The staff are really friendly and fun people to be around, they were all very welcoming. The rooms are very nice and there are some very beautiful rooms out the front that have a great view of the beach. Ajith has made my stay very enjoyable. Wish I could've stayed a few more nights.

We stayed here as part of a tour for 2 nights. We stayed in one of the cabanas. The room was clean, had a/c and working plumbing! The location of this hotel is amazing. It is on a cliff looking out over the ocean. There are beaches to swim at a shot walk in either direction. There are also lots... More

Although our train was delayed by an hour and arrived after midnight we were met at the station by the very friendly Vava. The location is sea facing and is a great spot for sundowners! All the staff were very friendly and helpful. It is at the quieter end of the north beach. The fans worked well.

We stayed in this resort in early october 2015. When we reached the resort we were escorted to our heritage sea view villa. The rooms are spacious but lacked basic amenities like TV, drinking water. There was no water in the bathroom as well and we had to ask the guy at the front desk to turn on the bathroom... More

I stayed here for 2 nights. While it is in a nice location kind of close to the beach, it is not a beach you can swim at. The facilities were very basic, there was no hot water while we were there. The rooms are air conditioned but the remotes either wouldn't work or you could turn it on but... More

We stayed at this hotel for two nights and it was the most basic accommodation we had ever come across, toilet paper was not even provided. They were also in the process of renovating so we had loud sanding noises and varnish spraying directly outside our room. The restaurant that is on the same premises doesn't have a menu or... More

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...
