My parents stayed at Taj for 3 nights. While they enjoyed the views and beach/water villa, the service as per them was pretty ordinary. They had to wait for more than hour everyday for their dinner items to be served. On top of that they hardly got the items ordered even after second attempt. I guess Taj just didn't want...

The hotel and staff are fantastic, they could not do enough for you. On our last night we were taken to a special table on the beach for our dinner, when we returned to the room, the room was set up beautifully with flowers and swan towels on the bed - lovely touch! A great place to holiday.

My husband had booked a Water Villa with an all inclusive package for 5 days. The panoramic view of the ocean from our room was amazing.
