Reviewed November 2, 2012

This hotel is around 1 km from beach next to sagara resort. I stayed here October 31. Hotel is average. Rooms are spacious. They have a small dining area near to swimming pool which they call as restaurant. Rooms, and room service are good. Its worth for amount paid.

Room Tip: Take a room in top floor

What would have been a very good finale to my trip to Kerala.........turned out disappointing. Apart from a swimming pool this hotel is very disappointing. The first thing you notice is no lifts, and staff looks more like that of a family and friends run place rather than professionally managed place. No proper receptionist.
I had booked for two days. This place is well away from the main beach but if you are curious enough you will find your way to a small beach which is better than main beach. But you still have to locate it first and walk some distance.
This place bites as well...literally....the mattress had ants all below the bed sheet. They seemed to have a colony inside the coir mattresses. Then the bedsheets, towels were torn & unclean. I was lucky to get hot water, but another of my friends who visited the same place had to do with cold water.
Overall this place is not at all near a beach and forget about the "Palace" part. But then Kovalam overall was a bit disappointing.

Room Tip: - No lifts....not for the elderly. - Poor ambience ....may spoil your honeymoon experience - Has a...

This is the 3rd time I have stayed here and it just gets better and better. The Food was first class, beautifully displayed and a good balance of Indian and western style. The only negative was the smell of fish from the onshore breeze but you have the option of a 2nd pool away from the beach front. Fascinating watching the fishermen every morning hauling in their nets.

The property is out of the world on a cliff with an elevator to the "Nearly" private beach. The Buildings are Quaint and some are 100 years old! it is almost a throwback to the old world charms with modern day ammenities.
The Staff is so very caring and courteous it is unbeleiveable. The place deserves 2-3 full days to truly soak in the ambience.
The food is slightly pricey but delicious!

We went to Travencore palace Beach reasort on 21th of April & 22nd April 2011. Based on the photo's and reviews of the Travancore Palace Beach Resort, we have accepted the hotel from our tour arranger but we are totally disappointed with this hotel because we are 24 family member from this three are senior citizen. this hotel does't have lift, the manager was arrogant & doesn't have manners to talk to guest.
The Rooms are big but don't have any good view from first & second floor. the toilets are not clean & the slope of floor is reveres so the bathing water log in the toilet door.
The door lock was not proper, handles are loose & air conditioning not working properly one remote used for so many rooms.
first night we were not able to sleep because lights gone at 2am & there was no one to attend the complain on phone. no hot water before 8 am & swimming pool also not maintain. but this not so....
The service here is quite bad as well as you have to wait hours for your food.
This hotel is totally different from what we saw in the internet.
If you decide to go to Kovalam, please check out the hotels on the beach itself....it is much more cheaper and better than this one.
So i request to all travellers not visit this hotel

Regards

My wife and I stayed in this hotel in november and during this time there was a fire in one of buildings. We were woken up at 3am due to the electrical fire and moved rooms. The room we were moved to was much smaller. Then we had to ask to be moved to a comparable room. They did this many hours later. We then asked for some sort of discount for our troubles during our holiday and the managers were quite rude. The said they would discuss the matter with upper management and reply to us and now one month later I have still heard nothing. I do not recommend this hotel.
