Wonderful ResortPosted Apr 20, 2017
Pros: The staff members were all very friendly and the 56 acre grounds were very well kept and impressive! I wished we could have stayed even longer.
Cons: The rooms were slightly dated, but I understand they will be in the process of updating and renovating them, so all should be in order soon.
Location: We did not venture far from the hotel, there was no need to. Walks along the beach and a stop or two at beachfront bars/restaurants was great.
My wife, father-in-law, and 1yr old son stayed at the Taj for six nights. We were very impressed with the grounds of the hotel, and the service was impeccable. The beach area was clean and breezy and the options of activities at the hotel were numerous. The staff members loved our son and there seemed to be many other families. Anil, Flavian, and Inas were three staff members that really went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable; they were personable and shared a lot of good information about the resort and Goa. The food was excellent, I highly recommend a sunset and dinner at the Lobster Shack!

luxury stayPosted Feb 20, 2017
This was a luxurious day at a wonderful seaside resort. We felt pampered, wonderful service and nothing was too much effort, the spa was especially good. We were close to annexment beach and the sea was wonderfully warm. Not cheap and limited interaction with other guests.

Excellent propertyPosted Jan 21, 2017
Property is amazing. Very well maintained. The staff attitude is like no other, they truly treat you like royaltu. The only downside to this hotel is the old rooms, not worth 300++ usd but all other amenities are premium.

Somwtiibg was off this timePosted Dec 28, 2016
I've always gone back to Taj properties because of their well trained employees and service levels.This was the first time I visited during Christmas -the heavy outpour of customers and the lack of enough staff may have been the cause of my getting frustrated a few times.The food, amazing desserts Mr. D.S.Rawat puts out in Li Bai, the property as pretty as ever - all the big pieces were fine but hey isn't that why one chooses these premium properties over the rest - I take these as a given, it's the smaller stuff that wasn't up to scratch.It took me 7 calls and asking for a manager to book my airport pickup when I asked the lady who was picking my call each time what her name was she said she wasn't authorised to give me her name, which I know to be untrue.Id reserved a triple bed, where they'd said they'd place the third bed when we'd call for it. When I finally did call for it I was told all beds are taken and they can send across a mattress. I wasn't expecting my guests to sleep on a mattress!I was also told that this would be escalated to a supervisor who would call me up the next day. I waited till mid day next day , no call, so I called and was told the bed would be sent across and I wouldn't be charged for it, which was done at the time of checkout. While the charges for the third bed were nominal versus the overall,the experience was unfun.The.room was a little cramped with the third bed in.The wait at restaurants was longer.

Grand hotel a little too far from sights of Goa!Posted Dec 11, 2016
Pros: Privacy and restful holiday
Cons: Its perfect
Location: We had to drive a distance to see sights and what we saw was not worth seeing.
Arrived in mid day. Our rooom was ready! Greeted with a refreshing cold towel and drink. Staff went out of their way to make our stay great. As a service oriented hotel my husband was asked if he need ed anything and he joked and said a red Ferrari! We returned tour room later that day and the chef made him a chocolate red Ferrari and left it in our room. A rare treat!

November at Taj Exotica goaPosted Nov 26, 2016 on Hotels
I think Taj Exotica is one of the top hotels in Goa. Its location is in south goa and located on a stretch of a very long beach. The hotel security is very tight. Even though there is construction going on in the hotel area, the workers are managed well and you don't see many of them. The food is expensive, especially the Italian restaurant and the Eugane which offers 24 hr service. I think the food is not good value for the money. Definetly try their east indian specialty foods: masala, currey, seafoods.yamiii... have a nice time on the white sands of the Benaulim beach. Also crowd was mostly over 50 year olds. A few couples with kids. Not many singles. The wheather is hot in the mornings and cool at nights. Expect mosquito bites. Great pool area. Great staff specially security team. Expect to pay tips alotttt.. bugey service is fast. The hotel grounds are huge for goa. Didn't like the guys at the reception but the ladies are very polite. Overall you expect to recieve this kind of service when paying 500 usd + for a room/ suite per night. Cheers
