I have stayed in this resort for more than 25 times in the last 30 years and seen it improve from time to time.. Bountiful lawns and greenery all round . very well maintained swimming pool. Circular dining restaurant, ample parking space inside the resort which extends to several acres from the main road to the beach. Rooms are maintained very neatly .. tariff has been increased from the time i visited about 4 years back which is understandable. Complimentary breakfast. Room service available. All cottages facing the seashore. A wonderful experience again.

I will review my opinion here. The good and bad both after spending a day and night here recently. So the pros are- "it's near to Mahabalipuram. All the hotels are beach viewed. You will get a great view from the hotel. Good and safe for a family to stay." Now the cons are-" the price is very much higher about the room and their services. You can get much better options with that price tag. The service is pathetic. They will refuse to give room service. Don't go if you planning to go as a couple, friends, newly married or if searching for budget-friendly. The complimentary dinner and breakfast are to waste of money. We prefer to eat outside. The beach is not cleaned too." If you want to spend some quality time. This resort should not be your list. Poor management by Govt

We requested guest request after check in being a holiday. Was refused though we r ready to pay the addl charges. It's day stay only for guest. As a night staying guest we were prevented from going out of the Resort. We don't know what type of rule is this. God save guests from these type of regulations in TTDC.

We wanted a boy's night out and a place nearby to Chennai to relax. Choose TTDC, run by Tourism Board and it is cost-effective for a night stay and is located before we enter Mahabs. The rooms are sea-facing and we got the room located at the south end of the property and on the first floor. Check-in was a bit challenging, got the keys only at 2.00 pm instead of 12-noon check-in. The good part is the rooms on the doorsteps of the shore. Had a nice evening sitting at the seashore, later visited Moonrakers at Mahabs city for dinner. Had CP plan hence morning breakfast was on the house, checked out at 1 pm next day. Memories to retain after a long time.

The Tamil Nadu Tourism's beach resort at Mamallapuram reinforces my ling held belief that governments, whether centre or state have no business running hotels. The establishment is right on the beach and that is just about all that one can speak positive about it. We checked in a few minutes before 1500 hrs. to be told that unless we hurry there would be no food. Hurry we did to the canteen style restaurant to find that the vegetarian meals is rather nice, but that no amount of soya sauce and vinegar can salvage prawns which are decidedly stale. After the meal we went to the room to find that the beach is just steps away and our first floor room has a nice sit out overlooking the sea in front, the only fly in the ointment is lack of chairs. So, if you want to gaze at the waves breaking a few metres away, you better be prepared to sit on the ground. Wifey wants a cup of tea and the reception informs that they have room service. A call to the restaurant is placed only to be told that it would be available only after 4 O'clock. She asks me for the time. Lo and behold, it was 2 minutes from the magic hour. Hope you get the drift. Btw, the rooms don't merit a tea/coffee maker or a mini fridge. There are two single beds joined together, but a gap still remains. The beds have thick mattresses, but the support they provide is less than ideal. The towels are ratty and stained. The air-conditioner works but its remote doesn't. Request to the reception brings no remedy. The rooms don't have tumblers. So it is straight from the bottle system. There is a small television affixed to the wall. I don't watch television, so even if it were missing, I wouldn't have missed it. The bathroom is spacious but has no exhaust. I still don't understand why people fix flimsy plastic doors on bathrooms. The shower area is not separate. So after a bath, the whole bathroom remains wet. They don't provide containers for the guest's tooth brushes, razors and sundry items. So one simply has to spread them around the wash basin. The swimming pool is closed on account of Covid. There is a bar on the premises, but the selection is rather limited. The barman says he accepts credit/debit cards for payments above Rs. 200/-. That is a surprise after being told to pay for cash at the restaurant aftet lunch. The accommodation includes dinner and breakfast, both vegetarian. The dinner is buffet style and includes a mushroom pulao,uttapams, chapatis,a preparation of potatoes, chana masala, dal, sambhar, rasam etc. You have to eat with disposable plates and yes, there is no dessert. There is supposedly a beach front Chinese restaurant and a pool side cafeteria. Both are closed during our visit. The resort is host to thousands of birds during the evening. So whatever your car's colour, be prepared for a white vista in the morning. Wonder why no one has thought of a covered car park. The water tanks are in an urgent need of cleaning as the water supplied in the room appears dirty. A complaint to the reception brings a litany of woes against the contractor. The staff is friendly though. Small things like hot water in a flask is supplied without any rancour. I have had experience of government run establishments before and I must admit that it has never been very good. This resort doesn't do anything to disabuse me from that long held belief.

Every year during Deepavali holidays we went to your outside Tamil Nadu. Due to Corona, this year we stayed from 13.11.20203 to 16.11.2020 3 nights and 4 days TTDC BEACH RESORT MAHABALIPURAM. Vegetarian Bufet Breakfast and dinner free. Foods are very good. Non veg. also available. Prices are cheap and taste. Swimming pools and children play area are also there. This property looks like hill station and also like forest atmosphere. Rooms are very close to beach. Rooms are spacious. Rates are cheap. They give 20% discount to senior citizen. Staffs are nice and behaved in good manners. In restaurant cash counter, one lady staff behaved in good manner and sincier worker. We appreciate her attitude. They posted security and one fisherman in beach side for our safety. Only thing maintenance. Maintenance are not satisfied. Used plates and tea cups are not remove Infront of rooms immediately and remove one or two days. We noticed in beach, used drinks bottle, plastic tumblers and restaurant spoons and forks are not cleared during our stay. I asked one security to remove this. If they maintain prooerly, it is wonderful resort. Any how we enjoyed in this resort for four days . Our grandchildren are fully enjoyed.

Resort is situated at great location. All the rooms have sea view. We visited with family including kids. Resort have good play area for kids. Though the rooms aren't modern and spacious , food quality is also average, but overall resort is big and well maintained , and right on beach. That makes the stay worth.

It's not the old government hotel, but fully refurbished for Chinese President's visit. Though we went to have lunch we looked around , staff were helpful. Looks nice. Food was very good and affordable at rs 175 for lunch buffet. A decent bar also not expensive. Tips make service great.

I expected the poor service as its TTDC; however wanted a eco hotel next to beach. Beach is not like Arabian sea coast in goa or konkan; its deep and unsafe; so no point booking here. Rooms are basic, needs attention. Bedsheets, mattress, are tossed around making it dirty. Water geyser didn't work, so couldn't have hot water bath as it was getting late to start journey. Property is spacious and nice place to hangout. OK to spend 1 day max. Bar is very basic; but at-least you get something handy.

The room did not have ac, the bed and bed sheets were dirty, the room service person was always expecting tip from us, I don't recommend this to anyone who are looking forward to nice stay and experience. I got a nasty room even though i booked in advance, the guy in the front office had an arrogant attitude, overall i had a bad experience you can choose to stay in other hotels which are available in the same location. with change in staff's attitude and improvement in service,this hotel can do good for the travelers who are looking forward to a pleasant experience.
