Great stay, highly recommend!
I had a fantastic stay at the Taj Exotica, would highly recommend going back there. I stayed in one of the newly renovated pool villas and I strongly recommend that room as the room was large, completely modern in its amenities, and having a private pool facing the golf course and beach made me not even want to leave the room and step onto the other parts of the resort. Apparently all the pool villas will be renovated in the coming months making the resort look and feel quite new. As per the resort itself, the breakfast was large and expansive, the number of activities provided on the resort allow one to easily fill up a day, and having access to the beach allows for cheap access to some of the local beach shacks that charge a fraction of what food and beverage would cost inside the hotel. If you do want to leave the resort other than by foot, it may cost you a bit as hotel taxis are the main way of getting around and other call taxis do not want to come into the hotel due to restrictions in place by the local taxis that service the hotel.

Wonderful Service!
I was very impressed by the service at the Taj Exotica. Everyone was extremely accommodating, and our comfort was their priority. The pool area was very nice, and the staff helps you find chairs according to your specifications. However, I wish the hotel provided chairs and umbrellas on the beach. There are chairs and umbrellas overlooking the beach, but they are behind a metal fence. I also took advantage of the spa, Jiva. I was pleasantly surprised by the reasonable prices (compared to the US) for a 5 star hotel. I enjoyed a facial and a body scrub, and both were extremely relaxing. Overall, I had a wonderful experience at this property, and the credit goes to the staff.

A class act!
We had a wonderful stay at the Taj Exotica. The service was impeccable and the property was very well maintained. The beach was very clean and not at all crowded. The only downside was the food - it was overpriced and not that good. We were forced to look for restaurants outside just like other guests. As a result, the resstaurants were deserted in the evenings.

November at Taj Exotica goa
I think Taj Exotica is one of the top hotels in Goa. Its location is in south goa and located on a stretch of a very long beach. The hotel security is very tight. Even though there is construction going on in the hotel area, the workers are managed well and you don't see many of them. The food is expensive, especially the Italian restaurant and the Eugane which offers 24 hr service. I think the food is not good value for the money. Definetly try their east indian specialty foods: masala, currey, seafoods.yamiii... have a nice time on the white sands of the Benaulim beach. Also crowd was mostly over 50 year olds. A few couples with kids. Not many singles. The wheather is hot in the mornings and cool at nights. Expect mosquito bites. Great pool area. Great staff specially security team. Expect to pay tips alotttt.. bugey service is fast. The hotel grounds are huge for goa. Didn't like the guys at the reception but the ladies are very polite. Overall you expect to recieve this kind of service when paying 500 usd + for a room/ suite per night. Cheers
