“If you have no other choice”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2011

There are not many options for accommodation in the area, so we were not expecting too much. Yet it was still disappointing. Its best feature is the proximity to the beach. Worst was the uncleanliness; the dirty bed sheets and the grimy bathroom, the full bin when we arrived, and the clouds of flies near the hotel's kitchen. The staff were not too helpful and did not seem to bother about their guests, noise wise etc.

Tithal is a Peaceful getaway from our busy lives. Very small place but can be crowded with tourist on weekends ,vacations or days like Holi. 20 mins drive from Valsad Station.

The beach atmosphere is great but the beach sand i found annoying , As it was fully wet , very less or almost no areas of dry sand available.

Salty is a hotel located alongside the beach with almost all rooms beach facing. Pretty decent hotel compared to many others in Tithal. It is not a resort but a plain & decent hotel.

If going to Tithal Personal vehicle is recommended as after sunset it gets really dark due to no/limited street lights & rickshaws are also limited. If you dont have a vehicle dont worry you can still visit Tithal but travelling in the night after sunset should be avoided

Places to visit in Tithal-
- Beach
- Swaminarayan Temple
- Sai Baba Temple
- Jain Temples

Fooding Options in Tithal:-
- Stands / Stalls serving almost everything like the ones in Mumbai Chowpaty
- Couple of Gujrati Bhojnalays . The one near jain Temple " Darshan Bhojnalay" was the best one i found 7 would recommend
- ANd ofcourse the Salty beach's cook is also good

Good Things -
- Beach facing
- Punjabi Food was good
- AC , Television facilities available
- Staff is curteous & ready to help ( though with whatever limited resources they have :) )

Bad Things -
- No street lights along makes it scary at night to travel along & reach the place
- Food is not served in the room, only in the garden restuarant
- No credit cards accepted
- Mosquitoes
- Water is really really salty (i guess sourced directly from the beach) cant drink / bathe
- No additional facilites at all (Only Room) no swimming pool, no gaming zone nothing)


A bit pricy compared to the condition & facilities available, but the only decent one in Tithal

All in all i enjoyed my vacation at Tithal with the peaceful serenity of the beach !!!

Had been there this Diwali with mine as well as my friend's families.

Negatives (almost all are >>> !!! type):
~ Credit Cards not accepted!!!
~ A few kinds of Unidentified Flying Objects and a couple of varieities of lizards visit every room!!!
~ TV / Intercom missing in the 4-bed AC Room!!!
~ Some door latches fail to remain locked when shaken vigorously!!!
~ Bathrooms are quite large, clean but not spotless
~ No in-house Activity Options
~ An under-average Multi-cuisine Restaurant with very average-tasting Punjabi & Chinese food (Practical Waiting Time per Dish ordered: atleast 20 minutes)
~ Every single Service gets 5 out of 10
~ Can't go and stay without own vehicle
~ No Breakfast (except for hot beverages). Bread is served only if it isn't spoilt!!! For breakfast, they themselves suggest that you drive down to a Sanatorium run by the Bombay Grain Dealer's Association situated a couple of minutes away by car. The Sanatorium Canteen has the same Gujarati Breakfast Menu everyday, chargeable per item per plate (truly Low Cost):
Paapdi Gaathiya (The routine crispy variety available off-shelf in all Farsan Shops)
Jilebis (The slimmest ones I've ever had and really good)
Idli Chatni (Good)
Upma (Very Good)
Poha (not-so-great, tastes of Dal!)
Potato Vada (Good)
Tea (Good)
Coffee (Can never be bad)

Positives:
~ Tithal is a unique, black sand beach
~ Actually a recommended place to spend a quiet, beach-front weekend at the minimum possible cost - ABSOLUTELY NO FRILLS but still good enough for families
~ Had a comfortable climate during Diwali. Had to switch-off the ACs at night
~ The only Beach Front Resort (oops, Hotel!) facing the Tithal Beach
~ All rooms have Beach-facing Balconies
~ During high tides at midnight, you can actually sit in your Room Balcony and hear the waves lashing the shores! It's amazing!!
~ Fixed Rates throughout the year, no Peak/Off-peak Variation
~ Can be booked over the phone (by depositing 1 night's room rent in their Bank of Baroda A/c.)
~ Between 1000-1500 per room per night
~ Good, large rooms
~ A small park with with swings, slides etc. for kids
~ Near-zero Traffic
~ Just 4 hours' relaxed drive from North West Mumbai limits
~ Amazing road quality
~ Has 2-3 of Religious Places within a couple of hours' distance (for almost all religions)
~ Swaminarayan Temple on one-side (5 mins. by car)
~ Saibaba Temple on the other side (again 5 mins. by car)
~ Has a good 3-screen multiplex screening the latest Hindi movies at about 15-20 mins.' drive
~ Has a few good eateries within a 5-kms. radius. You'll need to ask the locals and experiment to find the best ones for your next trip.

All in all, we had a fantastic weekend primarily because of the beach, friends and good, uncrowded short driving experiences. Highly recommended for people who aren't scared of a few harmless insects in the room & an occasional well-fed lizard in the bathroom.

The Hotel is situated right on the Tithal Beach, which is a few Kms Drive from Valsad Station.

On looking around observed that this is oneof the Best Hotel in and around Tithal. The place offers...

Options of Room for 2, 3 and 4 Adults.
All Rooms have attached bath with Hot & Cold Water
All Rooms have Satellite Television
Basic Room Service for Tea and Coffee is Available.
Rooms are clean.
The Place has a restaurant with a-la-carte menu.
It has childrens play area and good view with ample of Parking space.

The Hotel lacks quality service being at a remote place. The rooms are kindof expensive for the type of service you get. But you do not have much choice as the options are limited. Hence if you are looking to visit Tithal this is the best you can get.

My overall experience was Average.
