    Nice Hotel with good rooms”
    Hotel was really good and rooms were quite clean and big.. the location is good with a beach just behind the hotel... I was only disappointed with the service.. The beach and swimming pool is closed at 6:00 PM which is very early.. The food options are limited and alcohol also very limited menu..

    Pathetic... apalling condition of room, cleanliness..??”
    Never ever again.. swimming pool was okay but cleanliness down in the dumps, maintenance very poor, bathing in the sea not to be recommended since a lot of dead fish and crabs are to be found on the beach... more than normal probably because the atomic plant in kalpakkam is in the vicinity... pictures on the website are misleading, no stars!!

    Would never recommend this place! ”
    Probably the worst place I have stayed at till date in India especially given the price that we had to pay of almost USD 250 per night . The rooms were big but the amenities were hopeless. The spare toilet had a door wouldn’t lock. The hot water would take forever to arrive in the taps and showers or as if you are facing water shortage and more like a drip. I could have walked to a library and fetched information faster than the speed of the the so called wifi connection in the room! Abysmal!! Mosquitos everywhere and Luckily we only saw the spidercoming out from behind the bed on the day we were checking out otherwise spending two days there would have been even more difficult. The food was okay. Nothing to crow about. Very very ordinary experience. I won’t be going again and would never recommend it Recommend it to anyone. Already WhatsApped the 1000 plus contacts on my phone with this feedback!

    No more "Ideal" Beach - this Beach!”
    "Ideal Beach Resort" used to stand for very good quality at an actually 'ideal' location on ECR with a truly ideal beach access. A place to stay and relax and enjoy the breeze, the beach, the palm trees, the hospitality. For many years. Those days seem gone. Whilst the tariffs were hiked and hiked during the recent years and at the same time the facilities weren't at the same pace (except the pool area, which still is spotless!), it now seems that the Management has decided "to walk the corporate route". Which may hike their profit but spoils the relax/privacy factor. So whilst the "Ford" day was possible a genuine incentive to those younger chaps, it was the ruin of the regularly paying guest in terms of privacy, pool access or beach enjoyment. Loud music from the event hall, hordes of youngsters swamping the pool (with accompanying volume) and a beach setting after 4:30pm that was a compilation of that. Sure, Saturday was better - so you better go then if you want it 'Ideal' again!

    Very helpful office in advance of booking (Arunkamar), very carefully personal in the restaurant and for service in the in room. People with Allergies get a lot of support! Beautiful beach. In the restaurant I got cooking-receipes of the staff there. Very lovely! The driver of the hotel drove very carefully. So you can book your Airport-Hotel Transfer by the hotel very easy.

    Stay was pleasant but front desk manager Ayyappan is worst fellow”
    Be careful with your belongings ... we lost our phone charger not from room but from party hall... Ayyappan one of the worst resort manager you will encounter .. he is not at suitable for hospitality industries, best job for him could be to collect receivable .. bad manners, very rude and harsh...he handles as if resorts belongs to him and continuously dedicate terms.. he least care about the guest who already checked in and the concern is only to get the new guest in .. We are group of 4 couples with kids and checked in here at delux partial sea view room....accommodation policy is very strict ... never expect any grace from staff you will be charged for each and every person ...make sure while booking online...you mentioned clearly kids and their age ... as they will seize as an opportunity for them to Charge you back and to compensate with the cheapest rate we got it from agoda ..

    Location : Excellent location with private beach Spent Quality time on beach. Drinks (hot and Cold ), Tea, Snacks available on beach huts Food : Had Moonlight dinner. Food came late but quality was good . Breakfast was also equally good. Swimming pool : is Good for Swimmers. But Non-swimmers and kids area is small. Rooms : I took seaside villa. It is not exactly looking at sea. But view and proximity to beach/sea is small. Other facilities : Could be better if they have more outdoor activities. Big chess board , tennis, volley ball and table tennis available. Staff: Very friendly and helpful Overall rating 4/5

The resort was one of the finest places I have stayed at in the recent times”s- very professional staff, great location, clean property and good food. The chef paid attention to our specific meal requests and the food was delicious. I strongly recommend this to everyone. I certainly know where I would be going for my next holiday

    The private beach, The food and the room
    Very pleasant and happy. The restaurant served fish curry which blew our minds. It was spectacular. You must try the SriLankan Fish fry and curry. Totally worth it! the rooms were extremely comfortable and close to the beach. A moon night walk across the beach next to the tides hitting the legs was indeed a priceless moment.

    Good value for money but really nothing exceptional about bout this venue. The properties really lack charm, and the food is below average other similar venues we have stayed in. Also it is quite far from the main touristic attraction. Though good stop for a night. Rooms are large and clean, there is hot water. Staff is kind and helpful.

    Beautiful resort and good ambience. But over the years this place has become crowded with lot of day package people coming and using pools and private beach areas. Pros cleanliness Ambience Location service Cons AC . We stayed in a deluxe room (301) and definitely the Ac Probably one ton is not sufficient for a big room. With May chennai temperatures soaring, its really a problem. Lot of new buildings (compared to 5 years ago) and lot of day outing people cramping the place. Overall its a premier place to stay at a reasonable cost and I definitely recommend people to choose if you are visiting chennai

    Pricey but good”
    Rooms booked through Agoda are not with sea view. And an upgrade gets charged more than the base rate one pays at Agoda. It's better to call the resort and book a room at the prices they quote, rather than book through Agoda, go there to be shown a bottom of the barrel room, and then upgrade. Another point to note : The hotel takes corporate bulk bookings, so if you are looking for a peace and quiet, by the beach, weekend with family, I wouldn't recommend this place.
