Great choice for a quick stay
Posted Sep 9, 2016
My family and I booked in at the Ramada Caravela for a quick 2 night stay and were rather pleased with our overall experience.
A sudden new commitment meant that we delayed our arrival to the Hotel till rather late on the first day. And it was a bit frustrating to be additionally delayed at the reception who seemed to take inordinately long to get through our check-in process. They also seemed a bit confused/uncertain about having received 2 emails from me about our stay there, for which I never received replies or acknowledgement either.
This aside however, all the front office staff were all pleasant and polite. And once shown to our rooms, we began an unformly relaxing, comfortable and happy couple of days at the Hotel. The breakfast next day was lavishly stocked with more than enough choice for just about every type of taste and preference. This was a welcome change from a distressing trend I've noticed in Goan hotels in recent years, who seem to believe that providing for *only* south indian tastes is the best way forward.
The property itself is beautifully located, with pleasing landscaping, leading right up to the ever lovely Varca beach in front.
The best part of all however was the wonderfully courteous, friendly and ever attentive staff, who ensured the entire family was comfortable and well looked after. Three I'd like to specially highlight are Menson (House keeping staff), Minguel ( Asst. House Keeper) and Saniya (H. K. Supervisor)
