I stayed for 4 nights in The Grove from Dec 24 to 28. Resort is well located on the lake side and having very good lake view from open areas. Rooms are specious and well maintained with big balcony. However, Balconies are of little use and the view from the balcony is towards an open plot with little view of the lake. Only 2 rooms on the front towards lake are having full view of the lake. You need to close the balcony doors after evening due to mosquitos and insects.
Hot water was not a problem. Bathroom was OK, it was not the best of a kind which you would expect in the resort like this. I found red ants roaming inside the bathroom.
Staff is well behaved. Other activities includes pool, swimming pool, etc.. Kids will enjoy in the swimming pool. They will also provide fishing rods for kids.
This resort does not have kitchen with the rooms as with the other Royal resorts. Food is very expensive in the resort restaurant. Roti itself will cost you Rs 50 per pcs, It was just a medium size and normal taste less roti, a person with normal diet will easily eat 3 or more. VAT and service tax extra. As a Royal Resorts member, I would expect a small kitchen with the room at every resort because this was one of the key point based on which they sold the membership.
You can sit alongside the pool and enjoy the excellent lake view. Resort is good for one time visit if you are coming from long distance via flight. Next time, I would rather go to Royal resorts in Goa with better amenities which is near to my place(Pune) and has developed beaches.
