Best location with terrible service

Wellingborough, United Kingdom

Staff was firstly rude and then sorry. There is cricket ground right next to pool but it's only for their staff. If you ask to play there, you get rude answer. Safety is your concern in pool, especially if you are with family. I was witnessed of danger incident that child was shouting for help in pool and safety guard was busy watching cricket. Buffet is something you look forward for, especially in 5Stars, but they cancel buffet most days in a week without prior notice, so last minute you have to book taxi and have to go out for dinner. Their internal quarrel between staff members was loud in dining, that everybody could hear. Service is absolutely appalling, take 30-35 minutes for every order you place. Food order taking and serving is terrible, order piazza and you get sandwich.

Exotica really makes your Goa holiday an exotic experience

National Capital Territory of Delhi, India

Probably the best hotel in South Goa, and it has a mix of everything - a beautiful beach, vast expanse of greens, a lovely pool and the best Taj hospitality. We stayed for a couple of days during the Jan 26th weekend, and the staff goes out of its way to make sure you are comfortable and pay attention to little details. The staff at the front office are really helpful with details as to how to go about planning your stay there, and making sure all the bookings are taken care of. The holiday was so comfortable, that's its probably go down as an annual ritual in our calendars.
