“Great Experience !! Sea View Villa...”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

Had an awesome experience on the whole... Had booked a Sea View Villa-Sea Facing... Waking up in the morning with the sound of the sea outside the room, and with an awesome view was spectacular...total value for money...complimentary buffet had a decent spread...had to wait initially while they prepared the room, but they made up for it...

Room Tip: After reaching and before finalizing, look at the map next to the counter and choose accordingly

We were booked at the Radisson Blu through a booking agent in Delhi as part of our 3-day visit to the area. We arrived from Chennai, were shown to our gorgeous room which overlooked the ENORMOUS pool (Room 159). The balcony was lovely.

We walked the beautifully landscaped grounds to the Bay of Bengal, watched a boatload of tourists head out to view the Shore Temple from bayside, saw some beautiful birds.

We ate dinner at the Water's Edge all three nights and were NEVER disappointed. We ordered off the menu rather than eating at the buffet. The chicken tandoori was sublime and all other meals were equally delicious! We were so happy with the food, the service, and the attention to details.

The swimming pool is GORGEOUS and the water is quite warm because the maximum depth is less than five feet. Because it is hot in Mahalabalipuram, the water temperature is warmer than bath water. Nevertheless, we took advantage of the pool.

The breakfast buffet was very good, with eggs cooked to order. There were many international options as well, but we stuck to what we know!

Without any reservation I would highly recommend both the hotel and restaurant (with a special nod going to Water's Edge),

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Radisson Blu. The resort is a beautiful and peaceful green oasis to step into after the dirt, rush and noise of India. The service was superb. Special compliments to Harinath, the front office executive and his team. All of the staff attended to all of our needs and requests with a smile and utmost efficiency. The bed and pillows were so comfortable. We plan to return as soon as we can.

I went with my two friends. 1 night stay.
We where looking for "Recreational Activities" but most of them they have only for namesake.

Example: Air gun, when we asked for it. A person comes with only one air gun.
He is taking a empty water bottle from dustbin near the pool to keep it has target.
That was very disappointing for us. We came out without playing.

We asked a service persom for a basket ball from the cour. He said someone will bring it in 5 mins. It never came.

Golf, Pool table was good. There was only 1 terrain vehicle.

Pool: Awesome large one near our room.
Food: Above average.
Room: We stayed in pool view, indian style interior. Very good.

Its a huge resort, you have walk a lot to go from your room to other activities.

Overall its good.

The resort is huge! We had the cheapest room (no pool view and no sea view) and that room was excellent as well. The service at the resort was great, right from greeting us while checking in to when we checked out. The resort is very well maintained and very beautiful. The infinity pool is great and so is the 'long' pool. The resort also has a lot of activity options - foosball table, ping pong table, carrom board, xbox consoles, etc. The pingpong table was surprisingly in great condition.

We ordered Indian food for lunch and it was good. Dinner at "The Wharf" - the restaurant in the resort was not great, but still above par. Not many vegetarian options at "The Wharf" restaurant. The breakfast buffet spread was amazing though. Plenty of south indian and continental options.

Watch out when parking your vehicle at night though. If you park at a spot that is under the shade of the trees, then your car will probably receive a paint job by the crows.

My experience at Radisson Blu was awesome! From the Waters Edge's wonderful buffets for breakfast and dinner (even the pickiest eaters were able to find something) to the warm water pool that stretches forever (I was told it is the 2nd longest pool in Asia), to the infinity pool with the sunbathing ledge overlooking the bay, to the beach, to the Aruveda (sp?) spa; the place was absolutely great!! My only regret was that the conference I attended did not allow enough time to fully experience everything. Although over an hour away from Chennai, you get to experience the local flavor just outside the resort (which is very secure) and it is within walking distance to a couple of tourist attractions. I would highly recommend it to anyone traveling to the Chennai area of India.

Room Tip: The rooms along the pool (the 2nd longest in Asia I was told) are very nice and the convenience of w...

I went to Raddison Blu temple bay resort as i got down it was very hot. But the hospitality was amazing. the property was mind blowing too. But the problem stared when the AC started condensing and my room was completely wet a but i was given another room immediately. The stay was vey good till night where they had charged me for the extra person in my room and dint provide me with an extra mattress. But they dint charge me for the extra person at last.
It was an amazing stay with a little troubles which can be tolerated......All the People in there are very helpful.

We apologize for the mix up in billing for the extra bed. In peak summer few rooms we do experience heavy condensation due to high level of humidity in the atmosphere.
