When you check into the IBR, beautiful sari-clad ladies smile as they give you a flower garland necklace and some delicious watermelon juice. All processes were smooth and courteous for check-in, check-out and everything in between! Rooms are very clean and extremely comfortable. The beach is a private zone and just lovely. For 95 rupees, a man took a huge...

This property offers a very good trade-off between palm-fringed beach-front relaxation and immersion in some of the finest historic monuments in this part of India. One point to note, however, is that the location 'pin' for the resort on TA and Google's maps is way off the mark. It is actually on the edge of Deveneri village: a good 40-minute...

This hotel is on a large site with various spaces for functions, conferences, weddings etc. Which can be noisy. We found the bed VERY soft, which suits some, and downstairs rooms have a little terrace looking onto the garden, but upstairs ones have a balcony. . From the beach you could walk into Mamalapuram in the day time, if you...

We were there during the week in March 2017 with a group. The place was very quiet, spotless and peaceful- we had most of the facilities to ourselves a lot of the time and the staff did their best to make us comfortable.

As soon as you walked into the room, there was a distinct moldy smell. The hotel room advertised as having wifi connection and yet none of us got it. We even had to call the front desk to get help with it -although they were not able to get it either. No towels in the room and very rude front...

Predominantly focused on long stay guests, this place is too much for a short stay. The suites have tubs and jacuzzi which no one really uses. So if you are looking for a weekend in Mahabalipuram this is far fetched. The beach is very good! The pool is upto 9ft, probably the deepest in this vicinity. Both the days we...
