All I can say about "Waterfront" is, that it always meets your expectations. Recently had lunch there, it was a special day for us as it was my parents Anniversary. The variety of the items in the buffet menu and their deliciousness was what I came to expect from Goa Mariott(Waterfront). A special Anniversary cake was also brought to our table by the gracious staffs which made our time there even more memorable. On our way out we also visited GBC(cake shop inside Goa Mariott). Its a must visit place for all the dessert loving people.
We spent 2 nights at the hotel. Perfectly located at picturesque Miramar beach overlooking Mandovi river. My co-brother is Elite Bonvoy member which comes with its own special benefits not to be missed! Day 1 - As soon as you enter the hotel, you are greeted with warm smile from the team. Sitting in spacious and beautifully designed lobby we admired the superb sea view. Refreshing drink served to us took away all the tired feeling from the travel and we were tempted to rush the beach and enjoy sunset. We dashed off to the beach and the moment water gushed our feet, we felt the long travel was worth it! The kids went crazy and started drawing their names in the sand. Opting for food inclusive plan turned out to be very good decision and all of us had sumptuous dinner treating our tastebuds after such a long time. Chef Dattaguru was kind enough to enquire about the taste and our liking. All staff were very courteous and helpful to all our special requests – hot soups for kids and all. I can’t stop but mention ‘Debjani’ who took all our requests with earnest urgency and made sure we were happy! After our dinner, we took a stroll around the pool and sat on the sofa outside for chat. Sitting quietly on the chairs outside, sound of the waves dashing the beach literally soothed our senses. This is no doubt the best part of the hotel and gives you immense satisfaction of making the right hotel choice for your stay! Day 2 – We stayed at Ground floor Rooms with Patio and it had direct access to sitting area outside and also quick access to the beach. Early morning next day, we enjoyed our morning tea sitting outside watching sea waves and clicking pictures and selfies. Breakfast next day morning was a heavenly and heavy affair with nicely laid out options and live counter for Dosa and omelettes put the icing on cake! After some sightseeing, we returned to hotel around 5 pm and kids wanted to enjoy swimming in the pool. We had great fun in the pool and it made us hungry for dinner. We were spoilt for choices at the dinner table and our special requests were promptly attended to by Debjani and her team. I must mention a small but very important incident during our dinner service. There was a small issue with our dinner service which we informed Debjani about and she immediately took steps and apologized for inconvenience. Day 3 – Next day during breakfast, senior team member Delana called upon during our breakfast time and she courteously asked about our stay experience and again apologized about dinner service incident which made us wonder how seriously feedback is taken by the management. I appreciate Marriot management for imparting the best training amongst all their staff members which sometimes is most important criteria while choosing your hotel. We were treated by chef Dattagur with special Maharashtrian sweet delicacy “Shira” who won our heart with the taste. Lunch again was superb as usual and made special by Delana arranging goan speciality of mixed veg made with Shaguti masala. We will always remember our stay at Marriot, Goa which was made special by exceptional hospitality by all the team members! Kudos to all members whose names I have mentioned herein + other. DEBJANI, DELANA, DATTAGURU, SYDENEY, SADIKA AND EVERYONE ELSE!…
Mamta is Amazing. GBC is always my favourite place to go because of her service and hospitality. I have always seen her putting the best foot forward to make her customers comfortable and happy. All the best!
Exceptional standards of service. Each and every member of the staff is constantly trying to go out their way to take care of you. Delana, Chef Shouvik, Pranay, Srividya, Shubham, are just some of the exceptional folks of the Marriott crew. The hotel itself is beautifully located on the Miramar beach. One can walk almost 3.5 km each way on the beach and enjoy a beautiful sunset as well. The rooms are lovely with either a patio or a balcony. Loved the bathroom. It had an awesome shower and large bathtub. Great place regardless of whether you are traveling solo or with family.
I liked the hazelnut crunch recommended by Mamta, she knew the menu very well ..will drop by definitely often.... Excellent service and good menu selection..the ambience is very very good and centrally located.
