Yatra.com goofed up in my booking of another hotel in kovalam and offered me this hotel as an alternative. The reviews looked good and hence I accepted the alternative reservation ... what a big mistake I did. I arrived at this hotel and found that you have to walk for about 50 meters in a very narrow passage (< 1... More

I have stayed at Grandsea Hotel on three previous occasions and I have always enjoyed a good room and good service. I was promised Wifi everyday but it never arrived. I don't understood why this was a problem as the last time I was here they had wifi in the reception. You can't claim wifi when it is not there... More

didn't find this hotel good for family. This is far away from kovalam beach, there is no clear sea view. Hotel room was very small and cramp. AC was not working effectively. Wi-fi was not working. no food service, one has to go outside for lunch or dinner.

Very nice, quiet place to stay, with very friendly staff, Spacious room with the balcony with the sea view was a perfect start for our vacations. The breakfasts are standard for India (toasts, tea/coffee, juice, sometimes eggs).Very close to the beach (2 minutes walk to the Light House Beach). Several restaurants (non-veg) and shops are just nearby. Right in front... More

A nice hotel with friendly staff, which are always wanting to help and solve any problems. The rooms are tidy and clean. There is enough space to feel well and relax after the treatments. Rooms are available with ac and fan or only with fan. Perhaps there should be some safes in the room. The beds are comfortable and I... More

It is sure that I'm not going to India in a five star hotel. the price for this quality is justifiable.... More

We were worried till we reached the entrance and even when we saw the building from the outside, but we were not after we got the room and the balcony... More
