The staff at this hotel are very friendly and always willing to help you and greet you with a smile. The rooms are big and have lovely balconies. The value is good and the location is a 2 minute walk to lighthouse beach. My only suggestion would be to put mosquito screens on the windows and doors.

What an amazing little hotel run by Charles and his team. We were lucky enough to have the penthouse apartment with wraparound views of the beaches either side of the Lighthouse. Spacious and well equipped wiith a cooker and fridge, it was great for making the odd light meal. As we were just minutes from Lighthouse Beach we could take... More

Very nice hotel, scrupulously clean with courteous and helpful staff. Aparna is situated just off the main strip, but close to the lighthouse. The rooms are large and airy, no AC however ample fans and sea breeze. I had a large balcony over looking the ocean on the third floor. The gentlemen at the front desk were extremely helpful in...

I was in Kovalam, South India, for an ayurvedic treatment. I was there in june and july 2013 and 2014. The rooms of Hotel Aparna are big and very clean. The staff is very friendly. They even watch the soccer worldcup with me at 2 o'clock in the morning. Every day the towels were changed and the room was cleaned.... More

The hotel is absolutely lovely, extremely clean and 3 min walk from the beach. The rooms are nice and the people working there try to look after you as much as possible. It's a great value for money! Absolutely the best choice!!

We returned for another stay at the Aparna. The accommodation and service are always excellent. Charles and his team maintain a very high standard and they are very pleasant and helpful. The rooms are the cleanest we have found anywhere in India and the location is perfect for access to the beach.

The location of this guest house cannot be beaten. The spacious shared balcony was lovely for relaxing with a book, and the short stroll down to the beach was very convenient. There are even tuk tuks waiting to ferry you back up the hill to the Aparna at the end of the day if your legs arent up to it!... More
