We took a garden view room as that suited our budget. Unfortunately no upgrades given :(
The rooms were excellent. I have stayed in Marriot all over the world and this was is at par with any other Marriot.
Nice view of the beach. Unfortunately the beach is not fit for swimming.
The pool was very well maintained and made up for the beach. You can see the beach from the pool. The food was amazing.
They had a kids room and care taker to take care of the kids. So if your kid is 4 or above, can enjoy of their own. Very nice and friendly staff.
Over ambiance was amazing. Would highly recommend people.

Dear Guest, Greetings from the Goa Marriott Resort & Spa! Thank you for your appreciation of the hotel overall, the food, kids room and the staff service. Although we are known to have the most stunning sea view, it is advisable not to swim as a result of the strong undercurrents. However Goa has a long coastline and there are other options nearby where it is safer to swim. Thank you once again for taking the time out to recommend us and we look forward to being of service again. Best Regards, The Goa Marriott Resort & Spa Team.

Stayed for 3 days - couple with 16 month baby. First the good things - Chef Manish needs special mention for being diligent & attentive. Shailendra also needs appreciation. The bay view patio room we stayed in was very good especially since it opened on to a small green and overlooked the sea. Now things to improve upon - cant manage large crowd (breakfast at 10 am was cacophony - from next day started coming at 8 am), chicken and pork sausage tags were interchanged. Wanted no onion no garlic paratha - when asked about whether pickle was w/o onion garlic - the steward replied he doesn't know! Needed sterilisation of feeding bottles - was pretty slow, once what we gave in the evening came next day morning after follow up. Concierge took 20 min to come to pick up bags - finally did it myself. Lastly, my son puked on the way to the airport - the car was not spoilt except for 2 very small spots. The driver was very helpful - and he 'mentioned' that he will have to take he car back from the airport and get it cleaned since there could be some smell (to my mind there was none). He discreetly mentioned it would cost Rs.300! Even though he was more than adequately compensated - it wasn't what I expected.

Overall a moderate experience - could have been better with more people like Chef Manish and Shailendra

This is our fifth stay at this Marriott(which we love); we are members of the rewards scheme. Not sure what benefits there really are to this as none of our preferences seem to get passed on to the hotels themselves. What I find difficult to understand is how they can't get the booking right; we make very sure that our travel agent books a twin room (my husband snores); nearly every time we are told that the travel agent has not informed them of any request and that they have no note that we are returning guests or reward members; no one ever says welcome back etc, I don't think that this is asking to much. I am writing this while waiting to move room so a wasted first day and as we are from a snowy Scotland I need all the sunshine I can get. Very disappointed and don't feel 'Rewarded' at all.

Goa Marriott is a not so huge property located near Miramar beach, Panaji. Property is compact, well maintained and very organized. The view from the lobby is breathtakingly beautiful.

Service standards are awesome. Not come across any better anywhere else. Tough to beat. Breakfast buffet is very fulfilling and something to look for before going to bed..;-) Food is tasty, plenty of options and the chef is accommodating.

The swimming pool is narrow but long. It kind of makes one feel close to the sea (actually the confluence of the Mandovi river).

The beach is non-existent and whatever is present is dirty, muddy and not at all enticing. For that matter, Miramar beach is not at all suitable for swimming. So, those looking out for a smashing beach could be in for a disappointment.

Staff is always smiling, helpful and eager. They just do not seem to tire, no matter how many time one reaches for them. unheard of in the Indian service industry.

All in all, felt sad leaving the place. Cheers.

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
