Wonderful resort
Wonderful beach resort with nice restaurants. Had a good time. Though overall experience is good, few things can be improved upon. The room furniture looked tad old, the AC control didn't work and hot water in wash basins wasn't available.

Golf experience
Nous avons passé 2 merveilleux jours dans un cottage en bord de mer. Tout est très bien, le restaurant en bord de mer est super sauf la musique un peu trop forte pour un dîner. L.ensemble du personnel est au petit soin. Le spa est excellent.

Overly Priced But Satisfied Due to Complimentary Upgrade
I have always enjoyed Taj Holidays and try to have one when possible. I also try to stay in a Taj property on official trips when I can. However, I found Taj Fisherman Cove to be overly priced and absolutely not value for money - not for the quality of your rooms or any special packages - and even the weather does not compliment the overpriced set-up. I was quite disappointed upon reaching. The sea-facing room totally hid the sea behind the trees - and sitting near the windows was problematic due to the dust settled in the curtains and the couch. Your phones seemed to have drained-out batteries. On top of that your manager Shashank was too rigid to extend any good offers. My family and I were very much disappointed and decided to make this our last ever Taj Holiday. However, thanks to Mr. Patrick who understood our disappointment and came to the rescue by providing a complimentary upgrade to a sea-facing cottage for our second day of stay. That turned the mood on and we all spent the second day very happily. Thus reinstating my trust in Taj Holidays. Food at the restaurant was great as usual - and the staff was wonderful too. Even the housekeeping staff was great. However, I will always recommend this hotel with the warning that it is overpriced.

A Seaside Resort ....Fun and Frolic
Indeed the Taj hospitality at its best, and what more can you ask for it was a wonderful sojourn with fun and frolic. Sankar Esakkimuthu Revenue Manager needs a special mention, for being extremely efficient. Sankar went out of his way to meet my Rooming requests and ensure I was delighted! If not for this my holiday with my family holiday would have never been this wonderful!
