This was our second visit to Kovalam and we chose to stay again at Jeevan resort as we had a great stay last time. The view from our room was simply amazing as we could sit in the balcony and watch sunrise and sunset. The breakfast spread was simple, but the food was very good. For dinner we ordered room...

I went to this resort after reading d reviews. The reviews say this place has excellent views of d beach bt not all rooms have a good view. Any other resort along the beach will also give views of d beach. The food is very expensive. A veg sandwich costs 200 rupees. The rooms are average and d towels stink.... More

The resort is located on the famous kovalam beach. its a nice small resort facing kovalam beach. The beach is just a step away from the resort. A la Carte from the restaurant is better than the buffet since they have a variety of seafood specialities available. More over the restaurant is facing the sea where you can have a... More

I spent three nights here that had been prepaid through Expedia, otherwise I probably would have moved to one of the many hotels along the strip. For what it is, it is a bit expensive. I had a seaview room and the view of the ocean is excellent. The wooden chairs on the deck, however, are very uncomfortable. The bed... More

We stayed with friends for a week. Probs: - Just on the beach - Well maintained swimming pool - Friendly Staff Negatives: - Uncomfortable bed materaces - Poor Wifi connection - Everyday same breakfast Generally, if you want to find quite cheap resort and you are not the ''complain'' type than this one is ok for you.

Just one plus point and that is the location, rest everything is worse. No room service, broken toilet seat, no water in toilets, electricity cut early morning while sleeping and had to search for the staff person to fix it as there was no one at reception. Overall, a very bad experience.
