Visited Kovalam and stayed at this hotel for 3 nights at their supposedly best room called 'pearl sea view with terrace'... On entering the room, realized that the room is not used much... No TV, bathroom in dirty conditions, junkyard right in front of the room... This after paying pretty steep amount per night ! The adjacent room in the same category looked in better shape relatively and was being vacated ... Called the manager to check if we could shift there... The manager told we were originally booked in that room but was given the other room as we wanted to check in a bit early... He promised that we will be shifted to that room as soon as the room is cleaned up.... After an hour later i realized that a Russian family has moved in... On checking again he said sorry that family will stay longer and hence given that room.. He then offered me another room which is cheaper and doesn't have any terrace etc.. Well, do i call it cheating and being unethical on their part? Absolutely.... Well, what did i know... That was just the beginning of our bad experiences in that hotel... Service was extremely poor... Food was bad too.... The only good thing about the hotel is its location... However, there are many other hotels in that lighthouse beach stretch... As every bit of experience in that hotel was mood spoiling, we pretty much spent as much of time on the beach or in other restaurants around that place as we could... So much for booking the best room with sea view and terrace to have a relaxing holiday experience... My recommendation: this hotel is absolutely avoidable. There are many other options and based on my feedback from other guests those seemed far better.
