I went to this hotel only looking into tripadvisor reviews and stayed two nights 25th October.Unfortunately this is worst ever experience.It looks more like a lodge outside any railway station in India and staff is not at all trained.room is 3 times over priced as it comes under budget category.Names are fancy but i stayed in ocean room which had lizards in the room.(Can't believe).No proper breakfast(they say complimentary)
If you don't find a hotel in Kovalam prefer to stay in trivandrum rather than thinking about this hotel as there is nothing but disappointment left in store for you.
Hope management seriously considers this review and stops fooling fellow travellors.

Room Tip: All rooms are pathetic!!!!

Beautiful boutique hotel seconds from the beach, great staff, extremely helpful and polite. Superb breakfast. No extra faff. Good laundry service, offers ayurvedic massage. Honeymoon- esque views from deluxe rooms. Recommend rooms 301 and 202. Wifi is free.

This was the last hotel of our honeymoon trip. Andwas a very disappointing ending of the trip.
Interior and location of hotel is very good. but staff is illiterate. the room's interior was good but lizards were roaming inside the room. there was no hot water in the room. I called the reception several times, but instead of sending somebody they were giving me instructions that how to use the tap to get hot water.
it was of no use to do any damn thing. finally i went to the reception personally. they sent a person with me. who tried doing many things. finally just turned the fish (fish shaped tap) in 180 degrees. and said keep the water running for half an hour then you will get hot water. i did the same. but it was just a joke. finally we couldn't take the bath tht day and went to the beach.

when we came back, hotel was supposed to arrange a candle light dinner along with a wedding cake. which they denied to do. I called up our trip agent he said we will arrange it. they arranged the dinner ( in bulbs, no candle light) without cake. when i asked for thecake the manager (illiterate manager) said no we are not told for the cake.

Then the food was super pathetic and we had to drop it and find something outside.

I suggest please please don't go to this hotel for your honeymoon at least. you will remember this nightmare forever.

Room Tip: In case you are going to stay here (please don't stay) insist for sea facing room.

We checked in there at Kovalam Beach Hotel on April 22nd, and it was a lovely stay.
The hotel located very close to the beach and the bus stand. Stand away from the crowded clusters of the light house beach. We stayed there 3 nights, had ayurveda massage and it was wonderful experience. Staff were very friendly and ready to help.
I will surely recommend it.

A rustic hotel which is great value for money; the view alone was worth the price we paid. The rooms were clean but the daily 'make my room' was literally that; they made the bed but didn't change the sheets until we took them off the bed ourselves.

The air conditioning was a bit noisy but it worked and the curtains were not dark enough to stop me waking up at day break.

Overall a good hotel with beautiful sea views from the bed as well as the balcony.

Room Tip: A seaview room. Level 3 was best for unobstructed views as the top of the coconut trees were at leve...
