Property was not very well maintained throughout but it was a huge property. You can have a nice walk inside. If someone likes to be with the nature this is the best property. The water park was very well maintained and had lots of fun. They do not have room service at all. For everything you need to go to the reception. Even for tea you need to go to the restaurant. The rooms were not at all maintained but it was spacious. The suite had three rooms.

We travelled to Lonavla thrice (once on a day trip and stayed at MTDC twice). It was hardly 2.5 hours from Mumbai and is a great place for monsoon getaway. The drive from Mumbai during monsoons is awesome with small waterfalls on the way.

MTDC is located at Karla, few km ahead of the main Lonavla town. It's a huge property which offers a very private vacation. Both the times we went to MTDC, we extended our stay by 2 days because of the relaxation it offers from the mad crowd at Mumbai. My views about MTDC:

Location: The resort is not difficult to locate if you keep an eye on the signboards. It's little away from the city so it's best to have your vehicle when you drive down to MTDC. There are autos always at the gate, but I am guessing they charge quite high.

Property: It's a huge property and you can park your car right in front of your room. It has a lake, restaurant, play area, ayurveda centre. It has a water park also but we didn't explore it (thanks to our laziness).

Room: Rooms are clean, though little run down. We stayed once in AC cottage and next time in non-AC (AC is not required usually in the monsoons). The difference between the 2 is the balcony/verandah. The AC ones have a cement railing on which you can sit and enjoy the surroundings. It would be nice if they could provide chairs in the balcony. There were scheduled power cuts but they had power backups. Extra pillows, mattresses are charged.

Restaurant: It's just manageable. They have a room service too, but its slow. They have a morning tea service which is good. If you have a car, you can drive to Lonavla town and there are many good restaurants around. You have Rajdhani, Dominos, etc. and no. of Gujrati food joints which offer thali at reasonable prices.

Play area: It is all wet during monsoons so we didn't use them much. The 2nd time we went, we had our 7 month old baby with us and he liked the swing.

Lake: It's not very clean but not bad too!

The staff is friendly and what we liked the most about the place is the kind of relaxation it offers. You can take a morning walk and evening walk and spend whole day sitting outside, reading a book or listening to music. We don't live in Mumbai any more but will definitely stay at MTDC if we happen to visit Lonavla again!

It was a good hotel. I liked it. We travelled there by car. Parking space was available there. There was no activity available there. No sightseeing trip was organized by them. Room was spacious and well-maintained. It was also neat and clean. TV, geyser, and other provided amenities were working properly in the room. River was available nearby the hotel so river view was available from the room. There was no delay in check-in and check-out time. Inside and outside look of the hotel was good. It was value for money. I will recommend this hotel to others. I had gone there with my friends in 2013.

I did not face any difficult to find the hotel and the hotel location was good. The staffs of the hotel were professional and the service was nice. The room provided was spacious, clean and well maintained. The appearance was fine. There was no delay in check in and check out procedure. The money spent on the hotel was worth paid. I would definitely recommend this hotel to other travellers.

I must say that the room service was very good, efficient and cheap. The staff were very polite and attentive to all your needs. No problem during check-in and check-out and there were activities, but they were not working condition. Location was excellent, there was no difficult to find out and there were shopping malls and temples nearby. Hotel appearance was good and the interior was well decorated. I took non-AC room, room was spacious, neat and comfortable with basic amenities and there was greenery view from the room. They provided food with less varieties, the quality and taste of the food was not good. There was sufficient parking space facility and they arranged a vehicle for sightseeing places. I stayed here for official purpose with colleagues. They provided only Maharashtrian food so they should also provide north and south Indian food.

In my view hotel was situated conveniently. I travelled there with my family for relaxation. Rooms were neat, clean and well-managed. TV, AC, geyser and other basic amenities were available. Complimentary breakfast they did not serve. Staff behaviour was friendly. Hotel was value for money. I will recommend this hotel for travellers.

It's easy to find the resort as it is on the main road. Hotel appearance was very good from outside. Room service was not given on time. No one bothered to check if everything was okay in the room, they didn't change the bed sheets, pillow covers for two days. There is a water park as it is a resort. Sightseeing trips organized by the hotel were very expensive. Room service should be provided regularly and staff should be prompt.

I went there by public transport with group for adventure purpose in August month. Pick up and drop facility was not available. It is a governmental property. Services were not up to the mark. Rooms were average. Food was below average. Nothing was available in activities. Lonavala place is nice for travel. Location of the hotel was fine. Inner and outer look of the hotel was nice. I booked my room through online. Booking and front office was below average.

I reached this place by road. Parking facility was there. I went there by my own car. Staff in that hotel was friendly with me. They were quick to attend to all my requests. There was no problem with staff. I had my food outside the hotel. Room was neat and clean. All amenities were present in the room. Swimming pool was there but gym was not there. Badminton, carom, and other indoor games were available in this hotel. We went for sightseeing by our own vehicle. View was visible from the room. Look of the hotel was good. Pune is a good place. Location wise, it was also good. Appearance wise, it was good. Check in and check out process was good. Overall services of the hotel were also good. Room was good. Food was very bad. Money wise, it was a reasonable hotel. I can recommend this hotel to other travellers. I visited there with my family friends in April 2014.
