"Very good service and tasty food served"

Posted 22 May

I had been to Kovalam in the month of December 2016 and stayed in the Turtle on the Beach. It was my holiday trip with family. My travel destination was average. My hotel location was very good because of transportation facility. The appearance of the hotel was very good as it is very hygienic. Hotel front office was good since they are always available with correct information. I booked my room direct at hotel. The house keeping services in the hotel were good because of responsible quick service. Rooms which we stayed in were very good because of available facilities. The food in the hotel was very good because we can get fresh and tasty food.

"Good hotel in service and facilities"

Posted 6 Oct, 2016

The hotel is located conveniently to travel hence I did not find any difficulties in finding the hotel. The appearance of the hotel was good both in interior and exterior part. The staff members were friendly and good in service. The room was spacious and maintained well with all the amenities in proper condition. There was no delay during sign in and sign out process. The hotel is valuable for the money.

"We had booked Turtle on the beach, Kovalam & could..."

Posted 29 May, 2010

We had booked Turtle on the beach, Kovalam & could bargain a deal with reservations as it was a low volume period. From airport till hotel, it was a 10-15 minutes journey through one of the small Kerela highways. We didn’t complain as there were lots of “View Points” to click on the way. Once at the hotel, we were greeted by much warmth and traditional \'Tilak” by front office staff. Kiran, their front office in-charge, ushered us to balcony that had an amazing view of the sea, light house, fishermen boats, beach accompanied by carefully picked murals & sculptures dotting the reception area.

"Excellent hotel with friendly staff "

Posted 3 Jan, 2016

Excellent hotel with friendly and professional staff. Lovely modern rooms with great service. Really nice and clean spa with professionals who will massage your ailments away! Mr Karan Bakshi the GM of the hotel is a true hotel professional who ensures that every guest who stays in the hotel is happy and satisfied and leaves wanting more! Lovely breakfast and dinner buffet arrangements. The only downside is that as the hotel is directly on the beach in order to get to it you would need to walk for at least 10 mins down a steep hill or get a rickshaw or the hotel shuttle in order to get to the beach.

"Very nice hotel with all modern amenities"

Posted 22 Mar, 2016

Myself along with wife stayed at this hotel in the month of April 2015. We were welcomed in traditional Kerala culture. Front office staff were very courteous. We were given beach view room. Room was very nice and clean and was equipped with all modern amenities. Hotel Restaurant is huge and offers large variety of South Indian as well as North Indian food. Hotel provides complimentary shuttle service for beach which is hardly 200 mts from hotel. Drop facility is till 6 pm only. All in all, a very nice hotel and we had good experience there.

The surrounding of the hotel was good. It was situated on the beach. The hotel was very good. The staffs at the hotel were good, helpful and friendly. Check-in and check-out procedure was not delayed. The hotel appeared modern from both the sides. The room was spacious, neat, clean and well maintained. The amenities in the room were functioning well. Hot and cold water was provided all the time. Sea view could be seen from the room. They served both veg and non veg food. The quality of the food was good and price was reasonable. The hotel had provided the activities. They had also arranged the sightseeing trip. The hotel was value for money. I would like to recommend this hotel to other travelers.
