Estrela Do Mar Beach Resort
Ranked #19 of 125 Hotels in Calangute
Reviewed 1 July 2014

We as a couple stayed here during the last week of June. Booked the room through Yatra.com and got a good deal because of off season. The resort is right in between the Calangute and Baga beach. Easy to locate, the resort has its beach shack from the beach, then the swiss cottages and the normal rooms 5 minutes walk from the beach. We got a pool view room on the first floor, and i believe its the best standard room there. The pool is a very small one, forget swimming in it, its just for leisure. Then again why would you need a pool if you are in Goa and staying in a beach resort. The food here is quite good including the breakfast, compliments to the chef in this regard. Swimming in the sea was bit of an issue as the lifeguards shoo you away to the more crowded places either towards Calangute main or Baga main. That was because they could then monitor you easily. The beach is a bit dirty with plastics and broken beer bottles, but then its all of us to take the blame for it. Outside the resort you could find bikes and cars for hire easily with reasonable rates. Overall a very good experience, maybe would try the beach shacks next time as they were closed during the monsoon season.

Room Tip: Try for the pool side room on the first floor.

I would recommend this place if you really need to be near by beach. The food quality was ok and could have been better. I opted for the luxury room, but was little bit disappointed as it was not by pool side and was without any access to natural light and air and with very little privacy. When we checked in, the room was not properly clean and we had to ask them to clean it for us. The overall room service and staff experience was ok. I will rate it 3.5/5 mainly because of it's location. Also, I would suggest to opt for pool side room which has better ambiance. The overall experience was above average but not excellent.

Room Tip: Opt for pool side room.

We really enjoyed our stay at Estrela Do Mar during December 2013. We selected this resort for our honeymoon after a lot of research and our expectations were fulfilled. The best part of estrela was the food quality and ambiance, both at Patio and the shack.Room service was up to expectations. Also, the travel desk was courteous and they made our south GOA visit and Boat Cruise a memorable one.

We almost stayed for five nights there without any hazards and happy memories was followed. Though the room quality could have been better. The room where we stayed did not looked to me as deluxe one at the first look, though we paid for one.

I stayed in one of Swiss cottages, Plus points away from the main din of the hotel, walkable distance to the Calangute baga Beach. Service is Average, do not expect much from an all sold out hotel even in the off season. Bathrooms could have been well-designed. Found it very odd and not practical. Staff could have been more helpful in terms of negotiating with the cabbies who are parked outside the hotel. One has to bargain to get a good deal.

Overall, pleased with the location and the cottage but yes there is every time scope for improvement.

Room Tip: Swiss cottage is a better deal away from the din. Do not expect room service to be up to the mark...

We stayed in beach cottage in April.
While the hotel is good we had a very bad experience with the room service. While checking out we were charged for mini bar items which we didn't used. Very disappointed .

We had rented out 2 Swiss cottages for 4 days through a travel portal and didn't know what to expect . But our fears were dispelled as soon as we arrived. The cottages were a delight and it isolated us from the main hotel premises . These rows of cottages are at a 3 minute walk from the Calungute - Baga stretch of the beach . The staff were extremely competent at handling huge crowds and were prompt and courteous to our requests . The food was fine too , however the live music at breakfast with their soothing renditions of indian instrumental music was the clincher.
Would suggest that one opts for the cottages instead of the rooms as they seemed a bit cramped . The swimming pool is a bit small so a pool facing room may not be a good proposition either.
With regards to food , It's a good bet to opt for the bed and breakfast option instead of the package given that there are many options on the Calungute baga road to choose from . We loved our stay at Estrala do Mar resort and would surely pay them a visit again .
