“Good Accommodation, better food, excellent sea shore”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2012

Good place and ambiance, food good. 10 min walk to beach, with clean white sand.

Need to improve on price for quality in restaurant. Improve indoor activities. need to have spa or club.

Vehicle rental are very expensive. Need to have own vehicle to go around.

Room Tip: take a room on higher level with pool side view

The resort is in south goa very close to bealbatim beach, we stayed at the resort for 2 nights and the stay was comfortable and staff courteous. Food options are very less, either you need to drive to Colva beach which is a good 15 min drive or martins corner.. Resort food is average..

The Hotel is located in South Goa vey close to Betalbatim beach.It cost us about Rs 400 by prepaid taxi from Madgaon railway station.We did not get our preferred room since all rooms booked by a Company for a Conference.
The staff were courteous and polite.The rooms are nice and clean.We were provided with a Mini fridge and beverages which were chargeable.Taxis waiting outside the Hotel fleece the customers.The charges for 8 hours trip to North Goa was Rs2600 and Rs 2300 for South Goa.These were supposed to be off season rates.if your trip exceeds 8 hours which will always be the case ,if u are going for the boat cruise,u will be charged extra.
We were lucky since we had a local friend who gave us a local guy with a Jeep .(Basheer - 09823952192).His rates were reasonable.
We did not dine in the Hotel's restaurant since we were away for most part of the day.The food at Albert's place, just about 5 mins from the hotel is good and reasonable.Martins Corner is also about 15 mins away.Good seafood.
From Betalbatim beach u can walk all the way to Colva beach about 20 mins away.I would prefer to stay in a Hotel in North Goa since all tourist attractions are in this area.

I just returned from this place and the stay has been very memorable. The hotel is located very near to beach. Beach is just 10 min walk. The check-in was very smooth and quick. The receptionist, Roopali, accompanied us to our room and patiently explained about the amenities available and what amenities were charged and what were complimentary. We got the room with two balconies, one balcony was facing the garden and the other was facing a building within the property. The garden view was good.

The room service was very prompt. It never took more than 5 min for our requests to be attended by the staff. The 1st day, we noticed that the remote's batteries were down. We called house keeping and batteries were replaced in hardly 5min. The food was very tasty though it was a little expensive. If you can't find the dish of your choice, you can ask the chef to make it for you :D. The bar was also very good. The room was cleaned and the sheets were changed every day. The beers in mini bar were nominally priced. Bathroom was very spacious and clean. Complimentary bathroom accessories like shower gel, hand wash, shampoo were provided and these were very good. There is clothes line in bathroom, so we didnot have problem drying our clothes.

The room was very spacious and very clean. There is an electric kettle with complimentary coffee, tea and milk powder sachets. These sachets are given every day but extra sachets are charged nominally. If you drink herbal teas or green tea, you can easily make with the kettle given. There is an electric safety locker in the ward robe. You can set your own password or use credit card as key. The mini fridge was working properly unlike in our previous hotel. The LCD showed all major Indian channels and few foreign channels too. HDFC ATM was near hotel and is just 2 min drive. There is also a weighing machine in room :P.

The staff was very patient and helpful. We once had a little problem with the shower. The water was too hot. We called the house keeping and it was attended to immediately. With in 10 min, the problem was solved. Also, in the final bill, one extra beer and extra food charges were included. The girl at the reception, Monisha, promptly attended to this and these were removed from the bill. I read in several reviews about power cuts in monsoons. There were power cuts here too but power was restored within few seconds.

The pool was well maintained. There are indoor games like carroms, chess, PSP, table tennis etc in the hotel. It also has toys for kids. The day we were checking out, there were 28 check-outs. But despite this, our check-out was smooth and hassle-free.

Just be a little careful when using the bikes provided at the hotel. They arenot maintained properly. So it is better that you carry your driving license and get a bike from elsewhere. Also, the place has no elevator. So be careful to book ground floor rooms if there are any old people accompanying you.

Albert's Place is very near and great food is served there. The guy there, Irfan, is very friendly.

On the whole, I loved my stay here and would definitely come back again.

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.
