We stayed here for 3 nights in January 2012. I always dread staying in interior Tamil Nadu because hygiene is despicable, but this hotel was clean and comfortable. The food was good. The restaurant can be very noisy and crowded when the tour buses arrive. This is not a place for rest and relaxation, but more a place to stay on a religious trip. The hotel is close to Nagapattinam railway station and a short drive away from Vailankanni church. Hotel car pickup/drop to Vailankanni church costs about Rs 300 to 400 for a round trip.

We found deep holes in the sofa which looked really ugly. They need to put more effort into maintaining the interiors. The hotel is quite expensive for a place like Nagapattinam.

We were 12 people and were thinking that accommodation would be a problem but to our surprise even though the cottages were full we were comfortably accomodated in 2 suite rooms with extra beds which were as good as the main beds. The resort I would say is on the main Nagapattinam Ramanad ECR Road and is situated right in the junction were one enters the smaller road leading to the Valankanni shrine.The rooms were tidy with new linen.The bath and toilet clean and well kept and had 24 hrs hot and cold running water.The restaurant was spacious clean and the cutlery had a gleaming twinkle. The kitchen and wait had proffesional staff so did the front office. The food was good with an economically priced menu.Centrally air conditioned rooms were functional in spite of power cuts. The resort has a nice swimming pool. We were totally at peace and enjoyed stay just relaxing in cool comfort.

nice place to stay if you are visiting the vellankani shrine, need your own transportation to reach the shrine as it is not within walking distance, you can use a auto, available at the hotel gate at all times costs INR 50 one way.The cottages are good if around 5 adults want to stay as it has 2 bedrooms but on first floor of the cottage, not good for elderly. Has a swimming pool that kids can have fun in. Food is decent.

Room Tip: all rooms are good

Have now returned to MGM, this time with family for our Vailankanni visit. The one thing which pinches is the 600 rupees plus taxes for the pickup or drop from/to Nagapattinam rail station-all of about 10-12 km distance. The rooms were good enough.
