We were two families with 9 year old kids visiting Karwar for the first time and were looking for a stay for four days. It being April, we were particular about wanting A/C rooms and as we were late in booking, this was the only good hotel available, basis the reviews. The hotel was deemed to be close to the beach, but actually it is around 4 km from the Tagore Beach. It overlooks the Sangam - where River Kali flows into the Arabian Sea As we arrived, we were greeted by the front desk and our formalities were completed very smoothly. The team explained the various sections of the hotel before we checked in to our room The rooms that we got had a balcony facing the River Kali. The rooms were very clean, though they were medium sized. We had opted for an extra bed in each room and that cramped the space a bit. The rooms are equipped with TV and coffee maker. The washrooms are fairly clean. There is an ample supply of basic toiletries The restaurant is alright. They mainly cater to a lot of Russian residents and hence the breakfast spread is more to their taste. However, for us, they offered us good Indian options - like Dosa, Idli, potato Paratha and Puris - not as a buffet spread but on order. This was a part of their breakfast package and we did not have to pay extra for the same. The food is alright and the servings are huge. The children loved the potato Paratha on their menu for breakfast For most meals, we ended up exploring Karwar town itself and amongst the few we had, we tried their Chinese menu and Indian Menu. The Chinese dishes were a complete disappointment but the Indian Menu was good. My advice to most here would be to stick to their Indian menu. Would recommend their Bhindi and the Goan Veg curry There is an entertainment center which is equipped with indoor games like Table tennis, carom, pool table and a few other indoor games. The children loved this area as this is right opposite the restaurant and while we waited for the meals, they would hop across to play. The staff here was very friendly and helped occupy the kids with activities like drawing and painting The pool in the hotel is very clean and well maintained. We spend one lazy evening here in the pool. There are water polo nets that are available for a quick friendly game. The pool lights are a little dim and hence, beyond 7pm, the pool is not very enjoyable Next to the pool is an open court for Throwball or Volleyball or even Badminton. The equipment for the same is available with the staff. There is also, a small field for football and for a rain dance The Spa facilities for the ladies is available from morning 9am to 6 pm while for the men, it extends a little beyond 6pm. Though I did not get down to using the same, my hubby and cousin did. The experience was decent and the prices for the services are very reasonable. For a full body massage, it is around 1200 plus taxes The gym is very basic but fairly decent. Has a few basic weights, treadmill and rowing machine There is a holiday expert available at the resort who can make arrangements for various trips and activities like boating, Snorkeling, Banana boat ride etc. We found the pricing really high compared to what is available in the town. Hence, we did not opt for the same A special mention to Mr. Bheem Singh, who greeted us on our first day at the restaurant. He goes out of his way to ensure that the children are comfortable and ensures that the food and service is available on time and is done to our taste. He realized that the children loved potato Paratha for breakfast everyday and on day Two, made sure that the same was kept ready for the kids. Thank you for the same The rest of the staff, at the front desk, spa and other facilities is very courteous and helpful. They are quite quick with their response and they are the ones who make sure your stay is good Overall, this is a good resort if you do not have any other options. The people and the service make it a good one. If you do have options closer to the beach, would definitely take those up.

Well located but quite far from the beach. The hotel was very insignificant and the rooms were congested but well maintained. Food at the hotel was not satisfactory but no deferral originates in check-in and checkout techniques. The staff at the hotel were compassionate, professional and cooperative. The interior and exterior presence of the hotel was great as well as there was activities for amusement was organised the management. The destination was value for money and I recommend this hotel for other travellers. I went along with my family and colleagues for relaxation and sightseeing purpose.
I had very unpleasant experience with booking of 3 rooms at sterling emerald Bay, Karwar. I booked 3 rooms for our family get together over Dasahara long weekend (October 2015). Booking was made 2 month in advance but just 2 days before our check-in I got call from sterling that our booking has been cancelled due to their some internal issue. I t was tough to get 3 room for long weekend in that short notice. They offered me with alternative arrangement in Karwar at the same rate 6000 per night), when they informed me of alternate hotel name I found same hotel is readily available At Rs 3000. I was shocked to get cheated by sterling resort people. My trouble didn't stop here, When I asked for refund of my advance money (Rs 13000) they said it will take one week of time but unfortunately they didn't refund my money in one week. I had to do follow up over phone & email then only they refunded my advance money that too without any interest. I had to bear extra expenses to book last minute rooms and compromise with quality as well. I found Sterling Holidays people unethical in doing business and treating customer/guest for a ride.
