We stopped in this hotel for a week after stopping in Mumbai. The hotel is of a very good standard with good sized rooms and bathroom. The first time I've stopped in a room with a big window looking into the bathroom. It did have a blind to offer some privacy. This hotel offers 3 restaurants a Chinese a sea front fresh fish and a buffet that also offers an alacarte menue. The food in all was of a very good standard but restaurants lacked a little in atmosphere.

We pus chased the breakfast and evening happy hours package with orderves this was at a cost of 1500Rs per night for the two of us. This was very good value. The local wine was included in this which to our surprise was very good. If you purchase the wine buy the glass I think it was 900Rs so if you enjoy the wine it's good value. Also a huge bonus for us is that this is the fist hotel that we have stopped in that served breakfast until 11am most seem to serve until 10am which is always a bit of a rush for us on holiday.

The service here was excellent if not a little over attentive at times.

The only reason we didn't give this a 5 star rating is that there was a constant stream of wedding functions at the hotel. These were very noisey the traditional Indian wedding seemed to live very very loud music. This was played one afternoon as the wedding party had a pool party which did spoil things for other guests. The evening party's were also loud but did not go on late so weren't a major concern finished around 10:30pm.

Nice staff, delicious Indian and continental food, very good spa and massage, swimming pool and moreover it’s lobby with a breathtaking panoramic view of the river and the sea and joyful breeze make this hotel a pleasant place to stay and relax. It is about a 30-40Min walking distance from the city and it’s safe and easy to go and spend some evening there and to explore the city life.

Room Tip: rooms with sea view are recomeded

Check-in was efficient. Very helpful staff. Ms. Delilah and Mr. Sangket (hope the spellings are ok) were particularly nice throughout. In general, staff were all helpful. Only one area to be worked on is the training of staff around the pool area. We wanted buy a drink from the swim-up bar and sit by the pool and the bay (on the tables in between) after we checked out and right before we were leaving. They refused and said that drinks won't be served there before evening. I thought it wasn't a big deal and they ought to be more understanding of that).
We had booked a bayview room that was in the far end of the hotel. Room was well decorated and bathroom was very spacious. There was a nice balcony as well.
Restaurants were good. Food was not overpriced. Breakfst was very good with lot of choices and chef/staff coming out to enquire about experience.
Pool was by the river and decent-sized. There is a small beach adjacent which is nice to sit by. Surprisingly, there is no beach activity arranged by the Marriot (except that I was informed about a cruise tht is arranged through third party operator. We spent a few night before here in Baga, so it was ok for us, but I think an initiative should be taken to introduce some other activities as well.
Nice kid's zone both indoor and outdoor but time is limited to 9:00 p.m. meaning we couldnt avail it and leave our daughter to have dinner at around 10:00 p.m. The attendant appeared strict about the timing.
A true five-star property worth the value but still scopes for improvement in a couple of areas.

Room Tip: On the high floors near the elevators would be wise. Better if in the central section rather than th...

You know my favorite holidays in Goa have been the ones where I did nothing but just soaked in the atmosphere. The absolutely unhurried pace of life.
The trouble with most 5 star properties in Goa is that while they build a 5 star in Goa, they leave Goa out. Marriot is such a place. It ticks all the boxes, pool, bar, lounge, gym play area, restaurants a strip of the beach as well. Yet somehow it lacks the warmth and ease of Goa.
The rooms are clean , decent, food is nice, the play area surprisingly lacks attention, they have one or the other weddings happening at one time or the other. The three days I stayed there I could have been anywhere. May be it's too unlike the touristy north goa or the charming South Goa.

Room Tip: The rooms facing the sea, specially the ones on the south side.

The hotel is located on River banks and the sea view rooms give a good view of the river. But the beach has no water sports activity. The pool is large but dirty, The rooms are facing a dirty jungle where you see people peeing.

The rooms are huge but the management could not maintain it. My room was located very far from the lift, It takes about 5 mins for me to reach the lobby from my room, The property is huge but access is not made convenient to all the rooms. Property is like a Maze one cant find the way out easily.

The staff is unfriendly the lack of smile, lack of service, you ask for something and you probably will get in an hours time.

Aircons are not functioning properly, I complaint and the technician came in about half an hours time.

The only thing I loved about this hotel is location and I only found a courteous staff Mr. Manish who is a chef, He personally came to my table and asked for suggestion and few counter staff who are friendly other then that all the staff out there are very rude and lack of professionalism.

The worst concierge service I have ever seen, I was about to miss my flight because of the concierge manager who dint arrange my car on time and I was literally pleading and requesting to get the same arranged quickly.

Nonetheless,

Room Tip: go and stay there only if you have got a good deal online
