#1 of 3 in Covelong
Taj Fisherman's Cove Resort & Spa, Chennai, built on the ramparts of an old Dutch fort, is now riding on a fresh new wave. Yet it remains the charming beach resort that's almost one with the Bay of Bengal. Where fun lovers return for good times. There's a nice new buzz however. In the renewed cottages and villas, the nouvelle restaurants, the high energy bar, and the spa where you'll go Ah!

First, my sincere thanks for upgrading my room from the Deluxe Seaview room to partial Seaview Cottage. The location, ambience, and the view were all splendid, more than I had imagined. Overall, me and my husband both had a nice time at Taj and would definitely visit again. My honest feedback below: Room: The room was nice and spacious. Though it was mentioned as partial view of the sea, the view was good enough to watch sunrise from our window. I was happy that the management upgraded my room. However, we had some issues with the room. The intercom/ telephone in the room did not work when we checked in and the air conditioner was not cooling beyond 23 degrees. The person who came to fix the a/c said that he had fixed it and would take 10 minutes for the room to cool. In the meanwhile, a manager walked in and he was able to get the telephone fixed. We then went to the beach and came back to see that the a/c was still not working. Then another person came and worked on it. The manager called and informed us that they could arrange another room, if we still had issues with the a/c. But we decided not to waste time in packing our things, moving and then unpacking in another room, as the a/c was able to reach 20 degrees. Two of the lights in the outdoor shower area were not working. Also, the room did not seem well cleaned when we checked in as the floor was sticky in a few spots. But then they were able to get it all cleaned. One of the pillows had a red spot on it as well. Pros: 1) Spacious and well stocked room 2) View of the sea was excellent. 3) Furniture was in good condition. Cons: 1) Telephone was not functional 2) There were issues with the air conditioner 3) Two lights in the outdoor shower were not working. Food: We had two complimentary breakfasts and one paid dinner at Seagull restaurant. We also had one paid dinner at the Bay View restaurant. The food at Seagull was of generous proportion and for buffet it was a good spread with a nice variety of dishes. The taste of food items was delicious. However, there were issues with the Live counter; our food came late, few wrong orders came to our table, and couple of the dishes were cold. This happened on both days during breakfast. The dinner at Seagull was very good except for the curd rice which had started to go stale. Bay View food was good but extremely minimal choices for vegetarian. Pros: 1) Nice ambience 2) Generous portions 3) Good variety of dishes Cons: 1) Food from Live counter at Seagull came very late 2) Wrong items were brought to our table more than a couple of times 3) First day, the poori and dosa from Live counter came cold. The second day, dosa alone came cold. 4) The curd rice kept during dinner at Seagull had started to go stale 5) More vegetarian options could be added to Bay View menu. Service: Of all things considered during our stay at Taj, the main thing that I was disappointed was "customer service". Given that it is a five star category and especially the Taj chain, the service was not at all as expected. From checking in to checking out every thing was very slow. Though we were seated and welcome drink was provided, the check in process took nearly 45 minutes. Every time I called from my room for some assistance, it took eons for someone to first answer the phone. Many times, the phone went unanswered as well, irrespective of where I dialed; number 0 or the duty manager. Even, after you make a request, it took minimum 10-15 minutes for someone to respond to the request. I called in twice for checkout, waited more than 15 minutes, then walked to the reception in person and informed and then once again went to the settlement section and then requested again for vacating the room after which a buggy was sent. One the whole, it would be best to check everything and clean the room before opening it for the guests and make sure that calls from the rooms/ guests are answered quickly.

I stayed for 3 days and not even once the Room was cleaned , even after me opting for Room service when we were out. In Room dining has got repeated and only couple of varieties. Daily services were not spontaneous,rather we have to keep calling and asking for water bottles, everyday. Even after couple of call backs, the service was very slow. Overall, very much disappointed

We stayed 7 nights there. We stayed in Garden view room. Overall it was a nice experience.My daughter throughly enjoyed.Private beach experience was good. Hi-Tea with many activities were memorable. Food was Great. We have a suggestion to introduce seasonal Fruits like Mango. Cake and Bouquet were arranged on my wife birthday which made that day unforgettable. Thanks to Mr.Manoj.Room cleaning was very good and Thanks to Mr.Jeyaraj. But Rooms shows it's age.

Our stay for 2 nights / 3 days at Taj was a Fantastic One. Loved the open space , Gardens , greenary, very well maintained swimming pool and the easy access to the ⛱️ beach... We were alloted the Garden view room on the upper floor. Comes with a lovely private balcony overlooking the Lush Green Garden . My kids used the gym and the club house , very satisfying it was. Will be looking forward to visit again in the near future , hopefully with more family members and friends too. God willing . Only small improvisation i & my family would recommend is the confectionery ( muffins / cakes / desserts ) if can have few eggless will help the Vegetarian like us. Otherwise food quality & variety for the Breakfast was great. Thank you Team Taj for making our short break a very comfortable and memorable one... Navin Jaswani.
