Absolute Bliss.
Right from the time of reception at airport to Check-in we were made to feel like a VIP. The room was spacious and beautiful. The recreational facilities, food, pool , beach absolutely loved everything about the resort.The sunset views were absolutely breathtaking. But one thing that stood apart was the service. Taj makes you feel like a King.The staff always ready to help with a smile on their face . Didn't feel like stepping out of the resort for 4 days of our stay. Truly a 10/10 stay . Would definitely visit again.

Extremely satisfying experience
This was my first experience at Taj Exotica and it is one of the most memorable experiences till date. My family enjoyed every moment they spent at Exotica. The food was delicious and the variety which was on offer for buffet was one of the best. I really relished on the tastey and sumptuous food at the hotel. The Taj Kids was another place which was really gave an engrossing experience to my kids. The gym was excellent with variety of equipment placed to exercise. The lobby is beautiful and huge. Last but not the least, the staff. I found the staff very courteous, be it restaurant, kids area or the pool staff, everyone ensured that we were comfortable at all times. The manager, Vincent, was very responsive and attentive. A complete family holiday destination. In the end i will say that this experience has further enhanced my belief in Taj group of hotels that it will never disappoint. I am returning for sure. Thank you.

Great location, but not so great in off peak season
Taj is known for its amazing property and great hospitality. It is always a great experience to stay at Taj. However, this time, my stay was in off peak season and at South Goa. I am not sure what was the factor, but this time my stay was just ok. Only two restaurants were operational, very less staff was available, the corridors were dusty and it was just meh. Having said that, the restaurants which were operational served superb food and we're quite lively. Also the swimming pool area and the kids activities were superb. Would want to return to Taj Exotica in peak season but I think I will still go to holiday village as that experience was way better!

Hospitality at its best
The hospitality that we get in Taj is just too amazing and cannot be compared to anyother hotel in the world. Few people who made our stay very comfortable are "Mr. Manna, Mr. Vikram & Mr. Elvin". Though all ur staff are excellent and leave no stone unturned to satisfy their customers but these 3 people made us more comfortable and privileged.
