Great breakfast buffet with many many choices. Ala carte menu was reasonably good. Lounge was great Didn't like the expensive quote of Rs 1600 for cab ride of ~ 10 km, when the comparable GoaMiles app was Rs 350

The hotel structure is not beautiful and poorly decorated. The is no beachside activity. The beach is something beyond the fence. For western visitors it is not what someone would imagine a sea side resort or town. Very little heritage of the cuisine from Portugal.

What an absolutely amazing experience we had at Taj Exotica! I flew in from dubai and My flight landed really early (5am), and the staff was kind enough to arrange a room for me to rest since our actual check in was at 3pm.. I was so relieved to get those few hours of sleep and not wait in the hotel lobby for our actual room. Big thanks to the staff, who are so friendly and helpful at all times.. special mention of Ujwal, Rashmita, Vishal, Vinay - everyone so professional, prompt and super helpful. This truly breaks or makes ur stay at any resort.. apart from this the property itself is gorgeous, clean , beautiful beach and great views! Perfect for unwinding for the relaxing holiday. Definitely my go to place, everytime I’m in Goa!
