We had quite a bad experience on the first night of stay the 25th of Dec when we had to change room twice due to problems with toilets. There was not hot water in one and for the second the water was not getting drained from bath area. The general housekeeping of the rooms were also not upto the name or rate.Dust, insects and cobwebs in the rooms. The bedsheets and pillow covers were having many marks and stains. We were then shifted to a 3rd room closer to main entrance which was much better. In fact it appeared that the rooms on the front side are better maintained and normally given to foreigners. The staff shortage in the restaurant could be felt immediately on arrival. You have to wait for ever. The food was good and the breakfast spread was quite sufficient. The location is nice but only good maintenance and cleanliness could attract guests in future.

Room Tip: See the room before accepting and rooms near the main entrance are better.

The sun, sand, sea, Arjuna's penance and the Shore Temple - all within hailing distance... that's INDeco for you.

We had a lovely experience here. The food is very nice and the surroundings simply awesome. The carefully collected antiques, THAT blue prison gate, the 'pond', idyllic setting of open air restaurant; everything was very refreshing from other 'resorts' that one is used to seeing on 'corporate' type of outings.

Recommended if you or your office team is planning an outing in Mahabalipuram.

Room Tip: Best rooms face the sea shore - simple!

You'll love..
Proximity to the beach... Beach is just a walk away and can even be seen from the reception. They have tiled and the road to beach which is pretty cool
The surroundings are maintained very well. Receptionist said this was a British army base in the colonial days. Spacious and greenery all around.
Swimming pool is clear and maintained well. May feel it's a little small esp if you are a good swimmer. Had a kids section which my son enjoyed.
The colonial relics and antiques you'll see here showcase some old artifacts that the british used here. A genuine piece of history.
You won't love...
Rooms are damp, stuffy and this is not what you expect at this price. Looks like they need some serious renovation. they are in contrast to the well maintained surroundings.
Most of the staff are particularly lazy and no service mentality, friendly attitude or politeness. Kind of consistent with my experience in Chennai and around so far. Didn't get the service worth the price tag.
Food - Friendly advise in short. Go for some eatery outside :)
All in all an OK-Good experience. The pros outweighed the cons for me.... overall a good place and will be great if they work on the cons.

The hotel is located just in front of the cave temple and having a good view of sea also. The hotel sorroundings and staff are nice and they boast lot of parties since they are located just in a main tourist city of India.

The hotel is having all the facilities and restaurant is good. But it is bit expensive when compared the locality. But you still get many good restaurants nerby.
