A TripAdvisor member reviews his stay at the Park Hyatt Resort and Spa in Goa This was our 3rd visit to the hotel, and this time we were with 2 other families with young kids...The food - we ate buffet mostly - was outstanding this time; and had enough variation each day to keep kids and us happy. Oh yes! The most splendid water bodies in Goa - so kids once again had endless hours of fun sliding, jumping and making merry. “
 
A TripAdvisor member comments on her stay at the Taj Green Cove Resort, Kovalam, “I was traveling with my 2 year old daughter. It’s the most peaceful setting I've ever seen and my husband is in love with this resort since day 1. They really pamper you especially if you have a baby along. Hotel staff is excellent. They are very polite and very helpful”.
 
A TripAdvisor member says of his family’s stay at Vivanta by Taj , Jodhpur, “Our kids loved the pool, the early evening puppet show and magic show, as well as the live music at meals. They also played ping pong in the ornate strategy room. We enjoyed our meals there very much and thought the dishes were non-routine and well prepared. The staff were very attentive and we felt pampered”.
