Went to Goa for an office meeting but that seriously did not limit my experience at the Vivanta by Taj - Fort Aguada. The moment you enter you are greeted with this fantastic view of the beach. The start to a perfect recipe for a good holiday (read office meeting too ). Pleasant & courteous staff. Was put up in the main building that has two storeys. Rooms were good. Conference facilities were decent, just in case anyone is even thinking in that direction. The food was alright. Not a fan but the breakfast spread is really good. The best part of this hotel is the proximity to the beach and they have loads of activity for kids inside the hotel during the day. For dinner we went outside the hotel to this place called Kohiba. Good joint for a night out and at a walk-able distance from the hotel. All in all a nice getaway.
Location wise the hotel was good. The hotel was conveniently located. It was 45 minutes away from the Railway Station and Bus Stop. The staff behaviour was good. The interior as well as exterior appearance of the hotel was good. The room was spacious, neat, clean and well maintained. The amenities like AC, TV and geyser were working properly. We had an ocean view from the room. The food quality was good both veg and non-veg. I didn't face any delay during check-in and check-out. Swimming pool was there in the hotel. They organize sightseeing and arranged vehicle for sightseeing trip. The hotel was value for money. I will recommend this hotel to other travellers.

Thrilling experience as the hotel is near to beach
It was a relaxation trip with family and the hotel was located near the beach. I did not face any difficulty in reaching as they provide pick-up and drop facility. The staff at the hotel were friendly and co-operative. The rooms were spacious, clean and maintained hygienic with the entire ambience at a functioning condition. There were no activities organized by the hotel. The food at the hotel was delightful. There was no delay in check-in and check-out. I would like to recommend this hotel to other travellers and the money paid was reasonable. It was a thrilling experience as the hotel is near to beach.
I ,Renuka Laxmeshwar along with my family had gone to Goa Fort Aguada Resort for a holiday. We were booked from 5.5.2006 to 7.5.2006 in your hotel nearly a month ago. My children , son who is 9 years old and daughter 3 years old were really looking foward to stay in Taj Hotel and ofcourse so were we as Taj is one of the best hotels in the world.But on our arrival in Goa at 1.00 pm in the Hotel I was disappointed as I was not give a room immediately. I can understand that it being a weekend there must have been some problems from your side . But wating for a room to be allotted to us for 2 hours is a little bit to much and trying my and my children\'s patience. It was not plesant waiting for a room , inspite of booking your hotel well inadvance.
The room allocation was not the only experience I had , on 7.5.2006 I went to Sea Shell Restaurant for dinner . I had butter fish and to my luck that was rotten and stinking. I did bring the same to the notice of the staff there and the cook did say sorry and owned up that there were some rotten fish mixed in the fresh fish due to his mistake. Las t thing that I expected in Goa was to be served a ROTTEN FISH .
We / I expected Taj to give us/me great experience and fantastic holidays as Taj is a 5 Star hotel and we pay for the same.
Hope Taj can do better than just saying sorry
Best Experience: On the beach we had a great time .
