The most convenient part of this hotel was its vicinity to the beach. The Arabian sea view room had a great view and one can clearly listen to the sound of the waves. The hotel also provides a drop facility to the beach till 6 pm. The hotel staff was very friendly. Initially we had some issues with the housekeeping...

Staff very polite efficient. Rooms are decent. My only complaint is that there were two couples from North India who played loud Punjabi music at the public pool ie hotel pool no consideration for the other guests. When I complained to the hotel staff they did nothing about it. Most of the people by the pool left.

Stayed for couple of nights it was an awesome experience, good sea facing balcony. The service and hospitality is overwhelming, Kovalam beach at a walkable distance. The Catamaran restaurant arranged a delightful candle light dinner which was the fantastic part of the stay. Looking for a chance to visit again!!!
