I stayed for in the month of December 2014. We reach in Chennai airport and travel Mahabalipuram. Daily bus service are available and also resort provides the cab service. The hotel is very calm and pleasant for the stay and the service is really great.Rooms and bathrooms are neat and clean. Food is delicious and particularly the Non-Veg sea food variety is awesome. The destination was too good and convenient for me and the appearance was very good.

The service of the staff was very good and friendly, helpful and hygienic. Welcome procedure are also very good, I have seen my name on the welcome board and welcome drink also good. They had a private beach also. Evening they arrange some cultural or musical show. The tariff of the hotel is a bit high but it is worth for the service they provide. The check-in and check-out procedure was done quickly. The stay was satisfied and I wish to recommend to others.

Superb location and excellent beach. Clean and perfect for family weekend. Enjoyed the stay there with excellent service. Lacks a little in water based activities but altogether a good place. Some local people do come in for selling articles. Friendly staff with relaxing oil massage.

The hotel is very calm and pleasant for the stay and the service is really great. Food is delicious and particularly the Non-Veg sea food variety is awesome. While we move to the sea or the swimming pool they are taking much care for our safety. The tariff of the hotel is a bit high but it is worth for the service they provide.

The destination was too good and convenient for me and the appearance was very good. The service of the staff was very good and friendly, helpful and hygienic. They were quick attentive and more concern about the guest. The room allotted to me was very comfortable. It was spacious and hygienic especially the bath room was excellent. All the amenities were available and it was working well. I got a beach view from the room. The breakfast was complementary and the food was good and they served in buffet system there were both vegetation and non- vegetation. There were many activities in the hotel and it was much enjoyable. The check-in and check-out procedure was done quickly. The stay was satisfied and I wish to recommend to others.

Staff behaviour was good. Hotel was situated very close to the beach. Room was spacious, neat, clean and well-maintained. I think per day tariff of the hotel was Rs. 6000. From my room, no view was visible. I had no problem during check-in and check-out facility. I took veg food in the hotel. Swimming pool and bar were available in the hotel. I travelled there with my family in the month of September 2013. Transportation facility was available there. Hotel was value for money. This is a recommendable hotel for other travellers. There should be some improvement in cleanliness.

I stayed for in the month of July this year. It was great to be in a hotel full of greenery everywhere and also with access to a lovely beach. The ambience only added to the excitement of meeting friends of old, many of them after 20 years. The room was great and bathroom was even better and the service was immediate and there was someone to open my room with a master key even at midnight (which was when I discovered that I had misplaced my room key). The complementary breakfast was sumptuous, the food on the menu was OK, good enough for a short stay. The fish dishes which I had were the best on the menu. If you visit this hotel, there was a lovely little place which showcases authentic South Indian traditions and arts called Dakshina Chitra, which was perhaps about 5 km from the hotel. It was well worth taking a room with a Jacuzzi if budget was not a concern or if you were on a short stay and the whole bathroom experience was quite amazing.

I had an excellent experience in this resort. I booked my room directly. There was no delay in check in and check out procedure. From outside and inside look of the hotel was very good. It was very near to the beach and nearby Mahabalipuram. Staff service was good. Everything was excellent there. Room was good but not too spacious. It was hut kind of thing. Swimming pool, gym, games like volleyball or everything they had. Indian, continental or everything was provided in food. It is a recommendable hotel to others. Location wise, it was excellent. Appearance wise, it was also excellent. Booking and front office facility was excellent. Staff service was excellent. Food and drink was also excellent. Activities were excellent. As a tourist place, Mahabalipuram is an excellent place. I travelled there in July 2014 along with my friends. It was a relaxation trip.

Ideal Beach Resort was a superb place to stay close to the beach. They had a private beach. Went with family for a weekend and loved it. I am eagerly waiting for our next stay there. The service was fabulous. Food was great with many varieties. Overall, a great experience.

Rooms are spacious, neat and tidy. Even the towels are as good as a new one. All sorts of entertainment at one place. You will be amazed to see the variety of food and tastes, as good as being at home. It is ideal for the couples/ family to get entertained. Just a km from the beach. The place is very well maintained. It is mostly occupied by foreigners. Need to book well in advance. Overall, the best resort in Chennai. Nice place for newly married couples.
