Nice & quiet little resort
The food, the pool and the staff
The hotel itself is really nice. Comfy bed, cute rooms, great food, clean pool and excellent service. However, the location is in Colva which has a crowded beach and too many street dogs.

Noisy, but comfortable
Spa, Large room, Big swimming pools.
A bit stressful. Booked us into the wrong room but after a few meetings with the staff and finally the manager we were able to get the room we had booked. The hotel was very noisy with loud music nearly all day at the pool. The room was very comfortable.

Overall, we had a nice stay at the hotel.
Size of the room, friendliness of the staff, location in relation to the town of Colva
Overall, we had a nice stay at the Soul Vacation Resort. The grounds and exterior of the buildings are well-maintained, the staff we friendly, and the location is well situated close to the beach and the town, where there is lots of transportation (taxis, public buses, tour companies). The room was large, clean and bright. I would not necessarily classify it as a luxury room - it had a lot of wear and tear - but we were very happy to have all the space and the natural sunlight in the room, as well as to have it cleaned properly daily. I have a couple of negative comments. We arrived quite early in the morning (around 7:30 am). I didn't expect our room to be ready, but the receptionist told us to take a seat while the room was prepared. After about an hour (!!), we finally got the nerve to ask what time the room would be ready, and the receptionist informed us not until 12:00. I was a little upset that she told us to sit and wait when the room would not be ready for 4 hours. The second negative comment is about the internet. On the Agoda page for this hotel, it says that wireless is available in all public areas, and that it is also available in the rooms (chargeable). This is very misleading - I thought that wifi would be available for free in public areas. I brought this up with the manager. She said yes, it was misleading, but blamed the Agoda website, even though I now hotels are responsible for their own profiles. In addition, the internet was 120 rupees for one hour - a rip-off considering most other hotels in the area have free wifi and even most beach shacks offer it for free. This false advertising really upset me and left a bad taste in my mouth about the hotel.

Will not go there again
Nothing great, a disappointment
The hotel is run down and does not look like anything form the website. The spa is dirty , so not very attractive. Breakfast is pretty basic. Close to the beach, but not a great are. Not much to see, and cafes choices are very limited.

Nice location near the beach.
Room, food, swimmingpool
It was a very pleasant stay. The rooms are very nice, very big bathroom and a nice view on the swimming pool. Wifi is NOT FREE! A certain hotel like soul vacation has to have free wifi as a standard service!

Nice hotel
Room size
A wonderful piece of property . The delux rooms are good. The famous colva beach is right beyond the boundaries of this hotel, where lots of water sports are organized all day long. You can also hire a bike through the hotel easily. Breakfast spread was good. Overall, a nice experience. Will surely be going...

Excellent location and beautiful room.
Rooms are large and good condition.
Excellent location and staff are very accommodative. They go out of their way to accommodate your request. Rooms are large and very romantic setting. Everything you would need in a 5 star hotel. In house dinning was very reasonable and food was excellent. The hotel is located on the best beach in Goa. Walking distance to a lot of places and bus terminal, taxi stand. We had a wonderful time. Will highly recommend to anyone. No regrets!

Good food but not located near a nice beach
Nice swimming pool, quite child friendly
Soul Vacation is a reasonably priced and comfortable hotel, with a nice pool and good facilities. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The service could be better, however. The nearest beach is Candolim, which was incredibly crowded and dirty. The hotel is located quite near Martin's Corner, a great restaurant.

Soul Vacation is a reasonably priced hotel with adequate facilities. The rooms are spacious and the food is pretty good. The service, however, is a little slow, and the beach nearest the hotel, Colva, is not suitable for young children.

Nice and clean, at the past was luxurious hotel
Near to beach and main roads
Nice and clean, at the past was luxurious hotel. But it have not updated. Not far from the beach and main streets. The rooms are small but cozy. The pool is large but the water is not changed but only chlorinated. Breakfast is good and hearty. Staff friendly and caring.
