In October 2010 I had visited and stayed at this place- To our surprise- (After going through the other reviews about hotel on make my trip before leaving for Journey– we had downgraded our expectations)- but in actual it was opposite – “SIMPLY GREAT”- In other reviews we read small lanes , but they were very clean and good lanes far away from hustle-bustle of roads – the route to beach was a straight small lane, clean lane of hardly 50-60 meters – The reception staff was very very cordial – Though Pick Up was not included in my package , the hotel on my request and payment , arranged for it from airport, excellent cab – which ensured I need not search for hotel – on check in , the Reception staff told me that my original Booking was for “SUPER DELUXE” Room AND THEY ARE UPGRADING ON THEIR OWN TO “SUITE” Without any extra Payment – The environment and cleanliness inside the hotel was perfect – I stayed there for 5 days/4 nights and it was interesting to observe that whenever no one is swimming in pool – the hotel staff is constantly cleaning it –in addition to in build mechanism of water drain out which would ensure always clean water in pool – , despite rain , dust – hotel lawn et.al always remained clean - Service was perfect ,a perfect match of Complete Professionalism – “Giving complete privacy, independence , but always being there when I needed anything- Very clean rooms /toilet – all rooms facing the pool side – My son of 8 Years – Calling it the best place , though he had stayed in 5 star resorts earlier – Even Free BREAKFAST was great , with Menu changing daily and a nice blend of continental/Indian Breakfast
VALUE FOR MONEY – “I CONSIDER MY STAY WAS AS GOOD AS FREE “ , I think at any other smaller , even non tourist place in India – I would have been charged 2-3 times this cost with even lesser facilities and environment – I feel the amount given by me for this hotel and facilities was less – “MOREOVER EVEN THE MINI BAR PRICE WAS NORMAL PRICE OF MARKET , NOTHING EXTRA “ , RESTAURANT MENU PRICES WERE ALSO ON NORMAL SIDE
BEST THING – I covered entire GOA (Minus South) , all tourist places, all beaches - in just 3 days and in total Unbelievable Rs 1200/- only – THANKS To “ACTIVA” SCOOTER PROVIDED BY HOTEL STAFF At just Rs 200/- per day (petrol extra)- Had it not been due to this self conveyance of “ACTIVA” , my experience would have not so great of GOA – Infact this thing , along with the Hotel made my trip to GOA –“A MEMORABLE EXPERIENCE’ To cherish for Life Time
IMPROVEMENT AREAS – The timing of POOL /GYM/SPA /INDOOR GAMES IS 9 A.M TO 6 P.M - Very Inconvenient , I /My wife/Son could not use anything , Between 10 to 11 A.M we used to leave for all places and by the time we came back after 7 P.M , everything closed – At other places in India I find SPA/GYM services start very early morning- even otherwise , gym is used early morning , indoor games for children are in the evening
WARNING- There has to be something very bad also , Hence this Warning – “AVOID GIVING LAUNDRY” – The cleaning is so harsh , that clothes given for washing have been spoilt – From Clothes , Shirt/Pant , Good Branded , which never give out colour, it seems the colour has been extracted out and clothes made very rough

Resort Terra Paraiso is quite a new place in goa near calungute beach in north goa. i was there via a online website and for the moneys it was offered , the place was a killer deal. Almost 3/4 star like ambience and luxuries. The rooms are extremely spacious and nicely done. The pool is huge and even the beach is walkable. The resort has a poolside restaurant which food is not very good but decent for some meals. There are many better palces to eat other places.
I think this place is the cheapest in prime places like calungute and bagha. The service and staff is pretty good too. Quite a place to stay!

We went to Goa to Enjoy our Holidays, and were there at this resort to celebrate our 1st anniversary. we had booked deluxe room, but if you want pool side view then you need to go for Super-deluxe as the resort is designed in such a way that only super-deluxe rooms are facing towards pool.The Rooms were very Clean,I was told that Deluxe rooms are equally good and actually they are really good, and that we realized when we saw our rooms, very neat and clean. The beauty of this Hotel is its Swimming pool, and its Food. We swam in the morning,the water is very clean. The Beach is very near to the Hotel better than the man Calangute Beach which is filled with litter and people. The food i.e Breakfast was good & healthy.This hotel has a Health Club & SPA and we spent some time in playing TT, and Table Soccer. We also tried one of the SPA package although it was recently opened but was very relaxing. This is one of the memorable trip in our life.

We went to Goa to Enjoy our Holidays, and were there at this resort from 6th Oct 2011 to 9 Oct 2011, we had booked two rooms, Deluxe Rooms.

Before going, i had read all the Reviews of this Hotel "Terra Paraiso", which ever-ever available on the net (good and Bad).

We reached in time, the Hotel Cab Picked up from the Airport as soon we reached the airport without waiting, the person was standing with our name on the board.

The Hotel staff served us a Welcome Drink (Cold Drink), we did not expected it.

The rooms were allotted to us immediately. The reception staff was polite and reasonably fast.

The Rooms were very Clean, we had booked Deluxe rooms and (after reading the reviews i wanted to shift to Super-Deluxe rooms), I was told that Deluxe rooms are equally good and actually they are really good, and that we realized when we saw our rooms, very neat and clean.

The beauty of this Hotel is its Swimming pool, and its Food. We swam in the morning till and late at night, the water is very clean, they also serve drinks (i do not mean cold drinks) in the pool, by the way who takes cold drinks in pool.

The Beach is very near to the Hotel (exactly 320 steps from the gate of the hotel) and it is upto you how fast you reach there, it took me 4 minutes. The beach near the hotel is very neat and clean, better than the man Calangute Beach which is filled with litter and people.

The food i.e Breakfast and Dinner served to us was beyond words, after taking the breakfast we used to wait for Dinner time and then again for breakfast.

I would like to thank "Ganesh-Manager Restaurant" and the girl at reception (Sorry i forgot her name) they were very co-operative.

This hotel has a Health Club and we spent 3 hours in total, and played TT, and Table Soccer, there was a brand new jogger.

Few Tips:

If you are comming to this Hotel, bring your Swim suit as they some times do not allow you to swim if you are not having the swim-ware.
You should has lots of Shorts / Nikkers (what we call it in Hindi) and tea-shirts as they get wet very offen, due to frequent visits to the beaches.
Visit Mapsa for your purchase of Kajus and Feni, they are the cheapest.
The local bus service is fast and cheap here.

This Trip was Best till date in my Life.

Let me assure you, that it is not paid Review, i have written what i have seen.

Room Tip: Do not spend extra money on Super-Deluxe rooms, Deluxe Rooms are equally good.

Hi All

We stayed in the resort for 3 nights and 4 days, its cosy and calm as a resort however rooms and food are not tempting at all. Normal rooms are pathetic and buffet food is also very monotnous. We were offered a higher category room at some extra price which still made some sense. Go only if you want to save some money
