“Peaceful holiday”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

This was my second trip to Tarkarli. Last year we had gone in August and this year we went in September. Weather was superb. Since it was off-season, there was hardly anybody in the resort. Unfortunately, the rooms are in bad shape and not maintained well at all. Maybe during the season they maybe ok. The resort has a restaurant and the caretaker Vishram recognized us. The service was good and the food was awesome :) Food maybe a little expensive for budget travellers. Since we only wanted to relax, we did not do any sightseeing. However, we have a contact called Shyam - 9422633578 who is knowledgable about the area and will take you for a tour.

Room Tip: Room 101 has a fantastic view and the first room as you enter the accommodation area. There is no s...

The location is too good. Bang right on the beach. The beach access is fantastic, Spectacular view from the bed and wonderful sounds of the beach waves. The beach was clean and uncrowded. Just one restaurant with Malvani cuisine and average service. We went with minimal expectations since its MTDC, but were more than happy.We enjoyed our stay and will definitely recommend as "must visit".

Nice place right on the beach which is pristine, clean & not too crowded. Excellent for Budget Travelers as this is great value for money. Any one expecting more can be disheartened. Only one restaurant & nothing nearby. Restaurant provides good, clean food cooked in hygienic Kitchen but lacks choice & options. Service is average as would be expected from Govt. enterprise.

Room Tip: We stayed in AC Cottage, the Boat seems to be a better option but has limited place. Check the room...

The place seems to be a good place to hangout for couples and family also as the resort has house boat facilities too. June, July and August is not the time for water sports lover however the pleasant atmosphere is worth a visit in these months.

The canteen within resort also offers north indian cuisines for those who are not use to coconut gravy.

There is a Ayurvedic Spa next to resort, worth a visit to relax.

Hi When i say heavenly the i mean it foe the location. MTDC has got the best location and bang on the beach. We stayed in the boat house. There r 2 boat house stationed at the end on resort each has two floors grond and 1st floor. Rooms in ground floors are very big means very big. Bath area is also big with walk in ward road. the entire setup is nice and gives different feeling staying in the boat house with bamboo furniture. Entire place is done with bamboo. This resort is all about the location in the night u can see the clear skys and gaze the stars.....with lovely breeze and constant sound of waves hitting the shore.

Rooms are clean and with all the basci ammeneties with LCD TV fridge and in some rooms they have bath tubs also . Hot and clod waters. Remember they dont have a returant of their own. They have a resturant givent to a contractor and they dont give room service......and resturant is at one end long way for room service....but as u know india works on jugad technology tip the waiters and they will deliver the food. Food quality is good sea food is good and fresh but priced high compared to other resturants in vicinity.

One more thing in boat house celing is of wood so if anybody even walks on the 1st floor u can here the wood sound. if u dont want to disturb ue sleep then go for 1st floor rooms but these rooms are smaller than ground floor ....but advantage is they have a huge seating deck area where u can party. we were group of 3 faimlis with 3 kids and we had fun in the deck area partying drinking dancing (carried own music arrangments). Over all it was fun stay with amazing amazing stays and with kids also we didnt faced any problem in terms food or stay. They have huge kids play area.

If u are a beach person then this the best place....guys am big fan fan of goa and go goa every year....but believe me if want nice calm clear water then this the place. Carry your drinks and have fun. Beaches are not commercialised and MTDC has its own private sort of beach with a security and lifeguard. You get firecrackers in the market so on our last night we bought some and had a fun time on the beach in the night kids really enjoyed the crackers.

Amazing place to be with your loved ones and have a peacfull time of life. Dont compare this place with Goa as goa is commercialised and lot of night life.

But this place is more of ture natural beauty......tarkarli is also known for scuba diving and snorkeling....one of site in india. If u are firt timer u can try ur hands with scuba diving and if u have done abroad then u can give a miss to it. As the place where they do scuba diving there are many operator and lot of water disturbance which effects the visibily......abroad u get clear waters. so first timers sholud try the expecirence its cheap 700 to 1000 bucks and prity safe also.

Room Tip: Go for boat house rooms they are priced highly when u compare the price u can get a good 4star room...

It was my moms birthday and wanted to take a road trip .. we visited Tarkarli from Bombay .. fantastic road trip .. the mtdc resort is real value for money .. we had taken the dormitory as we were 5 adults and wanted to stay togather ... it was clean and the location is just awesome -- just by the beach.. we could just get out of the cottage and go to the beach... it was a great place to stay... Food in the hotel is expensive.. but you can always try out the home made food available in the same lane just outside the hotel... lunch at the MTDC was ok but expensive.. but the mtdc keeper was very friendly and helpful and would also cook fish purchased from outside for a nominal price ... overall the stay and the experience was awsome

Room Tip: If you are in a group then take the dormitory ... because the cottage can only accommodate 2 guests...

We booked a houseboat which is parked by the beach in the resort. Had a good experience as it gave a secluded feel with a terrific view of the sea. The service can be better. Bedding can be improved too. The rooms didn't look so good though. For food explore the area around. Hire a bike and travel around.

Room Tip: Houseboat only.
