well, I have to agree with most of the reviews.
Say yes to this hotel if you are looking for beach view as it is the only hotel right in front of the beach at Hawah Beach with a balcony
Rooms are shabby,dirty and sandy.Soiled towel and bedsheet.
Housekeeping staffs are plain lazy,they never clean your room or change the towel
Worst breakfast spread.we ended up eating outside
They say,there is a swimming pool...BUT it is not in a usable condition
Nevertheless, staffs at frontdesk, the manager and owner did offered us a helping hand when needed.
Location is very good as it is in the middle of hawah and Lighthouse beach
I do hope the hotel will go through a major facelift

The hotel is located at a very good Location but the same is maintained terribly.. we booked an executive room which i think was our biggest mistake on the trip... but we were lucky enough to get our rooms upgraded and thanks to staff for upgradation coz if the rooms were not upgraded we would not be able to sleep in the executive rooms. The superior rooms are also average types but it provides a great beach view from the rooms. You can not keep any edibles in your rooms because of ants which are there in hell lot of volume..The towels are in such condition that u can not use them....
The buffet breakfast provided is also average with same juice served everyday
and what to say about swimming pool.. its awfully maintained with all the dirt in it and you can never expect to enjoy a pool in this hotel..
The staff is good and will help u to the best possible extent but somethings are beyond their control and they can not be blamed for that...
to the travellers i must say think twice before booking this property..
and to the owners i must say that please do maintain because the location is good and requires only a proper maintenance and a facelift...

This the amazing hotel near the beach. I would like to thanks manager Venkatsh because he upgraded our rooms from standered to premium without any charge. Hotel is upfront of the beach and they have very good sunset point also.

This hotel probably has the best location in all of Kovalam beach..bang on the main entrance to Hawa and Lighthouse beaches, with balconies facing the wide blue expanse of the sea. The beach is just in front of the hotel and you can listen to the sound of the waves crashing whole day. I spent a lot of time sitting on the balcony watching the fishermen bring in the day's catch of fish and the tiny fishing boats sailing in the horizon.
The hotel's restaurant is not that good but all the other restaurants in Lighthouse Beach are within 5 min.walking distance and you can spend time choosing what to eat and where. You can also walk around the beach in the evening looking at the handicrafts items and jewellery on display in the small shops along the seaside promenade. I loved walking along the beach every evening.
But be aware that cleanliness and service in the hotel are not up to the mark at all. The washroom, bedsheets, sofas and walls had stains. The cleaning staff is lazy and doesn't come to clean the rooms every day. The interiors are sandy and dirty with guests bringing in sand from the beach and noone cleaning it up regularly. So if these things matter to you a lot, in that case you should avoid this hotel. The hotel is quite shabby and definitely needs a facelift.
The staff want to help but are not efficient. I had asked them to arrange for a cab which they couldn't and didn't even get back to me on that. There is no travel desk at the hotel or cabs hired by the hotel.
But as I said, if sea-facing location is what you are looking for, then this is the best!

I with my family visited this hotel 2-3 days back. It was the biggest mistake of ours to choose this hotel coz there are neither required staff members nor the daily required stuff. We have called them at least 7-8 times for the towel but they denied that they are not having towels. Even the service was ridiculous. Can't suggest any one to visit this hotel. Only good thing in it is that it is next to the beach.
