First things first...the staff were very hospitable especially Abhijeet and Amir. Infra however can be greatly improved like our bunk beds were wobbly, Bathroom sink was shaky and too small. Food was disappointing. Ac was not cooling enough and the kids play area was badly maintained. Good things were - swimming pool was great clean water- very prompt services , visit in groups, discuss the menu before hand. Its good for one night stay. This property is beautiful but can be maintained better.

Our stay eventhough onernite at The Bob House Resort was an excellent break from the noise and hurry burry in Mumbai .. We stayed in an lake facing room on the first floor and the view was splendid! Beyond the relaxing atmosphere of the resort , the next best part was the fantastic but simple food and excellent service and courtsey shown by the team . Keeping the menu very simple but with a variety of food choices and made for superior tasting. The Staff were very attentive , professional and friendly. The rooms were Excellant with a great air of cleanlinens and very tastefully furnished. The Barbaque at the sunset looking at the lake were romatic .you could go on and on . The only thing I can think here is that people are trying to keep this resort a secret. Do not miss out if you are headed to any where near Pawana Dam . From my side I will visit this place a thousand times if I have to. A wonderful mini-overnight vacation!

I would highly recommend to visit this resort. Everything is worth the price right from food to room service. Do take the barbeque chicken. I would rate 10/10 for food. Friendly staff. Along with good rooms they also have swimming pool and both indoor and outdoor games. Service is very good, punctual and they will always assist you very well. They have different dinning areas and the view from the resort is worth visiting the place.

We stayed for two night in this resort and this was a relaxing place. The place is nicely located near the lake. A five minute walk to the lake and one can view the sunset and its a sight to behold. The food is excellent though a variety would have been most welcome. The host (Vicky) is very nice and is willing to customise your specific food requirements. The resort took all precautions on Covid with Sanitisers and masks being worn by staff all the time. The staff was really very helpful and did go out of the way to make sure that guests were comfortable. They have small activity area with pool ( well maintained) and has pool, table tennis, carrom, chess in the premises. our rooms were good with a balcony that had a great view of the lake. Surprisingly despite so much of vegetation, we were not bothered by Mosquitoes. The rooms could do with a closet to keep guest clothes or errands. Overall a good experience.

Very badly maintained property at good location. This one star is only for location. Else they behave very badly with guests. No sense of hospitality. The pictures you saw on their website and google is totally different they actual property. Once you go their they ask for full money first snd then started talking rudely. On name of Covid they are not taking any special precautions except spraying insecticide while you do check in. After that they don’t even help to carry your luggage. Zero star for their service. Only 2 waiters and one boss running this. If you complain them regarding anything- they didn’t care. Even at times they start fighting with you if they are wrong. It means we have your money. Now you do what you can. They are big cheaters. I advised all to never visit this place. It’s a nightmare. Rooms are smaller then toilets of any good hotel. After they cheated us, we can not do anything else except guiding others. So doing my duty. Never go at The Bob House. It’s nothing but a small dirty lodge with good location.

Thank you Dr. Desai for sharing your reviews and experience. First things if you didn’t liked the property you must have not stayed for 2 nights straight. We have done and done customised each and everything for you. Your wife and whole family appreciated the efforts of whole team and thanked us specially team member Amir for taking good care of them. But you asked for unwanted discounted which was not possible and threatened us for sharing bad reviews. But all other people and guests always appreciating us for last 6 years and we won twice in 6 years the best review awards. My review always speaks for us...Calling us Cheater and putting our property bad view will not justify. Thanks once again and take care during this covid times.
