I had a lot of expectations from the property but was quite disappointed. We took one of the standard rooms and it was musty and smelly. The private beach was the only plus. The staff was courteous and helpful though.

I stayed in the cottages directly overlooking the beach. Very relaxing, clean and friendly. Great for a stroll on the beach or a wonderful fish curry in the Restaurant overlooking the Indian Ocean. Nice pool and Patio area surrounded by beautiful gardens. Ask for room with Ocean view or a cottage.

I recently spent 6 nights at Fisherman's cove while attending a conference in Mahabalipuram at another resort. By the end of the stay, I regretted leaving.

The resort is nicely spread out on beautifully maintained grounds in a...

This is a large resort hotel with good facilities. They have nice bars and restaurants overlooking the sea and nice grounds to stroll about in. The room was great and quiet - with the most complicated lighting set up I have ever seen! Breakfast was good. It is some way out of town.

Initially we stayed in one of the newer buildings but luckily we were able to get one of the seaside cottages and it was lovely. Nicely designed, spacious, a big comfortable bed and a bathroom that was open to the sky but with lots of privacy. They had a beautiful antique swing right outside the cottage not mention a hammock....

Fishermans cove is a five star luxury resort in Covelong beach. The resort has beautiful grounds and spacious rooms of different categories.

Loved the hotel, interior and everyone who worked at the hotel was so nice. Customer service was excellent and so was the food. The staff are very helpful. Loved every bit of it! The location is away from the city, right next to the beach. Very RELAXING!
