MTDC Beach Resort Ganapatipule
Ranked #2 of 8 Hotels in Ganpatipule
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 5, 2010

Ganpatipule is a sea side village around 35-40 kms from Ratnagiri along the konkan coast of Maharashtra. Its a small place with very good clean beach & famous Ganesha temple on the beach.

We were looking out for a quiet place away from Mumbai city without maddening crowds & Ganpatipule turned out to be an apt choice. I booked the MTDC Resort from their website http://www.maharashtratourism.gov.in , the online booking feature was a much needed to enjoy all the resorts that MTDC has around Maharashtra. Please book as early as possible since MTDC resorts aren't very big & are in good demand for most part of the year.

MTDC resort at Ganpatipule is just opposite to the beach, the whole of the beach is visible from most of the rooms here. I had opted for Sea View Deluxe Room AC since that was the only option available at the time of booking.

The room was good with a marvelous view to the sea & the beach. MTDC resorts are not known for good upkeep of the rooms but i was a little surprised this time around, found the rooms to be better & also maintained well.

The restaurant here was OK with basic menu options but since we were traveling around we always had options.

One can also visit Ratnagiri especially the port which is on a small hill & one side facing the sea. Check the attached photo of the Ratnagiri fort.

MTDC Ganpatiphule is one of the best beach resort in maharashtra.We had visited it in March 2010.We started from Mumbai on 24th and took the night train to Goa.Got down at Ratnagiri early next morning and took a state transport bus(private vehicles are also available outside ratnagiri station) to ganpati phule.We had booked booked a deluxe room for Rs 1300/-per day(off season rate).The room was clean and nice.the best part was that the beach could be viewed from the balcony itself(see photographs).In fact every room has a view to the beach.The beach is just a minutes walk from the room.It is very clean,not crowded,and safe.The ganesh temple is nearby.Dont forget to take afternoon prasad from the temple.The resorts restaurant Tarang is nice but slightly expensive.Other good restaurants nearby are available.
On 26th We went on a guided trip to places like prachin konkan,poet keshavsoot's home,and to Ratnagiri.In Ratnagiri we saw many places including,Lokmanya Tilak's birthplace,Thibapalace,etc.The guided tour was really good and would recommend it to all.
On 27th morning we took a bus back to Mumbai.It was really a memorable trip to this beach resort.

Location right on the beach with excellent view from all rooms is the only USP.
Rooms were bad. paints peeling off . .lizards in room. Toilets stinking
Food was good but the ambiance was missing.
Would recommend only for its location

we visited ganpatipule beach resort in last week of october.we checked into konkani huts which had just opened a week before(they shut in monsoon),what an army of insects that we found in the huts.we had to call housekeeping guy to get that cleaned,soon after that we left to have lunch at their restaurant.as soon as i was over with my meal,i got a terrible allergy all over my face.no body came to my rescue even after complaining it to them.Luckily i was carrying some anti allergic pills that rescued but no help or apology whatsoever from them.we got the rooms changed to deluxe seafacing room by paying the difference.another surprise awaiting we saw a three foot long snake very close to the room but again complaints to fall on deaf ears.Thay descibe it that they are close to nature,and they are very used to seeing all creepy reptiles.
Resort location is very good,but place is not at all maintained.they are sitting on golden eggs but they fail to maintain it.

I visited there in October along with my friends. We booked Konkani houses which is around 0.5 km from MTDC resort. Konkani houses are a part of MTDC resort and we had booked it by visiting MTDC website. It cost us around Rs. 1500 per night. Book early if you are planning to stay on weekends. The resort is 100 metres away from the beach(actually on the beach) and the beaches were clean(virgin beach i must say). You can take a long walk on the clean beach. Water sports were available but not great compared to other places like Goa(water sports). Room service is not available. But resturant is nearby. There are also museums nearby if you are interested.

We stopped for one night stay at this resort on our way back form Goa.

We didnt have a booking and we were shown two AC rooms. The rooms had severe water seepage problem and the view was also not too good as they were a bit behind.

Anyway we setteled for a NON AC deluxe room. The room was dusty and had fallen hair. The ash tray contained ash of cigarette stubs. The staff cleaned the same with much grunting.

The towels were torn and worn out. The bed sheets were old and dirty. The bathroom tiles had turned ugly in few patches.

The only thing to write about is the location. The hotel is perched on a hill overlooking the Arabain sea. The view from the room is quite pleasent. It can be improved provided some trees which are spoiling the view can be pruned a little.

Besides the check out time is 0900H the next day. After sucha demoralising experience we were on the road by 0830H the next day.

This resort has the potential to improve. If only its hygiene and linen can be taken care of it would be a great place to stay.
