Good3.0 / 5
Good beach location; expected more for the price
This is a good beach resort about an hour south of Chennai and about 15 min from Mahabalipurum's main sites. Checkin and checkout were pretty fast and easy, although someone mixed up our bill and came after us saying we still owed something, which was embarassing in the parking lot (and also not true--- their error). The room was comfy, clean and well appointed with good modern bathroom, and the front terrace was lovely but didn't overlook the ocean (looked at a lawn and a wall around the property). Meals were all buffet and good diversity with average quality and presentation---and be sure to go early as quantity runs out. The private beach area is great-- basic huts and hammocks and chairs are all convenient, and the little beach restaurant is basic but fine (and closes at 18h). The pool and surrounding area is pretty small and is jammed with kids and families from morning to closing. The area was very crowded-- lots of people everywhere. For almost 9,000 INR per room (deluxe) per night including taxes, i expected much more.....and will look elsewhere next time.

Excellent4.0 / 5
I was expecting a little bit more for the price
It is good. But for the same money you get at other places a little bit more than just good. The rooms are clean and comfortable enough but you can see, that they are old. For example you would not expect these simple door systems or an empty fridge called "Minibar". On the other hand the service was quite good and the staff friendly and helpfull. so, as I said, it was good.
