We stayed at the Taj Exotica for three nights in October - the resort was practically empty at the time - only a dozen or so other guests. The hotel property was very well kept and clean - we never had any problems whatsoever with the staff - everyone we came across was very friendly and hospitable. We stayed in the basic "two double bed" rooms facing the sea on the ground floor. The room itself was clean - the air conditioning always worked for us and the room had a DVD player that played DVD's from all regions - so the kids got to watch the movies we brought. We were happy with everything in the room - the bathroom was clean and large - and the cleaning staff did a thorough job every day.
The pool was good for the kids - the pictures on the hotel website made the pools look a little bigger and nicer than they actually are - but the kids enjoyed them and they were clean. The kiddie pool is only 2 feet deep all around - so our 2 year old loved walking all around the pool on his own. The beach was also very nice and clean. We had a few people each day trying to sell us things along the beach - but once we said "no" they didn't bother us again. The Taj kept their portion of the beach very clean and there was a little recreation shack close by that offered jetskis and parasailing. The propery itself had four restaurants and the "Lobster Shack" along the beach. The Lobster Shack was the kids favorite - the food was very good there and I would recommend it. I don't really have any complaints about the Taj Exotica - everyone we came across was nice and everything - the beach, pool, and restaurants were all clean and well maintained.
