We went to Kovalam for our first anniversary trip after Varkala and since we planned to stay in Kovalam for just half a day and night, we looked for an average priced resort and we zeroed on this.

Pros

Very accessible to Lighthouse beach or Hawa beach.
Value for Money

Cons

Service was just OK.

The rooms were good and there was value for money. There was no UPS / generator in power cuts. We had to wait for 30-45 mins for the power. The room we stayed had no hot water connection (Could be rectified). For a non Ac room it costed Rs. 1200 using clear trip. This was a good deal., considering the sea proximity.

The lighthouse beach was rated less than Varkala, but we found it otherwise. The light house beach is a must visit place. The deepness reduces gradually and there are no rocks in the beach. It is a great place to play.

Room Tip: The deluxe rooms have direct view to the sea.

We happen to stay at Seaview Palace in one of their AC rooms ,this was possibly our worst experiance : mosquitos all around but no repellant provided we had to buy All out. Toilet not cleaned and exhaust fan not working . TV cable rent not paidto the company hence no channels.
Erratic power supply without back up ,Our AC stopped working and it too several hours to fix it .
Worst is no body is available at front desk and the room boys have terrible attitude.Noroom service available. Compared to Hotel Marigold it has no will to serve or make the guests comfortable here the staff seemed make the guests feel obliged by their smallest actions

Room Tip: First floor is better ,come to hotel prepared to take the room only must carry all your requirements with you ,no help available.

We spent more days in one of the superior rooms (with AC). Rooms are basic, and with really bad odor coming from the bathroom. Although we complained several times the staff could not solve this. Hotel is noisy since the restaurant of the hotel is playing music loud till late at night.
