Deliberately chose to stay at this hotel in sea view cottage. Booked for 3 nights through a reputable Indian travel agent. Took us to a sub-standard hotel room of 2 star quality near reception with view of sea horizon and tops of palm trees. We checked our itinerary to find they had put us in the wrong room. We complained... More

We travelled in August. Soma Palmshore located right next to lighthouse beach and is in a secluded cove. Rooms were perfect (Sea facing AC deluxe). Entrance to the beach from the resort has been closed due to rough weather.
