“Good for family stay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

This property is near to beach and sea view rooms in bungalows are perfect for family for quiet and enjoyable stay.
I have only one cons for this hotel in terms of service tax charged in cash on top of online booking at the time of check out .
As it is expected that online charges consist of full amount.
I have to pay service tax of total amount to hotel management at the time of checkout.
I have observed this issue was raised in past also by fellow lodgers but no concrete action by hotel management yet.
Overall average rating I will give to this property.

Dear Sir,

Greetings from Abhishek Beach Resort Ganatipule,

Thank you for providing your valuable feedback.

We are delighted to know that you had a comfortable stay at our hotel. All our guests are special and we try to achieve 100% guest satisfaction level by providing quality service.

THE WEBSITE AND BOOKING ENGINE CLEARLY STATE THAT SERVICE TAX (GOVERNMENT LEVY ON RESTAURANTS AND HOTELS @7.42%) AND LUXURY TAXv@10% WILL BE CHARGED EXTRA AND WILL BE PAYABLE AT THE TIME OF CHECK OUT. THIS TAX IS DIRECTLY PAYABLE TO THE CENTRAL GOVERNMENT OF INDIA. THIS IS NOT A SERVICE CHARGE.

We have not kept the prices inclusive of service tax at the time of booking because in case of cancellations, it is easier to refund the customer.

Cheers

Team Abhishek Beach Resort

The Resort was amazingly good with sea view and a decently large balcony. The rooms and the service was very hospitable. The amazing white sand beach just below the resort makes the weekend even more memorable. I would recommend anyone to stay at this resort in a place where there are only 4-5 resorts in totality.

Room Tip: Take AC rooms with sea view

Abhishek Beach resort is a very good option for spending a quality time with a family in a very decent atmosphere.

Good Points: Staff is very helpful, resort is well maintained, cleanliness is good, specilly view from each of the room is really awesome.food quality is really mouth watering. charges are also reasonable.

Some improvements: TV Remote in our both the rooms were not working properly (it may be stray case) one more important point is on TATA sky no kids channels were opened, all other channels were subscribed but some child channels should be availble.
Need to add some indoor activities..


Overall very goiod experiance.

Room Tip: All the rooms are beach facing, so all are good

The Location of the resort is excelent. However I had a very bad experience. We booked the hotel for 3 days from the website. On website it showed 15% discount. but when we were about to check out we were asked to pay 15% service tax which they said was not collected at time of booking.
Rooms were not clean at all. There was a big Rat in the washroom. On second day they said that hotel kitchen will be closed so we need to take care of meal on our own.
Resort is located at such a location that you will not find anything near by to eat. So we requested them to help us get the dinner from somewhere. They said they will get us parcel from MTDC. Hotel management did not share with us the original bill of MTDC.
Next day we went back to MTDC and checked the price. We were shocked to see the price. Abhishek resort charged us almost double the price. On top of that they charged us service charges for getting the food from MTDC.
I would not recomend anyone to dtay here.

Dear Sir,

Greetings from Abhishek Beach Resort.

We are extremely sorry that you did not have a good experience at the resort. I have noted your problems and have seriously taken them up with the respective teams.

We are extremely sorry regarding the kitchen closure. We ordered food from MTDC for you but our person by mistake entered the bill in our system. Thus the rate difference and room charges got added to your bill.

The website clearly mentions a Luxury Tax of 10% and Service tax of 7.42 % as extra on the discounted tariff. You were asked to pay this at the time of check out. These are government levy s and was not a Service Charge of 15%

We are extremely sorry for the inconvenience and will ensure such a thing never happens again.

Cheers

The property is well located facing beach and 1 KM away from the temple.
Service is very good, just need to chase for things at times.
For laundry, would suggest to not give White clothes. My white clothes were stained and also the clothes were not ironed.
Overall a good experience.

Room Tip: Seek for rooms on higher floor for clear beach view

Hotel is conveniently located at about 2 min walk from the beach. It is quite secluded and hardly anyone comes there. Its also around a kilometer away from the temple.
Water is very clear near this place.

Hotel has other amenities like chess, tt and carrom as well. Crowd is also mostly families. The in-house restaurant has all varieties of food which we found to be very delicious. So we didnt had to go to any other place for any of the meals.

Room Tip: If you are a group of friends you can a 3 double bed room on 4th floor

Hotel Staff and room are excellent. The property is not too far from the temple. The Pradikshana for the temple is awesome, one has to go round the mountain that is adjoining the rear temple wall. 5 star to the resort and stay arrangements.

Room Tip: Try to book room no.s 304 to 308 - these rooms have an excellent sea facing view. The sea tides and...
