Restaurent is very pricy and not too many eating places outside. We have to go to the beach and then find some shacks or mediocre sea food restaurent where one can get some sea food. It would be nice to see a bar in the hotel and a sea food restaurent. There is no direct access to the beach which... More

Turtle Beach is a small hotel with large comfortable beds and bedrooms, lovely reception area, more than enough sun loungers frame a clean and well maintained pool. The restaurant is always cool and the food is of a consistently high... More

Stayed in Kovalam for 2 nights as part of our honeymoon package. It was disappointing overall. The staff should be taught some hospitality skills. Just not the kind of service you expect from a 5 star property. Food was terrible at the onsite restaurant. We ordered pasta with pesto sauce and it really was inedible. The snack place was alright... More
