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

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.

Simple and budget friendly. Direct access to the beach.. amazing sea food. good service.. & clean rooms. What else do you need in a budget friendly beach hotel!!! Housekeeping is a bit of a drag, when it comes to cleaning your room when you are out. Take a table beside the pool facing the beach and enjoy the delicious food.

Basic guest house, clean, considerate service, great food. Hot water will be turned on on request. We were there 2013-2014 for new year's. They put up a sweet show, and an amazing sea food bar-b-q buffet. The hotel is right on the beach. The beach is a super crowded, public beach, but beautiful. The staff is very cool, helpful, kind...

Hotel is in great location, easy walk to beach and all restaurants. Breakfast was OK but service was slow. Didn't eat any other meals here as so many restaurants to choose from. Reception staff very good. Room average, gloomy , we were on the ground floor overlooking the pool so had to keep curtains closed when needed privacy. Bathroom needs... More

Stayed here for four nights and it was fine. Wound up eating most of our meals (including breakfast, which was included with our room) at other restaurants on Lighthouse Beach. Never did eat dinner here, so can't speak to that. The room was average (we were in one of the rooms on the side, which was fine - still had... More

Super! I would be on the hit-list of all the regulars by saying this - the hotel should charge at-least 25% more than what it does now. I walked along the entire line of accommodations in the line (along the beach) - and nothing matches this - yeah, some might be better in infrastructure, some in service, some in food,... More

We stayed in Sea Face in two nights in suite room from 24 to 26 Dec. The hotel has best location in Hawa Beach. They possibly has largest property in Hawa Beach. They have excellent location of restaurant also. Though rooms are clean but a peculiar smell is present in the rooms. Room service is very poor it takes at... More
