Greenwoods Beach Resort itself is very good placed within the tourist area of Mamallapuram/Mahabalipuram - although "Beach" is slightly exagerated.. The rooms are quite big and have enough light, before you reach there they are quite thoroughly cleaned. The staff is friendly and several of them speak good English. Within the premises you find - like in many other room... More

This is a basic, but comfortable guest house, run by a friendly family. It is in a convenient location - from it youcan easily walk to good restaurants, and the sights of Mahabalipuram - the rock carvings in the hill, the shore temple + the 5 rathas. It is not luxurious, but good value for a cheap price.

I chose this accommodation after reading the review in Rough Guide India. The room was cheap (400 rupees) but didn't live up to the standards I had experienced in other places in India for a similar price. The room was consistently damp which gave the place a funny smell and made sleeping less comfortable. The accommodation looks good with many... More

Spacious room and bathroom with a/c and hot water. We booked the deluxe room online and this was a smooth process. Greeted by Sinda (manager) who was expecting us. We had a massage at the hotel as they also have an ayurvedic centre. This was excellent. Restaurant upstairs serves good basic food. We were staying here planning the rest of... More

Greenwoods is well located, very close to the beach and its fishing colony, within easy walking distance of the main town sights. We had a large room with balcony on the second floor for 900rs including breakfast. Prices vary greatly, so it's a good idea to negotiate the best rate based on the room quality and length of stay. The... More

If you are looking for luxury this is not the place, it a typical budget place for backpackers. Offers AC and non ac rooms wit decent size, and the resort being an old architecture adds to the beauty. Location is excellent with the best cafes right around. Also offers Ayurveda massages, excellent and relaxing experience.

I stayed here with a school group after a project. The rooms were clean and air conditioning was most welcome. The family work hard to ensure that everyone enjoys their stay and they look after you with real warmth and affection - nothing is too much trouble! The hotel is conveniently located near to the beach and shops. There is... More

I enjoyed my stay at Greenwoods. I had a non-aircon fan room (in December you probably won't need air-conditioning anyway) with its own bathroom and balcony. The room was attractive, it had a double bed and a daybed by the window, shelving and a swing chair (yes!!) The bathroom was small, a bit grubby, but I am used to this.... More

We have had an amazing stay at the Greenwood. This family hotel makes you feel at home. The facilities are ideal for a simple holiday and more than suitable for any traveller. Now they have wifi along with ac it is a home from home. I cannot recommend the place more highly.
