The hotel is magnificent and we have never experienced such incredible service before. It was so lovely that it was hard to drag ourselves away from the hotel to go to the beaches. It was magnificent at the hotel and the service was very good.

I would recommend people for this hotel.

We stayed at the Hotel from 22nd October until28th October. The monsoon season had just finished and the busy season had not started. From the moment of our arrival by Hotel transport from the airport until departure we were treated as honoued guests--my expectations were exceeded and I have high expectations! We had a sea view de luxe room which was spacious and well looked after--fresh orchid flowers on fresh sheets every day. Breakfast was from a sumptuous buffet to suit all tastes. A choice of 4 restuarents for dinner--we chose the Lobster Shack which was a 'thatched' lean-to on the beach edge where fresh wet and shellfish was available in addition to a wider menu. Daytime activities such as archery, putting, cycling were available in addition to the pool. The spa treatments were a treat. All in all a very relaxing break with little to worry about!

We stayed at the Taj Exotica for three nights in October - the resort was practically empty at the time - only a dozen or so other guests. The hotel property was very well kept and clean - we never had any problems whatsoever with the staff - everyone we came across was very friendly and hospitable. We stayed in the basic "two double bed" rooms facing the sea on the ground floor. The room itself was clean - the air conditioning always worked for us and the room had a DVD player that played DVD's from all regions - so the kids got to watch the movies we brought. We were happy with everything in the room - the bathroom was clean and large - and the cleaning staff did a thorough job every day.
The pool was good for the kids - the pictures on the hotel website made the pools look a little bigger and nicer than they actually are - but the kids enjoyed them and they were clean. The kiddie pool is only 2 feet deep all around - so our 2 year old loved walking all around the pool on his own. The beach was also very nice and clean. We had a few people each day trying to sell us things along the beach - but once we said "no" they didn't bother us again. The Taj kept their portion of the beach very clean and there was a little recreation shack close by that offered jetskis and parasailing. The propery itself had four restaurants and the "Lobster Shack" along the beach. The Lobster Shack was the kids favorite - the food was very good there and I would recommend it. I don't really have any complaints about the Taj Exotica - everyone we came across was nice and everything - the beach, pool, and restaurants were all clean and well maintained.

This is a terrific place for honeymoon or romantic getaway. There is huge land with lots of things to do throughout the day. If you get the sea view room you can see the beach which is just 20 metres away. THe hotel has 5 restuarants and the food is just great in all of them.
This is luxury at its best and since we travelled Aussie dollars, it was well within the budget.
We went during the rainy season and all of the water sports acivities were shut - I would recommend between Oct to May although in the off season the place is desserted leaving the whole hotel for us to explore.
One drawback is the location - South Goa does not offer anything in terms of nightlife or anything else for that matter. So 4 days felt just about right.
I intend to go back here as often as possible - you forget about the rest of the world here in your little paradise
