“Average hotel, but amazing location.”
Reviewed August 18, 2014 via mobile

Hello, this hotel is located at a very convenient location at Kovalam beach you can reach both light house as well as the bus stop within 5 minutes. The quality of service as well as the room is slightly below average. With a little poor bathroom facility where you would find very old fashioned wash basin and broken toilet you may also encounter buckets and mugs which are probably never cleaned and changed.Beds are okay and if you are lucky you would get a clean set of bedsheet n blanket. It is advisable to go for this hotel only when you are looking for sth cheap and willing to spend more time on beach rather than in hotel and eat in nearby better hotels.( I will suggest to visit rooftop hotels which offer good variety of both continental as well as Desi tadka.) The swimming pool in the front and excellent sea view makes me to give it 3 out of 5 stars but it actually deserves 2.

Hotel has everything it should have, apart from management who don't know how to en cash that amazing property.
All the "Sea Flower" rooms have full view of Sea. Hotel has a large Swimming pool which they were cleaning during my 2 days visit so never got chance to take a dip.
Rooms are spacious, big bathroom, wardrobe, small fridge. Room had good AC, but not Remote, guy had set it to 17 C so no complaints.
Worst is the Restaurant - Restaurant is sea facing, but as it was poorly managed I didnt see anyone having food except few lazy people like me who are staying in the Hotel and want room service. Hotel package includes breakfast, however that is a limited breakfast and that too compulsion is that you cant get it served in the room. You need to go to Restaurant to have the breakfast.

Breakfast menu they offer is either 4 bread toast, omlet, tea and juice or puri-sabzi, tea and juice.

**Hotel offers free WIFI - Amazing part is I didnt find signal anywhere in the Hotel to acces :p

I will suggest Pappukutty as it offers affordable and good scenic rooms.

In one word its was just WONDERFUL................the sea view from the hotel balcony and the entire surrounding truly mesmerized me and my husband.The hotel staff and the entire management was really good and polite.Its neat and clean specially the hotel rooms, washrooms and the pool.The food served was also good. Mostly the Manager was very polite.Next time If I visit Kovalam will surely stay over here.

You read the title correct!
The location is excellent. It is at the middle of the best beach in Kovalam. You step out of hotel and you are on the beach. That is one of two good thing you see there. The second good thing is the pool. That is maintained well and also has small baby pool. The restaurant is pathetic. They don't care you get food or not. When we stayed there there was a party on the roof top and all restaurant staff were engaged for that. They asked us to book the dinner and come back after one hour. When we went after one hour they said it will take 30 minutes more as they are busy on party. I asked them if you don't want to serve checked in guests when they such programs, why allow check in? People could go to other hotels.
Next day morning breakfast time was 7:30. While we we were on the pool around 8:00 there was a big noise and a lady was scolding the restaurant people loudly. The reason was that the food is not served. Such is the situation of the restaurant.
Rooms are not great.AC did not work in one of the rooms we had booked. We complained 3 times and they did something an said it will cool after sometime which never happened. Also the other AC gets shuts off frequently due to voltage fluctuation (as per them). One good thing they did was to reduce Rs.200 from the bill of first room
If you want to book book a room in this hotel, expect following things
1. AC may not work. You may end up in an oven considering the climate in Kovalam
2. You may not get food in time and end up fighting with them :) or eating from some where else
3. Your breakfast included in rate is not buffet breakfast but a limited number of items and limited quantity. You got 2 choices. 1. Bread toast, Egg(boiled o fried), One glass of juice, Tea or coffee. 2. Poori, Egg(boiled o fried), One glass of juice, Tea or coffee.
4. Non-friendly staff. The only person who talked nicely as the security person
5. Rooms are just average and you get lots of noice from AC outlet inside the room
6. The bathroom door could not be locked from outside

Two very good things are;
1. The location
2. The pool

Only the location is good which attracts tourist for this resort.I stayed from 6 april -9 april 2014 and i had to change my room thrice at the time of check in itself.Firstly, because the room was not clean, second room had non functional ac and third room had dim lights.Also,the hotel staff was not at all courteous in changing the rooms and showed irrational behavior and we had to shift the refrigerator and luggage ourselves.There was no room service for cleaning and the bathroom was equal to a public toilet.

Room Tip: Don't go for this hotel if you are going to kovalam

I had been to this hotel in jan 2014.
I would prefer to stay in this hotel again.
Location very good.
You can just go & jump in sea ,enjoy it get back in swimming pool followed by breakfast ,lunch,dinner ,what so ever.
I have travelled too many countries & would advise people to stay in this hotel.

Room Tip: look for rooms facing swimming pool or facing sea.
