“Very Attentive & Soo Kid Friendly!”
Reviewed January 20, 2013 via mobile

It was our first trip to Goa , with our 2 yr. old daughter and we were so impressed with the service and how kid friendly everything was at the resort . Our daughter has multiple food allergies and the chefs at all the restaurants ( even in room dining ) really went out of the way to accommodate her dietary needs. We will def. be back and we definitely recommend the Taj Exotica to all young families visiting Goa!! Excellent Experience !!

Our recent stay at the Taj Exotica was a family holiday with my wife and kids and the number of interesting activities that we encountered at the hotel were astoundingly innovative and not ones we have come across so far at other hotels and resorts.

Cricket Pitch - comes with an array of hotel staff to play with you if you are short on number of players for your game.

Football for kids and adults. Feeding exotic fish at the hotel pond for kids, kite flying pizza making to name a few.

The water sports at the beach are some of the best that you find in Goa. Easier and more serene view than some of the North Goa beaches.

Great food - specially the Italian restaurant at the lobby level as well as the Chinese restaurant next to the all day dining. Superb service across the resort with great consistency. Perfect place to stay if you are in South Goa.

Overall a great hotel that makes even a great place like Goa a lot more fun.

Room Tip: The Villas that come with the private plunge pool are the best (better than the higher category luxu...

Had a fantastic holiday. The property is a fantastic and the service superb. The room could do with some fixing - bathroom had seepage, electrical fixtures had signs of wear & tear. Breakfast spread though plenty was average in taste. The south indian fare could be improved and also the north indian fare. The highlight was the property and service. amazing that's it

Excellent service by the best hotel group of India. Truly cherished the time spent and would love to go for it again. This was the first time I have spent an experience with Taj Hotels and I have just no words to express my fun and refreshing days. Hope to have such more trips and get to stay in such divine places for a really long time.

This was our second visit to the Taj within 12 months, as we left we were already planning our next trip. The location is great, staff wonderful and always pleased to help. We were welcomed back as returning guests. Breakfast can be chaotic and the villas are in need of upgrading (esp the bathrooms). It would be great if the Lobster Shack did sundowner drinks - most guests go the beach shacks near by.
Other than breakfast we do not eat in the hotel - there are so many great places near by with great food and drinks at a fraction of the price.

My partner and I just came back from 6 days, 5 nights at the Taj Exotica.

We stayed in a garden view villa with a plunge pool and it was divine. No detail was left to chance - the room was cleaned as soon as we went to breakfast, and tidied again with the turn own service as we dined in the evening. Towels were left each morning for our pool, fresh fruit arrived daily, and we even received a cake on our last night.

We so needed a quiet time that we didn't leave the resort! My partner played golf and tried the archery, while I read, swam and napped. The plunge pool at the villa was huge but we also swam in the warm Arabian Sea and in the main pool.

The meals were all exquisite. The fresh fish was a treat, and my favourite was the tandoori shrimp - the chef has even emailed the recipe to us.

The staff smiled throughout, rushed around being as helpful as they could, and never said "no". It was really their warm smiles and helpful and positive attitude that made our stay. I would return to the Exotica, but this also makes me anxious to visit the other Taj properties!
