We have booked 7 nights. Hotel has overbooked the rooms and we didn't get the room what we had booked. The room wasn't clean and toilet/bathroom was terrible. Pictures didn't correspond to reality at all. We stayed there only one night and after that mooved to nicer hotel.

Our second visit here. We stayed in a ground floor non A/C room which was good value as we wanted somewhere with a pool. The room was quite small but was clean, rather shabby and in need of redecoration. Nice sit-out with a view of garden & sea in the distance. Staff very pleasant and helpful. Pool was clean &...

We enjoyed our 6 night stay at the Thiruvambadi, the pool was absolutely spotless, we had a great room with a view of the ocean and the gardens, our own fridge, TV and wireless internet. The hotel is located at the far end of the North Cliff and down a few steps. It takes about 5 minutes to walk up... More

We went to this place because of positive reviews of this place which are true indeed. Lovely ambiance, wonderful location, cooperative staff and a beautiful pool to hang-out. However, if your luck is not with you then you might feel quite bore at this place too as we did. Location of this resort is at North Cliff, far away from... More

The hotel is set a few minutes away from the busy cliff top, making it a peaceful retreat. The swimming pool is excellent -clean and well maintained. We had an non-a/c room which was one of the cheaper ones, but adequately furnished, if a little jaded looking. We had a lovely sit-out overlooking the pool. The Rough Guide said something... More
