We booked this excellent and friendly hotel for an company offsite and it was a complete value for money spent.

Right from the checkin till check out it was a very very friendly and pleasant experience.

The amenities and facilities are fantastic and the special stalls/events organised by the management adds to the value one gets, For example the stall where you can get your loved ones name engraved on a rice grain and gift it as a locket or a key chain..... not new but fantastic and neat stuff, the movie shows organised, the theme based events for children etc

The rooms are brilliant with fantastic view of the sea and the added balcony along with the spa chairs adds the cherry on the cake... :-)

The staff right from the reception to restaurants to room service are exceptionally good (I think it is the result of time and money invested by Taj in grooming and training)

The food is excellent and the variety one gets right from breakfast to dinner is amazing, my mouth waters everytime I think of the Mutton Biryani and Vidaloo I ate there...... amazing.

If you want the best rooms ask for the independent villas facing the sea and you must visit the restaurant in the village by the sea in the evening for a beautiful romantic and relaxing time.... :-)

The only thing I thought they could have done better is with the swimming pool timings

I can go on and on about this place but guess one needs to be there to ecperience much more than what I could describe in the above words.

I am planning soon to go there again with my wife and my 3 years old daughter... :-)

Cheers

I believe there exists no better explanation to how much I like this place than to confirm that I have already planned another stay at this marvelous resort in July 2011.

The best time to visit as per my experience is the rainy season itself or just after that as it leaves you with such fantastic memories that you can cherish for ever.

The service is gr8. Cab to take you to any of the facilities is just a phone call away and reports in less than 5 minutes. This is what I experienced on all the 5 days of my stay there.

The rooms are magestic with high level of cleanliness everywhere across the two properties.

We stayed at the Aguada couple of years back & always remember that as one of our best stays - in India & abroad. The USP was the staff - friendly, genuinely caring, going out of the way..........
This time we stayed with our baby daughter in the Superior Sea View room. The view is stupendous & the room was real good.
They have comfy beds just near the pool to relax which is great.
The breakfast menu makes go 'there goes my diet'!
It still represents all that a Taj hotel should be - just the service, the personal touch, the warmth (which is synonymous with the Taj group) wasnt there!
I am still disappointed........as now it's just one more good hotel......

The hotel serves as backdrop to the imposing Fort of Aguada on the Sinquerim beach. We stayed there mid November of 2010.

The room: We stayed in a Superior Charm Sea View Room with Sit Outs overlooking the sea located on the ground floor. The room had a DVD player, television, mini bar, 2 line phones, wireless internet & a well stocked mini bar. Its needless to say that we loved the room. The bathroom was average sized & stocked with ayurvedic bath amenities from an Indian ayurveda brand thats well known for its natural products. The rooms in the hotel are better located than its nearby sister property (Holiday Village) as they are well positioned along the cliff.

Guests get the added treat of the facilities of its sister property too. Guests are chauffeured between the two hotels free of charge.

F&B: With some of the best culinary delights of Goa in its various speciality restaurants & the superb cocktails in arguably one of the best sea facing bars (SFX) in Goa, the F&B does not fail to disappoint. The breakfasts were sumptuous & best eaten on the Sit Out overlooking the sea.

The Spa: The aromatherapy couple session at the Jiva spa was divine. To the accompaniment of soul soothing music & the aromatic oils, the well experienced hands made us drift into slumber midway through the session. The fact that the Spa was fully booked & the gentle & friendly staff speaks volumes on how well run it is. The aromatic oil for relaxation was very good & I ended up buying a few bottles. The spa was the most memorable part of the Fort Aguada experience.

Pros: All the above.

Cons: Cleanliness at times takes a backstep, probably due to the size of the property. On checkin we found the Sit Out furniture (& its cushions) dirty, but were promptly replaced.

Tips: Try the private dinner in the garden near the pool. Its awesome. Check out the bay view & sunset points too. We would definitely visit again.
