Good, but probably not worth the money. Close to the beach, but not really near the places you'll likely want to see in Pondicherry. Beach closes by sunset, at least according to the signage. Pool has limited hours yet noisy private events were being held even later into the night outside.

My debit card was left in a room when we changed room and staff did not report that a card was found. Looks like a lot of students are working... More

Le Pondy is one of the best beach resorts in Pondicherry with a lovely private beach, nice sea view rooms and good service. Loved the morning run on the clean beach and also the estuary point where the tributary and the ocean converge. Rooms were very spacious and service was pretty decent. Food was average, nothing to complain about ,... More
