Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities
Must say Taj always tries to do their best in hospitality, but it could have been better . This is our second stay in last 21/2 months but this time it was a stronger feeling that next time we should try some other resort . At breakfast time it is disaster galore with service effected drastically . The food was better than January but why can’t Taj up their taste in food with the resources they have . They need to have more chefs . Having said that we have never stayed anywhere but at Taj village or aguada since last 25 yrs in north Goa . Hope they take this feed back seriously and improve the outsourced taxis conditions and the money they charge for it along with in house facilities .

Disappointing 3 stars hotel experience
Was a bad stay especially because service was terrible; on Jan 1st we ordered a simple room service in the afternoon and after 1.5 h we still don't get our food and drinks. I had to change 3 times the room to have what I've required, ending up with a non renovated room which was just AVERAGE. breakfast was nothing great, mostly Indian. I felt like I'm a very local 3 star hotel property, very disappointing

Had a wonderful experience and stay
Had one of the best experiences at Taj Village. The supervisor, Sonu, at the restaurant was super and made the whole experience amazing. Sonu and Sunil gave us the best service and accommodated all our requests. We owe our experience to him and his team.
