“Amazing experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2012

Amazing location of hotel. While laying on the bed all you can see is sea and sea. One more interesting fact is that probably this is the only hotel where you can see from sun rise to sun set all from the same sofa of your room.
Few things you should be aware of if you are staying here:
1) This hotel is mainly for business people. We didn't saw any tourist during our stay for 3 days. You might feel awkward when all people around you are working and you are the one who is here to take some leisure time out :)
2) The beach attached to this hotel is Kollam beach is just 200mts away from the hotel. But you won’t be able to take bath or play in the water as it’s very dangerous and deep with too much undercurrent. There are red flags all around and police patrolling to stop you. All you can do is wet your foot in water and that’s it.
3) This is a 5 Star hotel, but don’t expect a Taj like experience.
4) Spa is OK not that great. I had better Spa experience in Bangalore then here.
5) If you want to play in beach etc... There is a beach called Varkala Beach just 25 km away. Take a transport and you can go. It’s like paradise on earth.
Something really good:
1) Food. We took a package where food was included. You get both authenticate and western food with great desert.
2) Room service. Ask for anything and its super-fast delivered.
3) Clean. Everything is super clean including the bathroom which also has a bath tub in it.
4) Very eco-friendly hotel. You step out of room and all electricity is off.
5) People are really good. Especially the “guest manager” Mahesh and our driver from hotel Ajit. If you have not taken your vehicle you can ask for hotel transport. They will tell you the charge which I feel reasonable compared to Bangalore.
6) Nice swimming pool also but usually crowded till 10:30 am as kids from outside comes for some swimming session.

Room Tip: We took premium room. Only premium room has such views of ocean.

We stayed at The Quilon Beach Hotel & Convention Centre during our recent trip (February,2012) and it was amazing experience with very good food selections and very friendly staff all-round. The location was amazing with all the facilities within the hotel.We also liked the package which they put together for us. a special thanks to Mahesh, Aneesh and Thomas (not forgetting that all the staff were exceptionally very good).

We would most definitely visit again.

Room Tip: All rooms were with very good views.

As the name suggests it was a beautiful location with the blend of a long Beach and cool breezy air . Excellent food , Friendly staff , and a nice Restaurant facing the sea. feels like opening the door and entering the ocean for a dive . highly recommended for those who are planning to visit the town. all major shops and locations are within walking limits from the hotel. So if you want to have a feel of the town set your foot out , roam around and be back to the hotel in no time . The overall atmosphere is enough to make you feel comfortable . Next time when am in town this will be my pitstop .

thanks.

Room Tip: all rooms are nice but haven't checked out the suites. am guessing its even fantastic .

The morning receptionist was very good and co-operative. She helped us plan out the visit to near by places also well.
The boat ride on the open boat was good experience, but was too pricy. I expected a longer ride for the price.
The restorent opens into the swimming pool which is a good view for people eating, but is not encouraging to go and swim.

Room Tip: choose direct beach facing rooms.

Good location to spend a day or two.

The hotel staff was amazing. The best service I had in India. The rooms were beautiful. We went for the midrange room with a full wall view of the beach. Arrived late on New Year's eve after a terrible interaction at a different resort. The staff quickly took care of everything including getting me tickets to the New Year's Eve Party. This hotel with it's staff and professionalism in far above what you find in many areas outside the big city hotels in India.

The beach was popular with lots of activities for families. I was sad that I arrived when the roof top pool was not filled but the pool looking onto the beach was great.
Easily walk into town for great cheap Indian or eat at the cafe on site.

If I find myself back in Kollam, this is going to be my first choice.

Room Tip: If you want to go to this area, the price is not cheap but you get what you pay for. Go for the mid...
