the Hotel is located one part on top of the cliffs and one part, connected with an Elevator, on the bottom of the cliffs. I stayed here for a round trip for two nights in the bottom rooms. the beach is not very clean, since there are fishermen using it in the morning, but the pool is very nice instead,... More

We stayed here for 2 nights to start our trip in India. Very close to sandy beach. Two pools. Nice rooms and villas. Buffet dinner and lunch was very good. Our doughter used the spa and was very satisfied.

I had visited the hotel on 30th December, 2013. The total staff consisted of 2-3 persons only. The room was not cleaned well. Intercom was not working, I needed to ask for everything (towels, soap, water). No food was available, They argued that unless significant occupants are there in the hotel, they won't prepare anything.

I had visited the hotel on 22nd & 23rd February 2013. The hotel was recommended by "YATRA.COM". I was informed by "YATRA.COM" that your hotel has 3 star deluxe facility. However I was disappointed because your hotel was like a lodge at Kalbadevi (Mumbai) or Chandni Chowk (Delhi). The total staff consisted of 2 persons only. I was given a... More

I stayed here on 22-23rd November 2012. The Location is great, a 5 mins walk brings you to Kovalam beach & under light house. My room on 2nd floor is too spacious with 3 sections and big balcony with a view of kovalam beach. Just enjoy the sunset. Kovalam has frequent power cuts but the power back up is there... More

This hotel is around 1 km from beach next to sagara resort. I stayed here October 31. Hotel is average. Rooms are spacious. They have a small dining area near to swimming pool which they call as restaurant. Rooms, and room service are good. Its worth for amount paid.

What would have been a very good finale to my trip to Kerala.........turned out disappointing. Apart from a swimming pool this hotel is very disappointing. The first thing you notice is no lifts, and staff looks more like that of a family and friends run place rather than professionally managed place. No proper receptionist. I had booked for two days.... More
