My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights to attend a wedding. Overall, we had a wonderful experience. The service was friendly and efficient. The room was clean and bright and nicely decorated. We were not fortunate to have one of the rooms overlooking the beautiful hotel grounds, but we did still enjoy our little sitting area. We ate several buffet style meals at the hotel and we loved the extensive selections, particularly at breakfast. We were spoiled with the made to order dosa. The grounds are expertly designed and maintained and we spent lots of time wandering around them in the mornings and evenings. We had Ayurvedic treatments at the spa which were very relaxing, except when the music went off for approximately 15 minutes and we could hear the spa attendants talking outside. Also the spa shower area was somewhat lacking, with a broken shower and insufficient towels. Overall it was a beautiful location for a wedding and we really enjoyed our stay.

If you are want to go away from the usual experience of Goa....a more calmer, relaxed, laid back and not crowded....you should be south goa bound.

And one of the bext choice to be in Kenilworth.

I was there courtesy a close friend's marriage and decided to go back there again.

The hotel and the rooms are very tastefully done. Beautiful landscaping which further opens to the beach...clean and not much crowded unlike North Goa beaches.

The service is extremely good except the room service.

Absolutely worth a try....so go...stay...and enjoy

Just back from a vacation at Goa. Stayed at the Kenilworth Resort. Although one had the apprehension of a vacation in an unknown resort, all my fears were laid to rest , the moment we entered the resort. it was a wonderful experience. The rooms are big and spacey. They had done up the room very well and it was five star standard everywhere. The staff are extremely courteous and understanding and go out of their way to help out. We had gone on a package deal which was worth every penny we spent. The resort is located on a beautiful serene beach front and the sea there was awesome. There was opportunity for water sports as well albeit by a private party but it kind of fit into the days schedule. The restaurant staff were very good. The spread laid out for the three meals was delightful. The Customer relations Manager , Mrs Theresa, is a wonderful host , always smiling and pleasing disposition. The swimming pool is one of the largest I have come across , and is maintained well. There are in house activities and a spa, run by Sohum. That fell way short of our expectations. The spas in the other resorts are much better. Everybody was courteous and helpful. I would recommend, Kenilworth to anybody who is looking for a lovely affordable and comfortable stay at Goa. They also have a complimentary pick up and drop. On the whole, we had a great time at the Kenilworth. Thanks to Mrs Theresa and her wonderful set of staff, I'll relish this trip for a long time.

we have been to Goa multiple times before staying in Kenilworth. This has been our second best experience of all hotels in Goa. The property is very well placed and next to a very decent beach. At first the entrance is not that appealing but with time it grows on you. Lobby area is nice and looks beautiful at night. However, the fountain at the entrance needs urgent cleaning.

At check in, we had a problem as we were booked in a Sea facing room. As there were no rooms available, we were put in a non-sea facing room.However, the staff was courteous and arranged for sea facing room the next day. We can pardon them as they were really nice and courteous during the whole episode.

They have a swimming pool of decent size and it is really well maintained. We spent most of our time at the pool. The bar at the pool is very decent and the barman there was really nice. In fact we asked him to make our favorite mock tail as per our recipe and he was glad to do it for us.

Food her is average with not much variety. This can be serious problem for long stays. However, the staff is very courteous and will help with any customization required on the items being served.

Rooms are comfortable and cozy with a mini balcony. Sea facing room actually meant sea facing as opposed to many other places (and the room which were presented to us on first day) where one can only get a glimpse of the ocean.

Entertainment center is well kept. Be careful to touch anything there as most of the activities are chargeable at reasonable prices. They should have done better with mentioning the prices at viewable location. However, I enjoyed playing on the gaming console and it was worth it. You can borrow some activity items for your personal use like we did with cards.

Overall it was a pleasant stay. With little bit more care and finesse, this property can be as good as five star. However, this property does provide very good value for money.

Room Tip: Be prepared to fight for real sea facing rooms if you have booked in the category. We were placed in...

Booked well in advance through a travel fair in the city, we were a little apprehensive whether we had made a wise decision.....but the overall experience was very good .

Would recommend this place for the well maintained property, courteous staff, proximity to the beach, amazing pool, beautiful gardens, sea-view room ( with not so big bathroom but with all necessary amenities) and smooth check in and an unhurried check out.Not to forget the live music played every evening!

Spa is good but very expensive despite the discount offered, restaurant manned by many trainees ( had some clumsy experiences - probably because they were too eager to please:-)

Have returned with happy memories!
