The most convenient part of this hotel was its vicinity to the beach. The Arabian sea view room had a great view and one can clearly listen to the sound of the waves. The hotel also provides a drop facility to the beach till 6 pm. The hotel staff was very friendly. Initially we had some issues with the housekeeping... More

Firstly I would like to say I did enjoy my time at the hotel however, I had stayed at many hotels across Kerala and India. After seeing the images and reviews I was expecting this hotel to be as amazing as the others I had stayed in but it wasn't as good in all honesty. The service seemed to be... More

Staff very polite efficient. Rooms are decent. My only complaint is that there were two couples from North India who played loud Punjabi music at the public pool ie hotel pool no consideration for the other guests. When I complained to the hotel staff they did nothing about it. Most of the people by the pool left.
