Always stay there for a few days when in chennai
Big fan of the sea view cottages. Also tried the villas (which I don’t find worth the extra money) and once when all cottages were full, I had a room in the north west wing, which had a nice room but felt the ac was blowing too directly on the bed

Beautiful garden and pool, glam rooms in a sort of 60s era James Bond way, lovely staff - especially the life guard on the beach, who took great care of us while we swam in the sea. The final bill was quite a bit higher than expected, despite taking into account food, drinks and agreed extras. I emailed the hotel when we got home, but they haven't get back to us.

Location is 5* but the upkeep,service and rooms 3*
We decided on Fishermans Cove after a previous stay at the Chennai Taj hotel as we really wanted a relaxed beach holiday and had loved the Taj 5* service before. We arrived after a long flight to the organised driver waiting for us- however they brought a small car- the bags just fit (2 cases in total with no hand luggage- so we were hardly overpacking), then he did not have the correct money to pay for the parking at the airport- this resulted in a long negiotation with the staff, the asking us if we had Rupees (which we didn't)- so this continued for about 10 minutes until dollars were found! So finally on the way, we got to the hotel about 50 minutes later and checked in- we had booked a premium temptation villa on the beach (V35) with a rollaway bed for our son. The villa was in a great location on the beach, however no rollaway bed so we had to call to get that- but the bigger problem was the actual upkeep of the villa- the furniture was old and shabby; the door to the TV consul was broken off, the were rips in the bedding, poor a/c and more worrying- there were gaps between the doors with no screens so the room had a good number of mosquitoes. We called the hotel for some room mosquito spray- they sent some body spray which didn't really work. After one night of being bitten we asked the hotel to move us to a standard hotel room - which was a real shame. Some great staff - Neema on the front desk was very helpful but this is not a 5* hotel.

Exactly what I needed for a two day recovery from jet lag and a hectic work schedule. I was only there for two days but immediately felt a sense of relaxation. I'd highly recommend getting a great massage, then sitting on the cool beach after dark and listening to the waves crash. One of the best resorts I've visited.
