The resort has a couple of battery cars that takes the guests to their rooms. At the same time, we also get to see the facilities in the resort quickly. Found the stay to be very... More

I was with my family for a Saturday night stay with full board. We were give our room at noon. But the room was watery on the folk as well as on walls due to AC unit issue. They immediately gave us another room which was good. But honestly the rooms are outdated for the price you pay. This is... More

My previous stays at Mahabalipuram have not been too good due to the mediocre resorts/ hotels. Even the much acclaimed & expensive Radisson lacks good service and quality rooms. So headed into Ideal Beach Resort very cautiously but the place turned out to be amazing! The property is big, green with lawns and a very good swimming pool. Realizing that... More

I had booked a Sea View Villa which was extremely spacious. It had 2 separate restrooms one of which was considerably huge with Jacuzzi, bath tub and shower cubical and the other one was for kids. The villa had a seperate partition before the living room which was useful. The beach was very close to the villa with a nice... More

I had been to Ideal resort in August 2016 & had a relaxing break, away from the jostles of a metropolitan city. Its location just a stone's throw away from the beach makes it a memorable option for a weekend destination. However the facilities (e.g. washrooms) at some rooms, especially the Garden view rooms were not as we had expected... More

We visited this resort for a mid-week getaway last week with the family. The setting is pleasant and ideal as the name suggests. The property has a private beach and pool area. The staff are courteous and pleasing. The food was good, except for the pricing at the restaurant. All in all a memorable experience.

If the Food is more competitively price, then people will have 100% satisfaction for the stay. The security is adequate and suitable for family time. The people in the reception are... More
