4/10 Fair

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!

Excellent stay at exotica
Very good stay. The hotel is very good and comfortable. My young daughter didn’t want to come back she thoroughly enjoyed the property. Food was the only downer a lil since I had opted for alacarte the menu was pretty avg. but once I brought the concern to the chef he personally made sure that he cooked special dishes for me so that was mitigated. The staff is very courteous and friendly and allowed late check out which was really good as I had a late flight. I recommend everyone having meals there to call the chef upfront and put your request. The stay was really good and I highly recommend. PS - the golf course is good recommend all to take coaching lesson.
