We just used the facility to stay one night. It was average.

3/5

  • Liked: Staff & service, amenities
  • Disliked: Property conditions & facilities

Some rooms are very dated. We had to change the first one we got as that was not acceptable for a 5 star property and definitely not expected from a Taj property.

Stayed 4 nights in Jan 2020

4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities

Our room was comfortable and had a great view of the sea . Staff were all helpful and courteous . The only unsatisfactory experience was the smell of sewage at times in the bathroom ! As we were there only for a short time , we didn’t want to make a fuss and change our room ( no 621) but the Maintenance dept in the hotel may want to sort it out for future guests .
