“comfortable stay”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

we had stayed here in june this year. rooms are good,well maintained. as with all sterling resorts, this too is situated away from the main city. there is betalbetim beach just 10 min from the resort. then there is colva beach some 20 min away, where one can engage in water sports.
basically its a nice place to relax. better if u hav your own vehicle. we dint try much of food in the hotel. do visit martin's corner,one of the best restaurent in south goa.

Its a new property and hence everything is spick n span. The pool is very clean. But min depth is 5 ft and surprisingly no life gaurd and hence kids to be taken extra care of. Management would be advised to put a lifegaurd on duty immediately.

The rooms are superb...all the stuff that you would find in a typical 4 star + property. Staff are very courteous and helpful. The restaurant I must say is not all that happening. I found it to be a very dull place. Food is also average.May be another area of improvement. But then why complain when martins corner is just a 20 mins walk away!

Just to summarise:

Resort: 8/10
Rooms: 9/10
Staff: 7/10
Restaurant: 5/10
Swim pool: 8/10

Betalbatim beach is a 10-15 mins walk.
Colva beach/market is 4-5 kms.

Would like to stay in this resort in future again if coming to south goa

Room Tip: Ask for pool facing rooms!

Its a very well maintained resort. Not very close to market area so its really peaceful and very close to one of the unexplored beach of Goa (Betalbatim beach). Its just 10 mins walk from Resort.
The rooms are spacious and very clean with a small balcony to it. Room as TV, Mini Fridge, a wardrobe as well. The service was really good and the Staff was very courteous and helpful. They have a kids pool and big pool which is very well maintained and clean (Note: Proper Swim wear is compulsory).
The restaurant ambiance is great and has pool side sitting barring monsoon times. The service is a bit slow and be assured of getting freshly cooked food. North Indian food was good but Chinese and Mexican was not worth. Also Food is really really expensive and not value for money.
Resort also has a Play room. it has toys for kids and Carrom, TT, and Other board games which are free. Also they have virtual gaming like Wii and Play station which are on per hour chargeable basis.
Resort is 4 KM from Colva beach and 10 KM from Madgaon(Margaon) station and Market.
There are no shops, Restaurants nearby but if you have a vehical there are lot of options for Restaurants and shopping areas in 4-6 KM vicinity.

We really enjoyed our stay.

We were there on 16th June 2012 to 21st June 2012. Location of the resort is very good and is about 25 mins from Madgaon Railway Station, we came by a cab and the cab charged us Rs.450/= to drop us there (I bargained with them they were asking for 500). We were 4 Adults and 2 Kids . The Betalbatim Beach is just 10 mins walking distance it is a nice clean and scarsely populated beach (Just what we wanted). The Resort is just recently developed so the rooms are brand new and very spacious, equipped with A/c and Tea & Coffe Maker, also they had provided a Digital locker in the wardrobe and many other small small things which might be useful during our stay. Room service was a bit slow but that was ok we were never in a hurry. Overall, it is a beautiful property and the swimming pool was clean and most enjoyable and they have Holiday activity room also where in you could play carrom, chess, Table Tennis & many other games so the kids can have a great time. Staff is very co-operative and helpful and the North Indian veg food in the restaurant "Pebbles & Sand" we had was awesome and very tasty. It was a rainy day when we arrived in Goa and it continuously rained heavily for 2 days but the other 2 days were sunny. We did not want the guided tour provided by the Cabbies at the resort so I checked with the resort people for a self driven car but they discouraged me as the cabbies union people would fight with them so they suggested me to check at the nearby market so then I went walking down to the nearest Betalbatim Market which was 10 mins away from the Resort and enquired about a self driven car on rent, I could manage to get Maruti Sx4 on hire for Rs. 1200 per day from Mr. Joseph Cota - 9850477357, it was a brand new car and we used it to roam around for 2 days. We went to North Goa and also moved around in the South Goa. Getting a self driven car in Goa is hassle free but you have to be equipped with GPS and road map in order to move around there other wise you can end up losing all your time in finding places. Since we had the car we could go to calangute beach, Baga Beach, Fort Aguada, Miramar Beach, Anjuna Beach, Dona Paula Beach, Colva Beach, Taj Exotica, Gandhi Market - Margao, Majorda Beach, Benaulim Beach. We went to the Taj Exotica, its a lovely property they have and they easily let you go in for a stroll, there are no restrictions you can also go to their private beach and move around, they have a kids area where in the kids can play in the park and also there are computer games which they can play (Everything is free with out being a room guest. You can move around as much as you want.) Overall, It was total fun and enjoyment in Sterling and in Goa.

Room Tip: Rooms Facing the compound are the best ones large and spacious Double room with Double A/c's

It was a great experience at Sterling's Villagio. It is a beautiful property with all the modern amenities. Nice pool, with a separate one for kids, restaurant with good ambience, bar in front of the pool, activity area for the kids and most of all a very helpful team of people with a please all attitude.
Of course since it is in South Goa, you are sitting around 40 kms from Panaji. But again Colva Beach is just around 4 km where you find all the water sports.
A very good option for someone who just wants to relax.

I stayed at this hotel in June first week for 4 Days, we chose this hotel from SOTC box holidays. This hotel is just 15 Minutes drive from Madgaon railway station, around INR 400 by Prepaid Cab from the station itself. Its nicely tucked away in the south goan countryside, accompanied by Betalbatim beach (5-7 Mins Walk), Albert's Place-Nice Goan Restaurant (2Mins) and Seawaves Shack on the beach; Thats it! It is nicely hidden away amidsts Coconut palm trees and Farm Fields.
The rooms are decent as well, We stayed at Luxury Suite. The suite was pretty big and well furnished. The housekeeping was very active and they cleaned our rooms at regular intervals and got us things that we wanted in a jiffy.
The hotel also has a nice clean pool with Sundeck and Gazebos; and yes! you can also order drinks at the poolside. Do order a Yellowtail White Wine at the poolside, its superrrb.
Breakfasts was nicely spread and Fresh.

My stay at this hotel met my expectations and would like to stay here if in south goa.

Room Tip: "Opt for a Luxury Suite overlooking the pool" "Laze off at the poolside accompanied...

Landing at sterling with one bad experience before at Yercaud in the past, was keeping my fingers crossed. The moment we landed at Villagio till we left it was like home away from home. The team at the resort starting with Sajith, Monisha, the other ever smiling girl at the reception & the activities lady, Chef Hussain & the list goes on have always a smile on their face & ever ready to help. The Masti Dining package seemed to be good enough. Variety may be improved on that front. The resort was well maintaned, rooms were clean & crisp.
My Kid still speak about the auntys who gave them flowers & cake for the birthday :)

Kudos
KEEP UP THE WONDERFUL JOB

Some improvements suggested would be as follows-
>Sign boards are a MUST MUST MUST- Kept shuttling atleast 2 times past the resort.
>Booking voucher to carry a contact mobile number in case of emergency when land lines are down(was the case the day i checked in)
>Service at peak times needs to be better monitored ( in the restaurant) though must mention the refilling of the buffet was just superb.
>Curtains in the rooms are smaller than the door/ windows- needs to be altered or changed.
>Eye for detail can be improved- Just to give an example- The day I checked in the A/C remote batteries werent working & we really ran around to control the temperature.

Room Tip: I stayed in the room above the reception- If you would like ask for the pool facing rooms
