“Good Ambience, Better Food, Best Service, Worst Maintenance”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2011

@ Rs.3500/ per AC Cottage on Weekend this seemed to be a So-So Deal as the Rooms were not maintained properly. Toilets were clean though, but AC were not cooling enough.
Food though was Good and Service was Excellent especially by Thapaji who served Hot Food Items eon our Table even though there was a Buffet.

The attached bathroom is very simple.
Staff is not very friendly, tea was not good. The little music stopped only at 11pm and was always the same, it was so upsetting, could not sleep ! hopefully it stopped.
At night, lights are not enough so we had to walk in the total dark when we went out of our cottage (and there were steps, hum hum...).
BUT beach is very close by, and this Dive Agar beach is good : loooong !
AC cottage have wooden floor, which is charming. We cannot see the sea but the view is nice : lots of greenery.

Names are often Misleading, and the Exotica Beach Resort takes full privilege in taking benefit from the same.

From dirty and stained linens to un swept flooring to a non working Air Conditioner, the trip was a full of misery. We heard some good things about this place and were ready to pay the paid an exorbitant amount for this hotel. And that is where the whole foolishness of taking this trip started.

The road from Pune, was an adventure all along, for a good kilometer you are driving on Mud and Gravel road as the normal tarred roads go missing and you are left to wonder at start 'Was it a Good Idea'.

The adventure does not end there, as soon as we enter ghats, the rocks start falling on the road and to our dismay there was no network or emergency number mentioned that we could reach on that could help us. The roads are narrower even than the streets of Chandni Chowk in New Delhi.

And as soon as you enter Dive Agar, you enter a dumpyard named 'Exotica Beach Resort' the place filthy. The Restaurant which happens to be the best in town does not serve you 80% of the dishes in it's menu, so you again think 'Was it a Good Idea' yo come here.

Then the so called awesome beach which is muddy, lifeless, with no life guards and eve teasers you are really now cursing yourself and saying 'Yes, this wasn't a good idea,'

We reached at 12 noon and left as early as 7 am to just move out of the place which was as Un-EXOTIC as this.

I would be

We visited this place with our friends during mid june. The place was so bad that we had to cut our trip short by a day. The beach which was the highlight of the resort turned out to be very dirty. The rooms are extremely small and damp. It was hot and the A/C did not work. The toilet was dirty and the even the bed linen had stains. We had to ask the house keeping to change the linens even though they said that they had changed it before we reached. The only good thing about the resort is that there is a lot of greenery around and the food in their restaurant was good. I will not recommend this place for families with small children/infants. Its not worth for the money they charge for the cottages and definitely not worth in summer.

Nice A/C rooms near beach. Generally other resorts in Dive Agar are situated far away from beach, this one has it's unique advantage of being in the vicinity of the beach.
Cost is little high however the quality of accomodation and food is good.
