“Nice location, reasonable price.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2014

We had booked a Swiss cottage through makemytrip.com which was very comfortable. The checkin and checkout were quick, no issues. The resort is on the beach and served dinner on the beach, which was an added advantage. The ambiance and food was good. The buffet breakfast was quite monotonous. Good for 2-3 days stay. The rates are reasonable.

we stayed in this resort from 9-12aug. we travelled by car from Mumbai and getting there was easy as we used google maps and no issues . the check in was very quick . the resort is very close to the beach. we took half board and that is must if you book this resort as its far from the main street with all food joints. the breakfast and dinner was good. staff were ok. we took 2doulbe and it was good as it had 2 bathrooms. not so clean but manageable for short stay. they provided with day tour, which was good but when they stop for lunch there was only one restaurant and nothing nearby. it would be better if they stop where there are 3-4 restaurants for options. over all it was ok for the price we paid. I would recommend this resort for my friends.

Resort is perfectly located on the beach with 5 mins walking distance, service and staff are not that good. Sad part is buffet breakfast which is not that exciting, even pool is very small. If you can shell more money then higher category rooms are worth staying.

Room Tip: Do not stay in Base category room !!!

It’s a budget hotel with small, closed lobby type entrance but neat and tidy rooms. Staff is nice and responsive. Do not expect luxury treatment as you are not paying for the one. Breakfast buffet is good, filling and hygienic. Beach is not far away from this property, everything you need is in closed proximity.
I can recommend this place if you are a gang of friends visiting Goa, not looking much to spend on stay and looking for a descent place.
Overall: average hotel with comfortable stay

Do's - Book 4-6 months well in advance
Don't - Don't over expect 5 or 7 star amenities.
Great thing - Proximity to beach
Not so great thing - Breakfast spread is just ok and rooms are tightly packed.

My rating - 4/5

Room Tip: Pool side facing on ground floor (is noisy) but recommended over others (which are noisy too)

Estrela do Mar is value for the money. You get what you pay for. Breakfast was satisfactory by South Indian standards. The housekeeping staff and porters went out of their way to make you feel comfortable. The room was kind of musty and crawling with critters but that's what you get for a budget price. Pool was on the small side and the hotel is not far from the main road, definitely walkable. There is also a convenient taxi hub right outside the hotel gates and easy access to the beach albeit a bit far. Pictures and brochures can be deceiving. Wait staff spoke very little English and you had to purchase WiFi for use. Would be better to use the free Wifi at area restaurants.

I stayed during the peak monsoon from 4th august to 8th august n we were group of 6 people. We had made an online booking for 3 Swiss cottages well before in advance.

Food:- jus manageable. Our room tariff included complimentary breakfast which was not so good. It felt that the hotel is having buffet breakfast jus for the sake of it.
But u can definitely manage with food as its not so bad.

Staff:- housekeeping staff is really good.
Front office and managers are very bad .. They are horrible.. They aren't enough groomed to be in hospitality industry.

Location: superb..nothing like it.

Access to beach: superb.. They have private walkway to beach which is not so great but beach is accessible and one can easily play there.

Room: ours was a Swiss cottage, as it was monsoon it tends to invite all kinds of insects n bugs which we there in our rooms plus cockroaches all over the bed.
Housekeeping was very helpful to get over them.

Swimming pool- small pool with no music available.

Reception n lobby area- horrible.
I got a shock seeing the reception.

Wifi- no free wifi anywhere in the hotel. Its chargeable at whopping rs.125 per hour.

Bike n car rentals : available right outside the hotel n also on the main road. Better to take it from the main road.

Overall we had fun as we were in a group.not advisable for newly wedded couples or any couples.

Since we were travelling fro Bangalore , i had asked the hotel reservations manager to keep a ball ready for us over an email around a week in advance.
On my arrival i checked on the same n they said they will do it in sometime and it could happen only after two days and that too in regular follow ups. Managers and all the front office staff is horrible to the core..

Please carry whatever u need as hotel will not provide anything extra at all.

Room tips: please opt only for Swiss cottages , they are really good and up to the mark.
