“Wonderful place”
Reviewed February 20, 2014

It is what you pay for - luxury! The lobby is amazing with a nice view to the pool and the sea. The pool area is really nice with the sea being so close there.
The food in the restaurants is good as you would expect it to be. The breakfast buffet is huge and they definitely have something for everyone there.

There is no free wifi which is weird but I've understood this is common Marriott policy.

The hotel is about 5-10 minutes taxi drive from the Panjim city center. Very easy to walk also, takes about 25 minutes.

If yo dont want to go to town, try Mum's Kitchen near the hotel (5 min valk). It's a bit pricey but rewarded restaurant with delicious food. And if you are hungry for pizza, Edu's Pizza right next to Mum's Kitchen make decent pizzas that cost nothing really.

If you happen to come here for the new year, DO NOT MISS THE NEW YEAR'S EVE PARTY! t was truly amazing!

When we checked into the Marriott we did not know it was going to be our residence for nearly 8 months (Feb thru Sept 2013). My beloved Scott was terminally ill and we needed a relaxing wheelchair-friendly "home away from home" for his final days. (Follow our story along with 1600+ other people at our blog: http://goingtogoa.wordpress.com). I personally researched several and the Marriott was the clear winner--location and amenities suited to our visit. Staying at a resort for a vacation vs. an extended stay such as ours gives one a different perspective. The hotel staff were so compassionate and caring during this difficult time. Elizabeth Shackleton (Guest Relations) was outstanding and embodies just the right balance of warmth and professionalism. She helped this American visitor handle many a daily mini-crisis and to navigate the Indian healthcare system as well. The team was expert at creating special events such as a birthday party for a bed-bound guest and an impromptu snack buffet for a press conference held in our rooms. The buffet spreads at breakfast and dinner had enough variety to keep me happy as the many months went on. The chefs were more than willing to work with us on Scott's special needs diet and to create anything I wanted that was not on the menu. Ours was a special situation and one that I will say was a lot less stressful because I made the right choice in hotel. Alex, the manager, was very gracious to us and we felt very safe and comfortable throughout our Going to Goa adventure.The hotel was in need of some updating and renovation which may have happened since our stay...but they appeared to be on top of maintenance constantly and the hotel is very well run. The only downside is that this is a popular wedding and party venue and there are noisy dance party boats that travel up and down the river but this just lends to the festive atmosphere which is why most people come to Goa in the first place. Namaste,
Katy (& Scott)

Best place in Panaji. Wonderful property. Clean pools, good rooms, good food and courteous staff.

The reception area and lobby at the entrance are beautiful. Pool side is the best place to spend evening.

Luxury at its best.

5 star accommodation with fabulous views of the sea with luxury rooms. The area is pretty rubbish and no where to walk to locally but if you are happy to stay in the hotel and use the facilities then it's a lovely place to be. The downside of the hotel was actually the other guests! There are a lot of wealthy Indians who stay here and treat the staff as their personal slaves and seem to think they do not have to consider any other guests with their loud and arrogant behaviour. They have a lot of weddings here this time of year and the guests are also not very pleasant either. Wifi is free but a little unreliable at times but staff are always willing to help. The staff are fabulous albeit they seem scared to upset any guests no matter what they do. The buffets were good and varied albeit lacking any 5 star specials (seafood or fish or chicken breast !) The vegetarian options were the best and indian food and eastern style dishes were very good. Breakfast was chaos most days and egg orders were a nightmare but seemed to get there eventually. The Sunday brunch is a expat event not to be missed! I was disappointed not to have the hotel taxi back to the airport that I paid for - instead of an outside taxi and only wished that the guests were as nice as the staff ! I did venture out to calangute which is like the benidorm of goa but was happy to return to my 5 star bubble at the marriott !

It was amazing.. Every aspect was commendable. Be it room service, hospitality, food and the ambiance. Well maintained and so Luxurious. The beach view is very delightful and you can access the beach with just a casual stroll down from the hotel. The bar along the pool gives you the royal feeling of having a drink seated in the pool and that's what its all about when you go to goa. They have a In-house casino makes sure that you don't have to go out of the hotel for anything. Staff's very friendly and helpful. the icing on the cake is the food which is just fantastic. i had a great time

it was a wonderful expenrience staying at such a beautiful place. the hotel is quite luxurious especially the big restaurent buffet which offers a huge huge huge variety of food. taste of the food is very good and the service n hospitality is excellent. but..….its not a beach resort, its a beach view hotel. you can only take stroll on its private beach but not go inside the water coz its not that clean, its basically a beach river n not a beach.

as far as location is concerned, its quite near to the main market n the famous casino royale in goa.you can easily rent a bike just outside the resort.convenence store is just walking distance away.

its quite far from the public beaches like bagha beach n kalangur beach. the only nearby public beach is miramar beach, which again is not a very good beach.

overall, i must say, great service, huge food variety, beautiful n serene, n in the city itself, but not a beach resort n quite far from good public beaches

Room Tip: try for a beach view room on the ground floor, they are amazing
