The experience was really good. Really clean and neat rooms. This was the second time we visited. The hotel is around 1 Km away from the beach. Ideal for walking too, although a bike or a car would be good. One negative was that the hotel staff is a little partial and biased towards foreigners. Benaulim beach is really peaceful,...

This was our second stay at the Star of the Sea and find it an ideal hotel to explore the area. The staff are always helpful and friendly. The rooms are basic, but clean and the rate includes breakfast, which is at the Blue Lagoon restaurant on opposite side of the hotel pool. The menu is limited, but freshly cooked...

Star of the Sea is pretty much like most of the hotels in Benaulim to look at. India is India so you shouldn't expect pristine, magazine featured boutique hotels. They are what they are - friendly, homely and clean. Our room was a balcony room overlooking the pool. Big enough, well equipped and kept clean. Staff were friendly and helpful....

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.
