I have been to a couple of resorts in Karde and Murud beaches in Dapoli. Lotus beach resort is by far the best, so much so that I would stay there again & again. Super Deluxe ac rooms are sea facing (although the sea is quite far from the rooms ... In between you have large stretches of the resort's lawns and play areas and a lovely dining space). The resort is right on the beach ... which is secluded, nicely kept and serene. The rooms are spacious, food is awesome konkani and staff are very helpful. A very pleasant stay!!
