Resort : 5/5 - Beautiful resort with huge lush green lawns which are very well maintained and adds to the beauty of the resort. The resort also provides sun beds in these lawns to lie down and give oneself some calmness and relaxation overlooking the sea. Just a few steps from the lawn is the beach which is very clean and well maintained and the best part is that it is a kind of private beach which you can enjoy to yourself without being bothered by hawkers selling you stuffs. Only hotel guests can access this beach. Room: 5/5 - Booked their Deluxe room which was nice and spacious along with nice mattress and amenities. The washroom is also very nice(specially the bath tub). The balcony is overlooking the pool area and also gives a glimpse of sea. Food: 5/5 - Had all my meals included as part of my package. The spread was huge with a lot of options to choose from. The food was good specially their Chinese and pasta dishes are a must try. Hospitality: 6/5 - Just WOW !! Right from the booking to my time at the resort their hospitality has been really amazing. Everyone from the receptionist to housekeeping to all employees working across the resort including the dine in area were really friendly and helpful. Always greeting you with smile and were on their toes the whole time. A special call out to Priti ( booking department) , Navin , Arnold and Anubhav (front desk/reception) for all your support and catering to all my request and happily obliging them. A definitely recommend resort to visit for your vacations.

We went to Caravels beach resort for a short vacation and it was asking. The housekeeping staff Saniya,Daigo and Fatima were very helpful, meticulous and organized. Responded very quickly and were very friendly. We had booked four rooms and they kept all the rooms in top notch condition. Cleaned them very quickly every time we came back from beach and made mess. Took great care of my grandparents too,restocked on all toiletries and beverages regularly at least twice a day. Responded even when called late at night. Thank You for making our trip very memorable and amazing.

Wonderful Stay! Beautiful Landscaping! Serene Beach I have booked this resort after thorough search and I am glad it did it! We booked the Ocean Facing Rooms. It is probably amongst the best views I ever had from my hotel room. You can easily spend hours sitting in the balcony, soaking in beautiful views of the infinite tranquil Arabian ocean, visible over the beautifully done Golf course and coconut trees. The landscaping and the maintenance of the place are exceptional. The resort beach is is very beautiful, especially in the evenings. It is a long, flat stretch of white sand, with shells of various colors lining the shore. The breakfast spread is pretty good. The only feedback is that in room food menu could offer more options. Overall a great place to unwind

We stayed in Room number 246 from 8th -12th September ‘21. A fantastic place for a vacation with family or loved ones. The ambience, care & the hospitality service, provided was the ultimate. Each and every staff member were so obliging & friendly, that they made our stay a really memorable one. The rooms were very clean & comfortable and the resort overlooks the lovely beach, where you can literally walk into the clear water for a great distance. Really safe for kids too and the resort staff keep a watchful eye with their life guards. My husband Ajit was very happy with the mini golf course. My daughter Shilpa and I were content with the beach and swimming pool. To name a few of the people who took excellent care of us were- Mr. Sylvester Felix D’Souza – Director Front Office, Mr. Diniz, Mr. Sidharth, Executive Chef Amitava Paul, Mr. Raghupati, Mr. Anish, Ms. Madhu, Ms. Titli, Ms. Monica, Mr. Rohit, Mr. Gangadhara, Mr. Henrique, Mr. Imran and Mr. Youdhvi from the Activity Centre, Ms. Saniya, Ms. Carolina, Mr. Namdav from housekeeping & all the staff at the pool. We’ve mentioned a few names though there were many more familiar faces and those working behind the scenes who haven’t been named, but they have contributed to making a difference to the resort. Things missing were immediately sent to “lost and found”, to be claimed. The personal touch and interactions definitely made a difference as Caravela stood out amongst other resorts or hotels for us. It was a home away from home and they made it a special holiday for us that we didn’t feel like going out elsewhere. God willing, we intend making it a place for an annual trip and will definitely recommend Caravela to each and every one who want to visit Goa. Thank you Caravela for the experience & persona touch. Especially Sylvester, Siddarth, Amitava, your ambience was great, but you and your Fantastic team have kept your flag flying high. The only thing we were unhappy about were the cabs around the resort which we realized were a rip off. But this was beyond the control of the resort.
