Hotel Hill and Sea View


The hotel location was good and the view from the room was great. But the service was poor. We had occupied 2 rooms which while having the same rate, did not have uniform facilities . Food was largely unavailable. There was a very nice looking meny but we could have only tea at the desired times. All guests at the hotel were complaining about the food and the service. The top floor lifts were also constaantlt breaking down. Definitely not recommended to stay. The only advantage was it was a little near the beach

Great location stunning view and awesome food


We traveled to Kovalam in the month of May 2017. It was a holiday trip with my family. We booked this hotel over through a phone call. The destination Kovalam was a wonderful place. The hotel was located on the top of a hill. It was easy to find out and reach. The interior and exterior appearance of the hotel was so attractive. We booked an AC room. All the amenities were provided in the room. The bathroom was well cleaned and hygienic. The bed was clean and comfortable. All the sanitary products were provided in the bathroom. The front office staff was friendly and helpful. They did check in and check out quickly. Lift facility was available there. The restaurant facility was available in the hotel. We enjoyed a beautiful view from the restaurant also. We had Kerala food from there. It was very tasty and delicious. The swimming pool facility was available there. It was wonderful. The service staff were co operative and polite. They were provided all requirements on time. They helped to carry the luggage to the room. We will visit this hotel next time. We strongly recommend this hotel to other travelers.

Hotel not good


We went to Kovalam in the month of April 2017. It was an official trip with family. We booked this hotel through online process. The destination Kovalam was an awesome place to visit. The hotel appearance was good with the interior and exterior look. The service staff were not responded to our needs. We booked an AC room but the AC was not working proper. The electricity was not always available in the room. It was not a comfortable room. We had food from there but the food was too bad. The receptionist was not polite they don't know how to behave with the customers. Lift facility was there but it was not working.

I would recommend Kovalam to others but not the resort.


It was my holiday trip to Kovalam with family. I booked the hotel through a package online. The location of the hotel was convenient we reached there without any issue. The overall look of the resort was nice. The front office staff were helpful and cooperative. The room was well maintained neat and clean we hardly stayed in the room we were out most of the time. The washroom was stinking. The restaurant and everything there was terrible it was not clean. The way to the restaurant was horrible we had to walk a lot and climb 10 floors as the lift was not working. We ordered juice over there it was more of water. And the charges were unreasonable. What we get for 30 rs for a lime soda that was 150/- in the restaurant. The service at the hotel was prompt and responsive they did come at one call. I did take food from the hotel they did provide complimentary breakfast with the stay. I didn't like the food much the food quality was not good. I did use their laundry service and it was not good they charged us extra for the clothes and it was not fair it was manipulative. I stayed here for two days. The internet was working fine in the room the television was not working there was no Hindi channel we changed the remote still it was not working. The washroom was stinking so much that we had to keep it closed the full time or else the whole room would have full odour.
