“think again before you eat here!!!”
Reviewed 28 May 2013

The food here was just about average.The service was slow even compared to indian time. Not a place we would reccomend. Although at first appearance with the so called lady showing you to your tables, from then on it just goes downhill.
The bar upstairs has a great view which is about the best thing about it. The bar saff really don't know what they are doing so don't try to order anything diffrent it just confuses them.

For the price the hotel is very good with friendly staff and the beach is just 2 minutes walk. there are a lot of eateries around the hotel which offer Indian, Chinese and Goan cusine. Overall I had a very good experience at La Ben Resort and would recommend it to my friends and relatives.

The stay in this hotel was totally unplanned. We visited Goa for 4 days but had booking for 3..so decided to stay the last day of trip at La Ben. This hotel is like 3-4 minutes walking from the beach. Its economical and nice. The people here are helpful. Rooms arent luxurious but u aint paying huge amount. Its value for money I will say. Rooms are clean so as the bathroom. Have the basics u need for stay just wish they had a TV a bit bigger than what they have. Anyways we really liked the hotel and the owner was also really nice and interacted with guest. The food is just awesome in this resort. The roof top restaurant gives a nice feel in the night. Chill out at that place. Overall had a nice stay.

Room Tip: stay in the 1st floor

It was nice experience staying at La ben. Main advantage is it is very close to beach and second advantage "Sagar Kinara" PURE VEG rest. is just in front of hotel. There is no swimming pool in hotel but that is not a big deal.

Reviewed 22 April 2013

When we arrived at 12 noon, they tried to give us a ground floor room, which was all dark and depressing, but when we said we'd go elsewhere, a room with a balcony overlooking the garden restaurant suddenly opened up on the top floor, for the same price. That was good value for money. La Ben is a three storey hotel, built before the regulations of height came in for coastal properties. It's nicely located, not too close but not too far from the beach. Though the decor is not too impressive, it's a neat and clean place. Spoke to the owner Mr Lawrence (the "La" of La Ben comes from his name) and he says his son, recently returned from Europe is focusing on improving the restaurant. The day we were there, they had Rajasthani Folk singers in the restaurant.

Room Tip: Get a room upstairs overlooking the garden restaurant.
