We went during summers wherein there is a bit of renovation and less occupancy. It was probably a very good decision as we were pampered a lot by the staff and received all the attention like a noble. The pool is quite good and its a lovely breeze and views post sunset. Few Peacocks in the vicity add to the... More

We stayed here around mid July. As it was an off peak season, hotel was not much occupied and we were pampered by service. Our stay was made memorable with wonderful Rajasthani food. Since we were keen to have the local food, staff suggested us wonderful delicacies available in the season and then serve them as well with equal enthusiasm.... More

This is a nice resort with poor management. You can find lizard in the cottages, Dogs roaming around and drinking water in pool, hell lot of insects in pool, very poor response from service staff. Management in the resort are very arrogant. One day they arranged our lunch in Castle Mandawa, that was awesome. If you want a quite place... More

I had to pay for WiFi!! Hotel pretends to be top notch but is not succeeding in it. No cocktails. Bar, restaurant and reception not always occupied. Beautiful views and a great pool. Little quiet when we were there. Opportunity to take a run in the countryside. No tv in the room.

The Desert Resort in Mandawa features a unique desert-type architecture in the region: adobe buildings and bungalows with frescoes on the walls. One can love it of dislike it, we loved it. Definitively it gives this place its charm and character. It is also very peaceful, being situated in the countryside about two miles outside the town of Mandawa. The... More

We stayed 1 night here in December and it was cold. The suite we had was very spacious but the small heater did not warm it up at all. The bathroom was a little odd as there were 2 actual rooms that had a shower each but toilet in only one. That also made it cold. But the whole resort... More

The place has charm and each room is different and unique - design and style were great. Service-wise thou, it needs quite a lot to get better! Not really friendly, you wait and wait for everything (yes, I know we are in India but still)... We had to have early breakfast and they started preparing when we were about to... More
