“Very spacious and relaxed hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2009

Our stay was very pleasant and the rooms given to us was very spacious and good for us as we a had kid who always wants to play. Very close to the beach and we got a fantastic package from them including a drive to Kanya kumari. Lovely place and a lovely hotel.

when i started searching for the Hotels in Kovalam, i set few priorities first was the proximity to the beach , second was standard of hotel, third was view from the hotel , fourth was budget.
I am happy to say that i got all those i wanted there.

beach is just 2 mins walk from the hotel , Hotel rooms were good and people were very hospitable , and room i choose was Sagara palace room , but fortunately i got sea facing room and one of the best rooms in the hotel. it was well within my budget.

We could see the kovalam beach from my room , and also the hotel leela.
Food was just ok.

Would not recommend this place for the value it offers compared to price. Most of the reviews i have read seem to say nice about the place, but there is a confusion between sagara palace and sagara beach resort, same properties...front side and backside. We had booked a deluxe room....thru a travel agent. We were put in 308 ...not to say any reflection of deluxe Ac room...the room did not have the look or feel of a deluxe room.A horrible stench the moment u step put of the room (of the gate of the electric room ) Phone was not working...noone did anything inspite of complaining...the shower was not working ....toilet hose was not working.. the table in the room resembled street side table..to top it all covered with old curtain cloth...horrible...The dinner was bad ...we had ordered veg korma sabzi along with chicken..the veg korma was one of the most awful ones i have tasted till date with watery gravy....breakfast was bad... asked for an extra piece of bread and nobody returned till 15 mnutes...finally we walked out..the restaurant staff are as if they are doing a favour to you.....retsurant looks lke nay street side setup...worst is the manager or whoever sitting on the last table in the restaurant...as if keeping his eyes over what u are eating...very uncomfortable...so much of construction going on...bricks falling in the pool...not at all soothing to stay there...looks like run of the mill..though the room is clean and spacious but overall very bad impact for the money they charge u. wll not recommend. Though they say 1 min to the beach, it opens on the exteme side of beach near the lighthouse where the beach is completely dirty and unusable. u need to walk good 10-15 min to come to the usable side of the beach...bad experience

I Stay in this hotelin first week of march 2009 with my Wife. I like this place very much. Rooms were quite big, Clean, decent and calm and staff was very polite. I like rooms very much. Swimming pool was also very nice. But its better to have food outside as I did't like the food here. I would recomend this to every one visiting Kovalam.

The hotel has an excellent with a view of the beach and innumerable coconut trees whichever direction you might look...
Food and staff service is also exccellent. Rooms are clean and the beach is at a 2 minute walking distance from the hotel

The hotel also offers Kerala body massages which are worth the money and truly rejuvenating!!
