Recent guest reviews

Fisherman’s cove hotel is situated right on the Bengal Bay. The Hotel offers many activities such as beach volleyball court,ping pong and swimming pool. Near the hotel you can try out surfing. The hotel itself is beautiful with very experienced service ready to fulfill all your needs.

If you are looking for a staycation, this would be the perfect hotel on the East Coast Road in chennai. Otherwise one can also visit the property for a morning breakfast buffet which is mouth watering.

Although it was a business trip but i enjoyed every moment of the stay there... The spa, pool, are all amazing.. a perfect getaway place, which will help you rejuvinate from the core. You have all facilities available and the deluxe rooms are amazing with awesome view and soul comforting amenities.

This time we stayed in the Garden view room of the Taj fish cove. Though this is one of the cheaper rooms in the property, the advantage is that this is the Newest addition there and hence the rooms are of Modern decor and impeccable. It is real value for money. The rooms have a lovely sit out facing the lawns and is a great place to relax. Only one issue is that there is no privacy in the sit outs and one can see the occupants of the next room if they sit in the sit outs. It will be nice if a partition is provided. I would definitely recommend this room for those who like Modern decor

Growing up in Chennai, I've always wanted to go to Fisherman's Cove. I was finally able to do so on my trip to Chennai in September. I have 2 young kids and so my #1 priority was to go to a beach resort with the best beach and room very close to the beach. I checked other resorts like Radissons Blu Temple Bay and ITC Kences. Fisherman's Cove easily has the best beach among all other resorts. The beach was clean and mostly is accessed by people staying at the resort. However, a couple of things could have been better. Since this is one of the oldest resorts, the architecture and the interiors of the rooms are a bit outdated. I stayed in one of those Temptation Villas by the beach. Loved the proximity to the beach but the room doesn't feel like a 5-star resort kind of room.Another thing that could be better was the food at the Seagull restaurant (the only restaurant with AC). We went to Seagull for Lunch and Breakfast. Breakfast was really good. Lunch, not so much. The food seemed to lack enough flavor. For dinner we went to the Bay View restaurant which is an open air restaurant. The food here was more on point. Tried some local Shrimp and Fish and loved it. Didn't get a chance to try out the Upper Deck restaurant. That said, the service of the staff is on point. They are very friendly and go out of the way to accomodate you. I'll definitely return someday to enjoy the beach.

I visited this resort with my family in last week of September'2017. The resort is very nice and beautiful. Gardens are very nicely appointed and maintained. Beach was wonderful and so was the pool. This was my second visit to this resort, and what I remember from last time and was expecting was wonderful food. I was not disappointed with the food. The upper deck really served mouth-watering dishes. There are a lot of facilities available for adults and kids. We enjoyed the ATV ride, Water Zorba, and the activities at the activity center. We stayed in Deluxe Room. The room was nice and comfortable, but I am afraid it was not maintained properly. The ceiling had black spots, a lot of dust in the corners and on the lamp. There was spider web around the mirror in the bathroom and the bathtub faucet was leaking. Housekeeping is one area we thought they can improve a lot. Evening turndown service was irregular. The daybed in the porch was completely dirty, and we also noticed dogs sitting on some of them in the night.

We went there as a family and stayed in the beach front villas. From the courteous staffs to the great food and not to mention the property itself, everything was excellent. It's a really nice beachfront property, well maintained and clean. Since they allow pets it was a double bonanza for us. Loved every second in the property.

This is a fantastic place for a family outing. On ECR, we have been there before a few times. The place remains beautiful as ever. Food is great and the place is well kept. Children can hang around and there are many activities available for them. A place where you can take your family or friends without a second thought.

We had a simple room overlooking the pool. The room and all the facilities were very nice and clean. Even the beach was well kept and cleaned daily. The pool was nice and relaxing. We came here for a weekend retreat from Chennai and had a relaxing time here. The only issues that we had were the windows in the room. They did not open and yet they did not seal properly shut either. In the evening, there was a spawning of insects and they were able to infiltrate our room. I must have killed 2 dozen of the critters. Other than that, the prices were quite high but one of the nicer places we have stayed in India.

Stayed here over the weekend with few family members. Been here before a couple of times and this place never disappoints. Outstanding service Staff are always available for your despite the fact that they were fully sold out during the long weekend. The resort was packed but still the staff ensured that each of the guest were attended to. Special mention about Aditi At the front office and Karan at the restaurant who was really helpful through out our stay. Looking forward to the next break.
