    Superb

    This is without a doubt an excellent hotel, and that's fine. The rooms are not cheap to say the least. Please note: the rooms in the main building have been beautifully renovated, but those in the bungalows have not been yet. That makes a difference to the comfort offered. The staff is very good and service-oriented. All ingredients for a top holiday are present.

    The prices of foreign wines are absurd, 10 euros for a glass of European supermarket wine, that costs 5 euros per bottle in NL.

    Fabulous

    the place has a wonderful staff, good facilites and i have been staying here since 1998. it has maintained its reputation , but all the rooms need to be updated now and also the spa needs far better facilities.

    the italian speciality restaurant is very over priced and the food is not upto the price standards

    This hotel is set in beautifully managed grounds leading onto the sea front. The staff are very welll trained and they aim to ensure your stay meets all your expectations. The gourmet restarurant in the main hotel was top class. A truly beautiful well managed hotel.

    It is certainly one of the best hotels - very comfortable, staff is excellent, restourants propose a very delicious dishes. It is situated in a relatively big and beautiful park with a view to the sea.

    Fabulous

    - The extreme friendlyness and discreteness of the staff in the restaurants (special mention to Aidilit, extremely polite, serviable and discrete, who made our breakfast and lunch even more agreable). - The beautifull gardens - The golf course - The very professional SPA and staff of the SPA

    - The fact that there were not enough pool and beach sunbeds. This is a beach resort, but it was impossible to get a mattrass on the beach or on the grass near the beach. Staff who had to take care of the sunbeds was extremely unhelpfull and barely spoke english - There is no hotel taxi service. We wanted to go for a day trip and were referred to the taxi drivers at the entrance, who turned out to be liars and cheaters. They asked 3 times the price to take us from the hotel to Colva (10 min drive), than what we paid to go from the airport to the hotel (45 min drive). When we asked them to bring us to a motercycle renting shop, they lied and told us this was impossible in Benaulim. Afterwards it turned out that there is a motercycle renting company at 10 meters from the hotel, where we rented the motercycles. - The fact that the guests were not allowed to participate in the cricket match organized for Staff! It was a great show but the same should be organised for guests WITH staff members (so that there are enough players to play a match) - The price of the restaurants is really extremely high compared to other establishments in India

    Great rooms, location on beach, spacious layout of sunloungers around pool and in gardens. Food excellent in all restaurants

    Shame that no loungers allowed on the beach

    Good

    Beach and grounds are lovely. Staff is willing. The beach offers lots of entertainment...hotel is probably best for people in groups or with children.

    Tired furnishings, beds are hard and old. Does not feel sumptuous and luxurious. Food offerings are not terrific.

    Great room service with good attitude. Although speed of service could be improved!

    Italian restaurant service is very slow and our kids got sick. GM made our entire check complimentry by 2 days out of our 4 days vacation in Goa got ruined!

    Responsive and friendly staff , good holiday destination , Amazing surroundings and a wonderful beach .. Though I had booked a twin bed room, Taj upgraded my room to a king bed considering that there were 2 young children with us. This courtesy really touched me..

    From start to the end of our holiday at the taj exotica it was an overwhelming experience.The staff are very professional and went out of their way to make our stay an enjoyable one.We were very happy with our room and we were given a king room because one was available without any extra charge also received a complimentary pick-up from airport. I am glad I chose Taj exotica. The beach is fantastic not crowed at all.
