“Amazing location but get the season right”
Reviewed March 20, 2012

This property has an amazing location and a huge dedicated beach. The beach also has options for doing water scooter and motorboat rides. Restaurant has huts which directly overlook the beach and on lucky days one can see dolphins jump while sipping beer in the restaurant.

We found the food from the restaurant to be good. The local fish pomfrets (called paaplet) preparations are great. There are limited options for breakfast and meals and one needs to give them the order in advance.

The deluxe cottage rooms are the best since they have the best location and views. The hill which has the cottages overlooks the sea and is covered with pine trees.

This is not yet a very commercialized place and is relatively isolated from the crowds. There is a lot of space for kids to play around and prepare sand castles. The propertly has ample parking and a kids play area with swings.

Room Tip: Select the deluxe cottage rooms. Choose the rooms which are far away from the road that goes to the...

The resort needs renovation. The room are spacious but arent in the best of conditions. there are frequent power cuts.
even though the resort is located on the beach,they havent made use of the location.
the restaurant cant be depended upon.the food is over priced fr the quality.it is advisable to carry some snacks and water along in case you reach when the restaurant is shut. you would be suprised to note that they dont serve malwani or konkani food and there is hardly any fish..
the approach road isnt the best either.

they can improve a lot on the quality of food and add some activities as the beach is lying unused and littered...

The MTDC resort at Harihareshwar is located about 200 Kms from Mumbai and has got a great advantage , its location! It is situated next to a very serene and beautiful beach and the residents of this resort have got private access to it .We were two families and stayed in two deluxe tents . There are 5 deluxe tents with A/C and a private sit outs and a clear uninterrupted view of the sea/beach. The rooms are slightly in dilapidated condition but were very clean with clean sheets , towels etc . They had cane/jute curtains which meant hardly any privacy ( u can see through very easily through them!!!).The private sit out is an excellent place to enjoy breezy evenings with some beer .The water is absolutely clean and even though the sand is clean and fine , the down part is that its almost black and muddy . We could hardly see any persons enjoying themselves at the beach as you would expect at a beach . However the good part is that they have water sports there at reasonable rates , water scooter which is just too good at Rs 100 per person and a boat ride at Rs 100 per person . Both were worth the money and all of us really enjoyed the thrill of riding on a water scooter on the waves ! They had life jackets for the adults but no special lifejackets for the children ( adult lifejackets for kids too).They have a single restaurant , named Grasshopper . The sitting area is basically two shaded areas with a very good view of the sea and has plastic chairs . They seem to be understaffed on weekends . They have wide choice of food . The taste was okay ( nothing great to speak about) . The service was good , however they need to have more staff on the crowded weekends as well as improve the quality of the chairs and tables.They have their own poultry farm also and serve at the rooms at a nominal charge of rs 25.Even though the resort is a government property , the staff were caring and helpful.The place is quite green , with lots of tress next to the tents.Evenings/ nights specially become very quiet and deserted. There is a small kids play area with slides , see saws and swings . There is a famous Shiva temple in the town . We went there around 9 pm and were lucky to attend the aarti .There are some small shops and eateries on the way to the temple , selling everything from aam papad to toys .There is ample scope for improvement here but being a government property , its still a great deal . Do not go there with high expectations ( of 5 star amenities ) and you will be pleasantly surprised .

Room Tip: Book one of the 5 a/c deluxe tents for a terrific view of the sea .

As usual MTDC gets the privilege of the best property at any locations. The property is just next to the beach with a private beach access and around a km pristine beach with white sand and rocky beach. We stayed in the Delux tents which is just next to the beach with a very good view. It was very pleasant during the evenings.Sitting on Private sitout area and chilling was an awesome experience. Best part about the property was although being a govt. property, the staffs were very nice and co-operative. my special thnx to the incharge of the property Mr. Karanjee. Food served by grassopher inn was really good and we enjoyed all our meals. My son is 1 yr 6 months old, even he did not have any issue in having the food served by the inn (as per our requirement). The dining area was just next to the beach with a very good view and dining there was another experience by itself. The overall experience was really great.

Room Tip: Delux tents to be chosen as the view of the sea from the rooms are best. also the restaurant is near...

Just like every other MTDC resort, this one also has a Location advantage; it is situated right next to the sea with beautiful views and lush green surroundings.
We stayed in Tent House and it was a good experience. Clean Bed-Sheets, Bed and Toilets.
OK experience for a person with minimum expectations. The overall property is very good; however Food Quality, taste and variety in the Restaurant can be improved. Slightly expensive food items. The Restaurant sitting place is just too good (only location wise as there were just plastic chairs and a Table kept)
Even though the experience was satisfactory, I still feel that the property is underutilized and could be maintained better.

Room Tip: Please select a deluxe tent with a SEA view.

Harihareshwar is situated on beautifull Konkan Coast, we reached the resort after 4hrs drive from Mumbai,in the afternoon and the check-in was smooth and stayed at Konkani House A/C, decently big enough for a family of 3.

The resort surrounds itself in nice & green environment!
Retaurant location was decent with a view of the beach, and the food quality was also decent.

Harihareshwar is also famous for beautiful Shiva Temple along the beach. After the visit to temple, we visited the black sand beach had good time.

Nice place for short visit and can be enjoyed more with a group.

Harihareshwar is a nice tourist destination located in konkan coast in Maharashtra.Harihareshwar is also known as Dakshin Kashi.Harihareshwar is about 220kms from Mumbai by road.You have to take the Mumbai Goa highway from Panvel and drive via Nagothane to reach Mangaon.Mangaon is about 30 kms from Nagothane.At Mangaon take a right turn to proceed towards Harihareshwar which is about 65 kms via Morba route from Mangaon.We started from Mumbai at 6.30am and reach the Mtdc resort by 12.00 noon.The location of the Mtdc beach resort at harihareshwar is an excellent location.There are option of both AC and non AC rooms,Konkani AC rooms and AC tents.The facilities are basic like any other MTDC resort.The staff are courteous and the Restaurant food is excellent.The TV in the room had cable connection and you could see all the channels.The beach is beautiful but not suitable for swimming as it is rocky and black sand.But you could do motor boating.

Room Tip: Go for the Konkani AC rooms .
