Food items were costly. Snacks and drinking waters in the room they charge twice to thrice. While vacating room they ask housekeeping people to check the snack and cool drinks are used for billing. While we sitting in check out counter. Annoying. For 1-liter drinking water and snacks packet they charge. Better to keep those items in separate snacks store on the campus. They told some weird dressing code for swimming pool. For that, we can't wear cotton materials. They told it may change the pool watercolor. Thinking that their customers wearing clothes of that quality. Ok. They sell swimwears in nylon. Charging for men shorts and for women set. That can be bought for less price in rental than the street. Worst resort management. I enjoyed only one think their beach side service.

This is not the first time Am staying at Ideal. But of late cleanliness had to be improved basis the kind of tariff which is equivalent to a five star hotel

UTTIO GUPTA , Jul 23, 2019
Rooms are good and spacious, clean bathroom. Best part is the private Beach and swimming pool facilities specially for children. Plenty of options in complementary breakfast. Though service is a bit slow but enjoyed the stay. Nice experience.

The Resort is located near Mahabalipuram. It's clean and provides u great hospitality. The hotel staff were very helpful. The surroundings are filed will beautiful landscapes and the private Beach with a Beach restaurant is an added advantage for the Resort. The food was good too. We could not find anything that the hotel lacks. Will surely recommend my friends.
Awesome Resort for families

One of the best Resort in Chennai, private Beach is very good and maintained very well.
Overall a good stay
Karthick Kumaran , Jul 12, 2019
Me and my wife stayed and it was a good romantic stay me and my wife enjoyed a lot. The welcome drink was not that good but the room was big and clean I asked for a single bed and they provided a twin bed for couple which was bad. The dinner at the restaurant was very costly so we went out to a different restaurant but complementary breakfast was good with more varieties. Over all 4 stars.

Cost of the food is not Worth for quantity and quality.
Md Arban , Jul 02, 2019
Very rude front desk staff. Don't even have the basic knowledge of first listening to the query and then give the solution
Emjoyed stay in Sea facing room
GURUDATTA TIRODKAR , Jun 24, 2019
Nicely decor and well maintained property with beautiful Sea facing. Rooms and bathroom are quite big in comparison with other resorts. Food quality hospitality and service was excellent. Sharing some improvisation room service menu need to have variety of dish offerings need to have more variants of fish Fish gravy need to be in red yellow gravy with proper spice Water bottle need to be at least of 1 lit pack.
Cozy stay at Ideal Beach Resort
SEEMA INDULKAR , Jun 24, 2019
Stay in deluxe room to have pleasant view of sea and garden. Big comfortable size room with extra big size bathroom. AC need to be of adequate capacity to chill the room, but because of 2 ceiling fans problem was not that great. Two things which we feel discomfort Are:- Restaurant need to be AC There need to better variety in room service menu. Fish gravy with cashew paste was testing horribly worst. Being blessed with sea shore and having only two variety of fishes is also mood spoiler.

Good Resort with all facilities
sivasankar narayanan , Jun 22, 2019
Nice and spacious. Hospitality was good. Room was spacious and clean. View from room was good. Beach was clean and had a private life guard. Food was too costly. Please don't try coffee.
Awesome Resort accessible to Beach
Manish Kotnala , Jun 19, 2019
This property is one of the best, rooms are spacious and staff is courteous. Just a min walk away is the Beach from your room. If sky is clear you can watch beautiful sunrise.

