My wife and I decided to spend our Wedding Anniversary at the Radisson Resport & Spa at Alibaug which is a comfortable 2 hours 30 minutes drive from Mumbai.
Since our visit was just after the terrorist attacks in Mumbai, our car was checked before we entered the resort.
The reception is small but has a good ambiance. We were offered a welcome drink which was soothing after the drive. The check-in was super quick. We were escorted by a staff member to our room and on the way she briefed us about the hotel and its policies.
We were given a pool side room on the first level. The room was a normal 5 star standard room with a 32" LCD TV, comfortable bed, work desk and a balcony overlooking the pool/lake
Like the guest in the review before mine has written, there was no in-room dining menu in our room, the table was not cleaned well - there was candle wax all over the table and the in-room mini bar was locked !
The bathroom was immaculate with good quality of toiletries which include a shaving razor, tooth brush, hair drier etc.
We had booked a 2 night package costing INR 22000 which included all meals. However to our disbelief since the hotel had only a limited number of guests when we visited the buffet meals were scrapped and we had to chose from a set-menu.
The portion of food that was served was dismal and when we asked for some more of the vegetable, we were told that this would be charged for.
I took up the matter with the hotel staff and almost decided to check out immediately on check-in, but for the hotel manager who handled the situation well.
The hotel has a piano bar and is a nice place to hang out in the evening since there is not much else to do around the hotel.
The person who plays the piano is very good.
The hotel also has a speciality restaurant which we did not try. We also did not try the spa and the gymnasium.
The swimming pool looked inviting with a sunken bar.
The internet in the rooms was not functional however I was able to use my laptop and connect to the internet from the business center. The internet speed was very good.
The hotel has security personnel at various points which was good to see after the recent happenings in Mumbai.
The taste of the food was pretty much ok. Some dishes (especially Chinese) needs to be fine tuned.
Overall except for the initial hiccup - the stay at the hotel was pleasant and the staff on the behest of the hotel manager went out of the way to make our stay comfortable.
There are some sour memories but I would myself not hesitate to visit this resort once again and can recommend this resort for a short stay at this property in Alibaug because at the moment there is no competition.
