This was my first trip to Goa. I made a telephonic booking to stay in Viva. Stay was comfortable along with pretty good amenities provided. From the way of talking of the hotel manager itself one can judge out their hospitality. Would definitely like to visit and stay in Viva again. Thanks for making my trip nice and comfortable.
