                              Absolutely fantastic. Everything was top notch.

                              Nothing. I am usually a tough hotel critic, but I have nothing bad to say about the taj

                              Excellent in everyway possible! Taj Hotels world over are known for their hospitality and Taj Exotica was no different. The word 'No' doesn't exist in their dictionary and our every request was taken care of. Excellent location, well maintained lawns and gardens, superb restaurants and gourmet food, excellent luxury room with sea views and dream bathroom with Jacuzzi! The complimentary breakfast spread was out of this world! The range of food items was vast with pan Indian breakfast spread and continental spread! All of their 5 restaurants were superb and we always had some or the other food item/dessert complimentary with personal input abd feedback from the chefs! We stayed for 6 days and we thorougly enjoyed our stay and we plan to stay in the same hotel in our next Goa visit! Special mention of Sr Soup Chef of Li-Bai for the delicious chinese meal and experience, Mr Narayan Das-manager of Lobster Shack for his personal attention and help, Vishrut and Saurabh at Reception for their help and allowing us to stay beyond our check out time and making our stay comfortable! All the staff of Taj Exotica who were very very curteous and helpful and always smiling and cheerful!

                              Wi-Fi was not complementary and very expensive!

                              You can always expect a wonderful service at any Taj Hotels which makes a holiday most enjoyable.

                              Nothing at all, well maybe the price of a gin and tonic!

                              Outstanding beach. The Lobster Shack restaurant and in-room dining are fantastic.

                              Breakfast service is chaotic (but the food is good).
