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.

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 :)

please avoid this resort

Posted Aug 4, 2013
Pros: closeness to beach
Cons: inadequate lighting & bad maintenance of everything
Location: Ward No. 4 | Colva Beach, Colva 403708, India
the property was small, it was far from to be considered as resort. everything in room was old & in bad condition. the paint, furniture,plumbing. meal was expensive so we preferred eating outside. 2 things bothered us very much. 1. inadequate lighting (you can not read a thing even if u sit at reading table) 2. dampness (the whole room was stinking like it was abandoned for a while).

if in colva, stay at soul vacation

Posted May 29, 2013
Pros: food, quality of room, good service, cordial staff
Cons: should have been more open....pictures suggested as if the property is spread across many acres...
Location: 5 mins walk from colva beach and market.however, my suggestion is that stay away from colva beach.too crowded.i liked benaulim more than colva beach
hotel is very nice. stayed there from 25th May to 28th May 2013. Great value for money. Has all the amenities that one would look for in a big 4 or 5 star hotel. I must also mention that i really liked the food at the restaurant. The quality of the food was delicious. much better than some of the beach shacks at colva beach. i just loved the food at Soul vacation hotel, and so did my family. hotel service was very good and staff were very cordial. the only think i didn't like was Colva beach. too crowded and this hotel is about 5 mins walk from Colva beach. i liked Benaulim beach more than Colva. but since i had my own car, it didn't bother me much as i could drive to benaulim beach everyday. all in all, the hotel is a lovely place to stay and eat. but stay away from colva beach, visit benaulim beach if you prefer fewer crowd.
