Stayed in chariot beach resort in December 2013 with Family. Very good resort, although a bit expensive. Booked a cottage with 2 queen beds for a couple & 2 kids, but on arrival they allotted a cottage with single king bed. When we declined to take it, they were quick to arrange for a cottage of our choice - they... More

Not great. When I checked in, WiFi (supposed to be free) was broken and they charged me to use a USB dongle to replace it. Not many staff that actually do anything, no service by the pool, can't go on the beach past sunset, and the restaurant is shut down for about 1/2 the day, leaving you with a "snack"... More

This hotel could be so great - it is such a shame because the location is stunning; it has one of the best swimming pools I have ever seen and the rooms could be great; The service is appalling with very little English spoken by anyone. We had to wrangle an internet connection for the group. The breakfast was great... More

Private beach is clean and well looked after. AC worked great, room had amazing view out over the pool and to the... More

The place is well situated and the overallambience was great. However, the property shows some age and some minor fixes are necessary (for example around the pool etc). The lighting inside the cottages should be improved (not very bright lighting-hard to read in the night). The language skills of people attending the phones (room service, front desk, etc, etc0 should... More

I guess have shared the right title as this place deserves to be called a Riot Beach resort. They overbook beyond their capabilities and net result Customers turn to riots and resort with such ratings. Ambience: Great outdoors pathetic indoors. Curtains probably was bought when Britishers landed in Mahabs. Basic amenities like bath towels, soaps are made available only on... More
