Well located in a quiet enclave behind Lighthouse Beach - coming from the main taxi stand/car park, take the alleyway just by the Palm Beach restaurant - it is well signposted. Yes, its a narrow alleyway, but the whole of Kovalam is narrow alleyways - and no, no sea view.
As 2 long-term travellers the hotel had all we needed for 2 weeks' R&R - comfortable beds, hot water, TV with several English language channels, fridge, wi-fi and pool (in theory wi-fi only in reception, but we could get it in pur room). Friendly staff. Yes the price was a little high for an Indian hotel, but Kovalam is not cheap and all Kovalam hotels bump their prices for Xmas & New Year - it was cheaper than other hotels with a pool.
The only thing that stops me giving it 5 stars is that the decor is a bit shabby, and the room could have done with a spring clean (eg things like light switches) - but facilities-wise it was great. It just depends what your priorities are.
