“Nice location, average service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

The experience has been good and not so good.Stayed during last week of Dec 2012.Hotel was almost fully occupied.Hassle free check in.Room was AC Garden view.Reached late in the evening so no view from balcony.However, could see the light house and hear the sea waves.Big clean room and clean toilet.TV was old and reception was very poor.Enquired about laundry and was told that it will be collected next day morning.Dinner at restaurant was ONLY BUFFET so we opted for room service.Presentation was good with dishes covered in cling film.We were three so it was nice to see a third bed already laid out with cover and blanket.However when we asked for an extra towel, we had to make about 5-6 calls and wait for more than an hour.
Next day morning, when I went to the balcony, I could see a small garden but more than that I could see the sea! What a nice sight.A sea facing room for a garden view price.But another bitter part.When I rang to get laundry service, I was curtly told that the laundry boy had not come so no laundry service.We had to spend a good part of the day to wash and dry the clothes.A tip: Thankfully the split AC hot air blower in the balcony dried the clothes in no time!! Nice walkable distance from the beach.Extremely clear water and white sand.Buffet breakfast at the sea view restaurant was great.There are three swimming pools but we did not use them.Only problem is that there are stairs and stairs to climb up & down for the beach / reception/reception.So may be a problem for senior citizens.Service standard can be discounted considering that it was peak season.On the whole, a nice experience.

Room Tip: Only buffet service for lunch and dinner at the restaurant so if you want a la carte, you have to ha...

12 of us family members stayed at this resort from 26-28 Dec 2012.It was the worst kind of nightmare for us.Everything was bad from service , ambiance,hygiene levels,the staff behavior was at its worst.
1)my mom in law ordered tea at 7.15 27th morng and was told no room service can be done as buffet breakfast has started.on 28th morng she ordered tea at 6.30 am but was told the guy has not reached so no room service.The reception guy said it was not his problem.we had to reach reception in our night suits to order morning tea.After tempers went loud,tea finally arrived at 8 am.
2)the room werent cleaned properly.we went to the beach on 26th eveng so the bed had some beach sand .even after the room was cleaned the next day the bed was full of sand and just neatly covered with a blanket.
3)there were spiders in the bathroom.
4)the topping on the cake was when we were leaving because we complained of bad service and demanded to meet the GM,one of the staff tried to show us some MUSCLE POWER and pick a physical fight.On finally speakg to the GM (who was on leave that day) he said it was not his problem and offered us a discount.
MORAL OF THE STORY:ITS A SHABBY,FILTHY, SICK PLACE and please book another hotel if you have a choice.TRIPADVISOR:pls delist the hotel

Room Tip: just dont choose this resort..its not a resort its a third class shady hotel

We got Sea View A/C room of Sagara Beach Resort by Paradise holidays. We had a wonderful stay here. The resort was real cool and rooms were great. The bathroom was sparkling clean and our room faced the sea and there is a sit in balcony which is also quite spacious. Loved the place with the sea roaring away at night. lovely stay. very near to kovalam beach.

Room Tip: Try to Get room with Beach Facing balcony.

We have been to Sagara Beach Resort on the 19th Dec & 20th Dec 2012 and our experience was horrible. The rooms are not maintained properly, staff do not understand what is meant by hospitality. Rooms are of low grades, I do not understand how still they call them self as a 3 Star category hotels. However the food prices are too high for the standard currently maintained. I stayed in many star hotels, however have never experienced such a worst service. I would strongly recommend never stay in this hotel, there are other better hotels in Kovalam.

Room Tip: Never book a room in Sagara Beach Resort

Big Name, Low Quality.
heard much about it.. but the resort is poorely maintained and not well managed.
I celebrated Christmas eve this year 2012 in the resort, The staff were confused and were not able to handle the guests in the hotel. The rooms were dirty, and NOT well maintained.
The only good thing in Hotel is Sight, view is good. Thats It...!!!
