Hotel was average. We stayed there for 2 nights. I went there with my family in November or December. Rooms were average. Nothing was complimentary. Room service and staff service was average. Reception people were also average. Look wise, hotel's appearance was very good. Hotel was very close to the beach. Location of the hotel was very good. There was no room view. Food and drink was below average. They do not have any activity. This is just a relaxation trip. I had taken the number through Google then called them and booked the room. There was no problem regarding check in and check out. The property is very good but they are not managing it properly. Maintenance and management was very poor. Mamallapuram as a destination is a good place.

Mamalla beach resort is one of the old well located resort. Its not well maintained in aspects of lawns, gardens etc.... but the rooms are good enough though small in size good enough to be compared with the best resorts around... The USP of this resort is the location. A bit far from the town. Ideally located in the beach with good view.

Not much of activities but good place to sit and enjoy the sound of the waves .. the waves are high current and not suitable for a swim... better not to get into the sea....

The rooms are located a bit away from the beach and do not have a good view of the sea... the restaurant is located near to the beach and have a good view of the beach. The food is good specially dinner is arranged on Saturday an Sunday .. good buffet with good spread of non veg and veg items.

The pool is quite good and well maintained..

The major problem with the resort is staff are not well trained and don't know good English .. communicating is a bit problem.. also better to choose the pool view rooms as the other rooms do not have a good view.

This is an excellent hotel to stay. Food is good. Hospitality is excellent. Employees care for their customers. All sites are very close from this hotel. So the tourists should not engage auto-rikshaw or any other vehicle. They just need to walk. Mahabalipiuram is a very small place. So all the sites are within about 1 Sq. Km. Hotel rooms are clean. For the type of place, I feel they should become little economic. As the rates are high when compared to the type of place it is. Hotels in the vicinity are very cheap. May / June is not the time to visit this place. It is very sultry and hot. probably winter should be the best season to visit South. Hotel has a small swimming pool, but is good.

The goods about this resort....

1. Good location, swimming pool, private beach.
2. You have ducks roaming around & doing no harm to general public.
3. Good food & have good arrangements near the beach.

The bad & worst.

1. Air conditioners are very old & do not run.... If they run, they don\'t maintain temperature or they don\'t give cooling effect.

2. In TV you don\'t get much channels, except the Tamil one\'s.

3. Room service is very poor. They take long time for your order to be fulfilled. (even for a small cup of tea / coffee,). I ordered tea & it took close to 30 mins for them to deliver & it was more of water than the milk.

4. The double bed room for couples is like two single beds & that\'s very uncomfortable for a couple to sleep. Just because two single beds are joined & they have a lineage between them.


Overall it was a mixed response, but will never go & recommend to anyone.

Terrible experience. The reception staff cheated us with the room rent at almost double the price they charged others(4500 for a day), under the pretext that it was a package which included breakfast and dinner. However, dinner was HORRIBLE with spoiled food. They wouldn't let me speak to the manager and when i complained, reduced the room rent to what they were charging others, apparently. They asked us to order what we wanted due to the bad dinner buffet and said we wouldn't be billed for it. However, they sent the bill soon after. The pool was okay and the beach is a minute's walk down, which are the only good things about this place. They are cheats so beware. And service is slow and incompetent. Food is below average.

Best Experience: the beach is a minute's walk down

Worst Experience: they charged us double the price others were charged and food and service are terrible.
