Surprisingly for a resort its inside the city, which means its not a great location for a resort! Travelling is easier, else all the resorts are a challenge if you do not have a ready transport available and expensive.

The hotel has an unimpressive facade, the decor is good, the rooms are spacious. The swimming pool is too small for comfort and unfortunately the hotel does not have a private beach. It has access to a public beach which tends to get crowded and its not sandy. The hotel has a good gym.

The view from the hotel is excellent, food was surprisingly average for a 5 star.

The ease of access to the city make this a good hotel to stay while on business.

Dear Guest

Greetings from the Goa Marriott Resort & Spa!

Our sincere gratitude for taking valuable time out to write a review about our resort and its services. We are glad you enjoyed the décor and spacious rooms, the gym and the excellent view. We would however like to apologize for being unable to meet your expectations with the façade , pool and the food. All beaches in Goa are public and yes can get quite crowded. We have noted your point about the food and our endeavour towards bettering the same is on. We do look forward to having you back with us in the near future, giving us another chance to WOW you with our services.

Best Regards,
Ranju Alex

No direct excess to beach. Has a beautiful spa and good gym. Very good oriental Resturant,but we were served non-veg by mistake during my first visit. If you looking to laze relax and enjoy the goa beach vibe, definitely not this property . My visit was during peak season and I felt they could make a better effort with better variety of fruit for breakfast and also do away with their processed juices and keep it fresh and wholesome during breakfast especially.

Dear Guest,

Greetings from the Goa Marriott Resort and Spa!

Thank you very much for taking the time to write about our hotel on this site. We are happy to note your positive comments as regards the spa, pool and Wan Hao, our Chinese restaurant. We have also made note of the lapses you encountered, as well as your comment regarding the quality of fruits and juices at breakfast, and shall use this feedback to ameliorate our services. Government regulations stipulate that beaches across the state are public property, hence no hotel can stake claim to a stretch of beach and call it a private beach, however, our hotel is the closest one can find in Goa to the water’s edge. We hope to have you stay with us again in the near future.

Warm Regards,
Ranju Alex,

A very nice property conveniently located just outside Panjim city. We were pampered by a great service for food, housekeeping and transport. We had a sea facing room that added to the experience. Hats off to the level of effort to the entire team for making our stay a memorable one...

Room Tip: Remember to ask for the room with view of the bay.

I stayed here for 3 nights with my wife and new born daughter on her first trip to goa and it was one of the best experiences we have had. Other than the beautiful property, the highpoint of this hotel is the staff. One of the most pleasant and personable staff we have come across. Simple things like welcoming my daughter with a cake in the room and offering to take care of her during our stay was very thoughtful. Their buffets are to die for especially the salads!! All the sous chefs, Vivek, Ashwin and another whose name i cannot recollect, were always present during the meals and were helpful enough to serve us our favourite salads even though it wasnt there on the menu. Sheryl at the front desk made our stay much more pleasant than we had imagined. Must stay place.

We had a wonderful stay at Goa with Marriott...Awesome view of beach from our bay facing room..believe me if in Goa stay in bay facing room with Marriott..nothing beats this view...This hotel offers you with the best of facilities,services,food and warm hospitality...
We enjoyed swimming in the pool just next to the sea shore...enjoyed spending our time on the pool side which gives you beautiful view of the shore..
Lastly the most important part of any trip is food and we loved the food a lott!!!Chefs in Marriott cater to your taste buds so well..that you cannot forget the taste of food...we loved the freshly baked cake of chef Suneetha, North Indian exotic Paratha(sprouts and cheese) by Chef Vivek,Mouth watering Chicken curry(goan style) by Chef Rajdeep Singh,
Offcourse wonderful homely khichdi prepared for my baby by Monish Ishtwal..
To sum it all we r lukin forward to another stay very soon...Thanks for making our stay wonderful...

Kudos to Marriott Goa for awesome stay. Rooms were very nice and comfortable. Internet was good. Stayed 3 nights during monsoon season so beaches were unswimmable.
Food: after eating at the buffet for 2 days, Vivek the chef took excellent care of us. He made us many meals off menu. It was great. Hats off to Vivek for giving us wonderful food.
We also were there for business and Ashwin, the head manager of the front area took excellent care of us, from getting us a board room as needed, helping us with travel, etc. I understand Ashwin has been moved around to different Marriotts as promotions and it shows why. He was great to us and very attentive to us.
Views were very scenic.
