Mamalla Beach Resort
Ranked #17 of 29 Hotels in Mahabalipuram
Reviewed 21 June 2013

Been to the Resorts to spend a day with friends and kids. The Lunch buffet was good but no air-con and the service could have been better. There is a bar which serves beer and outside drinks were not allowed. The restaurant managers could have been more friendly and organized but the front desk was friendly and attentive. There was a small swimming pool but no food and drink was allowed in that area. . The resort was beach facing, but again, swimming was not allowed. pre booking is advisable on week-ends as its over crowded. Over all the resort is just good enough for a one-day stand!

This is our 4th time visit to mamalla resort with family and friends. Compare to the first visit now it improved lot. The rooms and swimming pool are very clean and well maintained. The food quality and taste has to be improved. Compare to last year they have included lot more people so the service is really good. We spent good time in the beach side lawn really best place in the resort. The kids area is really good lot of trees are there so not that much hot. Overall wonderful stay.

Room Tip: all rooms are good

One of the best resort we have been to..Excellent service and hospitality. very well organised by the team and volunteers were available when required. We booked the resort only a week back before the outing date but the arrangements made was absolutely spot on. space was adequate for outdoor games and events. Conference room facility was an added advantage. Food was excellent. Our special thanks to Krishna Raj (MD) who gave us personal attention. Good value for Money and worth spending the day inrespect of business, family or friends

Thanks

Mamalla Beach Resort is situated most convenient when you wish to get rid of the noisy traffic in Chennai and find calm surroundings in the countryside. Along the beautiful beach at Mamallapuram you can go for long walks. If the waves are too big you can swim in the lovely pool that suits children as well as adults. The reception with Mr. Chandran at the desk offers splendid service so that you can visit the tourist attractions you want to see in the area. Only one hour drive from Chennai Airport. The restaurant has a beautiful view to the shore and delivers roomservice whenever you want.

We were looking for a family environment and were very happy to have found Mamalla Resort. A place nearby Chennai, with resonable price, is truly an ideal spot to spend some days with family peacefully. Lots of place for the kids to play. People at the resort are very caring. Good food. On the whole our stay was a memorable one.
People in Chennai suffer permanent power shortage and we were surprised that the Resort had infra structure to provide 24hours power supply.

Booked for 2nights end of May. Didn't show up at airport for booked transfer. So called 'deluxe room' didn't have towels or toilet paper when we checked in. Shower just a shower head onto bathroom floor. Condensation from AC drips onto bathroom floor. Dodgy electric wiring under TV. This is not a resort. More like faulty towers by the sea. Cancelled and booked at a real resort down the road.

The resort is in a good location close to Mahabalipuram and has a very good beach frontage.
But rooms were not that great and we thought it could be more clean and better maintained.
Rooms were old which was ok if it had been better maintained. Service was also average

Pros
---------------
Nice location
God beach
Nice pool
Good food

Cons
-----------
Not well maintained
Rooms were not sea facing due to construction in front of them
