Taj Fort Aguada Resort & Spa, Goa

Reviewed June 11, 2012

I had the opportunity to spend 4 nights at this hotel. First and foremost the airport pick up was seamless - in my previous travels with another hotel, ensuring we were on the "list" of guests for airport pickup was a problem, so was happy with this. The hotel location is beautiful. Because the Taj owns the adjacent property as well, there was a corner of the beach that was not private, but less frequented than most other beaches, so we were able to enjoy the water and water sports provided there. The property is right in front of the Fort, so we had easy access to the fort to enjoy some great views as well. The hotel property is dated, and the rooms are definitely in need for an update (specifically the washrooms) - but overall the property is well laid out and there are a lot of areas to sit and relax at...be it at the pool, on one of the terraces or in a hammock. The food was of excellent quality, but we found the breakfast to be a bit monotonous. Service provided by staff across the board was terrific. The hotel was quite busy during our stay, with a lot of families with children. We would definitely recommend this hotel for a relaxing family vacation.

Room Tip: Choose a room on the bottom floor (1st floor). These rooms have a walk in terrace and a small sit o...

Anybody shelling out to have a vacation at TAJ expects the kind of services to live up to its brand name. In short i would say TAJ HAS MISERABLY FAILED TO LIVE UP TO ITS NAME , starting from the rooms which are extremely small in size , food spread was poor obviously to the amount we paid to have a AMERICAN PLAN , Pool is very small in size , In house dinning room extremely small to hold the large no of guest residing in the hotel . Guest usually have to wait for 20 to 30 mins , 3 times a day to get a table. Out dated bathroom fittings also we had a heavy water lea keg in our room one of the nites due to some maintenance problems. This is not expected from a brand name like TAJ -- VERY BAD , I WOULD,NT SUGGEST ANYBODY TO GO . In fact just 2 months back we stayed at MARRIOTT RESORTS & SPA IN GOA , BELIEVE ME IT WAS WORTH EVERY SINGLE PENNY SPEND, IN FACT WE HAD SPEND MORE IN BOOKING AT TAJ. BUT NOT WORTH THE AMOUNT. COMPLETELY A DISAPPOINTING EXPERIENCE. IT WAS OUR FIRST AND PROBABLY LAST STAY AT ANY OF THE TAJ HOTELS COZ AFTER THIS KIND OF EXPERIENCE I WOULD,NT CONSIDER TAJ ANYWHERE ACROSS INDIA.

This hotel's location wins it all, when you just get out of your room and feel the cool sea breeze and check the view, it feels fantastic and one falls in love with the nature! Hotel staff is polite and helpful. Rooms are great, depending on which ones you choose.

Food variety was great but the taste was substandard for some products. Their swimming pool is good but is a bit small, sometimes gets congested. Rest of the things like restaurant locations, the historic architecture, game room etc are great.

Its a great place to go and stay with family and have some uninterrupted relaxing family time in Goa.

Room Tip: Choose the ones with their back doors facing beach side.

This is one of the beautiful classic property on the beach side . But the quality of food is not so good but average. Also it's not worth the amount they have charged at the year end. Also one of our family member got the room for a night at almost half the price we paid through you

This hotel is built on the ramparts of an old Portuguese fort, which adds history in a beautiful setting, Taj organized a pick up from the airport and their hospitality during our stay was great.

Breakfast at the hotel's Latitude restaurant was good with a wide selection of cuisine (delicious cook to order omeletes and dosas). We ate there in the evenings a few times too, but the quality of those meals were average at best. I think this restaurant is best for breakfast. We didn't get a chance to try the other restaurants in the hotel (have heard that their sea food restaurant is pretty good).

Just outside the hotel there is a beach shack called "Tony's", which I'd highly recommend for lunch. Tony gets his seafood fresh everyday and will be able to cook up a variety of traditional goan dishes (he cooks up a mean goan fish and prawn curry).

For those interested in water sports, there are numerous operators outside the hotel offering jet ski rides, parasailing etc. INR 500-1000, depending on type of ride.

We also took a tour (organized by the hotel's travel desk) of the old churches in Goa, which is definitely recommended if you haven't seen them.

Overall, this was a wonderful stay and we look forward to coming back!

Room Tip: We stayed in a premium indulgence room w/ terrace. The room was very spacious and the large open te...

I spent 3 days at the Fort Aguada resort by Taj Vivanta. The resort has a great view and tremendous landscape. The beach is very near and wasn't very crowded. We took an all meals package for 9000 which was very good and we had our pick from a variety of restaurants across the Fort Aguada resort as well as the Village by Taj. The only downside is the prices for water sports here are almost 3 times that of other beaches in North Goa. I would recommend going to Baga beach for that.

Room Tip: If you want to play in the lawn take a room on teh ground floor. You will lose the view but you will...

I had visited Fort Aguada with my team for an offsite and it was probably the best visit I had to Goa. This property is on one of the best beaches, excellent views of the sea from our room and a fab buffet breakfast. One of the things I was very worried about when I was heading to Goa was the aspect of whether I would get vegetarian food and thankfully the breakfast I had here ensured I lasted the day. Excellent breakfast and some very good fun activities ensured that this visit was an fun filled trip for all.
