This is a quality property with great amenities, food and service. The rooms are excellent, four star standard. Love the pool as well. Located close to Hawa beach, and they have a shuttle all day. The food is a bit expensive, but it's actually quite good. The staff helped us with everything including even sending someone to buy medicines for... More

This is one of the luxurious property near Kovalam Beach. The rooms are very nice, clean and tidy. The hotel has a very nice swimming pool. The only drawback about the hotel is the pictures of the rooms shown on website are definitely not the room you get booked for. Looking at the picture of the basic room on websites... More

We booked through a leading online travel portal – the booking showed ‘Tom’s Inn’ but when we checked in, we were in for a treat as we were upgraded to a sea facing room @ Turtle on the Beach. The room was very nicely done with antique solid wood furniture, lending a very rich feel to the room. The bathroom... More

When your travelling with children, this hotel is an excellent choice, because of the familiy rooms. It's a nice and convenient hotel. But a little worn out. Not worth 5 stars. Sorry. That used to be. They have to upgrade everything a bit. From the pool to the woodwork and paintwork. The internet is slow and you can only use... More
