Reviewed 10 December 2013

this property is more suitable for romantic couples. they do have a day care centre for children however it need to be expanded. the rooms are very comfortable but need to be modernized and refurbished. the staff is extremely courteous and helpful, the location is fabulous and the restaurants are non intimidating keeping with the casual air of Goa.Strongly recommended for couples who are on a romantic break.

Room Tip: Select a sea facing room or cottage.

Excellent location. All beaches are just a small drive away. Serene property with lush green surroundings. Hammocks outside the cottages perfect for lazing in the afternoon. The bar by the pool and the Thai food restaurant were definitely the high points of the stay. also, totally loved special birthday surprise with flowers and musicians organised by the hotel on my husband's request.

This is another lovely Taj hotel. We were recieved at the airport by the hotel's free shuttle service. The ride to the hotel was nearly an hour and a half as it is north of the airport and Goa traffic is such that you move along very slowly. Once we were there, the check in process was quick and we were shown to our rooms. The rooms are spacious and well appointed. Each villa had two rooms that offer complete privacy if you had both rooms. The hotel has a nice strip of beach and also a lovely pool. There are loungers on the beach that is free for hotel guests, but make sure you take a towel from the pool before you go down to the beach.
The breakfast at the hotel has a good variety and the food at the restaurants is very good but pricey. I would still recommend eating at the hotel instead of the beach shacks as the quality is good.
The location is bit away from city as well as Baga beach, which seems to the hub of tourist activity in north Goa. If it is a relaxed holiday you are looking for, then just chill at the hotel and enjoy the beach and pool. If you are looking for activity and night life, then you would have to Baga beach, which takes about 30 minutes. You could rent bikes or a car if you walk just outside the hotel and turn left, there is a Aguada Rentals where Mr.Kamat can rent you a bike for a great price. This is probably the best way to get around Goa and experience it.
We stayed three nights, and the first night there was a Indian conference group and they had a party with loud music that went late into the night and we could'nt sleep well. Other than that, the stay was great.

common sports facility between both hotels offer good recreation activity.. staff is extremely friendly as well.. standard room are neat and clean decent size..

After much excitement and creating chaos at both Mumbai and Goa airports, a series of luxury coaches transferred us to the sheer tranquility of Taj Village.
The fact that there was water for all on the coaches and even packets of Cashews, should have warned us of what lay ahead !!
We were welcomed by smiling staff, garlanded as revered guests and proffered fresh coconuts to quench our thirst .
This to the serenade of Gauntanamera !!!
While guests were ushered to lunch, possessions were smoothly transferred to our rooms, and this set the pattern for our 3 day wedding stay/ celebrations - no request was too ridiculous,, all executed with wide smiles.
Food was delicious, drinks potent and surrounding tranquil , .
Our only shortcoming was that not all rooms had full length mirrors, a dire necessity for trying to dress in Sarees for the wedding .
We were so impressed with the resort and services, would highly recommend the stay !

Room Tip: The cottages were absolutely worth the extra money

Pros:
1. Excellent location : If you want to enjoy Goan life, this is the place to be. The street outside this property is always full of life. Commercial beaches like Baga, Calungete is 15-20 minutes drive
2. Great Hospitality and Service : I was amazed that they how can they be so courteous each and every time and always ready to help. They always wanted to ensure that your stay is comfortable.
3. Great property : It is beautiful and kept well. If you do not want to go outside, you can relax within premises and will have lot of things to do. They provide next days planner well in advance.

Cons:
1. Food is on costlier side. However, that is not much of worry if you can go outside. There are great eateries within 5-10 minutes walk
2. I thought pathways should have been better lighted. The property is very densely populated with trees and shrubs. It gives you jungle feeling at night.

Room Tip: If possible choose options for sea facing rooms..

It was a very good stay at the Holiday Village, Goa. The hotel was full with a group of wedding guests, but still we got a good cottage with sea view. Everything was up to the mark as is with Taj. Only negative that we faced was the same kind of food in buffet on all days. We were there for 3 days and it was a package where all our meals were included. There was not much change in the menu. Also, being in goa, we would expect goan specialities, but other than a goan fish curry, there was nothing on the buffet.Another thing was, there was a cookery show for activities of the day. I called them regarding that. The lady said she would enquire and get back to me regarding that as they conduct it only if there are a specific number of participants. There was no call back.
