“Rose Valley Resort stay @ Mandaramani: worst ever. 12th to 14th Oct 2013”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

We recently stayed at Rose Valley Resort @Mandarmani. We had an advance booking for a room named Crab Hole for 3 adults for 3d/2n @ Rs. 23000. But we were given accomodation in Beach House rooms which is cheaper in room rent by 40% per night as per their tarrif chart. We asked the representative on arrival at Mandarmani, and in Kolkata to give us equivalent rooms on the basis of tarrif which should have been Rs. 5000 per night instead of rooms having Rs. 3000 tarrif/night. But they did not do anything. Although it was a complete package, they went ahead to charge Rs.600 for driver's stay. Before the trip we had heard a lot about games and activities (water sports/water park) in the resort and were promised too. But acutally what we got was, the water park was only open for 4 hrs. 12-4p.m. and had only 4 rides and on top of it, the rides would run one at a time and the balance rides reamined shut. Hence one can use very few rides given the time constraint. Even the cable cars (rope way) , booting, bull rides were shut down. Tv was not working. The room's menu card had a living lizard in it. Though the food was good and the restuarant staff was cordial, their was no co-ordination betwwen the event team and the reception persons. One has to go repeatadley to collet every day coupons for all resort activities(food, games, ride). The reception didn't even bother to give requiste coupons before hand to their customers, so that no embarrasing suitation arrises at entry points of such events. There is no directions for the resort for at least 12 km when you take a turn for Mandarmani. The road conditions for the last 5kms leading to the resorts is quite pathetic. It is just a broken, brick road with hardly any habbitation, to enable someone to enquire about the way leading to the resort. The visiblity is zero during night. I am sharing my experience so that one can be prepared for such eventuality when visiting there.

The roads to d resort was horrible as the beach road is closed.
Property is v v nice.
Staffs are just doing what they are required to do, cant compare customer service or approach of staffs with any nice property in metro cities.
Rides are v good but the timings should be more children friendly & timings should be more for rides, v limited time & v inconvenient time for children.
Pick up service was v poor as the resort to forget cab & I had to wait with my child on the roads for 45mins.
Over all I would give a 5 out of 10 just for the nicely build property.
My name is Amitava mukherjee & stayed on 16th & 17th of sept 2013.

We visited this facility for couple of days for a break. Though the approach road to the resort was muddy (still under construction), the facility provided complete satisfaction and relaxation once there. It is right at the beach with all facilities for entertainment including boating, ropeway, water kingdom, swimming pool, etc. The food quality was excellent with wide variation. The rooms are divided into several categories as Conch House, SAIL House, Beach House, etc. with excellent architecture and virw.

Room Tip: Conch shell looked excellent.

This is an excellent resort about 3 to 4 hour drive from Kolkata (depending on your luck with the traffic). We recently went there for the weekend. While the resort is really nice and the located right on the beach, the 3 km stretch just before you reach there is horrible!

The room had a fantastic view of the sea and the staff was hospitable. They have a half decent swimming pool and you can buy swimming trunks for 150 bucks if you are not carrying your own. But I got bitten by insects while swimming - so they clearly need to do a better job at keeping it clean.

The resort itself is beautiful and you can spend the day roaming around. There is no bar though, so carry your own if you want to uplift your spirits. Since there is no electricity, they run their own generators and shut them off for an hour in the afternoon - so no electricity for about an hour in this hot and humid place (maybe thats their way of telling you to get out of the room).

All in all, a good destination worth considering for a weekend trip from Cal. They have watersports too. If you want some beer, the shacks next to the resort sell it. The beach is motorable so you can take your car for a spin on an empty beach - thats fun. All in all, I am now waiting for the road to get fixed before I even think of going back here. We were dreading taking that same road on our way back - it was that bad!

Room Tip: Go for the sea facing rooms, they are slightly expensive but worth the price.

Was npthing such great as per the prices compared to the location. Had visited the resort second time and didnt find much improvement, Stay was good , the layout was pretty decent. Food was ok not better than SANA Beach. I personally think SANA BEACH is better than this one. But its not even a bad deal indeed

We stayed in this resort for a couple of days. Overall experience is average. First of all do not expect a "private beach" or for that matter "Private space". The most horrible part is the 3 KM approach road. It took almost one hour to cross that.

Food is good. The water park is excellent. The attitude of the security guards is not good. Any body can enter the resort and they do not allow you to go into the Mandir with 3/4th.

For me Toshali Sands ..puri will be a better option
