Taj Exotica is a fantastic hotel for families. Rooms are very spacious and had a free crib and baby toiletries. Large gorgeous grounds with bike paths and bikes you can just borrow anytime... even small ones with training wheels for kids. Kids program was easy to drop off kids for activities. A daily list of activities and entertainment was given out each evening so you knew what was on the next day. All the restaurants had great food. Everything we ate was delicious!
Hotel is fine the food was nice staff was very helpful the girls working at reception desk reina saru Sajana the boy who woks at nite lalit I enjoyed the spa and ur staff were very helpful only problem was too many Mosquitos
The only thing i can moan about were the other guests having no consideration for other people staying there mostly the Indians. The beds are very comfortable, nice clean pool, bed linen changed daily, a little more attention could have been taken on the cleaning of the rooms(bleach, toilet etc) but for Indian standards not bad. Staff very friendly and food in The Blue Lagoon restaraunt was excellent! The hotel was in the perfect place for bars n beach!
On side road, so not too much traffic( although avoid road facing rooms) and within 15min walk of Benaulim beach.
Good sized pool and free internet, table-tennis and pool ( in air-conditioned space) Buffet b/fast which was included with our package was really great although a bit slow ( as it had to be pre-ordered)--but then why are you in a hurry on holiday? Taxis just outside hotel more expensive than at the cross-roads
Quick 5min walk to Maria Hall cross road if you want bus to Colva beach or Margao town for shopping/groceries (bus ride Rs10 each way) Lots of eateries close by and mini supermarket. Clean beach with life-guards and shacks.
Johncy's is my favourite with great food ( average price per dish Rs200)and super views of the sea during daylight hours.
It's not unusual to see bulls around Benaulim, especially between October and March, as bullfights are a popular (and illegal) pastime. No matadors here; these bullfights involve two bulls. If you're in the mood for nature of a less confrontational variety, fishermen offer morning rides to spot dolphins off the coast. Or, sit on the tranquil and serene beaches and stare out at the Arabian Sea.
