Outstanding5.0 / 5
Excellent hotel.
Service at the Taj is awesome from the time you check in. Staff is very friendly and accommodating. Food and beverage is well presented. Room service order takers use your name and try to upsell. Would stay at the Taj the next time we visit.

Poor1.0 / 5
Extremely disappointing experience
It was extremely disappointing due to the following reasons. .. 1. Hotel foods not have our reservation in the computer system. .. it took them almost an hour to figure it out... we were very tired after 22 goes off journey. 2. They gave us the worst room, that too smoking room, while we ate allergic to smoking. 3. The room was very old and needed lot of repair. Clogged sink 4. They did not replenish all the amenities on the following day. 5. It was a nightmare to stay there. 6. We request for a full or partial refund.

Good3.0 / 5
Just ok
A grand pobby and good, even great food at both their Indian Nd Chinese restaurants. Breakfast buffet was superb. The room was nice but a bit worn and could do with a fresh coat of paint etc. Hallways look dated and tattered and are somewhat dark. Noise from outside and hallway permeates inside. Alow wifi. Evening turndown service. Great self service breakfast and drinks in the lobby. 45 minutes from airport and right by the Ocean

Outstanding5.0 / 5
Great Stay
Service was outstanding ... you couldn't even half think that you'd want anything before someone was checking to see if you needed anything. The pool was lovely, the beachfront location was great, The internet was slow at times, and you'd think that wifi would be free of charge in this day and age. Our stay was a pleasure from the minute we checked in to the minute we walked out.
