“Good beach resort”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2014

This resort is few steps away from beach. Its calm , peaceful and you can enjoy the beautiful sight of sea from your room window. There is also a wonderful terrace from there also we get a excellent view of sea. The food is very good and you get lots of varieties. The location is wonderful. The rooms are average. Overall a good place to stay for a peaceful and relaxing weekend.

Room Tip: Sea facing rooms

The experience of our one day stay at Sanman hotel located on Alibaug beach was not something to feel good about. The negligence and poor service of the hotel staff came as a spoiler to what we thought would be a welcome break from day to day work . First we were kept waiting for more than two hours for check-in as the room wasn't vacated on time. Once we checked in we found that none of the stuff provided in the room were at par with the tariffs that are charged. The bedsheets and blankets were soiled, the geyser not functional, the mini fridge was stinking.

The room service was pathetic. No one bothered to attend unless called upon over and again. We had asked the staff to replace the bedsheets and blankets and what we got was another set of soiled sheets and blankets. There is no clear communication on the room tariffs by the staff which left us totally dissatisfied and to add to it there is a burial ground is just next to the resort, which you come to know only when u go there.

The only good thing was the food served which was the only thing to cherish and off course the beautiful and calm beach.

We do understand that we can't expect the kind of service we expect in prime tourist destination hotels, But I seriously feel that the room tariffs charged by these people are definitely not justified if we are to look at the quality of the rooms and service provided.

Room Tip: Check trip advisor

This resort lies just next to the beach. If you are looking for a comfortable and serene environment this is the hotel to be. These are like small cottages in a circle with a tree and small garden in between. I visited this place in April 2013 with my family and friends. The staff was very cooperative. They arranged for our dinner just outside our cottage and even they arranged for dinner on the roof top. They made our stay comfortable and happy. I stayed there for two days and food was of good quality. The rooms also fit the beach ambiance. At night you can just stay on the rooftop where you can see the tides rising. If I visit the place again, I am staying there for sure.

Room Tip: Stay in the hotel facing the beach. Make sure to book in advance because its the most sought after r...

Being a Mumbaikar always yearned for a nice,clean,peaceful beach and Sanman resort at Varsoli fulfils every bit of that dream. It is bang on the beach with couple of rooms overlooking the sea and others being cottages. if you are coming down for the 1st time always look for Varsoli beach and then take a left on the beach from within the palm woods for the resort. So far so for the location which I guess takes the brownie points. Now coming to the actual resort it is strictly ok with rooms really not in that good a shape.The furniture is old and ragged and the bed,pillows are clean but not really what you expect with the room charges you pay for them.The bathrooms are also very mediocre and need urgent repairs and renovation.All in all it gives a feeling that it would have been started with great taste but abandoned midway for some reason or other. The service is good though and the food is yumm.They also served it pretty quick which as per earlier reviews on trip advisor was not up to expectations but for us we ended up having 3 meals out of 4 in the resort itself.Not to forget pretty good breakfast preparations with ample portions served. The beach in itself is very clean and very much for the taking with only locals and sanman tourists visiting it but is very much rocky like other beaches near Alibag and not to forget very shallow with black sand. So if you are thinking of enjoying the waves during high tide on this beach then you are really not into a ride.But just sit down on the beach in the night or early morning and just keep listening to the silent humming of the waves and it takes you to deep bliss.

Room Tip: Go for the rooms overlooking the sea.There are couple of rooms just doing that and others are cottag...

Right on the sea shore Sanman offers you a nice quiet holiday shelter. Sound of the waves, golden sunshine and calming soothing breeze... The place is small but the staff and service is pretty professional. Go if you are the lazy traveller in search of a quiet and peaceful vacation...

We were a group of 6 guys who stayed at Sanman Beach Resort for 1 night in December. Service was excellent and location was awesome. The staff even made arrangements for a barbeque at the terrace. Rooms have a better view and are more spacious that cottages (we had booked 1 room and 2 cottages). Food was good but they order food from other sources if it is not available at the hotel. This place is right on the beach. You can visit this resort even with families.
