4 night stay for New Year after Taj Exotica Goa (see previous review) As a Club room guest in the Palace this was one of the best hotel experiences ever ( if very expensive!) Met at the airport by fully uniformed chaufeur in a new Mercedes. On arrival the car door opened by your private uniformed butler who greets you by name and whisks you direct to room where he conducts formalities. Champagne waiting , enourmous room and white marble bathrooom with every possible requirment provided. Amazing building, location, pool, shops and restaurants. Service second to none.
Some complaints however. As in Goa birds are a menace. If you have breakfast at the pool do not be suprised to have a crow fly to the back of chair and then pounce on your toast. Pigeons were nesting above the main doors from the lobby to the pool. Pigeons are vermin and not acceptable health wise. Also had problem with windows not closing properly which meant road noise. During our 4 day stay thes problems were compensated by 2 bottles of champagne and 2 bottles of red wine plus our last night was free due to rebuilding of suite next door.
