I stayed 4 nights at the Vivanta by Taj, switched room for the last night to experience the sea side view which is a lot better than the other side...
Main feedback was that I think the hotel is understaffed and that the existing staff require more training. For example - The concierge could not direct me with any tourists sites in Mumbai.I am sure there is a list of what attractions are near the hotel but this was not given. At rcpetion it is worse as the staff was very busy every time I got there, results was that no one could help you and you simply had to come back at another time.Only two of the three lifts were working during y stay so this caused long waits in the lobby to get to you room (but I am sure this will be finished by beginning of July 2014)
Positives are - the staff do try and help when they have time! The Thai pavilion restaurant is really good. The pizza place is expensive and not so good.
The rooms are small but nicely decorated and comfortable. Wifi is not free.
Special mention to Dakshala "the inroom dinig lady" - she was always very helpful, friendly and assisting
