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.

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.

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.

Booked this hotel for one night. Positives - 1. Access to beach and shore temple. There are cultural programming held every year and easy access to it. 2. Shops nearby. 3. Hotel service. 4. Restaurant is very good. 5. Staff is very helpful. Manager to watchman all deserves hundred points. 6. Vast property, good facilities for recreation, good ambience. Negatives. 1.Rooms are very dark. 2. No WiFi in the room. You need to go to reception. 3. Mobile signal too weak. 4. Very old construction. 6. TV is for namesake. Looks like Tamilnadu government free TV.
