It was a lovely break in the present Covid times... other than main pool everything seemed functional. This was my 5th visit to this wonderful property with beautiful beach... this time around I found some trash/empty beer bottles on the beach which I had not noticed before... hopefully hotel authorities take up responsibility of cleaning the beach on front of the hotel to make the stay even more pleasant

2/5 Poor

Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Disliked: Staff & service
Very disappointing overall
Really not great....pool was closed and this wasn’t disclosed when you booked....service was poor and not taj level at all....breakfast was buffet style, crowded and felt unsafe...the quality of guests was very unexpected. We’ve stayed at this property several times in the past but I have to say there is nothing to bring me back here in a hurry. There are far more charming properties, perhaps smaller, but better equipped to handle guests during this pandemic. Needless to say the Taj moved us to a great room with its own plunge pool when we complained so the last night was fabulous but when you’re only there three nights and feel awful for two, it’s just no fun!! Book a room with its own pool if you must go.
