Visited the place on 16th July. Location is huge and property is huge & adjacent to Indrayani river. You can just spend quite a bit time there listening to the river there. Considering it to be rainy season and chances of fungus and all, had opted for AC Deluxe room but to the surprise, AC rooms also had same things... More

The MTDC Karla resort is spread over a wide area, almost within a forest. The environment is quiet & very relaxing. We visited in monsoon season in July. The staff was decent & cooperative. Rooms are however ancient & desperately need makeover. We checked in over a busy weekend in a AC cottage (most expensive room for 2 people) &... More

MTDC Karla is located on the old Mumbai-pune Highway and has quick access to expressway. The location of the hotel/resort is ideal and area of hotel is very vast and extremely spacious. We took the independent villa rooms which had services as well. Food quality is ok but not worth for the amount charged by the canteen there. Peaceful and... More

The paint of the walls are peeling off ! 2. Poorly maintained sanitation and terrible rooms - nowhere close to what they show on... More

The resort is well built with good rooms but not maintained properly. We booked a executive AC cottage. The rooms were ok. But the water in... More

This was my third stay at the MTDC Karla resort and on all three occasions I got Garden cottage No. 57. We stayed there for 4 days. I love the peaceful atmosphere here. They have a nice water park and the rates are very reasonable. There is a nice play area for the kids too. The food at the restaurant... More

The property is very decent and amazing. But the service of the staff in restaurant is not up to the mark. Additionally the water park though decent is not maintained properly. I think the hotel should pay more emphasis on the service then it will be great.

This is a property where children can enjoy the amenities to the fullest. The major attractions is the water park which the property runs. Even tough the temperature is rising outside but inside it's wonderful and pleasant. All in all I can say the place is good for relaxing in summer and enjoyable in winter.
