This is a Cozy place in Borivali West Touching the Banks of Gorai Creek...

It has 3 Categories Room AC, NON AC, AC with TV and AC without TV.... The cost Ranges between 500 - 1500 depending upon the room you choose.

The Restaurant is there which serves food, but theres a time limit because if the Kithchen is closed for Breakfast then you will ave to wait for LUnch... So you better Wake up by 10 the fod is OK no issues with the food.

You certainly rnjoy the Sands and Water it has a good playing Area and the property is spacious.. So if you are loking to Hangout a Weekend Near Mumbai You can go to this place.

FONSECA’S BEACH RESORT is one of the most conveniently located resort on Gorai beach.It is not only bang on the beach front but is also walkable distance from the rickshaw stand, bus stop, market etc. It has breath taking view of the Arabian Sea and also a picturesque Sunset view. Gorai beach is not only famous for its proximity to the city and the suburbs but also for its safety, as the entire beach which spans about 2.5 km. in length is like a cricket ground, and hence it is one of the Best Beaches to swims, unlike neighbouring beaches which are either rocky or have quick sand.

The best place that is located exactly in front of the beach and good service by the staff.

All kinds of people are allowed such as family , friends and solo.
Good times to visit are weekends.

Best location in front of the beach.

Visited Fonseca's Beach Resort in Gorai with my friends over the weekend! We had an amazing and relaxing time. The management is good with regards to the hospitality offered. Definitely a must visit resort with friends or family. The best part of the resort is their private entrance to the beach.

I visited it on 1-2 Feb, 2014,
i always prefer pixcy sea resort, but that day no rooms were available there and i had to chose fonsecas...
It was such a horrible, irritating annoying experience there. It is not safe for only girls group, the place is full of cheap bogus crowd, no security there, anything can happen with you.
I went there with my friend (we both girls), we faced so much embarassing moments, as few boys started starring, commenting and teasing us...continously..we wanted to seat at the garden area n listen to the wave sounds but unfortunatly those bloody drunk guys ruined our fun..we had to go back to room to avoid them, they followed us there and when we were seating in balcony, they kept on irritating us.
Even a group of old people - all gents double of our age behaved so indecently ,
could not sleep whole night, next day complained the same thing to Mr Ryn, the owner, he acted as if he is sorry to know, and said all these boys are regular customers and nobody ever complained against them...
so the conclusion is - its a place where girls are not safe if they go alone, or even with male partner, coz these regular customer will be there to irritate you always.

Solution:
girls you chose a better place - safe place - like pixcy, the tourist, n other resorts nearby,
and keep yourself alert always, have fun ...you have every right to move freely on your own..

Our family had decided to spend two days and one night at Gorai and we had decided to stay at this 'Beach Resort' as it was conveniently located at the beach. Unfortunately, I had not looked at any of the feedback on Trip Advisor before travelling to this resort or else I would definitely have2 stayed away.

On arrival, one of the workers had shown us a few rooms and we picked up what seemed to be the best of the lot. By saying best of the lot, it was basic and sort of livable and we thought we would manage as it was only for one night. The rate given to us was very different to the rates we had seen on the website. The web-site had shown rates for 24 hr stays, but the staff member stated that that was not correct (???) and that if we stayed from 11am to 4pm the net day, then we would be charged for a day rate, then a night rate and another day rate. Anyway, now wanting to walk away looking for another property, we decided to book 4 rooms for our family (8 adults and two kids). We were quoted Rs10,000 for the stay.

The next morning, I spoke to the Owner who I thought would be honest and quote me the correct charge, which to my calculations should have been Rs 6500 or max Rs 7500. The owner,Mr. Ryan Fonseca was not at all helpful and in fact was trying to suggest that the Rs10,000 that was quoted was in fact a discounted rate. When we tried to reason with him and show him what was on his own web-site web-site, he found a number of reasons to try and justify his price and even went to the extent to state that the web-site stated that 'Rates were subject to change without notice'. I thought it was pointless trying to go any further with any discussions with him as he was nothing short of a most dishonest person.

During our stay, we noticed that the advertised children's playground had one broken see-saw, one broken slide, no water in any of the pools, no running water in our bathrooms the next morning, flushes that did not work properly, an exterior latch on our door that could be opened without a key (even when locked), bed-sheets and pillow cases that were unclean and unhygienic,pillows that were hard as rock, and a wait of more than 30 minutes for a few buckets of hot water. (and to think that this in Mr.Fonsecas words was a 'deluxe'room).

The restaurant too was nothing great. Basic and average food for the prices charged.

The hotel overall was very poorly maintained and as we could see was mostly patronised by couples who would use the resort as a place to spend the morning and afternoon behind closed doors. These were not people who came to Gorai to enjoy the beach.

So, If you are planning to spend a nice time at Gorai with your family and expect a semi half decent place to stay, then do book another hotel. Stay well away from here.

I have personally worked in the hotel industry for many fine hotels over a decade and have stayed at a number of hotels and motels in India and abroad, but this hotel by far has been the worst I have stayed at.

Mr.Fonseca, If you read this, I do hope you take my comments slightly seriously and try to improve the quality of your establishment and stop being a disgrace to hoteliers.

I have been to Gorai with my Family and Friends on several occassions and have stayed at many resorts in and around Gorai but somehow we never got a booking at Fonseca's as ours was always a last minute decision and so on our next trip we decided to book in advance and managed to get a Sea Facing villa on the first floor. As soon as we entered the room the first thing we noticed was the evening sunset from the balcony..... just amazing. Rooms were clean and spacious. The exteriors were also clean and well maintained and glows up at night with lightings all over. The food was excellent especially their fonseca's prawn chilly fry... it was made of some local spices which tasted yummm.... Staff was polite and obliging also bit strict with their rules... Music was allowed till 10pm on full volume, then on request they allowed us to enjoy further on low volume. Overall it was a wonderful experience and value for money.

Fonseca's Beach Resort is centrally located at Gorai Beach and nearest to gorai creek (borivali) is also easily accessible from Marve (malad) or Bhayander.
Rooms are goodb though a little costly , may be due to last minute reservation. Food is good, but you have to inform them if dont eat spicy, hot food, as it is hot for those not used to spicy food.
The sea shore easily accessedfrom the rear end of the property and high tide brings water right upto the boundary on the rear end. Nce place for family as they have swings and decent ope space for children to play. there is time limit for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Rooms to suit all budget - AC with or without TV, Non AC with or without TV, family rooms for big groups. BUt carry your towel along. Hot water provided promptly on request. The owner Mr. Teddy is courteous and staff is helpful.

Firstly there is no fixed rate for this place based on how you speak and appear your charged, so speak and dress badly to be charged less.
Secondly the rooms are in such pathetic state that I preferred not using the bathroom /toilet with the fear of being infected..and the beds and blankets are made for a def rash and please do not even think of using their towel..
