U Tropicana , Alibaug
Chondi Naka Mapgaon Road Alibaug
Resort - a huge place with lots and lots of lawn area and shacks to sit around and relax. The swimming pool is right in the center surrounded by rooms on 3 sides, looks magnificent at dusk. The huge and clean pool with kids area and managed by a decent and efficient lifeguard. Sit Outs in the lawn area make it for memorable evenings sipping on cocktails or liquor. Cycles of all sizes help you move around the resort. A golf cart helps you to reach your room from reception and yes they are kids friendly too. Rooms - huge rooms with all amenities as promised. The rooms are clean and clear, and the linen as well. The view from rooms is good too with a small balcony overlooking the pool. No cranky AC's or wet walls. Service - excellent staff and prompt service, very helpful. They just make sure the guests don't feel left out. Breakfast - lavish spread and edible too with all kinds of varieties on offer too. Restaurant - thats one area they need to upscale. Less varieties on menu for lunch or dinner and also the cost for a-la-carte seems to be on a higher side. Hence I saw quite a few at restaurants in Kihim or alibaug. Else the food is tasty and relished. All in all a good experience and would surely go again probably during rains to experience more greenery and windy atmosphere. A big Thank you to the staff of uTropicana for making it memorable.
We visited this place in month of September to celebrate my birthday at the hotel. We drove to the hotel and had to rely on Google Maps to locate the hotel. The hotel is well-spread and covered by greenery. All the rooms were spacious, well-designed, comfortable and had swimming pool view with a small gallery on both the floors. The buildings with rooms has a U structure with activities like carom, pool table and library. The restaurant was located on the second floor and has both closed and open sitting. I liked the idea of the keeping cycles around the rooms for their customers. We didn't use ourselves but quite a few guests used the facility. Front desk staff were very friendly and courteous especially "Karan" and luggage transfer service was very nice and convenient. We chose to stay inside the property throughout our stay for two nights and one of the major complain was regarding food served at the restaurant and room. Restaurant only had buffets menu and a la carte for rooms. We had buffet breakfast at the restaurant which was okay and really needed lot of improvement. Food ordered via a la carte menu were okay to taste but staff kept getting us wrong items every time we ordered something. The food department really needs lot of urgent improvements to keep their guests happy. I will be very hesitant to try food again and might rely on external restaurants when I visit next.
I visited the Tropicana Resort in month of March. This is my second stay in this resort. I choose Deluxe Room, which have all modern amenities. The resort premises itself is excellent. Well maintain. Food is also excellent. Service is prompt Can choose any rooms all are good.
I was able to reach the hotel comfortably without any problem. I had gone there by own vehicle. Everything was excellent in the hotel. Behaviour of the staff members was fantastic. There was no delay in check-in and check-out facility. Inside and outside look of the hotel was beautiful. I did book my room in advance. I stayed there many times. Rooms were spacious and it was facilitated with TV, geyser, etc. and they all were in working condition. Swimming pool view was visible from the room. Surrounding of the hotel was very nice. Food facility was available there in buffet system. Both varieties were available there veg and non-veg. My stay was for one day there. Relaxation activities were available there like swimming pool, golf, etc. I think it was a four or five star hotel. They did arrange cab facility for sightseeing trip. Alibaug place is lovely destination for outing and also valuable place. Location of the hotel was superb. I have no suggestion for hotel improvement. I had gone there before two-three months for official purpose.
We went there with no expectations whatsoever. It was a resort where we got accomodation at short notice when atleast 4 other resorts around Bombay told us they were full - so were a bit apprehensive actually. Check in process was quick & smooth. Were taken to our rooms. We had a one bedroom suite and one two bedroom suite. Excellent rooms. Very well maintained. Large living room with average sized bedrooms with attached bathrooms. Airconditioning works well. There is a TV in each room. For entertainment they have a swimming pool, pool table, and table tennis. They even set up the carrom board in our living room. They have a generator for power backup (very essential). Meals are freshly prepared. The staff will come to your room and take your order in advance and then you can choose to either eat in or go to the restaurant. Breakfast has an additional option of eating out by the poolside or lawn. Go there with friends for a relaxing weekend.
