Had a stay with my wife and kid at Ideal beach resort recently and should say that we had a great weekend!! The resort is on a great location before Mahabs and has a wonderful beach stretch as its USP - you can relax and spend lots of time at the beach with family and friends. Food and drinks also...

3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This is a luxury priced beach side resort with restaurant, pool and a stretch of Bay of Bengal beach. It's high point and and source of unfailing satisfaction is the beautiful beach. The disappointments are the slightly shabby rooms - poorly washed towels, less than gleaming bathtubs, and chairs with stained upholstery. The restaurant with a large menu is just... More

Just after checking out of this hotel, I was filled with negativity so I decided to wait for 1 month before I write this review. So now on much calmer note, here is my review: The location is the big plus of this hotel! It is a nice property, good swimming pool, very good beach side restaurant and cafe, good... More

We stayed longer than anticipated at the resort. Here are some things we loved about it - the service here is absolutely amazing! The staff at the restaurant, the buggy drivers, anyone at the resort, was kind and had a smile all the time - the room and the resort itself, is clean! The rooms are a good size with... More

Me and my family stayed at Ideal Beach Resort for three nights in the month of December 2015. The best place to stay for one good reason above all - access to almost private beach. The management makes a conscious effort to clean the beach surrounding every morning. The shower area and beach benches are well maintained. The rooms are... More

Spent 2 nights here and thoroughly enjoyed the resort. Large grounds right on the beach. The restaurant was great and it was just very pretty, relaxing and comfortable. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in this area.

The Ideal is 10 mins drive to Mahabalipuram, with its own beautiful and private beach and a lovely pool and garden. Staff are friendly and the breakfast and lunch are good, though not great. Exchange rate offered is better than most. Room we stayed in was a bit tired and needed doing up, and WiFi was pretty bad, but overall... More

My Husband and I got married at Ideal Beach resort Mahabalipuram last August. And we had an amazing experience with the resort from A to Z. After visiting a large number of resorts on the coast from Chennai to Pondichery, Ideal was by far the best place we saw: The rooms or villas are superb, with best of class standards... More
