We reached Ganapatipule on Monday afternoon by ST bus. We could reach the hotel in few minutes. Its on way to temple. The whole area is well shaded by trees. Shantanu, the receptionist checked us in immediately. We had lunch at the hotel restaurant. The premises is clean. It has a zoola where one can seat and enjoy in the morning and night. Good enough for seating two adults and not just for children. It serves delicious Amras (Mango Pulp) in Maharashtrian Thali. However, for Solkadhi, you will have to go Shivspandan, just across the street. The room was clean. Quiet. Has TV. Shantanu helped us getting to Malgund where Poet Keshavsut was born. Konkan Sahitya Parishad has built a monument there which every Marathi person should visit. Prachin Konkan is another best attraction walking distance from the hotel. Of course, you are there for the beach and temple. I recommend a ST ride to Ratnagiri via Kotawade, Nevare. Once in Ratnagiri, do see PatitPawan and Lokmanya Smarak and then Pawas. Its a day trip from Ganapatipule. Overall our trip was made pleasant with generous help from Shree Sagar's staff.
