OK so, the main reason I chose this was that it had a pool. After a week in a beach front cabin Id already decided I needed a pool. Id even read the TA reviews and decided this place was going to be ok. I booked by accident, 5 nights, one more than needed. They werent interested in helping me...

Stay at SOTS many times. Booked for this year as usual. Reserved room as we left last season and left our usual box of holiday equipment with the staff. Phoned to confirm arrival time and told booking cancelled- two weeks before we traveled. No excuse, apology or reason. Management of the accommodation must take the blame. When we did arrive...

Good sized room with wifi, a/c, nice shower with plenty of hot water. Lovely clean pool but not enough sunbeds or brollies. Good restaurant serving freshly prepared food. Central location for supermarkets & shopping. 15 minutes walk to the beach. Plenty of restaurants nearby, all reasonably priced. One or two take credit cards giving a good exchange rate.

The experience was really good. Really clean and neat rooms. This was the second time we visited. The hotel is around 1 Km away from the beach. Ideal for walking too, although a bike or a car would be good. One negative was that the hotel staff is a little partial and biased towards foreigners. Benaulim beach is really peaceful,...

This was our second stay at the Star of the Sea and find it an ideal hotel to explore the area. The staff are always helpful and friendly. The rooms are basic, but clean and the rate includes breakfast, which is at the Blue Lagoon restaurant on opposite side of the hotel pool. The menu is limited, but freshly cooked...

We went to the hotel to ask for rooms. They said no rooms available. But then I checked online , I found rooms! So I booked it! They lied because they said...

Star of the Sea is pretty much like most of the hotels in Benaulim to look at. India is India so you shouldn't expect pristine, magazine featured boutique hotels. They are what they are - friendly, homely and clean. Our room was a balcony room overlooking the pool. Big enough, well equipped and kept clean. Staff were friendly and helpful....
