Very poor. As we entered the property, no proper response from the reception. No room services. AC was not working, no water supply, TV out of order, pathetic staff, No bathroom door lock, No proper breakfast services. Our room was on 2nd floor so no tea/water bottle supply services. The room services only restricted to ground floor guests (All foreigners).

We thought of leaving the place on the very 1st hour but the package has stuck with this property. The property was the oldest one with very good location but not maintained properly.

If you want to enjoy at Kovalam beach, plz avoid this property...

The experience was very horrible. The property should be renamed as DHARAMSHALA - Pappukurrty beach DHARAMSHALA

Room Tip: SHOULD AVOID THIS PLACE AT FIRST PLACE thoguh this dharamshala is located at prime location - just i...

Its ok by location and amenities but we do not get good service. Rooms quality is like we use hotels in 90s years. Respond on malyali language only. Restaurant facility is also so-so. Cleanliness of hotel is ok.

I should have left at check-in but was part of bigger vacation package. Was a little concerned why I must leave my passport for at least 30 min and then again surrender passport when I checked out. That took time away from day. I was interested in the "free wifi," which was advertised but even the desk clerk couldn't get their password to work. We tried several times to get it to work but I never got wifi. When we ordered from hotel, food smelled and tasted old and didn't look right either. The room was in a beautiful place and I could see the sea. The boardwalk of the beach and view of the lighthouse were very nice.

The Best point of this Resort is loacation. Everything else is just average. Waiting for your complimentary breakfast is a frustration because of inadequate staff and kitchen. Lunch / Dinner is equally painfull, but thanks to the area there are other good restaurants around.
