Beleza...by the beach
Ranked #2 of 5 Hotels in Betalbatim
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 14 April 2014

This was our first trip to South Goa (we normally stay in North Goa) and staying at this hotel made it a fantastic experience! The hotel property is quite large with a sizable pool, a big lawn, and a nice kiddie play area (a great option for us with a pre-schooler to entertain). The rooms are part of a single bungalow unit with a common living area but are very private nevertheless. The furnishings and bathrooms are nice and functional. The gardens are gorgeous with many varieties of flowering and fruit trees. The best part was the private access to the beach … to be able to get up and walk down to the beach was amazing! The hotel provides beach towels and there are shacks a little distance away on either side giving us the options.

The breakfast was quite good with lots of options and the wait-staff was very polite and attentive. We absolutely loved the fact that everything was made fresh (for e.g. boiled eggs were boiled on order rather than sitting pre-boiled). We didn't much care for the a la carte menu because there are much better value-for-money options in Colva (about 2 kms away). We rented a scooter for Rs.350 a day and rode back and forth.

Overall, we had an excellent and very relaxing vacation … just what the doctor ordered! I would definitely go back and stay there on my next visit to South Goa.

We went here as a group of three couples and had rented a bungalow. Each bungalow has three rooms so the unit was totally to ourselves. The rooms were excellent and very spacious with balcony as well. The restaurant and room service was good. The hotel has direct access to the beach. The beach was very clean and the approach very well made however given that it was south goa dont expect shacks on the beach. Overall an excellent experience!

This is an example of how hotels could set the standard in Goa. There are just a few areas that they need to improve upon.
Good points :-
- Location - Just far enough away from the beaten track to be exclusive in a quiet,idyllic setting.
- Rooms & hotel - high standard of furnishings and designs that demonstrate a quality usually found in European hotels
- pool - lovely clean, large pool

Poor points :-
- Wifi - A poor system that involves a complicated issue of passwords that requires login everytime. Even though we were the closest room to reception we still couldn't get a signal. Why the password system? who is going to steal it down there?? If a beach shack can get it right, why can a big hotel not do the same?
- Beach - trooped down to the beach on the first day, handed towels to an empty beach. Only four decrepit sunbeds you wouldn't put your dog on. The only option is a 1000 yard trudge to a beach shack either left or right. This is supposed to be Beleza by the beach??? Spend some money and put your own shack up!
Overall we enjoyed it. Just a 100 rupee ride up to Colva if you want a bit of life. If you just want to chill by the pool and take your head off for a few days this is a perfect hotel for that.

Room Tip: Room D3 worked for us. Lovely room overlooking the pool

The hotel is unusual in that its set out more like a large villa with rooms and also lounge seating areas. We loved the layout.sitting on our balcony overlooking the beautiful gardens and palms was like being in a lodge in africa it had the same feel.if you like gardens you will love this hotel. The hotel is 2 mins walk from the beach and the hotel pool was good and warm. In my view the hotel is ideal for a quiet holiday age group probably 50 plus. Its about 20 mins walk down the beach to the nearest town but there are lots of cafe bars on the beach really near the hotel.. we loved it

This was our second stay in the hotel. Quality of rooms have been still top class, which means, hotel is maintaining it very well. Last time when we stayed hotel was relatively new and there was some doubt if hotel will maintain well in long run or not. We were positively surprised to see same quality rooms.

In fact, in overall quality, hotel has improved and its restaurant has become much better. We were actually disappointed during our last stay but this time, we felt taste of food was much much better. Menu is not very elaborate but its good and reasonably priced. Live counter chef during breakfast needs to learn smiling. He is in service industry and most of the time we felt, he is too stiff in his body language.

Their beach shak Nazare is good but we would have preferred some beach loungers with umbrellas on the beach. Nazare is at the end of the property and since its at little lower in height with respect to the beach, you don't get a clear view of the beach. It would be really good if they raise Nazare's floor by few feet like a next door restaurant Micky's has done.

Overall, this place is a great value for money. Don't think value for money as cheap - its extremely comfortable and not costly at all. Great place on the excellent beach.

Room Tip: Swimming pool facing rooms are good.

I was unfortunate to have only 1 night stay at this resort. A very well spread resort with almost all the required facilities/ amenities for a holiday resort.
The place is in south Goa near Colva beach; so if you like crowded place and all water sports; this isnt a good spot; but if you like to relax and spend time with your family in a quite and rejuvenating environment; you will really like this place.
The Kid's area is advertised; however isnt upto the standards though.
The small relaxing place and restaurant just besides the beach is an icing on the cake; really loved it.

I am writing this review while I am still in the hotel. I'm leaving in the morning today (although I don't want to) and I must say , the hotel had me the very moment I entered the compound. Right from the approach road, the reception , the room ( incredibly and surprisingly spacious ) , pool and the best bit the beach with its white sand. A must for anyone looking at a south goa place to crash at with everything a near 5/5. Kudos.

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