We had gone to the desert mandawa hotel along with my parents on a visit to our hometown which is quite close by.

the hotel has a nice atmosphere with a nice big garden as soon as you enter and the rooms well spread out.
there is a rustic charm to the hotel and the staff is also very friendly.
however, there were some areaas that definitely need some improvemnt such as:

- the bathrooms were quite old fashioned and needed some renovations. we checked out a few rooms and some of the bathrooms were ok so I guess one much check in advance as some have probably been renovated/modernized at later dates.
- the food could have been better. the food in the region is fantastic and there was definitely scope for improvement. I guess if you are a local traveller myself you might be dissappointed as the menu also caters largely to the large foreigh contigent that usually visits these hotels.
- also the pool was not very clear at all and the jacuzzi was out of order
even the spa was average.

other than that we had a nice time,
they had a special dance and music program accompanied by the buffet dinner which was fun.

i think there is a new properly opened next door which is supposed to be more modern and nicer while still retaining the old wold charm and that of the region.

Beautiful hotel in middle of desert with friendly staff, good food, and dinner buffet was very good with local music; room was spicily large with very big toilet. Lots of green area.
Excellent camel and horse riding. Good collection of vintage cars.
over all very good experience with kids.

Located on top of a small hillock the resort exceeded all our expectations. The staff is friendly and courteous. The rooms are traditionally done up from out side and have hand plastered mud walls with Rajasthani artwork. The food is exceptionally good and the service even better. Overall an excellent place to spend a weekend or more if you can afford it.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2010

Were part of a tour group, and were pleasantly surprised as it is in the middle of 'nowhere'. Nice rooms, everything worked, incl. A/C, and the bathroom was large and incl. hot water, not always available or working when travelling in India. Good breakfast, even though service is slow when dealing with several groups, and evening buffet food very substantial and varied. Nice pool, and staff very helpful. The atmosphere is unique and very nice and everything is at hand, incl. laundry services.
