Beleza...by the beach
Ranked #1 of 5 Hotels in Betalbatim
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 November 2013

This hotel firstly although address wise is in Betalbatim, is much closer to Colva - although it is quite out the way generally, so a bike or taxi is needed unless you like lengthy walks.
The property is divided into large villas - which can be booked as a whole or via separate rooms. I had a very smart room, good amenities and spacious. Hotel also has a good swimming pool and spa, and the restaurant is also good quality. Breakfast buffet is a bit limited compared to similar standard hotels and the hot dishes in the heated trays were normally quite cold. Made up for by super omelettes.
The Wi-Fi was not accessible in the rooms, so you had to go sit in reception area or at the restaurant to get access, which was somewhat frustrating - especially as the restaurant staff seem to resent it.
I wouldn't choose to stay here again mainly because of the location, but otherwise it was good.

We stayed at Beleza in the month of Nov 2012 for our honeymoon. It is an excellent property with large spacious bedrooms with an exquisite bathroom having a decent shower area .Rooms include quite huge cupboards and an attached large balcony facing the poolside. We enjoyed our stay very much as there was also a kind of private beach with their own beach beds(but on rent). With the hotel itself providing bath showers, bathrooms, beach towels near to the private beach, we found it very convenient to get into the beach waters. The complimentary breakfast buffet was awesome. It included both indian/western menu. However for lunch/dinner we found the restaurant menu to be bit overpriced so we had to eat outside which was usually at the joints near the Colva circle.

Only problem faced by us was the impossible price demanded by the taxis provided by the hotel. When we wanted to hire a local taxi (who asked only half the price to north Goa), we were told that they are not allowed to come near the hotel property. So finally we had to drag our luggages and walk all the way up to the main road to meet the local taxi. This was really a torture in the heat. We had come and stayed in good spirit but left with a bad taste. Be warned about this. The taxi guys at the hotel entrance always charge double as they know you wont have other options since the property is in a secluded place. Our hotel stay was otherwise very pleasant.

Room Tip: This is a great place to stay provided you have your own vehicle or if you are willing to pay unreas...

Firstly…Goa in itself is a paradise…a state unlike any other in India…people are simple and very friendly…you can walk up to any individual and they’ll reply with a smile…a unique cultural experience like none other…Green and clean roads…definitely a place worth visiting…

Secondly about the resort…best place to be for a family holiday...away from the chaos and clutter…a well maintained and looked after resort…with clean and modern rooms. Excellent customer service and each staff member more than happy to every extra mile to make you feel at home…great ambience and scenery with plenty of open green space….

Thirdly the food…Goan cuisine in itself has its own delicacy and needs to be enjoyed with the view of lovely beaches here….resort itself has a restaurant which although has limited items in the menu but the chefs have done a great job in making all of them so yummm….morning buffet breakfast is complimentary and can make a few things off menu if requested….

Last but not the least…and I guess that’s what won my heart away…the beach…a private entry to one of the cleanest and least crowded beach fronts in Southern Goa…Me and my wife had an awesome time just chilling out in the white sand with literally no one to bother…best time ever sitting under the blue sky overseeing the vast blue sea …and a breeze quiet enough to listen your partner’s whispers and cool enough to make you wear a sweater ….

I loved each and every moment of my stay in Beleza by the beach…and will surely plan a trip next year as well…Thanks Guys

The location for a family holiday was good. The food in the restaurant was good but the breakfast options and quality is not upto 4* standard. You will need transport to get around as it is out of the way. The resort is spacious with clean decent size rooms.

The pool is good size and the private beach access leads to a quiet beach.

The resort is right next to the colva beach of goa. Rooms are good and big, service levels are decent..
However, if you like late night pubbing in goa, then this is not the best place to stay. There are a few restaurants nearby but all were below average. The resort restaurant is good, however, not worth going for all ur meals.

Very poor breakfast
Basic and open air restaurant
Room facilities don't match a 4star hotel
Near the beach but far away from the center and through a very dark street at night.
Convenient Bike rental service.
No double bed available, instead, a twin single bed provided
Great swimming pool, clean.
Not really a private beach but a private path to a quiet and lifeguarded beach
Overhaul we had a good, quiet and restful stay.

The deck around it is comfortably designed for sun-bathers and well shaded for others to laze and enjoy their afternoon siesta.
