Reviews of The Ashok Beach Resort 3*

Balu P.



Beautiful property with beachfront. But the cleanliness are worst then some of the public toilets. The sheets and pillows wasn’t changed from previous guests and the balcony is covered with birds dropping There are no breakfast buffet and if you want a fruits you need to pay. You can’t step in to the bathroom without slippers The white bath towels are in copper colour. not worth for money

Saravanan C.



The location is awesome just by the beach. But room quality could have been better. Staffs are polite but no one takes time to smile and greet you. Breakfast food is not that tasty.

Anand S



Great, neatly maintained beach resort. Wonderful lawn with a swimming pool to spend the entire night… Went with the team and enjoyed thoroughly

Sowmi A.



Nice restaurant… The placement of resort looks beautiful… Good food… But I'm expecting housekeepers to be available for 24 hrs.

Praveen K.



The resort is located at a perfect location. Nice lawn and swimming pool facilities. The room ambience is not up to the mark and same stands for the food and service.

Akash C.



No disturbance from rest of the world. Perfect place to relax your mind. Have access to the beach directly from their compound. The people are also friendly. The complimentary breakfast provided are of high standard and delicious

Manish R.



Nice beach side resort with lawn, pool and access to beach. Food and service are decent. Ambience is Ok and needs maintenance

Sachin D.



This was a family trip and we were 4 adults and 3 kids, occupied two rooms. Talking about the good thing first: view from premium room is amazing, and separate pool for kids and adults was maintained well. Breakfast buffet was better than average. Beach was almost like private beach and was neat and clean than adjacent serenity beach. Staff was polite and willing to help. Now negatives: No covered parking, plus there was none to assist you for parking and make sure if parking was done at right place … People were parking at random locations causing confusion and blockades for others. Rooms were old and switchboads/ electrical were not well maintained… AC of our room was not working properly, there was no power in few points and to me switch points were outdated. Though pool was regularly cleaned still I saw dead crabs and insects in pool. Though not big blunders but I expected more.

Ginnaram S. R.



We spent two nights in Ashok beach resort. Location is good. Rooms are average and they should be improved for the price we pay. Food is also average and very expensive. And room service also should be improved.

Sadish S.



I visited this place day before yesterday and had a bad experience… The Manager in the reception told us we cannot use both the swimming pool after I paid for the cottage. The cottage was good and service in the restaurant was good too. I was just diappointed with the incident in the front desk regarding the access to pool.

Deepthi S.



Perfect Beach Resort Had been there for my bachelor's party and had once in a lifetime experience! No need of going out in pondicherry… Can stay back in resort and enjoy holiday… Good Food! Good Staff! A perfect resort




Good place. Calm and quite and with helpful staff. However, I felt that they are bit less staffed and specially in restaurant, where during peak hours they work hard to manage the guests. Rooms are renovated room with absolutely stunning view.

Jayakrishnan P.



The ambience of the resort is very nice. Cottage, pool, lawn everything maintained well. Food was tasty and service was nice. Reception people were very hospitality and arranged vehicles as our needs

Raghavan B.



Only reason to go here is the direct beach access. I have been here almost every year for the past 6 years. Rooms haven't been maintained. Staff is not trained well. For e. G when you go to breakfast you can expect 3 of the staff to ask you your room number. Maintenance is poor so watch out as you might step on broken glass. They don't even keep band aid and forget about access to doctor. When ordering more than one pot of tea/coffee to the room, make sure you tell them to bring separate pots. On multiple occasions I have found they give less in a bigger pot (which won't even fill the cups your ordered for) and make a lame excuse if you point it out to them. Please check your restaurant bill at the time of checkout.

Subhechhu K.



Perfect location. Clean well maintained rooms. Clean pool. Even the food was adjustable not as bad as I saw it in reviews. Very well maintained. Perfect for family trip.

Ponugumati A. C.



Good place to visiting. It place near to beach we can enjoying with beach. Clean and neat rooms and also available watch of beach. Swimming pool available. Nice restaurant will get all kind of food.

Abhilasha H.



Location is great… Private beach, fairly clean. Swimming pool facility available… Check if it's included in your package though or you may hv to pay extra. Rooms were good. Restaurant was overpriced and service was quite poor. Food was decent… Some good dishes, some average. Better to eat elsewhere. Some maintenance work required on the property… Smell of sewage in one particular area.

Lakshmi A.



Property location was too good with a private beach. The rooms could have been little larger for the amount they charge. Secondly water logging in the bathrooms. Food is hopelessly bad and priced high. Breakfast is very poor. No change in the menu. Even plates and ice cubes are charged if we ask for extra plates. Most of the time we went out to have food. So senior citizens will have a tough time if they plan to have food here. The chefs have to get training from club mahindra resturant chefs how to cook delicious food, how to present them and pamper the guests. Only one shower near the exit area of the beach. Even that area was water logged. The price is only for the location not for the food, room or their service. On the whole not worth the money.

Aanchal S.



It was an amazing experience over there. Quite far from main city. But worth it. Got it's own private beach

Sunil A.



Pros — lots of open space. Personal beach. Great place if you pick up the new cottages Cons — bit out of the city. Food and breakfast is poor. Normal rooms looked very basic

Yash K.



Best resort I ever visited. They have great service and also has a private beach. The food here is also best in area.

Satyaveer V



This place can do much better with a little bit more upkeep. Quite affordable stay is offered, less on the luxury front. The Kadal Beach Bar and Pondy Restaurant offer some really relaxed view of the eastern coast. Ample parking is also available. Good for large get together too.

Ajith K.



