“Good Experience!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2012

It was my first visit to Goa on 14th October 2012. Overall this resort is value for money, you can enjoy good service, nice/peaceful place which is next to beach. If you want to go around just hire a bike or car. I would definitely recommend this hotel and will stay once again when visit Goa. Thanks!

Travelling from Middle East, this is a great destination with short flight of 3.5 hours from Qatar direct. The resort is extremely well designed and peaceful. The separate cottages very picturesque and situated with privacy. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly and the restaurants excellent quality food. Particularly loved the Banyan Tree restaurant! Just outside of the resort is the main road in Candolim, so you can enjoy a stroll around the various shops and also there are a couple of good and very cheap, restaurants along this road.

The only criticism would be the standard of the rooms, which I wouldn't say are 5 star - although they are comfortable enough

We were so impressed we stayed a couple of extra days!

Room Tip: All rooms are well situated, some cottages on the level, but nice to be higher up with a balcony

I have been returning to this magnificent place again and again over the years. The private villas, the green peaceful surroundings, the beautifully kept golf course, which no-one in their right mind would dare walk on. The warm and welcoming staff, not only do they care about the guests but about each other too, which says a lot about team work and team spirit. Chef Rego in The Village is amazing . Chef Tilender. K.Pun at Morisco in The Fort Aguada is a superb chef who offers exquisite fusion dishes and talks about his food with passion. Gordon Ramsey has obviuosly missed out on this one so far. Keep this hotel in mind. Perfect weather from mid September to April. The Taj Village offers private villas and in the same resort The Fort Aguada has hotel rooms .

Room Tip: can choose a garden or sea view, but the sea is always in site as soon as you step outside of your r...

The location is great, convenient for travel to, to get the feel of Goa, not too far from the airport, a 45 minute coach ride, inside the hotel the area is green and peaceful.

The staff are more than hospitable, in fact like family. The food is good, and other services excellent.

The rooms are very comfortable, and decently spacious, depending on the type of room you book.

I'm American, of Indian descent. I have to say, that after traveling all over India, including the beautiful region of Leh where hotels are no higher than 3 star, that this Taj property is close to a 3 star and no higher. The grounds are beautiful, and the views of the ocean from the hotel restaurant are phenomenal. However, beware all of the local Indian tourists- they travel in packs with each family having an average of 3-4 very loud, obnoxious and poorly disciplined children. The rooms are sparsely furnished, the air vent has an open duct leading into the main construction center of the building. Our "garden view" cottage is not as pictured on the website. I would not stay here again. Also the location is not central to town or shopping. Would have done better in Panjolim area. If you do decide to stay here- the one positive is the Stone Garden restaurant, walking distance from the hotel. The gym facility is the worst one I've seen so far on my travels around India. The "king bed" is actually two twins pushed together, making for an uncomfortable night's sleep.
