During booking time it was nice & pleasant communication with Mr. Kamal. Earlier was thinking of booking pugmarks resort as it has not even single bad review and was cheap too. Eco Village has 4-5 bad reviews still because of its concept and photos i went for it inspite of it being expensive.
Thanks to Mr. Kamal for continuous help in my changing plans.
but when we reached at resort, Mr kamal was not there & Mr Krishnan accompanied us who was not pleasant at all.
This resort is very far from khatia gate and road are not good. also location is not that great.
also no directions from main road. Its 6 km away from khatia gate.
1st disappointment: i asked if you provide room service? he said we do but today we cant because we are short of staff. Although later on forcing he provided room service but it was not happily provided.
2nd disappointment: we asked for tea and that tea was nothing more than water. When i talked the same with Krishnan he did not accepted it.. he said our resort is famous for food. i said i had it and my family of 10 people is saying the same but still he was not ready to accept.
3rd good thing: we had bath in open swimming pool which was great attraction of this resort. it was clean and refreshing. also location was good surrounded by jungle.
4th good thing: Rooms were clean and bathrooms were also very clean. Provided 4 dry towels & 2 napkins in each room. Although location of cottages is better than standard rooms. Still interior and exterior of rooms does not meet 1500 Rs per night.
5th disappointment: we took AP plan meaning all meals, breakfast, stay. If you are charging 600 Rs per person per day for meals & breakfast i.e. 300 Rs per meal, you should strongly maintain quality and taste of food. But taste was too bad and quality was terrible :(. not at all value for money. fish was quite OK but veg food was terrible. and you get 1 chapati after waiting for 2-3 minutes.
6th good thing: gypsies were provided by resort and they were present on time at resort.
7th disappointment : Resort has given packed breakfast but it was not good at all. had done safari in pench national park were in breakfast was so good and along with fruits but here in village Eco, no taste, not variety, no fruits, no water bottles. 0/5.
8th disappointment: lunch at resort was terrible again. it was all veg, just potato- cauliflowers boiled in water. 2 of our members were breaking fast on such food. Still Mr Krishnan was not accepting the truth about the quality of their food. also same for chapatis, every person had to wait for 2-3 minutes for chapati. 0/5
9th good thing: again we had blast at swimming pool after evening safari where in we found snake in pool. which was not problem for us because we were staying in jungle and its not surprise finding animals there.we found 2nd snake near restaurant. again it was OK and nice experience for me. According to Mr. Pandeji, they are not staying in our home we are staying in there home. Strongly agree on this.
10th disappointment: Dinner was spicy but again taste was not good. although my vidarbhian members like food due to spices, i being for pune it was not tasty at all. Even no spicy food can be tasty but here it was not. 1/5
11th good thing: sweet dish after every meal was superb. also on request Mr pande provided extra sweet dish. Thanks for that.
12th good thing: staff helped us to carry baggage in cars while check out.
We spotted 1 tigress along with her 3 cubs. This was amazing experience. 5/5. Thanks to our luck.
We also spotted bison, owl, eagle, deer, barsinga, peacocks, wild chicken, wild bore, nilkanth, wood pecker. We did 2 safaris and they were nice. Some guides were good but some were not talking at all.
i strongly suggest not to choose village Eco resort. Better go for pug marks at least you will not be fooled for money because its too cheaper than Eco village and all reviews about this resort are good,.
