“Stay only if you want to avoid Indian crowd”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2011

Stayed here for 1 night before moving on to Terra Paraiso. Quite near to Tito's and baga beach.

The rooms were not good, and smelled of moisture. Felt it was a bit overpriced also. The crowd was predominantly foreigners, and had a good time at the open bar.
The good thing is they have reserved shack and sun beds for the patrons, which was a relief.

had a really unforgettable time on Saturday night, when almost everybody went to Tito's and we had a great romantic candle light dinner at their beach shack. Felt like we had exclusively booked the whole beach for ourselves.

Except for that, nothing good about it.

Very pathetic service.
Food comes 2 hrs after ordering.
Lots of flies in the food.

They charged us for family room and gave us a very small room.
Room ceilings are leaking. Food quality is also pathetic.

No value for money. Management is very rude.
Rooms are not the way they have shown in website. Swimming pool is very small and very dirty.
Please avoid.............

if anyone is planning to stay at this hotel...my suggestion would be to not make the trip at all...the hotel is unhygienic, unmaintained and in an absolutely worst location..right next to a funeral place...obviously u dont want to see a funeral place of the hindus everytime u turn towards the hotel...the rooms are infested with cockraoches and bed bugs, the bathrooms are dirty and no hot water facility, showers dont work. The so called restaurant lacks even a good flooring and fitted only with loose unkept broken tiles which can land u in a hospital if u are not careful while walking on it. The dining area is infested with flies..one cannot think of eating the food served forget enjoying it...the staff is helpless and they know the situation...they will only listen to your complaints and will not even tender a simple apology...this shows that they are accustomed to listining to these complaints from all their guest....even the manager is unconcerned. So unless u want to take charge of the hotel mismangement and spoil your holiday...pls pls pls do not ever book in this hotel even if someone offered the rooms free of cost.
i had booked this thru make my trip...my suggestion to them is to black list this hotel from their recommendation to their customers... this hotel calls itself 3 star...its not even worth quarter star....its our worst experience amongst all our holidays.
Also forgot to mention about the water accumulation in the room when it was raining in the night.....absolutely not acceptable....

After hours of net and brain storming we zeroed on this hotel just because of its proximity to the beach, even after reading some pathetic reviews.However it turned out to be a nice pleasant surprise.Our first brush with the reception was anything but good.But the room was good.the property is very nearer to the beach which came handy for us.we relished the food a lot .the restaraunt staff was friendly which made it up for their slow service. the house keeping was pathetic.hot water was not available and drinking water was supplied only after repeated requests.overall its a good place to be, if u want to hang out at the beach for more time.

Room Tip: book early.

Let me first request all the readers of this review that please do not fall in the trap of the website of Estrela Do Mar. As usual the pictures shown at the website were of the time when the resort was newly constructed.

I booked the resort under the package 3 days 4 nights package + one day complimentary from their side. Now see what I got.

1) Booking confirmation was late.
2) When you reach the entrance of the resort it is crowded with taxi Cabs. (You have to come out again to park your vehicle to the so called backside parking.)
3) The resort was too con justed, built on a small piece of land.
4) The reception is pathetic. There itself you get an idea that your decision of booking at this resort was totally wrong.
5) Welcome Drink was O.K.
6) Reception Staff looks like housekeeping staff. They make you wait there for long time and finally allot a shabby room whereby there were used and unchanged pillow covers and bed covers of earlier customer and loose wires with no proper electrical fittings to have sufficient light.
7) We have to call again and again for the extra beds.
8) A.C. runs on its willingness (Thanks to frequent power cuts)
9) The maintenance of the room is poor.
10) Swimming pool is quite similar to a bath tub. (Don't bring your swimsuits at all if you really wish to stay here since the tank is always full or crowded with number of people at a particular time. Its better to have a bath in bathroom wearing swimsuits than to swim there)
11) Breakfast is arranged late by 15 to 20 minutes than the stipulated time of 7.30 a.m. So, never go there on time. Food quality is like on Dhaba or a standard restaurant.
Note.: We found one dead fly in our upma. We bring this fact to the person in charge over there. But, no regrets, sorry s or apologizes from there side. The person just took the dish to the dust bin and cleaned it. The cockroaches were running in between the cutlery arranged while buffet break fast. The location of dining (breakfast/lunch/dinner) was wrong in first place. There were 4 to 5 Cats wondering here n there below your tables. No proper Light and Fan arrangement was in place over there.

We checked out of resort leaving on our complimentary add on day, for the above reasons and one major reason that the resort staff could not attend our complaint of not getting hot water since 6.30 a.m. till 9.30 a.m. We returned to Pune without having a bath. When the staff realized there mistake, it was too late. They did not anticipate this and took this incidence very lightly.

The list of things missing from the this resort were:

Courtesy, Apologies, Sorrys, prompt action and reply, responsibility, accountability, careless attitude, cleanliness, hygiene, good food quality and so on.....

This was our experience during our stay from 29th May till 2nd June 2011.
So, decide yourself before booking here ....

Firstly, like other reviews have said, do not be fooled by the website pictures. The reality is far different. Its actually laughable looking on their website after experiencing the worst start to a holiday we have had.

We were firstly taken to a room that had crumbling plaster coming off the walls, a dirty bathroom and an extremely loud air-conditioning system. We asked to move and were given another room that was pretty much the same. The bathroom is very basic and had a very strong smell of drainage and urine. We couldn't sleep at night because the air-con system is like having a car engine reving constantly in your ear.

We had reserved this hotel for 3 nights and because we hadn't paid for it we decided to leave after the first night. After an argument with a very rude hotel manager (who shouts at his staff agressively and laughs at customers) we paid for one night and left.
