My wife and I recently spend a night in Fisherman's Cove, a Taj property between Chennai and Mahabalipuram. The hotel is right on the sea and has great views and ambience, its own beach and pool.

For the price we pay, its not enough. Rooms are just ok. The bed was small for two. Pool was also surprisingly small. Food was ok. Nothing special though. Checkout takes at least half an hour. So prepare yourself accordingly.

One of the best hotel properties in India, Typical TAJ group signature all over.A roaring sea, clean sea beach, coconut trees, excellent food, what else one can expect while relaxing during weekend ? Rooms are well kept and very comfortable. One can possibly spend the whole day sitting on deck chair. The property looks magical at night. The Sea Food...

We had gone for a quiet relaxing weekend at Fisherman's cove. We had booked a villa. It was awesome. From the villa we could walk to the beach - kids had a good time. Breakfast buffet was great.

We stayed here for two nights in a villa - a detached building with a large bathroom, a good sized bedroom / sitting area plus a private garden area with a hammock and seating and direct access onto the beach and sea views. The outdoor furniture cushions were unfortunately stained and dirty looking and the beach was littered with detritus...

It was an extremely delightful holiday on a beach facing property. The room on the main building was sea facing and had all modern amenities. The staff was very helpful and catered to all our taste and needs. A visit to Jiva spa is much do activity along with long strolls on the beach.

We got thrown by the "by Taj" in the name. While it maybe under the umbrella of the Taj group, it is not 100% a Taj, in my book. I called the hotel directly to ask for a cottage room, I thought it was booked but come to find out they put us in the modern deluxe room wing -...
