Firstly the less liked: 1. The room was "sort of" clean and the cleaner should be checked occasionally to vet the level of service. 2. Maintenance is not too good... but remember, you are in India!! 3. Alcohol is not available. This does not imply that we wanted to get legless, but rather to have a sundowner on the great...

Great place. Good food. Good value. The perfect location, since the hotel is situated on the cliffs above a beautiful beach with only two hotels - away from the board walk and the long stretch of restaurants. It's basic, but highly recommended.

Rockholm The Rockholm Hotel was by far the best hotel experience I had during my five weeks in Kerala! My stay started the night before new years eve 2012. As a girl traveling alone I was concerned whether my taxi driver would really be waiting for me at the airport at 4:30am, yet there he was, Kumar, holding up a...

This hotel is actually in Kovalam and not in Trivandrum. It is conveniently located up a hill just a few minutes from the main lighthouse beach and itself has a stunning location next to crashing waves. Unfortunately that is where my positive comments finish. We travelled with friends and as we were unsure of what the accommodation was going to...

We stayed at Rockholm in December 2011 and truly enjoyed our stay. We were not at all impressed with Kovalam Beach, but Rockholm has its own beach (shared with a neighbouring hotel only) we made our stay very good. Sunbeds and umbrellas could be rented on the beach, although quite expensive for being in India. Beach was clean and quiet....

This hotel is a funky place situation just behind and slight south (100m) from the lighthouse. It's tucked in nicely away from the main beach but less than a 5 minute walk to get there. The staff is very nice and the rooms were very clean. This place looks like it's out of the 80s with a dash of south...

My wife and I stayed in this hotel for a night on Nov 29, 2009.. It was a double bed, sea-facing, non A/C room... the location of this hotel is simply superb.. Except the roaring waves, you cannot hear any other unnecessary noise.. this is probably located 0.25 kms away from the mainstream Kovalam Light house beach, but that distance...

A true get-away. The rooms have incredible views. You're so close to the beach that the waves of the sea sound thunderous at times! It's further away from the thick tourist beaches down the hill. Rooms are simple but spacious and perfect for coming and going down to the rocks and sand. Food is just OK but with so many...

- Brilliantly located just by the beach, very close to Kovalam beach promenade. - Our room was quite large, with a small balcony with two chairs and a table, where could sit an enjoy a beer at night. - Hotel staff is very friendly. - The hotel shares a private beach with another hotel. The beach was not crowded at...
