It's a lovely location, friendly staff, food is average, the private beach and the pool is a plus but had a very unprofessional situation. We booked for four days as it was our son's 10th bday weekend. Just one day before we were to leave for chennai, got a call from the manager that we have a very heavy booking... More

As you enter the resort, you wonder at the acres of land it has and the poor infrastructure that apparently wastes this totally. The resort is in shambles and its a shame that we paid so much to stay here when world class resorts like the next door Ideal Beach Resort offer rooms only at a slightly higher price than... More

We stayed here for 3 nights during a workshop that we conducted. Located on the shores of Bay of Bengal, and only 3 kilometers from Mahabalipuram, the ambience of the resort is appropriate for workshops that requires participant to dwell deep into themselves. The rooms are very comfortable. Bathroom are clean and neatly maintained. The buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner... More

Have been to this place like 2-3 time. It was good initially and was lovely during old days. The food quality should be improved definitely. The items in buffet looked like some food that was cooked on road side shop. We ordered chucked items to room but it smelled like fish (seems they were using old oil for long time).... More

I have been to this resort many times before (got used to the place). The service those times were bad, but seems like they have worked hard to improve the service. Service at the restaurant was good, food was average though. Ac was not working in the room allotted to us, had to move to a different room, and guess... More

Beach is nice , just next to the property . Service is not good. they can improve a lot. If you are looking for a good view without good service , this is the place. There are some good restaurants near the hotel. you can try that . We tried antony's it was very good.

Pretty run down hotel but the saving grace and the most amazing part is the private beach that starts at the hotel. Rarely do you find a clean beach, and this was one. The restaurant serves the most horrid food but since there is no other option you should make other arrangements. The receptionist started our visit very rudely saying... More
