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... More

We went to the hotel to ask for rooms. They said no rooms available. But then I checked online , I found rooms! So I booked it! They lied because they said... More

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.... More

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.
