We had an occasion to stay at Hotel Seaface, Kovalam, Kerala, India on our annual vacation trip to our native town of Trivandrum. This is the only decent hotel with rooms facing the sea at Kovalam beach. The food is excellent and we frolicked on avoli fish curry, karimeen fry and chilly chicken which are typical Kerala delicacies. Vegetarian dishes... More

A very well located hotel, right on the Junction of Hawa and Lighthouse beach. Rooms offer a very good view. Nice and clean swimming pool. Very polite staff, good restaurant. Evenings can be spent sitting near the pool watching the beautiful sunset in the backdrop of the sea. Later on watch the waves touch the fine sands of the Hawa... More

When we checked out they wanted to charge us more money for they stay. They told us the tariff had been changed!!! Terrible treatment. We already paid... More

It's a old property. Located within 10-20 meters of the sea beach. Location is good. But due to proximity of the sea, hotel room walls are quite damaged for sea salt. Tariff is high in comparison with other same category hotel. Otherwise cleanliness, service & other facilities no issue.

We arrived for the fifth time in three years to Kovalum late in the evening flight from Bangalore. Airport was quick and easy. Taxi was friendly. Checkin at the Sea Face was efficient. Then we went to turn on the ACs in our two rooms. They didn't work, spent over 1hr on the phone. The hotel clerk asked for more... More

We had 4 nights in Kovalam. We booked another hotel on line but when we arrived and stayed one night we were disappointed. So walked down the beach front boulevard and found Sea Face hotel. What a lovely hotel. Right on the beach. Our room was on the ground floor 5 metres from the lovely pool which really suited us... More

Great location & pool; however this place desperately needs updating. The bedding was clean but everything else was grimy. Food was good but expensive for the location. Would not return. Price does not reflect the accommodation on offer.
