As I mentioned in my review on Tarkarli houseboats, I have been to Tarkarli twice. Once I stayed in the house boats and the second time in the resort. I truly enjoyed both stays. The resort is well located and quite spacious. The resort directly faces the beach, so you can easily walk up to the beach from your cottages. We stayed in the AC cotta....Read More

Top Reviews of MTDC Holiday Resort Tarkarli
The MTDC Resort at Tarkarli is an enchanting place with beautiful cottages with its own hammock, a cloth line and a tap near the entrance (which any woman will vouch for its utmost utility considering the amount of time spent in the sea!). This tap water is so sweet that can be used for drinking also :) We had a beautiful time (my 5 year old daughter talks about it everyday even though we have taken her to many beaches). This is one place that you dont have to make any attempts to leave your thoughts on office or any other to leave behind, you step into this resort and it takes over you like your mother taking you in her arms and you automatically feel happy and relaxed.
Tarkarli has to be Maharashtra Tourism’s and ITDC’s best kept secret. How else do you explain the fact that even the average Mumbaikar has not heard of it? What do you get there? Gentle waves of crystal clear water, powdery silver-white sandy beaches which stretch for miles, lovely boat cruise on the tranquil backwaters of the Karli creek, the most awesome sea food at ridiculous prices, lovely beach-facing cottages in an idyllic setting. If you are lucky, some dolphins too. The MTDC resort is nestled in the midst of a casuarina grove with each of the 20 ethnic-looking cottages facing the sea. Hammocks and beach umbrellas are generously strewn all over the resort for those whose idea of a perfect holiday is a book. The aesthetically designed cottages look like huts from the outside. There are a few air-conditioned cottages which cost only Rs 400 more. The rooms are clean and functional as are the bathrooms. It is great value for money. Since there are only few rooms, you may need to book well in advance particularly if you plan to be there during the kids’ holidays. Efficiency is not the forte of Mr. Mithbaukar who runs the restaurant which is contracted out by MTDC. Nor is the quality of food. It is well worth your while to drive the 7 km into Malvan town for every meal (except breakfast). The food in Malvan (for the uninitiated, Malvani food can give Thai a run for its money as far as richness of flavours is concerned) is to die for. In particular, try Saiba which offers a great view of the sea and a really wide selection of food. Bamboo, Ruchira and Chaitanya are homely and have a limited spread. But the food is great as usual. Seer (Surmai), Pomfret (Paplet), Macherel (Bangra), Crab (Khekra) and prawns are staple diet in Malvan and Tarkarli. They don’t come better or cheaper than this. Every Friday, a large group of people traveling on the Deccan Odyssey descends on the resort for a few hours in the morning. Every Friday the resort dresses up for these train travelers. Ten rooms are perpetually reserved for half a day every Friday. If you book late, you might be among the ones who need to vacate their rooms for a few hours. Another thing to expect is frequent power cuts but the power was invariably back by 6.30 pm. The staff is friendly and helpful but the service usually slow. Did I mention that cellphones don’t work here, so chill. There are a few mosquitoes, but MTDC has thoughtfully provided repellants in the rooms. However, if you want to party outdoors, carry your own spray/cream. The Sindhudurg fort nearby, built by Shivaji in the 17th century, is also a must see. On your way back, don’t forget to buy Zantye’s cashews (very cheap), kokum and Malvani masalas at Deulkar’s or Anuradha. You can even visit the Zantye’s factory if you are interested. As long as you know what to expect, absolute nothing will disappoint you. Don’t know if this review was such a good idea after all. Next time I am there I don’t want to be run over by the hordes who will soon stop going to Goa!
Its beautifully located right on the beach and the best place to stay in Tarkarli, as no other resort or guest house is located on the beach or has a sea front view from the rooms. It offers a variety of staying options like A/c or non A/c cottages, rooms in a boat shape house, Houseboats, and a dormitory. All the cottages and rooms in boat shaped house gives you the beach view. Both Veg. and Non Veg. food is well served. They have Kerala Ayurvedic massage facility along with Water sports like Snorkeling, Speedboat and Water scooter. All water sports are carried out away from the main resort. Bookings can be done through net or by visiting any of the MTDC offices also note that during public holiday weekends the occupancy rate is high so prior booking is more feasible.
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!
