hotel is situated right by the beach. Could do with updating, but is kept very clean.. From the balcony by the swimming pool you can enjoy watching activities on the sea front. Watching the fishermen laying out their nets in the sea, then. Watching them haul in the nets.

High price but very good location. We had room 107 which has a sea-view - but the view was somewhat obstructed by the approach-way to restaurant. The room is spacious and has a big attached balcony. Polite & helpful stuff. Service could be faster. Very tasty food at the restaurant.

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
