    I stayed in this hotel for the second time. Again I was disappointed by the room. It was a little run down and noisy especially given the high price. Pool, gym and breakfast are quite good. Next time I will probably stay in another Hotel.

    Taj Samundra has three types of rooms. Deluxe, Luxury and Club. Deluxe is the cheapest one and can have twin sharing as well.

    Yes, Taj is a very family oriented hotel. Having young Children will not be a problem. Additionally Taj has beautiful gardens with exotic tropical flowers that kids would love spending time in.
