Was a decent place, no surprises that I received. Right in the middle of town. Friendly staff . The restaurant service can be improved and the aircon in the main room was struggling. Can improve the room furnishings in a big way

Surprising area when you arrive in this calm hotel with swimming pool, the rooms have a balcony with a view on the swimming pool. The room is very nice, comfortable, you can walk to the sea,for a swim the beach is clean, great. Staff is friendly, the restaurant is more for snacks very simple but good.

Room was clean, comfortable, view over the swimming pool which was kept very clean, excellent buffet breakfast included in the price of the room. Ideal for relaxing after hard travelling. Centrally located in the town so that all the attractions are within easy walking distance.

Room was neat n smells good. Windows lack locksMosquitoes were a problem. But that's everywhere in Mahabalipuram, not a local issue. Reasonable... More

Got stuck in room 101, which is on the edge and no view of the beautiful pool. I stayed a couple of years back and enjoyed it, but this time I could only manage two nights as it lacks hospitality and lost its character. Unbelievably they charge for WiFi as an extra, despite paying 2,600 rps per night! Lot's of... More

But later we discovered that the property was full of mosquitos all around. We had a terrible night and just couldn’t sleep. The next we asked the manager to burn some mosquito... More

We arrived on spec and were shown a variety of rooms and chose a deluxe room on the second floor. The room was nicely fitted out with a good view over the pool and gardens. The shower had no hot water and even after calling out a maintenance man it was difficult to tell the difference between hot and cold... More

Moreover, it is in a pleasant shaded site with lovely gardens and a large outdoor swimmng pool.The room was spacious and well equipped , and the service was good.
