Guest reviews for Taj Holiday Village Resort & Spa

4 out of 5

Monsoon Stay

It rained the first two days we were at the hotel. They provided rides in golf carts and umbrellas. The pool is great. The kid's activities are good. The staff is very friendly, especially after you've been there a few days, and they recognize you. The spa is terrific and a good value. \nThe downsides are: \n- You have to take a courtesy car to the Ft. Aquada hotel down the road to use the fitness center or spa. \n- The food is very expensive. Expect to pay NY prices. That's the only real downside, because its excellent. \n- There's no beach. It's been washed away along with a good part of the cliff.
