The ultimate destination for a relaxed lazy weekend at a classy resort on the beach. The view from the garden, and from the sea facing rooms are breath taking. The swimming pool is an add on attraction (as per the hotel rules, swimming costume must for using the pool). The quality and taste of food is standard. Same goes for the room service and front desk. A comfortable place to stay with family or friends. The garden area is lovely. Overall a good experience considering a short trip (as there's nothing much to do other than enjoying the view of the roaring sea) in a group.
A bit lengthy review, but it shelters every aspect of the hotel. ENTIRELY A FACTUAL AND UNBIASED CRITICISM . . Lately we went to Tarapith and we stayed in Hotel Sonar Bengali and it was such a delightful experience that we decided to stopover at their own hotel at Mandarmani. We booked the rooms from their own authorized agent. We booked the Tarapith hotel from this agent as well and he was really good. He said that we will get the costliest and finest rooms of the entire building. We were 3 families and reserved 3 rooms. It was okay till here Now the complications started here, We asked the hotel to pick us up from the Digha station. But when we reached the station we couldn't find our car. When we called them, they said someone else took our car and departed away. We were dumbstruck but fortunately there was another car which took us to our destination. Then we got to know that the rooms which we booked from Kolkata were inaccessible because there were some problem in those rooms and we will be given other rooms. They said that we would get a fridge and a coffee/tea maker in the new big and better room. But it was really unacceptable. Still we decided to stay there. While we were taken to our rooms, I saw dirty plates roaming here and there on the passage which was really sickening. Later, we got to know that our rooms were given to some other parties. THAT WAS RIDICULOUS. We saw different people standing on the balconies, though my camera was not present there at that moment but still I took a picture. Hotel. The hotel was really gorgeous. It was near the beach. The pool was big as displayed in the pictures and it looks quite astonishing at nighttime. After midnight the hotel went occupied silence. It was an amusing experience roaming the entire hotel at 2-2. 30 am. Rooms. These premium rooms were good, clean but no were near the deluxe best rooms. They were closest to the sea. They gave us teabags, coffee and milk once in or maximum two times in a day. So it was better to buy and have tea from the adjacent tea shops. It tasted better. The toilet was hygienic and the mattresses were spotless more or else. The television had most of the channels but the connection was totally smoky Service. Biggest disappointed of Sonar Bengali, Mandarmani. They should go and learn from their Tarapith staff. If we call them now, it would take them nearly an hour to know and resolve the problem. Most of the times, we went to their service desk to take water and ask for various other things or else we would have to halt without it for entire 1-2 hour. Suppose you ate your lunch/dinner, you would have to call them 2-3 times to take the plates and clean or else they would just keep the plates outside your room, like we saw while arriving Food. Another problem was their breakfast. They have made compulsory breakfast of Puri, Chole, Milk Tea, Bread, Butter, Jam and Boiled Egg. You want other food? Sorry they will not offer any other breakfast menus though they were stated in their menu. The Puri and chole was awfully bad. The street vendors makes much better than this. Lunch and Dinner was pricey but worthy. Try their fish items specially fry. Don't go for Chinese. [MENU GIVEN]. Rude and Bad Misbehaviors from the Management. I cited a lot of cons but it have not finished yet. The front desk people were really ghastly, rude and rowdy. I requested them about WiFi, they turned on but said it will charge me about 30 per hour. I know some zero-star hotels which offered free WiFi. Okay maybe it was there rule but the day we were coming back, we were about to check out at 1pm. But they came to us at 11am and said that the roads were blocked and we should check out then and there. They turned the AC off. It was like they were unofficially chucking us from their hotel. Later the hotel vehicle took us from the back roads which never get jammed. We felt entirely cheated. The management was a huge trickster. We were about to protest them about the full experience but we saw other families abusing them. So we got to know that everyone had kind of same experience Advice to Travelers. Don't Book From Kolkata or online. Nothing will help. They can change the bookings and make stories up easily. Better look for some other hotels I would sincerely request the proprietors to change your management or I will never ever visit here again !.
I traveled Mandarmani place with my family and stayed in Hotel Sonar Bengali. I did book it through my concern. Overall everything was excellent in the hotel. Billing and booking process was timely. Appearance of the hotel was lovely. Hotel staff was well-spoken and cooperative. Room was neat, clean, and proper maintained. Hotel was located at convenient place. Hors riding, swimming pool, candle night dinner, and other extra activities were available in the hotel. Food was present with veg, non-veg, Chinese, Indian food, etc. I took Indian veg food it was fine taste and quality wise. Complimentary breakfast was given by the hotel. Mandarmani as a destination is peaceful place. This hotel is value for money and I will recommend this hotel for everybody. I live in Guwahati city
My stay at this resort was good and had been to this resort with my friends. The location of this resort was good and in the city. The interior and exterior appearance of this resort was good. The services were prompt and the staff were good. The room that was provided to me was neat and cleans with availability of good amenities and there was a beach view from the room. There were no activities or any sightseeing trips that was organized by the resort management. The non-veg food that I ate at the restaurant was good and there were no problems while check-in and check-out. I would like to visit this hotel again since it was value for my money and I sure do suggest it to other travellers.
I stayed there for 2 days. Mandarmani as a place is good. Hotel location was good. Surrounding of the hotel was neat and clean. Beach was very bad and dirty. Appearance wise, it was very good. No improvement is needed. Reception people were very good. There was no delay in check-in and check-out. They attended our requests on time. Overall, service was very good. Staff was friendly and helpful with us. Room was very good. It was spacious, neat and clean. All amenities were working properly. View was good from the room. Food was also very good. Its quality was good. Swimming pool was there. Activity part was very good. Sightseeing trip was not arranged by them. I stayed there with my family in December 2013. It is worth staying hotel. I will recommend it to others.
