“A really nice place by Colva beach”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

I shacked up with the family at Beleza over a 4 day weekend and would strongly recommend it as one of the best lodgings close to Colva beach. As described here on Tripadvisor and elsewhere, the resort is a series of 2-storied, 3-bedroom cottages with 2 bedrooms on the top floor and 1 bedroom on the ground floor with the rest of the space going towards a common sitting area with nice sofas , an open-plan kitchen and a common area with a fridge. The rooms are well appointed with air conditioning and has amenities that are of at least 3 star standard. The resort is staffed by professional and extremely friendly locals (is there any other kind in Goa?). There is a path that leads directly from the resort to the beach which is hardly 100 mtrs away. Although the beach is close, you don't really get a view of the sea by virtue of the resort's layout. But you can hear the waves if you step out on to your room's balcony. The breakfast service that comes along with the room is served in the resort's open restaurant by the pool and has a choice of continental as well as Indian cuisines.

I would strongly recommend the resort for anybody who plans to focus on South Goa with Colva as the base. The one thing I would like to highlight is that - the resort is slightly removed from the main Colva centre (at least a km or two). So, you cannot walk out of the resort and flag down public transportation to get around . But as everywhere else in Goa - you can rent cars (chauffeur/self driven) or motor bikes aplenty. All you need to do is put in a word at the reception and the will arrange it for you.

We stayed at Beleza from June 21-24 .. Family of 9 adults and a toddler, whose 2nd birthday we were there to celebrate.
Hotel pickup was waiting for us on arrival (we arrived by different flights) at the airport and its a 30min drive to the property.
We had rooms in adjacent villas C and D. Villa C has a lovely view of the pool and is closest to it and their restaurant. The rooms are very spacious and with 4 star fittings. The common seating areas in the villa are great to spend time together in a big group, with ample space for dancing too if in the mood. We had carried portable speakers and enjoyed the evenings indoors while it rained outside. The round dining table is very convenient for dining in (we preferred dinner in the a/c villa since it was too humid in the openair restaurant).
The large kitchen area with fridge and microwave was useful to heat milk/ food for my daughter.

There is a nice playarea with slides for kids at one end of the property, and on the other side a walkway to the beach. The shack was closed due to the monsoons and the beach was cluttered with broken shells so we couldn't spend time at this beach, but drove 5 mins to the Colva beach.
The main Colva beach is far to walk daily but the hotel arranged for scooty/cars at short notice and we had no trouble moving around.

The swimming pool is nice and clean with a good sized kiddie pool where my daughter spent each morning. The breakfast is served just 10 feet away, so its tempting to have a bite-take a plunge-and have a bite again! Breakfast spread was satisfying.
For lunch, Mickeys restaurant is a 3 min walk away.. serving yummy food if you want a change from the hotel food. The famous Martins is just 10-12mins by car.

All the staff is friendly and helpful, and Mr. Nelson surprised us with a cake to complete the weekend of birthday celebrations.

In terms of value for money, its excellent.
All in all, the full family enjoyed their stay here and we would definitely plan to return to Beleza soon. The birthday girl, all of 2yrs old, summed it up best by calling it 'new home'.

I visited thus property with around 40 other colleagues late June. We rented out 5 of the 10 villas at the property. Each villa has 3 rooms-one on the ground floor and two on the first floor. Each room can be rented separately as well. The villa has a huge balcony on each floor and a big common area. the ground floor has a big kitchen that one could use. Families with kids will find this very useful. The is quite a big play area for kids. This being off season, the rooms were very economical.

The swimming pool and the pool side restaurant is simply great. The restaurant serves continental, Indian and local Goan fare.

The Colva beach is accessible through a private walk way. The servers and the employees are a quite courteous.

Overall, a great experience. I will be back soon to this property.

