We liked the small intimate setting ov Mollys. No need to scramble for a sunlounger, With only 8 rooms and 16 loungers, enough for all. The pool was in lovely setting surrounded by coconut palms, flowers and greenery. Sometimes we found quite a lot of flies in it though. It was handy having a restaurant, the food wasgood and reasonably... More

Just over 2 weeks at Molly's - really lovely hotel. There are 8 identical rooms with pool, a/c, fan, huge bathrooms and lots of storage, also your own verandah with fan, good for keeping an eye on what's going on if you're on the first floor; also 2 cottages at the rear, pretty private. Wifi is free and worked in... More

Just returned from another great 3 week holiday and made perfect by staying at Mollys. Have returned here on many occassions and the best hotel in Kovalam. Have previously stayed in four others but nothing compares to this one. Heather and Dharma along with their staff as usual make you feel most welcome. Nothing is too much trouble. No problems...

Just returned from another wonderful stay at Mollys. Peaceful and relaxing with a very helpful staff team. The owners Heather and Dhama go out of their way to ensure all needs are met. Days relaxing by the lovely pool or very short walk to the beach. Can't wait to return later in the year.

Just spent three days at Molly's and was sorry we didn't book longer. All the staff are really friendly and helpful. Relaxed atmosphere and easy service. You can have your breakfast at 2PM if you want. Lovely pool, luxury rooms and laidback ambience. Short walk or rickshaw to livelier areas. Can't recommend this one enough.

Returned for the 7th year this time with family and as always was not disappointed. Our family was made to feel more than welcome by Heather and Dharma and nothing was to much trouble for them. Rooms always immaculate and the pool crystal clear which was very welcome after a trip out. Met up with repeat guests who we had... More
