I suggest that It is good for especially families. Excellent sea view...and pool.We enjoyed a lot with our kids in swimming pool.Good service,good food. But the only problem is about untidy rooms,not much, but comparing to others these are untidy.Bed also uncomfortable, it is very hard to sleep.Overall a good experience.

I planned a surprise celebration for my Dad's b'day, finally it was a total mess up. Very poor maintenance, worst service and food. Only attraction is private beach and swimming pool. Very smelly room and bathrooms.

We stayed in #22 & #23 these rooms are having excellent sea view, while compare to sny other resort or hotel @ mahabalipuram, as per our knowledge, good service at the low tariff. We recommend the service should improve in more in all the departments

Our team of 185 peoples enjoyed the maximum at the resort. Staff were very supportive and accomodative even in delivering our the last minute requests, they have a wide private beach with provision for beach volley ball.
