Its really not a resort at all. Dont just go by the words. And the manager it self says dont book through Expedia. And its really hard find the hotel in such a small street. And please take the number of the hotel guy prior otherwise you will be lost in finding.
I wish a little more of natural beauty that is inherent in goa added to taj town and not village
It lacks jacuzzi and spa
The staff is v good but like a five star
They should improve to give it a perfect Rustic village feel
I am sure they have think banks to work out on this
Though overall experience was good, the responsiveness needs to be improved further. Also any kind of disturbance to the guests due to ongoing civil work has to be controlled for guests to have a peaceful stay.

The stay was good the front office staff were very cooperative & also helped me with an early check in , however the breakfast was not at all good with just an option of poori / poha , bread toast & omelette with a canned juice , the hotel must provide a buffet breakfast instead of service on the table as the waiters were lethargic! The rooms were spacious & the house keeping staff cleaned the room with efficiency, pool was small but it's ok , over all a good hotel except the waiters every thing was good
I booked through Expedia and I chose an option to pay at the hotel, however hotel somehow decided to charge my card before my check in. I wanted to pay through the different card but left with no choice. Very inconvenient, called the hotel but no flexibility was shown. I am sure it doesn't make a lot of difference to the hotel, but small things do count. I have shared my concern with Expedia as well.
Pocket Guide: Goa Candolim Beach - Fort Aguada Hotels
The Candolim Beach in North Goa is a perfect alternative to the crowded beaches of Calangute or Anjuna. 15 km from Panaji, it can be very easily reached from Mapusa and Calangute. For those who prefer a serene and tranquil beach environment, this is the one of the best options. The area provides abundant opportunities for snorkeling, fishing, and diving. Being a prime tourist destination, the area has a number of hotels and guesthouses in the close vicinity of the beach. A must-see landmark at Candolim is Fort Aguada on Sinquerim beach—the best-preserved Portuguese fort in Goa.
