“Family Vacation - Jan 13”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

It was my moms birthday and wanted to take a road trip .. we visited Tarkarli from Bombay .. fantastic road trip .. the mtdc resort is real value for money .. we had taken the dormitory as we were 5 adults and wanted to stay togather ... it was clean and the location is just awesome -- just by the beach.. we could just get out of the cottage and go to the beach... it was a great place to stay... Food in the hotel is expensive.. but you can always try out the home made food available in the same lane just outside the hotel... lunch at the MTDC was ok but expensive.. but the mtdc keeper was very friendly and helpful and would also cook fish purchased from outside for a nominal price ... overall the stay and the experience was awsome

Room Tip: If you are in a group then take the dormitory ... because the cottage can only accommodate 2 guests...

We booked a houseboat which is parked by the beach in the resort. Had a good experience as it gave a secluded feel with a terrific view of the sea. The service can be better. Bedding can be improved too. The rooms didn't look so good though. For food explore the area around. Hire a bike and travel around.

Room Tip: Houseboat only.

I stayed at MTDC Konkani AC hours from 20-21st April. The location of the hotel is very good, as it is located just near the beach, just a two minute walk. You could actually hear the sound of the waves sitting on the verandah and enjoy. Luckily we got a sea facing room, so could enjoy a good view of sea too. The beach is also very clean and you can have a good time. There are no water sports on this beach, which is a good thing as the beach is not crowded. We actually took a night time stroll in the moon-lit beach, which was really a beautiful experience. There is only one restaurant with very limited options, but you do get good malvani fare, with fishes, bhakri and all. There are lots of trees around the cottages and hammocks, where you can just laze around.

We also tried the House Boats of MTDC, which are quite nice, but you don't have much options to go from there. They just take you to the tsunami island and back. But its a nice place to have fun time together with your family. Do carry some games so that you don't get bored. The service in the House boat was really nice with good food, which was again Malvani only. These house boats have two rooms.
Overall experience was really nice.

Room Tip: Ask for sea facing rooms.

I stayed at the MTDC Konkani AC house from 11 to 13 May. The location is fab with the resort being bang on the beach but the quality of service is quite disappointing. There are no restaurants just a cafeteria which serves very limited food and does not deliver food to the room. There are no amenities in the resort and security is a concern as well because of lack of fencing and free access of anyone to the resort.
There are no shops nearby and you would need to travel quite a bit for even the basic requirements. The minimum fare that the auto rickshaw would charge is Rs. 100 and these rates are non negotiable. One would better off be using your own vehicle.
Overall experience not good, maybe because the right time of visit is somewhere in October November....
Water sports are great...

tarkarli, after reading reviews really helped me to get a wonderful vacation. bamboo house is very nice but only if you get sea facing rooms.. i got one so we really enjoyed the stay . it is slightly costly.if you have to pay for your kids also .surprisingly, the service is good.(in other Mtdc i was not satisfied by the service).The location is good, kids love to play in the beach.one should go for scuba, don't expect too much thinking discovery channel like corals but go for it . Ladies changing place is on the boat it self,so take one more pair of dress with you . they provide the costume, for scuba, snorkeling you can do with your dress and change later . I felt the Hygiene is not properly taken care of.Vegetarians should carry lots of packed food items like cup noodles or ready to eat.Dont just go by home stay options online they are not clean as mentioned in the sites, recheck details, location and then book it. Plan in December or Jan so you can have a glimpse of dolphins.but in may it was not there.Mtdc is having HIranyakeshi boat house where we stayed for the second day is wonderful experience..but let me tell you if you want to explore more places in less cost don't book it .they take you in karli back waters.. but after that you feel bored,if you want to see nevati beach, so many other places also you have to hire separate boats from tsunami island.(lot of water sports are also available) there is no point in wasting the entire day in boat house.The cost is very high for the food they give.but your plan is to sit and relax with family and friends it is very happy experience.Two rooms are there and the service is good but you should feel free to ask for options otherwise they will not give menu or options.you can sit and do fishing .Carry your own games so to pass your time happily.

Room Tip: In bamboo house , rooms on top are worth the money, otherwise go for konkani huts with sea facing,

The best located resort you can find in Tarkarli.........awesome.

A lot can be done with the place, the rooms for one........wish there were better ones. The food is good, regional specialities, really tasty stuff.

Looking at the beach, sea, food, you can only hope for better rooms. A lot can be done to improve the place.

knowing what is available in the vicinity, i may go back and stay here, knowing full well that it can be better.

Went in first week May. Tarkarli beach is an exotic beach. white sand. clean water. just perfect.

MTDC is right on the beach. excellent location.

Stayed in Bamboo hut. The bamboo huts are actually boat shaped structured with 2 rooms at bottom and 2 rooms at top. rooms at top have a deck - excellent sitout options. rooms at bottom have machan like staructures next to them for sea-view. rooms have a wood and bamboo finish. very tasteful in good condition also. bathrooms are super huge !!........ yet the shower is next to the commode :-)

property has a good play area for kids and the play area structures are in very good shape.

restaurant is also beach view. simple. food is good, though slightly expensive on sea food.

only problem - no room service. they may serve in your room if there is lesser occupancy or if you may be able to use your persuasion skills :-)
2nd problem we faced - bamboo huts are very far from main entrance where the vehicles are to be parked. we reached at a late hour of around 8pm. we were 3 families with kids and only 1 porter to trasnport the luggage. we ended up lugging most of it on our own. while checking out we stumbled into an exit closer to the bamboo huts - but access is through provate land. the keeper will ask for some cash to allow access...but atleast the option is there :-)

Room Tip: bamboo hut - on top - facing the sea
