Value
Being around over two decades, Carina, a family run resort, set in the midst of lush green fields and tall swaying palms, in the village of BENAULIM, SOUTH GOA is an oasis of tranquility and relaxation, where time stands still and still a 8-min walk away from the unspoiled Benaulim beach. With a team of friendly and helpful staff committed to serve you, we are ideal for those on a budgeted holiday since we offer you value for your money. We are sensitive to your taste, your feelings and your preferences. After all we genuinely feel that every guest is very dear to us, not because we are in the hospitality business, but because we believe, this is our heritage. Amidst spacious and beautifully landscaped gardens and fruit orchards, the rooms along with our multi cuisine restaurant and large swimming pool add more spark to our popularity.

This is the worst hotel in Goa. It’s not even a basic hotel. It’s like some roadside motel manned by an extremely indifferent and rude man. It looks haunted and located in an isolated place. The washrooms are dirty, mirrors broken, rooms are stingy and smelly and food, esp breakfast is pathetic. Check the photos.

Just returned back from the Carina Beach Benaulim, with my 10 year old son. Beautiful kept gardens, theo loved his daily kick about playing football with staff. Nice rooms and comfortable. Staff are good and would do anything to help you and would always have a smile , but the biggest shout out goes to silvester on reception...a lovely man who goes above and beyond . Thanks carina beach for a wonderful stay

I spent 5 weeks at the Corina during February and March 23 and review it as a budget 3 star hotel. Located in a quieter area about 1 km from centre of Benaulim It has 32 rooms with extensive gardens and pool and is very quiet. The rooms are large and clean. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were mainly Indian food but the staff willingly cooked food to my liking. I ate there on an evening twice and the food was good. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay that there and would not hesitate to return

There is absolute peace at resort. Like one likes when on a holiday. There are swings for children. Pool for everybody. Lovely outside seating areas. Food is good. Staff is humble and polite. Trinity beach abd benaulim beach both are very close. Play area for kids is also there. Just one suggestion for management make pool area with partition for kids also. Definitely worth staying experience.

We (Me and my family of 3) had the opportunity of visiting Carina Beach Resort in the month of October 2021 It was a pleasure to stay at Carina Beach Resort. The scenery was excellent, and the staff was accommodating. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The resort offers the perfect mix of modern accommodations and traditional charm, coupled with incredible views from the back porch. I looked for a relaxing spot to get away from the craziness of the city, and Carina Beach Resort was exactly what I was looking for! It's peaceful, calming, and all-around perfect. The staff goes above and beyond to make sure you're comfortable and happy. And they're not just there to hang out with you - they want to help you with anything that will make your stay comfortable. After a long day at the beach, I always like to go up to their lawn and relax. It's relaxing to watch the stars come out and the sound of birds in the sky. Lot has to do with the management especially Neville and his family who have been in the industry for a long time. Their warmth and willingness to help are infectious. It is located just 1km away from Benaulim beach, which gives it a bonus. Big shout out to Anthony - manager Diksha - receptionist Franky - all-rounder Joseph - FNB Manager Javison, Justin, Jokina, Sukur, and Bahadur - support staff We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend this resort to anyone!

Despite the pandemic,the covid situation was very well handled by the staff and members at Carina Beach Resort.We had a comfortable stay. The rooms were clean and comfortable.The scenery is very pleasing.We were allowed to order food from a restaurant nearby however it is made sure the food is delivered at the entrance of the hotel no where beyond.All safety protocols were seen into.Sanitation and temperature checks at all times. Staff were kind and friendly and made the environment very comfortable. Worth the trip and money.Highly recommend.

We had visited CARINA for a month's stay and have loved the experience overall through all aspects of hospitality - - Amazing staff (Ganesh has been awesome not that others are a bit less, all in total were amazing which made you feel you are not in a resort but it was altogether homely experience) - Amazing location (all needs and beach are a stone throw distance) - The Property in total has been splendid keeping hospitality, service, rooms, staff, location, amenities and places around with not forgetting the budget. Next visit to Goa will definitely be in CARINA. The Owner not to forget is very friendly and is always on top to give you the best experience (Neville) Keep up the good work guys!!!

Stayed at Carina with family,and it was absolutely a delight. The peace and calm gives you best of the two worlds,the resort is located in a quiet place away from the noise and hustle. The moment you feel you need some action just walk to the Benaulim beach. The staff is helpful. The lawn area at night is something you must try specially if you like to watch stars at night. A must try place for holiday lovers.
