Reviewed 27 May 2014

It was a nice huge place with flowers n greenery all over. Big property with a big swimming pool which is their main attraction. They have a beach too... Service was good and they were v accommodative too. And rooms were also maintained well. Lots of activities happening and a nice small cozy play area for kids . Overall this is a nice place to travel with kids !

A quick getaway place near chennai. This was my 5th visit to this resort, more to come. The first visit to this place was as a guest after that i became a Zest member. I dont find any difference in the way they treat a member or a guest. Lots of choices for spend time, cricket, volleyball, almost a private beach, a good swimming pool etc Apart from this they have paid activities like wii, xbox, all terrain vehicle, I personally wouldnt suggest as it is not value for money.
Its a great place for family stay during the weekends, they also have loads of activities through out the day. Only thing I find expensive is the food.

We went on a 2 night 3 day holiday to the 'Big Beach' resort of club mahindra @ pondicherry and it was a wonderful time we had. It indeed is the best in the locality and the hospitality of the crew was wonderful. They took tremendous care of my 3 year old daughter and the girls at the activity centre ensured me and my wife got some free time, whilst they played with my little one and kept her engaged. We really enjoyed the peaceful private serene beach of the property and the breath taking view from the swimming pool of the large expanse of sea. The rooms could have been a little larger, the distance from the rooms to the activity centre and restaurant also was a bit too long, however, they very well make up for it buy their superior service and the big beaming smiles that the staff have. The restaurant had some amazing delicacies and the food quality was very good although the prices were exorbitant. They don't have a proper indoor gaming zone..which they should work upon.All & all an amazing experience.Kudos CM...

Room Tip: Choose the ones nearest to the activity centre

Neat & clean resort with adjoining beachj. Nice & friendly staff & good spread of food. Enjoyed the resort as well as meditation at Auroville. Beach is very good but the sea is little rough so be careful if you go bathing in sea.

Room Tip: All rooms are good

Pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness and comfort of this hotel. Recently stayed at Club Mahindra Puducherry with family. Good things first. 1. Sprawling lawn .. wide open area, Private beach, heated swimming pool, good food, supportive staff, good play area for kids, spacious room, good bath room. Now comes some negitives.. There is no wardrobes, No king size bed( They have combined two single beds).. Not a good one for couples. Room service is very expensive.

Very good property and excellent place to spend the holidays. Only negative point is room service is not good as they are serving food in paper plates.No wardrobes no toiletries.Plus point is well organised games, cycling facilities, good oxygen to breathe, garden atmosphere,spacious glass rooms in the middle of the nature gardens and calm and peaceful atmosphere. This made us to stay there for five days and time permits to stay long also from04 may 14 to 09 May 14.
By and large it is a very good resort to stay.
