Very poorly maintained property. Rooms are very old and does not give the feel of luxury or semi luxury, all items in the property are now dated and looks rusted and uncleaned. Service in restaurant is average along with the spread of food options. Best part is the property area and proximity to beach and nature. Feeling was not of Taj group at all and people responsiveness was poor. Example- The breakfast restaurant opened at 7:15 and food was ready by 7:30 when the opening time is 7:00 am.

Excellent Property. One of the best in Chennai. Food at Seagull was amazing. Brisk walks around the property are the stuff dreams are made of. The poolside sunburst bar is fantastic. would love to visit again. The buffet spread at Seagull is ace.

Nice experience to had one night there in Taj Fishermans cove Chennai, thank for the reception staff to upgrade our room, we really enjoy the big room with a very nice tub, after a week of busy working schedule, it really helped us to be relax, and slow down out pace to enjoy our family time. The campus is very big, and I believe all the facilities would be nice. This time we were in a hurry had no time to take look to those facilities, but still recommend them to all who love to enjoy their holidays.

Overall cool place to unwind oneself and indulge in total relaxation of body and mind. Taj Covelong is amazingly huge with nature at its best. Enjoy with family and friends and even a solo trip would be fine. It is also so near chennai that commuting becomes so easy.

The rooms was very comfortable . Specially if you are taking a sea view room, 211 is preffered. It has perfect view of swimming pool and Sea. The checkin and checkout experience was very good. Staff are very courteous. My children enjoyed the swimming pool very much. The pool was well maintained and staff helped us very much. We also flew kites in the evening. Over all memorable experience. Only point for improvement is improving the buffet food quality. Same food if it prepared in alacarte it is perfect but in buffet the food is lacking spice and salt or overspiced.

The location of the hotel is simply marvellous. The staff is well behaved and supportive. The facilities are unmatched. The food was excellent. The chef Mr. Tapan is a genius. The rooms were clean and hygienic. The pillows were actually the fluffiest I have ever felt.
