We stayed here in one of the "apartments" for 2 months ..
This was definitely the "budget wing of Faulty Towers"
The only reason we survived here was because we bought our own cleaning equipment. The "staff" only had a straw broom which just spread the dirt around. Nothing was cleaned since the cleaners only lasted a week before they left because the owner did not pay their salary.. The owner refused to spend any money to repair or replace drapes or non working lights or faulty plumbing. We bought whatever was necessary for our apartment.
When we arrived our bed did not have ordinary bed bugs... it had termites in the wood frame! After a month they brought in a new bed and finally gave us sheets that fit.. but as usual were full stains, rips, but at least clean. We did have a TV although half the channels came in fuzzy. The internet electricity was provided from one of the guest rooms - and when the guest turned off the lights for the night the internet no longer worked. The management openly throw the garbage over the wall to where our kitchen window looked out.. everyday burning it (including plastic refuse) and the smoke blew into to our apartment every morning with a very toxic odor.- One day they decided to clean it up and were planning to plant a pineapple patch. However, the following day they started throwing the garbage there again. So each morning you wake to the odor of burning plastic which hung around until late afternoon when the sea breeze blew .
The hotel nextdoor (Ocean Park) is really the same property. One day the "kitchen" on the property ran out of cooking gas with a load of "guests" not happy waiting for their eggs. They came to us wanting to take away our cooking gas.. I knew we would never see it again so I had to tell them no...
We usually had hot water - but the other building (Ocean Park) ran out of water many times during our time there. The guests were told to go swimming in the ocean.
Many guests were upset that the hotel did not have a backup generator because the power is out a lot of the time, especially during the high season.
Overall it was an OK stay. We enjoyed our sea view balcony and location the most. I must add that we were entertained regularly by watching the other "guests" yelling - all saying they were going to report the hotel's owner to the police for a multitude of misrepresentations in advertisements for both Kavitha and Ocean Park Resorts... Beware... do not pay in advance.
