The Byke Old Anchor Resort
Ranked #8 of 10 Hotels in Cavelossim
Reviewed May 16, 2014 via mobile

Old anchor is an excellent resort in Goa. It has a huge green campus, has multiple offerings depending on your requirements and the best thing I like abouut this place is the wooden ship next to the swimming pool, inside which they have the reception and dance floor.
The rooms were very neat and tidy and the had an excellent view of the greens.
What we had booked was a 2 bedroom apartment sort of suit for our group of five people. I had everything you could ask for... Air-conditioned rooms and drawing room, nice and clean bathrooms (1 attached and 1 commom) and an amazing balcony. It had a kitchen too, although we didn't have the stuff to prepare our own food. It felt like as if we were staying in a home and not in a hotel/ resort.
The only thing that I didnt like much about this place was the food. Rest all was good.

Stayed: April 2014, traveled with friends

The location is very good, though not on the sea beach, but the beach is just across the road (approx. 100 mtrs). The resort is actually on the riverside, the beautiful Sal river flows by at the rear side of the resort. The rooms are good, food is very good but pure veg. The complimentary breakfast menu is really bad. Almost same menu every day and tasteless. Room Service is average. Staff behavior is cordial but not professional.

Room Tip: Don't book online. Go there and negotiate for a better price and room.

had my stay there this april. and we booked from a website in a deal for 1800 per room, and i was enthralled by the rooms shown on-line for this cheap deal.The only thing good about it it is surrounded by 5 stars and a great cavelossim beach. But i warn you, Dont book it like that.

A. You will not get a sea facing room that they advertise about in the pictures
B.The room will below average with 0 amenities
C.Its not value for money at all.

They called themselves Byke anchor, with reception built in the shape of ship and selling Gujarati and Rajasthani food. Totally confused hospitatlity

Dear Guest,

It is indeed unfortunate that you have been confused about our hospitality and allow me to clear your misunderstanding of your stay: - 1) The economy room which you had booked online is one of our budget category room with limited features and the same is fully mentioned in all the online portal. 2) The normal Deluxe Room is the one which you were enthralled with as it has more features and there are sea facing rooms in this category 3) All the categories of our rooms have complete amenities. 4) We do have reception in the ship shaped structure. 5) We are no. 1 in Gujarati and Rajasthani Food. I am sure with basic understanding of your room booked, you could always make more out of your holiday.

Best wishes.

We have stayed between 17 to 20 March 2014 in Byke old anchor. The hotel is very good for vegetarian people as it is very difficult to get pure veg food in Goa. You can check below points and decide on booking in the hotel.

Positive points:

1. Hotel location is very good.
2. Foods, especially dinner is awesome.
3. Transportation facility is excellent. Mr. Anil Das has given us very good service for pick up and drop and sight seen.

Arias of improvement (Negative points)

1. Room service is very slow. We have to call so many times for each and everything.
2. Rooms are average regarding cleanliness. Bathrooms are stinking like anything. We ask room service for that but not get solution of the same.
3. In food, breakfast is very average. We are getting same breakfast for all three days. You should add some more variety in breakfast.
4. In the Gym there is nothing for exercise. In games zone there is nothing to play.

Room Tip: Always ask to see the rooms before check in. Take a room on first floor only

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to post your feedback following your stay at The Byke Old Anchor- Goa.

We are happy to know that you had a comfortable stay and your kind comments are greatly appreciated.

Your constructive feedback has also been noted.

Please allow us to clarify regarding some of your points :
1. We do agree that Room service is slow, however, we always inform the same to the guest. Nevertheless, we have improvised on this to minimise the serving time.
2. Rooms are serviced daily by the house-keeping staff and we try to achieve a standardised hygienic cleanliness. However, if the bathroom need to be cleaned again, the same is done through the call to the house-keeping dept.
3. The breakfast has a large spread and the menus are different everyday, however, we have now improvised on the same with trendy and delectable cuisine.
4. The gym is a basic one, however, we do have different indoor games in our card & game rooms as well as Billiards. Besides, these, we have many outdoor games such as cricket, football, volleyball, badminton, etc. etc.. Not to mention the fun the swimming pool and the pool games therein.

Thank you once again and we hope to elevate your experience on your future stay.

Best wishes.
