Recent guest reviews
Was here for my birthday weekend and had a great time. The property is beautiful, lush green and so serene and best part is the close access to the beach. It’s almost like a private beach for this hotel. The staff is very warm and friendly. They take care of your every need. I was pleasantly surprised on my birthday when the room was decorated with balloons and flowers and there was a chocolate cake and yummy sweets kept for me. The housekeeping staff also kept a cute card for me. Would specially like to mention Laltu for his excellent service and for always serving with a smile. Enjoyed my three days here. Will come back again for sure :)
As expected it was an amazing holiday. Ranging from welcome to check out it was an excellent experience. The rooms were very good with a very beautiful view. The resort in itself is very beautiful and lives up to its name and reputation. The facilities are great and both the families had a very comfortable stay and a memorable vacation. Special thanks to Mr. Derek, Rakesh, Akshhat from the dining and also Chef Rakesh and Chef Anil who took very good care of us. There are wonderful facilities for children including the play area etc and of course the nice beach. Not to miss out on the location of the reosrt which given u an edge to go for a walk in the market and nearby areas.
There are holidays and then there are holidays. Our trip to Taj holiday village falls in the second category. From the time of pick up itself the mood is set. A professional pick up service, a charming welcome, quick check-in and the drive to your cottage in the buggy amidst the well maintained lawns and greenery immediately relaxes you. The whole place radiates positive vibes. We enjoyed our long walks in the property, amazing spreads at Carvela restaurant and gorgeous sunsets. All the staff were polite and helpful. The housekeeping team Mr Navnat, Mr Laltu were ready to help with any requirement. The food at Carvela restaurant was served with love. Sous chef Rakesh and team deserve kudos. A big thank you for sending a delicious chocolate cake for my dad on father's day. There are many 5 star hotels in Goa but Taj holiday village is the one with a heart, the one with an invisible X factor which takes a holiday from wonderful to absolutely great.
THV is definitely way better than lot of other hotels in Goa, they were organized in picking us up, good room, good food, good location etc etc.. If this is someone's only or first Taj then they will be delighted. My recent memory of a Taj is of Taj Bekal last September and it was an amazing one so when I visited THV, I was expecting a similar experience.THV is a generic huge property with good entry level/junior staff but misses "Taj" touch that I can cherish for life time. The property is quite busy but they have more staffs than Bekal so I won't accept that as a reason. The staff in restaurants were good, Edna always had a smile when we meet her. The junior staffs apparently are more serious than the seniors about upholding Taj's brand value. I'm a TIC gold so during checkin, I asked front desk for using my upgrade vouchers but it never happened because they had system issues, cannot contact TIC on Sunday etc etc and no one followed up on it as well. There were numerous chefs in Caravela during lunch and dinner but none walked up the guests asking for feedback or just having a conversation. I understand breakfast is busy but lunch/dinner were not that crowded. During Sunday dinner I witnessed a chef and a waiter arguing in front of guests, on Monday when my wife complained about cold panner and asked for it to be heated the chef (who was anyways ideal) did it with a frown. I approached the front desk to redeem few gift cards twice but both the times they defferred doing it with some reasons and now I have misplaced a 10k INR gift card ( in Bekal I had to walk up just once). I can keep going but I think I have made my point. Again this is not a bad hotel at all, a good hotel but definitely not my favourite one and I won't be returning.
Taj vilage Goa I had visited the Hotel awesome location candolim beach. great hospitality and lovely restaurants. Staff is also very courteous. House keeping guy very friendly Mr Laltu Roy.Bhushan.Anita and Nitya Help full guys. would love to return.
Overall the stay is good and kids enjoyed thoroughly. It was a Family event and made best use of the place . Good swimming pool / Awesome food along with variety of Breakfast which was mouthwatering. Good location of the Restaurant which open to the Ocean which every one would love too.
As expected, the hotel offers great Taj experience! wholeheartedly recommend the property. Positives: - Fabulous, spacious rooms - Great staff - Very nice swimming pool - Lots of nice walking spaces throughout the property - Dedicated play area/activity zone for kids with dedicated staff to take care of them (this is a HUGE PLUS for people with kids) - Quick access to the beach - Scenic, beach facing restaurant and walking areas - Can use the features and facilities of the sister Taj property (Taj Fort Aguada), which is nearby - Free pick and drop to Taj Fort Aguada - Carts available inside the property - Complimentary airport pick and drop available in mini buses (this itself saves more than 2k) Tip: Food is a bit expensive (obviously). Would recommend taking rooms inclusive of food if available. But overall, go for it if the pocket allows! Please vote YES if you found the review useful.
Taj holiday is exactly what you expect from a Taj hotel/resort. Extremely courteous staff, superb location, an out of the world culinary experience and a lot of pampering. I would recommend anyone who is thinking about spending their time there... not to think again and just make your reservation. Chef Sahil and Caravella staff particularly Rakesh and Devanand will take your dining experience to another level. A word of advice though.... Stay away from Taj fort Aguada... they are exact opposite of whatever I have written about Holiday village. Confused and frankly insensitive staff, poor service and they will make sure your experience is ruined. Special mention for Taj FORT aguada chef/sous Chef Amit... who made our brief breakfast bearable and showing the proper courtesy Taj hotels are famous for!
It was amazing stay, location. Special thanks to Gangaram,Sadashiv,Anita and Injamul,,the house keeping boys to make my birthday special by decorating my room beautifully... Most memorable stay.. Special thanks to executive chef Mr.Desai for making the needed dishes on special request... Activity manager Mr. Krishna for taking special care and giving attention to children.
Taj is the bestest property in North Goa. Food, hospitality, services, its private beach, pool, play area, rooms, everything is amazing. It was a wonderful experience as always. Chef Somnath Singh Rakesh, Edina, Sunil, Devanand from Caravela, Dattaram and Ranjit the buggy drivers, Anil and Gangaram from housekeeping, Devan from front desk. The staff is super helpful and great at hospitality.Thankyou guys for making us comfortable in every aspect. Thankyou till we meet again. See you soon..!!! 😊😊
