“Excellent hotel.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

Excellent hotel. The only shortcoming - the small territory and lack of a beach. Chinese restaurant it's very good. Spa good too, but therapists - masseurs don't correspond to hotel level. On beaches to us did massages much better, though not in such comfortable setting.

Traveled here with my family, we had a great time. The staff is excellent, very warm welcome. we really enjoyed the kids room and the pool. The sightseeing tours were a definite bonus. Rooms were great, loved the iPod docking stations and movie selections. Really a perfect destination for families looking for an escape.

Room Tip: Do take advantage of the sightseeing tours, it's a great way to see more of Goa!

I had just spent a week in Chennai which was good to leave!
Marriott was heaven. The setting was sublime, the service was sublime.the fish restaurant which is outdoors and overlooks the sea,with moonlight thrown in, must be the best fish restaurant anywhere. The chef should be famous!
It is a bit pricey but I thoroughly enjoyed everything about it.

Room Tip: I had a room with view off ocean, but it would make any difference which room because the whole plac...

I stayed here during month of Sept. I live in London and my holiday break was set at this beautiful rresort. The hotel is spacious good for a walk inside and a private beach to make it a perfect holiday destination. I was upgraded to club room and my day if arrival was on the house by dhanraj the duty manager on shift. My girlfriend and myself loved azure and the team there is amazing to name dhanraj from the bar and other bartenders they made all the cocktail at the best. Swimming pool is amazing and big thanks to housekeeping as well. I will be back in January

Room Tip: As for beach view

We chose the Marriott in Panaji as a result if "escaping" from a disastrous rental villa in Candolim in Goa.....we heard on our first night in Candolim that there was a high incidence of thefts and violence on tourists and this concern about general safety was reinforced by a look Athens FCO web site where deaths of British citizens were reported.

Panaji and the Marriot therefore offered us safety and security. The rooms were delightful, modern and well appointed. It turned out to be a school holiday period when we were there and hence the pool area an the general Restsurant could and were somewhat noisy. The Manager was aware of this and very kindly had our room moved to a quiet area with our own garden patio. The poolside restaurant in the evening provided wonderful seafood and steak dishes and was a welcome change to the busy buffet restaurant. The one comp,ain't we had was the constant loud piped music that pervaded every area including the restaurants, poolside and bar.

Overall a safe, secure and welcoming hotel and represented reasonable value for money.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room on the garden side - even there you get a side or partial view of the ocean.

After having a shocking experience at the Casa Candolim (in Candolim, avoid at all costs!) we escaped to the Marriott. Had a really lovely time there. Staff were friendly and attentive, pool is great, gym is great, room was just what we wanted, buffet is superb. Really really satisfied!

Goa marriott resort and spa is perhaps the most centrally located among the high end hotels in the beautiful state of Goa. Located in heart of its capital i.e. Panaji......the hotel is placed right where the river mandovi merges with the arabian sea. Although, statistically it has its private beach but its practically not more of a sedate river bank. The hotel however is large and spacious with an open lobby filled with over enthusiastic staff. They have many eating options including a Chinese restaurant and a poolside grill shack. The buffet breakfast was just sufficient buy not as lavish as u expect from a Marriott property. The hotel has a in house casino which is open 24hrs, so its a nice option if u want to loose some cash. Now coming to the rooms, although they are big in size they lack in finish. There are untidy corners and crevices not only in the rooms but also all around the property. The room service is not at all prompt as aren't the house keeping. Overall, the experience was just about satisfactory but with lots of room for improvement.
