About The Byke Old Anchor


The Byke Old Anchor is one of the most famous resorts on one of the most beautiful beaches in Goa, Cavelossim Beach.

The resort welcomes guests with a complimentary drink and free entry to the exclusive La Samba disco where you can dance the night away. Nursing yourself the day after is easy when you can soak in the Jacuzzi, steam away in the sauna, or drift away with an Ayurvedic massage. Guests will find a variety of cuisine, including local Goan dishes, at the on-site restaurant, and meat lovers will be delighted by the pool side barbeques.

It was a very good holiday with family
faster checkin and out, Right next to the beach
Though the resort was an older resort, the rooms are maintained in good condition. It is a value for money resort with right next to the beaches. Except for slow service, the stay was pleasant and enjoyable.

This is not a good hotel
Location close to the beach
This hotel is not organized, food is pure vegetarian, TV not working, never changed the bedsheets during my 10 days stay, some days no water, other days only boiling water, toilet leaking.....
