I have stayed in this hotel several times and simply love the location. Most rooms have a beach view and seeing the waves come in gives you a thrill that cannot be explained in words.
Also, it is great value for money compared to the other Taj Hotels in the country which are priced way beyond what they deserve.
I liked the restaurant on the ground floor and lot and the beach view that comes with it. THe only grudge I have with Taj is that their buffet is non veg heavy and being a vegetarian, I often do not find enough choice.
The rooms on the ground floor are abysmal as they do not even get proper sunlight. It seems like a dungeon to me and I was unfortunate to stay in that room twice during my stay and even though I had asked for a room on the second floor or beyond. The responses that I got for this goof up from their side was very poor and hence after that I desisted from staying at Taj.
Its only for the location I am giving 3 stars to it.
