The hotel was chosen after doing lot of research in Trip Advisor. The location of the hotel is breathtaking, right on the Thiruvambadi beach. The view from sea facing villas is amazing one can sit or lounge in the beach area and read books or simply laze around and the service by the staffs of the resort were mind blowing.... More

Great place to stay and location is mind blowing. The restaurant serves the best authentic food and its a joy to be here. Will recommend people to visit this place and enjoy the sea just a throw away stone.

Economical place, nice room, excellent Location Great Food... Have stayed at many hotels over the years, often luxury ones with impeccable details and fantastic designs. Black Beach Resort is on par with these better-class hotels. But the comparison fails: It is not a luxury place. Yet, in ten years from now, I’m sure we will still fondly remember the vacation...

This is a place if you do not want much expectations from a beach side resort. It has old fashioned rooms with limited facilities except for 3 rooms along the cliff side. Could have done much better if a swimming pool was provided. The food is good and ambience can be done better. Wifi sucks. Can get more access to... More

Really loved here. On the cliffs with beautiful views over the sea. We saw dolphins from the cliffs one day. Has ac although ours was only average. WiFi only in public areas. No safe in the room although it felt secure. Bathroom totally drenched if you have a shower as so often happens here. Sounds like a lot of negatives... More

To tell the truth the pictures in their advertisement are waaaay better than the actual place (that seems to be the common thing in india) I am with a tour so we didn't get a say on the hotel but compared to other indian hotels this is actually really nice. Rooms are clean even though the sheets are stained with... More

Cottages are quite spacious (value for money), had ample space for the entire group to interact and enjoy after coming from the beach. It is right in front of the black beach thereby providing an amazing beach view. The only negative thing about the place is the quality of food, not worth it at all. Hope they will improve on...
