great place for family, in hear of city but isolated and wooded. Great restaurant and food. Staff was cordial and helpful. Don't miss the free boat evening cruise

I loved staying here, they had a free sunset cruise (Small boat). I enjoyed and they had free breakfast.

Very good service from the staff. Gave me a free upgrade to the suite room. Food is on the expensive side. No free WiFi. Mildew smell on the 5th floor was bad.

The "Gateway" hotels are a definine step down from the traditional Taj experience. This hotel would be considered a three star hotel by international standards at best. Breakfast buffet is absolutely terrible: full of stale bakery goods and very odd food choices that should not typically served for breakfast. The only thing somewhat good was the south indian items. Aside from the buffet, the other restaurants and bar are about average (Bubbles is a good spot for a casual dinner). Room was well appointed and clean overal, service was disjointed. Some staff members were very good, some were inept. Concierge lady almost send my wife and I on a dangerous trip on a late night ferry to the Taj Malabar until one of the doorman intervened. Dry cleaning ruined one of my shirts, but did a good job making amends. Gym is ridiculously small. Overall, a convienient place to stay for and accetable as long as the price is below $150USD.

Excellent stay, wonderful staff, great meal. Food and staff comes with a top star rating. More than worth my money

I would recomend this hotel for business travellers, If you are on a vacation this may not be the location you want to stay in.

The Gateway took care of every need before we expressed them. Great vacation - relaxed, ate a lot everyday (every meal was super), shopped, went sight-seeing etc. Both of us had a wonderful time from 12/12/2008 to 12/20/2008. We plan to go back in June 2009. Ocean view rooms add to the charm of the vacation!!
