Our second visit to the hotel

We stayed the first few days in a villa before moving to suite 325. A total 10 days over Easter. (We were here same time last year)

Looking for some R+R away from the bustle of London. This place absolutely hit the spot.

The most helpful and attentive staff (at all hours).

Great food - loved the bread/naan station. And dinner at the beach hut in the evening after watching the sunset was my highlight.

Good facilities (incl pools, par 3 golf + tennis courts). Suitable for children (mine are 6 & 8 - lots of activities for them). Was told that they were building a kids centre

Planning our return next year.

Room Tip: Pay a little more for the newer rooms - def worth it.

I visited in the last week of March. It was an amazing experience. All the people were accommodating and quick in service. The resort is a little away from the city but I . think that's what makes it more calm and beautiful. The beach is spectacularly clean. I mean I have never seen pure white sands. The food is mind boggling. In short I was pleasantly surprised. Will be going back for more once again.

Room Tip: Comfortable and spacious

Well..this was our second stay at this resort & it was well worth the money spent .They have probably the best of the beaches in Goa . It is a vast property with lot of open spaces & greenery .The rooms (we had a garden view room) are spacious enough & clean .The bathrooms need a bit of makeover,has a health faucet though.The attached balcony to every room helps in enjoying nature even more & also drying your clothes :) .Housekeeping is attentive & prompt (we asked for water bottles couple of times).
They have couple of restaurants near beach ,have a good ambience in the evenings.There are quite a few shacks around if you want to try (we did not) .Also , they seem to have enough beach beds which is not the case with all Goa hotels.The beach itself is very clean & quiet (not many outsiders apart from hotel crowd) . You have sea adventure sports(para sailing , sea scooter , dolphin spotting boat ride etc.) options in the morning & evenings, although offered by external groups.
The breakfast & dinner spreads are lavish & mostly Indian , good enough for Vegetarians too .Especially liked the live Indian Breads counter & Desserts spread .They had a ‘Live’ Singer during dinners who did quite a good job.The Lunch & Dinner are priced at 1200/- + taxes but while Checking-in you can check for special discounted (around 15% I guess )buffet coupons .
The swimming pool is large enough & has multiple divisions based on the height ,has a bar in the middle (we didn't try). Children would surely enjoy the pool . General info. -If you are going in summer time -Avoid the time between 11am - 4pm to go in pool/sea(to avoid sunburn )
The Check-in took a bit of time but the check-out was smooth . Special Thanks to the Duty Manager – Ms Mabel for extending our Check-out time & proactively calling us in the room to inform on the same ,appreciate it.
The cab to the airport charged 1300/- which seemed ok .
Overall , it was a very satisfying stay & we’ll surely come back .

If you want to see what paradise looks like its this place. Superb hospitality. Awesome property. Very luxurious rooms which are very nice and clean and comfortable. Delicious food. What more can one ask for? Their exceptional service starts the moment you set foot ourside the airport- they welcome you to Goa and their chauffeur Rama will drive you to the resort in one of their A/C Cars.
Check in is a breeze. Very quickly you are transported to your luxurious rooms and its like you have entered heaven. Lovely beach and sunset views. You could just sit in the balcony and watch the world go by. The birds chirping in the woods and the cool breeze blowing.
Samarth was a mind blowing and happy to help gentlemen to count on any thing you required or if you have any petty issues and was available on call also in odd hours, nice gesture.The restaurant is huge, and Joseph willingly will serve you. The breakfast is delicious and they serveup a very good mix of indian and continental dishes. The staff is very helpful especially Suraj, Gordon & Anuj. Same goes for the lunch and dinner Mac and Spanish were great. The desserts are just out of the world. 
The pool is good and clean and island bar is a added attraction. 
The beach is lovely and almost private. Very clean and we really enjoyed spending our evenings just strolling on the beach and playing cricket with Yudvir. Theres no crowd to bother you. Very peaceful. Thanks to all the staff members of Caravela resort for making our holidays great, will be coming back soon in monsoon break.
