If it is less than 1 we would give that. One of the worst management ever seen in a 5 star. Right from check in to check out, these people don’t know anything. Looks like local 1 star or no star people are involved in the management. I have seen almost every possible great property in this country but these folks no nothing at all. What is a guest welcome ? They dont care!! What is a baggage tag? They dont care!! What is client relationship? They dont care!! What is service? They dont know, they dont bother. What is a compensation? Lol they are too poor to understand anything. Welcomhotel by ITC kences… Unwelcoming to the core. Red alert. Don’t book it folks. You will regret.

Nice property nice beach and pool access near by. Room service was polite and prompt. One Mr Thiyagu was prompt in room service and cleaning since it is a big property distance between reception and room was more thought the service will take time but it was quick and prompt.

This was our 2nd stay in this property in last 2 years. There was a welcome back bouquet in the room when we entered, which was a pleasant surprise. the checkin was smooth, the staff followed all covid protocols at all times. breakfast was good, the staff at the restaurant was attentive and was always eager to help, the restaurant manager(forgot the name) was always around to ensure good experience. The dinner buffet was a let down, looked and tasted a bit tired, the staff however tried to make it up by getting us freshly cooked gravies, which worked. next time, we opted for Ala carte, which was better in taste. overall good stay, access to beach and open lawns kept the kids occupied.

This was our second trip to WelcomHotel at Mahabalipuram and thoroughly enjoyed it like last time. It has a great location and once you step out of the hotel you are in the Beach. We were facilitated during Check in by Meenakshi and she was very courteous and helpful in assigning us rooms close by as we were 3 families with kids. Resort was completely full but she managed to find us rooms close by . Thanks a lot Meenakshi for this. These small things really makes ones vacation memorable and not to forget the Flower Bouquet in the room welcoming us back in the resort. It made our day. Overall service was great and could see lot of effort being put by the team to make everyone stay as comfortable as possible especially during these COVID times. For sure will plan for another vacation here. Thanks again WelcomGroup for the hospitality.

Room Tip: Choose Garden Bunglows. They are closer to the Beach and are bigger rooms than Garden Cottages.
