“Perfect for 1st time visit to Goa”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2013 via mobile

Pick this place if you are coming to Goa for the first time.
Location: Calangute-Baga, North Goa
Beach is walking distance from the hotel. Private pathway from inside the hotel will lead you to the beach. No need to pay Rs. 100-200 to cabs for drop to beach.
Accommodation: Rooms are small and cramped but if you are looking for a budget hotel with average facilities then this is the place to stay. Staff is well-mannered.
Food: Goa is full of places to eat so try not eating in the hotel as the food here is below average. Okay for a lazy breakfast but if you are foodie then go for the Portuguese breakfast. You will find many small cosy places to eat around this hotel.
The only drawback is the walk to the hotel from the main road. It's a good 20-min walk leading to the hotel from the main road. After dark the stretch is dimly lit and you may want to keep a torch and company handy!

Stayed for a few days in 2011 and now rebboked for a week in Dec - Jan..

Rooms - standard rooms are not that great.. I would reccomend the Luxury rooms.. if for a short stay that is..

Location - Great.. can walk to the beach and plenty of access to our rooms from outside without having to walk through the entire resort

Food - They were just ok.. but more expensive than worth it.. Would reccomend that you eat at any of the places neaby

Room Tip: Luxury rooms if you want to have th nicer ones.. the standard and executive rooms are not that great...

I got taken in by the exotic name and photos on website and booked two luxury rooms paying Rs 30000 in advance. However on seeing the cramped, dirty rooms and sleazy environment could not stay there and simply walked out after check in.

You look at Goa as a warm, hospitable tourist destination but the staff at this place is as cold, hostile and officious as a small town sarkari daftar of police station especially their manager Aniket. It seems the owners couldn't care less and the place is ready to shut down.

Don't make the mistake I made - go ANYWHERE else.

I had booked a family room in the hotel in june so prices were at least half of the season prices.
Pros:
1) Beach was a 5 minutes walk from the hotel.
2) Excellent room (one of the rare cases when the pictures on internet actually justified the room) ,great ambiance,the sofa cum bed was also good
3) Very prompt room service
4) Food was good too
5) Breakfast buffet was great,they had different menus everyday
6) The staff and reception were very helpful
7)Transportation option readily available outside the hotel (i.e scooty,bikes,taxis etc.)

Cons:
1) Prices of food items could be lowered
2) Ground floor rooms should have be modifed to allow more natural light since the only door to do so gives a full view of room to passerby ( bad to privacy)
3) More shops should be invited near the hotel else guest have to shell out lot of money to the scootywallahs for just for a basic amenity (the main road is quite far away )

Room Tip: First floor rooms will have a good view of sea

Dear Readers,

Please spend few minutes to read the realistic review. It was a terrible experience. Let me share it this way.

1) It never looks the same, the way it is projected in the internet.
2) The term 'value for money' is a false statement.
3) Doors of the room and bathroom are in worst condition and there are no proper latches
4) Plastic chairs are kept inside and outside the room to sit
5) The pathway/corridor is soo congested that its is hard to carry luggage.
6) The used plates from rooms are kept outside room which stinks the passers by
7) Bath rooms are hope less. You can see ants and insects. Door corners, tiles are awkward. No points to hang towels and clothes inside. The flush points leak. Instead of carpets, they put towels in floors which are slippery. Bathrooms make this hotel worse than two star hotel
8) Balcony is never cleaned.
9) In the family room, the Sofa cum bed is the worst part. It cannot accommodate two people and even when they arrange the pieces of bed they get scattered.
10) when it rains, the rain water comes inside the room. The flooring of the room gets went when you on A/C
11) In some rooms, A/C will not work properly. In the other room we had, the cable was not working. The refrigerator connection had a loose contact. We had to run around in changing the rooms.
12) Breakfast was never up to the mark.

Some of the other visitors also shared the similar experience with me during the stay. I feel awkward to write the things further. Over all it was a terrible experience.

My family members were disappointed with the stay. Further to this, if you wanna stay, its your wish. Because its your money.

The only good thing here was that, the staff in restaurant Mr.Aashish and Milan were good in service however the food was not up to the mark.

We had stayed at Estrela from 14 Oct13 to 17th Oct13.
First Positive - It was family holidays after a long time. Staff is very courteous & room service is prompt. Big heart winner - Beach is only 50meter away. We as family enjoy the beach very much
Pool is small but maintained very well. Vegetarian food is good

Negative - Hotel is very congested. At ground floor You need to keep you door closed for privacy. We have booked luxury room but quality wise it was just like a standard room of 2 star hotel. Bathroom are not good

Room Tip: Choose a Luxury room facing Pool if you like the crowd. If need privacy then go for room at first fl...
