“pleasent stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 14, 2012

After travelling 6 weeks around India, we have found that the best part of the country is Kerala. We spent 9 days in Kovalam in december. The hotel was clean, nice, staff was very friendly and helpful. We had a non-A/C room on the second floor with hot water, private balcony and nice view. Perfect place to relaxing, the hotel lays at the south end of Light House Beach, so it is not noisy.

As if being only 30 seconds walk away from Lighthouse beach to your room were not enough! To find then that the welcome and continued service provided by JC and Richu is as delightful as the view of the sea that greets you as they bring you early morning or indeed, any time you want it, tea , is an added bonus. To top it all comes the miracle that such a lovely place is within your budget. Ni wonder people come back time and again. I can't wait fir January 2013. Sea Flower, here I come

Amazingly breathtaking view right from your room.
Few feet distance from the sea water.
Best sea food restaurants all lined up in the same sea line.
First hotel right beside the light house so one can go to there almost anytime.
Kind owner helps you with anything he can. (Though hiring motorbikes isnt a business in this place and is difficult to get one, he found us a contact who hired us a motorbike)
We dint totally stay for 2 nights and he was kind enough to bill us just by the hours which was very economical.

Great location, virtually on the beach. Rooms are a good size. Ground floor rooms very good value but have no private sit-out . 2nd. floor rooms have private balconies with lovely views.
Doors were secured with a padlock & security appeared good as reception staff were usually around, however that proved to be our undoing! Someone did enter our room on more than one occasion and stole some money. Advice would be : take your own padlock to secure your door or request a room with a lockable cupboard for valuables.

Room Tip: 2nd floor have private balconies. Take your own padlock

This hotel is by far the best hotel in this price range and right on the Light House Beach.

Since it was mid January, the weather was not that hot, and there was enough wind from the sea to make the rooms cool, I asked for a non AC room on first floor. The tariff for non AC room during high season is 1500 Rs.+15% tax and in off season 800 Rs.+15% taxes. AC rooms are 2300 Rs.+15% Tax during season and 1500+15%tax in off season. Though it was high season but I bargained and got the off season rate. There are some economy rooms on the ground floor also, for which they would ask 700 Rs. but i think you can bargain for it also :)

My room was basic, had attached toilet with hot water, spacious and clean. The staffs were very friendly and helpful. There were mosquitoes in the room but one of the staffs, JC, gave me two liquid mosquito destroyers that helped me to have good sleep. There was a balcony in front of the room but not so private as anyone could walk in. However, my room (108) was at the corner so I did have some privacy. When I checked in, there were people in the other rooms on the same floor, but next day they shifted to the 2nd floor and the whole floor was empty :)

Initially I wanted to stay in hotel Grandsea, but when I reached kovalam, I found that the hotel is a bit far from the beach and uphill. So, I started searching for hotels near the beach which have clean, spacious and sea facing rooms. I checked few hotels but didn't like them due to darkness and lack of cleanliness. Finally, I selected Sea flower beach resort which is just on the beach and the closest to light house road.

I really loved to be in sea flower beach resort. Every night the Arabic Ocean used to sing lullaby for me and I used to get up in the morning hearing sound of the ocean. It was a heavenly experience I must say, that is why I always prefer to stay on the beach.

Room Tip: Sea facing rooms are brighter; and also ask for corner rooms. If you choose Non AC room on first flo...

As I had taken a cheap non- beach hotel on my last trip to Kovalam (a week earlier), so this time I was willing to shell out a few extra bucks for a beach side hotel. After checking various options for an hour, I finally decided on Sea Flower Hotel at the end of the Lighthouse Beach. I spent 2 nights in a ground floor room. Rooms were clean and large and staff was very friendly. The hotel being at the end of the beach doesn’t offer the best ocean view but it compensates through its quiet surroundings not frequented by hawkers and tourists. In short, if you are keen to stay at a cheap beachside hotel, Sea Flower is a “must consider" option.

Room Tip: If you really want a good ocean view, spend a little more and opt for a sea facing room on the first...
