My family trip, last week (6th to 10th sep'13) was one of the best resort experience in Mandarmoni. thanks to entire Resort Team of Bombay beach. Service, location, behaviour of the staffs, value for money ....all were superb & deserves special applause. view from all rooms are awesome , sea wave slashing at the resort boundary. i have no words for the thrilling experience of such closeness to nature. Door step arrangement for para-gliding.

The first look at this property said it all - they are not yet ready for guests. This is not a resort as the name suggests - this is at its best a guest house. But at a very serene location - actually so secluded that a morning walk on the beach may make you encounter many a constipated fishermen in their deep concentrated endeavours.
They don't even have a proper approach road and the way to the beach is over some boulders - not at all a very welcome thought for old people and small kids.
The room when we entered had a wet floor- apparently the plumber had just fixed the bath tub - the toilet had no space left because of that apparatus. I had paid in advance for a cot but what I got was a mattress. But Vineet the owner was gracious enough to provide me three mattresses so that I ended up having a small bed. This was the best room in the hotel but it did not have a telephone, it did not have any toilet hangers in the toilet and soap rack, no geyser and no proper shower - one has to hop into the tub to have a shower. It had a broken tile at the corner which served as an open drain.
The menu was horrible and so was the service. Apparently, you may order what ever you wish for. They then try to source it in the local market. If it is available then it is bought and if not then they don't even care to inform you. You only get to know when you see its absent at the table. Ha table! they don't even have a restaurant - food is always served in the room or out in the garden. there is one sweaty cook for the nearly 15 rooms. You may order hours before but they will serve when they want to and that too after hours of prodding. The manager Pandey ji is a character, who will say that he will resolve all issues in 5 minutes. All those guests with a sweet tooth will suffer badly, no dessert at all as they don't even have a freezer.
The service boys are always smiling - which doesn't make up for their foolishness or lack of training. the will serve omelettes without a spoon, snacks without tissues. They never collect dishes unless they have a severe shortage back in the pantry. Cleaning up tables seems to be a part of the guests job. They don't start the pumps on time and during bath and bed times there is a hue and cry.. Sadly they even forget to switch off the pumps and at the din of the night you can hear the water tank overflowing.
And to top it all, at the end of the stay, I was given a bill - correct to the last paise but in the name of my father who was couple of hundred kilometres away from the place.

But these are petty things - I did enjoy my trip. the view from the room was great, the beach in front clean, the garden looked beautiful at night and the behaviour of the staff was immaculate.

Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you for your feedback. We take our guest comments very seriously and always strive to provide comfortable and friendly accommodations.
There are few points we would like to point out :
1. Mandarmoni being a new tourist hot spot, hence the infrastructure is still improving gradually. All major Resorts (including 5*) in Mandarmoni have worse road condition leading up to their property. However in our case there are plans to improve the small 200 mtrs. stretch of rough approach road for better comfort.
2. The way to the beach is not over boulders, but by a side lane, which we are surprised and sorry you were not aware of.
3. There has been a misunderstanding with the travel agent because firstly this particular deluxe room was under renovation and secondly we don’t provide cot but mattresses for extra person as is generally done by all resorts. However we did our best to make a small bed to make you feel comfortable.
4. By end of next month construction work (for Restaurant and new Kitchen) should be complete to enable you enjoy your food from our sea facing shack restaurant.
However we assure you the feedback of our hotel will be reviewed and most certainly forwarded to the appropriate departments. We take the confidence our guests place in us very seriously and work diligently to rectify any unsatisfactory experiences.


Warm Regards

The Management

Visited Mandarmani from 9-11 Augus 2013t. Right after a year of visiting Goa.The sea looked beautiful the waves were strong.The hotel was so near to the sea. We spent hours at night sitting on the boulders watching the tide. Hotel service was good though there were less working than it was needed.But the best part obviously was the hotels proximity to the sea.I would suggest not to take room A7.The door lock was not working and there was always water logged in the bathroom.though I don't know it is fixed or not by now.

Room Tip: Take room A6 for best view

The place is right on the beach with an amazing view of the sea from all first floor rooms. The beach area in front of the resort is relatively cleaner than other places on the stretch. You can swim and play all day and enjoy the beautiful sunset in the evening.
The staff is very friendly and will get you whatever you want but not on time.
A TT table and fooseball would be great.
I'll visit again for sure.

Me and my wife had a short trip on 29th June and stayed there for one day only. Although I visited Mandarmoni twice previously, I found several new hotels around this place. Well, I got the reference of this hotel from tripadvisor itself which I believe to be trusted. And really it was really wonderful weekend we had there. I will not call it cheap in price because most of the hotels here charge almost same but it is of course affordable. The hotel is still in some development phase, but the quality of ambiance is all perfect. The rooms are spacious and clean. Toilet is also big enough and clean. Foods were excellent from Indian spicy to non-spicy. The best thing about most of the hotels in Mandarmoni is they all are sea facing. This hotel is also no exception with big garden and sitting arrangements to enjoy the peace of this place at the coast. The serenity of this place is excellent as only a few number of hotels are at this side where the hotel is located. The whole experience was peaceful and pleasant as we had planned for. Above of all, we really appreciate the warmth of their services and all the stuffs were very curious to serve our needs. Highly recommended for those who are planning to trip Mandarmoni. The road towards the hotel is still underdeveloped but one can manage easily to drive their car upto hotel. We will surely plan to come back again if they keep their service intact and keep no or little hike in room rents.

Room Tip: The hotel is sea facing so no matter which room you prefer. AC rooms are hardly required as most of...

The best thing about this resort is ITS ON THE BEACH. Its clean, well staffed and easy on the pocket too. The staff is friendly and give you the best of service. An ideal place to escape from the chaos of urban jungle life. Take a night walk along the beach on a full moon day and you will begin to wonder if there was ever a more beautiful place!!! All in all, a place worth visiting again.
