First the good. We were there over Christmas and the effort the hotel and staff put into the entertainment and decorations was there for all to see.

Very convenient garden / sea facing rooms. Rooms are not the biggest size but comfortable. The hotel had arranged for a Divwali party with fireworks and great food n drinks – great job. Legenedary taj hospitality continues. Nice stretch of beach directly accessible from the rooms. Nice baby pool with fountain.

Highlights for us for nice rooms with good view of the ocean and a lovely beach. Breakfast is also a super hit especially the Egg hoppers, Idly's and Dosas. However the buffet dinner was underwhelming and the Chinese restaurant was certainly not 5-star quality.
