I was visiting Pondicherry for the first time and was very excited about experiencing the 'French' deep rooted in Pondicherry that I read and heard so much about. Mango Hills proved to be one of the best experiences on my trip to Pondicherry. Located near Auroville, the place is surprisingly too calm, peaceful and green. There were groups of people... More

We visited Mango hill in June. It was super hot. The BnB served our purpose. The rooms were airy and spacious. The swimming pool was superb and you must take a dip. Although the site says that it's a pet friendly place the owner said otherwise. Bad experience with previous dog owners. Their house dog roam arounds everywhere but a... More

Mango hill is located near by Auroville, the perfect place to relax and enjoy the beautiful swimming-pool. They also produce cheeses, smoked fish, dried ham... Have a taste.... Overall nice place to chill out, not far from Pondy

The best thing about Mango Hill is its Pool. Vast, Clean, Spacious and exotic. Dont miss the french movie themes and the cheese cottage in the backyard. They have great Breakfast, but the menu food needs attention and some how i didnt like the sea food and chicken. You can take drive to auroville from Mango Hill which is the... More

Mango Hill is a small property tucked away from the main ECR road. It offers Ac & non Ac rooms, has a fabulous range of cheese all prepared by them, a fine Indian chef who makes the best grilled vegetables I have had in the longest time. But these pale into trivial when you realise that Mango Hill is dog... More

Receptionist will observe you like a detective. Will keep checking your rooms, No privacy at all. they don't have TV as well, No beach view / good view at all. WORST PART - No room service / Hospitality sucks... Unhealthy food. Many more... look for other options. For a pondy trip have a better PLACE TO STAY FOR YOURSELVES...
