“Excellent outing at Sherwood Resort”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2014

Sherwood Resort is too good. It was great experience during the stay. Especially the hospitality & Courtesy of staff Crews, Members & Master Chef was remarkable. Meals at resort restaurant is amazing.

Room Tip: Studio apartment Rooms exactly opposite to the pool view at ground floor is amazing.

The room we stayed in was huge! In line with expectations from a CM property (though we were a bit concerned on this front since this is an acquired property). My daughter commented “is this a bath room or a living room!” actually the bath room with walk-in closet is larger than a few business budget hotel rooms I have stayed in.
The 1BR has only one bathroom cum walk-in closet. And hence can be a challenge if there are four adults staying. Suggestion: if you are two couples, DON'T take the 1BR; opt for two different hotel units, with connecting door inside. The property for sure has Studio apts with connecting doors, dunno about HUs..

Pool is just about an avg size, and water is highly chlorinated. But anyways no one goes there for actually swimming! Unlike other CMs that I have seen which have only Zorbing, there is also a small motor water boat here which the kids would love to get on.
The room service is good. So is the housekeeping. Our requests were met with a smile and with no noticeable delay at all.
Although, since the food was not up to our taste, we mostly ate out – many vegetarian hotels in the market. Couple of times, we ordered for home delivery from Hotel President (cell no 8275578045) who would deliver it to our room without any extra delivery charges.
The activity center is a hub for the kids (snooker/TT/badminton/carrom/chess/Wii/PS3, etc). Luckily, they also have OUTDOOR activities here (zipline, commando walk, river crossing, etc) that the kids loved!! Salman and Vinni who handled this from CM’s side did a pretty good job of keeping the kids enthralled and excited!
One thing that one must NOT miss out is on visiting the strawberry farm about less than a km (max 10 mins walk) from the resort. They pack you a neat bunch freshly plucked (in your presence) organic strawberry for you. The taste is marvellous!!
Also what is not to be missed is the strawberry cream. Whilst we tried it at many places, we found Bageecha (see photo) in the Mahabaleshwar market to be the best one!

Advice: if you are driving from Mumbai, take the Expressway via Pune, and thru to Wai. This is longer and costlier (courtesy tolls) but the time saved is immense. Not to say that this is a lot less stressful drive than the route via Mahad!

Room Tip: The best room location is also the farthest – room nos >600 – which are also at a higher point th...

This is a comparatively a smaller resort. Compared to other CM resorts.

Positives
Food. Pool and activity center are good.
Location is convenient to most places to travel. About 3km from market
Staff as usual are courteous and good

Negatives
Rooms need significant improvement. Very old and needs urgent refurbishment
Restuarant does not open till 8 am. So if you want tea or milk early. You may npt get it

Overall great trip given very pleasent weather, good roads and nice places to see

The resort which is now run by Club Mahindra is pretty well managed. We stayed in a studio apartment which was just perfect. The room was very clean and all the necessary amenities were avaialble. The lobby and other common areas are also maintained pretty well. The restaurant is nice and food was tasty but a bit over priced. The staff is very friendly and professional.

This resort may end up becoming a good place in a few years, but is certainly a miss at the moment. I fail to see why Club Mahindra would like to damage their goodwill by running such a property until they have completed the renovation. Its their recent acquisition.

The Ugly first - We checked in late night on a Friday and were given two small outdated rooms with bare minimal utilities. In one room, the TV unit did not work and in the other room the refrigerator did not work. The toilets did not even have tissues! All lights in the corridors/gardens were switched off around 11pm and it turned pitch dark. We could see people moving around with torches. We requested the security to switch on atleast the garden light so that no one accidently falls into the pool, and thankfully he obliged. In the morning, to our horror, someone kept rubbish in the open balcony of one room and some used clothes in the other balcony; which the staff did arrange to remove on complaint. And things got further worse when there was some issue with the shower that the water temperature would change suddenly depending upon the usage levels in the other rooms; and caused me burns. The hotel staff did call a doctor immediately, but how can you let things go so much out of hand!!

The Bad - Its a small property; not sure if they can acquire more land. There is construction debris all around the place and is rather noisy at the moment. The wifi works only at the reception and there also the signal is poor.

The Good - Their GM was excellent. We had made up our mind to leave the property and find another place to stay. He persuaded us to stay there and upgraded our room and gave us the renovated deplex room which were certainly excellent and in line with our expectations. This room was very modern and all amenities were in place. They certainly improved the service levels after the initial shocking levels on the first evening. The activity room is good and has a good collection of books and games. The turnout for the activities is however low and so most of them got cancelled. The loccation is great with loads of greenery. Its close to many of the famous tourist points. The pool is fairly small but cute. The food is average but we found one or two good options in every buffet meal.

If you must stay here, insist on the renovated rooms.

Room Tip: Take the renovated rooms only

we were having a mixed re-view of the CM Mahabaleshwar. However things looked fine when we got a call from Mr. Rakshit couple of days before our arrival and a mail from the Hotel about its facilties. As we were driving with our own vehicle , we were well told on weather and driving instructions, It took us 6 hours with a stop over on the way. however we reached nicely at the hotel and well received by the staff on arrival by giving a cold towel and fresh starwbeery juice. We foud one guy looking at us and earnestly approached us by introducing himself to the GM Of the property Mr Prarit Aggarwal. He was warm and courteous in his approach and made friends with our kids immediately. We were checked in promptly and shown couple of options , We selected room in the main block due to our kids. Mr Aggarwal mentioned that the Hotel is on lease and other renovations and offered to show us renovated rooms.
Om Prakash came with the baggage and kids went for swimming immediately, pool guard -sunil looked after well our kids.
at the Hi tea we were met by other managers who were warm in thier approach and looked genuine in making our holidays better
We choose to took a walk in the Hotel and found otherwise at certain places road being broken and slopes being there flowers were all around the property and really nice place, coupled with beautiful sun set.
we had gone with no expectations viweing on re-views but was in for a surprise. Resort staff were very humble and always looking forward to make our stay comfortable including GM who was seen carrying out conversation with guests and always ensuring that things are in place. He looked like on in charge. food was good , service manager vikas was always smiling, effortless hospitality and very cordial.
In All - 9 out of 10 ( 1 being not a CM Made resort)

Room Tip: if you are with kids choose the main block rooms as this is in centre of all facilities

Decent Resort. Swimming pool is nice and cute. Rooms are clearly OK. good engagement for the guests by the activity team. Food was not that good.
The resort is small as compared to other CMH properties.
The experience of Mahabaleshwar is the one which is more enojoyable, especially in the rains. So if you are travelling in rainy season, its an experience to remember. But not for those who dont love rains, as the rains are pretty heavy there.

Room Tip: Food is costly and not upto the mark.
