A very average resort in my view and not worth the money they charge. It is set on a beautiful beach but the resort has absolutely no facilities on the beach. No food or drinks served there and not even a deck chair or umbrella. It has a great pool but if I wanted a holiday by the pool I... More

Overall a good experiance but would not go back. Property is good, location excellent. But lacks the touch of service. Very slow in responding. Food is very good. Though would have liked a bit more variety in breakfast.

Last week we (seven) people from our organization ICF went to chariot beach resort. It is worth paying. All the rooms are well maintained. Especially the swimming pool is really good and with its dimension it real worth to swim. Morning breakfast buffet is really good to eat. It consists of all types from north to south and continental food... More

The location is out of town, however very close to the 5 major temples. The rooms are very large but in need of a little update. The staff is very helpful, even those whose English is very poor. We only had breakfast which was satisfactory. Unfortunately the bar did not have much to offer, except beer, rum and whiskey. It... More

We were here during the Pungel Festival--not a good idea as alot of the staff does not show up for work. Yes, the pool is very nice and our room was alright, however, the food was terrible, the service even worse! Many times the serving pots were empty-most times there weren't any plates or glasses. That being said, I do... More

Perhaps this is what some mean of tired place! We all love practicing Yoga by the pool in the morning, then roll in the pool before settling at pool for... More

Stayed over Pongal weekend; this is the worst hotel stay I've had in india in a decade. The hotel overall looks worn-out and tired. Exposed wiring all over the place, none of the fountains are working, garden landscaping is terrible, pool furniture dirty/stained, and the hotel look & feel is wholly lackluster. The breakfast buffet (included in rate) was mediocre... More

We were a large party and only had a la carte lunch. It was OK. The place can do with a bit of cheering up. The ambience leaves something to be desired. The beach is simply greaaaat. The pool was clean and the change rooms good.
