“Not so pleasant experience”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

We decided to celebrate our christmas this year in mahabalipuram and chose TTDC resort looking at the great reviews. But we were rather disappointed.
On plus side are the sea facing rooms and the location of the resort. Its a huge property and the exterier is done well and neatly maintained.We took the 1st floor room and had a very good sea view.
The sad part was that there is absolutely no customer friendliness from the staff and rooms are not maintained neatly. Food was below average.AC was not working most of the time. Toilet was dirty. Definitely not worth the money.

This was the second visit to the property after I had visited it around 4 years back.
The location of the resort is just WOW !!!! The beach is just a stone's throw away and you can hear the sea even in your rooms.
If I want to compare my last stay to the recent one, there are many improvements ...
They have added the swimming pool, the children's play area, the food quality and service have really improved. The only thing which seems to have degraded are the rooms. The bathrooms were not that neat as the previous stay and the room furnitures needs replacement.
A little more on the rooms and I would give it a "5 star" given the value for money.
All and all a good place to stay and enjoy the beach and mahaballipuram.

Worth every penny if we consider the prices of other private resorts around.
Had been there over the weekend.I guess its usp is the location.The resort is bang on the beach.All the rooms are sea facing.The rooms itself are neatly done up.
It would be good if you take your own bedsheets and towels.They do provide them but they dont seem that good.Their complimentary breakfast is good,but the remaining food for lunch or dinner is just average.
The whole atmosphere over there is peaceful,it has really large swimming pools as well.I would recommend it for anyone visiting mahabalipuram. Stayed in Double a/c on the first floor.Always ask for the first floor rooms which has a big balcony where u can sit and enjoy the sea and in the mornings the sunrise over the sea.

Room Tip: Ask for the first floor rooms,they have an awesome view of the ocean.

we travel from chennai and stay on the weekends......we stayed thrice in this place....Worth for the money spend.....Well maintained govt. resort with children's park and swimming pool.lot of space to roam around...amble parking..... Great location, before you enter Mahabalipuram. we stayed at 1st floor double a/c room. It has nice view of the sea through its large window. It also has a balcony at the sea side. You can watch the sunrise right from your bed. At night, enjoy the sound of the sea waves. You can walk on the beach for two km without anyone distubring....peaceful....
Breakfast is complimentary, but needs improvement. we prefer to stay here again and agin as we had compared the other resorts nearby.....You can play as there is space....better to carry your playing stuff....

Room Tip: Choose the 1st floor ac rooms

Well maintained govt. resort with children's park and swimming pool. Great location, just 2 km from the town. I stayed at 1st floor double a/c room. It has nice view of the sea through its large window. It also has a balcony at the sea side. You can watch the sunrise right from your bed. At night, you might wake up by the roar of the sea waves. As others mentioned, if you don't care much about luxury, this is value for your money.
South Indian veg breakfast is very good. The breakfast is usually complimentary, confirm it during booking. Non-veg items are very limited, I got only one choice in chicken and fish. But everything is hygienic. The rates are reasonable.
There are no hidden charges, and very transparent in their billing. Nothing to complain about, it was a memorable stay and will remain my first preference at Mamallapuram.

Room Tip: Opt for double a/c rooms at 1st floor for nice view to the sea.

If you want wake up to the sound and sights of waves. If you want to step out of your room and place your feet on the clean half white sands of the beach. If you want to meditate. If you do not care too much about luxury. Then this is the place to be. If not for the bar and chances of finding unruly men at the place i would recommend this place to everyone. Women and couples might feel intimidated but it is still safe. For the price that you pay you also get a 12 feet swimming pool. The staff are surprisingly nice. The food is surprisingly good. Surprisingly five star without being a five star hotel.

Room Tip: Get the rooms on the 1st floor if you want an uninterrupted view of the sea! Make sure the ac works...

Underestimated due to the fact, it is maintained by Govt., but surprisingly awesome place and well maintained. We went with the entire family of 17 persons, for a chill-out. Rooms are well maintained and neat, mostly facing the beach (just 50~100 meters from beach). Good beach view from the balcony. You get good quality veg. food. South Indian break-fast which you will get as a complimentary. Lunch will be a buffet and Dinner you can manage outside either in Adyar AB (worst) and Rest. Mamalla (preferable). 3~12"ft. Swimming pool, well maintained and you really enjoy swimming, if you know the swimming!!. Battery car service available to drop you from the lobby till your room without an additional cost. Outdoor activities like Beach VB net will be provided, you need to take the VB. Paintball activities is hearby with in 4 kms. from hotel and Tourist attractions are near from the hotel (2 kms.). I Love to go back next time. It is a GREAT VALUE for the MONEY.

Room Tip: Choose the rooms facing the beach. Rooms starts from 115~120.
