“Great Place for a Big Group or Family”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

We stayed in a 3-bedroom villa that had a living room, dining area and a well-equipped kitchenette. The kitchenette included a water-purifier, stove, dish-washer, mixer-and-grinder, all the necessary utensils, etc. This was really helpful since one of the couples in our group had a baby. If you have a big group or family, renting such a villa is the perfect accommodation to let you all stay together while providing the necessary privacy.

This place is located very close to Fort Aguada and near a street that has a lot of great eating places, supermarkets, spas, etc. Some of the most famous beaches and clubs in Goa are fairly close from here, though it'll take more than an hour by car to reach the southern beaches.

The breakfast was included as a part of our package, but was nothing great to write home about. The portions of shampoo, body-lotion, toilet-paper, etc. was miserly, lasting barely for a day and was not replenished without being separately told. The toilet didn't have a health-faucet, which is a little strange for a place in India. The sofa in the living room had cushions that slide down the moment you try to sit on them - this was _very_ irritating. The TVs were old and blurry CRT-TVs rather than LCD-TVs, which are the norm elsewhere. There is no AC in the living-room (only in the bedrooms).

Unlike other places that merely block your credit-card at the time of check-in and then charge you based on the actuals upon check-out, this place charges it upfront, which makes it difficult to make adjustments later (as was the case with us where they overcharged us due to a mis-communication).

To be fair, the staff were responsive to our needs and quite polite and helpful, If only they could iron out these issues, this will be a really great place to stay while you're in Goa with friends or family.

We went to Presidential pool villa with our friends in the month of July. It was a four bedroom villa with a private swimming pool. Needless to say it was the villa with well equipped kitchen, dinning space and all basic amenities. The space was clean and well kept and we could even sense a homely touch to the decor. Garden space outside the villa was well maintained. All efforts were done to keep the pool and villa clean. Housekeeping staff was prompt to our queries and concerns. Food was good but could have been better by adding some more healthy choices to the breakfast. One small suggestion would be if an they can arrange an open bar-be -que space, it ll add more fun to cooking. As we were couples and family friends we enjoyed cooking in the villa and made well use of kitchen.

We stayed here in 3 BHK Villa, and will recommend to anyone who plan to Visit, as it is not only a pleasant, relaxing and well price luxury but, is also a property managed very well by the helpful staff and management.

Stay was Good, Food was also very good, the Executive Chef was courteous enough to visit us and understand our taste before serving a delicious Meal.

Overall a very satisfying stay.

Our 2N3D Stay at Aguada Anchorage was a pleasant one. the 2 bedroom luxury Villa we stayed in was comfortable, clean and well equipped. The staff was fine too. The breakfast menu was mediocre and could have been better. The spread is small with very few options. The pool is almost as good as a baby pool, but not a bad option for a dip to relax. Since our visit was in the monsoon season, we did not get to enjoy the pool side bar as it was non functional ( even though it wasn't actually raining when we were there). The bathrooms near the restaurants definitely need to be looked into as there is a good scope for cleanliness there.. all in all the experience was a comfortable one!!

Dear Sir,

We are really pleased to hear from you and appreciate the time taken by you to write a review of your stay with us on Trip advisor. We are extremely happy that you had a comfortable and pleasant stay with us.

We are looking into the breakfast menu and will try to work out some more options. In regards to the pool, we have two common pools and both have a height stating from 3Ft to 5.5 Ft being the deepest end and the length is approx. around 15 meters. We regret that we could not offer you services at the pool side restaurant, as you are already aware this restaurant is shut down during the monsoons, we re-open it only at the beginning of the peak season as it requires a lot of maintenance and carpentry work including painting, fumigation, cleaning, etc. before we actually let it out to our guests. We are looking into the matter regarding the washrooms near the restaurant and we assure you better services the next time you stay with us.

Thank you once again, we are looking forward to seeing you soon.

Booked the Presidential pool villa for the Monsoons in Goa, spent a little less than a week at this absolutely stunning villa. The customer service was impeccable almost; from the very start, the numerous phone calls to Gavin was met with patience, our arrival was pleasant and relaxed, even the hosts as the reception were polite and well spoken , not to forget the ardent housekeeping standards made our stay memorable to say the least. The presidential pool villa at Aguada Anchorage is a perfect example of picturesque beauty. The furnishing, the well equipped kitchen and the cozy bedrooms made this villa inviting without the usual mechanical elements of an otherwise star hotel. Our most favorite part of the villa happened to be the swimming pool which they certainly took effort to keep clean daily, which I found to be very efficient and thoughtful. We haven't stopped raving about our stay and are already making plans of when we can visit again. i would definitely refer this villa if you are looking at a 'holiday' in the truest sense without the hustle bustle and chaos of worrying about little things because at Aguada Anchorage they look after your most little needs thus ensuring all you have to do is lose yourself in the pampering and enjoy!
Special thanks to Gavin ,the reception and the housekeeping team for their assistance and hospitality.

Our stay at the Aguada Anchorage was great!!the villa was well furnished and the amenities were excellent. We loved our private pool!The restaurant was just average,the breakfast being ordinary with not a great spread. Except for the food, everything about the resort was worth it! Waiting to go back to the villa!
