    It’s a beautiful location, well laid out hotel, with all the comforts and amenities. Service in the restaurants is sometimes a bit slow. One definite exception is Ms Passang. She was quick energetic, very pleasant and made excellent food suggestions. Another request i would like to make. I understand that this is a 5 star hotel and guests like to experience the luxury. However in view of the environmental impact we hope the hotel can be a bit more aware and reactive than automatic. Housekeeping staff should also be so advised. A) Put glass bottles with filtered water in the rooms instead of plastic bottles. b) add/ replace towels and linnen only at the request of guests not automatically. These are small changes that can help us reduce our impact on the environment even as we enjoy a comfortable stay. At the end of the stay, despite not using the first ones we had a collection of 9 unopened Bisleri water bottles and 3 bath towels. Thanks

    Phenomenal stay!

    What an amazing stay. The service was superb, the room was superb, the location was superb. Special mention of Favioe, the chef at breakfast. I had asked him for a Ross omelet one morning and he did not have the right ingredients then. The next morning, he got everything together and served it for me, even though it was not on the menu options for their buffet! This is the kind of service that bumps a stay from good to exceptional!!

    The property is beautiful and well-run. The beach is surprisingly pristine. The restaurants were the only disappointing thing, with very slow service, harsh lighting, and mediocre food. But that was really the only possible complaint. Truly a lovely property.

    Taj Village Resot, Goa: Never again

    WILL NEVER STAY IN A TAJ HOTEL AGAIN My stay in Taj Village Goa for 2 nights on 28th & 29th Aug,2019 was a horrible experience.We booked a room for 4 adults as advertised and got a room in which 3 could not fit without an extra bed being put in. In our view this is " cheating and misleading a customer". Being an NRI for 26 years and having stayed in premium properties all over I certainly did not expect to be let down by " Taj". The standard SOP of offering a discount was not accepted by me as we were very uncomfortabe as a family of 3 including our daughter 16 years old.In fact I remember 13 years ago we were in a group of 2 famiies from Dubai and had the same experience. My friends who were a family of 4 "brought the house down" on the same issue and were upgraded. My wife and I did not want to create a scene but must say I will never stay at Taj ever again and will advise my friends and family to do the same."Taj" was associated with the TATA' s synonymous wih Trust and Reliability.....sadly lacking at Taj Village Goa.Not once did any staff member come up with a logical explanation on how 4 can fit into that room....or give us a room for 4---I woud love to see the GM of the Hotel + 3 adults stay in the room advertised for 4!!!!!....I guess once in a while an upset guest is acceptable to the management......Many hotel chains to choose from.... never Taj again Jaideep Mathur Anju Mathur Saumya J Mathur
