    Delightful stay!”

    I would 100% recommend Fort Aguada to all travellers especially families with young children. Our every request was catered to and people like Tanmay, Abigail, Umesh and Yashwant made our stay extra special! Right from the outset when we were given an early check-in, right through to the end when we were allowed a late check out and provided a car to the airport sans charges, Taj’s renowned hospitality shown through in every way. I imagine the staff waking up each day and dreaming up new ways to delight guests - my son received a birthday cake on 3 separate occasions and Abigail took great pains to make his 5th birthday special with a handwritten card and his favourite superhero Batman out in front! I will also not forget our anniversary cake delivered to us at exactly 12am - as we were checking out next day. All these genuine and thoughtful touches are what makes the Taj brand and Fort Aguada in particular, an enduring success. Thank you for making our stay special!

    Good Location, excellent ambiance & good food”

    The property was amazing in 32 acres. It had many activities like zipline, rock climbing, archery, dart, paintball, pellet shooting etc. We had seen Goa several times so we didn't step out of the property. But we had enough things to explore inside the property itself. The property had a private beach as well. The food and the service was excellent.

    The Staff Make It.”

    The staff at Fort Aguada are very friendly and welcoming, always smiling and ready to help you. I had a deluxe sea view and the room was nice but smaller than I would have expected. Another downside of the room was that it had an adjoining door. Definitely request a room without this. I could hear everything in the other room. I asked to change rooms but they were full the whole time I was there. Also, ask to be away from any stairs. It wasn't as quiet as I would have liked. The bed was a little harder than I would have liked, too. I don't want to give a bad impression. Overall, I was very happy with my stay and would stay again. The breakfast buffet was quite good with many options. I hired a driver a few days to take me sightseeing and I found that price to be reasonable. However, I did find it overpriced to get a quick drop down to the main area of Candolim.

    Great for a short stay where you don't plan to leave the hotel much”

    The staff and facilities at this hotel were excellent. The pool was great and there was a good choice of restaurants where the food was delicious. The room however was slightly out-dated and the furniture was worn out. During my stay, part of the hotel was under construction which left areas noisy and dirty which was disappointing and I wasn't informed of this prior to the visit. My room also wasn't ready when I arrived and after several delays at airports on the way I found it unacceptable to have to wait until after 6pm to get into my room without even the offer of a drink or coffee as I waited. The airport pick up and drop off was great. I wouldn't not recommend this hotel but might not choose this again as I think there are better options close by.

    Stay at the Taj”

    My family has been staying at Taj properties/hotels for several years and we are never disappointed by the level of service and hospitality. The staff at the Fort Aguada were as usual excellent. Our trip however started on a bad note as the AC in our room was not functioning and we couldn't sleep all night. However, the next day the AC was fixed. The only area for improvement is the wifi service which continued to be terrible throughout our stay. We had a wonderful time at the Fort Aguada and look forward to our next trip soon.

    We arrived with sickness from our stay in China. The front desk called a local doctor who came to our room that same night and prescribed medications that were delivered to our room within an hour. Everyone there treated us like royalty during our entire stay. The food was excellent. The resort is as nice as we have experienced in many other countries, including the US.

    the pools, the views, the location

    We had a great week-long stay during Diwali week. The pools were great, both at Fort Aguada and at Holiday Village - it was great to have the options. The kids club was a nice bonus, with many activities on offer, although we spent so much time at the pool(s) that my five year old didn't really take advantage of it. It was great to have the exit from the resort onto the fort and beach area where we could walk around to explore. The food was really good, too, we really enjoyed pool-side drinks and the club sandwiches almost every day. The nicer restaurants didn't open until 7, which is hard to manage with two young children. It would have been nice to try the different restaurants within the resort. As it was early in the season, there weren't too many options close by in town or on the beach. My only 'complaint' which is usually the same at any big resort is that the price was quite high for the resort food and drink. Other than that I would highly recommend the Vivanta Fort Aguada!

    Resort Vacation : Private slice of Goa”

    sea view, thoughtful staff, great food

    Superb property by Taj. It's far away from everything though - you want to visit here if you're looking for a resort vacation in Goa. It's got superb sea views and is right by the beach ofcourse, it's a public beach that can get busy, when we visited, it had water sports, might vary by season. Staff was very thoughtful, we were traveling with an infant. They went out of their way to help us multiple times, very thoughtful too. Getting to and from the resort is a chore, you'd best relax at the resort, they've got superb facilities (pool / activities / live music) and great food. It all adds up though - it's a five star after all! This place is excellent for families - plenty for everyone to do. Highly recommended.

    The stay was great. The staff was excellent. Food wasnt upto a 5 star standard, but was above average for sure. The only issue I had was the room. It seemed below par for a 5 star hotel. There could have been more comfort and definitely needs refurbishment. Especially the bathrooms!! Still, it wasnt bad to sour the experience in anyway. Just felt that i got lesser value for money because of the rooms!!

    Best experience & staff in goa at taj. PERFECT”

    The access to pool from room , the beach attached & the treatment from the staff .

    Its my first time in goa, as i recently shifted to india. I loved this hotel , the beach view , water sports , pool , drinks , the seafood restaurant , buffet breakfast at latitude just everything. I would like to mention specially about the staff that touched my heart with their service - At the jiva spa - YuVRaj was generous enough to adjust according to my time and do my hair , i was satisfied . Maria,messi and pessudy (i forgot how to spell this name ) were so cool too. At the restaurants - Dilip , esterado , tyron were very kind and provided great service. The reception - monalisa (she was so sweet) , yogan das were so warm& friendly in their behaviour. There was another girl i dont recollect her name , she was at the travel desk on the last day , it was my birthday and asked her for houseboat details and she helped us with her true efforts and called Jaychandra manager who made my birthday SO special . Jaychandra ordered a cake for me , i was touched by this kind gesture and helped us go to the best houseboat place and made my day so memorable . Basically i wish i could write all names but i dont remember all names sadly lol. In short every staff right from community car arranger to the managers , every single person is so kind and professional . The staff makes a hotel . The hotel maybe beautiful or luxurious but it wouldnt be successfull without great courteous staff ! So hats off to your service , i am glad i choose taj over leela hotel :) i would be visiting taj again and this time with my whole family not just my husband .

    We were upgraded to Luxury Bliss Villa. It was on top of a hill with great view of the Ocean and beach. It's beautifully landscaped garden and walking paths and the view from rooms and veranda was majestic and it was not necessary to leave the premises. Clean spacious rooms with good amenities. Fantastic Taj hospitality. Nothing can beat it. There won't be any other choice than Vivanta by Taj - Fort Aguada for me in my next visit to Goa.
