We arrived off season and next to no one there. Terrible person at desk talking on phone ignoring their only customers. No lights or fan on. Dinner was excellent but way overpriced. Pool and beach are lovely. We had to ask for towels. No AC turned on at breakfast. Rooms spacious. Bathroom stank of sewer gas on entry. No advanced... More

Rooms are clean but problems in plumbing and electricity. Nice location. Own private beach is clean and nice. Restaurant is average and has only very few options. Food is average or below average. Ambiance is good. Not quite good spa. Reservation response is bad.

'The good' is pretty self explanatory, the food was very nice indeed, we had dinner and breakfast there and dined well. The... More

My kids had a great fun. If the hotel management invest in some more professional hotel staff (current staff are polite and good, but they are far... More

My husband and I were looking for a weekend break in ECR before our baby arrived. Chariot and Ideal beach resorts were our first options. However, Aug 15th being a long weekend, none... More

Chariot Beach Resort is just besides the "Five Rathas" in Mahabalipuram. Excellent location, Very well maintained and a perfect place to spend your time with your loved ones. Room #210 (Beach Facing) - is what one should really take, as the others do not have a clear view to the beach. In fact the beach was around a kilometer away... More
