This is the third time we have stayed at Hotel Seaface and we love it. The staff are very friendly and welcome us back as old friends. They are helpful, polite and smile all the time. Everything is done in 'Indian time' of course. The hotel is situated right on the beach, but also has a pool which although small is more than enough to cool down in and for us to do our morning swimming.
The rooms are very clean, but could do with some nice bright white paint to lighten them up and when we first stayed had vases of flowers put out each day which was a nice touch. The bathrooms are in need of updating it is true and the hot water does take a while to come through, but hey this is india and good things always arrive eventually if you wait long enough !
The food served on the terrace overlooking the beach is fantastic. Huge choice, loads of seafood from that mornings catch and available all day. They have cultural evenings of local music which we thought would bore us after a while and was actually rather good.
The beaches are crowed after about 4pm when the local families come down to stroll, but we rather like talking to them and the sunsets are wonderful. The sea can be very dangerous, but that makes this a great place for surfing and bodyboarding, when the surf is up ! There are lifeguards up and down the beaches to watch the swimmers.
You won't always find alcohol at the beach food shacks here depending on the mood of the local establishment, but Seaface has a licence and alcohol is always available there. Trivandrum is a cheap taxi ride away and has great markets and interests.
