No rooms were beach facing. In fact there was ocean about 200 meters from room which was meant for fisher men and not for a beach holiday. No valet parking. Strictly not recommended. Food was good but buffet breakfast was oily. Property is bang on east coast highway seems only advantage to me.

Room was excellent and location was good. Service was good and no restrictions on timings good for couples. Food was good and I would prefer people especially couples to have a stay in this hotel in Pondicherry. Go for it and enjoy your time it is a very good place to stay with the ambience.

This hotel is right at the entrance to Pondicherry if you drive in from Chennai. The beach views are simply amazing and it has been recently renovated so makes for an excellent stay. Do not expect the best of service here, but the place is so calm and beautiful that it is inevitable that you get addicted to this hotel.

Heard that there is going to be tent houses soon. Please provide more information, rooms need to be clean and room service need to be improved. We found even restaurant service has to be of better standard. Improvement in security is needed.

Stay at the hotel was very nice. I stayed there for two days. Location wise, it was good. Appearance of the hotel was fine. Booking was done directly and there was no problem that I have to wait to get the room there. I booked only one room there. Rooms were very clean and well maintained. I preferred my meal outside the hotel. Staff behavior was helpful and friendly. There was no outdoor activity available. I will recommend this hotel to my friends and other tourists. I am totally satisfied with the amount of money I have spent at the hotel. I visited there with my family in the month of January and it was a relaxing trip.

Though qaulity of food is good but Cost is bit expensive.
Front office staff too helful and guided us really good about the city.
Sea view rooms are awesome, spacious, clean and gives u a relaxing view.
Need more in house activities or some atleast some beach activities at the hotel.

We (Me and Wife) reached the hotel in peak summer on a scorching sunny day. weary we headed to our room and were given the best treatment possible by the staff. Room was ready and took no time for checking in. Shows the front office staff as well as back office boys were prompt and upto mark. Resot has got its own private beach you can hang around , let yourself sit next to shores or just enjoy their beautiful garden. Private beach access is allowed till 6 in evening and they were very particular about it. Good to see guard enforcing that , that too very nicely. Very pleasant experience altogether.

Best Experience: Room service was prompt. They used to maintain the place impeccably well. Restraunt staff reached out to us and stretched themselves a bit to feed us slightly beyond their stipulated hours. They got us a complimentary cake when they came to know I am going to be a year "older" at their place.

Worst Experience: Thankfully no. Guys were very helpful and accommodating. A truly pleasant stay to remember. Wish I can make few trips in near future. Thanks a lot guys , turning older wasn't so bad courtesy you guys.

If Puducherry is called the salad of south India then without bit of doubt Pondicherry Ashok Beach resort is perfect dressing for the salad..... Being a Govt hotel I had this presumption of 'ye tho sarkari hei yaar attitude' you know...The FIRST MISTAKE....You will start savoring the taste of hospitality from the main entrance of the resort....PERFECTO!!! Amble parking space, precisely speaking shut your eyes and park your TRUCK, LORRY HA HA...I mean your vehicle left right or center!!!! let me guarantee you that there wont be scratch....that is the kind of parking space they are having....
It is not my first visit to a beach resort...out of my experience with beach resorts till date i had my doubt of getting a sea view room....But at The Ashok they wont say that they will manage to get you sea facing room if we can wait for some time.....Absolute no!!!! Here you need not worry of getting a sea facing room because all the rooms they are having are absolutely sea facing...Zero Discrimination!!!!

From the reception till the maintenance department you will never realize the fact that you are staying in a govt. resort..... in fact the staffs out there are so friendly and understanding that they will not let you feel that...GOOD Work guys....

View from the resort is absolutely fabulous in all the ways...it has got special charm during the mornings...a different one during the afternoons & and an outstanding gorgeous evening...And if you are lucky like me to stay in Ashok during full moon then i would simply say wOOOOWWW.....out of the world... people say that will happen only in dreamzzz.....Utopia is just imaginary.... Say no and a heavy no to those people who have got no idea that there is beauty on earth...not in their imagination...it surely exists... The Ashok Beach Resort....

The best part is about their flexibility...there you will here less no of 'NOs' unlike other so called reputed hotels...candle light dinner on the beach?? Yes...Romantic Escapade??? yes possible....Wanna enjoy the Bonfire sitting beside the beach on the greeny lawns with your friends and GIRL Friends??? Yes....A Big Yes....you say it they just do it for you...

In the restaurant which is also a sea view has got its well designed and engineered menu..which will let you savor the French colonial food as well as various other cuisines fused....But the best part is that you will have to just tell the chef what taste you prefer,what is it that you want at that point of time... he will get you the best food for your taste buds...trust me...

Much more to share.....my stay was 3 nights and 4 days...was kinda best time we had at The Ashok.... We will for sure go back next year...Thank you everyone out there who made our stay a memorable one....Cheers guys
