The pool is really refreshing at this time of year. They do allow people not staying at the hotel to use it, but for the most part we had it to ourselves.
The rooms are dated but clean-ish & breakfast was nice and plentiful.
Staff are really accommodating and they can get you a beer if you want one.
Mahab's itself is OK, the beach is disgustingly dirty & the sites you pay for are not worth it for foreigners, (500 times more expensive than local people) you can take photos without entering & the free ones are better anyway. In my opinion there's really not any reason to stay overnight in this town, you could stop off and see the sights on the way to Pondy or Chennai. We were here out of season so it might be better if there were tourists around, but on the whole I found the whole town dirty & expensive.
