“Very good family spa hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2014

Arrived and were greeted very warmly with a shell necklace. Into a truly great view form the lobby. The location was half way between airport and other Goa beaches such as Baga. So for us an excellent location. Quite location and in the evening weather permitting the sunset view over the fort is amazing. The staff were very helpful and positive. Rooms are a good size, had a garden view room. I can imagine the ocean facing rooms are awesome. Will definitely be back with the family.

It was December when I visited Goa and selected Marriott as I was having Marriott points and I tagged as Platinum member of Marriott. Visited with family. Marriott provided complementary pickup from Air-port and the luxury and services offered by Marriott was awesome. The pool side area adjacent to MiraMar Beach is awesome.

Room Tip: Take Ground floor Room, Beach side, you will get chairs outside room.

Stayed here with family for 3 days. The location of this hotel (next to Miramar beach) is as close to beach as you can get. You can leave your slippers/shoes near the back side door and enjoy a stroll on beach anytime you wish!
Breakfast and food is good with variety of options. It is quite infant/kid friendly hotel, with milk available in the smiley cup anytime you want. Parking space is sometimes an issue (quite cramped) but complementary valet parking is available. This is close to some other good eating places as well.

Room Tip: Opt for a room with sea-facing view...breathtaking views!!

Dear Guest,

Greetings from the Goa Marriott Resort and Spa!

We appreciate you taking valuable time out for writing this positive review about us .We are pleased you were able to relax and unwind with us at our beautiful resort, soaking up the sun and the sand. Our chefs are delighted with your feedback about food and the breakfast spread. As a resort, we pride ourselves to be child friendly and making every affair, a family affair.. We are so glad we stood true to the ‘Marriott Way’ . We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your feedback about the parking area. We agree, it can get a little cramped sometimes, mostly because of our location. But then again, it our location that sets us apart from the other resorts with its panoramic view of the Mandovi river and the Arabian Sea. We have noted your observation about the parking space and will certainly work towards being better organized. We look forward to welcoming you once again in the near future, for yet another memorable stay.

Firstly, this is not one of the beach resorts in GOA to choose from. Technically it is on a beach, but it is a river beach and the water in the river is dirty for swimming. This hotel must be for those who need to stay in Panjim for one reason or another.

Secondly, although this may be the best hotel in Panjim, it is about 12 years old and definitely does not feel as new and luxurious as it does on the photos. 12 years ago it must have been a good one, but now it does not feel equal to the newer 5* hotels in India.

I stayed here because I was had to stay in Goa for 3 days during the rainy season and so the beach did not matter, and this hotel offered a very good price.

The service throughout the stay was great, and restaurant service deserves a special praise (more on it below), but one incident did happen during the stay:

When I checked into the room, it was quite noisy outside because of the AC exhaust nearby, so on my request they promptly transferred me to another room, but that room had a slight but noticeable stench. So when I asked on the phone for a different room again they said “yes", but then instead a housekeeping guy came with a huge bottle of deodorant spray to “clean the room”. I said “No, thank you very much, I need a room without any artificial smell added to the existing bad smell". He spoke to a manager on the phone and said “ok". Then another guy, an electrician this time, came and said that he will "change the filter in the AC", because this smell is due to an old AC filter in the room. I felt that the reason was suspicious - but I thought, “ok, let him do it”. And I waited nearby. So the guy opened the access to the AC in the room - and guess what he did? He just put a terribly intense lemon deodorant right there, so in just a few seconds the room was filled with an overwhelming artificial lemon smell. I again spoke to the manager and then they finally transferred me to a normal room, without and smell or prominent outside noise. But the whole affair was a bit of a nuisance I must say.

On the upside I must say that executive chefs in the restaurant are very accommodating. While the guys dressed as cooks standing behind the counters knew exactly nothing about the dishes and could not help in any other way, just stood there for the warm bodies, the top chefs on my request cooked exactly what I wanted and the way I wanted: stir-fried (and not deep fried as was on the buffet) bhindi, tofu with vegetables, healthy brown rice (which is absent on the buffet) and fresh juice. And they did it all happily. So the restaurant deserves a credit.

We had stayed for the weekend during end of june with small baby and wife alongwith friends. Its Great hotel with fantastic service. Staff is very courteous and helpful. They attended to our needs for our baby.

The Chefs were always there to offer specially prepared dishes. The food spread is great and delicioua.

The location is good as its close to panjim city but The beach is nonexistent which is the only offside to this place but that is compensated by the infinity pool right adjacent to it.

This hotel has served as a landmark for our family reunion and celebrate our parents 50th marriage anniversary. We had booked 3 rooms for our stay and were fortunate to have good accommodation facing the beach front. The service was excellent with good food, huge gym and spa facilities. I will definitely recommend this hotel to my friends and tourist visitors. My parents always reminisce their stay in the hotel even though it has been more than a year. Swimming facility is really good.
