Reviewed 5 March 2014

I stayed in Marriott last year and some how missed reviewing it. The good part is that I clearly remember my stay given that the the customer service was so good. I stayed in a garden facing room (clearly not a good choice) but the room was very plush. I have stayed in Leela Goa and Taj Holiday village and I must say that the room at Marriott was better than Taj (but not better than Leela - only in terms of space). It had 2 beds (queen size) so it you are traveling with kids, this is the best option for you. The swimming pool is much bigger that what it looks in the photos and a lot of people in the pool would also not be discourage you from jumping right into it. (however the pool changing rooms was not good and lacked hygiene, and lotions and shampoos as well). The one thing that really stands out in Marriott is the food. It was far better than Leela and Taj (Holiday village) both. The service in the restaurant was excellent. Even though there was a medical conference at the time I stayed, I rarely had to wait for a table or for food. I would like to highlight that my wife had a bad experience in the beauty parlour and the service levels were very poor.

The hotel has an excellent gym for all the fitness buffs and not to forget the children's room which can keep children busy for a long time. The hotel is facing a bay and not a beach so the travelers should keep that in mind. Nevertheless the views from the room are very good (I visited on of them). If the booking does not include a airport pickup, you will have to pay for it so be careful to include that while making a booking

In fact I am traveling again to Goa in May and I am booked in the same hotel (in the bay view facing room).

Room Tip: Take a bay view room. The difference in price is not much.

The poolside restaurant offers the best seafood to be found anywhere. Our waiter, Akash was beyond nice the point that we felt sorry when we had to leave the hotel. He made our stay so wonderful and welcoming. We would return to this hotel simply because of the service which was absolutely great. The weather in early March was glorious. Sunny everyday with a mild warm breeze. If you are looking for great food and wonderful staff, this is the place for you! Thank you Akash for making our stay so special!

came on biz, People make this place along with fresh fish and crabs at pool side restaurant.
Dont get nails done, takes forever and not that great.

Akash, out server for the week is the most amazing person, heart of gold.

I hope they take care of him very well. All the guys at the pool along with the hotel manager are awesome.

I would only say that they have a hard time telling the rug rats at the pool and their parents to be respectful of others. Other than that, amazing

Room Tip: Dont stay close to lobby, noisy

I highly recommend this hotel if you looking for a peaceful holiday. I found the customer service was excellent. Speak to Ms. Deirdre, or Ms. Pooja, or simply ask Chef Manish to cook up something delicious. The whole staff experience is superb. Even the rooms and swimming pool were fantastic. I will go there again.

Room Tip: Talk to Chef Manish about your taste buds :)

A very comfortable hotel. Excellent service . Great view from the sea facing rooms. However those looking for a resort ( read kids/teenagers) would be alittle let down. The adjoining beach is not clean. The pool a bit smal. But overall a great place to spend a few nights.

Our team genuinely appreciates this impressive review, especially your mention of our very comfortable hotel and excellent service. However, we sincerely apologise for not being able to meet your expectations with reference to the beach, though we carry out periodic maintenance daily, it is a thoroughfare of sorts as it is a public area. Our sincere gratitude for your recommendation and we do look forward to welcoming you back on another memorable stay.

It is what you pay for - luxury! The lobby is amazing with a nice view to the pool and the sea. The pool area is really nice with the sea being so close there.
The food in the restaurants is good as you would expect it to be. The breakfast buffet is huge and they definitely have something for everyone there.

There is no free wifi which is weird but I've understood this is common Marriott policy.

The hotel is about 5-10 minutes taxi drive from the Panjim city center. Very easy to walk also, takes about 25 minutes.

If yo dont want to go to town, try Mum's Kitchen near the hotel (5 min valk). It's a bit pricey but rewarded restaurant with delicious food. And if you are hungry for pizza, Edu's Pizza right next to Mum's Kitchen make decent pizzas that cost nothing really.

If you happen to come here for the new year, DO NOT MISS THE NEW YEAR'S EVE PARTY! t was truly amazing!
