Firstly, im a 28 year old female from Canada who unil March 3rd had never been anywhere far from home so coming to India was a huge move for me. I was searching long and hard for the perfect place to stay on my travels. Coming from -20 to +30 firstly I knew I needed to be by the water and I needed a pool. When I came across MGM I was intrigued, I did lots of research, I came to trip advisor quite often and even with the mixed reviews I decided to book, unfortunately through hotels.com.
I arrived at mgm around 130am with my partner who lives in Chennai. The gentleman with the name ayppian (excuse the spelling) was wonderful. We had already confirmed our reservation so they were expecting us to be late. Hotels.com had not sent my money through around 510.00 Canadian. As mentioned he knew we were coming, I had my print off receipt from hotels.com he said no problem ill check you in and we will deal with the issue tomorrow.
The next morning came, we went for the complimentary breakfast buffet which was amazing lots of fruit which I love. I was impressed. Came back to the room to find mgm still hadnt received the money. the problem now was that hotels.com gave me the price of 510.00 ffom wed-sun. The new price for the Park View Suite was now raised to around 780.00. (wow) In the end very worth the money. Our room was beautiful the staff was polite, friendly and accommodating. The grounds were beautiful. Im also very pleased with the level of security. I felt very safe and looked after which was a major worry for me coming on this trip.
There were a few things... not being able to go in the ocean water was a damper and the food was somewhat pricey BUT nothing major.
Next year ill be returning to MGM Beach Resort. It was perfect. Im also hoping they have some kind of incentives for returning guests.
Also I didnt mention im a part of Tourism Industry Of Nova Scotia. ill be forwarding my wonderful experience with most everyone. Thank you MGM!!!!
Also free wifi in the room saved me, it was my frist time away from my son and I was able to skype with him everyday as well as keep in touch with my family and friends
