Location of the resort is undoubtedly awesome beach is just few meters away. There are only two sea view bamboo house so you need to do at least 2 months advance booking fortunately we got one. The rooms are pretty nice made up of bamboos at night you can find lizards inside your room but yes it is worth tolerating them. You won't find much options on the breakfast menu but, worth trying Malvan food. We also got a Bike on hire. I will surely recommend this hotel. Worth staying there would love to visit again.

Been there in January. May be biased a little as it was our honeymoon destination. The place is too good location wise. Booked a cottage for the stay. Ample space and clean bathroom. Rooms were cleaned everyday. Staff were cordial. Food was not up to the mark in comparison to MTDC level.

Sunset view from the balcony is awesum. Special mention for relaxed leisure afternoon spent on hammock in front of cottage. So much open area but fully secured. Any body can take a stroll during night. Beach is the cleanest, serene, pristine and not so populated. During walk on beach you can feel the movements of tiny red crabs underground. It's a perfect relaxed leisure weekend destination.

Its located right on the beach. You can hear the waves and feel the breeze the entire duration of your stay. The rooms are very nicely done up with a malvan flavor to it. The food is also good and if having small kid with you, staff helps you to cook for your baby too. The beach is one of the best we have seen in India. Clean, calm and still unexploited.

Tip: To aim water sports & trip to Sindhu Durg, avoid going during monsoons as ferry is non-functional because of weather conditions.

We went to this place for scuba diving and water sports. We stayed at this MTDC property. Property is huge and beautiful. It has its own beach and rooms were nice. We went in May and we had booked it in February, but still we could not get the cottages. We got the rooms which were in the boat shape. It has 2 floors and rooms which were down were much bigger. It had nice bathroom which was also big, but they had not maintained it well. Taps were leaking, natural lights was not there, and the lights were not working. There was camel riding and horse cart. Beach was clean and they provide soaps and hand wash, and also towels are provided. Food service section was really bad, lot of spices in everything. Breakfast was complimentary but was not much of choice. At least basics like bread, butter, jam should be kept in their menu so that children can have something. I would love to stay at this resort again, but I will try to bring my own food stuff.

We 2 families both 2+1 booked Karli Houseboat for 1 day. It was done online. After reaching the MTDC resort tarkarli we came to know that the Houseboat check-in is done 2kms ahead. We headed there through signboards to find a small house, but no office. The boats are anchored behind the house. We got into the boat the staff was quite quick to bring our luggage into the respective boat.

As soon as we checked-in the staff served kokam sharbat to welcome us on the deck. The cooked asked for the choice of food for lunch. The boat plunged into the backwaters of karli river to head towards the sea. After a ride of almost 1hr we reached the Sangam. The boat was anchored there. The place was called tsunami island where water sports were available. 6.30pm we came back again. Enjoyed Dinner on deck and relaxed till late night. Morning we were taken into the river side. the backwaters n brought back till 10.30 for check-out.

In all fantastic experience.

pros- Highly prompt, courteous staff. Food quality good. ambience good.
Cons- Food quantity and variety not at all satisfactory. Food and fish lovers enjoy fish and food at malwan or other hotels at tarkarli and come to relax on boat.

I had gone to Tarkarli Holiday Resort of MTDC with my husband to celebrate our wedding anniversary. It was a lovely vacation. This resort is amazing for a 2-3 days relaxed and fun Holiday.

This resort is located at an amazing place. It is ON THE BEACH! When you get out of your room all you see is beach! TV set is there in the room, but you really do not want it there. It is suggested that we do not compare this hotel to 5star resorts because the location is superb! There are hammocks hung on the pine trees outside every room. If you are vegetarian, there is no variety of food, but for non-vegetarians its a real treat. Sea food offered at the resort is too good and tasty. Typical Malvani style fish curries and crabs are served. There is scuba diving and dolphin rides too, but these are paid activities.

Service at the hotel is really nice, the staff is friendly and polite. Housekeeping happens timely. Rooms and bathrooms are well kept and clean. Sometimes when there is rush at the restaurant, they may not deliver food to your room, but they tell this very polite that you don't mind going to the restaurant yourself.

Alcohol is not allowed to be carried on the beach nor in the restaurant. You can have it in your room. You can get it just outside the resort on walking distance. There are some local people who also provide food and dining facilities which are cheaper and equally good. Do not carry alcohol if you are taking your own car to this place it is banned. Vegetarians should carry some dry snacks because you may get bored with the same kind of food.

I booked a non AC room last time, which was also sea facing however a little further from the sea. I would book an AC Konkani House next time to get a perfectly awesome sea view closest to the beach!

This resort is right on the beach. We had opted for a konkani hut. The room was pretty decent. The food was ordinary. But the best part of the resort is the sea view and the ambience. The property is very well kept. The beach is one of the best in the konkan belt. Worth a visit.

I stayed in this resort with my family in the month of February. This hotel was easy to locate and it was within city. The appearance of the hotel both internally and externally was superb. There was delay during check-in and check-out process. The behaviour of the staff in the hotel was good and they were helpful and friendly in the service. The room in which I stayed was good and well-maintained, and there was a sea view from the hotel room. I ate food in this hotel restaurant, it was tasty and the price was reasonable too. There were no activities that were happening in the hotel. The hotel was value for money and I will recommend it to other travellers.

The hotel is convenient to locate and it is easily approachable from the main road. I had been here on my honeymoon in the month of February. The surrounding of the hotel is superb but its appearance is quite normal with good interiors. The staff members in the hotel are helpful and professional in service. The room allotted to us was maintained cleanly with all the needful amenities and had a sea view from window. The food quality of the hotel was poor and taste was average, and there is no good restaurant available nearby. There are no activities available and sightseeing trip was not organised. According to my visit the hotel is good but since food quality is poor and no restaurant is available nearby I would not recommend this hotel to others.

Tarkarli located in Malvan has beautiful beaches with clear, clean refreshing water and golden sand. My family took a break of 3 days which refreshed and recharged us. Beach lovers will thoroughly enjoy bathing in the cool, clear clean water and basking in the scenic beauty.

We stayed 2 days at MTDC resort in the family room. The ambiance around the resort and proximity to the beach is spell bounding except that the room needs to be well-maintained. The rates though expensive compared to the other hotels around the ambiance is worth the rate.

The food in every hotel has fish in the menu but some homestays if you find out and ask are ready to cook fish for a negotiable rate if you buy it and give it to them. The fish is available at the jetty in the evening and also at the market.

A visit to Tarkarli is incomplete without scuba diving which if done through a reliable and experienced agent is enjoyable. It is better to enquire with 2 or 3 agents. The tsunami island is worth visiting. A visit to Dolphin Point does not necessarily mean you can spot a dolphin. The boat ride across the backwaters was indeed superb. A truly enjoyable experience.
