“Worst worstiest.. baddest..”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

That's the new adjective is to be added after visiting this cheapest hotel. Air-conditioning system and phone was not working plus fan was running damn slow. Can't open the balcony door as it was closely connected to other hotels. manager of the hotel in peak season was off the desk from 8pm till 11am. No receptionist nothing. I thought only we had a problem but in next day morning few more people gathered at reception n we all found a young guy who was a waiter. why am I typing so much even it doesn't deserve one star after paying 5000rs. For Deluxe suite. I swear and take oath never to visit this hotel.

GO TO SAAGARA BEACH RESORT ONLY. WAY WAY BETTER RESORT.

Very very very bad rooms and awful toilet which is as good as a pay and use toilet. Its not a resort not even a budget hotel......there is only one boy who does all so zero service and for free breakfast u get only bread and butter or if u r very lucky u will get an omlet cooked in coconut oil. Its like a lodge in any temple city that costs around Rs400-500 not Rs3000.
It was horrible and we were waiting to end our holiday.

First of all this is not a resort. It is hotel near Beach. The rooms are not clean and the room which was allocated was full of ants and rooms are not cleaned regularly. There is no proper person in the reception to take care of our problem and no one will know who is the incharge. Eventhough they say complementary breakfast you have to call them often to get the breakfast (that too only bread and tea). No power backup or no hot water. The color of water which we need to use for our daily purpose is very horrible it will be in brownish color. Also according to me rooms are not very safe. People from other room can easily get into balcony of your room and baclony doors are only glass doors. If you are veg you will really have tough time here as the restaurant is japanese. Also they say free wifi which will accessible only if you are in ground floor near restaurant and not in rooms. The television set which is available in the rooms are total waste we get only 12 channels. Hotel does not even have lifts if you are allocated a room in third floor for any enquiry you need to climb down the steps because people does not answer properly through phone. Overall a very bad experience and had to advance my trip due to this.Wish to rate below 1 and star rating is negative. Advice is to avoid this hotel.

First a fall it is not a beach resort its a beach lodge.They dont have a restaurant,they say their is a japanese restaurant that they have which closes at8. Also as their website says that they have free wifi its wrong,television is a dabba set which has only 20 channels and without a cable connection so its just a blank blue screen.They dont have any breakfast buffet concept,which as per the website is complimentary,a night before they will be after you to tell them what you want for breakfast and suppose you dont tell them all that they can offfer is bread butter.Its the most horrible hotel in kovalam atleast donot consider it even if you dont have any other option.Its better to cancel the trip than to stay in this hotel.my overall rating is -100.the staff in the hotel is a boy who doesnt understand a word and he got drunk in the night when we came back and were trying to enquire something.we have spoilt a holiday royally by staying here if was our honeymoon,we got pyre in the website pictures and false claims made their.IT IS A LODGE AND NOT A RESORT

I am really impressed by the rooms and sea view restaurant , dnt take food in the room go to restaurant and have food and coofee and see the panoramic sea view , keep it up , really name suits .The pictures shown in the website are true, but since these photos have been taken, they are doing cleaning regularly.and also suits the ambience and temperature suits the body of mine and ayurveda pkgs such as , steam bath and sauna they arranged . The staffs are friendly and helpful .I got excellent Japanese cuisines from the restaurant .

Room Tip: Take normal ac rooms rhere and enjoy food at restauranut
