“Awesome location but rooms are ok”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

The location is amazing... the beach is clean.... the first room we were given had paan stains all over.... it wasnt even cleaned yet... the peels of fruit and empty liquor bottles were all over the room.... we requested for a change which was done.... the room in which we finally stayed was atleast clean but the rooms were not at all maintained....there were some new constructed rooms but were not booked for regular civilians yet....
the restaurant is ok.... same breakfast everyday... we had dinner once there it was ok..... most of our meals we had outside....
Room rates are economical..... the pool is good and clean.... there is a play area for kids and lots of grounds for them to run around.....

Room Tip: Ask them to show you a couple of rooms before you pick one.

The location of this resort and the sea here is simply superb. Long stretches of a clean, uncrowded coast line. Rooms were damp and not so well maintained. Its a nice place at these prices and there is no compromise on the fun element!

Room Tip: Choose rooms on upper floor for a better view.

The hotel has the best location in Mamallapuram (Mahabalipuram). It is right next to the beach and all rooms face the sea. The property is pretty big and is located on Chennai- Mamallapuram highway; just before you enter the town. There is swimming pool and a kid’s playing area. The restaurant, however, is not good and you don’t have a choice because the hotel is far from the town so going out to eat is not easy if you don’t have your own car. Room service is not good either.
Since the location is spectacular, I will highly recommend it.

Room Tip: The rooms are all good facing the beach.

This is the first time I traveled to Mahaballipuram. This hotel is right besides the beach. The rates are quite economical. The rooms were just okay. Warm water and restrooms are kept okay. The food (South Indian meals) provided was decent in a hall setting. The comfort is not near to the normal Hotels in USA. There is a large swimming pool. The water was warm and nice even in January. The resort had arranged a nice Bharatanatyam dance program near the temple which is 5 kms away. That program is free to attend and it was awesome. Some day I will visit this place again.

I have stayed in this hotel many times . And , I always arrange for my Guests to stay here . This Hotel has exclusive & private beach with a large waterline . A walk along the waterline at sunrise is an unforgettable experience . All of this at a throw-away price .

Good place to stay. Economy. Suggest to stay in the new block. Old block are lousy. One of the best sea view accommodation in mamallapuram. One can take a dip in the sea. Watch guard is present in the day time to guide us to take a swim. Don't forget to collect your complementary breakfast coupon. The staff will not speak about this.

Room Tip: ask for newly constructed rooms.

Maybe it's not the best place to stay if you are foreign tourist who wants to visit all the sites in town since you'll have to take a tuk-tuk every time you want to go to town (walking under this sun is not too appealing), but apart from that it's an excellent place. quiet, relaxing, great view of the Bengal Bay, wonderful swimming pool and excellent food. Breakfast is included but we had all our meals there and we did not regret. Too bad it's impossible to go into the sea in front of the resort as the beach goes too abruptly into the water and current and waves are really strong. But the pool is very nice and big.

Room Tip: As others said, upper floor rooms are better for the view over the sea.
