Fisherman's Cove is a nice beach hotel, not too far from Chennai. Used it mainly as a base to visit Mahabalipuram and Kanchipuram Temples (which are real gems). Good swimming pool and beautiful gardens. Friendly staff. Stayed in a quite comfortable sew view room. The hotel also has bungalows, probably for families with kids. Tried both restaurants - very good...

I love this hotel -- everything about it is nice. Except for the fact that it is an old property and can do with some renovation. This beach is windy and a great place for strolls or to sit on their shacks and have a drink or a meal at. Their restaurants have good food. you can sit out on...

The rooms need serious upgradation. no toilet showers, no charging capability in washrooms, dirty windows which make the amazing view pointless. Overall a very bad experience. the food was amazing and the property was well maintained. The only problem is that the room is not at all worth the price that we pay.

We were a group of 10 people. Had some fun time relaxing. The best part is the location of the place. It's quite off the main city and is very calm, especially the private beach. The rooms are no doubt the best as it is Taj.

Fabulous location, friendly staff, sumptuous breakfast buffet. But what is the point when the bathroom smells constantly and is dirty. After complaining multiple times, there was absolutely no response. At the very least the bathroom should have been fixed or our villa should have been changed. The facilities appear dated and are in urgent need of a renovation. The kids...

Excellent stay overall. Enjoyed the beach and swimming pool and amenities overall. Not much by way of shopping or eating outside the property nearby. Good clean beach with deep sand and quality of water. Access to beach also good short walk fro swimming pool.
