Fantastic stay at the Goa Marriott over Christmas 2011 and New Year 2012.
The staff are fantastic and go all out to help in any way.
The hotel is central for North and South activities - with the help of the exceptional taxi drivers employed by the hotel.
Only one suggestion and that would be to try and keep families with young children in one area/wing of rooms - just so that any problems with noise can be less frustrating for guests without children. Not all children are noisy we know, but there were a few who we had to ask to keep the noise down at 2am or worse.
Otherwise a highly recommended place.

This is the 4th visit at Christmas time and each stay has been more pleasant than the previous one. The hotel remodeled (since my first trip). The lobby and rooms do not have the "beachy" atmosphere any longer but it is still very nice. This year, stayed in a bay view patio room and that made it more special since there was no need to walk the halls to an elevator to get outside. The food is excellent. The breakfast buffet is great with an amazing number of choices (but the service can be a little bit erratic when full). This year I was able to indulge in the Christmas Eve Night and Christmas Day buffets...outstanding. The staff is extremely friendly and all are anxious to assist in any way possible. The casino is extremely small and the slot machines are too tight (but fun anyway). There is a small charge to enter the casino (but this is a government regulation, not the hotels choice). It is my hope to continue the tradition of spending the Christmas season in Goa and this hotel will definitely be may choice. You cannot go wrong with this hotel. (If you plan to stay here during Christmas thru New Years, get your reservation early. It is a very popular spot.)

The rooms were beautiful and comfortable with outstanding beach sunset views. The complimentary breakfasts were like nothing we had ever seen - omelet bar, Indian food options, all hot and cold cereals, amazing fruit, yogurts, drinks and pastries - all with amazing service. We stayed over the Christmas holidays and attended the Christmas Eve party at the hotel and danced and ate late into the night. I hate to admit the we never went to the beach to swim (the pools were great), but it was great for walks and sunsets. Highly recommend this hotel!

If one just wants to relax and not hit the beach, then this is a great place. One can just sit by the pool side, eat, drink and enjoy the scenic bay view. It is very relaxing. However you want to be on the beach, then this hotel will not provide that. The little beach that is attached to this is nto clean and I really won't call it a beach either. It is a point for folks to get onboard a little boat to go fishing. If you are in Goa to just eat and relax, then request a room with bay view and a balcony. The food is average and then that is true for almost all the hotels and resorts in Goa. However snacks and finger food is good. Couple times I had to tell the restaurant folks about the food quality and immediately the head chef showed up seeking feedback and what can be done to make the food better and next day he came by to ask for feedback again. My suggestion to them is to have good North Indian and South Indian for breakfast. When we asked someone at the hotel for a recommendation for a good Chinese place, they recommended a place nearby that delivers and did not recommend their in-house Chinese. So if you like Chinese food, then stick with the restaurant named Pan-Asia Bowl - their food was very good and they deliver within 45 minutes and have decent sized portions. There is a Azur Bar and Lounge and for Elite members this works out perfect - free tea, coffee, and soft drinks all day long. In the evening they have couple appetizers that are complimentary. However given that this is a resort I was expecting more variety than a typical Marriott but it is was totally opposite. Also the service there was slow in terms of refilling. Overall a decent exp because we were there to just sit back and relax and did not want to hit any beaches.

Room Tip: Ask for a bay view room with balcony or patio.

Again one of the finest luxury hotels in Goa, that too in Panjim, Marriott is a great place for a cool stay. The river view from the balcony of the rooms are a pleasure to watch with the morning or evening tea. The rooms r finely done interiors and services are also satisfactory. U can expect a fine time here with family or friends whoever u r accompanying with. The buffet breakfast is indeed a feast for the tummy with great choices of continental and indian food.

I went to Goa Marriott Resort & Spa in July so it was raining cats and dogs in Goa, which to some extent rules out outdoor attractions so i got to spend a lot of time in the Hotel itself.
The resort lies at the secluded edge of the Miramar beach offering stunning views of the Arabian Sea. Located in the heart of Panaji.
Goa Marriott Resort & Spa has its own digital casino and is a nice place for some nice small stakes fun betting.
Their restaurant offers a vast variety of options in their lunch menu but the numerous gorgeous looking sweet-dishes are difficult to choose from and a heaven for the sweet-tooth! The restaurant does have some local Goan foods on their A-la-Cart Menu, but sadly the 7-Star Hotel's chef's have not mastered the local Goan delicacies and i would not recommend ordering them to the guests.

Other than that the stay was very comfortable and the spic-and-span cleanliness gives a good feeling to the guests. Last but not the least, the staff was very helpful and held the guests' needs on highest priority.

Overall, a great stay, a great experience.

We have so enjoyed our week here at the Goa Marriott. The rooms are great, the pool is wonderful but best of all the staff here has been amazing!!! From the moment we arrived we were treated with the best service. Everyone here has been happy to do whatever they can to make our days even more enjoyable. No detail has been overlooked - from the crisp, bright white uniforms, to the sparkling clean hallways, to the genuine smile you receive from all who work here. Never have I stayed at a property that is SO on top of everything. I would recommend this Marriott 1000 times over!!!
