Matheran is definitely a unique Hill Station for nature lovers; & somewhat adventurous. Adamo/Richie Rich Resort can be rated as just the above average resort, if one is looking for a luxurious stay. We had faced a booking problem over there; as our advance booking was not conveyed at the hotel, food is nice delicious gujrati lunch, & dinner is also good. Infrastructure is moderate & so are the rates too, Service is Good. Monkeys are very much over here & keeps you always alert, as if one is not aware then they may even enter the room if the door is kept open. Mobile Network is also problematic as it is not available in many networks.
Sightseeing by Horse is adventurous & costly too. You need to check out the pricing before finalizing for the horse ride. They have declared it as Eco Friendly Zone but the implementation is not done properly as at many sightseeing places; garbage & plastic waste is just lying. On the contrary, even it is ruining the progress of the centre as transportation facility is not easily available so progress is also stagnant. The present system is also very costly. Partial withdrawal is required very much and it is the need of the hour, to keep with the pace.
Apart from all these, the sightseeing is definitely worth sparing the time, but you need an adventurous mood. One should spare a minimum two days clear stay for complete fun. Center is somewhat smaller as it should be otherwise. And as the other stations, it can leave a long lasting memory for the passionate people.
