The Booking Dot Com web site showed a beautiful room with a ocean view but I got was a room with a view of a dumpster and dumping ground. Be careful when you book because many rooms do not have air conditioning. Poor room maintenance. The 19 inch TV did not work, the fan had no speed control, and the... More

Looking back at all the beach resort stays I've had in my life, Hotel Neelakanta was the most memorable and the most enjoyable one so far, because of reasons, more than many. The fact that the hotel was bang on the beach, was a very new experience to me. The rooms and the service they offered was very heart-warming. Nothing... More

We stayed here in January 2015. The hotel is right on the beach, takes about 25 seconds from the hotel exit to the ocean. We booked a room on-sight, we picked an AC-room with no-sew view (great value for money!). It was never hot in the room, thanks to the AC and no sun, which was great after hot days... More

The staff was helpful, friendly, always available if anything was needed. I tried several of the restaurants in Kovalum and kept coming back to... More

I had booked 2 rooms with Balcony. They gave one with AC and one with non AC. Non AC one doesn't even has fan and no TV (if kids need) The room facilities were sub standard on the ground floor. I took ground floor since the hotel doesn't have lift. Ground floor room are terrible. If you have a elderly... More

I have contrasting reviews for this place.the resort is at a Very good location. We had sea facing room with a broad balcony which gave us the best view of the location. The beach is hardly 20mts away so you can jump into the sea anytime. The room is very spacious, but the bathroom is little damp.you would not feel... More

We didn't make prior reservations and after looking at our room we booked an AC room for 2 nights at a reasonable price. We loved the location of this hotel and the views from the rooms were amazing. There is a pool and restaurant with good views. We felt AC is a must here because even on a November night... More

We went to the Hotel as two families, and booked two rooms one AC and Non Ac. Since it was Off season the rates coated was 2300 for Non Ac and 2800 for AC, but after negotiating it came down to 1900 & 2000 respectively with complimentary Breakfast. Both the rooms have great view of Sea. Since there is some... More
