Mamalla Beach Resort
Ranked #15 of 27 Hotels in Mahabalipuram
Reviewed 9 June 2014

Since our yerrkadu Trip got cancelled, suddenly decided to take children to some beach resort for the week end. After searching the net and Trip advisor and also from one of my friend's advise, decided to go to Mamalla Beach Resort, though it had lot of Negative comments also in the TripAdvisor decided to take a risk.Started saturday Morning in my Car from Madipakkam reached Muttukad Boat House,enjoyed the speed boat and then visited Dakshin Chithra Heritage Museum. Had lunch at Sangeetha which is adjacent to Dashin Chithra. After Lunch hit Crocodile Bank. Children were thrilled to see different Crocodile,Baby Anaconda and other REptiles. It was almost 3.20pm and verymuch tired due to sultry weather, decided to Check in before the Schedule and reached the resort at 3.40pm and immdly got the room, which we booked a day before.It is a Standard A/c room with Sea View. Wow the room was fitted with Brand New Hitachi and cooling was really excellent and Beds also comfortable.After relaxation around 5pm went for Swimming in their Big Swimming POol. After that went to their Private Beach and enjoyed upto 7pm and they served coffee almost on the seashore, which was really an awesome experience.
In the night we had Buffet Dinner which was also on the Open Seashore Restaurant and variety of food which was ok. Next day early morning again ventured in the beach and had Tea and coffee on the shore. After that again children had swimming in their pool and had our Buffet brakfast which was not so good.Then went to Mahabalpuram to see the Sculptures. REturned around 12.30 had rest and checkout by 3.30pm. Hotel Location and Sea side is excellent and clean. Dinner is ok, but breakfast need to be improved. Rooms is Ok. Service is good. Yes we may visit again.

Room Tip: If you want a sea view go for Standard Rooms, as Deluxe rooms will have only Pool View and ask for F...

Mamalla Resort is a calm place to relax on the sea side. Located near Mahabalipuram, it has simple but spacious rooms. Lot of open space for walking around, having get togethers, parties or simply sit and watch the sea and its waves. Staff are generally courteous. Any complaint is addressed immediately.

Evening or early morning walk in the sea shore is a great energising experience. One can walk upto Mahabalipuram enjoying the movements of fisherman entering into or coming out of the sea. Swimming pool is also available. Has a meeting hall with nice lawn before it. Enjoy being there facilitating learning events.

Room Tip: Rooms near the poolside are good but one cannot have a view of the sea. Otherwise, choose first floo...

excellent location. but the attitude of the reception staff is really really on the negative. food and accomodation was not worth the money AT ALL. Indians pls avoid this hotel. only foreigners are well treated in this place. A very bad experience. Location
The only good thing about the resort is it's location. It is next to the beach where you can spend some quality time. But for spending quality time other ingredients which were required were missing. They are as mentioned below
Hospitality / Courtesy
My understanding that those in Hotel Business need to be courteous to there customer was totally gone for a toss. The service managers there seem to be very arrogant while talking. For fulfilling any request it was as it they were doing favour to us.

Food - Not very good ... ok - ok , if you can survive on rice and sambhar

Service - Pathetic
Not even once our request was completed in the specified time by themselves.

Staff - Arrogant and rude even to the ladies and kids.

Pricing - High
As per the service, food, amebience offered price is very high

Time of stay
2 nights & 1 day in March 09

Room Cleaniness
Bathrooms were nightmare ... with no cleaning

Overall feedback and rating
Below Average ..

I am writing this review so that people who are planning for the visit are aware in advance of above issues. I did'nt had the lucxury of going through such first hand experience .. hope it will be useful in planning your visit

Room Tip: near to beach are the best

For day or with family and chill, this resort is worthy. Suitable for both family and friends. Buffet lunch is good as expected, decent varieties. Beach is also good. Bathrooms and toilets were not as expected which requires attention.... IT HAS A VAST EMPTY SPACE FOR PAYING OUTDOOR GAMES AND THE RESORT PROVIDES PAYING STUFF FOR FREE. 600 rs package doesn't include swimming pool, we need to pay 100bux extra for it. Overall it was a pleasant stay..

Yesterday we had a really wonderful time at the resort. Coming back from Italy after 13 years is sometimes hard to digest dirty and dusty places all over Chennai. The Resort was clean green and welcoming. All service personnel were smiling and ready help. The children found themselves in paradise. Seated at the clean beach front listening to the waves hitting the shore made this a real therapeutic and nourishing day-off. Don't miss their simple But rich buffet.

The resort location was good, situated on the beach, the resort area clean, but the rooms according to the sizes, the Air Conditioners are not powerful, curtain are missing, but on request they put the curtains, only the service and food quality is excellent, specially those who are not travelling from the south, but according to the room price, it is not worthy.
