We checked in as a family with 2 rooms. I must compliment the management the way they have managed to maintain the resort. It is right at the beach and is kind of private. Haven't seen locals encroaching. Almost all rooms open to the beach view. The food is expensive and often taseteless. I'll recommend eating some where else. The... More

I was slightly skeptical while booking this as this was my first ever booking for a government owned/ run resort, but, that thought never crossed my mind once we entered this place. The approach road was not that great but this property was nicely maintained. Beautiful location, awesome lawns, decent service (had food there, booked a cab as well). The... More

Booked the hotel from 5 to 7 as was attending a marriage in Leela. Found the hotel to be very nice and cosy, will not compare to the Leela's and taj but it stands out on its own. The rooms much seem a bit old but have all the facilities. The location is great and overlooks the same beach as... More

Agreed that the views are awesome and the property scores on location but when you are running a hotel, there is much more that one needs to do than reap benefits of what is nature's gift. Rooms - very average and does not justify the price charged. Overall property - good lawns, well maintained exteriors. Wish could say the same... More

I am utterly disappointed with the quality of service and the ambience that the Hotel claims to be known for. The quality of food is hopelessly bad and the explanation provided are unconvincing. The hotel rooms are more like a hostel and the treatment meted to the guests is cold and unresponsive.

Most of the rooms are sea view but needs a lot of maintenance. i also want to mention that food is below standard and nothing taste good. I am giving 3... More

Our last stay of 3 nights in our 14-days tour was at KTDC Hotel Samudra. Like Leela property, it is located opposite a sort of private beach but at extremely affordable prices. One always expects great locales at all government properties across India and believe me we have stayed in quite a few of them, but this was by far... More

I booked this hotel just from location perspective and considering service levels would be ok. But to my disappointment the service levels were PATHETIC and WAY BELOW MY EXPECTATIONS. Location: EXCELLENT... Just on the Kovalam beach (one of the best beaches in India if you like going in the water) .... Facing Leela hotel. We booked Deluxe Room. The view... More

The hotel on first impression is tired and could do with a bit of refurbishment here and there, mostly on the outside, however, the rooms were very nice, spacious and spotless. the grounds were immaculate and staff worked on them constantly. Food was good, buffet breakfast with eggs made to order. Staff were polite and very helpful. The hotel is... More
