I booked over the phone. Reached the place to find they had given it away. Their excuse was that I didnt call to confirm on the day of checkin. I was left hunting for a place to stay at 7pm in dapoli. :(

This is terrible place to stay. There are 9 igloos which are in a good location which in the only good factor. Rooms and washrooms are not clean. The linens they provide are not cleaner. There is no facility of food. You have to order from a nearby resort. There in no intercom facility where you call anyone at the reception. There is no cell phone network either. So for any service you have to go out and talk to staff. For any service minimum turn around time in 45 minutes. The staff at the reception are uncourteous. There were only two staff at the resort mostly unavailable at the reception. The claim to have LCD tv and fridge in the rooms but there isn't any. Overall I fell in the trap and they spoiled our weekend.

A fairly new hotel and located right on murud beach.Location of beach resort is fantastic,you can indulge in the water sports just right outside the resort.Morning boats ferry you to show you a view of dolphins and one can also indulge in to sand biking and power boats.You also have camel rides and bullock cart ride on the beach.
Location of resort is absolutely beautiful.You have 8 individual cottages in the shape of igloo.The cottage is quite spacious to accommodate 4 adults.You have a nice comfortable bed with very nice mattress,and extra bed is on level one which can where two people can sleep but drawback is there is no fan on level1.The cottages are non a/c so you can not be comfortable in afternoon on level 1,only if weather is pleasant ie nov-feb then person can sleep in night on level 1.As far as cleanliness is concerned the the bed sheets were not clean,Bathrooms were average.
There is no kitchen in resort so you have to walk towards silver sand 5 min away which is owner of the resort for breakfast ,lunch and dinner.The meals are quite good at silver sand,The management is good.
Parking is not proper,you have to park cars on the beach,We had a tough time on that part because there was high tide in 15 th nov the night that we stayed.As a result the water seeped into the car .There were group of six gentlemen who had checked into resort that night came to our rescue,i would say they were god sent.They helped nearly for 3 hrs to remove our car that got stuck in the sand .Luckily water did not go in the engine otherwise it would have been a big loss to us.

The resort promises for lcd tv which not the case,rooms have very ordinary tv.They should install portable fans for level one and improve on parking and cleanliness of premise.

I would say this is a very new resort and the approach road is via the beach. The price which they charged was reasonable for 4 (Rs 2500 including breakfast) of us in one igloo house.

Room & Cleanliness : The room was very spacious but the bed sheets were not changed at all even after mentioning that they were not clean. However the staff were very helpful and friendly. There was a TV and when I switched it on it was creating a sound of a takeoff. The room had very good ventilation, one fan and 2 king size mattresses. However the problem is that the above bed has no fan hence it was a bit without ventilation. As an alternative they should have provided a small portable fan above. Apart from that the room is simply fantastic. There is no A/c but we have water heaters for hot water.

Food & Service:
They are also the owners of Beach Resort Silver Sand. Hence for breakfast, lunch, dinner we have to go to Silver Sand as they don't have a kitchen here. The distance between them is about 10 min walk along the beach. The food is decent at this place.

Location:
The resort doesn't have a direct road, so we had to park our car by taking it along the beach. The sand is pretty hard, hence no issues. The resort is on the beach and all the water rides, ATV's, Parasailing are right in front of you.

Overall: It was a fantastic resort and value for money during this time. However he was mentioning that during new year there would be a lot of rush and prices would be very steep.
I wish that the rooms are a bit more clean and especially the beds bed sheets and quilts be clean. A portable fan for above bed.

This hotel is excellent its good points that I found during my trip are as below....
1. Its right on the Murud Beach, as soon as you step out of the hotel you will find yourself on the beach.
2. This hotel is Row House type so we get complete privacy.
3. Igloo theme is completely achieved with great interiors. No use of Plastic, wood or any regular material in Bed and sitting area. They are made up of quality KOBA material. All the rooms have Gallary with Beach View. Each room have enough sunlight and air flow mechanism.
4. One master Bed and one small bed enough for 2 children. Room also have LED TV. Bathroom consist of Shower with 24Hrs hot water facility (Geezer running on LPG).
5. You can park your bike or car in front of your room.
6. Food quality is good, but limited options. It doesn't matter as you have other options in Murud.

Bad things about this hotel...
1. They charge you high with all above facilities.
2. I visited this hotel 1 yr back (in Mid of Dec 2011) and they have just opened the hotel. At that time there was no facility of Food in the hotel, we have to walk 10 mins to reach their another hotel on same beach. Hope in 1 year they have come up with in built kitchen.
3. As I mentioned it was just started room was having only 1 fan, no AC was installed till the time. They installed LED in all the rooms on our checkout date.
4. To drive the car in front of your room you have to drive it on Beach. Other option is to park your car inside their another hotel.
