First of all this is a veg place in a place like Goa. Moreover the place might have been good in past but not at all maintained now. Around 250m from the beach. Not at all worth spending more than a day. Value for money is very bad. Room service is damn slow.

Me along with my friends stayed here in the month of January'17 and we were extremely depressed for choosing this hotel for our accommodation after we experienced very poor services and facilities such as the food is pure vegetarian and the food they serve is totally unhealthy,...

BUT THE MOST DISTURBING ASPECT IS THAT TWO FIXTURES NEAR THE ENTRANCE DOOR ON THE CEILING THAT APPEARS TO BE SPY CAMERAS! One thing most travelers notice is that the public...

We decided we would spend one night in cavossium on our way through from candolim to palolem. We were left very disappointed with this location due to the hygiene of the hotel!

Very poor value for money. Tired, run down, grubby. Basic accommodation like this can be found for a fraction of the price. Rejected two rooms on arrival and settled for the third as least awful. Stained lumpy mattress was eventually changed after one weeks complaining. New one more comfortable, but still with old stains (urine ?). Turned it to the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The first ever Resort in South Goa Old Anchor has cast its spell on one and all. Here, from dawn to dusk, you can see the earth & the sea resting in one another's arms & dreaming of waves, tides, clouds, sands & lush green palms. Where you can succumb to timelessness with no schedule to follow except those set by the tide. Goa echoes with the magic of its natural panoramic beauty, beaches temples and churches with their distinct style of architecture, colorful festival, a rich cultural atmosphere and above all friendly and warm people. Silver sands, cool sea breeze, the parties at the shacks, water sports, swimming with the Dolphins or a lazy cruise down the river, what ever makes your holiday. Goa has it all. And there’s no better place to drop anchor in Goa than at The Byke Old Anchor Resort. You have the river on one side, a pool in the middle and the sea on the other side. Invigorating warm sun above and cool green shades below. The resort has 240 Deluxe bedrooms. ... more   less
