We stayed two nights in Goa during the last week in November and had an incredible stay. Because of a delay during check-in, we were upgraded to a cottage which had recently been renovated. The room was incredible with all recent renovations (jacuzzi tub, LCD, surround sound, etc). The staff was very friendly and recommended fun activities for us.
Fort Aguada has it's own private beach, but we walked North along the shore to the grounded tanker to take in more of the area. Lots of locals were offering watersport activities, but they weren't too pushy and subsided after a "no thanks". The red sand of the beach was very different from the sand we were used to in California, although, there wasn't much surf to speak of.
Unique Quality: The pool is probably one of the most stand-out features of the hotel. The far side drops down below edge so it looks like it pours directly into the ocean. There were several restaurants on the properly -- we ate at three of them(Italian, Seafood, and Continental). The Seafood was our favorite.
The hotel provides lots of options for activities. We chose to rock climbing on the premises. There was a large group of early beginners in our group, so we didn't do as much as I'd hoped, but the views were incredible.
I didn't stay at the For Aguada Resort, I stayed at its sister property, the Taj Holiday Village. But I went there a couple of times for lunch and to the spa.
It is not as upscale as the Taj Holiday Village and needs some updating. It is rated 5* but it only deserves 4*. The rooms are a bit dated, the swimming pool has a fantastic view but it's not very nice and the gardens are not as well kept as its sister's property.
They have though a very good restaurant that serves excellent seafood and the staff is very attentive and friendly. If you can't afford the Taj Holiday Village go for this one. Its location is fabulous.
Unique Quality: The location and the amazing views from the gardens and pool.
Directions: Right in Fort Aguada.
I stayed here for a few nights, and I did like the place. Of course, the first resort that our bus dropped people of at, that had huts, looked far cooler, but this hotel was pleasant, and was in a very nice location. I was just happy to be out of the cities, and to finally be able to see clouds and not have black snot. Unfortunately, I can't provide a price, as I was here on a discount rate, so I dunno...
Unique Quality: This joint did have a pool, beach access, a life-sized chess board and a great little outdoors bar. The food here was pretty damn awesome too. I think I had a soup for dinner, and it really kicked ass (though watch it if you haven't been in India a while totally ignoring all the advice you were given about water, or you may be peeing out your ass a while after soup!).
