We booked this hotel for our 8 days long stay in Goa in May’15. We have stayed at many hotels over the years, often luxury ones with impeccable details and fantastic designs. Viva calangute is not a Luxury Hotel , but one of the warmest place I’ve been to ., I’m sure I will fondly remember the vacation we had... More

Breakfast Sucks, Hardly there are any options, nothing found interesting in 3 days. Absolutely NO service. No power backup No space for quick parking Not a good reception... More

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.
