Nice big rooms and looks the part but our biggest issue is with customer care at the pool and beach.Round the pool there are about 14 sunbeds,7 out in the sun and 7 under shaded trees.The beds themselves are soiled and not a pretty site.There are no umbrellas for shade on the 7 poolside beds.Beside the beach facing bar there were 5 working and 1 broken sunbed during our stay.There is shade available for the morning until the sun moves round.Most guests go to the Russian fronted shacks about 150m away where there are umbrellas.For the price of this hotel there should be better sun protection for clients,and perhaps then guests would stay and not take their custom elsewhere as we did.
Location wise is good,with brilliant Mickeys restaurant 50m from the front gates,very pro English owner,mainly English and local Goans.Martins Corner a short taxi away also worth a visit.

Dear ROSS3076

Thank you for taking out the time to share your feedback with us. Your observation about the pool side service of sunbeds and at the beach shack is noted. We will take action to get to a solution to the sun protection issue for our guests in the future.

Hope we get a chance to have you stay with us again as our guests - we will certainly provide sun shade to you as per your requirement.

Thanks and best regards

I purely followed tripadvisor.in before I booked this place in April. I haven't seen such a huge room anywhere I have holidayed in India and this is, by far the best I have seen and stayed in. Great service and a quick 5 minute walk to the white sands beach through the private property path. The breakfast is great and adjoins the swimming pool which is maintained very well too. If you want to travel to the list of beaches on your manifest, then this is not the place. However if you are the type of visiting a beach or two and relaxing rest of the time in the hotel, this is the place to be. The Colva beach is a 10 minute walk and you should check out Mickey's restaurant which is 2 minutes walk from this place. They serve great food and is worth the visit. I booked it for very less and this restaurant has all to offer for very very less price.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in first floor, that is close to the pool. The rooms are so so big and you would love...

Beleza…by the beach is a gem in Goa’s crown. A beautiful villa nestled amongst well-tended gardens and situated about 1 minute from the beach. We arrived in India early morning and the staff ensured our room was ready as soon as was possible and offered us breakfast. We opted to explore instead and were delighted to discover the beach so close, after a walk we wandered back up the path not expecting our room to be ready and it was.
The restaurant food was gorgeous, beautifully cooked and breakfast is great, superbly cooked and presented. The restaurant and beach bar is manned by attentive staff, always friendly and always with a smile for us.
I read a bit about the wifi before we left and I’m happy to report that a new system has been installed and the signal is great, particularly in reception.
The hotel has 2 friendly (but hungry) resident cats, we recommend you throw the odd snack to; makes a difference from the ants and insects they seem to eat. The little white one got to know us and would wait for us each morning, we were sad to say bye to her.
We would absolutely recommend this hotel, it is excellent in every way and you will enjoy your experience.
Here’s a bit of info if you are travelling to Goa for the first time:
- Taxi from the airport should cost about 700 / 800rp.
- Taxi’s to anywhere else can be booked at the hotel at the main gate and are very reliable.
- Push bikes are available nearby. Come out of the hotel on the beach exit and walk right, there’s a road to the back of the first beach huts leading to the bridge. Just over the bridge is a very nice man renting bikes and mopeds. We cycled up the beach to Martins Corner (turn left with the ocean in front of you), took about 20 mins (with a short stop in Colva). The food is great.
- Most of the sunbeds along the beach (in the shacks) are free providing you purchase drinks / snacks from them.

Room Tip: We followed the advice on here and asked for a pool facing room. It was beautiful.

Very nice property. Peaceful and clean. Staff is really good. Just one minute walk to beach. Rooms, bathrooms are beautifully designed. Pool is well maintained.Perfect place to have a peaceful relaxed vacation in South Goa. Would like to visit again.
On the other side if you are planning to visit famous spots in north Goa it is going to be a long drive.

Our recent stay at this hotel did not start very well as our flight was delayed and on leaving the airport, we found no car waiting for us. Having booked through Agoda, together with our flight details we were under the impression that the airport transfers were included. But be warned they are NOT.

On the plus side, this is a small hotel that is well maintained. The staff are all polite and always have a smile on their faces. I was very impressed with the pool and the cleanliness overall and loved the fact that despite the hotel being fully booked, the pool area was never crowded.

The gym is very small and a little crowded with equipment but definitely has the basics.

The restaurant is in the open and that is a nice touch. Whilst the breakfast is more than adequate, however, the a la carte was a little disappointing. But, there are shacks on the beach that serve decent food and the beach is beautiful.

Overall, a wonderful hotel that I would definitely stay at again, both with family or friends. Just wish that they provided airport transfers, especially as I was traveling with my mother on this occasion.

Wifi is really only properly available in the reception area.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the pool have balconies.

We are glad that the initial mis-understanding got resolved once you reached the resort. It would be great if you could e-mail or call the hotel directly in case you require a pick-up next time. We would be more than happy to provide that on prior notice.

We are delighted to note that you were overall happy with your stay and would choose us again soon.
