My Experience at Taj Vivanta, Fisherman's Cove

Posted Jan 18, 2016
Pros: A waste of money.
Cons: They better give me a free invite for me to step in again.
Location: Mahabalipuram & Muttukadu boating are there.
Regret staying there. No value for the amount of money spent. Very old property with minimal investments for upgrading the rooms. A/C was not working well. TV quality of picture was pathetic. When we asked the receptionist about the Sea Facing restaurant, she told that it gets filled fast & that we should make a reservation. When we got connected to the sea food restaurant from the room, they told that they were completely booked for Friday & Saturday night. Hence, we were forced to take the Friday slot. When I reached the restaurant, I asked them if they also had slots for me on Saturday or Friday & to my shock, they had 2 reservations for Friday & 1 for Saturday. Hence, we were mis-led. Though my package included breakfast, they charged me for breakfast for 2 days & one day they did not. When I found out, they reversed. The funny part is, on one day only one of us had breakfast but they charged for 2, with independent postings. I do not know how many other bills were faked. Though they are by the sea side, their sea food was not fresh. It had smell. The Pork chops were not cooked well. The room bar was not adequately stocked. Had only 2 miniature red labels & 2 pints of Kingfisher beer. Services around the pool were pathetic & were not given the final bills at the time of closing the order. They did not allow me to have extended stay till 2:30PM, inspite of asking from the time I checked in. Overall, I have never faced such disappointments in any hotel

Enjoyable stay. The superior rooms were small especially for two kid's with an extra bed. But the ocean view was great. Rooms are well kept. Swimming pool was Ok. But the beach was secluded and nice. Breakfast was awesome. Overall,Compared to some of the other amazing taj locations where I have stayed this is average to above average.

Beautiful location and ambience

Posted Mar 19, 2015
Pros: Location and ambience
Cons: general condition of bathrooms
The location by the seaside is beautiful and its not too far from the airport for a outskirt hotel. The villas are lovely and its a wonderful experience to be by the beach. Service is excellent. Food unfortunately disappoints and is extremely expensive. The spa is wonderful with some great therapists but tends to be booked out....

Hotel vieillot

Posted Jan 30, 2015
Pros: chambre deluxe, plage.
Cons: le lobby, les restaurant, les chambres charme, la piscine, les allées de jardin, le spa.
Location: rien à faire autour ... Mahabalipuram à 20 minutes
Les chambres deluxes sont magnifiques ça s'arrête là... pour un resort c'est peu... Le reste de l hotel est vieillot et le bâtiment central est affreux. La piscine est moche, les restaurants d 'un autre temps et affichant des prix exagérés ... 15 eur pr un verre de vin !!!(j ai payé moins cher au Park Hyatt Chennai!!!!) Deception totale (à part la chambre)
