“Really good find”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

Pros:
- Secluded
- Feels like you own the place because there are so few rooms in such a large estate
- Lovely deck area on the river, with bar, restaurant, pool. Very romantic, private, great atmosphere
- The river location is gorgeous
- Personal, extra attentive service
- Phenomenal value for money
- Extra quiet
- The food was truly excellent. Really special

Cons:
- I didn't like Goa as a whole but I suppose that's a different point altogether, besides the hotel. This made us enjoy and cherish this wonderful gem of hotel even more. We never wanted to get out!
- My air conditioning unit (room 10) was very noisy and needs fixing. Sleep was difficult as it was a choice between heat and noise

When i first saw the hotel from outside i felt that i have come to a County which really changed my mood in totality. I went with my friend and we really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The pool, the boar, the spa, the food, the bedroom, bathrooms etc were all amazing. This wasthe most romantic place i could be in goa. This hotel is definety worth rewarded and the rates of the rooms in off season are a considerable budgeted as compared to other 5 star hotels in goa. If you are looking for a romantic escape then instead of kerela, you go to casa colvale

Room Tip: take a deluxe room and get additional add ons in a package

we spent 3n 4days in sept 1st week learnt the true meaning of susegad and beauty of goa in the rains. able to bond with family amidst quiet surroundings where only sound was of silence.
the food and service was good and for those wanting outside choice of eateries only half an hour drive away. staff is courteous and helpful. the rooms are spacious and comfortable a nice deviation from other beach resort types in goa which we normally associate with the land of cashew and feni
only one of 2 pools functional but no difference because total guests were minimal in off season
thoroughly enjoyed by family of four

Room Tip: no.6 and 7 ideal for family

Our 1 week stay at Casa Colvale in February 2012 was just what we needed – a relaxing break in a quiet location within reach of the best beaches in the area. For anyone looking for a party hotel – look elsewhere. But if you’re looking for a place to recharge with a loved one then this is a good choice.
A scenic location next to the river offered plenty of wildlife viewing (we saw crocodiles, monkeys, buffalo, eagles, kites etc.) and also enabled some serious relaxation. Although there are 11 rooms, only 2 – 5 were occupied during our time there and it was easy to find your own space, although we also made some good friends. We were offered a choice of rooms when we arrived, which was a nice touch and our room was spacious, clean and stylish, as was the rest of the hotel. Our only negative regarding the room was that the towels did not live up to the standard of the rest of the hotel – some were stained and although a minor problem it could be easily rectified.
We’d read a lot about the hospitality of James the manager and he was helpful as expected. However, the real stars were the other staff, particularly all in the restaurant/bar area. The chef, Rohit cooked some excellent meals and was also friendly and helpful. The other restaurant staff – Azhar, Santosh and Cichendra were always keen to help, and offered excellent informal service with a smile that resulted in a relaxed, happy atmosphere.
You could spend a few days without leaving the hotel but we also took a few days out to visit the local beaches – our favourite was Ahwem, or a local market – Arpora and Anjuna were easily reachable. I’d read the comments regarding the 25 minute journey to the beaches and several viewed this as a negative. However, for my wife and I the journey was an opportunity to view the life within the local villages and was generally enjoyable.

we spent one night to just experience hotel and location, the latter one a heaven for nature lovers. there is hardly anything else around, so don't expect any shopping, action, dinner alternatives! we can truly reccomend our room in the main building facing the pool, in comparison to a lot else we have been to in india the cleaniness was really nothing to complain about. for european standard and understanding of luxury this property, more a posh villa with guest rooms than a hotel, deserves a tough professional guidance to satisfy the expectations most of the reviews might awaken. staff is really nice and helpful, but could certainly be more proactive in offering its services. due to monsoon and few guests the restaurant's choices were rather limited, as always in india one should opt for the non-western offerings, I'd say.
Not really a family orientated place, rather suitable for a romantic time out, my guess: most weekend guest are couples looking for a relaxed getaway from it all.
unfortunately we have not seen enough of the property to say anything valuable about the rooms in the lower part, overlooking the wonderful river just as the upper main building, so my recommendation is choose one of the rooms in the main building, ask for a view or pool side terrace (shared!).

A little late writing this review but just had to. This place is gorgeous! It sits up overlooking the backwaters and the views are absolutely breathtaking. We enjoyed our stay so much, the room was great, really really big compared to any other we had stayed in. Plus we had the second pool right outside which was convenient. When we first got to Goa we had booked a hotel near the beaches and hated it, it was way too noisy for us. This place was perfect because there was nothing around and it was so quiet and peaceful. Our host was extremely friendly and accommodating. The food, from what we experienced was delicious, although we were only there for a couple days so it's not like we had to eat there every day for a week. Breakfast did not have too many choices but what do you expect when you're in the middle of nowhere. I'd say this is an excellent place to splurge for a few days and really enjoy the company of the one you're with in a beautiful setting.
