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.
