1 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Rooms are big but old. Mosquitoes kept coming in through the gap of the door. Sheets were not clean, had to ask to be changed. Breakfast was bad. Yes it is in the center of the village... but it is so tiny that it is not a great advantage. We wanted to pay by creditcard and the connection kept having... More

This hotel is right opposite to the Mahabalipuram bus stand, making to easy to locate. The entrance to this hotel is through a small lodge. On crossing the lodge, one reaches to the hotel. It is nicely built with a lot of trees and a pool in the middle with a poolside restaurant. It is the best option for medium-budget... More

Neat room, value for money. Food was not all that great but decent enough and the service is average to good depending on the season and the crowd. Swimming pool is the highlight! Very close to the beach and market area.

We stayed here in September 2014. The location is superb, just opposite the bus stand so if you are arriving from Chennai as we did, you get dropped off practically at the hotel. Mahabalipuram is a small town so from here you can walk to all the main attractions. The big selling point of this place is the pool and... More

I stayed many times in this hotel. Hotel is located just opposite the bus stand so if any one comes from chennai city by public transport, easy access. The hotel is located in very small area, but the way how managment used the space really appreciated. Kind of mixed (Indian and foreign) crowd always you can see in the hotel.... More

Resort was good to stay. Nice hospitality. Near to almost all places to visit in Mahabalipuram. We booked two rooms during our stay, out of which one room had flies and AC wasnt working properly. They provide good massage services.

I stayed in Hotel Mahabs for two nights while touring India solo on a motorcycle, and had a good experience overall. The staff are very friendly, always willing to help out or just to chat. There is a large, clean swimming pool and a good restaurant on site, which along with the spacious balconies make for a relaxing stay. Things... More
