"Sterling Vagator beach property is..."

  • 3.4/7
  • Posted 7 years ago
Sterling Vagator beach property is an excellent location. Excellent space in resort but all facilities were poor; rooms in bad shape, property being renovated. I was in there from 3 march to 6th march 2007. Everything in resort need renovation the staff, the rooms the landscaping etc! 22 acres of property in decaying structure, but the view is excellent- Chapora fort on the Vagator beach.

Best Experience: For the first time in my holiday I only walked & trekked around the Chapora fort, the village, the Vagator beach, the Shiv Mandir, the fish marketů nice relaxed holiday we had. All food cooked by us in our resort room, hence home food for us. Morning sea walks.

Worst Experience: Worst experience was room furniture all needs replacement. Staff looked with low mood. No major activity by resort people - the activity room was a junk house.

"We travelled to Goa in..."

  • 4.4/7
  • Posted 7 years ago
We travelled to Goa in the third week of January. We stayed at Sterling as we got discounted room rates owing to the tie-up

Sterling has with the organization where my husband works :)

The resort is located in the Bardez region of North Goa, on the Vagator beach (though it is not as such right on the beach). It

is a very short drive from some of the other famous goan beaches like Anjuna, Calangute, and also the Morjim beach which is

famous for its Olive Ridley turtles.
Another attraction is the Chapora fort which is just a 10 minutes uphill hike from the resort.

Having said that, the resort itself is sort of split into two sections. The main section (which has most of the rooms, the

kitchen, the dining hall, the swimming pool, and the entrance to the resort !) and the section of a couple of huts at the

beachfront (alongwith a kerala massage centre). The main section is located at a height from the beach, and the beach is

separate from the beachside huts by a 70 steps staircase. The beach is NOT at all visible from the main section. So for a

beachside stay one should either opt for the beach side huts (in which case you need to trek the 70 steps staircase

everytime you need to go to the main section for food, taxi, car etc.) or opt for another hotel :)). We stayed in the main


The resort has a peaceful environment with lots of cocunut trees and plantation. The construction itself has a period feel to it

(and it probably is an old construction). The rooms are spacious. But they arent very maintained e.g. out of the two rooms,

one had a faulty AC and you coulnt be sure if the geyser would be in a good mood to give you some hot water for a shower !
The staff is not rude, but they have a very laid back attitude. They kind of leave you to fend for your own. e.g. if you use the

crockery provided in the attached kitchen, they wont wash it for you, and it can lie there as it is for as long as you stay...
They have no tourist brochures or guides for a list of places to visit.

The food was fresh and well-prepared most of the time. The service however is a bit on the slower side. If the hotel is having a

large group for dinner/ bkfast at the same time, then the quality of service, and of the food tends to drop considerably.

About the place, it goes without saying that Goa is a beautiful destination. Every evening we were treated to mesmerizing

sunsets (Vagator is a beautiful, uncrowded beach and is a great place to watch an unforgettable sunset). If you are at

Sterling, you must not miss an early morning or evening hike to Chapora Fort (yes, it\'s the one in the movie Dil Chahta Hai).

The view from there is absolutely fantastic, and one could spend hours sitting there and staring at the sea below.

Apart from the more frequented beaches of Goa, I would definitely recommend Palolem beach in exreme South Goa, and

also the Morjim beach (right next to the Vagator beach). The countless birds that flock the morjim beach (and look like white

dust from a distance) is a not to be missed sight.

"The Resort's stunningly located. Upkeep..."

  • 3.7/7
  • Posted 9 years ago
The Resort\'s stunningly located. Upkeep is poor. The pity is that the staff does exactly nothing to add to the joy of the holiday. It\'s not that they are rude. It\'s just that there seems to have been no training whatever in basic hospitality principles. Comparisions are unfair - but it does remind you of Govt managed resorts in the old days!

Best Experience: There is, unfortunately, no \'best\' experience within the Resort itself other than walking around and enjoying the setting. The sunset as you walk down the footpath in front of the large bungalow at the right edge of the property is stunning.

The \'best\' lies on the beach itself and in walks in Vagator and Chapora villages and upto Chapora fort. My \'best\' was the quiet, civilised ambience at the Mango Tree restaurant at the head of the road and the friendliness and honesty of Ganga, my motorcycle taxi driver. You can ask for him at the Anjuna petrol station.

Worst Experience: Nothing in particular. Can somebody do a workshop for the Sterling staff on How to Smile and can somebody teach them how to shave properly and dress properly when dealing with guests?!
