“Warm family hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2014

Really a pleasant experience with Family. In line with the Marriott experience across the world. Excellent Buffet, which had fair bit of Indian Veg food for us. Location very apt near the famous Miramar beach. Easy to get transportation to and fro. Would recommend anytime !

Stayed May 2013, traveled with family

This hotel was excellant. We stayed here for my sisters wedding for 3 nights which was happening on the grounds. The hotel was big, clean, spotless, child friendly and grounds were amazing. My daughter had a fab time in the kids pool and kids club. The food was amazing as there were a total of 12 of us staying here all staff were very friendly. The grounds of the hotels were amazing as we had a 3 day ceremony for my sisters wedding. I would definately stay here again.

Room Tip: All rooms are big we had a sea view room

We stayed 3 nights and four days at the Marriot in Miramer. Our stay was marked with beautiful memories of the property as well as the people who dint leave any stone unturned to cater to each and every needs of ours to the bit. We would like to thank Mr. Avinash, the front office Manager, who made our stay very comfortable and was quick to respond warmly for a tiny problem we had. Also , special thanks to the chef, who was most willing to customise the breakfast to our child. Overall, we loved our stay at the Marriot and hope to stay again.

Went to attend a marriage at Goa, Marriot!
Right in the middle of the city Panjim, the biggest woooow factor is the lobby with such a terrific view of the Arabian sea! Nice place to watch the sunset
Lovely pool for a great swim, drinks and some snacks
Rooms are great with small balcony, the spa is good too
Restaurants are very average, I think needs a lot of improvement. But I always think marriott brand is never associated with gourmet meals

Overall terrific for a family getaway

As with all hotels there are good and bad.
But despite some bad points the Goa Marriott managers and team managed to make our stay very special.

General tip
When you are having a full day in the hotel check out the deals for the azure package.
Free coffee and soft drinks all day. From 6pm till 8pm there is a small buffet selection and free alcoholic drinks..We did save quite a bit of money on this deal.
A great way for the hotel to encourage guests to stay in.

Room tip
Pay the extra and get a bay view. The view is just amazing day and night.Day ospreys fish outside your room. A great vista of the bay and the sea..Night. the lights of the fishing boats and party boats give an amazing show. With the sound of the waves on the beach and the chug of the fishing boats just mind blowing.


Whilst the hotel is amazing get outside and expllore Goa.

Panjin is a safe place to walk shop and eat.
Tip on travelling around.
Tuc tucs a great way to travel from outside the Hotel there are taxis which try and charge £3.00.
Walk to the main road and jump a Tuk tuk Lowest price we paid was 45p.Highest £1.00. They are so much fun. we gave most of the drivers the pound for the fun of negotiating.

Pool Great space to chill.
Pool bar great selection of drinks.
Reception cannot do enough for you;They will change money for you at reasonable rates.
Best rates we got w in panjin Thomas cooks on the main road all tuk tuk drivers know where it is..
Treat yourself or better half to a massage. Great service and really relaxing.

Laundry service is not worth it. Very expensive and the clothes were not clean The laundry manager was aggressive and arrogant..But I am sure that was just an isolated incident.

The clothes in Panjin are so cheap Just buy new ones. Even cheaper in the market.Good quality tee shirts around £2.00.
Christmas was a very special time at the hotel.

Over all great hotel. Thanks to all the Managers and team for giving us an Amazing experience.

We enjoyed it so much that we are waiting for the managers to tell us if we can hold our wedding there.

Room Tip: Amazing rooms are bay veiw. Our room was 388. Check out the azzure package

Great property - even though it is on the smaller side the location on (central goa) and by a quiet river opening into the sea is great. You really dont need a room just lounge by the pool or in the lobby!

The sunset is best watched from the lobby or your room balcony - but what ever you do dont miss that! Sip a drink while doing that ....

Having said that the rooms are not necessary they really are greatly appointed and spotlessly clean.

The staff are great and friendly and ever accomodating. The restaurants and lounge is great. The breakfast buffet offers a wide selection of food with really nothing at all missing.

Oh another must do is to enjoy an early morning cup of chai in the balcony enjoying the sunrise.

While you are there also enjoy the Spa - supremely relaxing. While you are there enjoy walks on the beach!

Last word on Marriot - its a chain that makes you feel welcome, safe and at home where ever they are in the world.

Room Tip: You need to take a bay view room to enjoy the stay - choose a corner one if you can it is great. If...
