Visited this place in April 2014 with friends. The cottages, though old, were very comfortable. The staff was very helpful and the quiet ambiance makes you relax. Food service isn't really something to write home about but is efficient nonetheless. New cottages were under construction when we visited & I'm told MTDC has started allocating them. They are even better.

It's the best that you can get there. Shouldn't be expecting too much of the hotel, but it's worth the price you pay. I would recommend it. Carry you own toiletries, the hotel provides as good as nothing.

The drive from Pune to Harihareshwar is the most memorable drive I had in few years , we started late night in scary and windy western ghat , with animals howling and no one in the dark it was real adventure. I suggest to keep water etc in ample amount as you are not going to find shops frequently. MTDC... More

We stayed at this resort because it was a well known name in Kokan but the rooms were not that tidy or clean. The moment we entered we had to call the staff for cleaning. Also the food was not that great. It was expensive too. When we went out in the leisure time then we found out that we... More

Firstly let me clarify that this place is NOT a beach resort. Its situated on the edge of a hilly slope at the base of which is a rocky shore. No sand. No beach. There is a beach towards the left but that would be a 15-20 min walk through the side of the hill. The main Harihareshwar beach is... More

The resort is located on the beach and we were fortunate enough to watch dolphins from the restaurant area. The beach is rocky and not so clean to enjoy... Food in the canteen was good and tasty. Sleep quality and bed material was also good

I think one of the good getaway places for Mumbai & Pune guys...sadly its not maintained at all. 1) The road leading to Harihareshwar is in a real bad shape. Be very careful with ST buses, specially on the ghats. 2) Currently the MTDC resort is under renovation & will easily take another yr to complete. The plans are quite... More

nestled away in a corner of the picturesque harihareshwar, the mtdc resort is located at probably the best sea facing property in india. but that's where it stops. the main reception area is an old dilapidated structure that could fall down at any minute. the wooden rooms that were available at the time, were spacious and really, really basic. it...

We stayed for couple of nights at Mtdc Harihareshwar resort and from location perspective it is excellent place. We surely enjoyed beach to the fullest, as we spent most our evenings on that side. Rooms are average and require refurbishment. Food was not good at the restaurant, we somehow managed having food outside the hotel.
