I have stayed in Deluxe allure suite with my wife and daughter.It was seaview room which have one bedroom,one living area and a balcony.We can see the sea and the beach from the room and balcony.Hotel was spacious and food was excellent.Reception,travel desk and askdesk persons were prompt and efficient.I was a little bit disappointed with restaurant personnels,though.As the hotel was already crowded even in late October,often we had to wait a few times during breakfast,but the lady managing the entrance was not polite,once after she had allotted a table to us,but forgot the same and actually told us to go out when we had already taken food on the plate!
The spa was nice and professional.For the children there were games like pool table,archery,target shooting which was fun.There was an activity area for children also.For those who wants to play tennis/squash you must bring your sports-shoe,as you probably do(I didn't).And being an avid reader myself,I would like if there was a bigger bookshop with more choice of books.

Room Tip: Book seaview rooms,you can see some adventure sports activity also,it may help you to chose what to...

Goa in rains is an experience that many have only recently started to wake up to. Whilst the shacks are firmly shut, water sports nonexistent and the crowds conspicuous by their absence, the green carpet that Nature rolls out following the watery turbulence of Monsoon more than makes up for it. Because its not on the popular tourist map yet, this also is an opportunity to find great deals at starred properties which will otherwise relieve you of your purse rather quickly during season.

Taj Aguada (along with the adjoining Holiday Village) is a great property and a landmark in North Goa. It is built on the ramparts of the old Fort and the centuries old Portuguese construction accentuates the well appointed luxury of the modern resort that has now taken over. Rooms echo with luxury, the swimming pool almost but not quite overlooking the sea is splendid and the many restaurants within the resort will leave your hunger satiated but the senses hankering for more. If you feel like eating outside, there are many restaurants both within walking as well as a short bike ride distance and the popular Calangute-Baga road is also not very far. There’s no beach to speak of at Aguada, but you can get a (free) ride to the neighboring Holiday Village which has a small but lovely beach. Be careful during the rains though for the sea can get very rough and the standing advice is not to get in. Sports facilities at the activity center are quite wide ranging with TT, Squash, Cricket, Tennis and an adequate gym all of which will doubtless keep you completely occupied.

Taj hospitality is well worth the price it comes at. Guests are truly taken care of and with the smorgasbord of activities available, there is never a dull moment. The high ratings on Tripadvisor are an accurate reflection of reality and you would surely come back wishing for more.

Sincere advise just stay away from this hotel unless you have lots of money and not sure how to proceed.

its a joke when they say the hotel is 5 star. Its not even the best 2 star hotel in Goa. Hotel Rates are of course 5 star and the food so pathetic. They have a theory of condensation within the room , they have a sit out but was told not open the door as the room gets wet due to condensation which is worst statement I heard after paying nearly 12000 per day.

Our trip is only 2 days old since we returned back , me and wife are thinking of the wonderful trip we had last year at a 3 star property which stands out in our mind.

Room Tip: Just avoid this hotel , I am sure they are better hotel in Goa.

Right then, what can one say about a hotel that has 786 reviews already. It's got to be one of the most well known properties in Goa and with very good reason.

The best asset for the property is really the phenomenal view of the sea especially during sunrise and sunset. I was fortunate to get a room with a view. Further, the property is so huge that you can walk around and get some alone time. There is also a direct access to the beach - which also has water sports.

The service is outstanding - shuttle services from the airport, very good breakfast (a delightful spread).

The one downside is that clearly the hotel needs some investment as it is ageing - I was surprised to see the paint of the walls of my room coming off... something completely unexpected

Stayed here for 10 days, the building some of the buildings are old and need renovation to bring up to expected Taj standards. The only 5 star accommodation are the cottages which are well removed from the beach and pool. Pool is small and overcrowded. However this hotel has a top notch location and service was great and that earns it a 4 rating.

Room Tip: The lowest "level" rooms are the best!!

Our office took us to Taj Fort Aguda for a conference of five days and it was one of the best conferences I have ever attended!!! The best part of the of the hotel is its location. The hotel is actually a fort, which is right bang in the middle of the sea.....the view if absolutely amazing. Our room was sea facing and had a small garden in front of it.....the sea was right in front of the garden!!! The food is so so...nothing too great to talk about.....the facilities are also ok. The best thing about the hotel is the view.

I stayed in Fort aguada beach resort built and managed by TATAs but actually the name TATA never creeps in our mind,because this beach resort is so good ,so nice,so worth for the money spent we forget the name TATA but when AGUADA BEACH RESORT the very name one feel it belongs to TATA and our mind and heart feel just for AGUADA BEACH.
persons who stay be it one day or two days or even ten days can never show bored feel or face, they love each minute stay as if this belongs to them as a palace.
THE BEACH RESORT IS MUCH LIKE RELAXING. A PERSON LOVE TO BE BOTH IN THE RESORT AND ON THE BEACH.
In other resorts we feel like to walk, swim and enjoy the stay the sands and watch the tourists but in this resort it is like heaven feel as long on stays.
This resort is LOVE AT SIGHT .
Before I travelled or planned the very feel of staying in this magnificient resort I became so thrilled and joyfull not for the sea or beach or sands,it was just the very idea of having a chance to stay not for once but twice at the same time.
FIRST THREE NIGHTS JUST MELTED LIKE SNOW.
i felt so sad 3 days and nights went so fast I came back after exit and that too in few hours time and extended the stay by another 3 nights.
SO good is the rooms and the dining place filled with people and the very sitting at dining place is enough feel for one never to get bored.
FOOD WAS SO GOOD,AND THE SWIMMING POOL TO WATCH WAS ENOUGH FEEL FOR ME AND FAMILY
FORT AGUADA BEACH IS REALLY CHERISHING TO REVISIT THAT IS THIS REVIEW TO THE BEACH RESORT.
