“Misleading website pictures - One Hell experience”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2011

The report is one of the worst by far we have seen. very poorly maintained reports. The rooms are no wear close to the breacha s shown in the website and the resorts is about 15kms from Mahabalipuram town and the beach is open to public and crowded. The rooms are small and badly maintained with no adequate service. The staff is rude and not very approachable. Mr John( Manager) seems to be always drunk and is very abusive and cheap class. we had a horriying experience and left the resort within 5 mins after we went to check in. Not suggeted for family and couples and if you are ok to share the pool ( baly maintained )and beach (Dirty) with 3rd class people who keep staring you al the time then go for it.......

Room Tip: none of the rooms are worth a mention.

We has a wonderful get-together at Blue Bay resort .All went well as per plan.

Resort Manger Mr John had made very good arrangement and was very co operative throughout the day , serving us in every possible way . We would like to thanks him for the nice arrangements done including the food selections .Food was too good beyond our expectation .

Overall i would rate 5 out of 5

Would definitely plan to visit again and recommend other groups from our company to plan offsite at your location.

We had such a high expectation of this place, having been recommended by a close friend.
We spent a weekend here and this place was pretty bare.

No restaurant, room service took a lot of time and not a lot of choices too. There was no proper hot water in the bathroom as well.

Eventually we left early on sunday as we could not stay there for long.

Not to mention, our sea facing room was not at all sea facing even though we asked for one.

We stayed here on a weekday and loved it. The wooden cottages were new and sported excellent fittings. Peaceful beach and the Guards were quite accomodative yet firm when reasoning with guests. Pool was clean and inviting. Food was excellent but didnt have some dishes mentioned in the menu. Despite the fact that the resort was mostly empty, the lights were on beyond 10/11 PM which was encouraging. Check in and out were smooth and they even accepted a cancellation without a second word. Overall a memorable weekend for us.

Room Tip: Cottages are the best here

On-line map is TOTALLY misleading. Blue Bay Beach resort hotel is 15 km out of Mahalibalipuram. It is the Chennai-side of the Crocodile Park. You feel trapped in the evening with nothing to do. Air conditioning is nice and cool. We changed hotels to be in Mahalibalipuram. If we had booked through the website I would be suing them.

there is is a lot i can write for this one
1. they were most helpful in helping me put together the proposal as it was for a school reunion and i had strict budgets and logistics issues and they were so patient and accommodating when i needed it. and even did part of my administrative work of sending me the quotes in a format i could just forward- its a great help, trust me. not just UMA the person who was co-ordinating but everybody else too, whenever she was not there.
2. They have this 'jeevs' like manager JOHN, who is always there when you need him and not otherwise; makes everyone feel attended too, demanding friends and stressed out mothers, all included, and never heard him say NO.
3. Then there was the signing and signing out of people and closing all individual bills, all done to the "T' with just one instruction-wonderful to have things done the way they are told to be done. at least in INDIA, a nasty surprise in never unexpected
4. FINALLY, the best part -there were a few request for a reversal of charge due to my error of information, but after the stay when the request was made, the refund was given in half a day! now thats a place you love, dont you.
5. just so that you dont think that i am a fake review for the praises i am showering on them, i will also share what we thought maybe was not a great idea- the resort had huge no of multiple day trip guys who just stormed the place so it kind of took away from the texture of the place and the experience. would ask them to avoid if possible, however understand the needs of a business.
But the last word be said- for the price they charge they really delivered a much superior experience.
Hats of the JOHN (you were great, and everywhere and every time) & Uma (you were most helpful but its sad that i didnt get meet you in person)
