Reviewed October 8, 2012

we had booked it through makemytrip.com. when we checked-in , the room was not ready. we were made to wait in a small dingy stinking room (307) for an hour before we were shifted to our room no.402. the room services were extremely poor. no response from the staff despite repeated calls. the room linen was stinking. the rooms were not cleaned on time. when we complained about bad services, the hotel manager Utpal Ghosh started blasting at my husband instead. this was the worst hotel experience i ever had. had i not done the payment , i wud have cheked out the next day. my sincere request to all the travellers to goa, plz plz dont stay in this hotel and spoil ur goa trip as i did.

I booked a standard room through goibibo.com.The check in is very odd at 2 pm.We reached at 8.30 am and wait up to 1 pm to get the room,wasted full the day.It is called beach resort but not look like that,no facilities near the beach from them.The positive things is that it is mid way of Calangute and Baga beach.The blanket and pillows are smelling.The room service and staff was good.The hotel entry road is not good.

Room Tip: Standard rooms are spacious.

We booked a luxury room. It actually had no windows, The room was fine neat and clean, but no view at all.Ok the hotel location is good. And if you are looking for a so- so hotel it can be considered. The ambience is not at all good. the only plus point being the location. It is close to the central area market,and the beach.hotel staff and room service was good.but the hotel is dingy, congested area.

Room Tip: you can go for the luxury rooms, if you plan to stay out most of the time. the other rooms are not g...

Estrela Do Mar does not quite look like a resort. Only thing good here is its excellent location. It is right at the centre of Calangute & Baga beach. The service & the food was horrible. The food was tasteless. The staff were not at all polite and they didn't have any sense how to talk with the guests. For asking an extra tea bag and milk power they say it’s chargeable! Not suited as a resort. The room services was terrible one had to call couple of times to get anything. The reception people didn't have any clue what there work is. It has such a huge area under its premises, but none of it seems to be maintained at all.

Sorry to say - highly NOT recommended. Not for anybody.

After reading so much bad remarks about the resort, Me and my husband had taken the risk to choose for our stay. It was for our Honeymoon. I was very worried about the reviews but it was my husband who gave me the courage We should go for it...also he told me that when u are in service industry one cannot have full Satisfication in anything and you cannot satisfy everyone. So leave your worries and enjoy..!!!!!! I must say the resort is located just 2 mins from the resort or i can say they have their private way to the beach. The food was nice. The rooms were beautiful. Staffs are courteous. Thumbs Up for the House Keeping Staff !!!!!! We made wonderful friends in the resort.

Overall i would suggest each and everyone to go for this resort. My stay was very special as it was our honeymoon and Resort is also good.

Room Tip: Rooms near the swimming pool is better, as you can enjoy the view of the pool and
