“excellent service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 December 2011

Spent 10 days chilling out in November 2011. The staff were excellent, couldn't do enough for us. Always smiling and helpful. Rooms were very clean, air conditioned, and superb towel sculptures daily. Martins Corner restaurant was excellent, we never heard any noise from it in our room. Camron restaurant was also really good. Fish Ka was a bit hit and miss. Pentagon in Majorda was excellent. Lovely laid back area, paddy fields, coconut plantations, not like the north where the traffic and way of life is frenetic. We will be back.

Having never been to this hotel previously my wife & I didn't know what to expect. All I can say is that this was a holiday to remember, lovely location, fantastic staff & exactly what we needed for a complete chilled out break. Some of the comments on this site really make me laugh regarding the apparently poor breakfast selection & the proximity of Martins Corner restaurant. All I can say is these people were either staying at a different hotel or are the sort of people who are never satisfied!

Found this after eating at Martins Corner (the famous cafe). Couldnt be happier. The pool was a refreshing place to swim after the heat of the beach. Very satisfied with it.

Also, staff went out of their way to help us with questions, arrange airport taxis, motorbike hire and tips for what to see while in the area.

Martins comfort is a good place to stay for travelers, who are fond of eating sea food. The well known martins corner restaurant is lcoated just opposite to this property. Infact both properties are of same owner. About the stay at Martins comfort:
Rooms: Small with dim lights, with dirty bes sheets. If you open the room door at evening then your room will be flooded with mosquitos, bed bugs, grass hoppers etc
Service: Keep demanding and see no one responds
Breakfast: Small continental buffet. But dont forget to order masala omlet made of 2 eggs. It tasted Awesome
Swimming pool: Never saw anybody in the pool in my stay of 5 days
Lobby: Average
Overall: Good place to stay in low budget, that too in the peak season

I booked this hotel based on the reviews given on this website. The hotel met all of our expectations! Our stay was very comfortable and I really have no complaints. Very clean hotel. We found the neighborhood very quiet. Nothing at all disturbed our sleep. Our room was overlooking the pool. The pool is small with a kiddie pool. Our kids enjoyed that. The pool was spotless, they cleaned it every morning. The staff was very hospitable. Mangal from Nepal served us breakfast each morning. He did it with a smile! The breakfast is not gourmet, but it was enough. We had omelets and fresh fruit every morning. The hotel is about a 10-15 minute walk, a very nice walk, to the beach. The closest beach is very secluded. You have to walk even further once your on the beach to get to the shacks that serve lunch and dinner. So, we ended up renting a small scooter for the week. It is a 10 minute rid to Betalbatim Beach. Martins Corner restaurant had excellent food and very reasonably priced. The service at the restaurant was very fast and they will even serve you in your room! They have internet but it is very slow and it will cost you 25 Rs for every hour. If I had one complaint, they should give the internet access for free. Overall, we enjoyed our stay at Martins and would definitely consider staying there again in the future.

Though the first thing that came to my mind was to write a recommendation for this hotel for everyone who want to visit the classic beauty of Goa in a rustic peace...It took me a long delay to write this review.
Better late than never, the charm of Martin's Comfort is that it surely attracts you to come again. I visited Goa in September 2010 and decided to trip the southern side and came across Martin's. From the moment we were picked up by Martin's Cab from at the airport till dropped back it was an awsome experience.
Coming to the point now..Martin's is NOT for the person who are used to of soundproof luxurious suites but for those who recognise an artistic charm and appreciate villageside.
Rooms are amply spacious and meticulously cleaned with complete privacy.
Swimming pool is a bit small but an eyecandy in night.
Room service is attentive and helpful.
Food is good but have it in Martin's Corner the restaurent, It's worth an experience!! Plus you'll feel proud to eat in a place which boasts of being favourite of many Bollywood faces and the great Sachin Tendulkar.
A peaceful short walk will take you to The Sunset Beach which you make sure visit at dawn/dusk..
Goa is impossible to be enjoyed at its best without a motorbike..Enquire at the reception desk for it and Freddy will come to your rescue...
Towards the conclusion of this SHORT note I must say... "For me Goa had >200 Kms Bike ride all over, An extremely Fun filled experience, Great Food and awsome sites and a Memorable stay in Martin's!"

Room Tip: Book your Rooms Early in Advance!!

We stayed in Martin's Comfort for two weeks in February 2011. This small hotel is very friendly, staff helpful, rooms clean and comfortable, pool small but fine to sunbathe around (until it loses the sun about 3.00pm) and to dip in. In all but one respect the location was ideal for us - pleasant walks to quiet beaches, plenty of choice of places to eat. Other than restaurants/shacks, we found nothing in the way of nightlife, but didn't miss it. The downside of the location was the hotel's proximity to Martin's Corner. Unlike some other reviewers, we enjoyed the restaurant's food but the live music/karaokye detracts from the peace of the hotel. The inclusive breakfast is very limited but adequate. Wireless internet access can be bought by the hour at a reasonable cost; we had our own netbook but saw other guests using the hotel's computers.
If you want to travel further afield, the hotel has a car and driver for hire at reasonable cost.
For eating, we join another reviewer in recommending Fish Ka - great food and drink and lovely atmosphere.
An indication of how highly we recommend Martin's Corner is that we have booked to go back next year.
