Though close to beach but facilities are in terrible shape. No water in bathrooms, toilets in bad shape, no ventilation in rooms which make them super hot and humid. Staff not helpful. Not deserving of the price that you are about to pay.

The location is just 2 min walk from main beach of kovalam & 2 min to restaurents. However the quality of rooms and the oveall structure of the hotel is not good. The bed and beddings are also not very good, stairs and other areas are poorly maintained. parking space is there .

Right on the edge of the beach, I found the place an excellent accommodation. Lucky for me, I got one of the front-facing rooms which had a balcony, and what a balcony it was! Its unfortunate that the hotel does not afford a view of the sea because of the building/s in front of it, otherwise it would have been... More

Stayed here for a few days in a non A/C room for 800R. Room was clean and spacious and we had a view of palm trees & the sea in the distance from the balcony. Stairs and passageways are in need of a good clean but room wand beds were very clean. There is a short walk down the steep... More
