I was doing some business in Chennai, so I took my family along. Ideal Beach is a compact resort with a really nice beach (beware of the strong undercurrent). The staff bend over backwards to provide a good service. The rooms appeared to be in need of refurbishment however we found the seafront apartments fine. There was not much a view of the sea from the ground floor but everyone really enjoyed playing in the jacuzzi bath. The pool is a decent size with a 9 foot deep end. There is also a fun children's pool. We took a look at the two other luxury resorts nearby and neither had as good a beach. One was very pompous and the other a sprawl from the road to the beach. Judging from the number of expat families passing through Ideal Beach Resort, this would appear to be a favorite holiday spot. Several families had to upgrade as the hotel is always full, so book early for bargains.