A good place to stay! Bang at the beach! Private beach! Tented cottages were neat. Cleanliness was maintained. The pools were well maintained too. Food and drinks were costly but they allow both to get from outside! So no issues there! Breakfast was good. Overall a good experience!

Reshmi S.



Accessible location close to highway. Clean rooms and a private beach entrance. Rstaurant within offers good food. Peaceful place to enjoy a relaxed stay.

Shreesha P.



The resort is beautiful, to an extent they have maintained it well. But their restaurant is very expensive. Food is also not that great.

Santhosh M.



Clean and Peaceful villas. Morning complementary breakfast is good. Grass play area suitable for cricket and football. Swimming pool is good but with lot of chlorine.

Shauree 5. 7.



Amazing locality! Stayed in the Tensovilla Tent Rooms. Food we pretty bad. But the beach view was amazing (Available for VIPs)

Arunprasath A.



Typical govt undertaking. We visited the restaurant, dishes / ambience are good. Some dishes are not billed but you have to pay separately. Whenever we visit, each time we endup with the billing issue. The servers from other states cooperate well but the locals / the senior ones whom they think are veteran behaves unprofessional. I request the management to sort it out.

Sharad G.



This wonderful sprawling beach front property, has well manicured lawns, and two swimming pools. There's lots of parking space too. There is a small geese and turkey farm for the kids. The cottages (tents-like structures) are spacious and are clean, very well maintained. The rooms have AC, Fan, Geyser, LED TV, and everything works. The restaurant, serves reasonably delectable fare, both vegetarian and non-vegetarian, and the complimentary breakfast is good, with lots of vareity. The bar is adequately stocked too. The only grouse is about the littering by the revellers. The partying is understandable, but the thrash they leave on the lawn afterwards, is disgusting. The housekeeping staff has a really tough time cleaning the place up the next morning. The resort should put in place a strict 'no-littering' rule, and should fine offenders heavily. Overall, a superb place to relax. Highly recommended.

Abhay M.



Nice location. Helpful staff. Easy access to the beach. Not so great: the pool (lots of chlorine) and the restaurant.

Thiyagu S.



It was not a good experience. They charged us 7000 for a standard room. You can see the pictures of the room in the photo I uploaded. Beach access is till 6:30 only. Maintainance was not good. Sofa in the balcony and the room were very dirty. Complimentary breakfast merely had 4 items as buffet. When we compare the price we paid, we don't think that it is worth. Two months before we went to ideal beach resort and we paid the same amount which was much better. In fact there is no comparison between these two resorts. Service was pathetic. We have to call them twice every time let be for water or plates or water bottle anything. The bed sheets were very dirty not clean at all.

Balaji Y.



Great location, access to the beach and clean pool. We stayed in a tented cottage which was clean, comfortable good for overnight stay. Decent breakfast options. Overall 3. 5/5

Murali C.



Fabulous place with large private beach. Rooms are cozy and affordable. Good restaurant with tasty food. And, Bar is a little bit smaller but very nice ambiance.

Amit M.



Good resort… good property… good room… vast​ area. Private beach… you can spend the whole day in resort itself. Only issue is the food… Everything over priced. And taste not worth the money

Hema S.



Good resort. If you are planning for a family vacation, you can really go for it. There is good lawn maintained inside and the view of the beach is very nice. We opted for the room, which has beach view. In the evening or the early morning, you can view the beach from the window of your room. We liked the breakfast, and also the dinner we ordered. Staffs are friendly. You can see a small duck farm there, kids will love to see those. You can also the beach cradle there. We did not use the swimming pool, but we saw some kids enjoying there. Overall, it was a good vacation for us. Can really go for this resort. Worth it.!

Sat G



Food item and swimming pool is not great and rooms are okay

Shankar S.



Good resort… Take the sea facing rooms if available

Chirag R.



Great location. Reasonable price. Average service. Average food. Good place to go with a gang of guys for a weekend hangout. I would not recommended it for a family vacation.

Anuj S.



Nice peaceful place. With beach. Food is not their forte. But cottages are good.

Vivek S.



Small resort with very bad food and non cooperative staff… Go there only if u have no other option

Sean H.



Staff and Service: Zero service what so ever. Room service didnt pick up the phone, no bartender at the bar, no staff at the pool and no life guard at the beach (which it says there should be on their site). Rooms: The rooms where acceptable, clean with working A/C and fan. Cleanliness: There was tons of garbage and trash lying all over the front lawn, and alot of construction work going on. Food: Only had breakfast here, but it was ok. All in all far from what I expected in that price range. Try somewhere else, this is not worth a try.

Swaminathan M.



Don't go to this hotel. I had read the reviews here naf thought of giving it a shot. Wrong decision! Staff response is really horrible. I had requested a cab to be booked and was informed that it will cost me 1000 bucks for 3 hours and 30 kms. After half an hour when we were about to start I was told that the driver is going is 10-12 km away and that distance will also be included in 30 km. When we protested we were told to book a can if we can. Horrible service, pathetic location (really outskirts) and worst customer service. An amazing experience indeed x (.

Shiva S.



Place is good but the response of staff is nil and had a bad experience mainly food and liquor serving staff hesitating to serve, and out most worried for the tips, the person in the bar and incharge of food is directing us to have food and drink out side the hotel for less price. "0" rating.

Shanmuga S.



I was there for two days. Staff were very friendly and highly receptive. Services were really good. Good location, and very good view from hotel. I've stayed in the hotel room for few hours and in luxury cottage for two days. Both were good choice. Food was ok and the Restaurant and Bar staff were ready for any type of food and drink. In total relaxing, pleasurable, and enjoyable. Good luck.

Jaimin P.



Very nice place to enjoy the life.

Raja S.
