“Wonderful day by the pool, great staff!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 November 2011

We spent the day at Mango Hill and used their pool mid-week. The staff was helpful upon arrival and it was a terrific day. We had a wonderful lunch by the pool and had the place to ourselves on a monday. So many healthy and homemade baked goods and cheeses were fantastic. They even sell their homemade cheeses. The pool was very clean, and the grounds we nicely maintained. We forgot to ask to see a room but from what we saw outside and within the restaurant, it was nice.

Stayed November 2011, travelled with family

I had a 3 day holiday with family at Pondy. Mango hill was perfect place to relax and unwind.

The kids and we all had great fun in the pool that over looked out thai cottages. The island in the middle of the pool looking rather cute.

Food in the restaurant was average. Esp the breakfast can be made much interesting.

Also there are dogs and cats running around freely ...sometimes that can be a problem esp if u are with kids.

There is no ac in the thai cottages....

Mango Hill has a beautiful website. Their rooms are very spacious and comfortable though it does not look elegant and luxurious. I went with 4 other friends to this place.. The hotel has a nice big swimming pool but was highly chlorinated. The Hotel is also close to the sea and provides a good view from the balcony of the rooms. The rooms are value for money.

When we reached the hotel, we ordered some beer and sandwiches which they readily served..Surprisingly for dinner they were not ready to serve food in the rooms though they said they could only serve drinks. One of the rooms did not have towels in the bathroom...Food was very bland as there were a lot of foreigners who were staying here. Breakfast buffet had absolutely no spread except for toast

Room Tip: Look for food outside the hotel if you prefer spicy food. Also the management/employees lack a servi...

It is the best hotel available in Auroville Street. Only problem with this place is that they don't have Air conditioned rooms. Also they don't serve liquor in the hotel.

Apart from that hotel is constructed beautifully with amazing swimming pool.

Try their food which is quite different in taste but good.

Room Tip: Take your drinks by yourself.

I planned for a budget trip to pondy, after staying in Zuri Resort i Kumaragam a couple of months before this trip, i wanted 1 such good experience, obviously with a little sacrifice, shockingly i found this hotel on net and i was impressed immediately i rushed to the hotel and i found that it was run by a french family and they gave us a warm welcome and a wonderful staying experiences. i should not forget to mention that got more than what i expected. the morning breakfast and the swimming pool worth the mention. the rooms(cottage category) was so spacious with simple but elegant look. they were also brilliantly maintained.

Decent place. Good location and architecture. Cleanliness can improve. Very poor selection of food for vegetarians.
Staff are friendly but untrained. So service will have to be seeked. Great pool to relax.

We booked Mango Hill without any expectations. We stayed in one of their Air-conditioned suites. The Thai cottages are non-AC. The check in was smooth (although I confirmed only over phone). Rooms were spacious, with a large sit-outs (though nothing worth looking over). It was quiet and the pool was all ours except for another family. I would say this was one of the best pools I've seen and the staff were non-intrusive and we had loads of fun in the pool.
Service was OK and we had a nice walk outside the property one morning and is full of trees and farms. Breakfast was OK and was included in the room fare for us. So no complaints there. Room service was almost not there and no beach access. But if you want some quiet from the crazy days in the city, this is the place to be. Definitely worth the money..

Room Tip: Ask for rooms overlooking the pool..
