We stayed for three nights at Ideal Beach Resort in their Villa Suite. The location was good, close to the beach, but the suite itself was a 32 years old nightmare, absolutely overpriced with INR 14500. Horrible wooden beds where you hurt herself. We had to call every day in the late afternoon that someone came along to make up... More

A good medium sized hotel on the beach,service v good also. Stayed 1 night and could've stayed longer-though prob 3 to 4 nights would've been enough. Nice beach front and the rooms were good sized,clean and nice balcony. Food was good and choice varied.

Rooms were were maintained and clean, toilet did not have the health faucet which was a drawback:( The resort itself has a good pool with restaurant, they also... More

A very classy hotel. We stayed in the Beach facing cottages, which besides having a large bedroom also had a extremely large and spacious bathroom fitted with twin wash basins and a jacuzzi! The staff were very friendly and courteous. We spent one night here and regret that our plans did not permit staying longer. It has such a good... More

stayed here 2 nights in december as a solo female traveler. Only ate breakfast in the restaurant which was o.k. but did not appeal as a place for a solo traveler to dine alone in the evening. Beach was lovely as was the swimming pool. If you wander into the fishing village next door you will quickly be approached to... More

This was my first stay at this resort and it is a very nice facility. I will recommend to everybody. Staff were very nice and helpful and we had a nice view of the ocean. Only thing we found that one of the water faucet in the Jacuzzi tub was broken. We ate in their restaurant and the food was... More

Lovely resort to relax. Courteous staff, uncrowded private Beach with hammocks and well maintained swimming pool and green area. The only downside was "mandatory" dinner at Rs 3000 per person on the 31st Dec. We were all vegetarians and not great eaters and felt this was over priced. In addition the entertainment provided was not of great quality neither was... More

This was my first stay at the the Ideal Beach resort at Mahabalipuram.

The guy showed up the next day at the hotel to check if everything was alright. Class act. The... More

Located directly at the beach. Very friendly staff, very comfortable A/C rooms (ours had sea-view), including direct access to a hotel-owned clean and uncrowded beach, with palm trees, sun-huts and hammocs, with staff constantly watching over guests while swimming and valuables. Very good reasturant with a wide variety of dishes (Indian, Sri Lankan and Western cuisine), often as buffet. Very... More
