“Taj and Goa...best combo.”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

Had planned this trip to celebrate father-son duo birthday for a complete week. Had a complete awesome relaxing experience. Nice welcome with guitars and songs, a weeded garland, large villas, good lushes of greens, plenty of palms...there is lot to talk about. Pool-bar with sea view and courtious bartenders cannot be matched with any other luxury. Attached long-sea beach for morning and evening walks, nice food spreads, lotsa live counters...you can't look for anything more. Just go for it.

Room Tip: Take a premium villa located near Carabela. Its near to pool and sea beach. You will save lot of tim...

First visit to Goa and was blown away by the hospitality. From the moment that we were picked at the airport to be offered simple things like cool bottled water, refreshing drinks when were checking in to an amazing dining experience across the two hotels (Holiday Village and Fort Aguada). It was a refreshing visit for me and my family and would go back there in a heart beat.

Highly recommend to book a room with a private balcony

I had booked two sea view superior rooms from August 28 to August 31, 2013. Facilties, staff grroming, loaction, food was excellent. However, room cleanliness was not upto the mark. Bed was uncomfortable, so could not sleep properly. Location was perfect, sea view was marvelous, beach was clean. Had the option of dining in at Taj Holiday village also, which was a welcome change. Resort had good travel desk, which is quite helpful in planning the outings. If you do not wish to explore various beaches and Churches of Goa, this is the best place to hang out on private beach.

Overall experiecne was excellent and relaxing excepting rooms.

Room Tip: Choose a sea facing room with sit out space.

It was my honeymoon trip and I decided to make it special with a stay at Taj. We stayed in the main building and had booked a sea-view room as suggested in other reviews. While the property, resturants, bars, pools etc are really nice, we didn't find the rooms as per the 'Taj' image. Probably, I couldn't appreciate the 'Fort' theme.
We went to Holiday village for breakfast and found the food to be better their. The sunset deck in Holiday village is Heaven. We went there in night. The sound of sea hitting the rocks just beneath your feet, the wooden barricade.. Its a place were you can spend hours just looking at the sea.

Coming back to Fort Agauda, staffs were courteous and helpful as expected! All our demands were met without any hesitation and we were also treated with a complimentary cake. Access to beach is very easy from both Fort Agauda and Holiday Village and though other's can come, it becomes a private beach because of its location.
Its a beautiful place, no complaints. May be they can make the rooms more lavish!

I went there with family for vacations !!! The hotel is very very beautiful. I loved the landscaping, swimming pool and the rooms !!! However the food is very expensive !! But it is 5 star hotel !! The hotel is adjacent to another Taj property at walking distance. The beach area in down below. Overall very good experience.

Room Tip: Rooms opposite the garden area have open space in the front should be requested for !!

The hotel property is located at Fort Aguada and is beautifully built. The best thing is the service. Though Taj hotels is famous for extraordinary service, this hotel is beyond extra-ordinary. They make you feel special in all ways.!! MUST STAY!

Room Tip: Sea facing rooms are most lovely. Also, you must try staying in their Suites.