We stayed in the hotel from 24th to 28th June and I must say it was a great and comfortable stay. It is slightly away from the city centre which means walking or taking auto to reach hotel. The hotel is made up of several villas and each villa has four rooms with lounge in the first and second floor. It is closer to the Colva beach (10 min walk from the hotel along the sea beach). Each floor has two rooms, one kitchen with water purifier and a lounge with sofa, dining table etc. The rooms are massive and airy. Most of the rooms have a balcony too. There is a play area in the garden which is great as it kept the children busy when we were in the hotel. Although it is monsoon season but that does not deter the mood of the tourist. The hotel was fairly empty during the week but from Thursday onwards it seemed to be fully booked. So book in advance if you are planning a trip during weekend. The hotel restaurant is slightly priced on the higher side however I found that most restaurants in Goa are overly priced so no complaints. At least the food was good in the restaurants. The swimming pool was very nice and clean so do carry your swimming costume along.

Room Tip: We stayed in A2

Spent a week at this resort- totally loved it. Lets get down to details
Location: Apprx 2.5 kms from the nearest Colva market. You can hire motor bikes.bikes from Colva market and move around. Taxis are available, but like other places in Goa- are very expensive. There is a lot of nature and greenery around. The place is reasonably quite.

Nearness to beach: One can walk from resort to beach which is apprx 300 m away. The walk is a private area and one need to worry about safety or outsiders etc. Just before the beach there is small shack owned by the hotel, wherein shower/towels are available!. There is a nice small bar attached. One can relax with a beer here while your family/kids can have fun at the beach.

Rooms: The resort is a villa style layout. With 2 rooms in 1st floor and one room at the ground floor. On the both the floors there is a air conditioned drawing room kind of space with sofas etc. We used this space to sit and have fun playing games with kids.
Rooms are fairly large and modern with arrangements for making your own tea. Bathrooms are big sized. Bath towel quality and room linen is good. Toiletries are not great but OK.
You cant get so much of space for your family. One 1st floor, one one room has a balcony. Balcony has a small lovely sitting area.
Pool: Pool is good and well maintained. Surprisingly, the pool timings are 6 am to 8 pm! what a pity. Restaurant is next to pool and one can easily yell and get beer delivered to you in the pool.
Restaurant: Breakfast is OK but one can do with more options. Foods quality generally is good.
SPA: Well attitude of staff is very poor. Not worth it. Avoid at all costs
Service: Service depends on the people!. Some time they will surprise you with quality/speed while at other times you need to wait. Well this is true with most of the goa resorts I have been to.
Kids: Apart from a lovely garden, pool. They also have a Table tennis, carom board room.
Health: A very small functional gym exists.
Servants: There is a small servants room with toilet in all villas for drivers/servants! This room is located on terrace and hence your servant is in easy reach at all times

Overall : Guys, if you have small kids and are traveling with family go for it. You will love it

Room Tip: Look for rooms pool facing rooms on 1st floor on E or F villa.

Spent five days here with my wife. Had an awesome experience right from check-in. The staff were very friendly, helpful and polite and always greets you with a smile. The rooms and other amenities are well maintained and clean.
It's wonderful to laze in your balcony listen to the lapping (or roaring at times) of the sea. The beach is very much close to the resort. It's clean and well maintained, mostly like a private beach.
The restaurant is wonderful and is right next to the pool. It feels real good to take a dip in the pool and eat your heart out at the restaurant.
The one thing that we felt sore was the spa. The staff there were very rude and the massage did not feel good too.

Room Tip: Rooms A2 and A3 are the best bet..

It is conveniently located close to the Colva Promenade (shopping area) as well as a distance covered in 25 minutes from the airport.

Guests can choose from a wide selection of movies from our video library free of charge. Tentacao – our world-cuisine restaurant, is an all-day dining restaurant and bar set by the pool side. Nazare – our beach shack and bar, is a beautiful spot to view the sunset and sip sun downers and light snacks. The swimming pool at Beleza is of a good size for serious swimmers, with a section carved out for children. The deck around it is comfortably designed for sun-bathers and well shaded for others to laze and enjoy their afternoon siesta. Espaco Divino – Our Spa facility – offers a range of relaxing massages and steam room service. The Gym is equipped with quality equipment for those fitness freaks who would like to visit.
