Food Variety is limited...

First it is in the middle of highway construction. Sea view is limited to 2-3 rooms on 4th floor. No access to the sea. Food is expensive, quality is average. Rooms are small & dinghy. Bathrooms barely have space for even one person. Room pricing is also very high. Most depressing trip ever!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located next to the estuary where the Kali river meets the Arabian Sea, and with the Sahyadri mountains forming a backdrop, Emerald Bay is a full-service Sterling Holidays resort that offers some beautiful glimpses of an unspoilt, unexplored region of India. The backwaters of the Kali River add to the beauty of this place. Karwar is a great holiday destination due its close proximity to Goa. A combined holiday in our resorts - Villagio in Goa and Emerald Bay in Karwar, will work as a great way to spending long vacations with loved ones. ... more   less
