We booked this place for an outing of the extended family and booked all the rooms available i.e. 6 AC rooms and 1 Non AC. Loved the feeling of being treated as "eminent guests" right from the time of booking to check out! The address as well as menu were quickly informed over social media. The staff were very cordial...

Please avoid.....Not worth at all for the price.... I had made the booking through Booking.com and also received a confirmation from booking.com. However on reaching Alibaug I was informed that they dont accept booking though Booking.com at all. They offered me the A/C room that I had booked only for one day. The A/C room was very substandard and filthy... More

It is definitely value for money place, helpful and fulfilling staff and lovely green. All it needs is little up gradation in terms of interiors. Pool is clean and maintained. Try and opt for first floor rooms, they are located better with common terrace and better view. Lower floor rooms are located near the kitchen and common hall, so no... More

Went there with my wife to bring in our 2nd anniversary. Here is my review section wise. Location (3/5) Some 7kms from Mandwa. A ferry from Gateway of India takes you to Mandwa. Nearest beach is Kihim, Alibaug is some 12kms. Looks (4/5): The hotel from outside looks good. Lush green lawn, mini swimming pool, a swing in the veranda.... More

Spent a night here whilst exploring Alibag and surroundings. Very laid back and friendly place - the owner and staff are relaxed and helpful. It's 14km from Alibag and not really near any of the beaches, but as I was driving it wasn't an issue. Good to have wi-fi available free of charge.

Visited this place during christmas vacation on 25th December. Booked it online through makemytrip. It is a nice old bungalow converted into an hotel. So don't expect professionally managed hotel like environment. If you are with a large group and kids, its a nice place because there are common areas to hang out. They provide free wi-fi facility.

Well to begin with we had our first ever alumni reunion here wherein a motley group of 24 boys (now men) assembled. We were made comfortable from the moment we stepped in. The rooms were nice and clean. The food was homemade and succulent. The barbecue setting was good. The karaoke was entertaining. Good and neat garden with a pool... More
