“Good staff & decent room”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2013

We stayed here for 7 days during our travels around Kerala, our room was on the 2nd floor overlooking the pool on a B&B basis. The room was a good size, clean, we had fridge, tv, fan and air con, the beds were comfortable with thicker matresses than you normally find in india, they offer a laudry service also. The staff at reception are excellent, I needed to see a doctor, they arranged for one of the boy's to take us to the hotel's own rickshaw which took us to the local doctor and there was no charge for this.
The restaurant was fairly priced, a good selection of food, the staff were all very friendly, service was sometimes a bit slow at breakfast even when we were the only people there but nothing to complain about, generous portions whenever you ate there.
If you are looking for excellent vegetarian food do go behind the main resort front, there are several alleways, the pathway at the side of the Jeevan leads to the Lonely Planet restaurant, they serve the best vegetarain food we tasted in our 3 weeks of travelling and we ate there frequently (we are not vegetarian). One restaurant to avoid on the beach front is the Spice Garden, terrible service and bland food.
We would be more than happy to stay at the Jeevan again.

Room Tip: Opt for a room over looking the pool on the 1st or 2nd floor.

We stayed here for two days.This resort has excellent view of sea.It has its own swimming pool and the hotel staff was helpful.But the rooms look like not worth for money we pay.Rooms were spacious and clean.This resort has its own bar and restaurant.Food served in the restaurant is good.bedsheets changed everyday.

I was at this resort on last weekend with my friends for kovalam trip. This repsort has excellent view of Sea.Rooms are neat and clean enough.Staff is courteyous and helpful.
But i will like to highlight few negative feedback too..
1)They discriminate between indians and foregin guest.
2)Dont have spirit to serve their guests.
3)Food is very costly.(double or triple price)
4)They dont have complimentry "buffet" breakfast. they will serve you only one item for breakfast that too limited means you can get only once.
If you order other items they are too costly..it may cost you 300 rs alone for a satisfactory complete breakfast.
5) Management is very poor.. they dont know what guest expect from them.

At the time of checkout, i gave same feedback to manager Mr. Mahesh.. so i hope they will improve.

Overall this is a good property with average service.I dont recommend this resort if you wanna stay at kovalam.

Room Tip: Choose sea shore category.Nice view of sea.

We stayed in a room with AC since we hadn't got accustomed to the heat. But the AC did not help sleep at all. It was far too loud and the water that was condensed dripped down at the bath room floor, making it a bit too slippery.

However, the hotel was clean, sheet were changed every day even though it wasn't necessary. Breakfast meant tea/coffee with omelet and toast. It wasn't possible to get an Indian breakfast.

Paying for a room with ocean view sounds like a good idea, sitting at home, dreaming of the waves and the sea. But unfortunately I found it far too noisy. After four nights we changed to a hotel for the third of the price where the AC was discreet and the room a bit bigger.

The staff were friendly and the manager even more so. The wifi didn't work in the room, only in the lobby and at the restaurant.

It wasn't worth the money, you can easily get far better hotels for less money close to the beach in Kovalam.

Fantastic beach view. When I arrived, I was a bit disappointed as I had booked the semi sea view room (which actually doesnt have any view of the sea from within the room). However, Mahesh the manager went out of his way to upgrade me to the Exotic sea view room and this is one of the best view rooms I've ever stayed. I will certainly be back with family.

Room Tip: Book the exotic sea view if available (300 series)

Nice view as located on the beach with swimming pool facility but no room service and rooms are also not very good. Location wise very good but service is poor. Overall good experience but rooms and service can be improved.
