“The only Beach Front Hotel in Tithal, and good only for stay.”
Reviewed 20 November 2010

Had been there this Diwali with mine as well as my friend's families.

Negatives (almost all are >>> !!! type):
~ Credit Cards not accepted!!!
~ A few kinds of Unidentified Flying Objects and a couple of varieities of lizards visit every room!!!
~ TV / Intercom missing in the 4-bed AC Room!!!
~ Some door latches fail to remain locked when shaken vigorously!!!
~ Bathrooms are quite large, clean but not spotless
~ No in-house Activity Options
~ An under-average Multi-cuisine Restaurant with very average-tasting Punjabi & Chinese food (Practical Waiting Time per Dish ordered: atleast 20 minutes)
~ Every single Service gets 5 out of 10
~ Can't go and stay without own vehicle
~ No Breakfast (except for hot beverages). Bread is served only if it isn't spoilt!!! For breakfast, they themselves suggest that you drive down to a Sanatorium run by the Bombay Grain Dealer's Association situated a couple of minutes away by car. The Sanatorium Canteen has the same Gujarati Breakfast Menu everyday, chargeable per item per plate (truly Low Cost):
Paapdi Gaathiya (The routine crispy variety available off-shelf in all Farsan Shops)
Jilebis (The slimmest ones I've ever had and really good)
Idli Chatni (Good)
Upma (Very Good)
Poha (not-so-great, tastes of Dal!)
Potato Vada (Good)
Tea (Good)
Coffee (Can never be bad)

Positives:
~ Tithal is a unique, black sand beach
~ Actually a recommended place to spend a quiet, beach-front weekend at the minimum possible cost - ABSOLUTELY NO FRILLS but still good enough for families
~ Had a comfortable climate during Diwali. Had to switch-off the ACs at night
~ The only Beach Front Resort (oops, Hotel!) facing the Tithal Beach
~ All rooms have Beach-facing Balconies
~ During high tides at midnight, you can actually sit in your Room Balcony and hear the waves lashing the shores! It's amazing!!
~ Fixed Rates throughout the year, no Peak/Off-peak Variation
~ Can be booked over the phone (by depositing 1 night's room rent in their Bank of Baroda A/c.)
~ Between 1000-1500 per room per night
~ Good, large rooms
~ A small park with with swings, slides etc. for kids
~ Near-zero Traffic
~ Just 4 hours' relaxed drive from North West Mumbai limits
~ Amazing road quality
~ Has 2-3 of Religious Places within a couple of hours' distance (for almost all religions)
~ Swaminarayan Temple on one-side (5 mins. by car)
~ Saibaba Temple on the other side (again 5 mins. by car)
~ Has a good 3-screen multiplex screening the latest Hindi movies at about 15-20 mins.' drive
~ Has a few good eateries within a 5-kms. radius. You'll need to ask the locals and experiment to find the best ones for your next trip.

All in all, we had a fantastic weekend primarily because of the beach, friends and good, uncrowded short driving experiences. Highly recommended for people who aren't scared of a few harmless insects in the room & an occasional well-fed lizard in the bathroom.

Reviewed 29 December 2009

The Hotel is situated right on the Tithal Beach, which is a few Kms Drive from Valsad Station.

On looking around observed that this is oneof the Best Hotel in and around Tithal. The place offers...

Options of Room for 2, 3 and 4 Adults.
All Rooms have attached bath with Hot & Cold Water
All Rooms have Satellite Television
Basic Room Service for Tea and Coffee is Available.
Rooms are clean.
The Place has a restaurant with a-la-carte menu.
It has childrens play area and good view with ample of Parking space.

The Hotel lacks quality service being at a remote place. The rooms are kindof expensive for the type of service you get. But you do not have much choice as the options are limited. Hence if you are looking to visit Tithal this is the best you can get.

My overall experience was Average.
