Joseph on the front desk is extremely helpful, the place is well run while maintaining a relaxed atmosphere. The beach hut is a delight and the beach provides good swimming and for early risers a chance to see the fishing boats unload. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay

We stayed in the Beleza from December 14th until December 24th.
We were welcomed by the very friendly reception staff who gave us an upstairs room with balcony, as requested.

This is a rather new hotel with houses with 3 rooms each. One downstairs with a terrace and 2 upstairs; one with a balcony, the other one bigger but without a balcony.We enjoyed our room very much. The room was large and the bathroom beautiful with a walk-in shower. We were impressed. Also the balcony was large and good.
On the balcony we had wifi. In the rooms we sometimes had wifi. Our room was not close to the reception area at all, more close to the restaurant so there is not only wifi in the reception area as some people mentioned on tripadvisor.

Housekeeping does a real good job.
We had our clothes washed several times and they came back quickly and very well ironed.

The swimmingpool is very nice; very clean. Sometimes they forgot to add new towels, that was a pity.

Breakfast was good but sometimes there were not enough empty tables so you had to share a table with other guests.
When it got a bit more busy refill of the buffet could be better.
We didn´t have dinner in the restaurant because we prefered to have dinner at the beach but we used to have a couple of drinks there every night. 2 Times a week there is a singer performing in the restaurant which was very nice. The other nights though, when there was no performance there was a bit lack of atmosphere.

Location of the Beleza is wonderful. Only a short stroll to the beach and the path to the beach is well kept and lit. Beach towels are provided by the hotel which is a really good service.

All together we enjoyed our stay in the Beleza very much. I wouldn´t hesitate to return the next time we will visit this area.

At the end of our 1st visit at the Beleza by the beach in October we knew that we would come again to Goa and specifically to this hotel. The rooms are arranged around a central lounge and kitchen to give the feeling that we are not confined to the room. Not that we minded staying in the room itself. It is large, spacious, nicely decorated, with a beautiful view on a patio and a garden. If you choose to spend the day around the swimming pool, you will be pampered with drinks, snacks. The massage is a relaxing experience followed by a thorough cleansing in the steam room. If you prefer the beach you will enjoy the bar and the deck chairs after a refreshing swim in the water. The staff makes you feel at home, attentive to any of your needs. We did come back again in January and we were received with such a warm and friendly fashion that the magic worked again. We departed with an " au revoir, auf wiedersehen, see you again".

Room Tip: Rooms on the patio are open to the garden. Rooms on the 1st floor have a private balcony. Both are g...

I was bit appehensive to book this place but I am glad that I did. This place is definitely worth a stay. Check in was non-eventful except that the AC in the room was not working and they took 1 hour to fix it. Bit dissapointed that we did not get room with the pool view inspite of booking 4 months in advance. The room which we got was spacious and clean. Bathroom was good for the class and supplies were of very good quality. The villa where we were staying had a open kitchen, a sitting area and a balcony. Property was well maintained and quite big. Overall the staff were well behaved and helpful. Swimming pool in the villa was quite big and absolutely clean. Food was reasonably priced. This place is just 30 meters walking distance from the beach which is more or less clean and quite peaceful. They have private road to beach which is huge advantage.

Now the negatives. a) The only place which we found dirty was children play area (full of stones). I was afraid to leave my 30 months old in the area as he could have easily got hurt. b) During checkin I was made to sign a agreement which mentioned (among other items) that outside food was not allowed. The problem with this was that we agree to this but please give us sufficient variety of food to feed on. They have limited menu and on the second day lunch, we were told “no tanddori items available” which reduced their menu by further 50%. They dont have much choice for my toddler either. Whatever they served was no doubt of good quality. c) Their buffet breakfast menu had limited choice too, the bigger issue here was both days there was period of atleast 10 minutes were all of the major items were finished and were waiting to replenished.

Barring the negatives, we liked this place and if opportunity comes we will visit again.

Room Tip: Choose poolside.

Dear AnandBaid

Thank you for taking out the time to share your review on your stay with us at Beleza.
Your feedback on our resort facilities and services is valuable to us and we will certainly take action on clearing up the stones from the play area. We agree that it can be dangerous for children.

Your feedback on the limited food menu is also duly noted and we have introduced a list of daily specials in addition to the food menu. We light our tandoor on most days during the evening and this has been a conscious decision as we noticed that 90% of the times our guests ordered tandoori items in the evening. But we will certainly get more options in place to provide more options for guests. Our chefs are happy to make special items on request for toddlers. We will be more pro-active in letting our guests with children know about this provision. We are also putting a system in place to be faster in replenishing the buffet items during breakfast time.

We hope you visit us again soon and notice improvements further to your feedback.

Thanks and best regards,

Beleza...by the beach, Goa.

We have unexpected to change our schedule in another place to beleza at the beach and were very happy we did this. a nice place to be with friendly personel. rooms were top and the restaurant and swimmingpool are perfect to stay. keep in mind that Beleza is not in the center but out of Colva Beach but we didn't mind at all. the beacht is close by but it was pitty that the shack of the Beleza has no sunbeds on the beach just behind the acces to the beach. if you need to go to Colva Beach note that this will be a halfour walking or use a scooter/taxi. furthermore we had great time here!

We stayed here for two nights and were blown away. The grounds are massive and beautiful. Very well maintained. The pools were a delight . Food was not bad at all - there was a good spread at breakfast . Even with the hotel having nearly 100% occupancy rate our stay was very personal, which shows the true nature of any hotel at these times.

Staff all very friendly and a big thank to Nelson who were always making sure we were happy and had everything we needed. Plan to go back ASAP if work permits, if not definitely next winter holiday

As i begin to think of what i could write about this place I seem to get lost in the amazing memories at this beautiful Resort/Hotel.... My first trip to Goa and my word I couldn't have chosen a better place....Right from the entrance to the very corner of this resort was absolutely fabulous....to say the least....set near the famous Colva Beach this resort is a gem of a resort...its entrance is surrounded by a lake with small lilies and the drive way leads up to a small lawn and the reception area where a couple of very helpful staff awaits your entry, all with smiles....We stayed here in end - August...the check in was smooth and we were shifted to our villa where we were accommodated in a very nice cozy room....i didn't get the chance to see the other rooms but i was very happy and satisfied with the room i got....a small fridge with some consumables....a digital TV......a huge spacious bathroom which was very neatly designed....the room was large and un-cramped....large wardrobe.....all in all a perfect room setting....the pool was clear...the dining area superb and a great chef who whipped almost anything and just the way we wanted....the beach is hardly about 20 meters away and a pathway leads up to it from the resort..which was rather clean and the best part was that it was a private beach and not many people on it....so we had our own quiet time lazying with a worry in the world...the weather was fantastic...not very hot and not cold and the best part was that it didn't rain...but then don't go by me....cuz i think we got lucky))))

Let me tell you, this hotel made our Goa trip spectacular....we did go out on our own on a bike and looked at other resorts and did find many interesting ones....but for the price we paid....I think we definitely got more than our moneys worth...we also used the spa services....limited but then we didn't go to Goa for the SPA....at the end of our trip our bill was calculated....they even counted the discount on F&B we were supposed to have got.

Wow....Thank you Beleza by the Beach....for this truly amazing Resort experience....I would love to visit this place again and again but then Goa is still so much to be explored and might still try something else but I would definitely recommend this resort to anyone i know without a shadow of a doubt!
