The place is not at all a place which you will look for at Murud. There is no view of the sea. Hospitality of the stuffs are horrible. No basic amenities. Forget about any luxury and certainly overpriced. Better to avoid this place. Far below from medium types of hotels.

The hotel has a small pool in front, the rooms are clean and sort of cozy, but simple. The best thing was the sea view and sunset view direct from the room. The garden is nicely maintained. The disappointment was no wifi and the breakfast for whatever was left. The bed is pretty hard. They are building new rooms in... More

I booked this "Resort" after reading some positive reviews on Tripadvisor. I stayed there for two nights in December 2014. The rooms are just average, not better than a lodge. Room service was almost non-existent. The restaurant was not functional, as construction work was going on. This was not informed to us even when booking was made 1.5 months in... More

Problem with manager picking up the call and respond on time. So guys you need to keep calling many times and if by chance you are lucky manager will pick your call. Don't call landline because the guy at reception appointed for answering you has no authority to respond or comment on any thing.

I should have consulted tripadvisor rather than the Lonely Planet! Overpriced and appalling service. Guests are about as welcome as leprosy. Had to hassle even for toilet paper. "Multicuisine restaurant" is non-existent. Wifi is non-existent. Hot water is non-existent. Lift is empty well with water and rubbish inside. Staff watch you carry bags up three flights and don't help. Owner... More

Dont go by the name "Resort" it comes nearly close to the "Jab we met" decent Hotel. Infact the only Resort that qualifies as a resort in Murud is Golden Swan where we had our lunch and breakfast. there is no complimentary water and peak rates in December were ~4700 for a non-ac room. The only good thing about the... More

Let me start with the look and feel of this hotel... first u enter to parking area and look at it you have feeling that u r coming to an under construction site... Staff - most of them are locals who doesn't understand concept of hospitality industry; untrained and immature. Though they r polite and calm when u talk with... More

We were a group of 15 (including 5 kids) travelling from Mumbai to Murud. We had booked 2 rooms in advance each with 5 beds. The rooms were neat, clean and spacious. My only problem was with the service. The front desk manager was very rude to us over some misunderstanding with our lunch order. I wouldn't be going back... More

Hotel is in a great location, right opposite the Murud beach. This was quite good that after playing in the beach, we could walk back to the room.. We liked the food very much, we had vegetarian food. Staff is quite helpful. Room service is little slow,so if you want morning coffee, order it the moment you wake up, so... More

I stayed at Sea Shell resort for a day in April, 2014. Pros: 1. The resort is a minute walk from the beach. 2. The food served by the restaurant is good - but priced like a posh restaurant! Cons: 1. Rooms are tremendously overpriced compared to the services and facilities. The A/C double-bed room is priced at 2500 INR,... More
