first of all sorry for writing to late. i went to goa in aug'13 between 15th to 19th. We were in lil bit tensed about our hotel. but we was so much happy after seeing our hotel n rooms. it was clean n cool. it was so near to beach, hardly 2 or 3 mins walking distance. atmosphere was also superb with rain between our trip. La Ben Resort was really affordable and cheaper than other nearest hotels with good staffs and also owner n his family. they all are supportive. I was missing so much goa n La Ben Resort. i will advice to all my friends to stay in La Ben Resort whenever they planning for goa.

Room Tip: all rooms are good

This hotel runs their own Restaurant in the Garden. Atmosphere is ok although it is advisable to reserve a table ahead of time. The biggest shortcoming with this restaurant is their smokers policy . Although smoking is officially prohibited in all Indian Restaurants, this place gives no attention. We were outblasted with Cigarette smoke from the 4 Belgian tourists sitting next to us. In the event you are a non-smoker, please avoid this restaurant, although the quality of food is very good. As it was not possible to stand the smoke further we decided to get our food packed. The cashier upon being challenged for charging parcel- packing services , told us that this is their normal policy. We wrote to the Senior Owner, complaining about our grievances and got no acceptable response. Bear therefore in your mind, non-smokers will have a rough ride in this restaurant.

Room Tip: This review refers only to the restaurant.

Having just arrived home from a week at La Ben Resort, I just have to write a short review on the hotel.

Take into account this is India, you are not staying in five star luxury in Knightsbridge. Having said that, La Ben is head and shoulders above the local competition. Superbly appointed, large AC rooms, and the whole complex is kept clean and tidy by an army of cleaners working tirelessly all through the day.

Staff are very pleasant and effective, and the owners make a point of being on hand to deal with any problems, or just to have a friendly chat.

The attached Garden Restaurant, rated the number one place to eat in Colva, served up some of the best food I have eaten. The attention to detail by waitors is superb, and the head chef is always on hand to either offer advice on what to eat, or even listen to what you want and adapt a recipe to suit you.

One thing that doesn't get mentioned enough is the Rooftop Bar. Order some food from The Garden below, and sit sipping cocktails upstairs watching the hustle and bustle of life as it all goes on down below.

One very minor issue was the lack of wifi, but with an Internet cafe just 20yds away, it's not an insurmountable problem.

You will not be disappointed that you stayed here.

Room Tip: Room 304 is only twenty paces from the rooftop bar to your bed.
