We had 6 nights at this lovely hotel. The rooms were clean and big with a large balcony to sit and enjoy the views and sunset. Food was very good, but try ordering off the menu instead of the buffet, they have a wonderful creative chef. Hotel not on beach, and is a good 7 minutes walk downhill, but get a tuk tuk or taxi back if you don't want a climb.
Not got a bar at the moment, but hopeful to get a license shortly. Great smiling staff, always happy to help.

This was our first visit to India having stayed at Fort Cochin and Ernakulum in mid January. We stayed at TTOTB from 19th to 27th weather was great and the hotel lovely. We were in room 305 on the street and reception level above the pool. As part of our booking we had bed breakfast and evening meal included. This option was very good with the evening al a carte being very good my only criticism being that we had 3 buffet evening meals and to be honest it was average. The restaurant staff were very friendly.
The room was very nice, clean and large. Reception staff were efficient without being over the top. The location is overlooking the beach Hawes Beach next to Lighthouse beach; it was ok for us but does mean you have a steep, but short climb up to the hotel.
The Leela and Taj hotels are rated higher then TTOTB and justify that but if TTOTB is trying to compete then it’s not in the same class and the room rates are a bit high. There is some evidence of damp on the outside wall below the Penthouse suite, but I could not comment if this was reflected in the rooms below. Overall a good hotel with great views and rooms which i would go back too.

Back Oct/Nov a friend and I travelled to India on a tour and this was the last hotel on the tour. Certainly it was the best for last. From the moment we stepped into the beautiful hotel lobby until we checked out we most definitely enjoyed our stay.

Our room was on the ground floor which usually I have issue with by not here, the room was large, comfortable with a beautiful balcony looking out over the pool and out beyond to the beach just down the road. Both inside and outside were air conditioned which was a nice touch.

The food was lovely - buffet style with something for everyone and very plentiful. The pool area was nice and clean with lovely loungers and towels provided.

While we were there the hotel was relatively quiet which was nice, I'm not sure how much busy it gets as we were only there for 2 days but it was 2 days we enjoyed massively.

The very minor down points I would mention were
1) The musak piped in from outside was quite loud
2) The wifi was not free
3) The bathroom was a little on the small side

Having said that, these were very minor complaints and would not at all stop me going back or recommending to a friend

This hotel was ideally located, not too far from the city. We booked it after hearing about it from friends.Being an ex hotelier did look at things very critically.It did surpase expectations. To start the rooms were very neatly done. We felt very close to nature.It was very relaxing after the hectic life of the city that we live in. The atmosphere was great. Kids loved the beach which is really close. It is a clean beach when compared to other resorts.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. I did get to meet the boss Mr Mahesh. He seemed to know a lot about the guest staying and was very happy to hear that I was a hotelier once. He did seem to have got may things right. i did mention to him lack of bar facilities, which he said that it would be there soon and was work in progress. It was the only thing I missed, Did compensate by going and getting some beers in the local shops and downing them on the beach.
as it was just a two night stay I tried the room service for breakfast on the second morning.Have to say it was great. Good timing and good presentation. Could not try all the restaurants due to our short stay but the decor was brilliant.
Thanks to all the staff for making it a wonderful experience of God'sown country.
