“trust me...its the worst resort in goa”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

its not only a 3 star resort but no doubt a 3rd class resort....untidy...hospitability is worst...housekeeping is terrible...food is not only of limited variety but takes away your apetite...has no good qualities....infact there were intruders at night also during our stay from 1st March 2013 for 3 nites...no entertainment programmes in the evening...no games for the kids though they boast of a playroom...blunt headed manager and receptionist who care a fig about your privacy...just cant find any other words to describe the resort...its the WORST in Calangute, Goa....STAY AWAY FROM THIS RESORT...

2012 - we loved the Terra Paraiso. 2013 - we couldn't wait to say goodbye. Bear in mind, for the second year, we are staying at this hotel for 1 month, not just a couple of days. When we arrived at 5am we had to wait until 1pm for our room after a long journey from UK despite having contacted TP 10 days before our trip to reiterate our arrival time and request an early check-in and being told it would be chargeable (of course) and if there was a problem they would let us know beforehand. We were offered no drink or blanket, just told to wait. That is simply NOT HOSPITALITY. When we decided to go and stretch our legs we were chased out of the door to sign for IR25 worth of water. NOT HOSPITALITY. Throughout our stay at TP we felt that everything was about making money. Most days it was impossible to get a sunbed by the pool because 14 sunbeds don't go very far in a 46 room hotel when outsiders are encouraged to come and use the pool for IR100 per day. The staff were all lovely and helpful, the rooms and pool clean and well looked after and the food delicious but the policy of GET THE MONEY FROM THE GUESTS was always paramount and made us feel hounded - hotel policy we guessed but we would like to feel welcome at the hotel we stay in for 4 weeks.

Room Tip: rooms close to the restaurant and particularly overlooking the lane above the emergency generators...

I selected this hotel seeing very good feedbacks in tripadvisor. Whatever I expected, it matched. The hotel room was good and clean, location is excellent because of its proximity to beach, staff was friendly, food was very tasty and resonably priced and the heart of the hotel is the beautiful swimming pool at the center of the hotel. Having dinner with live song in Wednesday evening in front of the swimming pool would always be memorable. Both me and my family enjoyed a lot staying here....

It is really a good place, homely atmosphere to stay for long time. Nice food are there in blue bistro restaurant. Room services are good. Like to visit again.
Sitting on the side of swimming pool and eating foods are great experience. Swimming pool is also very beautiful and I can say its one of the best swimming pool, I have visited ever.

Being a bunch of girls, we chose this property strictly owing to the location and a good deal we got with price.. walking distance from Calangute beach and a 10 min drive to Baga, this property was worth it all. Did not try room service but the swimming pool and its bar was pretty good. Honestly it is not worth it to eat and drink in Goa hotels when the shacks offer brilliant food and dirt cheap alcohol. Tip - pls do not book a package with Breakfast, take a 5 min walk and hit the shacks to grab some brunch.

Room Tip: Pool facing!

we stayed for 3n 4 days. the service was great and staff was quite friendly. must choose the rooms beside the pool. initially we were offered a room away from pool but it was changed the next day. outside the hotel, you may get bikes from maxi or Lakshmi. don't choose the laundry service of the hotel. go to the nearby laundry yourself. it's faster and cheaper. food inside the hotel was amazing and reasonably priced. service was slow but can be justified by the fact that everything served was fresh. the rooms are a bit dark and the quality of furniture needs improvement.

all in all it was a very pleasant experience and I might consider staying there nex time

We went there for our first anniversary and the overall experience was superb. Staff was very generous and helpful. Its a clean very well maintained property and we totally enjoyed their evening band performances throughout 5 days of our stay. No complaints about food there.
You can get 2 wheeler on request on paid basis from hotel only.
Above all, the best part is that the Calangute beach is at walking distance of hardly 4-5 minutes.
