw a lizard as soon as we entered. One frame fell off. The shower was leaking and the flush wasn't working. So all in not impressed at all. They have tried to do a lot of things but nothing is done properly or maintained well. The hotel surrounding looks nothing like pictures. It's really small and different compared to the pictures. Don't be fooled !

Memorable Stay!! Awesome must go place 4vacation

Posted Sep 24, 2013
Pros: Situated close to the beach and cool and calm place!!
Cons: Since I am from Karwar (coastal belt) I love to see variety of fish items in the menu. I feel food menu should have some more variety of sea food/fish
Location: Colva beach is 5mins walk, Margao city is 10mins drive, Airport is 30mins drive, Ponda / Old Goa is 45 mins drive to see Old hindu temples and Church
I celebrated my engagement here on 18th Sept'13. We were 2 families with 4 rooms booked(2 luxury and 2 deluxe).. I have one word to say this is a perfect place for vacations specially when you are with family and looking for a decent place with all the amnesties! Rooms were clean and maintained well.. Staff is very nice and friendly. Manager Rajesh Ranjan and Shiva made me feel home.Cheers to both!! It was raining cats and dogs for 3 days and I had function in the evening and I wanted it near poolside.. The staff arranged everything so well in no time I was speechless :)
