“Perfect for a family vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

Martin's Comfort has been our chosen place to stay ever since they set up a few years ago. It's perfect for families. We've been there for week long stays at least half a dozen times and they are still the best bet in the area. The staff is extremely courteous and helpful. The restaurant Martin's Corner (the mother ship so to speak) is just across the road and serves some of the best Salcette cuisine and they've won awards repeatedly for it. The pool is well maintained, the rooms tidy and comfortable.
The beach (super secluded, shallow for a mile with clean sands) is a short walk across a village and some paddy fields and not a popular beach so fairly private! The sunsets are spectacular and the beach is known locally as the Sunset Beach, Betal Batim. It's far from busy roads and towns and really far for the party circuit and flea markets up north so not suited for those seeking all that action. No fitness center, kids activities, spa etc but who needs any of these when there is the wide open beach all to oneself, long winding, empty village roads, cycles on hire and the odd paper back to sink into. All in all, a really calm little oasis to chill out and unwind.

Nice and clean hotel in Belbatim, about 30 minutes from the airport in Dabolim (take a prepaid taxi - 600 rupies), small but clean swiming pool, about 10 minutes walk to the beautiful sunset beach, very friendly and helpful staff, a good restaurant (Martin's Corner) nearby, breakfast could be better.

Room Tip: all are nice

We stayed 3 nights and had the most relaxing break ever. The kids enjoyed the pool right up till our departure from the hotel. The food at Martins Corner and the ambience is fantastic. The staff were very polite. Thanks Nazareth for making our stay so memorable. The breakfast is very basic but still very good. Will definitely like to come back for more.

I am one of the thousands of fans of Martin's Corner the famous restaurant and that was the reason to stay here so that we can make most of our food experience. This is a decent and peaceful property and is some 1 KM walk from the beach.
The rooms are value for money. The staff was okay but can be more courteous and bear a smile. They have complimentary breakfast which is just about okay.
Overall, I did not mind this place but nothing great as well. Can be a good place when you want a peaceful, long holiday and are not too keen on staying right on the beach.

A simple place not far from the beach but with excellent facilities worth of a starred hotel.
The rooms are well appointed, clean, with WiFi.
A nice pool in the middle of the buildings gives a perfect holiday feel.
Attentive service from well trained staff.
An opposite is the famous restaurant Martin's Corner owned by the same family. So you are sure not to starve.

Room Tip: Book a room at pool level so you have direct access from your veranda

The whole place as you enter envelops you. There is a peaceful serenity about this place. The staff are extremely friendly and very helpful, making every effort to ensure that you enjoy your stay there., The rooms are spacious, colourful and bright. The mattresses on the beds could be better but they are still comfortable. Each room has a balcony so you don't feel closed off. There isn't too much effort on the extravagant, but I would say it is just enough to give you the touch of a 5 star. The pool isn't massive but then neither is it tiny with a small kiddies pool. And the best part is the fact that the world famous Martin's Corner is literally right around the corner! And you can order the food from there if you don't want to try the Room service menu. All in all an amazing place to stay in for a long stay and even an overnight weekend getaway.
