we stayed at Maikal resort on 6th jan 2014 only for one night and kept wishing if I could extend my stay there by at least one more day. The resort is MP tourism property and the price at which it was available, it was a steal.... It is situated right on the bank of the river with balconies of the room extending over the river bank. It is in close proximity to the Bargi dam and the hotel (perhaps the only option available) is situated right on the reservoir. The hotel has around six rooms and are well managed, clean and staffed well. The bathrooms are hygienic, room linens are clean , room service is good, quality of food is also good. Right next to hotel, guests also get the option to board jetty and take a round of the reservoir for almost 45 mins at a reasonable cost. The hotel also has children playing area with some basic rides available for kids. Hotel rooms give excellent view of the sunset and sunrise.. I would personally recommend the hotel stay for 1-2 days if one is travelling this part of the country.
