We booked for 4 nights at the Cavala Villa, and immediately switched after checking in. The Villa is located 200 yards from the main hotel, across the main road and down an unpaved dirt track - which turns into a muddy quagmire at the first hint of rain. The Villa itself is poorly maintained, with signs of wood-rot everywhere and... More

Thank you very much for your review! I wish I would've known about your dissatisfaction while you were staying with us. We are a fairly small property and we do renovate sections every year. The block you stayed in is going to be done this year, in parts. i.e. with intercom, etc. I apologise on behalf of the team &... More

Fridays nights the only place to be is cavala .... Whether you liked or not if you are a rock fan the band will not let you sit down on your seats... The food is average but who cares where the rest of the ambience and the music is rocking ..truly the only place to be

If you are looking for quite place and decent property Cavala is the place you are looking. Cavala is an amazing property amidst the chaos of Baga. It is so much like old Portuguese but yet modern. It is peaceful and green everywhere. Rooms are clean and neat. The staff is very helpful. We had reached Goa during the time... More

I have stayed at Cavala many times in the past few years in small and large groups. It's a small house turned into a hotel and expanded over time, now part of it is 'banana republic' across the street with its swimming pool. The all day included breakfast is an inspired idea. It's good not to be worried that we... More

I've stayed at Cavala once in February 2011 (can't choose for later year than 2013 so have instead put Feb 2014). We stayed for 2 nights at the Banana Republic which was great and had spacious rooms with a pool view. Loved waking up early in the morning and taking a dip into the fresh water!
