Overall excellent. Our top choice for next year vacation. Right from check-in to check-out, every interaction with the staff is very professional with levels I have seen only in foreign countries. Unlike other places where I have stayed, this place doesn't nickel and dime you. Our best vacation yet. As a vegetarian, the menu gets boring fast, but the preparation is top class excellent that you don't mind the boring menu. The whole property is spotlessly clean with flowering plants and green grass all around. Pool is the center piece and it shows in it maintenance.
We had a wonderful stay at le pondy. Service is excellent. The only thing i felt average was the food. The buffet lunch and dinner was of average taste for the price charged. Overall i woud rate le pondy as very good. They have a private beach which is very neat. Garden, pool, dining area and rooms are very well maintained.
Le Pondy was a wonderful experience. very happy with room quality and we all enjoyed the stay there. I would suggest hotel to put up more photographs of their website which will give the actual feel of the hotel which is currently not visible. The staff was hospitable and actully we did not feel like going out as the hotel was very nice. very nice swimming pool.
Le Pondy is located farther from Pondicherry but does provide a scenic beauty of Ocean and Lake. The Private beach, as promised by hotel, is being maintained and provides a serene atmosphere. Hotel premises is clean and neatly maintained. The Service staff live up to the expectation. Though the choice of food are limited, the staff is good and Chef gives personal attention and tries to reach out to every hotel guests. As far as areas of improvement are concerned, the hotel should have good balance of TV channels that they provide. Currently it is more dominated by regional channels.
It is a great place for a weekend ,the staff is one of the most friendliest I have come across. I guess I have had a great stay and my daughter really enjoyed the stay more than anybody else.

The resort itself is beautiful with with a private beach. The resort is luxurious without being ostentatious. I really loved the blend of tradition with modern in the architecture. The restaurant inside could do with a additions to the menu. It would be a perfect spot for a family vacation or a honeymoon.
We are not that kind of people who r interested in bricks and monuments. We love nature and nature identical destinations. Didn't had much to do or see in white town Pondicherry, except for visiting few churches, cathedrals and one off eating out. we were largely confined to this lovely resort le Pondy. They have private beach, we all loved sitting and playing by the sea side. Evening we spent sitting in their marvellous balcony enjoying divine evening sea side breeze. Due to our laziness and may b we were "tired" couldn't visit paradise beach, which required boating.
All of us specially my kid enjoyed the stay at Le Pondy. The staffs were very accomodating and the ambience too good. A la carte orders take some time but the buffet spread was decent. The room was neat and clean. The private beach access is the USP. Overall , had a good stay at Le Pondy.
A lovely property on the beach with private access to the beach. However it seems to be neglected for a long time with the management not showing much interest to invest in it. The staff serving you aim to please and are trying very hard to do their bit but lack the passion. Rooms are average (rates are far higher than a five star hotel in Mumbai!) but clean with a comfy bed. Toilets have basic toiletries and we were not given a hand/ face towel, just a box of tissues. The sea facing rooms have a lovely balcony where we spent quite a bit of time with a cup of coffee. However other than that and watch TV that there is nothing else to do. The game room has a snooker table but the cues are broken, the TT table has no ball, the carrom board lies in the corner. No attendant to even help in the game room. So if you just want to chill or have a large group to hang out with and play on the well manicured but small lawn it's ok. The welcome letter alluded to an Olympic size swimming pool. The pool is far from that but a good dip pool for you to wade in and have a beer on the side. There is a kids play area which is decent. The pool villas have private pools but no view. We were offered to be upgraded to this but stuck to the sea view smaller room. A decently stocked bar is available. Food is not bad coz we stuck to snacks. Breakfast was adequate but staff don't understand English very well. So if you want an egg or dosa stand at the live counter and give your instructions yourself. Filter coffee is very good. It's 30 mins from Pondicherry town so you can easily go if you have a vehicle. There is no public transport. We kept a car for the entire trip from airport to airport which was most convenient. You can get one from outside the airport at Fast track. Don't book through the report. They forgot to send our car!
We were booked into the top grade of room with a. small private pool and courtyard but we were disappointed that there was no view - we asked for a downgrade to a room with a view, but it was a weekend and all rooms were full. The food was good, but there were lots of small things that were poor which together spoilt the experience : light that was broken, shaver socket broken, locks that didn't work; room servicing poor. Also the hotel was too far from Pondicherry - the main focus for our visit. As a foreign couple this was the wrong hotel and the wrong room for us. It would be great for families wanting a beach resort - but the maintenance of the rooms is poor for this class of hotel. Our suite of rooms had 8 chairs, but not 1 had a cushion and the day bed had no back cushion. All these things would be easy to fix - but poor maintenance has been reported on many earlier reviews, so I hope the hotel management take these comments as constructive suggestions for improvement. On the positive side the staff in the restaurant were very attentive.
