We had very bad experience with the Reception staff/Hotel Manager. I have never encountered such an unwelcoming hotel manager. We had several minor unpleasant experience all involving hotel manager but the one that really ruined our mood was related to servicing the room. I had asked for room service on my second day of the stay while going out for sightseeing.. I specifically gave the key and asked for bathroom cleaning and to make the beds. I came back after 6-7 hrs only to find nothing was done. When I complained about it to the manager sitting at reception, he gave some lame excuse. He didn’t even have the courtesy to apologize. Overall I would say its very badly managed hotel. One more thing , Swimming Pool is 8 ft deep. I don’t know which hotel keep’s 8 ft deep pool !! Its extremely unsafe and be very careful if you are travelling with kids. Don’t let them go to pool alone.

These are cheater at hotel. I booked a sea view room and I have been provided a room which doesn't have a sea view. When I enquired, reception informed that this is the name of category only. Totally unethical and I feel cheated. I would recommend not to visit these cheaters who try to fool customers. Room.no.201 dated 30.09.2022. i would have given them zero rating, if it was available.

We took ourselves off to Mahabalipuram for two nights in September 2022. Ideal Beach Resort was highly recommended by friends, and turned out to live up to expectations. Our room was huge, with a big bathroom and a balcony with a stunning partial view of the sea. Everything was neat, clean, and comfortable and everything worked. One grouse is that despite knowing we were a couple with a small child, the resort gave us a pair of single beds and not a double although the buggy driver who brought our luggage to the room called this in to housekeeping when we pointed it out. The resort has its own semi-private stretch of beach, with nice clean sand as well as volleyball etc. and two stands from which pizza and other snacks can be purchased. There are also chairs and tables available. Overall a very nice place to spend an evening. The restaurant is also worth mentioning. The food is very good, and the spread, especially at breakfast, is vast. The buffet at breakfast even had Sri Lankan dishes, including several different sambals, which were very, very good. We were slightly disappointed to find that the choice of fish and seafood was tiny. The fish that we ordered did not also seem to be from the fishermen next door and instead from a freezer. The service at the restaurant was very friendly and reasonably quick. The restaurant was extremely crowded during the time we were there. Despite this the staff were always cheerful and friendly. A big shout out to Mr. Raja and Ms. Fairy who really looked after us. A car is an essential if you want to go around Mahabalipuram. I am not aware if the resort arranges cabs, but I presume they do. All tourist places are not far from the resort, however.

Perfect beach destination. Rooms are cozy . Try to take the sea view rooms. Otherwise you can enjoy gentle breeze from the balcony. We had a lovely stay here. Foods were yummy. Staff behaviour 👌🏻. I give 4 star out of 5, because of the room service charge. We ordered dinner at room as the restaurant was over crowded. I think they charged a little high for room service food. Overall a very happy experience.

Nice location on the beach. Can get crowded at times due to day users. However, the staff are obliging and friendly, though they are rushing around. Senthil is very efficient and handles even last minute requests. The dining room is well managed by Raja. We had lovely Sri Lankan food cooked up by Chefs Suresh and Munusamy. The highlight was the egg appam with different types of sambol

Starting from positive points - great location, near to beach, private beach, kind of clean beach, sheds, chairs are provided at beach. Life gaurd is also provided but not all the time. Big campus with good greeneries inside. Food was also OK and kind of reasonable. What was not well and not expected? One of our room 304 was too dirty, dirty chairs, bathroom you find rust all around, beds are not cleaned and found with dust patches. This was our second visit in 4 years but things have changed, cmon you are a good hotel, not expecting rust, beds not cleaned over ages. Would i visit again? Probably yes because of the favourable location near beach but I would be mindful of not spending more than 6k per night per room, this time I paid around 10k which doesn't make sense for the quality they are offering.
