“Good budget hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

Probably a plush hotel by local standards but it has seen better days. Being open to the elements, public areas were very slippery as it was approaching monsoon season. There was a lot of condensation on the floor of the room as huge gaps were evident around the door leading to the outside balcony. Caution with the gaps between the glass panes on the balcony if you have toddlers. Older kids need watching as chairs on the balcony are easy access to climb on and reach the top of the guard railings. The pool was freezing cold although it was off season. The restaurant was of a very good standard for food quality although the buffet breakfast was a little disappointing with Western variety. The restaurant floor was dangerous with some sort of silicone covering the steps and dining area. Banging doors to treacherous shafts were a night nuisance and a great danger to kids should they investigate further. These doors are on every landing and need locking as the shafts run from the top floor to the bottom as pipes are located inside. An accident waiting to happen.

Room Tip: Top floor rooms to watch soaring Kites (birds) and Eagles

Stayed for one night with my family in the suite room
Room was very spacious with excellent panoramic view of the beach and horizon
The room had a sit out where you can enjoy the sea breeze

The food was also great with all fresh fish items for a very reasonable prize
The buffet spread was average, may be because of the off season time I visited and less number of guest at that time

Had two good swimming pools which was in the shade so we could swim till almost noon
The staff were friendly and very helpful
Parking space is adequate and safe
Wifi available only in the lobby
There is some erosion to the wooden doors because of the salty wind

The light house beach and marine aquarium are at walkable distance from the hotel

To sum up a very enjoyable destination

I went during my honeymoon. Hotel is OK. Staff is good. It is very near to beach. One should select the location of room that will be good because the rooms at the basement are not that ideal for a couple.

i was very impressed with this hotel where i stayed in kovalam. beautiful view, beautiful setting and the hotel itself tells the rest of my compliments. their service is excellent and they are even willing to prepare breakfast for us because we have to leave as early as 4 am. it is indeed a remarkable stay in sagara... a place i will want to come back.

Room Tip: all the rooms are spacious and beautiful...
