Reviewed February 24, 2014

Very beautiful Taj hotel, located at an amazing location with beautiful views.

Great looking rooms, sea-views, excellent pool and sit-out areas... good rooms & facilities as expected of any Taj!! Food is the typical 5 star variety...

The hotel has a lot of Goa in it... You can sit at the pool side and watch the Goan waters, shacks and have a great experience without going out of the hotel!!! That's the beauty of this place.

Rooms are clean and with great beds, facilities, et al...All these get a thumbs up for me.

However, am still one star short... The reason is that one expects nothing less than a great delightful experience at Taj (i dont care if it has a Vivanta added next to it)... Taj has to be par excellence... And one usually get that!! While the property delighted me, the people & their hospitality was not miles ahead of usual star properties... Nothing was done to make us feel great, beyond doing what is expected.

We stayed 3 nights - 2 nights by the pool, and 1 in the cottage. While the room by the pool was more expensive, the bathroom was in a condition fit for a 3 star hotel. Surprisingly, the cottage accomodation (perhaps because it was more recent) was in a much better condition. Regarding the service, even though the people were very nice they were not as efficient or proactive as you'd expect at a Hotel with this reputation - as if the beach spirit had infected them as well. Also, they did not seem to have received the same kind of training that the Taj personnel usually have.

In any event, a good, solid hotel with a remarkable situation overlooking the beach - just not up to other Taj standards.

3rd visit in 3 years. Really good hotel in a very nice position. Service is excellent – from the gardeners through to the management are helpful, friendly, efficient and professional. Excellent breakfast with plenty of choice. Great staff at the pool and the SFX Bar too. Had a slight problem with neighbours but management sorted this out very quickly and very professionally. Had a cottage room that was excellent and father in law had room in hotel that was fantastic. All in all – I think that this is a great hotel and this is built on the high standard of customer service that you get throughout the hotel. Planning my trip back

We stayed here over the New Year and had a great stay. The banquet dinner for all guests on New Years Eve at the top of the hill was excellent with every type of dish you can imagine and a generous free bar.

The good:
- Staff - can't say enough about the staff. They went above and beyond with any request we had and were fantastic
- Food: Everything we tried from the restaurants to room service to the NYE banquet was great.
- Pool and bar area: Very calm and relaxing area where the days past way too quickly

The bad:
- Not too many sun-loungers by the pool...you have to get in early to get one.
- The room felt a little small, out-dated and not very sound-proof.

Courteous staff, fabulous cottages/ suites, excellent food sums up this place. We stayed for 3 nights. My irritation with the initial goof up by reservation team was quickly replaced by wow of customer service. Loved this place and hoping to visit this place every year.
