“great stay”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

I stayed in Alibaug last year. I had the most relaxing time ever. The cottages were very spacious and the food was great.The village itself very calm, the beach looked ok but it was monsoon. i would go back there definitely

Room Tip: take the older chalet style chalets, they are very spacious,like small villas

We stayed for a Weekendtrip for wo nights in the tropicana resort. The resort itself is very nice. The rooms are very spacious and mostly clean. As almost everywhere in India, the standard of cleanliness does not match the European standard but still ist was ok. And since we are living now for a couple of years in Bombay we know what we can expect. The pool is very nice, especially the new one at the new wing. The old pool needs some maintenance and the water level was very low. The fact that some cables were hanging in the water from the underwater lights (the lamp itself was missing) didn’t give us a good feeling. Therefore we only used the new pool. Also the gardens of the resort are very nice. It could be a very good place to escape from the bustle and noise from Bombay. It could, if the service was ... simply existent. The lousy service oft he staff has ruined our little vacation in this resort and we could not enjoy the nice pool and the nice gardens anymore. It took the waiters over 1 hour to serve a cup of coffee! A coke was served after 45 Minutes. It took them even longer to serve some food. What is so difficult to take a bottle of coke out oft he freezer, take a glass and walk over to the guest to hand him over his beverage? There were almost no guests in the resort. No distance between bar and pool. Nobody can tell me that it takes over an hour to heat some water to make coffee! This is simply pure disrespect towards the guests. Andi t happened repeatedly during all day of our stay. But even when we complained the staff simply did not understand what our problem was. They were looking at us as we were some stupid idiots. But at the day oft he check-out some person came uncalled directly to our room with the bill to collect the money – although we were not yet finished with packing and the time of the check-out was still far away. When it comes to collect the money, then they are able to show some initiative. No, sorry, but this is a totally unaceptable behaviour. We defenitelly do not recommend this resort and we will definitely not come back here anymore.

We chose this property for one night, primarily because Radisson was running full.
The property is very nicely made, it has a lovely landscape.
The rooms (we stayed in the old section) are huge and well maintained. The new wing is not fully operational, but is quite nicely built with all necessary amenities.
They had rented out the place for a TV serial shoot when we were there, which affected the service quality. After several complaints, they were finally able to get their act together with regards to the service.
The food is okay, not many choices available.
Overall an average experience, there is gr8 scope of improvement.

The rooms were clean, the staff very frindly. food was above average. pristine clean swimming pool, well maintained garden. The beach is not too far but its better if one has own transport. Gr8 place for a weekend. We had two rooms, adjacent to each other with a common sit out area.. in one of the rooms, the bathroom was very small but in the other one it was ok.

tropicana is probably still a bit unexplored resort around 2kms from Kihim beach, which again is not a popular destination in Alibaug. But it was a weekend trip, just the 2 of us, with the intention of spending a relaxing and bonding time... tropicana was suggested by Just dial too...we were a bit apprehensive since the resort is not exactly in Alibaug, and also the approach road was quite patchy..Bt as soon as we entered the property we knew it was worth the effort. we got a cottage nearby the pool and a private lobby and balcony all at Rs.5500 per night,breakfast included...and discovering Kihim beach was an added advantage. Kashid and Murud took us about 1hr and 2hrs respectively from there. Food was quite ok (would recommend their Chicken biryani) The negatives were:
The patchy approach road for sure, understaffed for such a huge and beautiful property, lack of probably a spa/massage service which would have been welcome.
Other than that it was a time well spent, a large family will enjoy even better..we used to take walks inside the garden and played some indoor sports too...All in all....Value for money definitely

I checked in to this resort on 9th November 2012 for a weekend stay. This was my first time i stayed in a alibaug resort and luckily i got a old villa for my family stay. Courteous and soft spoken people, lush green resort, clean swimming pool, decent rooms nice tracks to around the huge resort.

Food however is just average, b'fast which is complimentary need some improvement (cold poha/upma :( ). Seafood lovers just hop in your car and 7-9 km drive to Hotel Sanman Alibaug (Gomantak style).

Another thing GPS is the second important thing that will help you to reach here as this place is little interior.

So to sum it up, definetely try and visit this place with family you will really love it.

I stayed in Ali Baug last year. I was on a business trip with my husband. We stayed previously to many many Indian hotels, some of them were much more luxurious but they didnt have such a personal service. I loved the cuisine, fresh fruit juices in season and the spacious cottages.I found the place completely relaxing and definitely worth the money. Overall its not expensive and there is few tourists there.

Room Tip: ask for the older cottages for space and privacy
