Had emailed owner two weeks before with questions, sent reminder - NO replies ! How rude can you be?. Went to another hotel locally where we were made so welcome. Needless... More

Our room was large with great air con plus a ceiling fan and a lovely balcony overlooking the pool. It also had a fridge, which was stocked daily with bottled... More

Great rooms with private balconies, air conditioned, huge bathroom, breakfast included. Heather and Dharma are fantastic hosts and did I mention the restaurant. Kovalam is wall to wall restaurants but we didn't bother to go anywhere else the food was... More

Just got back from another fantastic three weeks. Would whole heartedly agree with what DoverSunseeker have commented. Pool has now been sorted with a new pump water very clear. Staff as usual nothing too much trouble, same with Dharma and Heather all of whom make you feel part of the family. Again the rooms are brilliant, spacious and clean. Hot... More