Overall great experience
Santhosh Devangi Surendra
The people at the Resort like reception, Ideal Beach resort and Beach cafe were very courteous and polite. They were prompt to attend to all our requests. The open shower was amazing. Bathing under the stars was an awesome experience. The private Beach was the best part of the stay. Could spend hours with no worries. Could sit at the Beach until 10 PM which was good. The food was tasty and the breakfast had a good variety of options. However one word of caution, some of the rooms have an affluent plant pungent smell. We were initially given one such room, on request they promptly changed it to a better one. Overall a comfortable and happy stay.
There is an affluent plant somewhere close by to the rooms, the first room we were given had a pungent smell in the bathroom, after requesting them they gave us another room which we were very happy with. However this problem does exist in some rooms.
Excellent getaway for a day
We were looking for a quick getaway during Diwali. Searching in Make My Trip, this was the closest one to Chennai with all the amenities we were looking for. We had been there previously 2 years ago for lunch on a trip to Mahabalipuram and were impressed by the resort and the beach. We stayed in a garden view room which was close to the pool. The room was spacious for two adults and two kids. The bathroom was spic and span. We checked in by 2 pm and after lunch spent some time in the pool. Later we went to the beach and it was so relaxing. We had dinner at the restaurant which was a little expensive but very tasty. The breakfast buffet the next morning was splendid. There were so many items - south Indian and western cuisine. Overall the stay was a pleasant one and would love to go there every year for a short stay.
Enjoyable. It was awesome
Had a wonderful stay there at Ideal Beach Resort. From the reception till check-out, everything was good. The staff were courteous. They responded without any murmuring, though there were lot of guests during Weekend. The ambience was very good. The Sea view first floor deluxe room was so cool, especially the balcony. Room was spacious. The private Beach was a good place to sit and watch the Sea, or to walk Around and to play in the waves. Complimentary breakfast was also good. In the negative Side, mineral water was chargeable, phone was not working, tea was not of great taste. Overall it was a nice stay there.
Great stay on a weekend with family
Beach was very nice had a lot of chapters and shelter. Food was served in the Beach on special request. Swimming pool was too good seems to be dismissed these items can be bought in a shop inside.
Beach had shelter and enough chairs. Food is also provided in beach tables. Pleasant, large greenery with coconut trees. Happy stay for weekend. Breakfast buffet had lots of variety. Very nice. Other food items are costly. Swimming pool is too good. Swimsuit is must. You can also buy those in a gift shop inside. Good parking. No bath towel.
We recently been there with family. Here is my short review. Very very friendly staff. Nice property well managed. Private Beach which is very very well managed. Very decent rooms with all facilities. Easy check-in and check-out as they have separate staff. In Ideal Beach resort pram for senior citizens and kids. Great Beach view Minus Limited options in menu We had little problem with AC. Must visit place. We really wish to go again and again. Thanks for wonderful experience Ideal Beach Resort. Thanks MakeMyTrip for good deal.
Everything was good except the Bill
Vijay Babu M
Stay was comfortable with kids, & especially the food availability is good for those who have kids. Satisfied with service & most of the staff. Beach sit-out was very much comforting & relaxing. . Everything was good except the bill they provided which had no details even after asking for details I got only oral details. Earlier I have had such experience in unprofessional Ideal Beach resorts but never with a star rated Ideal Beach resorts.
Good stay, slow service in restaurant
The Ideal Beach resort is located right on ECR, with direct access to Beach. The rooms are also pretty good. It is a vast property with lots of space to roam around. The restaurant was a bit slow, especially on a weekday when it was hardly 25% occupied. There was lesser staff and all of them were occupied in serving a group from day package. Took over 15 minutes to just take the order. Other than that the stay was a pretty good one.
Overall the experience was good. The room was good, the location very near to Radisson Blu, where I was attending a convention. Food was OK and needed improvement. This is the second time I am staying in this Resort. The room is good and balcony faces the garden and swimming pool. I could glimpse at the Sea partially. Last time I visited the food was great. But this time I found the taste lagging, even in South Indian dishes.
Nice resort, pool closed at 6 pm, please extend it to 8 pm
Aruru Ravindra Nath
The check-in and check-out staff and restaurant staff were nice and friendly. We enjoyed our stay for three people in a garden view bungalow with balcony. TV reception was not good. WiFi worked only at the reception with tech support. My wife stayed mostly in the room though my daughter and I were at the beach. Please consider having better TV reception and WiFi.
Stayed in garden view room which is good and clean with all required amenities. Staffs are good. Kid enjoyed well in the Beach and it has more Beach chairs to sit and relax. Cost is too high in the restaurants inside the Resort. Areas to improve are adding more outdoor and indoor activities which will attract more kids and families.
It is really a good place to stay for weekend. Breakfast is really good starting from pongal, puri vadai, bread toast, it covers everything from south to eastern items. Good trees and huts near beach.
I feel it is little costlier, price can reduced a little more. And should provide 3 litres mineral water a day per person.
Areas for improvement
Not sure why marriage reception happens closer to the room. Heavy sound up to 9.30 p.m due to music and lot of vibration inside the room. The Ideal Beach resort has provided twin cots instead of single cot. The dinner buffet was canceled without advance notice saying that more rooms are occupied by marriage party.
Stay was pleasant . But there is some problem with AC . Which is not according to room size . Management is too cooperative and try very hard to solve problem . Even upgraded room without any additional cost to solve problem . I appreciate it
Great experience, awesome resort.
Nice stay. Check in and checkout was smooth. Complementary breakfast was good with different options.
Superb location, a mind blowing Beach resort. Enjoyed the atmosphere of the resort. I booked through MakeMyTrip. It's Worth of money.

It was a great stay. Loved it. However, there could have been more activities for the guest. Otherwise good.
It was a pleasant experience. The team is doing good job.
Ideal Beach Resort as in the name itself it is quite Ideal property for Getaways. From Beach to restaurant everything is Ideal and Ideal for all types of travellers

Excellent mesmerising. No short comes. It is a really Ideal property made to suit everybody, who wants to get away from urban humdrum.
Pleasure stay we enjoyed. Over all excellent.
Nice place, worth for money, there was nice near my room due to some corporate party. They understood my problem and change me to a deluxe room.
Great place to stay with family
Food is costly. Rest all are superb
Ideal Beach Resort
Food is average. Rooms are good but looks very old.
Good place for family. There could be more play area and slides set up for kids.
