Stayed here in Mid April, with couple of kids. Overall this is a a good property, which would have been really good under a better owner / management. The positives include the great location and excellent landscaped area leading up to the beach. Pool is also good. Most rooms have sea view, the new building would be more quite and... More

Excellent location. You can see the sea & beach from your rooms. Swimming pool and garden well maintained. But the food quality is poor. Recently we have stayed in 3 KTDC hotels, Tea County in Munnar, Aranya Nivas in Thekkady and this one. Reagarding quality of food, this one is no.3. The dinner was 550k per person in buffet. We...

The hotel provides excellent value for money and facilities. It was a very satisfying experience. Pros: > 2 min walk from Samudra beach, you visit Kerala for the sea and it is right at your doorstep in Samudra. The beach is excellent, clean, not very crowded, has boat rides, basic shops and loads of fun. > The rooms, service, and... More

This is one of the best resorts I have visited.Its a real value for money resort.This property has an excellent private beach(but sometimes encroached by others :), as you expect from KTDC ) The only negative I can say is that the food choices are very very limited, especially for the breakfast and dinner buffet.For breakfast and dinner, Ala-carte is...

This hotel has nearly everything and the negatives would not prevent me from returning. The positives, warm welcome, clean rooms, great location on the beach and nearby very good restaurants. The pool is nice but needs some updating pool side furniture. The standard of cleaning in the rooms was very good. The main negative was breakfast, it was chaos, on... More

Despite all negatives reviews about its location and services, this is one the best property I ever experienced. Rite on the Samudra beach, but you need strong legs to go down till beach and come back, you may experience the beach both near main gate below and the backyard gate. Beach is rocky and got strong currents. So you do... More
