Recent guest reviews

Loved the ambience, service, food and rooms of Taj Exotica. The way everything was handled from Airport pickups to check-ins to keeping the kids engaged was just amazing. My whole family is looking forward to coming back in near future.

Highly recommended for the beautiful view and great food,lovely pools for kids and amazing landscape ,overall perfect for a family holiday destination who loves beaches and food .Only issue is stray Dogs at the lovely beach site which I guess can be looked at working with the authorities ..Beach is very clean and very near to the villa's

Exceptional hotel with probably the Customer Service that i have ever experienced in a phenomenal setting. Great choice of food. Great entertainment. The rooms are well separated to give plenty of privacy.

Taj Exotica is by far the best hotel in Goa. We stayed here last week in a Deluxe Sea View room. From the time we entered the property to the time we departed, we had an amazing experience made even special by always smiling and courteous staff. Special shout out to Melroy D'Souza, the Executive Chef. He meets people in the restaurant and ensures everything is taken care of and that we enjoy the food. Great spread during buffet. We just loved it. Chef even talked to our kids and prepared couple of special items for them. Kids and we loved the huge swimming pool, cycling rides, cricket, activities in the kids center, lot of other games, and the beach right next to it. Room is marvelous. Interiors, Ambience, Bathroom, View, and Attention to detail is excellent. I strongly recommend this hotel which is right by the sea with very friendly staff. We had a great time here.

The place is amazing, Taj stood by the promise the brand makes for hospitality. From our arrival (greeted by lovely musicians who welcomed us on our anniversary with the lovely tune of "na mango sona chandi" from the ovie Bobby) to the great view the room offered, wonderful hospitality everyone provided. Specially a great place for kids - lots of options to spend the day even if you are not willing to go outside. The access to private beach is great- definitely recommended een though the price is on the costlier side

Over all experience was the best and will always cherish the beautiful moments we had during our stay at taj goa. Would like to thank all the staff of Eugenia Restaurant. especially - Chef - Mr. Melroy. for his delicious cuisines. Rest Sevice Guys - Saiyesh, Jai, Clyde.

Also all the other staff who had made our stay a memorable one. Keep up the good work...... and looking forward to visit very soon. God bless u all. :-)

Me and my wife stay last month in here,was really beautiful from start ti till end.The rooms were super clean and of course the toilet as well.My wife loved the room I booked for us.Goa was our first trip and we enjoyed it completely and in the evening we had dinner only in the hotel,we couldn't eat outside as we loved the food in the hotel.

Great place to visit with kids. Lots of activities. Kids love to ride bicycles around the property. The kiddie pool has a slide which most kids will enjoy. Extremely courteous and friendly staff. Great food as well.

Had a great time in Taj exotica Goa, such a lovely and well maintained place to enjoy vacation. Very much clean place and up to the mark. The staff is very much helpful and always available when required. The staff including spa , restaurant, reception, pool attendees, in room dining , house keeping and a special thanks to "Baggi-staff" to provide us a ride till lobby or till restaurant whenever required . They gave us a warm welcome and arranged the lovely decore in the room. I would mainly like to thanks Mr. Salman (Duty Manager) for helping us right from our check in till check out. Mr. Amit and the restaurant manager of (lobsters Shacks ) sorry we forgot the name. They took a good care of us at the time of breakfast and lunch. I would like to thank the pillar of the property The general manager Mr. Ramos to give us such a leisure stay. He is very kind and lovely person we have ever met. Keep it up. We will definitely visit again.

I stayed here for ten days in October. It's a stunning complex, right by the sea, with a beautiful pool area. The complex is so big, that if you want to go to the main gate, the staff will offer to drive you there in a golf cart! The room I had was huge. Every day, the staff left us fresh fruit. By the end, we had to ask them to stop leaving it as we weren't getting through it fast enough. Food at the breakfast buffet was plentiful, with a range of Indian dishes and egg dishes and pancakes made to order. I really enjoyed the dosa, which I'd never eaten before. Benaulim is quite remote, and as a result you may feel like you want to stay in the hotel, but I'd encourage you to venture out and see the rest of Goa. Don't take the ridiculously overpriced taxis offered by the hotel. Walk a few steps out of the main gate and there are local taxis waiting, who will offer a journey at a fraction of the cost. The hotel food is delicious but, again, there are cheaper, equally tasty options available a short walk away from the hotel gates.
