The Best Hotels in Goa for Families
1. Taj Exotica Goa (luxury)
Benaulim, South Goa. Hands down, the best resort for families. The hotel has an outdoor play area and an indoor play room for kids. Loads of activities for the whole family including archery, cricket, golf, cooking and dance classes, chess, bicycles, and water sport equipment. The beach is beautiful and the swimming pool large and kid-friendly.
2. ITC Grand Goa Resort & Spa (luxury)
Arossim Beach, South Goa. Pool is huge with varying levels and a gentle water slide. Rooms are spacious and have large bathrooms with huge tubs. The hotel has a private beach.
3. Resort Rio Calangute (moderate)
Calangute, North Goa. Great pool with a shallow kids’ area. Rooms are large and staff very friendly. The resort has a kids playroom and several good restaurants including an Italian restaurant that serves pizza.
