“Far-fetched hotel with beautiful layout”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

My holiday was the most memorable in Goa Marriott Resort. The Resort was extremely much unadulterated, great rooms, overall looked after, well disposed and supportive staffs, extraordinary place, great nourishment, superb utility, striking perspectives, entryway is the best place to sit and appreciate the view,good cordiality. The inn ignores a waterway which has expansive transport delivers cruising along it. Must visit again. Nibbled far from prevailing vacation spots yet area is extremely cool.

Marriott is one of the better properties in Goa and has a great view despite being in the middle of the city. The rooms are great and so is the breakfast, housekeeping, laundry and the limousine service, but where it fails miserably is in managing large groups of people.

We were there as part of an official offsite, and everything from the check in to the gala dinner were disorganised. It always took a while for the staff to come into action and some of them were also fairly rude to colleagues for lil things like a cup of tea!

The assigned account manager (Vikash) was missing in action completely with Karan trying very hard to salvage all sticky situations with his easy demeanor. (Thanks Karan, for the amazing effort).

Ordered one meal in the room, which was really bad (grilled chicken)...the chicken was rubbery and the special request vegetables under cooked. When I did pass the feedback on to Pradeep (I think), was told they could send me consolatory dessert! Never understand this about some hotels.

On checkout (Sathaye) was brusque and trying to rub in the obvious. (Return key must have been said at least thrice!). Infact did have to finally tell him that I had no intention to take it home! The wait for checkout was about 20 mins since there was some confusion on computers and which ones could be used.

Think what is missing in the property is heart -- most of the staff makes everything sound like a favour and the eagerness or almost paranoia to make sure that they say it all is scary. Could be one of the finest properties in Goa, if they get their service rigour right.

Room Tip: Pick a beach/river facing room only

Marriott is as good as it gets in Panaji... Nestled at the end of the City, this place is a hidden paradise, especially if you are looking for a calm and soothing stay
away from all the buzz of North Goa.
The room decor, service and the wow factor is at par with any Marriott in the world. The poolside grill is perfect for a romantic candle lit dinner with the cool sea
breeze always on your face.
One of the first things to do once you reach GOA is rent a bike and you can do that just right out of the hotel. Its a bit expensive due to its proximity to Marriott,
but still worth it, due to the fact that Public transport is non existent and Taxis and rickshaws are expensive.
Once you have a bike you really start appreciating the location. everything from BagaMarina to Dona-Paula to Bom-Jesus church is just a 20 min ride.
The fact that Casinos are just a 5 minute drive is a bonus since the in-house casino is not so good.
The breakfast commands a special mention. What makes it special is the fact that the staff go out of the way to serve you whatever customization you'd request.
All-in-all a great option if you're looking to make Panjim your base.
The only /issue in their impressive Armour is the in-house Casino, Minimum bets are too high, service is patchy, and the casino odds are higher, but the plethora of
options 5 mins away, sort of make up for it.

Room Tip: Talk them into getting a sea facing room

Access to the hotel is not great with poor signposting from the main road. The security was very tight which was assuring.
The main hotel lobby is very impressive with open views out to the river/ocean. The check in was very efficient with a cold Kingfisher which was just what was needed.
Rooms were fine but feel the bathroom will need a refurb soon, and the shower was a little complicated and took ages to get warm.
Not the biggest pool i have seen but more than adequate for the number of people that were using it, the service from the pool bar was very efficient, all the hotel staff were very friendly and seemed eager to please.
The SPA area was very nice too if not a tad on the expensive side for India.
A very enjoyable stay but may try the TAJ next time.

Room Tip: Rooms with patio are very nice.

Visited Goa in Aug 2012.
It was a family outing and we had total fun...
The kids loved the pool, miramar beach outside, the play room and the food - basically everything!
The room was good with a good view of the beach.
Pleasant and courteous staff....
Overall it was wonderful 3 days spent at Marriot and we'll always cherish the stay.
