Would love to see the restaurant operating in low season too! Rooms were in great condition with lovely linen, towels and and actual shower separate from the toilet! The pool is highly chlorinated but very refreshing, we were lucky to have a room with a balcony facing towards the pool area. 2 min walk to General store.

Stayed for 3 nights during May. Area VERY quiet, lots of shops & restaurants closed for season. But, a lovely area - hotel situated within main village, beach is 15 minutes walk. Nice beach with some water-sports, beds & bars. You MUST eat at Sharmina's - very cheap & tasty food round the corner from hotel. Hotel itself well maintained.... More

Large, spacious and clean rooms. 5 minute walk from the beach and shops, supermarket and restaurants within a 1 minute walk left or right of the hotel. Wifi was okay and you could get it by the pool (just). Fridge in the room was a great addition (kept the beers cold!!!). Also, staff very friendly and attentive.

Me and my husband had our first trip to Goa to celebrate our wedding anniversary and chose the south on advice of a friend. We stayed at the Star of the Sea Benaulim as part of a package deal. It is a basic hotel but everything you need. The staff are really friendly and any thing you want they are... More

We have just spent two weeks at Star of the Sea and thoroughly enjoyed it. We had an enormous room overlooking the pool, and cleaned whenever we requested it. Our room was basic, as we expected, but clean and comfortable with ample storage space and two balconies. Lots of light switches that don't seem to do anything but no problem!... More
