We stayed three nights in Kovalam, and had been planning on staying here all three nights, but opted out after one night after seeing that other hotels had much lower "low season" rates. We were able to get a hotel about 100 yards away with more amenities (TV and fridge) for one-fifth the price we were paying at this hotel.... More

Stayed 2 nights in March 2013. Clean and big rooms, where you can hear a waves coming from sea, very romantic. I would say the best hotel in Lighthouse beach. Friendly and helpful staff. The best of the hotel is location just few steps and you are in the sea!

Stayed here for 2 nights in march 2013. Stayed at The Beach Hotel, non-AC room. Large, clean rooms, right at the beach. First tried getting an AC room at the Beach Hotel II, but it was fully booked. The non-AC rooms at The Beach Hotel however were perfect. As it is situated directly at the beach you don't need the... More

We stayed for 4 nights at the end of our trip at Beach Hotel II. On the second floor above the Fusion cafe right near the Lighthouse on Lighthouse Beach, this is a great location to explore Kovalam and has great views of the beach. The rooms were big and tastefully decorated with nice showers and good air conditioning, as... More

The Oasis - Beach Hotel. It;s a cool place with great ayurveda and authentic kerala style architecture. It's right at the end of the beach overlooking the light house. The guy gave us a discount and we got a B & B room for INR 4000/ taxes included. The room was amazing....air conditioned, huge sprawling room and a wash room.... More

The stay at the beach hotel turned out to be awesome. There was no TV, Refrigerator or AC in the room but the room was an absolute classic. Spotlessly clean bathroom with great interiors. Room also is decorated pretty well. The lighting needs some improvement however for people may prefer some extra brightness in the room sometimes. The manager Ajil... More

Clean, simple, nicely decorated rooms, with spectacular service, and affordable rates - what more could you ask for? This hotel was perfect. Kovalam itself was very disappointing as a destination, but this hotel is a diamond in the rough.

I went to the hotel in Feb this year for a group meet. I enjoyed the stay there in the hotel and the wine and dine are awesome. The sight seeing in kerala is very good.

We stayed 4 nights at The Beach Hotel in Kovalam - their second, recently opened hotel (the 'older' no-AC hotel is in the same building as the German Bakery), at 4.000 INR incl. breakfast for a double room. Fair enough, we were easy to impress after a coackroach-infested housebout trip....but this hotel really is a gem: bedroom and bathroom are... More
