Had a nice experience at MGM. Check in was smooth and staff was friendly and willing to help. Did not have a chance to eat at the hotel, but have heard that the food is very good. Property is very good and perfect for relaxation. Best time to visit is from November to march.
Being the season of wedding had gone to MGM resort Chennai for wedding. First impression the resort is beautiful, beachfront property, great view, two big pools kids and adult. Nice lobby and good play area further coming to rooms they were quite old did not show luxury but okay did not get chance to eat. The food but overall great place to stay.
This is my second time in MGM Beach resort in Chennai. Awesome place to stay. You can enjoy the beauty of Bay of Bengal with privileged way with. Lots of option to enjoy - Bar, food, Playing zone, swimming pool and of course the private sea beach. Overall it was a pleasant stay and I will visit again! Thank you for your hospitality MGM team!
Fantastic location. At the beach itself. You can take a nice walk around. The pool is also great. The arcade room for kids is great with lot of activities. The staff is flexible and courteous as well. The hammock in the facility is great way to relax near the beach. They have good food for veg and non veg.
It was a hectic month so took the time to spend it out in this resort for the weekend which very much turned out to be relaxing one The room was perfect, very cozy and the bed was heaven just sunk in. The best part of the room was the open air bathroom which caught my attention and not the regular hotel bathrooms but it did have that too both indoor and outdoor was well kept The property is huge has its own amusement rides, private beach with quad bikes and a restaurant right next to the beach to make it a perfect evening with your partner The food was good. Breakfast buffet was perfect. And the in-room dining menu was apt and the must try is their chocolate brownie. Overall, an amazing property, has variety of suites and rooms and a well fine spa. So if you're looking to spend time with family or friends. This place is where you want to be.
The behaviour of the staff's was very good. The food was very nice with quality and quantity. The room service was on time. I would recommend this hotel for other travellers. The outside view from the room was nice. There were activities arranged by this hotel. The check in and checkout was done on time. The best part of the hotel was food.
This resort is placed right on the beach and beach is very beautiful which is biggest highlight for this resort. Since I have gone here on peak season Christmas vacation. Probably staff was overloaded so could not enjoy their service much, so for that I would like to repeat the place once again.
No words to say, everything is awesome here. Food, atmosphere, swimming pool, activities, beach, rooms and atmosphere and service and the employees. Overall I can say it is the best place to stay and visit like a day out or for the overnight stay. Had a pleasant stay in MGM.
MGM Beach Resort is situated in the outskirts of Chennai almost close to Mahabalipuram. It's a best place for family get together or Corporate family gathering. We organized our Annual corporate family get together in this Beach resort. We were there for a weekend and we enjoyed the stay and food over there.
The only saving grace for this resort is its location. They have the worst service, an arrogant and rude staff, incompetent people working for them. We had gone over a long weekend and as expected there were huge crowds present and people had been waiting for almost 2 hours to get their room keys. Same happened with us, we waited for almost 2 hours to get into our 'suite'. After hours of waiting on empty stomach, as it was lunch time we finally reached our suite which was not worth the 1000 we paid per night at all The room was hardly a suite. The shower in the bathroom was broken and you had to hold the knob because it would go off at any moment. When we complained about the same, the guy who came in said laughing, yes madam it's broken. Can't do anything about it Then came lunch. The restaurant shuts down at 3 and as we had been waiting for the room keys for the past 2 hrs it was well past lunchtime. Not a big deal we ordered food from their 24hr menu and they took another 2 hrs to get that food to us which was not worth the wait. It was spicy and cold and bad Finally we hit the beach which is the only good thing on this property. In the evening we decided to go to Taj for dinner which is hardly 9 km away. We asked the really polite female, Ms. Gowthami at the reception to call us the hotel cab and what she told us was outrageous. She said that the driver will charge Rs. 1500 for a mere 9 km. Plus the women was so rude Talk about hospitality! We had to eat the hotels shitty dinner and cold Gulab jamuns which the restaurant staff had no idea how to heat up! We checked out the following morning itself My advice to fellow travellers that even if you have to go there don't go on long weekends as they don't know how to handle huge crowds. Try and get a booking at the Taj Restaurant and have your dinner there. Go to Mahabalipuram for some sightseeing and lunch there. You can find amazing seafood in Mahabs at this place called Moonrakers.
