Ours was a family vacation at kenilworth ,a short stay of 3 days , including my very aged grandfather. The resort is beautiful and completely shut off from the rest of the world; made us feel very relaxed. Apart from a few glitches , which was attended to by the staff, we had a great time at kenilworth. The warm hospitality of the entire staff is what we came away with from our stay here.
i would definitely recommend Kenilworth for a short stay:)

We a family of 4 stayed for 8 nights from 5th to 13 th july. Had a wonderful time at the resort. The property is situated right at the beach. The rooms are spacious and the swimming pool is great. However, the most striking feature of the stay was the excellent service by the entire kenilworth team. The management seem to have picked the best people in the industry. The resturant staff seemed to have a knack of anticipating our needs. Incidently the food is excellent. We have stayed at various hotels in goa and can say with confidence that this hotel provides the best variety of buffet food. The chef is open to customise also and on my daughters request made mexican food though it was not a part of their menu. The property is good and the lobby area is excellently designed. Several spacious and comfortable seating spaces . We enjoyed the lobby bar and the knoweledge of its bartender. Would surely stay here only in oir next visit to goa.

Room Tip: Rooms on the second floor facing garden are the best. 236, 238 etc

kenilworth made our family holidays...." a lifetime memory treasure".
We planned our family holidays of 75 members for 3 days/ 2 nights here. We stayed from 27/6/14 to 29/6/14. The resort is very classy and beautiful. It has a huge swimming pool and is divided in 3 parts accordingly to the depth of pool. The private beach of resort is vry clean. Gardens are huge.
There is a funzone, full of entertaining activities with a mini theatre for kids. The staff was also vry co-operative. Food was sumptuous. To sum up i would say every member of my family from the age of 85 yrs to 2 yrs relished the property.

Room Tip: There are three wings in the hotel, choose the wing having swimming pool view.

I now know why people love Goa so much.
Specifically, South Goa! For the first time in a long time, I was able to relax. I lost sense of day, date and time.

I was traveling with my mum and we had a warm welcome when we arrived at the Resort. We were lucky to get an appointment when we visited the spa. We opted for the Ayurvedic Massage, which I regretted after as you actually become drenched in oil! However, there is a steam room and shower facility available after the treatment.

Beds were not too comfortable, but fine for a night or two. (We were there for 3 nights). The only thing I really liked about the bathroom was the "radio" option - where you can turn up a dial and listen to whatever is playing on TV! Otherwise, it's very basic.

The dining area and food was average, but had a nice vibe at dinner time. There's also live music. The "Chaat" options were especially delicious! Unfortunately at the time we were there, there were no activities available (like water skiing etc...). When we took a walk down to the beach, security told us that we weren't allowed to walk on the beach at that time - it was raining on and off. Nevertheless, we spent some time at the poolside.

The nicest aspect of our stay was when my mum was surprised with a cake with "Congratulations" on it. It happened to be my parents' 33rd wedding anniversary! Well, my dad was home in South Africa, but it was so nice for the hotel to do that for guests. It really gave a personal touch and makes one feel super special.

Be warned of irritating flies! Of course, in that humidity - it's unavoidable and I'll admit I was amused by an electric fly swatter gadget that someone walks around with zapping them!

It took about 45 minutes to drive to Panaji (Panjim) where we spent one of the days. That's why I said in the beginning - if you want to escape, with no intention of really doing much, a resort like this could be for you. Otherwise, there's very little to do around that area during the time we were there (June).

All in all, thanks to everyone who made it a pleasant stay. Appreciated :)

I stayed with my friends in July recently. The location is very good. The hotel premises is excellent. The pool area is fantastic. but the service is very poor. The staff is friendly but not properly trained. The food quality not good. Also pls check your pool side bar bill as the rates in bar menu and actual bill differs.

Utorda is cleanest beach one can ever get in Goa and best suited for couples and families. Kenilworth is good property with huge pool and good access to beach. Pros and cons are:
Pros:
* Cleanest white sand beach
* Clean compact rooms with some rooms with balconies
* Largest and cleanest swimming pool with exclusive pool for children and poolside bar
* Non-intrusive staff and good privacy
* Quick room service and house-keeping
* Some rooms with glass-pane bathrooms
Cons:
- Small Compact rooms
- Bathrooms without health faucet
- No sea facing rooms
- Not much activities and updates
- Expensive transport for sight seeing and pickup / drop to city. You are in the mercy of cab unions
- Not so friendly staff but then does not mean they are not good, may be they want to give couples full privacy. You wont see any staff members greeting you are hotel manager wishing you like in majorda or club mahindra
- Buffet food not tasty and limited but expensive
- I rate club mahindra Varca better in food
- Majorda better in offering large spacious rooms

But cleanest property which well maintained and great beach access with superlarge pool. Go for kenilworth if you are looking for non-intrusive staff and clean white sand beach couple with large pool.

Room Tip: Take room with balcony and glass bathrooms
