“Excessive pricing and shabby”
Reviewed 28 December 2012

Booked for three nights to recover from a long haul flight and as it was five times the normal room rate, expected five star luxury.
I should have seen warning messages, the booking confirmation required three phone calls from the UK before anyone found my reservation..
On arrival, they were prepared and even upgraded us to a suite.
The rooms were grubby, mildew on the bathroom tiles in need of a lick of paint.
Bed uncomfortable
The staff were surly and only responded when spoken too without any smiles.
I would not recommend and shall not ever stay there again.

Room Tip: Instead of Benaulium, go to Colva, the next beach up the coast with a far better selection of rooms

Lotus resort is placed near to Benaulim beach. The main plus point for the hotel is the serene benaulim beach. This beach is not crowded and is very clean. All water sports are available at the beach but try it after visiting some other beaches. The famous beach shacks add to the beauty of the beach.. Resort is located at 5 mins walk from the beach. Resort is nice and cozy with deluxe, standard rooms and suite. We had opted for suite. It was a nice one bedroom, kitchen and living room apartment. The restaurant is nice and food is good. Breakfast is complimentary We had a pleasant stay. We hired a bike to roam .We shoped near Colva beach.

Room Tip: Choose Suite

There was nothing that we could really like about this resort... I had booked this through makemytrip.com and the site had actually recommended it!!! The staff doesn't really bother whether you are there or not, rooms are very small for the whooping INR 4000 that they charge for, pathetic is probably a mild word for their service and the food is tasteless!!! The breakfast included had on offer very oily puri bhaji, extremely sweet shira, a bad porridge. The chef at the "eggs to order" section didn't seem to bother for Indian guests at all... He was busy serving the foreigners only! I definitely will not want to go to this place again, as it has nothing really great on offer!!! It was a total put off!!

Room Tip: Don't ever book this hotel!

Visited: Nov end 2012.Lotus resort is placed very near to Benaulim beach in South goa in margao . The main plus point for the hotel is the serene benaulim beach.. This beach is not crowded and is very clean. All water sports are available at the beach. The famous beach shacks add to the beauty of the beach.. Resort is located at 5 mins walk from the beach.
Resort is nice and cozy with deluxe, standard rooms and suite. we had opted for suite. It was a nice one bedroom, kitchen and living room apartment. Place was good but without sea view. The restaurant is nice and food is not best but good. breakfast is complimentary and served nice. Swimming pool provided is also nice, but apart from carom no other indoor games are there. but We had a pleasant stay in all
you have to have your own vehicles if you are going there as this area is quite far away from the North Goa. But the serene beach and all the water sports and quite a nice scope for shopping make it completely worth the travel. Recommended if you want to have a nice peaceful getaway at a wonderful beach. :)

Room Tip: Suites in particular are very nice and cozy..

This was a long awaited vacation for our family. We looked up this hotel on trip advisor and booked through venere.com. We arrived in the afternoon at the resort - we were offered a room upgrade (Room No. 104 on the ground floor) which we accepted. The room was spacious but the bathroom was a bit small; the AC could have been better. It is just a few minutes walk to the beach. The beach here was clean and not crowded - this is exactly what we had wanted - a quiet vacation. Breakfast was complementary, not great but it was OK for us. Food at the resort's restaurant is good but a little more expensive compared to Johncy and Pedro at the beach (approx. 5 mins walk). The swimming pool was clean and my daughter really enjoyed herself. The staff were very courteous and helpful. A good place to stay if you plan to take a quiet beach vacation.

Room Tip: Ask the manager to show you available rooms - Rooms on the first floor have a balcony.

At the first site I feel in love with it. The hospitality is amazing. Loved the Buffet Breakfast with fresh juice and plenty of other items. The swimming pool is also clean. The hotel is very near to the beach almost like 200m if you know the short cuts. Also the hotel can arrange for anything you require. Had a great stay at the Lotus Beach Resorts.

Room Tip: In case, you have too many people ask for a better and larger room at no extra cost! Also if you ne...

Visited this resort on 1st week of July,2012.
Accommodation: We booked a suit with bed room,dining and kitchen,refrigerator,AC,hot water,TV. The kitchen is full of all ready to use utensil. Bed room is not very specious, but enough for 1 couple. The dining is really specious. Bathroom is little bit old. Over all it is very good.
Food: Food tests as good as Maharastrian or Goan dishes.
Location: Location is good. It takes hardly 4-5 minutes walk from the resort to Benaulim beach.
Staff: Very polite and friendly.
Over all: We felt like a home @ Benaulim. Will visit again.

Room Tip: Go for the Suits it is the best.
