Conveniently located and good service


My stay was in Kovalam Beach Retreat. The destination and location of the hotel was good and was conveniently located. The appearance of the hotel was very good internally and externally. There was no delay in check-in and check-out. The staff members were helpful and friendly in service. The room allotted to me was spacious and it was well maintained with all required amenities in working condition with hot water facility. We had food in the hotel and it was good in quality and taste. I did not utilize any activities in the hotel.

Cooperative staff; good quality food; average room


It is located little far away at about 1 km distance from the city and staff were good, polite and cooperative, they responded very well in the midnight also.

There was maintained swimming pool and gym facility. Hotel appearance and the interior was average, the room was booked directly and there was no problem in check-in and check-out. I went here with friends for relaxation in March 2012.

Tariff at this hotel very low; cooperative staffs


The location and sightseeing at this hotel was excellent. The tariff at this hotel is very low. The balcony of the room provided to us was sea facing. The staff at this resort were excellent and very co-operative. We had a bad experience when a local tour guide fled with our money, but the owner and staff helped us to enquire about him. The overall appearance of the resort was very good. Complimentary breakfast was provided by the hotel. There was absolutely no problem in check-in and check-out. There is a gym in the resort. The money spent at this resort was worth it.

Excellent food and average activities


The hotel is not conveniently located to travel. The staff were cooperative and responsive. The room was not so spacious, it was congested but the interior and exterior were attractive. Amenities in the room were in good working condition. There was no view from the room. Food was excellent, both veg and non-veg were provided. There were refreshing activities organized but it was average. There was no delay in check-in and check-out. The hotel was good for the value of money.

Room service is good and on-time


I have been to Trivandrum to meet some of my friends and chanced to stay in Kovalam Beach Retreat for two days/ three nights. The destination is no doubt a global attraction, but the resort is a very maintained and peaceful one. The rooms are spacious and clean. Room service is good and on-time . . The location is also a plus. You can take a boat in the backwaters as it is very nearby. The location is very comfortable and strategic. I am also happy with the appearance of the resort. My wife loved the swimming pool in the resort, and the late evening "sword" fight shown by local artists. The service was definitely top notch and I thoroughly enjoying and I intend to come back here again.

Perfect location; walkable distance from the sea


The best thing about this resort is that is in front of the sea. Just walkable distance from the sea and there is everything in the hotel. For relaxing and leisure like, swimming pool, bar, games, restaurant. It was a perfect place and perfect hotel for retreat.

Average experience, bad maintenance


We e stayed in Kovalam Beach Retreat for 2 days. The outer appearance of hotel was average, as was the location. The sooner we entered the hotel; our expectation went down like sand goes from hand. Swimming pool was so dirty, as maintenance had not been done for more than 2 months. Rooms were below average. Though being air conditioned, we had to struggle for 25 min to get the remote and get the A/C started. Bath room were like that of a 1950's house. Basic facilities like water and complimentary breakfast were very bad. We waited for more than 30 min and then left totally unsatisfied. Waited for 10 minutes to get chuttney for idly. By the time chuttney came, idly became like stone. My recommendation would be to stay anywhere but not here, if you do not wana spoil your vacation mood.
