1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

Dear Traveller, I booked this resort online and was really excited and was looking forward to a good resort experience but to my disappointment, the resort is only good on website. To start with we were not given a room till 1 am i.e. around 5 hrs from the time we arrived in resort. There was not waiting longe other than the eat out area which was not atall comfortable after 14 hrs train jounrey. After long wait we could get the room but not to our satisfaction. We booked for executive room but the normal room looks better in photo than wat was offered to us. The resort is just 2 mins walk from the beach but the way to the beach was filthy. The staff was very inconsiderate when we requested for extension of 3 hr for checkout and bluntly said no. The breakfast was boring. If you can eat omlet daily in breakfast then this is good place to have breakfast. The only thing good in this resort i felt was the food taste. They really have a good sheff. I would certainly not recommend this resort. The only rating i have given is for the sheff who made nice food.

Room Tip: I would recommend Hotel tangarine which is a bit far from thhis resort but seems better. You can als...

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!

the resort is very cozy ,has beautiful landscaping and the beach is only 1/2 Minute walking inside the resort and the good part is that the beach is not at all crowdy and both the world famous beaches calangute and baga are just 7-10 min.walk away from the beach of estrella do mar . the food is excellent ,staff is caring ,rooms are well maintained and the pool is clean and safe for children .

Room Tip: my room was on first floor n was good

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.
