Room amenities fills the minimum demands with simple and bygone furnisihing. Thin doors doesn't give help for privacy. For people with any disabilities this is not recommended, there are a lot of stairs and specially the way to the beach has no safety amenities. Service in the restaurant was most friendly but I dont understand conservative rules for instance of... More

Kovalam 2014 After leaving the noise and traffic of Ernakulum behind, we were hoping to be able to relax in a more tourist friendly resort for the remaining part of our holiday. The flight from Kochin is quick and we picked up a per-paid taxi at the airport for 5 rupees. Driving out through Trivandrum I got a better vibe,... More

Very belated review as we actually stayed here in February 2013. We found this hotel after a lot of hunting around and didn't really know what to expect as we had to settle on what looked best for our budget, but we were very pleasantly surprised. I'd say the key selling point of this hotel is the location. It's only... More

this was our fourth visit to Kovalam and we hesitated between Palmshore and Sagara Beach, having stayed at both before. Palmshore wins out because of the beautiful garden and sea views, private swimming pool and access to a quieter beach. ( you have to pay for sunbeds and parasols on the beach but these are vastly overpriced compared with the... More

Hotel is in good location with sea view and private access to pleasant beach. Our room, de luxe sea view cottage, was the last in a row of rooms, a little bit of imagination could provide much more privacy. The room was large but dark with poor lighting, natural and electric. The hotel needs some modernisation, it all looks a... More
