Ideal Beach Resort lives up to its name. It in indeed an ideal place to relax and rejuvenate. The resort's beach is clean and well maintained, the gardens are green and rooms are well equipped. The breakfast has a good spread. It is located close to Tiger's Cave, and away from the hubbub of the town. If you have your own vehicle, commuting to Mahabalipuram and back does not take much time or effort. Shore Temple, the Rathas and Arjuna's Penance are all close by. Overall, it was a wonderful 2 days spent at IBR.

Great location, ill-maintained property Great location, ill-maintained property

by Himnit on February 22, 2017

There's so much that can be done with this hotel! It has a quaint and charming vibe badly off-turned by the poor maintenance and lack of attention by the care takers. The breakfast buffet is just average, nothing to look forward to. In fact, if turn up a bit later than normal, be prepared for cold food. We ate just to fill our stomachs. For dinner we chose to go a-la-carte which was a much more decent experience. The reception staff is very pleasant and helpful. Poolside is a nice place to hang out at. But the rest of the property needs attention. The rooms hardly have any natural light and come across as rather mouldy and damp. Though we loved the warm ochre yellow walls combined with a lovely forest green highlights in the room decor. The private access to the beach is quite a blessing since it offers you a comparatively less-crowded patch on the beach otherwise filled with temple devotees. Especially useful if you want to visit the beach once it's dark. The path is decently lit and it's a magical experience to be there with the waves shining under the moonlight. All in all, we chose to overlook the weak points of the place and enjoy it, we didn't find it completely worth the money that we paid mostly because of the food and the dinginess of the rooms.

Quirky is good Quirky is good

Stayed for 4 nights for a conference. Welcoming reception after a long and ardous journey. It is an ex British military camp so the rooms are in ex army pods. There is range which probably relates to the level of seniority in the forces: from the lower ranks to the officers . We were in a basic pod. However the bed was extremely comfortable as the mattress were new and made from memory foam. The rooms were clean and always smelt of a lovely incense which I discovered was the floor cleaner. The electrics werent great so I had to have my appliances charged up at reception. Not a huge issue. Breakfast is basic but suited my needs. We had 2 evening meals which we really enjoyed. Beers were 250 Rs. Fridge in room. The staff can not do enough for you. Thank you to Arun, Priya and her colleagues at reception. The manager runs a tight ship and is extremely professional. When you leave there is a bit of hassle from the cleaners wanting tips to move bags. He stops all that. I liked the hotel. It was unique, friendly, safe and a far cry from the sterility of the major players in the town. I wanted an Indian experience and this hotel delivered. Thabk you

Good location, run down property Good location, run down property

by Nel T on February 8, 2017

The location of INDeco Hotel Mahalibaripuram is great. Situated in green surroundings, it is near to the city centre, the temples and restaurants. It is also near to the sea shore temple and has private accesss to the beach. The hotel itself, however, is not good at all. It is a poorly maintained, run down property in serious need of renovation. Rooms are dark and mouldy, ac is hardly working. Breakfast is reasonable, but the buffet dinner disappointing. Staff are friendly, but service slow and very inefficient: does it really take 55 minutes to prepare a sandwich? I would not recommend this place,

Pongal getaway Pongal getaway

by Prathap_McCall on January 15, 2017

Had a short stay at this resort during the long Pongal weekend. Hotel is located very close to the sea shore temple and also has private access to the beach. Being a pet friendly hotel is another plus to the hotel.Hotel has an extremely friendly front desk staff. The food and beverage service staff were initially a bit rigid but went along with us well during the later part of our stay. Food was decent considering the price being paid but the time taken for serving them was a bit slower than what was anticipated. Things they may want to consider for a better rating would be to keep food & beverage dining options open 24/7 atleast with a skeletal menu than refusing orders because the kitchen was closed. We tried ordering food late at night (11:00 PM) to learn this, but the situation was well taken care of by a gentleman working the late shift who managed to get us some rice dal and Gobi 65. Even the breakfast buffet was closed by 10:00 ...sadly we thought we could get breakfast till 10:30 hrs. The hotel Needs an upgrade of the facilities like the pool and play area as they have been overused and have started looking tired. Spa rooms looked really unappealing and a friend of mine literally walked off from there as the masseurs were not well trained nor the room was well equipped. Had a chance to meet the GM of the hotel who has recently joined this place. He was extremely friendly and easy to approach. He went out of his way to invite us for the Pongal celebrations they had organised and also ensured our four legged friend was having a good time as well. I would like to wish him good luck with his new assignment and I am sure he would bring in a visible change in the service standards in my next stay with them.

My three days stay - Detailed review My three days stay - Detailed review

by Sudarshan V on December 31, 2016

Positives: Friendly staff, Above average breakfast, location of the place, massage center, kids play area Negatives: Priority and importance to foreign nationals over Indians(easily seen during breakfast/in general cefeteria folks support) Poor maintenance of rooms, no air circulation in the dome style rooms, wasp issue, king sized bed is not a single peice, but 2 single beds joined, so not comfortable during sleep. Even room change was not addressed properly. I wish to come back for the fond memories but there is a concern of the room health.
