“Surely a Thumbs up..!! :-)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

Initially i was very tensed and did a lot of research to zero down on a resort which would serve our GROUP of 25 People.
I must say it was not an easy task of finalising Indeco, i initially was looking forward to Blue Bay Beach Resort but then i read some really bad reviews about it. So i was looking for a resort which was:
a, Right on the Beach
b. Neat Rooms
c. Handle a Group
d. Within our budget

I can Happily say Indeco fulfilled all of this, but since it had mixed reviews on Tripadvisor i was sceptic abt it, still i took a chance and Gambled.

Now when we reached the resort, it was quite late 22:30, but the Manager Mr Mugesh held a very very Tasty Dinner (North Indian) for us, I must say the food was very very Good in Taste and in Variety.
The rooms were very neatly done and the Property is very good i must say.The activity area, the sit out swimming pool, the sit outs and ESPECIALLY THE RESORTS PRIVATE ENTRY INTO THE BEACH.
When u stay as a Family Group you have all types of Needs for children and for females, the Staff and especially Mr Mugesh FULFILLED EACH AND EVERY ONE WITH A SMILE.
The kind of North Indian Food served is Surely ABOVE AVERAGE, its very very good

Conclusion:Loved the experience, will visit again.

the rooms were smelly and were forced to move to a different room. was not given the promised room although i had made a reservation and confirmed it well in advance. the morning breakfast was bad, everything served was cold and upon complaining, didnt get any response and no one was bothered either... i wouldnt recommend this place....

Room Tip: do not go in for the suite rooms, they are bad and not worth the money they charge...

The ambiance & the food was good...liked the fish curry the most. The decoration is mind blowing. I liked the behavior and service. Would like to stay their some time in future if I visit this place again.

We spent 1 night with our friends from france. The hotel is in walking distance from the shore temple and the beach is a few minutes walk. The rooms were nice and comfortable & clean. Special thanks to the team to organise last minute birthday cake which was very good. Will recommend friends this place.

Room Tip: Do request for cottage rooms as they are quieter.

There are some nice rooms, and some incredibly run-down rooms -- we spent one bad night in a mosquito-infested, dirty room with mould in the shower and paint coming off the walls...and then we asked to be moved...and got a much nicer room, same price. I thought that the staff were quite friendly and helpful...and the location was good.

Room Tip: I would ask to see the room first...perhaps ask for recently remodeled rooms.

We recently visited Mahabalipuram and stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. We had booked 2 rooms over the phone a couple of weeks in advance and transferred some advance amount online. That process was quite smooth and we found the checking in process when we arrived pretty smooth as well.
The most impressive thing about the hotel is the property it is located on and its location.In a way its a small resort with plenty of artifacts strewn about the place. The beach as well as the famous Shore Temple is walking distance from it (the beach in fact has a private path to it). There is a fine view of the sea from the entrance of the hotel but not from any of the rooms (they had already informed us about that at the time of booking). They have a decent sized swimming pool and some games facilities (and a trampoline which the kids loved).
The a/c rooms we got and the furnishing within them were a bit old and low on natural light but quite cozy and clean otherwise. But I have a feeling these rooms will be damp during the monsoons.
The breakfast was complementary and had a lot of options. First day we had lunch and dinner at the hotel restaurant and were not really happy with either of them. On a couple of occassions the service was exceedingly slow. The recption people however were quite friendly and helpful.
Overall considering the price and location I think this is a very good option in Mahabalipuram for a short family trip. If you want to spend a lot of time on the beach choose one of the resorts before Mahabalipuram - within the town the beach is extremely dirty.

We had booked 4 rooms for 2 nights for a family get together before New year's eve. On checking-in we found the rooms to be muggy and not clean, same with the toilets. No proper beds (the bed was caving in and we had to get it changed at the middle of the night after waiting for a new bed for 2 hours). Pathetic service by the staff. No response at all

Lot of lizards and mosquitoes in the rooms for company. Few stray pigs and cows frequent the Lawn in front of the rooms

We checked out after 1 night as none of us had any sleep.

Do not even think of booking this hotel by looking at the photos on the website.

Such a waste of this property as this located near shore temple.
