Last year was my first trip to Goa, I spent a fantastic week in the South staying at the Fort Aguada. The room was small and cramped but kept spotlessly clean, the bathroom was also on the small side and through the window was a patch of grass. it is the most beautiful resort in goa. You can sit outside... More

I've stayed at a couple of hotels in Goa and this was by far the best, however a bit pricier than other options in the area. If you're looking for a place with a bit more luxury than the typical hotels 3 star resorts, this is the one for you. The ocean views from our room were stunning and we... More

Hotel booking was quite easy online. No upfront payment, I settled all the payments while check out. They keep the credit card details upfront while booking so that they can charge if there are cancellations / amendments. Hotel had a airport pick up and drop facility. Buses ply in regular intervals. The bus was not at all up to the... More

Vivanta by Taj is an amazing place to stay. It offers not only scenic beauty but also very beautiful natural surrounding. One is really motivated to get up in the morning to take a walk. The sit outs offers a nice view. Very-very friendly staff. They have some wonderful, planned activities planned for kids every day. The swimming pool is... More

First of all the good things. It is a beautiful property with great views. Access to beach is also very convenient. Rooms are also neat, clean and spacious. Taj Village hotel is also very near and you can use their facilities too. However, instead of getting double facilities, you realize that this hotel is incomplete and is dependent on Taj... More

The Taj used to be excellent but after downgrading to the Vivanta I think they have intentionally lowered the standards of accommodation and service. We had 3 villas (1 renovated and 2 non-renovated) and the non-renovated ones were just shabby, which is inexcusable. The bathtubs were dirty, the faucets in the loo had plaster stuck all over the them, the... More

The property is just amazing, the view towards the sea is more amazing. A little walk from the hotel would take you to a end of the fort from where you can enjoy the beautiful sunsets, every evening. The food is much more amazing. And the one thing which is most amazing than anything else is the immaculate service they... More
