        Its an excellent property!”

        However, we were staying here after an amazing experience at Radisson Blu, Mahabalipuram. The experience with the staff and the facilities fell short after the experience at Radisson. Make no mistake, the place is beautiful and the rooms are good; its just that, the preceding experience was lingering in our minds.

        Too expensive for amenities they are providing, beautiful resort and great location”

        pros- * excellent property, * Beautiful and very clean beach * Sea view rooms highly recommended for its view * nice and welcoming staff, * Provided us a complementary cake on request for our anniversary celebration cons- * there was a froggggg in our room, though the staff removed it on complain * Outside sitting area was clean on the first day, but was very dirty with some rat/rabbit pooo and unnoticed by the staff. * Dinner and breakfast buffet were ridiculous in taste and highly overpriced. I strongly suggest to order a-la-carte for lunch and dinner both. * No conditioner in the toiletries * Toiletries were not up to the mark for this highly priced package.

        We stayed there for 2 nights and 3 days and our experience was not what we expected. Here are main concerns that was not addressed: - Swimming pool as insects sticking to the almost every wall and they bit us, and we had to force our kids not to enter the pool - Water inside the pond was really filthy and had not been cleaned in weeks, this caused more insects to hop around - Recreational activities are not maintained, for instance, snooker table does not have Cue, so its basically sitting there. - Room door knobs are merely hanging and locking the room is no good. - Service is supremely slow There are few positives to all this as well - Staff is very courteous - Location is great - Ample open space to walk, provided one can avoid the insects

        Calm and serene atmosphere. Good location. The reception and staff's are less responsive. Need follow ups to get things done. Cleanliness need to be improved. At the premium cost one expects professional and speedy approach to give services. it's owner's choice to be or not to be there. My rating would be 3.5/5

        There is a lot of space for improvement in the food. Hotel and property is good. But the food is not so good and we had to travel everyday to the city for food. Which made the trip a little uncomfortable. As the location is not so convenient.

        The resort is located near the sea shore but the road to the resort were really bad. The staffs and facilities were amazing. We went for luxury pool villa. Had a great experience. The room was quite spacious and you have your own pool in the lawn area with full privacy. The breakfast were complementary and the food was served was good.

        excellent property and very comfortable stay. only two things they need to work on . firstly they need to have recreation room with kids activities. currently there were none. second is that they need to have a discipline approach on kids below 5 entering swimming pool and also they allow people with normal clothings on to enter swimming pool which makes the pool very unhyegenic. rest an excellent property.

        Definitely one of the best resorts I have been to. Stayed at the Pool Villa and it was fabulous. We never wanted to leave the villa. Excellent layout and well maintained. The entire staff are very courteous and ready to help. Like their policy of 'NO TIPPING'. This makes us contribute to the common kitty at the reception. Few suggestions : 1. Food needs improvement. Had left the same comments when I stayed here 2 years ago too. Taste and Variety definitely needs improvement. Buffet breakfast had the same varieties (bakery and fresh fruits) on both the days. 2. Would prefer a Jacuzzi/Steam in the Spa area. 3. Valet parking not available. Had to park the car myself all the time. 4. Missed the ATV this time.

        Superb Short Stay”

        Staff Location Pool

        I stayed at this beautiful hotel for only two nights, wish it had been longer. I chose it because of online reviews and a good recommendation from a friend in Delhi who had stayed there previously. Maybe because I had introductions from my previous hotel, La Villa Shanti, I found the service and attention we received from the staff to be outstanding, I just hope all guests are treated the same way. We stayed in a sea view room, perfect for this time of year with the breeze coming directly onto the balcony. The room was spacious with an enormous bathroom. I don’t think I have ever stayed in a hotel with such a huge indoor shower, it was also very powerful. The room had a large wide screen tv, plus there is also a safe, kettle, hairdryer and minibar. A mosquito repellent plug in is also provided. Amazingly, weighing scales are hidden in a cupboard, although whether this is meant for weighing yourself or your luggage. I am unsure! The pool area is fantastic, exceptionally clean, with towels provided, and also beautifully illuminated after dark. As the resort is rather remote you are obliged to eat here. The breakfast is a large buffet selection that suits both western and Indian palates. There are dedicated chefs who make eggs of your choice plus Indian delicacies. On our first night we wanted butter chicken which was not on the menu but they were happy to oblige and it was extremely tasty, but the parathas were not as good as those in our previous hotel. He meal prices were higher than those in my previous hotel in the Old Town, but the wine was actually cheaper! Service in the restaurant was excellent, special thanks goes to our waitress, Pinky. My companion used the spa facilities and was very impressed. The beachfront area in front of the hotel was very clean. I was also allowed a late check out from the room at 2:30pm instead of 12:00 noon at no extra charge. I would recommend this hotel whole heartedly.

        Location, beach and service

        The stay was overall pleasant. However, I was a bit disappointed with gym facilities. There were 2 treadmills, of which only 1 was working. It was also quite hot there with just 1 ceiling fan. I would expect better gym facilities.

        Very poor maintenance of the room amd property”

        I thought its gonna be a great stay thr. But the property was very poorly maintained and poorly managed. Wish i would have booked a hotel in main town pondy. Toilets in the room were not well lit and very dirty. The dispenser for shower gel and shampoo was broken without any marking of “shower gel” or “shampoo”. Really if well managed and maintained this can be a very great resort. Wont advise to anyone for this rental. Can get much better stay for same value.
