"One of the excellent resort of Maharashtra "

Posted 24 May

One of the excellent resort of Maharashtra. Work is still going on but i've stayed in many resort & I can say that it's one of the best resort so far. Sea view AC cottage are best as they are on hills & giving perfect sea view. Located just below forest trees hence you get pure oxygen, you don't need AC also. Furniture & amenities like fridge, quick water heater, working telephones, nice wooden interior, spacious rooms are one of the best feature. Restaurant is excellent with food & location. Need to act quickly on parking space for which I guess work is going on. Harihareshwar temple is just 1. 5 Km away. Withal Jamal restaurant is just 200 m away for trying variety. You can purchase Mango's from nearby only. Nice staff. Need to do something in play area for kids as all toys are broken there. Suggestion - Sea view AC cottages are better that sea view super deluxe AC cottage s.

"Excellent resort to stay "

Posted 4 Mar, 2016

MTDC, provides yet another great resort. It's perfectly located. Being only 1 km. From shrine, is a great thing to have this kind of ultra luxury resort. Costs around 1500 for a room. Restaurant is OK. It provides food, which tastes a bit like home made food. Way better than other private hotels and lodges, in Harihareshwar.

"Comfortable cottages with all amenities "

Posted 16 Feb, 2016

The resort is undergoing upgradation. Sea view cottages are very comfortable with all the amenities. Resort restaurant was in a makeshift arrangement but food was bearable. No facilities for any other activity. Service is OK. If I have a chance to visit the place I will definitely prefer this resort.

"Quality of the food was good"

Posted 2 Feb, 2016

The hotel was good. The food served by the hotel was good in variety. The quality of the food was good. The hotel was located nearby the highway. I reached the hotel easily. The room allotted to me was neat and clean. The amenities at the room were in good working condition. The check in and checkout process was not delayed. The garden was there at the hotel surrounding. The lawn was there at the hotel for children. It was an official trip. The parking facility was there at the hotel.

"Location is prime and rooms are designed "

Posted 11 Jan, 2016

The best part of MTDC Resorts are their location are very prime. When we visited this place I liked the way the rooms are designed and the staircase leads you towards the beach side. However since the rooms were in renovation phase we didn't had a very good experience.

"Great location comes with a dolphin Watch"

Posted 6 Jan, 2016

The resort is located on the beach and we were fortunate enough to watch dolphins from the restaurant area. The beach is rocky and not so clean to enjoy. Food in the canteen was good and tasty. Sleep quality and bed material was also good. I would recommend this place if going to Harihareshwar. They have beautiful newly built cottage, it's very romantic and peaceful.

"Overall a good experiences "

Posted 22 Dec, 2015

What you cannot argue about MTDC resorts are their locations -- brilliant. Harihareshwar is brilliantly located, between the hills and a beach that is almost exclusively for the guests. I had visited the property 10 years ago and it was so green and the rooms so nice but this time it was not very good. The Konkani huts were in a sad state, the walls had wet patches. The overall cleanliness in the room is fine but the garden area, which was so good and rustic, was in decrepit condition. There were wild shrubs growing all over the area. But the newly built super deluxe AC rooms that gives you a sea view were classy. If you want to stay in the next one year, stay in the super deluxe ac rooms. But there is construction going on and until that takes place, Harihareshwar is not worth visiting.Ten years ago the canteen that produced food was average. Now they are terrible. If not for the complimentary breakfast, I would not have had my breakfast there at all. They don't know how to make a cup of tea, the vegetarian dishes have a generous dose of added-on colour and are tasteless.

"Pleasant place to stay & relax"

Posted 15 Dec, 2015

We went to Harihareshwar in Sep 2015, along with my cousin's family. We have booked 2 sea view cottages and the experience has been really good. The individual well-kept cottages are just in front of this rocky Harihareshwar beach and the sound of the waves can be clearly heard in the room or balcony, during evenings. Although, not much to do in here, except 2 beaches and few temples. Food was good but the restaurant was under construction and we had food in a temporary place, not very convenient. Overall, good place to relax with family and friends.

"Nice sea view from the room"

Posted 12 Nov, 2015

We quite liked this place, as a good weekend gateway from the humdrum of Mumbai. The drive down is good, early morning even better. Takes around 5 hours from vashi. And yes, Google maps help in case there aren't people on the road to guide. The rooms are quite basic, but enough for a family of 3, with an infant. The A/C rooms were comfortable, neat and clean. The ambience is quite. The restaurant is more like a dhaba with chairs laid out. The great part is that the staff is quite helpful and very friendly. Unlike the professional aloofness of hotels. They provide room service at no extra cost. We had 'thali' dinner, with the quality being good and quantity more than enough. Good place for one night weekend getaway!

