Estrela Do Mar Beach Resort
Ranked #20 of 116 Hotels in Calangute
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Since this was the first time we visit Goa, we are lucky to got a place in Estrela Do Mar Beach Resort. While the property has been around for many years, the hotel's maintenance staff does an excellent job maintaining its beautification and its facilities. The hotel's staff is very friendly and very outgoing to all its guest.The restaurant is very near and have a very fun and entertaining atmosphere, serving up a variety of delicious cuisines from simple to casual. Overall it was such a nice experience and if again we got a chance to visit Goa we will choose Estrela.

Thanx

We were three families visiting Goa and after lots of research, we decided to go with Estrela Do Mar, primarily because of the location, also because there weren't many options left at the time of booking. Before check in I was skeptical about the hotel because of the mixed response it had on trip advisor. But I must say in all it was a very good experience.

Pros:

Friendly staff - particularly the restaurant. I forget the names of the people but they were very accommodating and flexible, even when we got drunk and wasted and asked for extra drinks beyond their working hours :-)

Rooms by the pool...I must say we got lucky here, our rooms were right next to the pool and we had a great time just because of that.

Location - walking distance (fairly long walk!!) to two of the most popular beaches Calangute and Baga, and also to titos lane...plenty of restaurants, bars in the vicinity and lots of shopping options too.

Rental taxi and bikes available right on the entrance of the hotel.

Cons:
the beach is a few hundred meters away, so dont expect to wake up and look out of your window and see the beach...in fact to reach the beach you have to walk through a narrow passage.

they dont allow outside food or drinks...even in your room. So either you drink at the fairly priced bar in the hotel or you sneak your bottles in with your luggage :-)

Overall :

Go for it and if possible insist on the pool side rooms...you wont regret it one bit.

Room Tip: Pool side...definitely

Hi folks! We stayed in this resort for three days .there were few initial hitches ....we were unhappy with the way the room looked ..the pic what they show on the website are different from the actual way the room looks .but the staff was pretty co operative they gave us another room to our liking .overall stay was very gud after that .the hospitality out there rocks .we would give full marks to the cooks .the food is really yummm.its two minute walk to the beach so that's pretty convenient. Go ahead n stay on this property.

Room Tip: Check out the pool facing rooms

Considering the hotel prices, it's undoubtedly super value for money...Just prefer not taking room on the ground floor, rest all is really good...very good food at very low prices if you order (buffette breakfast is just better than average), great service, nice n clean, nice little swimming pool to relax in the morning for an hour or two...its placed 2 mins from Calangute beach, so super location...we even got playing cards for time pass...bike and car rent right outside the hotel gate...the entrance might look a little weird, but as you go inside, it really becomes bigger and better....
Overall, a very nice place to be in, and surely super value for money...recommended!

Great location just near to Beach. We booked this resort solely in the review of TripAdviser, but we thankful to resort for wonderful arrangement. Food was good with very much varieties. Rooms and swimming pool was clean and well maintained. Staff also good. We only face issue of co-ordination in between reception members . would definitely recommend this hotel to family/frnds and love to visit again.
Tips: Nov-May - Best time to visit GOA. Water sports and Beach side shack started from Nov.

This was the most terrible experience we ever had when staying at a hotel. The story started at the time we reached hotel. the check-in time was 30 minutes though there were no guests present. They keeps us waiting in lounge (u can not say it lounge it is smaller than drawing room of mumbai 1BHK flat). We had booked 4 rooms out of which one was a family room. This is where the nightmare began. In spite of 7-6 complaints nothing changed. After a while it became a daily ritual to go yell at them and nothing changes. Some folks on the reception would just smile shamelessly. The cable TV in the room was screwed up. Nobody seemed to care about it. They really don't bother about the customer. You have to call minimum 3-4 times to get anything. Even for a simple thing like towel we have to wait for 50-55 mins and have to call 4 times.The worst part is they will ask for extra money for every thing that u do. If you need second towel on the same day they say they don't provide second towel on same day. the behavior of the manager and person at the reception is such that u will feel that they are president and prime minster of India. the worst part is even the owner of the hotel does not know how to speak with a customer who has booked 4 rooms in the hotel. I can go on and on but please stay away. Learn from my miseries. DO NOT FALL FOR THE PHOTOS ON THEIR WEBSITE!!!!!!!!! They wait for an instance to charge an extra money from you. It took us more than an hour to check-out and settle the bill because after every 15-20 minutes they will come with some or the other complications.
The hotel is actually not a hotel or resort but you can call him HOSTEL where a warden (in this case a hotel Manager) keeps strict control of the student and will punish them as and when he gets a chance.
