Good place for relaxation and nature experience. On highway east to reach, rooms are clean and good. One can taste local cuisine in their restaurant. Climate is very awesome in evenings Worth to visit.
Poorly maintained and Probably Haunted

Stayed in this hotel overnight a couple of years ago. Not sure the condition is same now or improved. But back then the hotel was very poorly maintained. Floors were dusty, Beddings werent clean enough. To add to that at night there was a strage eerie feeling. I was sleeping in a separate room and my brother`s family (his wife and 2 years old kid) in another room. I wokeup in the middle of night very scared as I felt like there was someone in the room. It was very scary. At the same time, my niece started crying in the other room and who was also so scared and took around an hour or so for them to stop her from crying.. Next morning we noticed that there is an open crematorium right behind the hotel (less than 100 meters from Hotel`s boundry wall).. I`m not sure if this was the factor or it was just us who were tired and felt so.. But I woudn`t consider staying there again if the hotel is as dirty as it was then..

We visited JRD International(?) in Nov 2014. It is a good property, but needs to be maintained. Food at restaurant is average, and we felt the overall experience at restaurant very depressing. So we began to go to eat at nearby MTDC's Green Valley Resort. Overall service at JRD was ok. I recommend selecting cottage rooms.
It is big but poorly maintained property.

Had been there around 8th August. We had researched a bit about this hotel and going by traveler reviews, we booked cottage rooms. Cottage room: -- Very basic room. -- Paint coming out of walls. -- No shower in washrooms. -- Hot water available from 7AM – 10 AM. -- Only 1 plug to charge mobiles that too at 5 ft height without any shelf or support to place mobile during charging. In order to match that height, we had to stack our travelling bags on top of a table. -- There is no phone in the room for room service. There is a bell but didn’t use it. -- At night cockroaches and insects come inside the room from the gap beneath the door We stayed in an A/C cottage but do not need any air conditioner if visiting during monsoons since the atmosphere is anyways cold. Property: -- One of the biggest properties in Amboli -- They have a swimming pool but it wasn’t operational during monsoon. -- Ample Parking Space -- Polite staff
But poorly maintained. The pathway to our room was very slippery due to Algae. I slipped twice while heading to my room on arrival. & I wasn’t alone. It happened to few neighbors as well. The staff told me that they cleaned the pathway post monsoon only since the algae will again grow. (Really?) I was travelling with a 4 year old, so to avoid any further unpleasant surprises, I requested him to clean at least 2 of the most slippery tiles. He obliged to my request and cleaned just those 2 Food: Hotel has an in-house restaurant combined with beer bar. Big menu but just a few items available. Food was below average. Infact it was very bad except for the “Dal tadka”. For Breakfast they only had Poha and bread butter available in Veg options.
Ordinary food. Average ambience

This is a neatly hidden place just before amboli ghat. Food is average n one can not expect much . Ambience is that of a local bar with slow service. But there is not much of a option around. Go for vegetarians food if u can.