"Excellent stay in amazing location "

Posted 20 May, 2015

I went to Harihareshwar with my family and friends. We stayed there for around 3 days and it was an excellent hotel with good service. The rooms were good, they look like small huts from outside, but from inside they are well-equipped and clean. Every family had a separate hut and all huts were closeby. The location of the hotel was amazing! It was very close to the beach and we had an amazing view of the beach from the balcony. You can walk over to the beach in the morning or evening. We had our breakfast together in an open place from where we had an amazing view of the beach. Harihareshwar is a beautiful place for beach lovers especially. We went during the early weeks of July and there were light showers now and then. The food was also good overall. The hotel was affordable and worth the money. If you are looking for a place out with family and friends, Harihareshwar is definitely a good option.

"As usual, MTDC has the best spots on the Konkan co..."

Posted 16 Mar, 2006

As usual, MTDC has the best spots on the Konkan coastline. The resort is directly on the proximity of the southern beach of Harihareshwar - a beach with black sand and some rocky area for those who hate wriggling in sand :-). The resort offered a choice of a/c and non a/c Konkani huts and a luxurious tent was up for grabs near the beach, though we went by the first option for economy – and also because we had pre-booked it and we were too tired from a bumpy ride from Pune to go through the switching over formalities. The staff is courteous, though you soon forget them when the marvelous view of the sea beckons you from every corner of your room! As the rooms are really close to the sea you can have a free run for the beach by descending the slope anytime and having a swim. Though there are no activities at the resort, there are quite a few explorations to be done around the place – some of them are breathtaking like visiting the Peshwa Smarak through a motor-boat ride, descending the steps from the cliff behind the temple to reach the pounding sea and last but not the least having a feast of the vast unspoiled pristine beauty of the seaside. Overall, a holiday in this resort is a definitely relaxing experience, and there is a atmosphere here that is very different from the one prevailing at crowded touristy places like Gorai or Goa. What more to ask for if a god forsaken place like this reachable with a very bumpy ride can rejuvenate you in a single weekend?

"Good hotel to stay with quality food"

Posted 26 Dec, 2014

It was my relaxation trip with family and my stay at this hotel was awesome. The hotel is located conveniently near to the bus stop and was easy to travel. The staff at the hotel were very friendly and professional in service. The appearance of the hotel was very attractive and the room allotted to me was very spacious with all the required amenities in proper functioning condition and had an awesome sea view but there was a bad odour in the room during rainy season. The food provided was really very good both in quality and taste with different varieties. There was no delay during check-in and check-out process and it was done smoothly.

"Decided to drive from Mumbai to Harihareshwar sudd..."

Posted 9 Nov, 2009

Decided to drive from Mumbai to Harihareshwar suddenly one fine morning. Decent drive - only that a road stretch of about 10-15 kms was horribly potholed. Checked into MTDC - probably the best in the area - could not see anything better in the area. There are a lot of private B&B with signboards declaring \'Approved by MTDC\' - decided not to look into any them, went straight to the MTDC. Had a look at the \'Deluxe tent\' - the most expensive cottage, and the closest to the beach. It was too small, and also infested with too many insects for my comfort. The \'Konkan\' cottage was decent, insect free, except for the bathroom. Bathroom had some of ants - that I decided was ok. That was big decision, considering that I hate the presence of even a single insect in the rooms. And the place is in the middle of almost a forest :-) The guy at the reception was helpful - he had suggested that I have a look at all the room types and then decide. The restaurant was just about 2-3 minutes walk from the room, and the beach another 2 minutes. The place does not look very elegant, but the place is just about ok. The restaurant food of good - possibly because I had lowered my expectations. And the guys in the restaurant were very polite and accommodative to my stringent gastronomical requirements - made stuff to my order, even when it was not on the menu. But prepared to give them a 30 minute notice - they cook after you place the order. Probably faster during weekends when, as I understand, the place is full. I had gone on a Friday, and the place was almost deserted. Beach is definitely serene, and the whole place was divine - with the light sound of the wave and the wind. I was lucky that the place was virtually deserted as it was a weekday. To cut short and summarize - for a place as desolate as Harihareshwar, MTDC is ok - and probably the best bet. But keep your expectations under control.

"Good rooms and service but vegetarian food not good"

Posted 18 Dec, 2014

The location of the hotel was very comfortable. The hotel staff members were professionals were very helpful and friendly. The appearance of the hotel was good. Both the internal and external appearance was good looking. The room given to me was very spacious, neat and clean. The room was well maintained. All the amenities were working well. I took vegetarian food which was not good they don't have proper menu for vegetarian foods. I did not find any delay in check-in and check-out process. There were no any activities provided by the hotel. They did not arrange any sightseeing trip for me. The stay was value for money.

"Overall experience was good"

Posted 1 Jan, 2015

Good hotel conveniently located with beautiful surroundings. The hotel's appearance was good and any middle class family can go and enjoy the trip nicely. Food quality was very good with lot of varieties to choose. The staff and their services were really good and rooms are good with clean beds, mattress, pillows and blankets. We could see the nice beach and garden view from the hotel. There were a lot of fun filled activities conducted by them. This hotel was one of the best for honeymoon and family trip. Overall experience was good and value for money. I would surely recommend this to others.
